Galaxy Gaming Inc. has received approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board for the company's proprietary Bonus Jackpot System, which can now be offered to Nevada casinos for use on their table games.

The Bonus Jackpot System consists of two primary sub-systems: the Bet Tabulator System, which is used by casinos to detect and count the number and type of wagers players are making; and the TableVision System, which is an electronic display system used at each gaming table to exhibit payout odds, jackpots and bonuses.

When the two sub-systems are used together, the Bonus Jackpot System permits casinos to offer substantial jackpots and creative bonusing to their table game clientele.

The system competes with other table game progressive system platforms offered by two other companies. Using the latest state-of-the-art technology, Galaxy Gaming officials contend Galaxy’s platform is far more flexible, customizable and upgradable than platforms offered by its competitors, resulting in added benefits for the casino operator. Galaxy Gaming first introduced its Bonus Jackpot System in a Washington state casino in March of 2009. After the system quickly became popular, the company rolled it out to other Washington tribal and commercial casinos.

The initial version installed in Washington and elsewhere was labeled the “Milky Way Series.” The company's engineers continued to make improvements to the system and it released the “Andromeda Series - Stage 1” earlier this year and later, the "Andromeda Series - Stage 2,” which was the version just approved in Nevada. A Stage 3 release is expected within a few months.

"Washington State was a great locale for the introduction of our Bonus Jackpot System,” Galaxy Gaming CEO Robert Saucier said. “The success we enjoyed there was a great prelude for us to now expand our installed base of this product line into larger gaming markets like Nevada.”

The majority of the Galaxy Gaming’s games are designed to benefit from the special features of its Bonus Jackpot System, including the company’s latest game, Triple Attack Blackjack, which recently won first place in the coveted Casino Journal's Best New Table Games of 2010 and Emperor's Challenge Pai Gow Poker, which won second place in last year's competition.
