Casino players can “Xperience the Difference” in a new gaming sensation from Aristocrat. The company’s latest innovation, the MarsX cabinet, has touched down first at Graton Resort & Casino in Rohnert Park, Calif., and will soon be coming to casinos everywhere.
The innovative MarsX cabinet gives operators an entirely new way to illuminate their player’s Xperience with both game sales content as well as premium content lease options.
“At Aristocrat, we have an unequaled passion for play. We never stop thinking about our customers and their players, and how we can bring the game to out-of-this-world levels of fun and entertainment,” said Nathan Drane, vice president commercial strategy, games sales and Class II.
Sleek, modern and inventive, the MarsX cabinet sparks a revolution in game floor layout. Operators can appreciate the design of the MarsX machine, which fits into any standard cabinet space. When placed back-to-back, its unique shape opens sight lines across the casino.
Additionally, its ergonomic design provides more efficient accessibility for field service technicians, decreasing service time in the field. Game-complimentary corona sync edge lighting creates a unique play environment. LCD toppers are supported with game-driven content for added entertainment.
For players, the new MarsX cabinet has two 27” 4k displays and new Gen 9™ internal components drive performance and allow for uninterrupted high-speed game play. A premium virtual button deck offers a high definition and a minimalistic way of wagering. Incorporated into the deck is the latest in wireless charging technology, allowing players to charge their phone by simply placing it onto the deck. A 4:1 speaker system optimally projects audio from around the displays, providing crisp, balanced sound.
The MarsX cabinet is launching with five industry-leading titles leveraging Aristocrat’s biggest brands and bringing innovation to the games sales space. Buffalo Gold Revolution is the latest installment in Aristocrat’s Buffalo franchise which extends on the top performing Buffalo Gold with a new jackpot wheel and base game feature. This feature can turn royal symbols into Buffalo on any spin. The Mighty Cash brand expands onto MarsX by leveraging the strong Hold & Spin mechanic and combining it with a Metamorphic trigger pot for the first time. Finally, the new Fu Dai Lian Lian franchise will feature an industry-first -- three metamorphic pots, and each pot can trigger a unique feature.
The MarsX cabinet is taking the industry by storm with Dollar Storm, a lease option for this mode. Dollar Storm is the evolution of the two products, Lightning Link and Dragon Link, with an added MSP. It contains the best of both of those games, specifically, Dollar Storm takes the globally recognizable theming of Lightning Link to the next level while incorporating high denominations inspired by Dragon Link - 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 25c, $1, $2 and an operator-configurable $5 option, and then adds an “any bet qualifies” rapid-hitting multi-site progressive starting at $50,000 for increased excitement. Featuring the player favorite “Hold & Spin” bonus, Dollar Storm provides patrons with plenty of familiar “What You See Is What You Get” fun. Players can win the MSP during the Hold & Spin bonus with a new MSP trigger mechanic, as well as the GRAND Jackpot, MAJOR Jackpot, MINOR and MINI Bonuses and credit prizes using the same familiar functionality as Lightning Link and Dragon Link. Dollar Storm themes include Emperor’s Treasure, Caribbean Gold, Egyptian Jewels, and Ninja Moon.
