Blueprint Machines has confirmed that the first of its roll-out of B3 machines for Thompson Cruises has been completed.
A total of 14 B3 machines, housed in the company’s Aurora cabinet were installed in the Live Casino area of the TUI Discovery 2 by specialist maritime defence and leisure operator OBL Group, ready for a summer season around the Mediterranean.
“The machines went live last Monday, following the shakedown cruise over the weekend and the system worked perfectly,” says Simon Barff, Managing Director of Blueprint Machines. “The machines house our current B3 compendium of classic titles from Blueprint plus leading third-party content.”
“We chose Blueprint to supply machines for this project because of the look, as well as the feel of the games,” says Jon Dyson, Managing Director of OBL Group. “The TUI Discovery 2 has been refurbished to a very high standard in a contemporary style and the Live Casino Room is all about glamour and excitement. The Aurora delivers this in spades.”
TUI Discovery 2 is the lead ship of the Vision Class of cruise ships originally operated by Royal Caribbean International. The ship joins the Thompson Cruises fleet this summer and is already 95% sold out for the 2017 season with around 2000 people expected per week.
