RENO, NV--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) - Radical Blue Gaming's RGE recently went online as the enabling technology for a progressive gaming application, Volcan, launched at Casino de Charlevoix in La Malbaie, Québec, Canada. This new application, developed by the innovators at Ingenio, a research and development subsidiary of Loto-Québec, is the first operator-developed program to use G2S with existing gaming machines.
"We worked with Ingenio to define what information they needed from the games, with WMS Gaming to survey their games' G2S capabilities, and then pulled all the information together to create a reliable, user-friendly solution for the property -- all within 90 days," said Russ Ristine, President of Radical Blue Gaming. "The Ingenio application demonstrates the true power of G2S in a way that was always imagined, but has never been done before."
RGE receives G2S messages directly from the gaming machines, analyzes the messages, and then forwards selected content to a host system through an easy-to-use application programming interface (API). WMS Gaming's support of G2S, with its ability to connect to multiple G2S hosts, meant that no additional modifications to the games were required. And, of course, the games continue to communicate with the existing slot system without disruption.
Volcan currently interacts with 28 games, driving content on a massive 27-screen display each time a jackpot is won. The successful launch of this new application is garnering rave reviews from players, and Ingenio plans to launch the application at two additional casinos (Montréal and Lac-Leamy) in the coming months.
Nathalie Rajotte, Ingenio's Director General, said, "The G2S solution provided by RadBlue was instrumental in completing the project within its time frame. They made communicating with the games very easy, allowing us to focus on creating our multimedia content and integrating all components. This was our first collaboration with RadBlue and their support throughout was outstanding."
