METHUEN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--At Global Gaming Expo 2013 (September 2013, Las Vegas, NV), the 2014
Gaming & Technology Award for “Best Slot Product”, sponsored by Global
Gaming Business magazine, was shared by Bally Technologies, GTECH
and IGT for the most innovative slot games and machines on display. With
on-screen interactivity a common thread among this year’s winning games,
these leading game manufacturers used innovative 3M touch solutions to
help enhance their award-winning products.
Bally Technologies’ Pro Series™ Wave™ Cabinet with its sleek 40”
curved projected capacitive (3M PCT) multi-touch touchscreen
(developed for Bally by 3M) is creating a new category of slot game
style. The large concave touch display provides players with a vast,
uninterrupted interactive surface for immersive slot and bonus round
play. This award-winning cabinet also includes Bally’s revolutionary
iDeck™ multi-touch player interface provided by 3M. Both touch
solutions are examples of how 3M touch innovation helps support
Bally’s award-winning product development.
SPIELO’s Sphinx 3D™ by GTECH was honored for technical innovation by
creating a first-of-its-kind glasses-free 3D experience for slot
players. By matching a 23” 3M projected capacitive (3M PCT)
multi-touch touchscreen, customized to assist with the game’s
eye-tracking capability, with an exclusively-designed SeeFront
glasses-free 3D display, GTECH has broken new ground in slot
IGT’s James Cameron’s AVATAR™ Video Slot Series with “gripping
content, captivating graphics and incredible innovation” was enhanced
for play by 3M’s 42” surface capacitive touchscreen. The premium
optics and touch reliability of 3M’s largest surface capacitive (3M
SCT) touchscreen (developed for IGT) helped them impress show judges
and attendees with bright and bold large-area game play.
