End-to-end gaming supplier Scientific Games announced that it has received the first U.S. regulatory approvals for its “transformative” new cabinet and platform, TwinStar. The new platform is the first to deliver content from both of Scientific Games’ major legacy slot-manufacturing companies, Bally and WMS.
The new cabinet is the first to incorporate the company’s next-generation ArgOS operating system, providing enhanced game characteristics and play features, and will launch with new versions of some of the company’s most popular game titles, including Gold Fish Deluxe and Quick Shot Dwanwu.
The TwinStar cabinet, the ArgOS operating system and the two new game themes are approved in multiple jurisdictions, including California, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Wisconsin and New York. Additional approvals are anticipated in the coming weeks.
“The TwinStar cabinet is a major achievement in our integration strategy,” said Scientific Games President and CEO Gavin Isaacs, “involving the collaboration of our hardware, operating systems, game development, quality assurance and many other support teams around the globe. I am delighted that the initial production of our TwinStar units is sold out for this quarter. With Twinstar and Dualos now approved, we have two innovative dual-screen video cabinets for our customers around the world.”
The TwinStar for-sale cabinet features dual, vivid, 24-inch full HD displays and debuts the ArgOS state-of-the-art operating system that combines the best technology and content from two of the industry’s strongest slot brands—Bally and WMS—giving casino operators the ability to adapt it for their players.
Scientific Games also has developed exclusive new game titles for TwinStar to take advantage of the processing power of the new platform. Game themes will include player-favorite Bally and WMS brands such as Gold Fish Deluxe, Quick Hit, Quick Shot Dwanwu and Zeus, along with new games Steam Dream and Hot Blooded.
Featuring Scientific Games’ new CPU 4X, which offers 90 percent better processing power and unlocks a new level of game play and mathematical experiences, TwinStar builds on the award-winning iDeck button panel with a 40 percent larger area for player interaction.
