Marks the first time in North America that heterogeneous games are linked to the same progressive jackpot
Monte Carlo Resort & Casino in Las Vegas has installed five DEQ Systems Corp. G3 bonusing systems on several different poker derivatives and connected them into the same progressive jackpot as the currently installed Caribbean Stud game already equipped with the G3 bonusing platform.
DEQ called the installation a cornerstone for the company and the North American casino industry as this is the first time in North America that heterogeneous games are linked to the same progressive jackpot. DEQ has proven this concept in many other countries and is now introducing this new incremental revenue source for table games in North America with the innovative leadership at Monte Carlo.
“The G3 has been doing great for us on Caribbean Stud,” Gracie Olson, Monte Carlo vice president of table games, said in a news release. “With the average bet way above the traditional one dollar bet per player, we thought it was the right time to expand the G3’s capacity to generate new incremental revenue on the other poker derivatives at the Monte Carlo such as Three Card Poker, Crazy 4 Poker and Texas Hold’em Bonus. The G3 proved itself immediately and generated an impressive amount of new incremental revenue right from day one. The installation was seamless and very rapid and the players took to the extra action immediately and we really appreciate the advanced reporting and real time data.”
DEQ President and CEO Earle G. Hall said the company is thrilled by Olson’s vision and desire to innovate at Monte Carlo, “and she has definitely left her mark in the industry by going first in North America.”
“We have been connecting all types of games together for years in many countries around the world and we are very happy to finally be doing the same in Las Vegas and especially with the Monte Carlo. Our vision is simple: One Planet, One Jackpot, and to start connecting Monte Carlo’s poker derivatives is a solid step in the right direction.”
