WMS Gaming’s Gamefield xD gaming machine, equipped with the newest and most powerful WMS operating system, was recently approved by Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) for use in markets supported by GLI, including Native American tribal casinos and various Midwestern riverboat casino markets.
The Gamefield xD gaming machine engages slot players in a manner never before experienced on the casino floor through a unique field of view driven by spectacular high-definition graphics and enhanced performance characteristics enabled by the Company’s robust new third-generation CPU-NXT3 operating platform.
