Las Vegas and Windsor, Ontario – June 9, 2015 – At the Canadian Gaming Summit 2015 from June 16-18 at Caesars Windsor, Scientific Games will present a varied lineup of products to the Canadian gaming market that will address casino operators’ diverse needs. Show attendees will have the opportunity to witness the strategic benefits of the combination of Scientific Games’ Bally, Shuffle Master and WMS brands.
Robert J. Parente, Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer for the Company’s Gaming Division, said, “We are excited to present to the Canadian gaming market a tremendous breadth of customer-favored gaming devices, systems and related services, in a way that no other company can. Scientific Games is uniquely positioned to offer new value to Canadian casino operators as we seek to become their partner of choice and a one-stop shop for their gaming product and services solutions.”
Bally products on display at CGS 2015 will include the FRIENDS™ video slot that reunites players with the beloved characters from Warner Bros. Television’s worldwide hit comedy that TV Guide Magazine named one of the 50 greatest shows of all time.
The FRIENDS theme is presented on the Pro Theatre cabinet, a new configuration built on the award-winning Pro Wave and topped by a massive 1080p 55-inch display. With a U-Spin wheel, clips of the show’s many hilarious moments and a huge progressive jackpot, players can experience the laughs and loves in a whole new way. The game is also available as a near-area progressive.
The A&E® DUCK DYNASTY™ branded video slot game by Bally in conjunction with G2 Game Design, also on the Pro Theatre, will have players hunting for more with a wheel feature jam-packed with six different bonuses inspired by the most-watched reality cable TV show in history.
Also on display will be Triple Cash Wheel featuring Quick Hit, a new title with the proven power of Quick Hit showcased on the Pro Wave with Digital Wheel, a striking new cabinet with a full 1080p high-definition wheel designed to attract attention on any casino floor.
The Bally Systems area will be highlighted by its award-winning Elite Bonusing Suite. The Elite Bonusing Suite, when combined with iVIEW Display Manger, enables play-centric bonusing events that add dramatic new levels of excitement and anticipation to the slot-play experience. Scientific Games will also demonstrate SDS,CMP, Business Intelligence (BI), Promotional Kiosk and its industry-leading responsible gaming measures.
The Shuffle Master brand will display a number of cutting-edge products including Tablemaster Fusion, which transports the fast-paced excitement of live table gaming to a fully electronic platform. Shuffle Master brand products will also feature the one2six single- and multi-deck continuous shuffler and Blazing 7s progressive, an optional blackjack progressive bet that brings the excitement of the popular Blazing 7s slot brand to the table games pit by awarding wins based on how many sevens players receive in their hands.
Among the portfolio of WMS products at CGS 2015 is the Blade s32 cabinet, a player-focused hybrid slant cabinet. The Blade s32 cabinet features two 32-inch high-definition displays that deliver a premium, high-impact “wow” to any slot floor and provide superior player readability. The Dragons Over Nanjing and Hot Hot 8 themes will be on display.
Scientific Games will also demonstrate a number of new premium participation titles in the WMS brand, including the MONOPOLY Big Money Reel and ELVIS™ themes. The MONOPOLY Big Money Reel theme features a 42-inch curved LCD top box and 1080p high-definition screens that bring MONOPOLY to life like never before. The ELVIS theme brings together three unique player-selected interfaces representing three different eras of the career of the KING OF ROCK N’ ROLL™. Three scattered BONUS symbols trigger the wheel bonus for a spin of the top wheel. Watch the glitz and glam spin around as either a credit prize or one of three local-area progressives is awarded: Vegas ELVIS, Hollywood ELVIS or Memphis ELVIS with Grand, Major or Minor progressives respectively.
Another WMS highlight will be the first multigame LAP from the WMS brand: Life of Luxury progressive. The Life of Luxury progressive theme brings back a classic WMS game in multi-game format with five themes that feature a combination of classic, current, and new WMS content.
“We are Stronger Together through the combination of our time-tested brands and comprehensive and differentiated product portfolios that are created and supported by an extremely talented global team,” said Parente. “Scientific Games will demonstrate at CGS 2015 the ability to leverage proven product brands and cutting-edge technology solutions that benefit customers and help them grow their businesses.”
