Ainsworth Game Technology recently announced that its hotly anticipated new A-STAR Raptor cabinet, first shown at the Global Gaming Expo in October, is built, approved in several North American markets, and ready for install by the end of this year.
The Raptor cabinet, a highlight of the company’s G2E exhibit, features a unique cylindrical display for player tracking, along with a cylindrical above-monitor speaker for enhanced player sound experience. The cabinet features a 49-inch J-curve monitor with a 27-inch topper, alongside full high-definition graphics above an 18.5-inch touchscreen button deck with twin smash buttons.
The new cabinet will debut with the games San Bao Pandas and San Bao Dragons. Featuring a popular pot-filler mechanic in the form of growing pandas and hatching dragons, these games have already been released to massive player acceptance in Class II and historical horse racing markets.
Further enhanced by an attractive new LED lighting package and premium surround sound, several new game families will be released on the Raptor in early 2024. These offerings include several games showcased at G2E, including Oriental Gongs and Jackpot Kingdom, a pair of Australian-designed brands offering innovative twists on Hold and Respin play mechanics.
