On March 23rd, 2009, Las Vegas Gaming Incorporated announced that it has relaunched their highly anticipated keno game, Nevada Numbers, with hourly draws, improving player chances of winning the progressive jackpot of over $5 million. Previously, the keno draws happened everyday at 6:00 p.m. By improving the game draws to every hour everyday, players can now enjoy 336 keno games in a row, a substantial improvement from fifty games they were able to buy before the improvement.
Jon Berkley, LVGI's President and Chief Executive Officer said that they are very happy to give their player more chances to win the keno game progressive jackpot. He said that for just $2 tickets and now with drawings happening every hour, the Nevada Numbers is more exciting and interesting than ever! Back in September 2007, Las Vegas Gaming Incorporated paid out a jackpot of $6,376,452, the biggest keno jackpot in the state's history. The winning ticket was bought at Sam's Town, one of the many casino facilities where the game is being featured.
Berkley said that the effect of the Nevada Numbers Jackpot had on the winner is profound and they hope that they will get more opportunities to change lives of different people with this change to an hourly drawing. The Nevada Numbers, Million Dollar Ticket and Super Bingo Games are just some of the games LVGI is featuring in different casino facilities throughout Nevada. Using the NumberVision application with LVGI's PlayerVision technology, players will be able to acquire a Nevada Numbers ticket from a slot machine in the near future.
Blakely said that with the NumberVision application, they will be able to improve the offering of their games. Together with the NumberVision application and PlayerVision application will enable real-time betting opportunities, bonuses, CRM content, marketing and other type of marketing content and other content. The PlayerVision system and application gaming portfolio can be delivered on brand and present gambling machines' video screens, gamer tracking screens as well as IGT's sbX products.
