Empire Arena


Empire Arena

Everi enhanced and expanded its already-proven stand-alone Empire 5527 cabinet to create Empire Arena, a fully featured and flexible banked product with multiple configurations, starting with three units up to eight units.

The product consumes up to 20 percent less floor space in a six-unit carousel configuration versus a conventional four-unit carousel, due to the space-efficient design of the nucleus of Empire Arena. Further, many competitors’ video wall products are limited to a four-in-line configuration for a wall placement; however, Empire Arena can be configured for placement anywhere on the floor.

In addition to its banking flexibility, Empire Arena is powered by Everi’s Nitro media system, which enables operators to offer their patrons a fully immersive entertainment experience across the bank. This experience will be on full display at G2E with The Vault, the new follow-on series to the industry-topping launch theme Shark Week. Players will be wowed by The Vault’s three unique base games that feature a touch-capable 27-inch, landscape-oriented lower LCD screen and a 55-inch portrait-format, non-touch upper screen showcasing multiple bonus features.

One of the most innovative elements of this particular theme on Empire Arena is the heart-pounding bank-wide bonus feature Diamond Rush. The attention-grabbing alert creates an incredible amount of anticipation for players, prompting them to prepare for a new adrenaline-pumping rate of play while also attracting attention to the bank from across the floor. The bonus encourages players to steal prize-awarding diamonds from other players on the bank, creating a sense of competition and community-style play that other banked products simply do not deliver.

This hardware innovation continues to perform well in the field since its first deployment in February 2019, ranking highly among industry reports. In fact, Empire 5527 has been the highest-ranking cabinet in the large-top-box segment for the last several months per Eilers & Krejcik Cabinet Performance Report.
