The Global Gaming Expo showcases the next best thing when it comes to casino games and machines. The expo featured stuff from major distributors of gambling technology today. We looked at what is coming soon to casino floors in your area.
Some of the high-tech stuff include stand-alone sports betting booths, state-of-the-art slots machines, and 4D interactive screens. You might think that they are just figments of one’s imaginations but they will soon conquer casinos worldwide.
New Innovations for Casino Floors
Stand-Alone Sports Betting Terminals – The CrystalBetting Terminal from IGT allows players to place bets, watch games, and create parlays in real-time. The terminal has a 27-inch touch screen with privacy wings to ensure the privacy of the user.
The terminal has a button deck tabletop for food, drinks, mobile devices, and notes. In fact, you can find them at the casino floors of the Pearl River Resort in Mississippi. Company officials told a sports bookie website that the machine will eventually find its way to Las Vegas and other tribal casinos in the US.
Themed Slot Machines – There was a lot of hype over slot machines based on popular TV shows, movies, or video games. A case in point is Konami’s gaming machine based on its video game franchise Silent Hill. The horror-themed slot machine is dark compared to other colorful slots on casino floors.
A pay per head bookie can’t get enough of the Star Trek: The Next Generation slot machine from Aristocrat. It features a 43-inch screen with sounds and graphics from the popular series.
4D Screens – IGT’s Wheel of Fortune has been around for over two decades. The company unveiled the latest version of the slot machine that uses 4D screen technology. As a result, the spinning images seem like they pop off the screen.
Also, the Global Gaming Expo had booths from suppliers of online bookie software. As sports betting becoming more popular worldwide, many people are trying to venture into the growing industry.
