Scientific Games continues its legacy of developing industry-leading products with the unveiling of the new Kascada cabinet.
Kascada, which will initially launch in North America, is the company’s first, truly international cabinet and will be available to gaming operators around the world. Built by an award-winning group of Research & Development team members located across the globe, Kascada is the next generation of the top-selling TwinStar J43 cabinet. Kascada offers a modernized version of the J43, boasting an ultra-high-definition 4K graphics display on a 43-inch, innovative double curved monitor and features an exciting new lighting package.
Kascada builds upon the gaming cabinet revolution Scientific Games began with the introduction of the ALPHA Pro Wave, the first curved-screen portrait cabinet. That cabinet sent shockwaves through the industry, changed the look of casino floors and transformed the player experience.
“Kascada is part of the evolution of the gaming floor,” said Matt Wilson, Executive Vice President and Gaming Group Chief Executive. “Technology in consumer electronics is rapidly evolving. We’re creating truly immersive experiences to match what players have become accustomed to in entertainment experiences off the casino floor.
“In developing both cabinets and games, we’re leveraging international teams to tap into and meet consumer expectations around the globe,” Wilson continued. “And, we’ve added top-tier executive talent with operator experience to our commercial team to ensure we keep the perspective of our operator-partners first and foremost. As we evolve our talent and better understand consumer demands and operator needs, our product lines continue to improve. This people plus product approach is a winning combination for us, and our partners.”
People powering progress
A new, but familiar face to the team is Melissa Price, Senior Vice President of Global Gaming Operations. Price joined Scientific Games from Caesars Entertainment where she spent 13 years overseeing enterprise gaming operations for the corporation’s more than 40 casino-resorts worldwide. Her operator-first perspective will assist in the Kascada global launch.
Adding to this commercial expertise, is the prowess of the studio tasked with developing the first game to be featured on the cabinet. Renowned game-maker Qin You, whose studio is behind the popular themes 88 Fortunes and Dancing Drums, has developed exciting new content for Kascada. Building upon her passion for mathematics and history, Qin’s team will unveil Coin Combo with the launch of Kascada.
Proven product performance
Coin Combo is the next chapter in the story of the internationally successful Duō Fú Duō Cái games series, which began nine years ago with the original 88 Fortunes game that sparked a frenzy of Asian-style video slot games on casino floors across the industry.
Launching Kascada with a proven performer is a testament to Scientific Games’ commitment to developing the solutions operators need now. Coin Combo is set to hit casino floors timed to the 2021 Lunar New Year celebration.
