Atronic, the largest slot maker in Europe, has struck a deal with Station Casinos to provide 150 "e-motion" slot machines for 13 of its Nevada casinos.

Under the agreement, Station will initially purchase 150 machines by the end of November.

The e-motion slots feature an ergonomically-designed cabinet and other features that appeal to slot players.

"We’ve reached a major milestone with the signing of this contract and are looking forward to continued success in 2006," said John Foley, Atronic’s strategic account manager. "E-motion’s continually expanding game library coupled with its high performance provides Atronic with a strong basis for continued success with key strategic clients such as Stations."

A few of the game titles that will be available on the e-motion machines include Gypsy Fortune, Blastin Barrels and Angels and Devils.

Atronic’s e-motion machines are on the cutting edge of slot machine design — ergonomic and technically advanced slots designed to attract play, build loyalty and generate significant revenue. The unique and eye-catching frame lights, dual TFT screens, and ergonomic cabinet design, including the patent-protected height adjustable playfield, first in the industry, captivate players and operators alike.

The supporting platform enhances e-motion’s exciting design with more interactive games, sophisticated new gaming concepts, and compatibility with future technology

Some of the Station properties that will receive the new slots are Palace Station, Sunset Station and Green Valley Ranch Station.

Headquartered in Germany, Atronic manufactures gaming machines for casinos in 84 countries worldwide. Atronic holds a total of 190 worldwide gaming licenses including the United States, where it is licensed to sell machines in 24 states and to 140 tribes.

The transaction with Station, which is contingent upon regulatory and gaming license approvals, is expected to be completed on December 31, 2006.
