A lot of chips across the table, and coins in the slot over these past many years … It’s usually around this time in one’s life when
of “the Good Old days” starts to mean something.
Perhaps reminiscences, or perhaps nostalgia, or perhaps just the memory of a much younger me being involved in all the things that a much younger me was mostly always up to, back then.
Some of the “good old days” were, indeed, good … and others, well,
perhaps nostalgia perhaps not so good. And some, as life is most apt to do, were pretty awful, to tell the truth.
But the good thing about getting older is the pleasure of forgetting many of those terrible things, and sometimes – like now –
remembering the better ones. Those truly “good old days.” Perhaps I can add: “of yore,” although the casino may not be the most appropriate place for Shakespeare.
As we approach this year’s G2E, there’s always anticipation of what we’re likely to see, in gaming innovations,
casino operations, marketing, the business of gaming, and everything in between.
Perhaps reminiscences Undoubtedly, as is always the case, there will be a smattering of each, and then some.
I’m pretty sure most of us kind of “know” what to expect, especially those among us who have been down this rabbit hole before,

Over the past two-plus decades or so, manufacturers seem to be hell-bent on creating cabinets which are so horrendously uncomfortable to sit in and play that it’s directly related to attrition in time on device (TOD), as well as the lackluster performance of many gaming titles.
perhaps nostalgia These so-called “designs” may look pretty on the graphic-design screen, and even look pretty in the test labs, and in the showrooms,
So, what’s wrong with them? Plenty.
Most of all is the actual design. These cabinets have protruding “lips” – kind of like slant-tops – which force players to sit there very uncomfortably,
their legs wedged underneath where it’s hot, and gets hotter the longer the player sits there.
Furthermore the buttons on this “lip” are usually way too big, which makes them unresponsive, and they break down so often that it’s a nightmare trying to play these games.
often forced to lean forward putting added stress on their lumbar region,
and then forced to use these horrible buttons to try and get the game to work, and all the time having
their legs and feet stuck under this hell-hole of a hot place where the machine’s
electronics simply cook the player’s legs like an oven! To combat this the casinos are usually so freezing cold that no normal human being can stand being there for any length of time,
and this is forcing players to bring heavy coats into the casino even when it’s 110 degrees outside.
