Comtrade Gaming’s sCore Connect solution uses the Game to System (G2S) protocol to enable direct communication between Casino Management Systems and slot machines, positioned either on the casino floors or in distributed venues.

The protocol engine facilitates the integration of gaming machines to enable operators and vendors to focus more on delivering an exceptional player experience than running the technology.

What is the G2S protocol?

Developed by the Gaming Standards Association G2S is a protocol that connects slot machines to the host system(s). It enables direct connections as well as support for a wide palette of functionalities from the gaming machine itself without the need for any additional hardware (e.g. SMIB).

When your CMS is integrated with sCore Connect, your casino floor benefits from:

  • retaining the existing casino management system;
  • having access to modern G2S electronic gaming machines;
  • eliminating extra hardware costs (for example, SMIBs are no longer needed);
  • utilizing new functionalities (marketing and hospitality oriented advertising, remote management of gaming machines, etc.)
