IGT server-based gaming debuts in Pennsylvania
September 20, 2012
The Meadows Racetrack & Casino becomes the first casino to
operate server‐based gaming in the state of Pennsylvania
The Meadows Racetrack and Casino, a Cannery Casino Resorts property located in Washington, Pa., has installed 40 sbX slots from International game Technology (IGT), marking the first arrival of server-based gaming in the state of Pennsylvania.
“As a current IGT Advantage customer, we were looking to expand our systems capability and yield the benefit of having a server‐based floor by offering the newest themes before the competition,” said Ryan Paulos at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino. “It also allows us to determine which themes will work before we spend the capital for conversion kits to bring those themes to the main floor.”
This implementation of server‐based gaming means that The Meadows Casino will have the opportunity to provide new games to their floor at a faster rate than casinos in the area which are not equipped with the same functionality.
“The Meadows Racetrack and Casino will benefit greatly from having a casino floor that is connected to a central server,” said Eric Tom, IGT executive vice president of global sales. “They are gaining a competitive advantage by having access to IGT's expansive game theme library, which will allow them to meet changing player demands, at a rapid pace.”
