Inspired Gaming Group, the leading player in the Open Server-Based Gaming (Open SBG™) market, will unveil more products and content than ever before at this year’s International Gaming Expo (IGE) in London, following a strategic focus on innovation over the past 12 months. Inspired Gaming will be taking stand #4060 to showcase new products for the casino, bingo, betting and street gaming markets, alongside its established, award-winning products.
Visitors to Inspired Gaming’s stand will be able to interact with four distinct areas; betting, bingo, casino and street gaming, and experience the full range of Inspired Gaming’s offering from virtual racing to handheld bingo. One highlight looks set to be the ‘Vegas Bank’, featuring a wall of Inspired Gaming’s new casino style slot machine ‘Centurion’, which has been designed specifically for the casino and arcade market with the widest range of quality content available in the market today.
Automated Blackjack is Inspired Gaming’s pioneering automated banker game that bolts onto a live blackjack table and is aimed at both the UK and international casino markets. With unsurpassed methodology, the casino product offers the choice of two different modes. The first ‘fully automatic’ mode allows an unlimited number of players to participate remotely, and bet on multiple hands, via an electronic terminal. Innovative camera recognition software is used to track play and the game is dealt by a croupier taking direction from a dealer console. The second mode allows remote terminal players to ‘back bet’ on live players seated at the table, meaning the players have all the benefits of playing live at the table but without any distractions.
Inspired Gaming’s multi-content terminal allows Automated Blackjack to be delivered alongside Inspired Gaming’s best in class Multi-Win Roulette, offering the customer ultimate choice and flexibility with two casino staples on the same terminal. Casino trials of Inspired Gaming’s Automated Blackjack will go live following its launch at ICE and Baccarat (or Punto Banco) will also be available on the same terminal shortly.
Internationally and in the UK, Inspired Gaming looks set to increase its dominance in the virtual gaming market with the launch of ‘Virtual Racing Platinum’ – the next generation in virtual racing. VHR Platinum boasts a host of graphical improvements such as a choice of weather variations - from snow to sunshine or even night-time - improved horse animation, photo realistic back plates and dynamic advertising hoardings. The way the horses or dogs interact has also been revolutionised, making it the most technologically advanced virtual racing product on the market.
Developed primarily with the international market in-mind, Inspired Gaming’s Pay As you Go Open SBG™/ International Electronic Gaming Machines (IEGM) is designed to work in most street gaming environments worldwide, regardless of broadband availability. This out-of-the-box unconnected solution makes it easier for clients in developing or remote countries to adopt Inspired Gaming’s Open SBG™ technology and the advantages that come with it. The terminal uses a built-in, pre-paid revenue share license model and can enable a variety of content from skill with prize and entertainment to gaming and video lottery.
Reinforcing its lead as the UK’s largest supplier to the LBO industry, Inspired Gaming will be exhibiting the market-leading ‘Rainmaker’ cabinet – a favourite with the largest players, such as Betfred, and independent LBO’s alike. Inspired Gaming will also be unveiling the hotly anticipated ‘next generation’ cabinet, which boasts cutting edge technology, revolutionary design and a multitude of other must-see features.
Another corner of the Inspired Gaming stand will be dedicated to Inspired Gaming’s ‘Bingo Handheld’ product. The tablet PC has a 12.4 inch screen, but its Wi-Fi enabled portability allows bingo players more flexibility and freedom to socialise without compromising on the functionality of Inspired Gaming’s popular Bingo Multi Win product. As well as main-stage bingo and MCB, the console offers a host of slot games to ensure maximum entertainment for consumers.
Luke Alvarez, co-CEO of Inspired Gaming, commented: “This is the most exciting ICE to date for Inspired Gaming and we’re looking forward to unveiling a raft of innovative games and products we have been developing over the past year for the casino, betting, bingo, adult gaming centre and street gaming markets. The challenge for the leisure industry in 2009 is to keep existing customers and attract new ones, despite changing markets. Our world-leading Open SBG™ platform and products appeal to customers by driving higher revenues through flexibility, high speed download of content, game scheduling and management, and remote fixes.”
Inspired Gaming will be exhibiting on Stand # 4060 at ICE, Earl’s Court, from 27 to 29 January 2009.
