Attendees of the Gaming Technology Summit in Las Vegas last week selected Bally Technologies’ Cash Spin slot machine for the “Attendee Choice” award in Casino Journal’s 2009 “Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products” awards competition.
Cash Spin was also one of the top three award winners out of 21 finalists, winning the Silver Award.
Cash Spin, with its U-Spin gesture-control technology, has been on a winning streak, taking home the “Best Slot Product” in the Gaming & Technology Awards at G2E last November; a 2010 Casino Enterprise Management Slot Floor Technology Award; and now two of the top awards in the “Most Innovative Gaming Technology” competition.
“We knew Cash Spin was special from the moment we saw the first prototype, and since its launch in April we have not been disappointed,” said Gavin Isaacs, Bally’s chief operating officer. “We have been installing Cash Spin nationwide at a pace that exceeds Hot Shot Progressive, which until Cash Spin had been our most successful game. And Cash Spin is delivering outstanding performance for gaming operators, attaining more than three times house average.”
Cash Spin is a groundbreaking gaming device that features proprietary U-Spin gesture-control technology that enables players to spin a virtual wheel on the game’s display just as if it were an actual physical spinning wheel.
The game, on Bally’s highly successful ALPHA Elite V32 slot platform, also features Bally’s Interactive Reels (iReels), allowing the game to be played both as a video and as a reel-spinner at the same time.
“Finally, an adaptation of touch screen and interactive reels, along with a wheel – what’s not to like?” said Slot Floor Technology judge Chuck Hickey, vice president of slot operations at Barona Resort & Casino.
