Walk across the table game area of a casino floor and you’ll see several different progressive jackpots. A table game like Ultimate Texas Hold’em will feature one progressive jackpot, while Three Card Poker will have another. Until now, these games have had separate links because the math for each game is different.
Scientific Games’ Infinilink progressive system allows casinos to link multiple table games to a single progressive jackpot. With more games on the same link, operators can offer bigger, faster jackpots.
Infinilink is expected to be a game-changer for table game progressives, which are becoming more popular. The system enables specialty table games with different math models to feed into one jackpot.
Games featuring the Infinilink progressive play the same as they always have—players make their progressive wager to qualify for normal and Infinilink payouts, and a portion of their progressive wager goes to the Infinilink meter. The hands and rounds selected for Infinilink payouts are completely random. If a player makes a progressive wager during one of these randomly selected rounds and hits the randomly selected hand, it wins both the regular and Infinilink payouts.
Infinilink works by combining the use of a random number generator with underlying hand odds to provide the same chance of winning an Infinilink payout. This allows operators to link any pay table and any game type, regardless of the math model used, to a common jackpot. Offered exclusively on the Game Manager 2 progressive platform, an Infinilink jackpot can be used in addition to game- and title-specific jackpots to provide a flexible, tailored offering that will resonate with table game players.
