American lottery and gaming machines innovator, Scientific Games Corporation, has announced the signing of a deal that is to see six casinos in the small eastern European nation of Slovenia utilize a selection of its Tree of Life slot games linked to one wide-area progressive jackpot.
The Las Vegas-headquartered innovator used an official Monday press release (pdf) to declare that the agreement with local operator, The Hit Group, will involve the linking of some 40 Tree of Wealth games inside casinos in the communities of Staro Selo, Vrtojba, Nova Gorica, Kranjska Gora and Sentilj v Slovenskih Goricah to a single-level progressive jackpot featuring a €50,000 ($55,850) reset value.
Scientific detailed that the Tree of Wealth games are part of its Duo Fu Duo Cai series and will be offered to Slovenian aficionados in the Rich Traditions and Jade Eternity themes. It stated that the titles will be housed in its Pro Wave cabinet and also offer punters the chance to bank one of four local progressive jackpots.
Marco Herrera, EMEA Managing Director and Senior Vice-President for Scientific, explained that video slot players in Slovenia will soon be able to collect any of these jackpots for correctly picking a trio of matching scroll symbols from a pool of 15 during the game’s Tree of Wealth feature. As an added bonus, he proclaimed that those lucky enough to have chosen three Double Luck icons are to be additionally rewarded with the reset value of that particular jackpot.
