IGT launched its brand-new gaming cabinet, the IGT bluechip Neo, at an extravagant event featuring Sir Les Patterson at the Grand Pavilion at Rosehill Gardens yesterday (Jul 21).

More than 250 people witnessed the unveiling of the IGT bluechip Neo, which has ergonomic design and technology features, including a more comfortable playing position, a bag holder and a drink holder.

A unique button panel extends out from the machine to allow room for players’ knees, while bigger and brighter widescreen LCDs display high-resolution graphics.

The gaming cabinet was also launched with six new games – a record for IGT.

IGT (Australia) managing director, Andrew Hely, said the machine and games will allow venues a significant differentiator in the competitive market.

“This is IGT’s game of the future. There are so many innovations packed into it and I believe it takes gaming performance for both players and venues, to a completely new level,” he said.

There were performances by ex-Popstars singer Tiffani Wood, cabaret dancers and showgirls, with Barry Humphries’ Sir Les Patterson entertaining the room in true ‘Sir Les’ style.

Sir Les Patterson, the IGT bluechip Neo and the six brand new games will be on show in Brisbane tomorrow (Jul 23).

The new offerings from IGT will also be on display at the Australasian Gaming Expo (AGE) on August 16 to 18.
