n the past month, IGT has installed sbX Tier One packages at Ameristar Casino in St. Charles, Mobile and Barona Resort & Casino in San Diego, California.
"All of our server-based gaming initiatives have culminated in IGT being the first manufacturer to bring a G2S game management solution to market. This is an historic achievement for IGT, and for the gaming industry," said Javier Saenz, vice president of IGT Network Systems product management and marketing.
"Our message to the industry is that server-based solutions are available today. We are pleased that IP Biloxi has taken this important step, and we are excited about the progress our team has made to make this a reality."
Sales of the industry's first G2S game management solution have begun. IGT's partner properties and pilot locations have been critical to the company's preparation for commercial sales. Properties such as Ameristar St. Charles and Barona Resort & Casino have been instrumental in providing feedback about the system.
"This has been a collaborative process, and customer input has driven important product features in our commercial solution," said Saenz. "The fact that sbX is for sale today is a result of many other achievements, and IGT's continued commitment to bringing world-class solutions to the gaming industry."
