IGT adds new dimension to slot play with ‘True 4D’ Mark Gruetze, CDC Gaming Reports · September 27, 2017 at 9:31 am IGT is taking slot players into an extra dimension with a cabinet on display at October’s Global Gaming Expo. The company’s “CrystalCurve True 4D” cabinet is the world’s only glasses-free three-dimensional entertainment machine, developers say. In addition, the screen’s gesture-recognition technology takes players inside the game by letting them “touch” on-screen images. For example, they can manipulate three-dimensional lanterns or jewels, wipe away blowing sand or catch butterflies in their hands. The game uses haptic technology to provide a sensation of actually touching an object appearing on the screen. Players also may draw shapes on the screen to create visual effects, and they have the option of changing the scene from day to night or night to day. For now, the cabinet’s only game is Sphinx 4D, in which the character Vizier guides players through a world of ancient Egypt featuring the Temple of Ra, secret chambers and mystic wheels. Sphinx 4D is a follow-up to IGT’s Sphinx 3D game, which is in casinos around the world. Sphinx 4D is expected to be place on casino floors for the first time by the end of this year, said Michelle Schenk, IGT’s senior manager of Global Communications, Gaming. The game was highlighted at last year’s G2E as well as at this year’s ICE Totally Gaming in London and G2E Asia. This year’s G2E display will include Ghostbusters 4D, IGT’s next “True 4D” title. With the Crystal Curve True 4D cabinet, Players can touch and feel the graphics above their seat on a 50-inch curved screen with ultra-HD display, where the images appear in portrait mode. The lower screen has a 32-inch ultra-HD display in landscape mode. Sphinx 4D, a leased title, is a penny game with a minimum bet of 80 credits and maximum bet of 400 credits. The game offers seven interactive bonuses. In the Blazing Numbers bonus, players bring bonus amounts out of the shadows with a light that appears to glow from their fingers. In other bonus events, lightning may shoot from players’ fingertips or players may pick orbs or diamonds to reveal prizes. The cabinet includes a multimedia sound chair that boasts 5.1 surround sound and rumble technology. Players may adjust settings for sound, haptics, chair rumble and the intensity of the game’s 3D technology. It also has a built-in camera and can detect foot traffic nearby, allowing the machine to invite a passing patron to play the game. And it has one more amenity players can appreciate: a charging port for mobile devices. IGT’s display will be in G2E booth 3659.
