Incredible Technologies wins Mississippi approval, commences Magic Touch sales
The license marks the sixth state--in addition to multiple licenses granted by Native American tribes--in which the Incredible Technologies (IT) will offer its Magic Touch video slot titles in North America.
“Magic Touch earnings and sales are continuing to gain momentum in the south,” said Elaine Hodgson, IT president and CEO. “Mississippi is one of the most important jurisdictions in the region with its diverse gaming landscape and active video slot player base. This milestone will help set yet another benchmark for the long-term viability of Magic Touch casino games.”
The Mississippi license came on the heels of IT’s announcement that its Magic Touch video slot games have successfully completed floor trials across the country and that it was launching sales initiative in the 21 jurisdictions in which they’re currently licensed. The most recent trials began this past March and were held for 90 days across a variety of exclusive test properties in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and California.
“The Magic Touch line has been a resounding success at Par-A-Dice,” said Cori Rutherford, vice president and general manager of Par-A-Dice Casino, Peoria, Ill., one of the test sites for IT games. “They have been among the most popular machines on our floor, and our guests just can’t get enough of them.”
By G2E 2011, the company plans to showcase a catalog of approximately 20 video slot titles, 30 video poker and 10 video keno games.
