2019 LVGA Annual Convention
The LVGA Annual Convention was another huge success this year. Attendance remained at an all time high. Guest speakers included our state's Lieutenant Governor "Billy" Nungesser, Attorney General Jeff Landry, and Chairman Ronnie Jones of the LA. Gaming Control Board. Additionally, we were able to hear from two of our industry leaders who have announced their candidacies for the State House of Representatives. Donovan Fremin will be seeking election for House District 55 and Jonathan Goudeau for House District 31. It was uplifting to hear their remarks and their passion for public service.
February 19 - 20, 2019
The State has decided on a new Central System for video poker, and it will be installed as early as the second half of 2019. Operators will have remote access to run a host of revenue reports by game type or theme, and the ability to set automatic alerts to your email or phone for device malfunctions and so much more!

LA. State Police provided updates on the Central System, combined with a presentation of the new technology by IGT. Attendees were also able to take advantage of a special panel discussion, which covered various video poker industry issues. The traditional VIP Reception overlooking the beautiful Mississippi River was standing room only as food and libations flowed, and attendees were able to meet and visit with friends and colleagues from across the industry and throughout the country, setting the pace for the Trade Show to follow.
While we maintained a consistent level of both sponsors and exhibitors, the show floor was packed. There were door prizes aplenty and many registrants left with special gifts. Our convention continues to be a popular event for the video poker industry and LVGA continues to provide the latest in innovation, technology, regluations, procedures and services affecting the industry. If you attended this year, we hope you enjoyed yourself and took away something productive and valuable for your organization. In the event you were not able to attend, there is always next year. We will be certain to bring you the latest and most up to date information and technology available.
