Acres Manufacturing Company (AMC) is introducing its PayAction Sports Bonus as part of its 2021 Global Gaming Expo lineup, announced the company on Thursday. The casino bonus uses a live sports data feed to trigger a bonus round on any slot machine connected to AMC’s Foundation casino management system.
“Foundation gives casinos unprecedented ability to connect slot machine behavior with live real-world events,” said Noah Acres of AMC. “Players are going to love the feeling of winning more just because their favorite team score, and they’ll be willing to play more just to experience the thrill.”
The PayAction Sports Bonus works by interfacing a live sports data feed with any slot machine connected to Acres’ CMS. When a goal, touchdown or other configured event occurs, all designated machines enter a bonus sequence that is automatically paid to the game’s credit meter, explains the company in a press release.
“These machines will pay double whenever the Golden Knights score in an NHL game,” exemplified Noah Acres, gesturing towards a bank of slot machines at AMC’s office during a recent Golden Knights preseason NHL game.
When the team scored a goal early in the 2nd period, a loud goal horn sounded, and AMC’s slot machines entered a celebration mode. This indicated that all pays would be doubled for 90 seconds as a result of the casino bonus.
The casino loyalty and technology expert company describes the bonus triggered by live sporting events as highly configurable: casinos are able to select any team or player in any sport into the promotion.
Any measurable statistic can be used to trigger the bonus and prizes can be paid to the game’s credit meter or to the Acres Wallet in either cashable or non-cashable credits. Moreover, eligibility can also be configured to ensure profitable operation of the bonus.
“We’re actively negotiating with sports franchises, athletes and brands interested in distributing their own branded jackpots,” said Noah Acres. “PayAction is just the latest example of how AMC is using Foundation to reinvent the player experience.”
