New XSpin(tm) Platform Delivers Class II Gaming with Class III Player Appeal(June 02, 2014)
Franklin, TN., June 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VGT's new breakthrough platform is proving Class
II can deliver the technical sophistication and design quality of
Class III gaming--and then some.
"The XSpin™ platform raises the bar
in a gaming market with a reputation for less game variety and wow
factor compared to Class III," said VGT CEO Jon Yarbrough. "Players
haven't seen anything like this before."
For casino operators, the XSpin platform
delivers on VGT's promise to add competitive Class II video to its
product lineup. "Our mechanical reel games are very popular, but
video products make up more than half of the gaming market today,"
said James Starr, VGT's executive vice president of Sales. "The
technical architecture of the XSpin platform can deliver
high-quality video--and later, additional mechanical reel--games to
market quickly for the benefit of customers and players."
The first two games on the XSpin platform to hit
casino floors are Frankenstein™ and Lizards
on the Loose™, which promise players a world-class
gaming experience complete with high-impact 3D images, film-quality
animation and unrivaled sound. "In addition to visual quality,
these games bring a level of edginess to gaming for players looking
for something unique," said VGT's Vice President of Game Design
Frankenstein uses realistic imagery for
a horror-film experience unlike most of the cartoonish games on the
market today. Most of the game is displayed in black and white, but
flashes of red, lightning strikes and the sounds of thunder make
appearances to provide an extra level of entertainment.
Lizards on the Loose increases the
level of engagement with players by injecting bold personalities
into the characters. The main character interacts during game play
by helping to turn symbols wild and gain players free spins.
VGT's business plan calls for the placement of
more than 1,000 machines on the XSpin platform and the release of
six new video game titles before the end of the year. "Players
expect an ongoing pipeline of new game titles, and with the XSpin
platform, VGT will deliver," Yarbrough said.
