FOLLOWING PROTOCOL ComTrade’s Ales Gornjec tells us inter-


operability is the key to the gaming floor of the future, via S2S


Editor’s letter S


ince the last time we, erm, ‘spoke’, Casino International has become the official Europe-based publication for the Gaming Standards Association, wich we’re all rather pleased about. It means we’ll be a platform for them to help educate the industry about their ongoing work, and that is something we are very, very pleased to be able to do. The highlights of this issue for me are the piece on


Brintons, a carpet company that’s doing rather well in the gaming industry [p38], the return of Nick Hawkins on 12, Sharon Harris, staying on top of the ever-chang- ing US gaming industry on 10, and Barnaby Page’s look at SBG on 32. Wow, that’s a lot of high- lights…
