n May, a bank of Stargate SG-1 machines debuted at Grand Casino Bern, followed by installations in Locarno and Bad Ragaz. Further Stargate installations are planned at Casino Barriérede Montreux and Grand Casino Lugano. Available on the premium double screen e² or e² Slant cabinet, and based on the blockbuster movie and internationally popular TV series, Stargate SG-1 offers five distinct bonuses and four progressive levels.
The Stargate games have been busy since installation and are performing well across the country. At Casino Locarno, Stargate SG-1 is one of the top performers and is improving the total floor average.
Grand Casino Bern is also experiencing high traffic on the machines, said Gerhard Stiegler, Technical Director, Grand Casino Bern. “Stargate SG-1’s attractive signage and compelling graphics draw players to this game,” said Stiegler. “At the same time, the randomly triggered bonuses keep them intrigued and entertained. Stargate has been a great investment for Grand Casino Bern.”
At Grand Casino Basel players were queuing to try the new games when the Stargate SG-1 bank was launched with a festive ribbon-cutting ceremony beginning of August. “Our guests were immediately drawn to the Stargate SG-1 machines,” said Eugenio di Palma, Slot Manager at Grand Casino Basel. “Grand Casino Basel is always committed to offering the best player experience and the most exciting gaming products to our guests. It´s great to see players getting excited to enter the Jackpot Bonus, and we are confident that the new Stargate SG-1 slot machines will continue to be a success for our casino.”
The Stargate SG-1 link features an immediately recognizable theme. It represents the longest running science fiction series in American TV history. The game has garnered international appeal, and has won many consumer prizes.
Players can collect big wins with Stargate SG-1’s four progressive jackpot levels. By playing the optional bonus bet, players have a chance to win five different linked bonuses, in addition to the base game’s individual bonus features. This variety of different bonuses and game features will generate line-ups as players strive for a chance to visit the Stargate universe.
“We are very pleased that numerous casinos in Switzerland have chosen our multi-bonus progressive link Stargate SG-1 and that the games have immediately proven successful with Swiss players, just as they have elsewhere,” added Virginie Bellaton, Regional Sales Manager for Atronic.
With these installations, Atronic International has significantly increased its market share in Switzerland, and thanks to strong initial results, the company expects to add additional products to this jurisdiction.
