Taking centre stage on the IGT booth at G2E Asia this year was the award-winning OnPremise mobile betting solution with new baccarat back-betting functionality.
The new back betting feature utilises embedded technology that enables casino patrons to play at multiple live tables simultaneously through their smartphone or tablet from any permitted area within a casino.
IGT’s Rebecca Chan and Adam Olrog were on hand to demonstrate OnPremise’s new functionality with a scaled-up demonstration model. The product’s back-betting with side bets capabilities can seamlessly integrate into existing Players’ Club programmes and enables players to earn rewards for OnPremise play.
The OnPremise solution is designed to open up the mobile world to land-based casinos and provide gaming opportunities that go beyond the limits of physical expansion. Other key features of OnPremise for players and operators include: omni-channel games, one- touch access, player loyalty programmes, convenience applications and more.
“OnPremise, really highlights the breadth of what we are trying to do with new technologies,” said Walter Bugno, chief executive of IGT’s International division. “In Macau, for example, when 95 percent of the revenue is coming through table games, we are really trying to demonstrate the possibilities.
“Customer feedback has been great not just in Macau but also the Philippines, Malaysia and Cambodia,” he stated.
