The highly-anticipated Sphinx II slot machines from European gaming giant Atronic are being debuted at Station Casinos in Las Vegas.

The game has been launched at The Reserve, Palace Station, Texas Station, The Fiesta and Boulder Station.

Even more Sphinx promotions are planned on the Las Vegas Strip in January, including the Luxor, Excalibur, Harrah’s and Bally’s.

Atronic first unveiled Sphinx II at the G2E Expo in Las Vegas. Since then, demand has been strong.

“With the year-long experiences of the Gauselmann Group, we continue to develop great games with long game life-cycles, focusing on player motivation and entertainment,” said Joe Bailo, vice president of sales, marketing and service.

An exclusive agreement with Station Casinos give the casino operators the chance to be the first local properties to offer the game in Las Vegas. Moreover, Atronic is supporting the game with promotions and prizes.

Sphinx II features a revolutionary three-tiered bonus and a unique double bet feature that allows players to choose how they would like to play the game. This feature, as well as the Tutankhamun’s Treasure bonus, has been enchanting players since the games were installed at the first Station Casino location.

Atronic is owned and operated by the Gauselmann Group, which has sold more than 1.6 million machines and 82,000 gaming devices in the year 2000 alone.

Atronic is headquartered in Germany and has offices in Australia, Austria, Great Britain, Peru, South Africa and the United States. Atronic holds 129 gaming licenses including the U.S. with 22 state licenses and 97 Indian Gaming licenses for tribal casinos.
