Addresses growing demand for next-generation mechanical reel products from WMS Gaming

Based on its Transmissive Reels gaming technology platform, WMS Gaming launched a new “for-sale” gaming machine that the company claims is the industry’s first mechanical reel product to offer a multi-game feature set, while also providing a solution for bringing the advantages of networked, server-enabled gaming to mechanical reel products.

Using WMS’ Hot Hot Super Jackpot brand and bonusing feature, the new multi-game product addresses the growing industry demand for next-generation mechanical reel products. With the multi-game offering, casino patrons can choose from four different games, each with a unique pay table and bonusing. From Clumped Wild symbols to variable multiplying Wild symbols, these WMS games feature visual graphics that surround and overlay the spinning reels. By combining classic mechanical reels with this enhanced visual experience, WMS brings casino operators the ability to offer patrons another differentiated entertainment experience.

Enabled by the enhanced power of WMS’ CPU-NXT 2 operating system, Transmissive Reels gaming products provide the action of authentic mechanical reels with the visually engaging play experience of a 3D, digital graphical interface. The video animation can occur around, over and seemingly interactively with the mechanical reels. By combining mechanical reel and video action, the technology creates a nearly unlimited set of mathematical outcomes.
