Gaming Standards Association Welcomes The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and Isle of Capri Casinos Inc. as Its Newest Members

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  The Gaming Standards Association, whose open standards are the driving force behind the new generation of devices and systems, is proud to welcome its newest operator members, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc.

The Cosmopolitan is Las Vegas' newest resort destination and is slated to open December 15; Isle of Capri Casinos operates 14 casinos in six states. Both operators have joined GSA as gold members.

"We are excited to welcome both The Cosmopolitan and Isle of Capri Casinos to GSA, and I feel without a doubt that all parties will benefit from this relationship," said GSA President Peter DeRaedt. "Our open standards mean that our operator members will benefit from having more vendor choices made available to them, allowing operators to mix and match solutions from multiple vendors. That in turn means that our vendors will have access to greater markets that are no longer controlled by just one manufacturer."

Operators who join GSA will also benefit from:

  • GSA certified EGM's that offer plug and play on the casino floor
  • GSA certified products that enable interoperability across vendors
  • A true open standard that offers sustainability and transparency
  • Easy exchange of information across platforms
  • Quicker response rate to any changes in the existing system
  • Economic savings by installing one protocol, instead of dozens
