Can’t-Miss Stands at ICE Totally Gaming—ExCeL London, February 7-9

Product Showcase: ICE Totally Gaming

With a growth of almost 10 percent in 2017, stopping at every stand at ICE Totally Gaming, February 7-9 at ExCeL London, is impossible. So here are a few products that fall into the “can’t-miss” category:

 

Konami Gaming’s New Approach Concerto Slant

For the first time at ICE 2017, proven signature elements of Konami’s top-performing Concerto cabinet are expanding to a complete lineup of video slot offerings, beginning with Concerto Slant. Consistent to the original upright machine, Concerto Slant carries dual 27-inch HD game screens, but with a lower profile and relaxed-angle posture for player comfort and convenience. Concerto Slant supports any game content found on Concerto upright, and is also backward-compatible with proven KP3 platform titles such as Dragon’s Law, Lotus Land, China Shores and many more.

 

Concerto SeleXion

Konami’s popular SeleXion multi-game is now bringing the industry’s fastest game change speed to Concerto for the first time. With expanded memory and processing power, up to 10 different games themes can be featured on a single machine, as well as a progressive bonus. Concerto SeleXion is available for both standard Concerto upright and Concerto Slant. During ICE, Konami will demonstrate the flexibility of Concerto SeleXion to highlight either KP3 platform games or new KP3+ titles, with stand-alone or linked progressives.

 

Pharaoh’s Fury

Filled with a fascinatingly mysterious Egyptian theme, Pharaoh’s Fury is another 7-8-8-8-7 debut game for Concerto Crescent and Concerto Stack. Pharaoh’s Fury also carries a free-game feature with bursts of extra wilds across the reel sets according to the number of trigger symbols.

 

Interblock Changing Operators’ Visions of a Successful Floor

Luxury gaming manufacturer and electronic table game market leader Interblock presents a diverse profile of new products, side bets, features and functionalities at stand S4-210.

Interblock Global CEO John Connelly said, “2016 has been a year dedicated to investing in all sectors of the business in order to build an infrastructure for the future. We introduced new, innovative technology designed to enhance the player experience and expanded our product portfolio, which has allowed any casino to place an Interblock product on its floor.

“Our objective at ICE this year will be to show our commitment to our customers by showcasing our most demanded products for the market, by introducing our newest products and features, and by sharing our data-driven information illustrating that ETGs should no longer be directly compared with the slot business.”

At this year’s exhibition, Interblock will showcase its wide range of automated, video and dealer-assist advanced multi-player electronic table games, methodologically enhanced based on customer and player feedback, including the Big Six wheel, StarBar, Stadium, MiniStar Roulette, Trio, Pulse Arena, Dual Roulette and more. The MiniStar Roulette offers a smaller footprint than Interblock’s Diamond Roulette product line to accommodate any casino floor.

 

TCSJohnHuxley to Feature Qorex at ICE

ICE Totally Gaming will provide a major showcase for TCSJohnHuxley’s Qorex electronic gaming solutions. First debuted at G2E in September, the innovative Qorex terminals—part of configurations ranging from automated table games to stadium-style electronic table game setups—are already preparing for major installations in the U.K. and Asia.

“The introduction of Qorex has provided our customers with the opportunity to have a fully integrated hybrid gaming terminal that delivers innovative design, an intuitive easy-to-navigate interface, and because it’s modular, it’s extremely flexible and can be configured to suit any gaming environment,” said Tristan Sjöberg, executive chairman of TCSJohnHuxley. “With the added benefits of increased security and customized game content, Qorex is proving to be a must-have product for any gaming floor.”


Aristocrat Passion

Slot supplier Aristocrat Technologies has previewed its display of games and systems for its stand at ICE Totally Gaming. The display, on stand S3-250, is themed “Passion for Gaming.”

“A strong portfolio combining exciting content, segmented product lines and popular licensed themes have been the key business driver over the last 12 months,” said James Boje, managing director-EMEA for Aristocrat.

“A significant proportion of our stand space at ExCeL will incorporate premium licensed brands, demonstrating Aristocrat’s ongoing commitment to this extremely important segment.”

At ICE 2017, Aristocrat will also expand its range of licensed formats, with Zorro and Sharknado being released on the Arc Single platform, both packed with a broad variety of features and proven mechanics for extended entertainment value.
