SAS protocol will not be supported after December 31, 2009. As a result, the industry will migrate to G2S for connecting games to systems and S2S for connecting systems to systems. How will we live in a dual protocol world? What is the migration strategy for an existing casino? What do you need to know when developing a new casino?
