Scientific Games Wins ilani Contract

Scientific Games Corporation announced a comprehensive new contract to provide ilani, Washington state’s newest casino, with a full suite of technology innovations, including casino management system solutions, slot platforms, game content, table products and the SG Universe mobile suite.

After a competitive bidding process, ilani, developed by Salishan-Mohegan LLC in collaboration with the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, chose Scientific Games as its principal casino technology partner for the April opening of the new casino resort located in southwest Washington, just north of Portland, Oregon, directly off Interstate 5.

The order includes 1,427 slot and table games—making up 57 percent of the floor—as well as system and mobile solutions.

The collection of games will consist of Scientific Games’ newest and most innovative slot product lines, including the TwinStar family and the Alpha 2 Pro Series line of cabinets that will host the most popular titles from Scientific Games’ dominant gaming brands—Bally, Shuffle Master and WMS—as well as those from a variety of game manufacturers. Ilani will open with some of Scientific Games’ most beloved slot titles like Quick Hit, Copper Dropper and Li’l Red, and premium offerings such as 88 Fortunes, Michael Jackson Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’, Titanic and Friends.

From its Shuffle Master table products suite, Scientific Games will provide Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em and Three Card Poker proprietary poker games, along with an extensive baccarat layout featuring 12 tables with the Dragon Bonus baccarat side bet. The company will also provide its Fortune Pai Gow and Kings Bounty Blackjack side bets.

“We are focused on providing our guests with a world-class casino gaming experience,” said ilani President and General Manager Kara Fox-LaRose. “That is why, after years of a trusted partnership with our partner, Mohegan Sun, we chose to invest in Scientific Games solutions for ilani.”
