Online gambling technology provider Atlantis Internet Group Corp. has obtained a license from EMI Music Publishing allowing it to offer over 1,500,000 songs on its new Jukebox Slot machines, intended primarily for the land gambling industry. The patent pending 'Jukebox Slots' allows casino players to listen to their favourite tunes while playing slots, electronic table and tournament games.
Atlantic hopes to use its online gaming and slot machine knowledge and experience to bridge the gap between traditional land gaming casinos and online gaming, and claims to be one of the first companies to interface with online games and player tracking systems found on traditional floor slot machines.
"Jukebox Slots offers the gaming industry a refreshing new twist with slots, electronic table games, tournament games and music all in one machine; we call it a 'Casino in a Casino,'" said Donald L. Bailey, president and CEO of Atlantis Internet Group.
ATIG started with Hitsville Ventures, LLC to acquire music, and contracted with ID Interactive, LLC, one of the gaming industries' most innovative slot development companies, to develop Jukebox Slots. ID Interactive currently has slots in Indian casinos nationwide with over 100 vendor gaming licenses in Indian casinos, and will also distribute the new Jukebox Slots product. The two companies have signed a term sheet mapping out a potential future merger.
Jukebox Slots will be featured on the Indian version of ATIG's Casino Gateway Network, the "Tribal Gateway Network" -- a gaming network linking Indian casinos nationwide offering popular Class III and Class II games such as Wide Area Progressive Slots, Poker, Keno, Lotto Games, Blackjack and Bango Football.
ATIG recently received an opinion from the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) allowing it to operate its gaming network in over 450 Indian casinos nationwide.
The online activities of the group embrace mainly online casino action.
