Overview: The Gaming Standards Association (GSA) facilitates the identification, definition, development, promotion, and implementation of open standards to enable innovation, education, and communication for the gaming industry. Originally formed in late 1996 as the Gaming Manufacturers Association (GAMMA), the GSA focuses on developing and implementing a series of electronic communication standards for casino gaming equipment. The gaming industry encompasses various types of equipment, such as slot machines, kiosks, and currency-counting machines, each requiring some form of communication. This communication may be between slot machines and its peripheral devices, including slot machines and slot accounting and or player tracking networks and casino management systems. As a result, a clear set of broad-based communication standards is necessary industry-wide to enable more efficient use of this technology. The GSA represents gaming manufacturers, suppliers, operators and regulators.
