The number of digital gaming machines in pubs continues to grow with the advent of the latest dual screen products Alphastar and Casino slots. These category C products offer a variety of games providing the customer with a choice of game to suit their own interests.

More importantly, the game time on the machine is greater due to higher percentage payout on certain games within the compendium, therefore the customer experience is enhanced. The reliability of the product and network access also means that the most appropriate mix of games can be provided into each establishment and it is expected that machine operators will continue to enhance their systems to develop game data capture to manage content even more effectively over time. The development of these products has been ongoing for more than a decade and now with the cultural changes in the online world we are seeing them grow in popularity.
