TwinStar Wave XL


TwinStar Wave XL

In 2013, Bally Technologies launched the Pro Wave cabinet, a new platform that sent shock waves through the industry, changing the look of casino floors, and transforming the player experience forever.

The Pro Wave cabinet was the first to showcase a revolutionary 40-inch, curved, high-definition touch-screen display that addressed all of the challenges associated with taller, upright slot cabinets. It beautifully showcased all of the game graphics on a single large screen, while offering comfortable viewing angles and ergonomics, providing an immersive player experience.

Adding to its appeal and success, the Pro Wave also featured a game-controlled lighting package, cinematic surround-sound, and the award-winning iDeck. To this day, this extensively copied cabinet continues to be a player favorite on casino floors worldwide.

At G2E 2018, Scientific Games will launch the successor to the Pro Wave cabinet—the TwinStar Wave XL.

Like its predecessor, the TwinStar Wave XL will take the player experience to the next level, showcasing an even larger 49-inch, curved touch-screen display that still offers versatility and a comfortable player experience. Beyond being larger, the dynamic display will showcase an astounding 4K, ultra-high-definition display, generating the kind of stunning graphics only seen in high-end home theaters. Now, with the TwinStar Wave XL, players can enjoy that kind of high-end entertainment media on casino floors.

The TwinStar Wave XL also showcases an even larger iDeck and an even more advanced lighting and sound package.

Additionally, the TwinStar Wave XL offers operators even greater versatility than its predecessor, which only supported Bally content. Like all cabinets in the innovative TwinStar family, the TwinStar Wave XL supports multiple content streams seamlessly, showcasing game titles from powerhouse Bally, WMS and Shuffle Master development teams, giving operators one powerful machine with access to the most innovative and in-demand game titles.

The TwinStar Wave XL is launching with a lineup of proven, blockbuster titles such as Dragon Spin, Cash Wizard and the successor to the Duo Fu Duo Cai franchise, Jin Xi Bao Xi. All games will be presented with enhanced top boxes and in various arrangements, such as the impressive TwinStar Wave XL 360 configuration.
