Progressive Tables

At G2E 2018, AGS will showcase STAX, its groundbreaking new table-game progressive solution.

STAX offers five multi-level progressive jackpots, including a large and life-changing top award, any of which can be won with an optional side bet. A Must-Hit pool, which displays the Mystery Must-Hit Progressive Declared Value to players, adds anticipation and excitement as the jackpot grows.

The STAX dynamic, double-sided display features light-up bet sensors and a table-style dealer interface for prominent viewing by the player and ease of integration into the casino pit.

This uniquely customizable innovation in table-game progressive solutions links up to five progressive pools across the game floor, setting it apart from other table progressives which typically only offer three progressive pools. It also features a reserve concept for each pool, thus enabling built-up reserves to contribute to reseed values.

Adding up to five levels enables a single game theme to be both life-changing and, at the same time, deliver smaller, more frequent jackpot awards to keep players in their seats. The high-level jackpots can reach more than $100,000, while the lower-level pools offer higher-frequency hits on the same table. Since all five pools are progressive pays, player excitement and engagement are higher than under a fixed paytable solution.

STAX also offers a significantly unique concept to table-game progressive systems—the ability to incorporate a Mystery Must-Hit pool—driving player excitement and anticipation.

Other features include customizable automated tiered contribution rates as meter values increase, thus building up healthy reserves. STAX also includes a web-based reporting and configuration platform, enabling detailed data accessibility across a casino enterprise.

Because players are required to wager an additional side bet to win the progressive, they will invest more in the game—driving casino revenue. And STAX creates tremendous excitement, generating an “if you don’t play, you can’t win” mentality and building dramatic player anticipation as the jackpots increase and the “Must-Hit” promises potentially large rewards.
