US – GTECH’s Sphinx 3D debuts across USBy Lewis - 18 July 2014
Following its initial installation in Las Vegas, Nevada, the nationwide roll-out of GTECH’s SPHINX 3D game has begun. Properties in Connecticut, including Foxwoods Resort Casino, as well as California, North Dakota and Florida have installed the product, and more will follow in Idaho, Minnesota and Iowa. Initial performance and player feedback gathered at promotional events has been exceptional.
“Players are amazed when they see the 3D effects for the first time,” said Foxwoods Resort Casino Executive Director of Slot Operations Angelo Avallone. “It keeps them engaged and eager to get to more bonus rounds, and they tell their friends and other players to check out this truly amazing game.”
SPHINX 3D is the first title in the new True3D product line, which uses patented, award- winning 3D display technology exclusively designed for GTECH. The SPHINX 3D game runs on the AXXIS cabinet, which is designed to create a sense of personal space and immerse the player in the game.
“Based on feedback from properties that already have the product on their floor, players are immensely enjoying the unique SPHINX 3D game experience,” said Victor Duarte, GTECH Sr. Vice President, Gaming and Content, and Sr. Vice President, North American Commercial Gaming.
“Innovation is the backbone of our company’s success, and we are pleased to see our truly unique and innovative SPHINX 3D product becoming a huge hit with players.”
The SPHINX 3D game was recently named the most highly anticipated premium game by a wide margin for three consecutive quarters in casino industry surveys. It has also won three industry awards since it was unveiled at G2E in September 2013.
