Joint effort combines technologies to create integrated product line
Atronic and International Game Technology recently announced a partnership to co-develop a fully integrated solution for Atronic’s Server Assisted Gaming product line. The solution utilizes IGT’s AVP game platform and will be interoperable with its own server-based open networks.
The solution was unveiled at this year’s Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas. Games featuring this technology were shown in Atronic’s new e-motionSC cabinet. The new box is an upgrade to the current e-motion product with a new look, redesigned player interface and future-proof technology to accommodate Atronic’s SAG solutions.
Both companies called the partnership an important step toward providing casino operators a seamless solution for server-assisted gaming. The co-developed solution is the first fully-integrated one of its kind, providing operators with a mechanism to deliver the complete suite of server-assisted functionality to the casino floor, the company said in a recent release.
“We are excited about this cooperation which will enable our North American customers to receive cutting-edge Server Assisted Gaming technology from Atronic,” said Gerhard Burda, CEO of Atronic. “IGT’s technology leadership and vast IP portfolio are set to define a global industry standard, and we are proud to be part of it from the very beginning.”
“We continue to progress toward our vision becoming reality, with server-based products of all suppliers working in concert to provide casino-wide services and solutions,” added Steve Morro, chief operating officer of IGT. “Our AVP platform and its integration in Atronic’s cabinet, as well as in IGT’s new cabinets, will provide the needed interoperability to drive the new technology.”
