Joa Group has partnered with Aristocrat Technologies to launch the second Lightning Link Lounge in EMEA at its Royal Casino Cannes-Mandelieu, situated in Mandelieu-La Napoule on the French Riviera. The installation forms the centrepiece of a gaming floor redesign, which also incorporates the opening of a new restaurant and outdoor smoking area.
The Lounge features 23 Lightning Link games across a range of cabinet form factors, all sharing a common grand progressive jackpot starting at 10,000€, together with a selection of specially commissioned signage and packaging designed to create a fully-themed zone on the casino floor.
According to General Manager, Jean-François Chapel players can now benefit from an improved bar & dining area and the new possibility of playing their favourite games both indoors and outside. Lightning Link games will also be made available on the smoking terrace, sharing the same linked progressive opportunities offered by the Lounge.
David Pujol, JOA pokies Director for southern France, added that JOA continues to invest in ground-breaking initiatives to deliver a premium entertainment experience to players across all venues. The Lightning Link Lounge concept presents an ideal fit to this strategy with its rapid progressive awards creating a real buzz amongst players.
The JOA Royal Casino Cannes-Mandelieu forms part of a beachfront complex comprising 4-Star Pullman Hotel with swimming pool, nightclub and restaurant facilities, which this week plays host to the two-day European Casino Association Industry Forum, gathering together leaders of Europe’s leading casino groups.
The casino offers 175 slot machines for the pleasure of playing and trying to win the jackpot.
