AGLC will also receive several iLINK Ultras, IGT's latest retailer site controller that has a separate point-of-sale device and logic box for increased flexibility, and an updated user interface with improved features for the retailer.
IGT's INTELLIGEN systems are deployed worldwide connecting a wide range of VLTs in a variety of gaming environments. The software is built on more than 25 years of central system experience and offers stable, secure command and control capabilities. It supports the Gaming Standards Association's Game to System® (G2S) standard protocol, which enables an enhanced player user interface, improved responsible gaming features, exciting multi-level mystery jackpots (Vault Breaker®) and additional player-centric functionality.
In addition to VLTs and the INTELLIGEN central system, IGT also provides AGLC with commercial casino cabinets and games as well as IGT PlayDigital PlayCasino games. AGLC has been an IGT customer since 2003.
