International Game Technology (IGT) has announced that its award-winning Sphinx 4D Video Slots are now live on casino floors across the United States and in select international markets. The Sphinx 4D game is the gaming industry’s first product to leverage mid-air haptic technology and bring an interactive, tactile experience to video slot play.
Players at Station Casinos’ Las Vegas Resort Casinos, Mohegan Sun, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa and Casino di Venezia in Italy were among the first players in the world to experience the immersive game.
Housed on IGT’s CrystalCurve TRUE 4D cabinet, Sphinx 4D combines glasses-free TRUE 3D graphics with mid-air haptic and gesture recognition technologies to create a multi-sensory gaming experience unlike anything previously offered in the casino industry. Gesture recognition technology enables players to use hand movements to move and manipulate the game’s graphics, while mid-air haptic technology gives players tactical feedback as they interact with the game’s 3D graphics.
IGT’s Sphinx 4D game was named “Innovation of the Year” at the 2017 Global Gaming Awards and won the Platinum award in Casino Journal’s “Top 20 Most Innovative Products of 2016” Awards. Over the next year, IGT will introduce the SPHINX 4D game in gaming markets throughout the world.
