Naomi Barton, Clarion Gaming’s portfolio director, said: “We have responded to feedback from the industry, and created a dedicated feature area for visitors to learn more about the latest innovations in a vertical that’s undergoing significant change. Traditional slots, whether land-based or online, have failed to connect with millennials or Gen-Z. These fundamental shortcomings are being addressed by games creators with innovation delivering multi-player functionality, as well as elements of social and skill-based features to games, meaning that a whole new sub-category of slots are relevant to the industry with the capabilities to help accelerate business growth and in the process expand the parameters of iGaming.”

Barton added: “We’ll be exhibiting how various slots streamers operate through viewing their dedicated Twitch broadcast channels, and the iGB Live! show floor will include a dedicated space for networking. Agile and dynamic in-person events such as iGB Live! are all about identifying and facilitating growth opportunities, and the iGB SLOTS Arena has been created to help visitors connect with iGaming slots businesses and convert networking to player traffic and player acquisition. It’s a powerful example of the commitment to innovation that underpins the iGB Live! experience.”
