Window to the World

Product: Viridian WS cabinet
Manufacturer: Aristocrat Technologies, Inc.

When Aristocrat first introduced its award-winning Viridian cabinet, it became an instant industry-wide sensation. Now Aristocrat is introducing the Viridian WS widescreen cabinet.

Powered by Aristocrat’s GEN7 platform, the Viridian WS provides players with a gaming entertainment experience with its improved ergonomics, 13-button panel support, new LCD button technology, easier accessibility and larger 22-inch LCD screens.

Viridian WS’ new features begin with its high-resolution monitor. Measuring 22 inches, the wide-screen monitor is housed in a sleek, slim-line cabinet. The monitor’s size gives players an expanded game view and a more engrossing game experience.

Next, a 13-button panel gives the player more bet options. The button panel is low-profile for additional player comfort, and the LCD buttons are programmable for added player attraction and excitement. A new card insertion location makes it easier for players to insert their cards, which results in improved player tracking data for the casino.

The speakers have been relocated, giving the cabinet a new and improved look, and players will also enjoy upgraded speaker quality. A reduced belly area gives the player more room to relax and enjoy the game, and improved ambient lighting is intended to create a more welcoming environment.

Viridian WS is available in Casino or Chop Top style, and like the original Viridian, the Viridian WS is a “green” product, meaning it is built with some recycled materials, uses less energy during its lifespan and is recyclable after its lifespan has run its course.

Viridian WS is available with the new game “Fire Light” (pictured) and new Native GEN 7 titles “More Chili” and “More Hearts.” Other games available for Viridian WS include “Buffalo,” “Bonanza Bros,” “Bone-Bonus,” “Crusader’s Heart,” “Desert Magic,” “Golden Axe,” “Fortune Princess,” “Harlequin Hears,” “In the Gold,” “Kickin’ Ass,” “Lucky 88,” “Lucky Leopard,” “Mammoth Thunder,” “Party in Rio,” “Timber Jack,” “2 Can” and “Wild Splash.”
