US – Scientific to supply 40 per cent of Tioga Downs’ slot floorBy Phil - 20 September 2016
Scientific Games has signed a new agreement with Tioga Downs Casino & Resort to provide a host of games, systems and table products to the Nichols, New York casino as it begins its transition to a Class 3 commercial casino and resort.
After a competitive bidding process, Scientific Games was awarded a significant portion of Tioga Downs’ expansion representing a slot floor share of more than 40 per cent, including 395 slot games and table products for the casino pit, as well as an extensive casino systems suite anchored by the SDS and CMP slot-accounting and player-tracking system.
This new agreement significantly expands Scientific Games’ partnership with the southern New York racino following the New York State Gaming Commission’s unanimous vote to award Tioga Downs a full gaming license along with approval to upgrade to a $195m, full-scale gaming resort.
Derik Mooberry, Scientific Games’ Group Chief Executive, Gaming, said: “We are the only supplier in the industry that can provide Tioga Downs with a complete portfolio of products for its casino expansion. With our extensive new product solutions at Tioga Downs, we will help the property execute on its player engagement, promotions and rewards program goals. We are honoured to be Tioga’s partner of choice as they significantly grow and expand their enterprise.”
Tioga Downs Senior Vice President of Operations Jeff Townsend, added: “The decision to partner with Scientific Games for such a large portion of our casino expansion was driven by our commitment to offer our loyal patrons the most engaging and entertaining experience driven by the most robust and secure systems. With such an expansive breadth of product offerings, Scientific Games is able to offer integrated solutions to engage and excite our players across the casino floor.”
