riven by player behaviour and preference, the cloud-enabled casinos can make informed real-time decisions about which IGT games to deploy on each terminal.
Simon Beacham, head of electronic gaming at Grosvenor Casinos, said: “We are always looking for ways to provide our players with the very best gaming experiences possible. Through our IGT Cloud we now have the ability to evaluate the performance of games and quickly offer the best and newest IGT games to our players. Now our customers can benefit from a customised gambling experience with the games they want available at a touch of a button."
Cloud adoption also represents a significant step forward in casino management. Where previously machine performance could only be measured on a terminal-by-terminal basis, the analytical tools provided by the IGT Cloud will enable important insight into product performance on a game-by-game basis. By instantly being able to analyse player trend data and other key performance indicators the casino operator can act on strategic information to optimise floor potential.
“The deployment of the world’s first multi-site cloud casino environment with Grosvenor Casinos is a sign of IGT’s forward thinking approach to driving technological innovation in the gambling industry" says Sabby Gill, regional VP for EMEA and Latin America at IGT. “The IGT Cloud gives casinos the ability to optimise the gaming floor, thereby driving revenue and enhancing the gaming experience for the player.”
The IGT Cloud will allow Grosvenor Casinos to pursue a convergence strategy joining up the land-based, online and mobile platforms, without the casinos needing to make any significant infrastructure investments. The initial launch includes a total of 26 AVPs connected, with plans to extend the cloud offering to other Grosvenor Casinos sites later in the year.
