Scientific Games has announced that its casino management system has gone live with the first of 28 casinos, as part of a new deal with the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC)
The “comprehensive agreement” will see the company install its SDS slot accounting and player tracking system, an integrated system that monitors slot machines, other gaming devices and player gaming activity at a casino.
In addition, Scientific Games’ innovative iVIEW 4 and iVIEW DM on-device messaging and player interface technology are to also be included as part of the partnership.
Cath Burns, Senior Vice President of Gaming Systems at Scientific Games, commented: “We are proud that our systems solutions were able to accommodate the particular requirements the AGLC (Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission) had in administering the gaming aspect of its 28 casinos, while allowing the casino operators to maintain a certain level of autonomy in managing their individual properties.
“We are excited to have our casino management system implemented throughout the Alberta province and we look forward to our continued partnership with the AGLC.”
The agreement with the AGLC has seen the Scientific Games system first installed into the Grand Villa Casino in Edmonton, before being rolled out across all 28 of the independently operated casinos throughout the Canadian province.
The AGLC, the commercial enterprise that oversees the gaming and liquor industries in Alberta, licenses and regulates all of these properties, owning and maintaining the over 14,000 slot and 6,000 VLT machines in the process.
Through this link up, Scientific Games’ casino management systems will eventually manage all of the slot games in the region.
Niaz Nejad, Chief Operating Officer of the AGLC, added: “Given the unique requirements of the AGLC and its various casino properties, we needed a system that could support the AGLC’s multiple-service provider environment. “We believe that Scientific Games’ elite casino management system will provide us with the necessary support, and we look forward to seeing results.”
