LONDON, May 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE: IGT) today announced that the Company won the "Diverse and Inclusive Team of the Year" award at the 10th annual Women in Gaming Diversity Awards, held this month in London.

Shark Trap Gaming & Security Systems, LLC, has submitted the first of its “super shufflers” to Gaming Laboratories International (GLI).  GLI will be testing Shark Trap’s Novelty-Game Shuffler, which is essentially identical to Shark Trap’s Poker Shuffler and 1-2 Deck Blackjack Shuffler other than a few minor design/operational features.

GLI’s primary objective will be to evaluate the ST shuffler for randomness.  We’re confident that the shufflers will pass GLI’s entire suite of tests because the ST shufflers are the first casino shufflers to incorporate 'true random number technology' (TRNG) instead of the industry standard, 'pseudo random number technology' (PRNG).  The advantage of a TRNG is that each seed for each random number is generated by physical phenomenon (hardware), resulting in true randomness.  The seeds for PRNGs are arithmetic-generated via software and are therefore deterministic. 

We will announce the results as soon as GLI completes the certification process.  

We are also busy completing the early design work for Shark Trap’s Round-to-Round Multi-deck Shuffler and its ground-breaking Baccarat and Punto Banco Security Platform, which offers unequaled game protection while eliminating the need for preshuffled cards!

More announcements are forthcoming as we continue our quest to offer Shark Trap’s line of “super shufflers” to an eagerly-awaiting industry.

Thanks for your patience . . . in terms of productivity, card costs, game protection, and innovation, I promise the wait will be worth it!

London & Dublin - May 28, 2019: GAN plc (“GAN” or the “Company”), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gaming software, services and online gaming content in the United States, welcomes the signing and legalization of internet sports betting in Tennessee, allowing state-wide sports wagering exclusively via mobile and internet. Tennessee is the 12th State to legalize sports wagering in the US and the fourth to do so this year. Following the launch, 16% of the total US population will be able to place sports wagers online.

The Tennessee legislature passed a bill in the first week of May permitting online sports betting only on a State-wide basis, expected to commence on July 1st. The bill has now moved to the Governor, who has allowed the bill to become law without his signature. The law came into effect on May 25th.

There are no physical casino locations in the State of Tennessee. However, with an estimated population of 6.8 million the legalization of online sports wagering is expected to be material to GAN’s business, as the Company anticipates existing clients to extend their online GAN-supported operations into the State of Tennessee in 2019.

Las Vegas, May 22, 2019: Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or “the Company”) and Big Time Gaming (BTG) have partnered to combine the massively popular Megaways™ mechanic with the Company’s growing portfolio of games content. Making full use of the mechanic, Scientific Games has launched MedusaÒ Megaways, a title that extends on their popular Medusa series of games and integrates Megaways to enhance the player experience.

Megaways is a random reel modifier system that sees any given spin produce a different number of symbols across the reels, allowing players to experience endless possible game scenarios with every spin. The feature fuels a next-level player experience with randomly shifting symbol sets that allow for virtually endless payline combinations. The dynamic feature keeps players engaged with a fresh twist on traditional slot game reel arrays.

Medusa Megaways launched on SG Digital’s OGS Network April 24 and has been among the Company’s top-performing games since release. The game offers five in-game bonus features, including an attractive Replay feature that gives players the choice to either replay Free Games or collect their initial prize. The Company will also release Raging RhinoÒ Megaways in June and Rainbow Riches™ Megaways in July, putting a new spin on two player-favorite slot themes.

Dylan Slaney, SVP Casino at SG Digital, said: “This deal is a great reflection of our truly open platform, Open Gaming System (OGS), and our long-standing relationship with Big Time Gaming. We are thrilled to license Megaways™-- making this feature available on Medusa Megaways and many more titles to come will fuel future success for SG Digital and BTG. This is a huge deal for both parties, and we are really excited to see how Medusa Megaways is received by casino managers and players alike.”

Nik Robinson, Big Time Gaming CEO, said: “We have a great relationship in place with Scientific Games’ Digital group, so licensing Megaways was a natural extension of our long-term plans to bring Megaways to more players than ever.”

Bet by Bet System

The Bet-by-Bet application is a powerful new tool that tracks all the individual bets wagered at the baccarat games. Designed for the VIP table games market, it provides a fluid solution for VIP hosts to easily track each bet in a mobile application that feeds baccarat results directly from table devices, leveraging the power of the Shufflink® and TableView™ table management systems.

TableView Table Management Solution

TableView is an innovative table management solution that allows casinos to replace their existing manual rating process with the ease and simplicity of electronic automation. Casinos can create an almost paperless environment in the pit and eliminate the delay of manually entering and updating ratings into the casino management system. TableView is perfectly placed to enable operators to drive new innovations such as real time table data collection and anonymous tracking technologies.

Shufflink System

Shufflink creates a network and user interface that collects real time data from utility products, including shufflers, chippers, and related table peripherals for table performance analysis and player ratings. This advanced product not only provides new metrics and reports to significantly enhance a pit operation's ability to quickly identify and forecast improvement opportunities and operating constraints, but a powerful middleware data bus enabling vital live data flow into a casino data ecosystem that can be leveraged for system integrations for surveillance, security, and other applications.

iVIEW® Web Content Management

The iVIEW 4 web-based content management solution allows for drag-and-drop content design within an exclusive web interface to create new iVIEW content and publish it to the casino floor. With analytics, rules, and scheduling features, the iVIEW 4 empowers a new level of player engagement for casino marketers.
