EAE Romania attendees who tour global gaming entertainment leader IGT’s stand 503 will be among the first to experience the Company’s new Cobalt 27 cabinet. IGT is leveraging the Romanian showcase as the platform for the striking cabinet’s world debut.
Despite IGT’s position as a multi-national Company, IGT intently focuses on developing and delivering localized solutions for its customers’ unique business needs and continued growth. The Cobalt 27 cabinet is a prime example of this principle in practice. Featuring two 27-inch displays, a dynamic button panel with dual bash buttons and a range of other, tech-advanced features such as a USB charging port and enhanced lighting, the new cabinet is designed to position IGT customers for success.
“Adding the Cobalt 27 cabinet to IGT’s already expansive hardware library will further position us to meet our International customers’ needs and help them enhance entertainment experiences for their players,” said Guenter Bluemel, IGT Vice President Content and Product Management. “The cabinet can accommodate a vast range of IGT content and we will offer compelling localized content packages at launch. We believe there are expansive market opportunities for the Cobalt 27 cabinet in Romania and beyond.”
At EAE Romania, IGT will showcase the Cobalt 27 with the USwitch multi-game bundle. The player-friendly and highly intuitive USwitch solution enables operators in Romania to offer a variety of IGT’s high-performing titles on a single cabinet. The product menu also clusters games with similar play mechanics and styles so players are more apt to discover and enjoy games that suit their individual gameplay preferences. Over the last two years, IGT has released multiple versions of the USwitch solution, with each multi-game bundle reflecting the increasing strength of IGT’s global core video portfolio. For example, operators might have the option of offering IGT’s chart-topping games such as Scarab, Solar Disk and Ocean Magic on a single cabinet.
“My product development team leverages tremendous volumes of player insight data to determine which titles are best-suited for the local market opportunities,” added Bluemel.
The USwitch content bundle is just the first of many content options that IGT will offer on the Cobalt cabinet. Because IGT leverages the highly versatile Ascent game development platform, IGT can port player-favorite titles across multiple hardware solutions and can provide its customers with flexibility in terms of how and where they’d like to showcase IGT content.
The Cobalt 27 will join IGT’s family of high-performing video cabinets, such as the CrystalSlant cabinet. Regarded by many as one of the most elite dual-screened cabinets in its class, and with market penetration supporting this notion, the CrystalSlant cabinet and its robust game library entertains players in all major gaming regions across Europe, the U.S., Latin America, Asia and Australia. IGT celebrates similar success stories with the dual-screened CrystalDual 27.
At EAE Romania, IGT will also demonstrate Blazin’ Flames, the Company’s three-level bolt-on progressive that can transform core video titles to jackpot-paying progressives. To learn more about the Cobalt 27 cabinet and other gaming innovations from IGT, visit IGT.com.
