Scientific Games Corporation has launched its new Kascada slot cabinet, which the company says is the next generation of the groundbreaking TwinStar J43 premium cabinet.
Kascada, which will initially launch in North America, also is what the company calls its “first truly international cabinet,” available to gaming operators around the world. Built by an award-winning group of research & development team members located around the world, Kascada offers a modernized version of the J43, boasting an ultra-high-definition 4K graphics display on a 43-inch, innovative double curved monitor with a new lighting package.
Kascada builds upon the gaming cabinet innovations Scientific Games began with the introduction of the ALPHA Pro Wave, the first curved-screen portrait cabinet. That cabinet sent shockwaves through the industry, changed the look of casino floors and transformed the player experience.
“Kascada is part of the evolution of the gaming floor,” said Matt Wilson, executive vice president and Gaming Group chief executive. “Technology in consumer electronics is rapidly evolving. We’re creating truly immersive experiences to match what players have become accustomed to in entertainment experiences off the casino floor.
“In developing both cabinets and games, we’re leveraging international teams to tap into and meet consumer expectations around the globe. And, we’ve added top-tier executive talent with operator experience to our commercial team to ensure we keep the perspective of our operator-partners first and foremost.”
Melissa Price, senior vice president of global gaming operations, joined Scientific Games from Caesars Entertainment, where she spent 13 years overseeing enterprise gaming operations for the corporation’s more than 40 casino resorts worldwide. Her operator-first perspective will assist in the Kascada global launch.
