International Game Technology has struck an impressive slot machine and systems deal to install more than 500 IGT slot machines and sbX Floor Manager at the highly anticipated new Baha Mar in Nassau, The Bahamas.
Slated to open in March 2015, Baha Mar will welcome guests with a slot floor comprised of nearly 50 per cent IGT games and a deployment of IGT’s results-driven casino management system, sbX Floor Manager.
Dubbed “The New Riviera,” Baha Mar’s casino is projected to rival the best gaming destinations in Las Vegas, Macau and Monte Carlo. The 100,000 square-foot gaming mecca will include a vast array of gaming experiences, ranging from the millionaire-making title Wheel of Fortune to IGT’s dazzling new S3000 spinning reel cabinet.
“We’re thrilled to bring so many IGT games in combination with our innovative systems to such an esteemed casino project,” said Tim Shortall, IGT VP of Eastern Region Sales. “IGT’s decades of leadership in the global marketplace give us the tools and expertise needed to deliver a diverse casino portfolio that will appeal to Baha Mar’s international audience. Through the deployment of sbX Floor Manager, Baha Mar can further refine and optimize its casino floor and deliver on its promise of the most remarkable casino in the Caribbean.”
“Baha Mar will completely redefine gaming entertainment in the Caribbean,” said Paul Pusateri, Baha Mar Chief Operating Officer. “We’re building a world-class gaming destination, and it’s imperative that we work with partners who share our same vision and commitment to excellence. IGT’s depth of gaming knowledge and breadth of portfolio are the best in the industry and together, we’re creating the ultimate casino experience.”
