AHG EXPO SHOWCASE IGT PROPELS GAMING FORWARD AT AHG18 The 2018 Australasian Hospitality Gaming Expo will showcase a new range of machines and games to propel the gaming industry forward through evolving and innovating game play. Last year, IGT ignited its local business in ANZ with an investment in people and technologies to develop new games and systems that offer variety and performance for more entertainment and more sustainable revenues. And the new line-up for the show continues this momentum. Nigel Turner, IGT’s head of marketing for ANZ commented: “Last year was all about sparking a new direction for our company and delivering our first set of games to deliver a boost to our customers’ revenues. At AHG we enter our next phase with a new cabinet – the CrystalCurve-i – and new games that are evolutions of old concepts or innovations that are new to market. Through our solid roadmap we will propel our customers’ business forward and deliver new game concepts for players.” IGT’s new CrystalCurve-i features a 42” Full HD portrait screen and a full suite of games including Wild Fury and Fortune Fury, which are now available in the market and initial performance figures have been very promising. Turner continued: “At AHG there will be additional games for our Curve-i: Star Stax, a single level SAP with bonus levels that are driven by the denomination plus a rapid hitting jackpot feature and bonus chase; and Fortune Gong Link which kicks off with three different base games and sees the evolution of our successful Prize Disk game play. For our CrystalDual-i cabinet we’ll be showcasing a number of new games including IGT’s multigame multi-denomination offering – called Multistar – which includes Multistar Dazzling Diamonds and the new Multistar All Stars. Both these themes showcase our new graphics and layouts with games that have a flexible mix of volatility and denomination. In gaming management systems, IGT Advantage Club continues to take remarkable leaps forward in performance and in additional innovative solutions enabling venues to better manage their patrons’ experience and customer service, drive loyalty and improve their bottom-line performance.”.
