No product available today gives operators more flexibility, choice and return on investment, or offers the true 3D game play today's player has embraced, than IGT DynamiX™. IGT DynamiX™ is a bundle of IGT's most innovative technologies (3D games, MLD®, AVP®, multi-game, dynamic buttons and the Service Window). The IGT DynamiX™ solution runs any 3-, 4- and 5-spinning reel and video conversions on the same box, letting players decide what they want to play with one onscreen touch.
The revolutionary new MegaJackpots® Center Stage Series platform offers unlimited content options from the premiere gaming product line in the industry. When new games are released, content can be simply downloaded to the platform – without new cabinets or hardware. The Wheel of Fortune® Experience™ in 3D and American Idol® are the first games to be launched on the new platform. The Center Stage Series comes in two options: the MJ 103 Series (103-inch overhead) and the MJ 70 Series (70-inch overhead). The overhead monitors are flanked by two top-of-the-line LCD monitors, and are surrounded by individual player stations, each with its own MEGAfx Surround Chair to enhance the experience.
IGT's new Reel Edge™ product has re-invented spinning-reel gaming yet again, but as a skill-based, spinning-reel game. For the first time, spinning-reel players can stop the reels in an attempt to create wins with Reel Edge™.
