IGT will showcase a compelling range of gaming solutions designed specifically for Asia-based casinos at G2E Asia this year. Under the theme “IGNITE – a new direction”, IGT’s product portfolio will be anchored by approved, localized content, new versatile hardware, mobile solutions for land-based casinos and the company’s market-leading systems innovations.

A must-see product on IGT’s stand at G2E Asia will be the Hyper Hits link on the CrystalDual cabinet. Approved for distribution in Macau, Hyper Hits is a linked progressive with an engaging ball mechanic that awards the title’s jackpots and bonus prizes. IGT will showcase the “Lotus Princess” and “The Golden Bow” Hyper Hits base games at the show.

IGT will also highlight market-ready games from its Prize Disk family of linked  games. Prize Disk games offer players an anticipation-heightening scrolling prize disk above the reels that awards free games, bonuses and jackpots. Macau-approved Prize Disk games “Elephant King” and “Wolf Ridge” will be joined on IGT’s stand by the forthcoming “Tiger Fortune” game.

IGT’s CrystalCurve cabinet and content will make their G2E Asia debut in 2018. Featuring a 43-inch, curved, ultra-HD, 4K display, the CrystalCurve cabinet is backed by a strong portfolio of core and premium games. The company will highlight the vibrant multi-level progressive title Fortune Gong with base game titles “Dragon Dynasty” and “Guardians Treasure”. It will also showcase standout core games from The Fury family, such as “Golden Fury” and “Fortune Fury” – both featuring math models designed for regional player preferences,

G2E Asia will also mark the Asiadebut for the company’s CrystalDual 27 cabinet. Representing the evolution of the Crystal hardware series, the modern cabinet features dual, high-definition, 27- inch displays, the option for bank-wide synchronized lighting, a mobile device charging port and more. The cabinet will be demonstrated with titles such as “Imperial Princess” and accommodates many IGT games developed on the company’s Ascent platform.

Highlighting IGT’s position as a leading casino management systems (CMS) provider in Asia, IGT will create a live casino experience in a custom-built theater within its stand – taking customers through realworld patron management scenarios.

IGT representatives will present the many capabilities of the IGT Advantage CMS, along with compatible modular components such as bonusing apps, Service Window and the Beverage on Demand solution. IGT will also show the leading capabilities of its award-winning Cardless Connect and PlaySpot mobile solutions.

Skill-based games by Chill Gaming and IGT’s new landscape-oriented Dynasty Electronic Table Game (ETG) terminal that accommodates both live and RNG content will also be among the many regionally relevant innovations that G2E Asia attendees can enjoy within IGT’s stand.
