he new placements reflect WMS’ Player Driven Innovation, as the company continues to develop games and platforms that provide some of the industry’s most exciting entertainment experiences, which slot players worldwide are increasingly seeking out.
“Our ability to gain growing share in international markets is a testament to the terrific entertainment experiences our game developers and engineers continue to produce as a result of our Culture of Innovation,” said Sebastian Salat, President, WMS International.
The high market share in Spain’s newest casinos also reflects recent revisions in gaming laws in certain regions of the country – such as the Mediterranean Coast. “With a growing number of regions in Spain revising their gaming regulations, including removing certain max wagering limits, our products are increasingly seen by operators as providing a significantly high return on investment,” added Salat. “We believe the growing popularity of our products with players and casino operators, combined with further changes to gaming laws in various Spanish jurisdictions, will result in a steadily increasing number of WMS games across Spain.”
Almost all of the new WMS games placed in the Grand Casino Costa Brava and Casino de Valencia are offered on the networked-enabled, next-generation Bluebird 2 cabinet and reflect a broad mix of some of WMS’ most popular video reel offerings, including: Spinning Streak, which offers players the ability to hold winning symbols and try for more on the same spin; Lucky Penny, a 5-Reel video bonus bank powered by the company’s next generation CPU-NXT2 platform to deliver state of the art real-time 3D graphics, and featuring WMS’ unique Advanced Random Intelligence Algorithm (ARIA) technology which creates trillions of different game and bonus permutations.
The newest games in WMS’ Cascading Reels series of Innovation games; Jackpot Party Progressive, a local area progressive featuring four progressive jackpot meters and the highly-popular Jackpot Party brand and bonus; the new G+ 5-reel mechanical reel series, which brings the excitement of volatile, primarily free-spin based games to a mechanical format; and, Hot Hot Super Respin 5-Reel Video series, a G+ based 4x5 reel layout that offers 50 paylines for 40 credits where players can trigger the Super Respin feature with clumped wild symbols.
