After earlier this month agreeing a 13-year deal to supply the Florida Lottery with selection of solutions and services, gaming technology innovator International Game Technology (IGT) has now inked an agreement with the soon-to-open Lucky Dragon Hotel And Casino.

London-based IGT stated that it has arranged to provide the Lucky Dragon Hotel And Casino, which is scheduled to open on 2.5 acres of land just off the Las Vegas Strip on December 3, with its Advantage casino marketing, player communication and floor optimization system complete with floor, table and media manager applications.

“By securing this agreement with the Lucky Dragon Hotel And Casino, we’re building on IGT’s leadership in casino management systems innovation,” said Nick Khin, North America Gaming And Interactive Sales Senior Vice-President for IGT. “Whenever there is a new casino opening on the Las Vegas Strip, competition is fierce for games and systems placement. By providing unique systems capabilities and best-in-class game content, we can help Lucky Dragon Hotel And Casino differentiate itself among players as the authentic Asian gaming experience provider.”

Being billed as the first resort casino in Las Vegas to offer an authentic Asian lifestyle experience, the Lucky Dragon Hotel And Casino will moreover utilize six IGT bonusing applications including the developer’s Lucky Chip, which will bring progressive bonus capabilities to table games on the Las Vegas Strip for the first time.

IGT declared that the Lucky Dragon Hotel And Casino will additionally be the first such venue in North America to offer rebates and commissions to VIP table game players based on a concept that is already popular in the Asian gaming market. This is due to be enhanced by the innovator’s SystemWatch, which provides remote around-the-clock system monitoring for performance optimization and reduced down time.

Finally, IGT proclaimed that will have “the leading floor share” at the new Lucky Dragon Hotel And Casino incorporating a selection of twelve Dynasty electronic table games to offer players “the excitement of baccarat and roulette”.

“IGT casino management systems offer us the innovation that we need to bring a carefully curated [and] authentic Asian experience to the Las Vegas Strip,” said Dave Jacoby, Chief Operating Officer for the Lucky Dragon Hotel And Casino. “With features such as the Lucky Chip bonus and the only rebates and commissions offering in North America, IGT has helped us differentiate the Lucky Dragon Hotel And Casino as Las Vegas’ premier Asian gaming provider.”
