Some of these products will be available in SHFL Asia’s sectioned area of the Bally booth.”

Featuring scenes from the film and music from the blockbuster phenomenon, TITANIC integrates many of Bally’s proven play mechanics, four base-game mystery features, and three progressive jackpots, including two minor mystery jackpots and one life-changing top award. The main attraction U-Spin bonus wheel, resembling a ship’s helm, awards credits as well as many bonus features – Heart of the Ocean Free Games, Make It Count Free Games, the Pick Up Feature, and the Safe Bonus.
Also prominently featured will be Bally’s trailblazing Pro Wave cabinet, which features the industry’s first concave high-definition monitor at more than 100 centimeters.

Proprietary Table Games and Cutting-Edge Utility Products Excite Players and Increase Efficiency
Making their G2E Asia debut are proprietary table games like Commission-Free Dragon Bonus Baccarat, which is played identically to the standard game of baccarat, with two exceptions: 1) the banker bets push if the banker hand wins with a three-card total of seven, and 2) winning banker bets are not charged commission. Commission Free Dragon Bonus Baccarat features the Fortune 7 side bet, which pays if the banker wins with a three-card total of seven.
The Utilities segment will be highlighted by the nearly 61-centimeter double-sided LCD i-Score baccarat viewer, with Dragon-themed graphics to appeal to Asian players.
