Aims to help casinos and others wanting to better understand the potential of the Game to System protocol

Radical Blue Gaming, a developer of software applications for the Gaming Standards Association’s protocols, is offering free copies of their tools to casinos and other interested parties wanting to better understand the potential of the Game to System (G2S) protocol.

This offer includes student versions of RadBlue’s G2S host simulator (RGS), EGM simulator (RST), and Protocol Analyzer (RPA) – perfect for learning about G2S before it arrives in the casino. Developed for the G2S Certified Engineer courses offered by GSA University, the student versions are functionally identical to the production versions except the tools communicate only with each other.

For information on obtaining complimentary student licenses, go to the RadBlue Web site (www.radblue.com) or contact Russ Ristine (russ@radblue.com). Product demonstrations for RPA and RST can be found at www.radblue.com/demos/demos.htm. GSA will have information available on the free student tools in its booth at the upcoming Global Gaming Expo. GSA will be in booth #2192.

“We are very excited that RadBlue is offering free student versions of these toolkits,” said Peter DeRaedt, GSA president. “Our members have been working very hard for the past three years to develop and perfect the G2S protocol, and the result is nothing less than astounding. Now, with these student versions of the toolkits, developers and other users can become more familiar with G2S and the incredible potential it holds.”

Russ Ristine, vice president of Radical Blue, noted that with nearly 2,000 copies of Radical Blue’s products in use by developers, casinos, and test labs, the tools have become the reference implementation for GSA’s protocols. “We’ve worked closely with GSA on the development and deployment of G2S, and believe that now is the perfect time to make our products available to casinos and others, so they can experience the amazing capabilities of G2S first hand.”
