Spinning for Gold

With Bonus Spin, AGS is bringing excitement to table games that formerly was reserved for just the slot floor. This white-label progressive technology lets operators add a customizable, virtual prize wheel to any table game, and players get to spin the wheel when a predetermined hand or event occurs. Operators can customize the virtual Bonus Spin wheel to include a top progressive award, fixed cash, or an experience-based prize like a weekend getaway or VIP bottle service.

In the blackjack version, the Bonus Spin side bet pays off in two ways: If one of the player’s first two cards is an Ace, the bet pays even money. However, if dealt a blackjack, the player presses a button to spin the virtual wheel for a chance at various money denominations, including the top award the operator has set.

Bonus Spin will soon be offered on proprietary AGS table games as well, like Chase the Flush, in which players and dealers compete head-to-head using three hole cards and four community cards to create the longest possible flush; and Criss Cross Poker, in which players try to make a pair of sixes or better using five cards.

Part of the appeal of Bonus Spin is that unlike typical side-bet progressives, which pay off on very rare hands like a natural straight flush, the wheel spin for a chance at a progressive occurs on much-more-attainable hands like a pair or a blackjack. Thus, there is excitement across the table as frequent bonus spins occur.
