LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) - Aruze Gaming America, a rising supplier of global gaming entertainment, announced today that its multiplayer G-STATION™ game, Shoot to Win Craps, has received approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Shoot to Win Craps, the first electro-mechanical Craps game approved in Nevada, allows players to shoot the dice through an innovative Bash Button™ while betting as if it is a live table game.

"Aruze Gaming partnered with New York-New York Hotel & Casino for the Shoot to Win Craps field trial and we are thrilled with the results," said Steve Walther, vice president of Marketing for Aruze Gaming America. "The game continues to perform strong and the player feedback is very positive."
