Multiple promotional campaigns with unique coupons can be printed from every Epic printer on the floor and straight into the player’s hand.

Zitro has just presented at the tenth edition of the Expo Andalusian Gaming Congress its range of GLARE products with the new video slots that, together with the company’s new Video Bingo, Dragon Win, have captured the attention of the entire audience.

Dragon Win is the new video bingo from Zitro in which the player can win free games, more lamps, or faster access to the Dragon Lamp Progressive Bonus just by activating the new Dragon Lamp Win button. In addition, the new Final Dragon feature guarantees a safe prize that will be to the players’ satisfaction.

In the video slot segment, Zitro presented its innovative range of GLARE products for the Andalusian halls with a special presence of the Wheel of Legends multigame that, thanks to its spectacular graphics, and presented on the Altius Glare premium cabinet, attracted the attention of all the attendees. On the Allure Glare cabinet with its three screens, the multigame Bashiba Egyptian has captivated the Andalusian operators and 5 to Win, the multigame presented on the Fusion Glare cabinet has completed the offer shown by Zitro for salons and bingos.

In the Casinos product line, Zitro has shown in Torremolinos, Bashiba Link and Double Link, two multigame presented on the exclusive Illusion Glare cabinet, which come to complete the offer of games for this Andalusian market segment. In addition, the exclusive Illusion Glare cabinet for Spanish casinos, with its curved touch screen, allows a perfect gaming experience.

As Johnny Ortiz, Founder of Zitro, has valued, “it has been a pleasure to be able to share with clients and operators this wonderful time in Torremolinos. I am very grateful for the interest shown in our gaming offer and we are sure that we will move forward together to strengthen the sector in Andalusia”.

Vicente Fernández, commercial director of Zitro, wanted to highlight “our gratitude to our customers for the affection with which they always welcome our offer, led by our GLARE Family products, and for the great reception that our new Video Bingo has had. We also congratulate the Organization for the success achieved in a very special edition, the tenth, and we are very proud to have been able to accompany them since day one”.

The Arkansas Racing Commission today approved a proposal from the Saracen Casino in Pine Bluff for a system that links gambling machines in Arkansas to machines in other states and thus creates a potential for large jackpots, sometimes as high as six or seven figures.


The machine vendor IGT would oversee the so-called wide area progressive system. Other casinos in Arkansas would be able to take advantage of this arrangement as well. Rules already allowed such linkage, but Saracen was the first to ask to add the feature.


Maximum bets are necessary to qualify for the biggest jackpots and the action gets heavy, an IGT spokesman said, when the jackpot increases, much as with the Powerball lottery game.


The progressive jackpots are available on a variety of games, including the popular Wheel of Fortune game.
