Gaming Support USA, the Las Vegas-based subsidiary of the Netherlands-based system company, announced that it has been granted certification from Gaming Laboratories International for its BaseSys Navigator jackpot controller. BaseSys Navigator enables banks of slots to offer either mystery jackpots or progressive jackpots.
Widely installed in casinos throughout Europe, Asia and South America, the system enables operators to remotely manage jackpots, update jackpot settings, emphasize jackpot values and trigger special effects, all from a networked PC. It works with slot machines of any manufacturer.
The GLI certification, the product’s first for the U.S. market, covers mystery and progressive configurations for the controller in California, Delaware and Rhode Island.
“Gaming Support is proud to have cleared this first, very important hurdle,” said Don Baugh, CEO of Gaming Support USA. “For the past several years, the American controller market has been far too restricted, with only one or two vendors supplying product. This absence of competition has been at the direct expense of casino operators, who have been forced to choose from an unacceptably narrow range of offerings. We look forward to providing American operators with a worthy alternative, and are excited by the ongoing proliferation of this new, very exciting technology.”
