Slot manufacturer WMS Gaming announced that its “Adaptive Gaming” system of video slot games linked through a wide-area network has passed 1 million unique player log-ins.
Adaptive Gaming slots such as the Star Trek series allow players to advance through various levels and “episodes”-completely different games-by achieving certain bonus events. In the Star Trek series, they are called earning “medals” from “Star Fleet.”
The unique aspect of the games is that they are all linked to a wide-area server that permits a player to pick up a game where he left off, at any other machine on the network, regardless of the location. A ticket prints out with a log-in code, and the player can resume his game and not lose anything earned so far.
In another Adaptive Gaming slot, Reel ‘Em In Compete To Win, player scores in a competitive fishing contest are logged and can be accessed with the log-in code.
According to WMS, each of the two games has generated an average of approximately 2,000 new, unique player log-ins per day.
This summer, the manufacturer will introduce a new Adaptive Gaming title, The Lord of the Rings.
