It is currently in use in 2000 venues throughout New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory to display state-wide keno.  Pilot installations are in place in Treasure Island Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In venue displays are crucial to the success of lottery operation.  In the case of South Australian Lotteries (see graph attached), attention to the in-venue displays turned a declining game into a thriving operation with an amazing 24% growth over 5 years!!

 This PC based gaming display system is extremely flexible and offers the following features:

  • Integrates with a GTECH and a range of other host system providers.
  • Central control of all venue displays.
  • Multiple display channels using just the one PC (leading to significant hardware savings).
  • Full screen animations incorporating 3D rendered imagery.
  • Multiple animations and video sequences for each game draw.
  • Full screen advertisements between games.
  • Secondary screen displays during each draw.
  • Capacity to display different images and animations concurrently. Venues maximise the success of their games by displaying different information on separate screens.
  • Wide variety of different draw themes (more than 65 sports, social and calender events are available - http://www.videosubsystem.com/showcase.html

 Essentially the Video Sub System provides an innovative and proven approach to enhance the visual delivery of your games, brand and image.
