New York-listed supplier International Game Technology (IGT) is providing gaming solutions to Atlantic City’s newest venue, Ocean Resort Casino.

The multi-product systems and games agreement with Ocean Resort Casino will see the venue’s gaming floor connected by IGT Systems solutions, including the supplier’s IGT Advantage casino management system.

IGT Advantage will connect more than 1,900 slot games at Ocean and will be complemented by other systems solutions such as IGT's Service Window for in-display player communications, the Random Riches and Carded Lucky Coin bonuses for player promotions, and IGT's Mobile Host, Mobile Dashboard and Mobile Notifier systems technologies for agile operations and customer service.

The casino will also feature a portfolio of popular IGT games such as SPHINX 4D Video Slots, Wheel of Fortune Slots, Fort Knox Video Slots, and classic film-favorite THE GOONIES Video Slots, among others.

In addition, Ocean Resort Casino will integrate IGT's Remote Game Server to deliver the supplier’s interactive games across desktop and mobile devices.

"Creating a highly personalized loyalty program and a gaming floor that includes the industry's most in-demand games for our Ocean Premier loyalty members are top priorities for Ocean Resort Casino," said Ocean Resort Casino chief executive Frank Leone. "We are confident that the combination of IGT games and systems solutions that we've deployed will position us to drive play while efficiently operating our world-class gaming floor."

The venue will open its doors to the public on Thursday, June 28th.

IGT chief commercial officer for gaming, Nick Khin, commented: "By combining proven IGT games such as Fort Knox and Wheel of Fortune video slots with our IGT Advantage, bonusing apps and mobile systems innovations, our customers at Ocean Resort Casino are well-positioned to offer their casino guests exceptional customer experiences with real-time loyalty rewards on cutting-edge games and hardware.”
