Graphics, player interactivity and humor set the games apart from the competition

Ingenio, Loto-Québec's research and development subsidiary, has launched its second casino game, Dog Show, at Québec’s casinos.

This original slot machine game concept was developed in its entirety by Ingenio's professionals, who handled every step of the process, including scripting, visuals design, mathematical modeling and programming. Much like the first game Ingenio launched in the province last February, Hatch the Cash, Dog Show became a reality thanks to a strategic alliance with Bally Technologies, one of the world's largest game and gaming systems manufacturers.

In a news release, Ingenio noted that what sets Dog Show apart from traditional slot machines is its high-quality graphics and remarkable player interactivity, as well as subtle humor that adds just the right touch. For example, when touching a dog on the screen, players will be surprised to see it react. Three bonus modes, including two inspired by traditional dog shows, will enliven the player's experience.

“Dog Show is yet another great example of the originality and creativity that characterize this portion of our R&D work, which is intended to bring new life to casinos' game offerings,” said Ingenio general manager Nathalie Rajotte.

Bally Technologies began marketing this second game in Ingenio's casino product line-up in Delaware in early 2009. The game has followed the same route as Hatch the Cash™, which is available at more than 130 casinos worldwide, in more than 30 jurisdictions from China to South America, from Europe to the United States.

Twenty-two Dog Show machines will be set up at Québec's four casinos this summer.
