Diamond Game has introduced a new product line, NexPlay™. The suite of products includes a first-of-its-kind self-service terminal (“SST”), an enhanced ticket checker (“ETC”), and a bar-top version of the ticket checker (“ETC Lite”). These products are the next play in self-service for state and provincial lotteries.
Like traditional SSTs, the NexPlay™ SST offers players self-service purchasing of instant and draw game tickets. What makes NexPlay™ unique is the interactive experience it brings to instant ticket game play.
Upon purchase, the result of each instant ticket is displayed on the monitor in an animated form, adding entertainment to instant ticket play—a proven method of increasing sales volumes. NexPlay™ also supports draw game and keno purchases, as well as the ability to check ticket results. The new Box Bingo™ draw game was featured on the NexPlay SST at NASPL. Box Bingo™ is a bingo-style draw game with multiple daily draws that combines the power of time-honored bingo with a unique shared bingo card to provide an exciting community experience.
The NexPlay™ Enhanced Ticket Checker is the most entertaining ticket checking device on the market.
Animations create an engaging experience and anticipation builds as players check to see if their ticket is a winner. The ETC also offers video replays of draw game results and allows for second chance drawing entries.
The same functionality is offered by the NexPlay™ ETC Lite, a bar-top ticket checker designed for social establishments with minimal room for a full device footprint. Diamond Game offers an unique instant ticket game, SeedMoney™, with a patented progressive top prize, on the ETC and ETC Lite.
According to Rob Siemasko, Vice President of Product Management at Diamond Game, the NexPlay suite of products is coming out of the company’s innovation lab after many months of development.
Diamond Game designs, produces, and services games, gaming systems, and tickets for the public gaming, Native American, and charity markets. Diamond Game maintains its corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, California and service facilities in Hamilton, Ontario, and Jefferson City, Missouri.
