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 $195 million, 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 honored to be Tioga's partner of choice as they significantly grow and expand their enterprise."
Tioga Downs Senior Vice President of Operations Jeff Townsend said, "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."
Scientific Games will provide a full casino-management systems solution, including:
- iVIEW® Display Manager ("DM") on-device messaging technology to excite and engage players on the casino floor.
- Elite Bonusing Suite™, which features 12 turn-key applications for rewarding players including DM Tournaments, Dynamic Random Bonusing, Flex Rewards, U-Spin® Bonusing and Virtual Racing.
- Scientific Games' robust Bally Business Intelligence application with Campaign Management, Reporting Dashboard and Tableau interactive data visualization.
- CoolSign® multi-media communication and marketing tool.
- TableView real-time table management system to automate the table-rating process and reward table players just like slot players.
Thanks to its leading slot gaming solutions, Scientific Games was awarded over 40 percent of the slot floor expansion with an agreement for 395 new slot games at the property. Among the numerous new Bally and WMS® games slated to debut on Tioga Downs' expanded casino floor are 88 Fortunes®, Bier Haus®, Ca$h Wheel® Featuring Quick Hit®, Hot Shot Progressive® Blazing 7s®, Kronos®, Quick Hit Platinum Plus™ Triple Blazing 7s®, and Zeus®. Scientific Games' slot content will be featured on a number of the Company's most popular slot cabinets including the new Scientific Games TwinStar™ platform which supports Bally, Shuffle Master and WMS game content.
From its table products portfolio, Scientific Games will provide a number of advanced utility products including Fusion Auto Roulette, MD3®, i-Deal Plus™, Chip Star®, iShoe Auto®, iScore Plus®, and Deck Mate® 2 along with the Company's most exciting table products such as Let It Ride Bonus®, Mississippi Stud®, Four Card Poker®, Ultimate Texas Hold'em® Bonus, and Fortune Pai Gow Poker®. Tioga Downs is also adding one of Scientific Games' most popular electronic table systems to its array of casino floor entertainment – Fusion Auto Roulette.
Tioga Downs is expanding its existing facility, which features video lottery terminals ("VLT"), restaurants and bars next to the harness racing track. The first phase of the expansion, slated to open in the next few months, includes replacing the current VLTs with slot machines and increasing the total number to 946; adding table games and a poker room; and opening two new restaurants. Future plans include a 161-room hotel, spa, event center, 12,000-seat outdoor concert venue and outdoor pool and waterslide.
