Global gaming firm Light & Wonder unveiled a range of new products at Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas on Tuesday which it says address shifts in player behavior.
The new products include Light & Wonder’s newest slot cabinet Cosmic, a sustainable solution for operators called The Card Recycler and the live casino experience, Light & Wonder LIVE DEALER by Authentic Gaming.
“Light & Wonder’s new products and innovations presented at G2E address the shift in player behavior,” the company said.
“The movement in gameplay to immersive and connected offerings underscores the company’s focus on building great games that the world wants to play across multiple platforms – land-based casinos, online and mobile – in both real-money and free-to-play social gaming markets.”
Slot cabinet Cosmic is described as offering players an immersive experience with revolutionary fiber-optic lighting and advanced animations. The cabinet’s innovative contour design features a 27” top monitor display that flows seamlessly into the player panel and includes the brightest bash buttons ever developed by the company.
Meanwhile its next generation of electronic table games give players a live connection to the internet, aiming to being exciting casino experiences across any device. Light & Wonder LIVE DEALER by Authentic Gaming utilizes a bespoke studio environment to provide a selection of shared live tables available to all operators, with graphical elements, UIs and side bets that can all be customized to each operator’s brand and players.
The Card Recycler is a smart utility that analyzes used cards for defects while simultaneously discarding damaged cards and recycling reusable cards into complete, casino-standard decks. This sustainable solution enables casino operators to minimize labor costs, cut annual card costs, reduce carbon footprint and maximize card supply.
Newly appointed CEO of Light & Wonder, Matt Wilson, said, “Over the past seven months, Light & Wonder has transformed from a diversified business to a company focused solely on cross-platform gaming and enabling technologies.
“The new products we announced today will enable us to continue to lead the way. By investing in next-level experiences, content, technology, systems, hit studios and platforms that redefine gaming, we remain committed to delivering great games the world wants to play.”
