was the 3rd day for the most high profile and successful
gaming expo in Australia - the Australasian Gaming
Expo, which is being hosted by the Sydney Convention
Centre at Darling Harbour. It's gaming, gambling,
technology, sales...even creative arts elements and
It's a key time for the gaming industry in Australia
with all the regulation elements, responsible gambling
initiatives and such, and most of the big boys of
the industry were on hand to show off their wares,
with some exhibitors demonstrating significant creative
flair to help showoff their latest and greatest wares.
friends at Human Statue Bodyart were back again and
they had a couple of body models made up in bodypaint
(Anastasia as a butterfly and Victoria as a panda)
- complete with wings and sparkles, for leading gaming
brand Paltronics and its latest game 'Jungle Madness'.
expo centre itself is huge - 15,000 square metres
(about the size of an Aussie Rules football oval)
and this provided more than ample opportunity for
over 750 slot games on display.
Australasian Gaming Expo is by far the largest event
of its type in Australia and one of the worlds
learned through the grapevine that a trip for 2 to
Las Vegas will be won by a lucky visitor on each of
the 3 days of the Expo, and this is compliments of
the Gaming Technologies Association which owns the
event. It's understood the winner of the trip will
be named later this afternoon.
tipped over 20,000 people have walked through the
games expo thus far, with those in the business being
the majority, and no doubt a few punters, checked
through the gates (but note that the games on display
do not accept coins or notes).
done to everyone associated with the success of the
expo and we'll see you there again next year.
