Integrated gaming supplier Scientific Games Corporation announced two groundbreaking developments recently.
The company revealed that its next-generation AEGIS gaming system installation has been completed, and that the system is now powering Lotería Electrónica de Puerto Rico (Lotería Electrónica) after a successful systems conversion in November.
The technology conversion took place in just four months as part of the company’s new, eight-year systems contract, which began July 1. The contract was awarded by the Lotería Electrónica following a competitive procurement process, and includes sales and marketing services. Along with the new, advanced systems technology in Puerto Rico, Scientific Games also launched the lottery industry’s first single ticket accounting program for instant games in the U.S. as well as a new retail keno game.
To support Lotería Electrónica’s continued revenue growth, Scientific Games launched its global market-leading Cooperative Services Program (CSP) for instant game management. Integrating game portfolio planning, analytics, inside sales, packaging, warehousing and retail distribution, CSP is used by more than 20 lotteries globally, including nine of the top 15 lotteries in the world for instant game per capita sales, according to La Fleur’s Almanac.
The company also announced the launch of its new TwinStar J43 curved, portrait-style slot platform. The cabinet debuted in locations on the Las Vegas Strip and will be rolled out globally over the coming months.
The TwinStar J43 is currently approved in multiple jurisdictions across North America and will launch internationally during the 2017 calendar year.
The slot cabinet, the second in Scientific Games’ TwinStar family, delivers a portrait monitor presentation with a 43-inch J-style curved 4K monitor, sleek new styling, and an eye-catching lighting package with animated attraction sequences. The larger iDeck touch-screen button deck provides enhanced player interaction, and the multi-channel custom sound package with a 5.25-inch subwoofer delivers extraordinary surround sound, engrossing the player in the game. The TwinStar J43 supports game content from Bally, Shuffle Master and WMS.
The new cabinet launched with the Asian-themed game title Dancing Drums, a follow-on title to Scientific Games’ high-performing 88 Fortunes. Dancing Drums delivers the player-favorite pick-em Fu Fly Feature, the popular Fu Babies four-level near-area progressive jackpot, and a free games bonus with an re-trigger feature—all featuring dazzling Asian imagery evoking luck and fortune.
Scientific Games is designing a portfolio of TwinStar J43 game titles planned to roll out during 2017.
