Light & Wonder

In March this year the Gaming division was rebranded to Light & Wonder (L&W) – a bold move that stunned many in the gaming industry. By May the stock symbol had been changed to the new code LNW and an Investor Day (17 May) held at the New York Stock Exchange shared the redefined vision and values, emphasising an exciting new direction for the Company. 

Light & Wonder wasn’t just a logo or a name change, but an entire rebrand from the inside out. Light & Wonder is focused on creating the games the world wants to play and the underlying technologies to power those games across electronic gaming machines (egms), table games, electronic table games (etgs), online games, live-streaming games and social games – all backed by ground-breaking innovations in systems, hardware and shufflers. 

With all the excitement and attention around the brand, L&W continues to bring a range of powerful new titles to market on its incredible Kascada cabinet line, designed to deliver an unparalleled gaming experience. The Kascada 43” portrait cabinet is complemented by the Kascada Dual Screen. Together they offer a diverse catalogue of game brands and feature mechanics. 

“What customers are seeing from L&W going into AGE is the result of a lot of good decisions made over the previous years

that have come to fruition,” said Managing Director Adrian Halpenny. “We have invested heavily in our studios, our hardware and our commercialisation of products. This is a best-in-class strategy, not a volume game.”  

The most recent successful series is an evolution of the smash-hit KRAKEN UNLEASHED series, DRAGON UNLEASHED, which elevates player excitement through several enhancements and added new surprises within a visually stunning art theme. DRAGON UNLEASHED is one of the flagship products going into the AGE and features four titles RED FLEET, PROSPERITY PACKETS, TREASURED HAPPINESS and THREE LEGENDS. Released in July as a standalone-progressive, DRAGON UNLEASHED has been extremely well received across the eastern states of Australia and will debut as a link-progressive at AGE.   

“We’ve been building over time with KRAKEN UNLEASHED, FAT FORTUNES, HUFF N MORE PUFF … MONEY BURST was the Number 1 game in Queensland in June, and then boom, DRAGON UNLEASHED hits. We are previewing THUNDER DRUMS at this AGE and the globally popular GOLD FISH FEEDING TIME.” 

We look forward to welcoming you to Stand 190 during your time at this year’s AGE.
