Aristocrat Technologies is shaking up bar top gaming with the release of the new Winner’s World multi-game bar top cabinet.
These bar top gaming cabinets bring new games and new technology to a popular but outdated way to gamble. Aristocrat is installing these new devices in casinos and gaming bars across the country.
Buffalo Grand slot machines and more online casino games
The highlight of the new Winner’s World bar top machines is the inclusion of bar top versions of Buffalo and Buffalo Grand slot machines.
This is the first time the popular slot title can be played while sitting at the bar. While the cabinet is different, the gameplay of the Buffalo slot games is the same as the traditional games found on the casino floor.
These new machines are also bringing the Buffalo theme to one of the most popular bar top games. Winner’s World also features Buffalo Keno. This modern take on keno has the bonuses, multipliers, free games and screeching red hawk that players love in the slot machine versions of Buffalo.
There are multiple slot titles including Aristocrat’s popular Lepre’coins.
In addition to the new slot and keno games, Winner’s World also has the traditional video poker games that bar patrons enjoy. The paytables for video poker can be adjusted to match the other bar top offerings available.
Winner’s World is modernizing bar top gaming
Winner’s World is bringing more to the bar top games than just new games.
Each cabinet features a floating 23.5″ LCD tilted monitor. The bright screens are eye-catching and stand out from the bar top games currently in use. The difference is stunning and the new machines certainly stand out beyond the latest games.
Many new bars have USB outlets for guests to charge mobile devices. Unfortunately, not all bars that offer gambling machines are new.
In an effort to modernize the bar top gaming experience, each Winner’s World cabinet includes an easy-access USB phone charger. This also gives mobile phones a little extra juice so players can share a video of their gameplay on social media.
In a press release, Hector Fernandez, president of Aristocrat Americas, said “While innovation abounds in every area of the casino, bar top play has been largely stagnant, Winner’s World Multi-Game offers a fresh take for our customers, and we’re excited to bring player-favorite Aristocrat games to these venues for the first time.”
Where to find these new bar top slot machine games
Boyd Gaming casinos around the US are the first to see the new Winner’s World machines.
There are 20 Boyd Gaming properties in seven states throughout the US. Boyd Gaming casinos are currently in the following states:
Boyd Gaming also provides slot machines for bars in Illinois and Nevada.
Golden Entertainment (PT’s Pub, Stratosphere, etc.) has already installed numerous Winner’s World machines in various Las Vegas bars and taverns.
As of now, multiple Station Casinos properties in Las Vegas are testing the Winner’s World machines:
- Red Rock
- Green Valley Ranch
- Texas Station
- Boulder Station
More bar top gaming options
Gaming manufacturers offer new gaming experiences every year.
Slot machines and table games on the casino floor show off new technology regularly. Until recently, technology for bar top gaming has been relatively flat.
Winner’s World, from Aristocrat, isn’t the first new bar top gaming experience to appear in casinos and taverns. In 2016, Golden Entertainment signed an agreement with Interblock to use its StarBar gambling machines. These games offer video versions of blackjack, roulette, and craps along with traditional bar games like video poker.
Most bars that offer gambling machines inside and outside of full-service casinos use IGT bar top machines. It seems as though the new competition has sparked something with the slot manufacturer.
IGT plans to introduce PeakBarTop, which will also feature a large 23” screen and a USB outlet for mobile charging. IGT plans to include old video poker favorites along with new video poker games.
Competition is usually good for the customer. Between Aristocrat, Interblock and the new IGT machines, gamblers who prefer playing at a bar have more gaming options than ever.
