Bally's Two for the Money offers shared-gaming player experience
January 14, 2010
Bally Technologies touts its new DualVision as a shared-gaming experience unlike anything else ever developed for the global casino industry.
Featuring a wide bench seat and an extra-wide video display, DualVision is perfect for two people who want to share their luck and their bankroll. Or for one player who wants to double his or her gaming action by playing two separate games at once.
DualVision, debuting first on the new Two for the Money game, targets a largely untapped market of players who enjoy experiencing gaming together. Rather than being the “odd person out” who watches their friend or partner from the sidelines, DualVision encourages people to both cooperate and compete against one another. Bally has even coined a new word describing this unique gaming activity: “Coopertition Game Play” (Cooperation + Competition = Coopertition!)
DualVision’s groundbreaking new cabinet design features a 1360 X 768 high-definition, 32-inch widescreen display in a patented, five-sided “wedge-shaped” circular configuration called the “PentaPod.” Additionally, the platform’s distinctive dual seating configuration combines comfort and style in a space-saving design designed especially for couples’ play. Players pool their bankroll playing two separate games side-by-side but collectively sharing in the each game’s wins or losses. Shared bonus events encourage communal play as players cooperate to enhance their opportunity for bigger payouts.
The debut DualVision game is aptly called, “Two for the Money,” which was expressly developed for this two-person gaming concept. Two for the Money is a 10-reel, 50-line game with a 250-credit max bet, which can be configured at either a penny or a nickel denomination (penny denomination is recommended).
The game features two separate sets of reels with their own pay lines and win meters. Additionally, Two for the Money offers a seven-level internal/external “Quick Hit” – style progressive. The Two for the Money Bonus is a free-games bonus event in which the player selects from 12 Mystery Locks by touching the display. Players can win up to 50 free games.
Other key features of DualVision include a one gigahertz processor, dual Easy Select button deck, padded armrest with integrated cup holders, space for a player-tracking system such as Bally’s award-winning iVIEW display, dramatic LED lighting effects and EasyView game display interface for easier playability.
