BetPlus Selects Octavian

Octavian Global Technologies announced that it has signed a 10-year contract with BetPlus, the largest gaming concessionaire in Italy’s amusement-with-prizes machine market, for the deployment of the Octavian Symphony VE system to manage its AWP gaming operations across Italy.

Italy’s AWP market is strictly controlled by the Italian government’s AAMS (Autonomous Administration of State Monopolies) and its “Comma6” regulations. BetPlus will deploy the centralized Octavian Symphony VE video-lottery system to link gaming machines at multiple AWP venues across Italy and meet the latest Comma6B requirements. Initially, around 12,000 machines will be connected, but the highly scalable system offers virtually limitless scope to connect further sites and machines.

The Symphony VE system is the latest development of Octavian’s Symphony system, which is designed to enable rapid rollout and high-reliability management of wide-area gaming networks comprising tens of thousands of electronic gaming machines. In addition to monitoring, accounting and reporting functions to control gaming machine operations, the Symphony VE system offers significant scope for business development through player tracking and wide-area multiple progressive jackpots.
