Leading slot manufacturer International Game Technology announced that the company’s sbX server-based slot system has been selected by the Grand Ho Tram Strip luxury beach resort in Vietnam. The deal marks the first time that a casino in Asia will implement a floor-wide game-to-system (G2S) floor, done in conjunction with IGT’s Advantage casino management solution.
Along with the inclusion of sbX, which creates a path for an open-system architecture, the casino will take advantage of IGT Media Manager and the IGT Universal Game Adaptor, or UGA, allowing Service Window technology across slots on the gaming floor, including other manufacturers’ games.
“The expansion into Vietnam is a great step forward in the growing Asia market,” said Eric Tom, IGT’s executive vice president of global sales. “IGT’s ability to provide properties such as the Grand Ho Tram Strip with a casino floor that is based upon open gaming standards allows for flexibility and forward-thinking innovation in their operations. Having the ability to provide a better player experience on the floor with personal interaction at the Service Window is a valuable way for the property to differentiate itself from its competitors.”
The Grand Ho Tram Strip will utilize products from across the Advantage product suite, including Table Manager as well as the newly released IGT Rebates and Commission module, developed especially for the junket market in Asia.
