IGT Extends Partnership With Olympic

Slot manufacturer International Game Technology announced that its partnership with Baltic States operator Olympic Entertainment Group will be extended with additional implementations of the IGT Cloud server-based technology at additional Olympic properties.

The IGT Cloud, which enables server-based gaming without the physical servers required in traditional systems, was successfully deployed at Olympic Casino Estonia. The technology will now be employed at the operator’s Olympic Jarve and Olympic Ulemiste properties, under an agreement signed at the Global Gaming Expo on October 2.

“We are pleased to extend our relationship with the IGT Cloud,” said Madis Jääger, CEO of Olympic Entertainment Group. “Their cloud-based environment has provided us with a versatile way to drive even more entertaining game experiences to our players. We believe that IGT systems are critical to success of our casino operations.”

According to Jääger, the most valuable aspects of the IGT Cloud technology is the ability to utilize in-depth analytics to make the best decisions for the gaming floor based upon user preference data, in addition to having direct access to IGT’s 400-plus title game theme library. The Cloud has also afforded Olympic with a way to differentiate the Cloud-connected casinos from other properties in the area, since the technology enables for multiple games to be loaded onto a single cabinet.
