Just prior to G2E, Scientific Games announced that one of its subsidiaries had signed an agreement with Mersoy Turizm Otelcik Islet to supply its Elexus Hotel Resort Casino in North Cyprus with a broad portfolio of its WMS- and Bally-branded gaming machines and Shuffle Master table products.

Mersoy Turizm is owned by an international group that operates several resorts and travel agencies around the globe. It conducted an extensive evaluation and competitive bidding process before choosing a broad array of Scientific Games' WMS, Bally and Shuffle Master products for its cutting-edge casino that was scheduled to open last month. The Elexus Hotel Resort Casino, located in the seaside community of Girne, will be the largest resort in North Cyprus.

“We selected Scientific Games as our preferred business partner because of its diverse portfolio of gaming products combined with high-level product support,” said Ibrahim Esen, casino director for Elexus Hotel Resort Casino in a prepared statement. “We believe that the popular WMS, Bally and Shuffle Master product brands will add tremendous gaming excitement for our customers and will help drive our revenues.”

Elexus Hotel Resort Casino will offer its customers Scientific Games' most powerful and sophisticated games platforms and more than 90 WMS and Bally game titles—accounting for up to 40 percent of the new electronic gaming devices on the casino floor. Also, the casino will open with Scientific Games’ state-of-the-art video, spinning reel, and specialty game cabinets, including the newly introduced WMS BLADE s23 cabinet and the Bally Pro V27-27 Slant cabinet.

In addition, Scientific Games’ Shuffle Master-branded games will account for 100 percent floor share of new table products.
