International Game Technology PLC (IGT) has secured 35 percent gaming machine floor share at the newly opened Casino Luckia Arica in Chile and reveled its Texas Tea skill-based slot machine would be housed at a number of locations throughout the country.
The installation at Casino Luckia Arica is comprised of five different IGT cabinets—the AXXIS 23/23, the CrystalDual, the CrystalSlant, the OXYGEN and the award-winning S3000, according to a press release. The IGT cabinets at Casino Luckia Arica feature a myriad of player-favorite IGT game themes such as Golden Eagle, Party Time!, and the diversity HD multi-game suites.
“We knew that it was critical to include a range of IGT solutions to realize our vision of a world-class gaming destination at Casino Luckia Arica,” said Peter Müffeler Vergara, general manager of Casino Luckia. “We worked closely with IGT to identify the ideal combination of games and cabinets from its industry-leading portfolio that will help us entertain a wide spectrum of players and quickly become a player-favorite casino in Chile.”
In other regional news, the company has deployed its Texas Tea Pinball skill-based slot game at Enjoy Chile-operated casinos, Enjoy Coquimbo and Enjoy Viña del Mar. These installations mark the first placement of IGT’s Texas Tea Pinball game in Chile.
Texas Tea Pinball is part of IGT’s Video Reel Edge (VRE) game family. Housed on the CrystalCore Cabinet, the game gives players the opportunity to enjoy a traditional video slots base game, and the choice between a free games bonus or a skill-based bonus where a player’s pinball skill influences the bonus reward.
“IGT is thrilled to extend the success of Texas Tea Pinball to Chile,” said Jessica Luna, senior director sales Chile, Andean, Central America and Caribbean Region for IGT. “The skill-based game leverages innovation to engage players in a new way, and can help Enjoy Chile modernize its casino floors.”
