We sought to design the world’s first modular and configurable slot machine. MarsX is ahead of its time. It provides a modern profile that stands out to players and improves sight lines on floors for casino staff. Its built-in hardware supports the future of gaming, cashless operation, and factory-removable pannier-like external electronics housings. It comes in a variety of flat and curved display configurations featuring a backlit “corona.” The trim elements and gravity-defying halos make the cabinet seem to “float.” The button deck also sports a wireless phone charger to extend play-time.
