The Research

The Blueprint

Stakeholder Requirements

Beyond providing a great player experience, we discovered several key additional stakeholder needs. Casino operators were craving improved efficiencies on their casino floors, and wanted the ability to trial new and unique banking configurations. Everi required faster time-to-market when they create solutions for rapidly changing market needs. These insights lead to the birth of a platform design approach featuring a highly flexible trapezoidal cabinet footprint.
