LAS VEGAS, Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) today announced the installation of its sbX™ system at Cypress Bayou Casino in Charenton, La.

"This seamless install of sbX™ at Cypress Bayou Casino is one more example of the continued momentum of our server-based solutions with casino operators around the world," said Richard Yim, IGT vice president of Systems products. "With the ability to create a truly dynamic floor based on their players' favorite games, casinos like Cypress Bayou are able to develop unique and differentiated entertainment experiences like never before."

Cypress Bayou Casino has access to more than 300 games in the IGT Game Library, with new games released monthly.

Additional sbX™ applications include IGT Media Manager. This application allows Cypress Bayou to instantly refresh media displays with customizable marketing messages that target the right players at the right time for differentiated player experiences.

"We are already seeing the benefit of using sbX™," said Tony Rohrer, Cypress Bayou executive director of Gaming Operations. "Deploying Media Manager in a newer area of our floor has increased traffic to an area that had previously been a challenge to populate. We are continuing to develop individualized content to further enhance the customer experience."
