PALM DESERT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Synergy Blue, the premier creator of skill-based games and platforms for an emerging class of game players, today announced the launch of HAWG® (Hybrid Arcade Wager-based Gaming), a patented, class III certified solution that blends GLI11-compliant, skill- and chance-based gambling with the uninterrupted entertainment of arcade style play.
Today’s casino operators are tasked with combating declining revenues and increased competition from both new casinos and the popularity of online gaming. But driving foot traffic and keeping gamblers engaged with games has become more difficult. Tech-savvy players who grew up playing video and arcade games are spurning traditional casino games, especially slot machines.
“The current challenges of the casino landscape open the door for a new generation of games that bring a new, more engaging experience,” said Georg Washington, CEO of Synergy Blue. “Our certified HAWG® platform is designed to power these games through the marriage of traditional chance-based games with the skill-based experience that so many young players are seeking. It also gives casino operators flexibility by allowing skill components to be scaled to regulations.”
HAWG® is meant to appeal to this new generation of gamers, providing an engaging experience through a seamless entertainment component. This solution will provide a path to new sources of gambling revenue by drawing new players.
HAWG® features include:
- Patented and patent-pending IP
- Class III skill-based or pure chance gambling
- Class II skill-based or pure chance gambling in development
- Regulation as a design foundation — HAWG® does not require special waivers or exceptions to regulation technical specifications
- Guarantees regulated minimum returns to players, while safeguarding maximum returns to operators
- No kiosk or secondary method for redemption required — skill-based rewards are self-contained credits which patrons can continue to play with or cash out
Endless game options:
- First Person Shooters
- Fantasy Role Playing
Synergy Blue has developed several top quality games using their HAWG® platform, which will be showcased at the upcoming Global Gaming Expo, taking place October 3-5 in Las Vegas, NV. The games will be presented at the Synergy Blue booth, #2823. The first casino floor game installations are expected to take place in 2017.
