Leading the line for Novomatic America’s North American market entry is The Dominator®. With its stirring LED illumination and game-dependent colour effects, The Dominator creates a stirring atmosphere and automatically guarantees maximum attention on any gaming floor. Game-synchronized LED-effects, three 24” LCD screens, gripping graphics display together with top sound through an active satellite speaker system plus subwoofer all combine to produce an unforgettable in-depth gaming experience that captures the senses.
The Dominator is the product of the long-time experience in gaming machine design and expert technology know-how of Austrian Gaming Industries product design department. The cabinet’s general ergonomic design, with extra features such as the additional start button integrated in the footrest, guarantees maximum comfort for the guest.
A very popular feature is the Dominator’s innovative TouchDeck™ player interface that represents a modern and user-friendly alternative to the various button panel layouts available. Many casino operators prefer this touchscreen control panel that lends the machine an additional element of elegance and perfectly complements the Dominator’s advanced ergonomic features. The TouchDeck is available in a standard casino layout as well as in an EasyBet version. Right above the control panels and below the main screen, the Dominator features a pre-installed player tracking module that anticipates what is quickly becoming the standard on modern casino floors.
The Dominator comes with a flexibly usable 18.5” TFT topper that can be used for the jackpot animation, thus making additional jackpot signage redundant, or any other video content that the casino management may wish to display. The smaller third screen on top of the two main game screens provides the perfect position for a 3D game theme presentation or the PowerLink™ display of the jackpot levels. Thus the Dominator can serve as a complete jackpot installation in its own right.
The Dominator® is available with a vast range of gripping single games and sophisticated multi-game compendiums based on NOVO LINE™ Interactive. The game mixes comprise all available games in individually colour-coded categories: Classic Lines (10 lines), Multi-Lines (20 lines), Power Lines (50 lines), Fruit Games and Specials (such as Poker, Roulette, Bingo). Players have quickly become accustomed to these categories and appreciate the ease of immediate recognition. For the operator, all games and categories are individually selectable per machine, offering a vast range of possibilities for individual floor design and machine grouping.

First revealed at G2E 2013, Powerbucks is IGT’s all-new, inter-jurisdictional Wide Area Progressive product.
Currently live in three U.S. jurisdictions, Nevada, New Jersey and South Dakota, wagers from all three states contribute to a shared jackpot liquidity pool with the ultimate goal of making more winners, more frequently. As additional states join the link, and a wider player population is playing Powerbucks, jackpot pools have potential to grow at a fast rate than existing WAP products.
“With Powerbucks, IGT re-imagines casino gaming thrills by creating more winners, more often, across multiple states. We all win when players engage more, and Powerbucks enables our customers to attract more players to casinos with the promise of more jackpots,” said Eric Tom, IGT EVP of Global Sales.
Unlike, IGT’s U.S.-based WAP success MegaBucks, Powerbucks will launch not as a standalone theme, but rather as an “add on” to fan-favorite titles such as James Cameron’s Avatar™ Video Slots, Twilight Zone 3D and IGT’s own MegaJackpots theme, Texas Tea Tango. One of the most exciting aspects about Powerbucks is that players are eligible for life-changing jackpot rewards at any bet level, minimum to max bet wager and an in-display monitor clearly communicates jackpot eligibility with every bet.
Unique to the Canadian market, Powerbucks will launch as a converged jackpot experience, combining both online and land-based play into merged jackpot liquidity pools. When can we expect to see Powerbucks in Canada? Upon receipt of all regulatory approvals, IGT will have the green light to go live with Powerbucks, giving way to a renewed excitement in the jackpot space from operators and players alike.
