Station Properties Trialing IGT Universal Slant

THE LARGER PROPERTIES at Station Casinos each have 10 IGT Universal Slant units on trial.

The new units feature dual 23-inch LCD displays, and are capable of supporting reels, video reels or multigame poker and keno.

Initial results have been very positive.

Ask our slot ambassadors to show you where the new units are on the floor.

Which do you prefer? Upright machines, slant screens or bartop unit?

‘Bonus Box’ Exclusive at Red Rock

WE ARE CONDUCTING the Nevada Field Trial for “Bonus Box,” a new product from Gaming Support.

Bonus Box is a cylinder that attaches to an existing slot machine and operates on its own Mystery Bonus. Currently we have $500 cash in each box. When the
bonus hits, the guest reaches up and takes the prize!

We can put anything in the box— iPhones, gift cards, etc. We will evaluate performance once the trial concludes and share more information.

What do you think? $500 is pretty good! What else should we put in the Bonus Box?
