IGT Places M-P Roulette in Switzerland

Slot manufacturer International Game Technology has completed an installation of its M-P Series game Roulette Evolution at Grand Casino Basel in Switzerland. The installation includes 28 player stations connected to an automated roulette wheel.

The Roulette Evolution product places digital cameras on fully automated, electro-mechanical roulette wheels, and links the video of the roulette games to slant-top player stations, each with a 23- inch wide-screen LCD monitor. Players can choose from several wheels and wager using the touchscreen display on the player station. A 53-inch, high-definition central display dominates the play area.

“Since opening our casino, the majority of our machines have always been from IGT,” said Marcel Wenger, casino vice director at Grand Casino Basel. “IGT’s games have proven to be consistent top performers and are always liked by our players. And when we chose to replace our old automated roulette units, we immediately trusted IGT and its Roulette Evolution game—and we are thrilled with this decision.”

“The results are great, the design is fantastic, and the machines have been accepted by our customers,” added Eugenio di Palma, the casino’s slot manager. “Players enjoy choosing their denominations and bets at will.”
