The TwinStar cabinet, the ArgOS operating system and these two new game themes are approved in multiple jurisdictions, including California, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Wisconsin and New York. Additional approvals are anticipated in the coming weeks.
 
Gavin Isaacs, President and CEO, said, “The TwinStar cabinet is a major achievement in our integration strategy, involving the collaboration of our hardware, operating systems, game development, quality assurance and many other support teams around the globe. I am delighted that the initial production of our TwinStar units is sold out for this quarter, with expected shipments to occur in the final weeks of December. With Twinstar and Dualos now approved, we have two innovative dual-screen video cabinets for our customers around the world.”
 
The TwinStar for-sale cabinet features dual, vivid, 24-inch full HD displays and debuts the ArgOS state-of-the-art operating system that combines the best technology and content from two of the industry’s strongest slot brands—Bally and WMS—giving casino operators the ability to adapt it for their players. Scientific Games' innovators have also developed exclusive new game titles for TwinStar to take advantage of the processing power of this trailblazing platform. Game themes will include player-favorite Bally and WMS brands such as Gold Fish Deluxe, Quick Hit, Quick Shot Dwanwu and Zeus, along with exciting new games Steam Dream and Hot Blooded.
 
“The approval of this cabinet heralds the next great evolution in casino gaming. No detail has been overlooked in creating this state-of-the-art platform,” Mr. Isaacs added. “TwinStar will give casinos a great deal of flexibility in choosing the very best content from two innovative and proven gaming brands to excite players and optimize the potential of their casino floor.”
 
Featuring Scientific Games’ new CPU 4X which offers 90 percent better processing power and unlocks a new level of gameplay and mathematical experiences, TwinStar builds on the award-winning iDeckbutton deck by offering a 40-percent larger area for player interaction. TwinStar's 22-inch full HD digital topper is offered in two distinctive styles. Both versions include chrome details, improved sound, and edge lighting, adding beauty and excitement to casino floors.
Isaacs notes that WMS and Bally brand content will preserve many of the features that players love, including Quick Hits symbol-driven multiple progressives and Goldfish’s low volatility-high frequency hits.
