France Approves Atronic WAP

Courses et Jeux, the gaming regulatory board of France, has approved slot and system supplier Atronic Group as its supplier for a wide-area progressive system, to be operated in Monaco by its Atronic Systems division.

Atronic, a subsidiary of Rhode Island-based GTECH Corporation, will link approximately 400 slot machines at 100 venues to the progressive network by June. The multi-site jackpot, to be called “Superjack,” will be open to all casino operators in the nation.

Atronic partnered with casino operators Groupe Lucien Barrière, Groupe Tranchant and JOAGROUPE to test the new wide-area system in three casinos over a nine-month period.
