Radical Blue Gaming, a developer of software applications for the Gaming Standards Association’s protocols, is offering free copies of its tools to casinos and other interested parties that want to better understand the potential of the Game to System, or G2S protocol.
This offer includes student versions of Radical Blue’s G2S host simulator (RGS), EGM simulator (RST), and Protocol Analyzer (RPA)-all designed to help users learn 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 Radical Blue website (www.radblue.com) or contact Russ Ristine ([email protected]). Product demonstrations for RPA and RST can be found at www.radblue.com/demos/demos.htm.
“We are very excited that RadBlue is offering free student versions of these tool kits,” said GSA President Peter DeRaedt. “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 tool kits, developers and other users can become more familiar with G2S and the incredible potential it holds.”
“With nearly 2,000 copies of our products in use by developers, casinos and test labs, RadBlue’s tools have become the reference implementation for GSA’s protocols,” added RadBlue Vice President Russ Ristine. “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 firsthand.”
GSA’s G2S protocol was named “Best Productivity-Enhancement Technology” last year by Global Gaming Business magazine.
