Scientific Games launches next-generation GM Atlas progressive system
Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) ("Scientific
Games" or the “Company") recently announced the launch of GM Atlas, a brand new table progressive operating system. GM Atlas succeeds the Company’s earlier progressive systems, Game Manager 1 and Game Manager 2, and ties together all of the best features from these previous platforms.
GM Atlas, Scientific Games’ latest progressive operating system, provides operators with the flexibility to configure Must-Hit-By prizes, and the option to customize table signs to easily promote table game jackpot meters property-wide. This system features a convenient and easyto-use dashboard, one-click navigation to various reports and other helpful tools, and a robust offering of live information. The GM Atlas enhanced progressive system also includes the upgraded NXS Command® II table game hardware, which is compatible with many generations of bet devices.
“You see a lot of companies today dabbling in the world of progressive jackpots for table games,” said Roger Snow, Senior Vice President at Scientific Games. “But we’ve been at this for a long time, working side by side with our customers to give their customers—the players—the features they want. And GM Atlas is the latest and greatest example of that approach to doing business. There’s beautiful signage, easy-to-use hardware and behind it all, a method to take that one wager and drive several jackpots simultaneously. It’s one heck of a product.”
Soboba Casino Resort in southern California was the first casino to upgrade to GM Atlas, across nine table games. The upgraded table progressives include EZ Baccarat®, Fortune Pai Gow Poker®, and Multi Game Link (Ultimate Texas Hold’em® and Three Card Poker). Soboba is utilizing the best features from previous Scientific Games table progressive systems, including dual hot spots, single coin sensor, and the must-hit-by progressive. Although GM Atlas offers support for several progressive levels, Soboba will be opening with a single level progressive with mystery to support high paying jackpots as well as player bonusing.
“We are very excited to be the first casino to roll out the new GM Atlas progressive system. It has been a hit with the customers and gives them the opportunity for more frequent paybacks, including the must-hit-by jackpot,” said Stewart Madden, Director of Table Games at Soboba Casino Resort. “We have also seen an increase in revenue as the player participation has grown, which is easy to track with the improved automated reports.”
