"We selected the IGT Cloud as we believe that IGT is as forward-thinking as we are", said Simon Beacham, head of electronic gaming at Grosvenor Casinos. "We are dedicated to providing our players with the best gaming experiences possible. A new solution will empower us to make informed decisions regarding content management deployment."

Grosvenor will be able to utilize IGT Cloud features both locally and centrally, thus enabling timely decisions regarding optimal game mixes, while the power of the analytical tools will help leverage significant insight into product performance.

The IGT Cloud provides Rank with the included benefit of instant access to the entire IGT UK AVP game theme library. Additionally, the Cloud can be implemented across the proposed sites without Grosvenor needing to make any significant infrastructure investments.

"Our partnership with Grosvenor is a great step in our developing Cloud business," said Sabby Gill, regional vice president for EMEA and LATAM at IGT. "We look forward to extending our relationship with them further as we feel they are a great representative of what the Cloud can achieve."

The initial launch includes a total of 94 AVP's connected, with plans to extend the Cloud offering to other Grosvenor sites later in the year.
