“The cabinet’s design required our teams to work collaboratively to get every element right,” Wilson continued. “Our cabinet design has evolved into a much more holistic process where we’re taking insights from players, inputs from our partners and working across our teams to ensure nothing is left to chance. The Mural cabinet is the evolution of the gaming floor and we could not be more excited to unveil it.”

“The ability of our teams to build such a beautiful, massive cabinet in this new digital, work from home environment is a testament to their skill. It shows how we have effectively leveraged our global workforce to bring together top talent from around the world to build our industry-leading products,” said Wilson.
