International Game Technology Plc – also known as IGT – is showcasing at this year’s edition of the casino industry trade show and conference Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia, a new range of gaming equipment solutions designed specifically for casino operators in Asia. IGT’s product portfolio for the show – under the theme “IGNITE” – is anchored in approved, localised content, new and versatile hardware, mobile solutions for land-based casinos and the company’s market-leading innovations in systems.
A must-see product at the trade show is the Hyper Hits link (pictured, right) on the CrystalDual cabinet. Approved for distribution in Macau, Hyper Hits is a linked progressive with an engaging ball-based mechanism that awards jackpots and bonus prizes. The link is launching with two base games – “Lotus Princess” and “The Golden Bow”.
IGT will also launch Macau-approved games from its “Prize Disk” family of linked games (main picture). Prize Disk games offer players prizes that are highlighted in icons scrolling right to left above the reels, and that include free games, bonuses and jackpots. The platform will launch with two games, “Elephant King” and “Wolf Ridge”, with a third, “Tiger Fortune”, also on display.
Making their G2E Asia debut will be IGT’s CrystalCurve cabinet and respective content. 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 is highlighting at the show its vibrant multi-level progressive title “Fortune Gong” with base game titles “Dragon Dynasty” and “Phoenix Rising”. IGT will also showcase standout core games from the “Fury” family, such as “Golden Fury” and “Fortune Fury” (pictured, down). Both feature maths models designed to appeal to players in the Asia-Pacific region.
G2E Asia will also mark the Asia debut for the company’s CrystalDual 27 cabinet. Representing an evolution of the CrystalDual series, the refreshed cabinet features dual, high-definition, 27-inch displays, a mobile device charging port, and more. The cabinet will be demonstrated with titles such as “Imperial Prince” and “Imperial Princess”.
Highlighting the company’s position as the leading casino management systems (CMS) provider in Asia, IGT will create a live-casino experience at G2E Asia, in a custom-built theatre within its stand, taking customers through real-world scenarios for managing their patrons. IGT representatives will present the many capabilities of the IGT Advantage system, 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.
G2E Asia 2018 is taking place from May 15 to 17 at the Venetian Macao Resort Hotel. IGT is at booth 801.

"The casinos have to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The decision [to suspend casino operations] is up to the government. As of now, we don’t have any plan to change the existing regulations"
