At Sands Macao

Leap Forward Gaming announced launch of SaffariNet PiP Ecosystem

(Macau).- Leap Forward Gaming (LFG) has created a revolutionary patented Picture-in-Picture (PiP) technology that was recently installed at Sands Macao, one of the Venetian Macau Limited (VML) family of casino properties. VML is a subsidiary of Sands China. LFG’s PiP solution, known as Patron Display Interface (PDI), was selected as a “Top Ten Slot Floor Product” at the 2012 Slot Floor Technology Awards.


DI is a low-cost, turn-key solution that works seamlessly with all brands and generations of gaming machines, supporting all screen sizes, resolutions and aspect ratios.  It is a robust, completely customizable system utilizing the existing machine displays to develop, dynamically manage and present content to players, allowing for targeted marketing and bonusing campaigns and straightforward integration with multiple customer relationship management (CRM) systems.

PDI enables players to view and interact in real-time with configurable multimedia content on the machine screen, without impacting game play. Real-time video streaming, animations, marketing messages, promotions, ads, session points, promotional credits and all player account information are just a touch away right on the game screen, ushering in a new era of creativity for operators along with interactivity for players.

Tim Merrill, Vice President of Casino Operations for Venetian Macau Limited added, “VML has always embraced leading-edge technology that provides our players with added-value and improves operational efficiencies and maximizes profitability.  We believe that the SaffariNet Picture-in-Picture solution has great promise for all Venetian Macau Limited properties and we look forward to our continued partnership with LFG.”  

Leap Forward Gaming CEO Ali Saffari said, “Casino operators asked us to develop a low-cost, flexible and retrofittable Picture-in-Picture solution that works on all gaming machines and with all player tracking systems. We listened, and our patented PDI technology is the Picture-in-Picture solution the industry has been waiting for.  LFG’s PDI solution provides players with a greatly enhanced gaming experience and allows operators to utilize their existing machines and infrastructure, consequently maximizing profitability.  Sands Macao is the first of many major properties slated for installation of our ecosystem in Q1/Q2 of 2013.”

A recent Eilers-Fantini Quarterly Slot Survey tracked slot machine and gaming technology purchasing trends of gaming operators.  A key summary finding was that operators are looking to add Picture-in-Picture technology to their gaming floors. The summary states that roughly 33% of participants plan to install “Picture-in-Picture” (PiP) system technology over the next 12 months.
