Table game supplier TCSJohnHuxley announced the completion of North America’s first “electronic gaming arena,” at Loto Quebec’s Casino du Lac Leamy. “The Zone,” as the auditorium-style area is called, uses Novomatic’s Novo Unity II game platform and terminals supplied by TCSJohnHuxley.
The 40 terminals are laid out in a formation facing a large stage, where live hosts drive a selection of games. Huge screens and dramatic lighting complete the picture.
After an extensive search of the marketplace including a customer and employee focus group to evaluate the terminals and platform being considered, Loto Quebec selected TCSJohnHuxley to supply the Novomatic Novo Unity II Terminals and Game Platform. Over the course of 18 months the teams worked together on new game ideas, development and the necessary approvals. The initial order consisted of 40 Novo Unity II Terminals, Auto Wheels, Saturn Roulette Wheels and Game Servers with a combination of Live/Auto Roulette, Live Baccarat, Live Black Jack and a suite of NOVO slot games.
In a separate release, TCSJohnHuxley announced that the company was chosen to provide gaming equipment to Vietnamese casino project Grand Ho Tram Strip, which opened in July.
TCSJohnHuxley supplied 90 tables, mainly baccarat, with a small amount of roulette, blackjack, sic bo and stud poker tables, along with more than 70 Omni Baccarat displays, a selection of Saturn Roulette Wheels, Chipper Champ 2 chip sorting machines and Supernova Progressive Table systems, along with all the table accessories and chairs.
