Konami Launches Opus in Slovenia, Caribbean

Konami Gaming has announced the European debut of Concerto Opus, its large-format cabinet housing a 65-inch, 4K Ultra HD display, launched at Slovenia’s Casinò Fortuna, and in the Caribbean gaming market with a placement of six units at Casino Atlántico Manatí in Puerto Rico.

The Concerto Opus cabinet is making its European debut with two integrated progressive games, both based on popular Konami classics: Solstice Celebration and Riches with Daikoku.

Opus game launch titles Solstice Celebration Triple Sparkle and Riches with Daikoku Triple Sparkle can be configured as stand-alone or linked progressives. The series has a symbol-driven progressive mechanic that incentivizes players to bet max in order to activate sparkle transformations into instant jackpots. Whenever framed Action Stacked Symbols undergo a third sparkle transformation, players can win a Mini bonus, Major bonus, Mega progressive, or large Maxi progressive starting at €10,000.

Working with exclusive regional distributor Intergames, Casinò Fortuna added a bank of three Opus machines to its luxury 200-machine slot floor. All the new Triple Sparkle games include multi-denom options, with scaling bonus awards.

This spring, Casino Atlántico Manatí added six Concerto Opus machines. In addition, the entire back-to-back bank is connected by Konami’s Treasure Ball progressive link.

Each of Casino Atlántico’s six Opus machines features a proven base game title, in addition to the $10,000-plus linked jackpot bonus game. Featured games include Lion’s Carnival, Chili Chili Fire, Great Guardians and Sparkling Roses, showcased on the big screen with a progressive jackpot chance that increases as players increase their extra bet contribution.

When the Treasure Ball progressive feature is randomly triggered, the game’s dragon character ignites the digital prize ball machine’s drop chute in a spinning whirl of flames. If it lands on a number, that number of random prize balls is awarded. The corresponding number of prize balls fly out of the machine and pop open to reveal instant credit and instant progressive prizes.
