Wow, it’s hard to believe that 2018 is almost over. We wanted to take this time to reflect on another great year in the gaming industry and start gearing up for an even better 2019. Throughout the year we have strived to disrupt market trends with innovative products whilst maintaining our commitment to sustainable product development across all markets and player experiences.
Over the course of 2018, we have stayed at the forefront of trends with the rollout of Dragon Link across Australia, supporting the growth of the Hold ‘N’ Spin segment. Dragon Link features the same player experience that is popular amongst Lightning Link players with a few extra surprises. Dragon Link includes the famous Hold ‘N’ Spin feature, scalable bonus prizes and player selectable multi denomination including all new $1 and $2 denominations (*NSW only). We are humbled by the strong adoption rates of Dragon Link by customers across Australia and New Zealand venues.
If there’s one thing we can be certain of it’s that the hospitality and gaming industry requires consistent innovation to remain relevant. We were beyond excited to release Welcome to Fantastic Jackpots to Queensland earlier in the year. This product is a great example of how we have innovated on what’s popular right now. Entertain a variety of players with player selectable multi denomination, scalable bonus prizes and cash on reels. Welcome to Fantastic Jackpots offers players the ability to win up to 250x their bet on a scatter. We look forward to rolling out the standalone progressive Welcome to Fantastic Jackpots next year.
Supporting our brands is important to us and that’s why we launched the brand extension, Player’s Choice Opal Edition to NSW this year. This multi game pack gives operators more choice than ever before! Featuring a mix of classic player favourites and new exciting content, there is something for everyone. Stay tuned for the roll out of Player’s Choice Opal Edition to other Australian markets next year and all new Player’s Choice brand extensions.
This year we made a Mighty impact with the release of Mighty Coins across Australia. Mighty Coins launched with two standalone progressive titles and was our newest addition to address the Hold ‘N’ Spin segment with an exciting twist. This product innovates on the traditional Hold ‘N’ Spin feature and offers 3 unique venue configurable denomination packs to choose from. Keep an eye out for the release of follow up titles, Red Blade & Green Blade, being released in 2019.
In the year ahead, we will be releasing a portfolio of games that support various player experiences and cabinet configurations. We are more driven than ever to deliver strong performing content solutions to all markets whilst maintaining strong performance across our existing fleet. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support in 2018 and wish you a safe and happy festive season. We look forward to reconnecting with you in the New Year.
