Casinos and Data Centers
Last article we learned a little about MMORPGs and the way they utilize data centers, now let’s have a look at the way Galaxy Gaming is incorporating a data center into its casino games.
The idea, at least in part, is to open up jackpots across many casinos and into cruise ships, so the shared jackpots can get seriously huge. Apparently so-called “life-altering jackpots” draw a lot of players to casinos. Galaxy Gaming wants to have the largest and fastest-growing jackpots in the world, using a data center to navigate all that information from different locations.
Presumably having virtually connected tables will also allow them to garner data and statistics for their own purposes, and they have hinted that there is more to the new system than massive jackpots. Apparently all the components are fully functional at this point, and beta testing will begin in a couple weeks.
