Following its success in the United States, Scientific Games has installed its first two Tournaments Express systems in the European market at Pasino Saint Amand les Eaux in Saint-Amand-les-Eaux, France and Casino Espinho in Espinho, Portugal.
These are the first of four installations scheduled in Europe over the next few months. Upcoming launch locations include Pasino Le Lyon Vert and Pasino La Grande Motte in France.
Pasino Saint Amand les Eaux Director Karen Pamart said, “We are very excited to be the first installation of this product in the European market. Tournaments Express has already seen great success in the United States, and to be able to introduce it into a mature market such as France demonstrates the versatility and value it can add to a casino. We look forward to sharing the many benefits Tournaments Express can bring to our slot players.”
Pasino Saint Amand les Eaux is currently using Tournaments Express on a bank of eight WMS® games to engage their players and create excitement on the casino floor through instant tournaments that offer the potential for players to take home large tournament prizes. Taking advantage of Tournaments Express’ flexibility, Pasino Saint Amand les Eaux plans to use a new slot theme each month for tournament play, including Hot Shot, Quick Hit, and poker themes.
With Tournaments Express, casinos can turn just about any iVIEW Display Manager-equipped slot machine on their floor – no matter its manufacturer or the casino or slot-management system used – into thrilling tournament machines within moments. As soon as the tournament ends, games can easily be switched back into revenue-generating mode for the ultimate in versatility and the best use of a casino’s floor space.
Using a PC or tablet, Tournaments Express enables casinos to quickly change more than 100 different slot cabinets from more than 20 different manufacturers into tournament games. Tournament types include free play, invite-only, buy-in, multi-round, group-start sessions and more.
