Is Bigger Better?

The trend toward the giant slot machines makes the cabinets that hold those games much more important. In the latest Eilers-Fantini Cabinet Performance Report, one of the most volatile sectors was the Jumbo sector. Since they are so big, Jumbo cabinets take up a lot of space, and if they don’t perform they are removed rather quickly.

The report indicates that Aristocrat’s Behemoth cabinets have dropped in number while IGT’s Megatower has increased numbers and win to take the top position. And as the report indicates, only the strong survive in this category.
