The Spielbanken Bayern group in Germany has become the first customer to sign a deal with GTech and Spielo for several Sphinx 3D machines, which will be placed in each of its nine casinos.
The deal was completed at ICE Totally Gaming, in London in February.
Sphinx 3D is the first title in GTech’s new Spielo True 3D product line, which uses a glasses-free 3D display designed exclusively for GTech for the gaming industry. It uses a unique, patented autostereoscopic technology with integrated eye-tracking to make images jump off the screen or stretch into infinity in high resolution. Sphinx 3D runs on the new Axxis cabinet, which is designed to maximizse player comfort, create a sense of personal space, and immerse the player in the game.
“We are extremely happy that the first signed deal at ICE for Sphinx 3D was with Spielbanken Bayern, with whom we have a very long-standing and close relationship. This proves again that they are committed to offering their players the latest innovations and best possible entertainment. We are grateful for their continued trust in our products,” said Athanasios (Sakis) Isaakidis, GTech Senior Director and General Manager, EMEA Casino.
Josef Müller, Vice President Staatliche Lotterieverwaltung Bayern, said: “Sphinx 3D is an amazing product and the True3D technology is unbelievable. It did not take us long to decide that this is a product we just have to offer our players. We cannot wait for the delivery when Sphinx 3D will be installed in all of our nine Spielbanken Bayern locations.”
The longstanding and solid relationship between Spielbanken Bayern and GTech has seen numerous projects come to life over the years. Apart from offering Bavarian players Spielo core and multigames, Spielbanken Bayern has deployed customised Wide Area Progressives as well. In addition, Spielbanken Bayern has used GTech´s Galaxis casino systems solution since 2000, and in 2009 the chip cash cashless solution was installed on more than 1,100 machines group-wide.
