Florida once again welcomes EGT machines
Apr 21, 2015
Euro Games Technology’s advance in the US market continues with a new installation in Florida. Reel Games Inc., EGT’s partner for the region, supplied Calder Casino & Race Course with P-24/24 Upright cabinets from the renowned Premier Series. The entertainment complex, owned by Churchill Downs Company, is located in Miami Gardens and hosts 1200 slot machines and one of the most successful pari-mutuel franchises in Florida’s history that originally opened in 1971.
Sean Smith, President of Reel Games, commented: “We are very excited to have another high profile installation under our belt. Our steady approach to rolling out EGT’s products in North America has proven to be effective. The installation at Calder Casino & Race Course is another step forward towards gaining significant market share in the many locations we are already licensed.”
Calder Casino & Race Course took advantage of the flexible configurations EGT has to offer, and chose a custom set-up for their new cabinets. They include the Premier Multi-4 game mix that contains 45 different games with various themes and line number options. The cabinets are linked in the classic Vega Jackpot System, which allows the connection of EGT machines into a local network, where they participate in the accumulation and the distribution of additional jackpot wins in real time. The system maintains up to 48 independent symbol driven progressive jackpots, with maximum 4 denominations each, or up to 3 mystery jackpots – Mini, Middle, and Super, common for the chosen denominations.
Paul Pippin, Senior Director of Slot Operations for Calder Casino stated: “We are excited to finally have these machines on the casino floor. The new multi-game mix includes 10-50 line various game titles, and fruit-themed slots which are highly popular with the local players. We look forward to the performance which is already beyond expectations.”
Overseeing the installation, Nadia Popova from EGT office in Panama commented: “We are very pleased with this installation and with the interest in our games. We look forward to expanding strong in Florida and, together with Reel Games, to introduce further exciting innovations. In fact, we are already planning installations of our progressive jackpot system Egypt Quest which has proven successful in many countries – it is a favorite among operators and players alike. That’s why we have reason to believe that it won’t become unnoticed by US players as well.”
