iGaming Business – Gaming solutions provider Scientific Games has agreed a 10-year deal to supply its SGVideo central monitoring and control system to the Independent Gaming Corporation of South Australia (IGC).
The new system, which supports G2S and QCOM communications protocols, will monitor about 12,500 gaming machines in more than 550 locations across South Australia.
It will provide real-time security and financial monitoring across the entire gaming machine network, and will verify that only properly certified software is running on connected machines.
The SGVideo system replaces the AEGIS video system that was previously provided by Scientific Games.
“After a comprehensive and competitive procurement process, our selection of Scientific Games and their SGVideo system allows us to provide participating hotels, clubs and the South Australian government with a modern monitoring and accounting platform that meets or exceeds our requirements,” IGC general manager Harry Bourlotos said.
“Additionally, we are confident that its secure, scalable and adaptable architecture will meet our growing needs and expanding requirements for many years to come.”
Bill Huntley, executive vice-president and group chief executive of gaming at Scientific Games, added: “The IGC takes its role of ensuring the integrity of South Australia’s gaming machine business very seriously.
“Being chosen to deploy our next-generation SGVideo system is a tribute to the very high standards by which the IGC operates and the powerful, yet cost-efficient and flexible attributes of the SGVideo system.”
