IGA Booth #933
“We love being part of IGA because it reaches the heart and soul of the industry. This year we decided to showcase several of our classics – many of which have been updated in new and exciting ways. We strive to bring the best new games to the casino floor, like our award-winning Go Go Claw, and there’s nothing better than an update on a casino legacy like craps. Shoot to Win Craps has been on casino floors for decades — and we are making it better for each and every generation of player.” – Yugo Kinoshita, Global CEO, Aruze Gaming Group
Aruze has created innovative products that do not sacrifice the spirit of the casino, such as its captivating suite of Activ-Play™ slots and exceptional ETGs. While Aruze continues to improve its suite of offerings, the company will be reintroducing several of its modern classics, updated to improve the experience of tribal gamers, such as the popular Shoot to Win Craps™.
Shoot to Win Craps™ Lucky Roll, a player-initiated craps game commonly known as “bubble craps,” is now a more engaging experience for all players. A “help” menu initiates those interested in but intimidated by craps – allowing gamblers of all levels to feel welcomed into tribal casinos. A live camera feed and light-up shooter button help players see the outcomes and launch their bets into a bubble of larger-than-life dice. These extra elements work in tandem to make every bounce of the dice memorable for everyone gathered around the table.
Tribal operators can now tailor the gameplay to house preferences with custom settings including odds, commission, simultaneous bets, jackpot features and “don’t bet” areas.
A new function for configuring minimum and maximum bets now comes standard on this upgrade – making floor customization easier than ever. The lights, sounds and graphics are customizable, fitting it to the theming of any home casino.
To make it even more enticing for tribal casino players, Shoot to Win Craps™ Lucky Roll received several visual upgrades – calling people in to see the giant dice bounce around for a chance at an even bigger jackpot. A new overhead display wrapped in bright LED lights creates spectacular optics, a modern upgrade that harkens back to the classic casinos many patrons may be nostalgic for. By continuing to improve these legacy games, tribal operators do not sacrifice their existing demographic while appealing to a more modern one. Aruze provides solutions that cater to everyone, from the casino connoisseur to the nervous novice.

Bluberi has announced the release of its new game family – Double Flamin’ Link. The company has improved the overall player experience with Double Flamin’ Link Blazing Tiki and Blazing Ares. Fans of hold and spin games will be delighted with unexpected surprises like split cash balls, the guaranteed jackpot winning juggling feature, and the helping hand character that can reward players with extended bonuses. These games provide a great gambler experience with variety and fun for any player.
Tribal operators will also love some of the functionality Bluberi has integrated into this new game series. Bluberi’s first dynamic player selectable multi-denomination theme will allow casinos to control liability while incentivizing players to play at higher denominations, increasing coin in. The brand new lucky spin feature allows players to play-off any residual credit; reducing tickets printed, time at the kiosk, and more coin in. Bluberi is committed to making game features that improve the operator experience.
