LAS VEGAS, April 28, 2015 — Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or “the Company”) today announced that Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, the Caribbean’s newest and largest casino resort, has selected a host of Scientific Games solutions in systems, games, table products, and interactive to drive entertainment, help transform customer service, increase operating efficiency, and provide end-to-end casino and slot-management solutions.
Baha Mar, the $3.5 billion resort in The Bahamas, conducted an extensive evaluation and competitive bidding process before choosing a broad array of Scientific Games’ Bally, Shuffle Master, WMS and Scientific Games Interactive products for its new 100,000-square-foot Las Vegas-style Baha Mar Casino & Hotel.
“Scientific Games is an important technology partner to our casino resort, helping us accelerate the services for our gaming operations that will enable us to run our business efficiently while delivering an engaging customer experience,” said Paul V. Pusateri, Chief Operating Officer of Baha Mar.
Scientific Games President and Chief Executive Officer Gavin Isaacs said, “Our agreement with Baha Mar Casino & Hotel truly showcases our ability to provide an end-to-end gaming experience across an entire casino resort enterprise. Baha Mar is leveraging a variety of Scientific Games’ transformational solutions across a diverse product lines and brands – gaming machines, table-game products, systems, mobile and online – to deliver a truly unique and highly engaging gaming experience to its patrons.”
Working in partnership with Baha Mar, Scientific Games Interactive is breaking new ground by providing the casino the full SG Universe suite, anchored by Scientific Games’ award-winning mobile concierge app. SG Universe is the first solution of its kind to combine the Company’s Play4Fun Network™ ━ a social gaming experience that patrons can enjoy anywhere to play their favorite casino games in an online or mobile free-play environment ━ with on-property real-money mobile wagering and mobile concierge features into a single integrated and casino-branded mobile application.
“We are tremendously excited that Baha Mar will be the first land-based casino to leverage our robust SG Universe product suite,” said Scientific Games Interactive President Jordan Levin. “Among its many benefits, SG Universe features a trailblazing on-property real-money mobile casino highlighted by game content from our Bally, Barcrest, Shuffle Master, and Williams game studios that entertains players on their mobile devices throughout the resort— at the pool, in their hotel room, at the spa, or having dinner— and rewards them in the same way they get rewarded for playing games on the casino floor. SG Universe is designed to drive players to the casino while providing additional ways for patrons to enjoy free-play or real-money casino-style entertainment through their personal mobile devices.”
