Leading slot manufacturer International Game Technology announced that it will launch the CrystalDual-i cabinet for Australia and New Zealand at this week’s 2015 Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE), at Stand 130. AGE takes place tomorrow through Thursday at the Sydney Exhibition Centre in Australia.
The CrystalDual-i cabinet offers players a new interface and includes state-of-the art integrated audio with lighting celebrations. The cabinet draws from the celebrated design of its sister cabinet, the CrystalDual cabinet, which has been met with enthusiasm from players and operators alike.
Launching with nine games, including one link and four player-selectable multi-denomination titles, the CrystalDual-i cabinet features a dynamic player panel with advanced ergonomics for increased player comfort and a charging port for mobile devices. Easily configured for a casino, club or hotel environment, the CrystalDual-i cabinet offers operators easy serviceability and increased uptime.
“The new IGT brings a renewed focus and dedication to our customers in Australia and New Zealand,” said Walter Bugno, IGT’s CEO-International. “The launch of the CrystalDual-i cabinet addresses customer requests to bring an exciting new machine with great design, enhanced ergonomics and multi-game functionality to the region.
“We’re excited to leverage our increased global strength to deliver more innovation, service and solutions designed to increase our loyal customers’ profitability than ever before.”
In addition to the premiere of the CrystalDual-i cabinet, IGT will demonstrate a suite of more than 40 games across two platforms. Show attendees can experience the new Multistar Champion Series Gold game, in addition to the new 10-game package, Mightystar 2 featuring IGT legends Siberian Storm and Cooee Country games. Eastern Treasures 2 and Mighty Dragon 2 games round out the new game offerings. IGT also will feature new support for the existing blue-chip Neo-N+ cabinet with the release of multi-game packages designed to maximize gaming investment and floor space.
The company also will demonstrate the latest version of IGT Advantage Club system, with new loyalty management applications. The patron messaging and marketing solution, Service Window, will be shown with the revamped Xtra Credit application, which reduces reward point liability for venues while providing players with different options for using loyalty points.
