IGT Aristocrat AGEM

IGT Aristocrat AGEMInternational Game Technology (IGT) announced today it will go live with its IGT Cloud at the newly remodeled Reval Park Hotel & Casino in Tallinn, Estonia.

The IGT Cloud will allow Olympic Casino Eesti to provide seamless gaming experiences while reducing their capital expenditure investment. Specifically, the Cloud allows for the download and configuration of games to machines on the casino floor and adds the ability to use deep analytics to make timely decisions based upon player behaviour.

Member of the Board at Olympic Casino Eesti, Meelis Pielberg, said: “Having the unique opportunity to make decisions regarding game configuration will allow us to completely change the player experience in an informed way that is completely tailored to their preferences.”

A press release confirms Olympic Casino Eesti was initially attracted to the IGT Cloud because of the operational efficiency that it will provide for their casino management infrastructure. As a result it was launched the IGT Cloud on 9 March.


An independent survey conducted by Goldman Sachs of slot managers from across the United States has showed that Aristocrat has the best game and the best slot system.

In the survey, Aristocrat’s Buffalo video slot was rated the best slot game, with its top position marking the first time in this survey where an Aristocrat game ranked number one.

Aristocrat’s Oasis 360™ was also named as the best player tracking system.

“What this survey shows in hard, black-and-white numbers is what we knew all along – that Aristocrat has the industry’s top performing games and top performing system. Hearing this from slot operators means even more,” said Aristocrat Americas President Nick Khin.
