hat have you shown here in Mexico this year?
This year at ELA Mexico, BetStone launched Thunderstruck II, the highly anticipated sequel to Thunderstruck, which is being released to operators in the coming weeks and players are very excited about this new video slot. We also have the XGS System, cloud-based gaming software, which is a complete set of management tools for operators. This system enables Operators to manage the casino floor, from cash management through to complete floor analysis with real time reporting.

We are continuously developing new features to further enhance the XGS System which are released to Operators as they become available.
