Las Vegas Gaming relaunches keno game with hourly drawings



Las Vegas Gaming Inc. (LVGI) has relaunched its keno game, Nevada Numbers, with hourly drawings, increasing players’ opportunities of winning a progressive jackpot amounting to over $5 million.  Previously, ball draws occurred daily at 6 p.m. By increasing the ball draw to every hour -- everyday, players can now play up to 336 games in a row, a substantial increase from just the 50 games they were able to purchase before the change.  

"We’re thrilled to offer our players far more chances to win this life-changing progressive jackpot,” said Jon Berkley, LVGI’s President and CEO. “For just $2 a ticket and now with drawings occurring every hour, Nevada Numbers is more exciting than ever!”  

In September 2007, Las Vegas Gaming paid out a Nevada Numbers jackpot of $6,376,452, the largest keno jackpot in Nevada’s history.  The winning ticket was purchased at Sam’s Town, one of the many casinos where the game is offered.  

“The impact that the Nevada Numbers Jackpot had on that lucky winner is profound and we hope to have ever increasing opportunities to change people’s lives with this move to an hourly drawing,” said Berkley.

Nevada Numbers, The Million Dollar Ticket and Super Bingo Games are just a few of the games LVGI offers in many casinos throughout Nevada.  Utilizing the NumberVision application thru LVGI’s PlayerVision technology, customers will be able to purchase a Nevada Numbers ticket directly from a slot machine in the near future.   

“With the NumberVision application, we will be able to greatly increase the offering of our games,” Berkley stated.  

Along with the NumberVision application, PlayerVision applications will enable real- time wagering opportunities, promotions, bonusing, CRM content, advertising and other content. The PlayerVision system and application portfolio can be delivered on new and existing gaming machines’ main video screens, player tracking screens, or side mount screens as well as via IGT’s sbX products.  Berkley also explains that select PlayerVision software applications can be delivered in hotel rooms, mobile devices and to digital signage, “allowing operators to interact and enhance all ‘touch points’ the player encounters.”  

Thru these innovative applications, the PlayerVision system enables gaming operators to reduce operating cost while simultaneously increasing customer satisfaction, time on device, and per-customer revenue -- all critical necessities for operators in today’s economic climate.
