Fitch Gaming Groups' Takeaways from the 2015 G2E In Las Vegas

CHICAGO--()--Fitch Ratings' Gaming team attended the 2015 Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas the week of Sept. 28th and left feeling encouraged by the new products and technologies gaming suppliers displayed. Fitch feels the erosion of International Game Technologies (IGT) and Scientific Games' (SGMS) premium slot market share should start to stabilize, that skill-based slots will not have a material impact on land-based gaming in the near- and medium-term, and came away impressed following PENN's Tropicana Las Vegas tour.

In '2015 Global Gaming Expo Takeaways' Fitch discusses key takeaways from Fitch's meetings with regional and Macau management teams and other constituents; various conference panels, and property tours.
