IGT Installs Slot Machine Server-Based System at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

 

Gambling equipment manufacturer IGT (International Game Technology) announced on June 10th, 2010, Thursday, that they have finalized a deal to provide a server-based gambling system to Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, which will connect the slot machines at the Strip facility expected to formally open in December 2010. No terms of the deal were publicly released.

The gaming system, which could link games from multiple slot machine organizations to a main server, allows for better gaming operation. IGT has installed a similar system at Aria, which links about fifty percent of the facility's slot machines and also recently installed the server-based system at the Monte Carlo casino. The group said that its slot machines would be available in most of Cosmopolitan's gaming floor.

The $3.9 billion dollars, 2,995 room Cosmopolitan features one hundred thousand square foot casino. A lot of slot machine manufacturers have yet to officially agree on ways to link slot machines to server-based gaming systems. IGT announced earlier this month that they are planning for a field trial at The Orleans, where a server-based system of the group will link with the system of fellow slot machine manufacturer.

IGT, which is based in Reno, Nevada, has slowly been launching its server-based gaming system into different gaming markets in the past year. Just last month, the group announced an agreement to install the system at a casino facility in France. The group has installed its system at Barona Resort (San Diego, California), Ameristar St. Charles (Missouri), Colusa Casino (Northern California), MGM Grand Detroit, Motor City Casino (Detroit), FireKeepers Casino (Michigan) and the Imperial Palace Biloxi (Mississippi).

IGT CEO Patti Hart said that the Cosmopolitan is now going to be an integral part of this one-of-a kind momentum of testing gaming operator flexibility and player choice with the server-based system.

Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Chief Executive Officer John Unwin said that having server-based system already in place when the facility opens was a vital product of the establishment since it is needed for player marketing purposes.
