TCSJOHNHUXLEY, the leading global innovator of live gaming solutions, featured a new table games showcase at G2E 2017.
Lucky Ball RouletteTM made its debut at the show as the newest game in the TCSJOHNHUXLEY portfolio after an agreement was signed with Gaming Entertainment Systems Pty Ltd (GES) to distribute their side bet system across the Americas, UK and Europe. Lucky Ball Roulette is a suspense building side-bet for the traditional game of Roulette. Easy to play and with no impact on the base game, players bet on any or all of the coloured Lucky Ball Roulette™ bet options that are each given a randomly generated number for each game. If the base Roulette games’ number matches with one of the randomly allocated coloured Lucky Ball Roulette™ numbers, the player wins, it’s as simple as that.
Following the launch in Asia earlier in the year, three new proprietary and side bet innovations from Crown Resorts games were introduced to the US market. Nutz, Dice Duel and S7REAK, designed by CLUB Gaming Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Crown Resorts Limited, have all been developed and tested in-house leveraging Crown’s first-hand experience to monitor performance and effectiveness, which reduces the risk when placing new games.
Nutz, is a simple and easy to play dice game where players aim to roll Five of a Kind from three rolls of the dice. Currently running across three tables in the Crown Melbourne property, this fun and sociable game allows players to be part of the action by shaking the dice.
Dice Duel is a fast-paced game played with two standard dice (Red & Gold) where players bet on which colour will show the highest result. With nine bets available, Red, Gold, Tie and 1 through to 6 number bets, players must place at least one wager and are allowed up to 9 wagers.
Dynamic and exciting, S7REAK is a simple card game where players bet on Red, Black or Suit Up, indicating which bet they think the S7REAK card will be. With few betting options offering a wide variety of payouts, this original game has a high level of player engagement.
Alongside these was Progressive 3 Card Draw Poker which allowed visitors to experience the power of the GFL Bonusing platform. This fast-paced poker game has proved very popular with players as the dealer always qualifies, so all winning player hands pay. With the added benefit of GFL Bonsuing, players can tap into multiple jackpots that can be set to provide event-based or mystery-based payouts.
Steph Nel, TCSJOHNHUXLEY General Manager of the Americas comments, “Our new games showcase features a range of offerings that will appeal to all types of operators and players alike. Lucky Ball Roulette brings a simple, yet effective concept to Roulette, the Crown suite of games are totally unique and provide a high level of player interaction, whilst Progressive 3 Card Draw Poker, utilizes our GFL Platform allowing the flexibility to choose multiple jackpots that keep players engaged and staying longer at the tables. They all deliver exciting additions to the casino operators’ gaming mix.”
