Scientific Games Corp. has officially unveiled its new “Mural” cabinet, which the company calls “the most visually dramatic gaming cabinet in the company’s range of industry-leading products.”
The Mural cabinet features dual 55-inch, 4K-resolution curved monitors, creating an eye-catching attraction for casino floors. The new cabinet launch comes on the heels of the company’s introduction of Kascada, the next generation of its top-selling TwinStar J43 cabinet.
“Our mission is to create unparalleled player experiences,” said Matt Wilson, executive vice president and CEO, gaming, for Scientific Games. “The Mural cabinet is a new form factor for us. Its name is a nod to not just the size of the display, but to the beauty of the imagery you see in the game.
“The cabinet’s design required our teams to work collaboratively to get every element right. Our cabinet design has evolved into a much more holistic process where we’re taking insights from players, inputs from our partners and working across our teams to ensure nothing is left to chance. The Mural cabinet is the evolution of the gaming floor, and we could not be more excited to unveil it.”
The company’s award-winning engineering team, with member working across offices in Chicago, Las Vegas, Reno and the United Kingdom, led the cabinet’s design with coordination from game design, commercial teams, field service and support teams. It is the company’s first cabinet to be designed almost solely through virtual collaboration, with a select few engineers in the Las Vegas office building the first prototypes in person.
“The ability of our teams to build such a beautiful, massive cabinet in this new digital, work-from-home environment is a testament to their skill,” Wilson said.
The Mural cabinet also features an embedded wireless charger for mobile phones. Both the main monitor and the iDeck are touch screen-enabled. At the core of the cabinet is the next-generation Salem processor, providing fast game play, smooth animation and clear graphics.
The Mural is launching with popular game titles Willy Wonka: Dreamer of Dreams and 88 Fortunes: Emperor’s Coins. Each game is the latest entry in a long-successful game theme franchise for the supplier.
