Slot and system manufacturer Bally Technologies announced the official launch of “Cash Spin,” a new video slot on the company’s V32 cabinet that features a proprietary technology called “gesture control.”
The technology, branded “U-Spin,” allows players to touch the image of the bonus wheel on the V32’s vertical monitor and physically spin the wheel. The wheel display responds to the force applied by the player for an authentic effect.
According to the company, Cash Spin is shaping up to be one of the most successful Bally slots ever. The company has orders in process for nearly 1,000 units at the game’s launch, and has already installed units in California, Florida, Louisiana, Missouri, Nevada and Oklahoma casinos. Cash Spin is also approved in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Manitoba, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, Nova Scotia, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico and Wisconsin.
“The rate at which we are installing Cash Spin is the fastest we’ve ever seen with any game,” said Bally COO Gavin Isaacs. “Watching the players’ reactions at the first installations of Cash Spin has been very rewarding for us. When they find out they can actually spin the wheel on the touch-screen, the excitement is contagious.”
Cash Spin has won three industry awards, including first place in the slot category for the Global Gaming Business Gaming & Technology Awards, presented at the Global Gaming Expo in November.
“We are gratified and delighted that Cash Spin was selected by independent judges for these important industry awards,” Isaacs said. “The number of orders we have for this game, combined with the three awards, highlights the significance of this game’s technological advancement in player control using our patent-pending U-Spin gesture-control technology.”
