Aruze Stands Out with Entertainment-Driven Hardware, Exciting Slots
Visit Aruze at G2E Booth #2659 to see the company’s groundbreaking cabinets, non-traditional video slots and other products designed to boost the fun on your floor.
Gaming demonstrates its unique strength for delivering the most innovative products to the global casino gaming industry. Year after year, Aruze challenges industry norms and creates ground-breaking technologies. At the 2019 Global Gaming Expo Booth #2659 will highlight Aruze’s passion for fun and entertaining products.
On display for the first time at G2E will be the new Muso Curve-43 Hybrid cabinet. Building on the great features of Muso Curve-43, the new cabinet includes an integrated base that adds a comfortable footrest and an exciting lighting experience. Maintaining the unparalleled design of the award-winning Muso Triple-27, the LED web lighting now extends the full length of the cabinet with the introduction of the Muso Triple-27 Hybrid.
Aruze continues to distinguish itself with not only unique hardware, but non-traditional video slot games. The Dream Cash series is an exciting game that does not contain any spinning reels. Dream Cash Fabulous Vegas and Dream Cash Dancing All Night is based on a pick feature, where the player can select between three volatility models or can press the “spin” button to make a random selection. Aruze will be debuting a new game series with similar features at G2E 2019.
In line with the company’s goal of standing out, its Muso Curve-43 Hybrid Reflection package adds an elegant and exclusive design to the casino floor. This pod design is a combination of the Muso Curve-43 Hybrid and reflection pod fillers. This product offering creates an upscale premium package while keeping a simplistic appearance. This minimalistic design makes the Muso Curve-43 Hybrid cabinet the main feature. The Muso Curve-43 Hybrid Reflection package is available in 3 or 4 pod configurations.
This year at G2E, Lucky Roulette breaks from its standard eight-station configuration with an unusual layout of Lucky Roulette that allows for remote viewing and showcases the product’s full capabilities. The 12-station installation shows the potential of the 50-station capability of this product.
At G2E 2019, Aruze displays its continued commitment to providing the best products and configurations to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s casino floor.

ACS PlayOn Presents Newest Cashless App at G2E
Cashless gaming is no longer the “next big thing”— it’s here! ACS PlayOn, the only approved application in use on table games in major casinos and across multiple jurisdictions., will showcase its innovative cashless app at G2E Booth #2020.
Today, cashless gaming is not the wave of the future: it’s in practice, in the present. ACS PlayOn, the only approved application in use on table games in major casinos and across multiple jurisdictions., will showcase its cashless app at G2E Booth #2020.
Just as in other retail businesses, getting chips at the gaming tables will be as easy as swiping/chipping a PIN debit card. ACS will showcase its innovative PlayOn cashless system at G2E this month. This is the first major gaming show since the company received full approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board this summer.
The system has been in use in major California casinos for more than 36 months, successfully providing millions of dollars to players at the tables. It was a big hit in Nevada field trials, held at Red Rock Casino Resort in Las Vegas. With Atlantic City and GLI approvals, the system is now available in most jurisdictions.
Importantly, ACS PlayOn’s application solves most operator concerns. Cashless transactions were overdue in the gaming world, largely due to worries about problem gambling. By using PIN debit instead of a credit card transaction, players cannot spend more than their bank allows. Unlike markers or hold checks, players cannot run up large debts, face huge credit card balances or incur high interest charges inherent with other proposed solutions.
To improve customer service and increase hold, ACS PlayOn uses a small handheld device (positioned at the table) that’s slightly larger than a smart phone. Players are handed the mobile unit, and use it just as they would similar devices at grocery store registers everywhere. Players request the amount they wish to receive, enter their PIN and, upon bank approval, are issued a receipt.
Simultaneously, the dealer gets a ticket dispensed from a printer under the table and treats it just like cash. Virtually, all standard table game, drop and accounting procedures are followed. Unlike markers, there is no interruption in play for others as the transactions are processed. The ACS PlayOn proprietary system and handheld devices are PCI DSS compliant, making each transaction much more secure than using Android or IOS smart phones. PCI DSS is the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards that all the major card brands and banks require.
There are several advantages for operators as play is not interrupted, procedures require little new training, a “real-time” financial accounting/reconciliation system is provided, and surveillance receives an “image” of every transaction and ticket issued.
Best of all, there are no concerns about Title 31 CTR paperwork at the tables. When only dealing with debit cards and chips, no cash is involved and therefore no money laundering issues. Later when a player cashes out at a cage, all standard Title 31 procedures apply.
One surprising benefit is that hold percentages often go up. According to ACS PlayOn Chief Operating Officer Steve Warner, “In addition to a major increase in guest convenience, when players can play without interruption, all the metrics improve, including hold, hands per hour and theoretical win – players remain engaged at the game.”
Warner and his ACS PlayOn team, based in Reno, NV are largely veteran casino operators. Therefore, they set out to design a system that didn’t burden dealers with new procedures, fit in with existing back of the house internal control requirements and improved the flow of the game. Warner said, “There is nothing more frustrating for players and dealers when a game is held-up by waiting for a player getting a marker or forcing a player to leave a game to get additional cash at a cage or kiosk.”
ACS PlayOn will be demoing the system in Booth #2020 on the Sands Expo floor at G2E. There is no upfront cost for operators as the system is financed through a portion of the standard POS fees. While it is configurable to any level by the operator, most PIN debit fees are lower than ATM or Credit Card Advance transactions and many operators have chosen to pass those savings along to their customers. That’s just one more reason why player’s trust and love this system.

GameCo invented and pioneered the concept of video game gambling machines, which allow a player’s skill to impact the payout and winnings while maintaining the same casino economics as slot machines – combining chance and skill in an entirely new way.
At G2E, GameCo will unveil new and updated game titles, including Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Steve Aoki’s Neon Dream rhythm runner, and SoulCaliburII Casino Edition (with Multiplayer Arena). Alongside these core games will be casual and sports titles, including PopFish (Fast Match), All-Star Hoops (basketball), and Mystery of the Secret Temple (Match 3).

Gaming Analytics.AI: Changing the Way the Industry Makes Decisions
Gaming Analytics Inc. will attend G2E with a new approach to data analytics: a language processing tool that lets casino staff type or speak data questions from a phone or desktop for immediate answers. Visit Booth #5440 to learn more.
For the first time, Gaming Analytics Inc. will make an appearance at G2E, showcasing a refreshing approach to data analytics. It has developed a powerful tool based on natural language processing that allows casino staff to simply type or speak their data-related questions on the fly, from any phone or desktop, to receive immediate answers. The startup is making its G2E debut at Booth #5440.
If you’ve been waiting for the latest developments in artificial intelligence and machine learning, Gaming Analytics founder and CEO Kiran Brahmandam has a solution. After more than a decade in the industry, he saw the market need for an easy-to-use platform to make complicated casino data accessible and meaningful to employees at every level of training and experience. In 2017, Brahmandam launched GamingAnalytics.AI, an award winning platform that makes predictive analytics easy, accessible and affordable for all. This solution is the flexible, dynamic platform needed to make full use of casino data without a data scientist on staff. The proof is in the pudding: industry-leading casinos across the globe are choosing Gaming Analytics over well-known industry giants as their data analytics platform.
The Gaming Analytics mission is to make data analytics easy, actionable and affordable. The team’s experience and research has formulated a deep understanding of the business problems that casino operators are up against. Gaming Analytics wants to seamlessly integrate with the existing workflows of your operations team, making AI your virtual assistant as you look for opportunities in your slot mix or strengthen relationships with your top players. Stop by the Innovation Lab Booth #5833 on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. to attend “Practical Applications of AI/ML: Customer Retention Made Easy with AI/ML.” Brahmandam will explain how to use machine learning to improve customer retention.
Visit Booth #5440 for demos of industry-first NLP-based data platform, including the new churn analysis feature, which automatically detects churn and alerts player development to take appropriate actions. Capable of predicting churn four times faster than traditional methods, the feature includes all the information a casino marketer needs to make contact immediately, before the player goes cold. Casino operators can see how much value loss they’ve experienced due to churn and which players are likely to churn in the future.
On the slots side, Gaming Analytics’ proprietary technology makes good games great with the GamingAnalytics.AI recommendation engine. Says Brahmandam, “Slot operators focus the majority of their attention on low performing assets due to the limited number of hours in a day. Our machine learning-generated recommendations give slot operators the capacity and confidence to make changes to machines that are already performing well.” The end result? Kiran explains, “Armed with highly accurate predictions, slot operators have the capacity to optimize the slot mix from top to bottom.” At one casino, GA recommendations improved net win of some of the top performing games by an additional 123 percent (from 5.52x Zone Average to 6.87x Zone Average).

Continuing to be a leader in innovation, Interblock will display its latest line of ETGs featuring its breakthrough form factor the Universal Cabinet. The Universal Cabinet is a standalone unit with slot-like hardware designed to support a variety of games. Available in both video and automated formats, the product will demonstrate craps, roulette, blackjack and baccarat games.
The Universal Cabinet line of games represents a new segment and provides an unique perspective on table games. The new line provides operators with the ability to offer a variety of ETGs in a smaller, flexible footprint with complete configuration flexibility. Players enjoy an intimate tactile ETG experience that moves at the pace of the player. Universal Cabinet is revolutionary to the gaming industry and will change the way a typical casino floor is configured moving forward. Universal Cabinets will bring even more newly carded players to the casino floor and increase the hold and handle the industry has historically seen from ETGs.
Interblock’s award-winning stadium configuration, Pulse Arena, is one such product demonstrating the company’s latest enhancements. All Interblock Stadiums can be configured with automated, video, dealer assist generators and/or live table platforms based on footprint availability. This flexible platform provides operators with the most efficient use of floor space when multiple games are activate. Any desired number of play stations can be connected to a single unit. It offers the most versatile Stadium game portfolio while generating continuous play and reducing operating expenses.
With compelling audio and visual effects and side bets the product line gives ultimate flexibility to operators and provides an enhanced gaming experience. Live crap will allow players to throw the dice within a stadium environment. Tournament-mode will also be active on various game types within the Stadium as well as its ability to connect to external Interblock generators.

Recently upgraded hardware will be on display for the video versions of blackjack and baccarat, offering all of the player favorite features in a more compact footprint, as well. Each game will feature an enhanced Virtual Dealer with fast-deal graphics that have reduced waiting time for participating players resulting in more hands per hour.
Finally, Interblock’s Golden Ball Roulette will be featured at the show. A completely new take on the classic roulette game Golden Ball generates results based on different color balls ejecting out of the ball magazine.

JCM Global, CountR Bring Secure New Transaction Solutions to G2E
JCM Global and CountR have entered into a new agreement that brings increased security, TITO, and innovative cashless payment solutions to the table games area of the casino. Discover the new systems at JCM’s G2E Booth #4039 and in CountR’s Booth #4200.
JCM Global and CountR are joining forces to bring increased security, TITO, and innovative cashless payment solutions to the table games area of the casino. Discover the new systems at G2E Booth #4039 (JCM) and Booth #4200 (CountR).
Under the new agreement, JCM will distribute CountR’s TITA system, a table games payment solution that allows for TITO and POS transactions, along with high-speed and high security currency validation using JCM’s MRX bill validator, all directly at the table game. JCM will distribute the TITA system throughout North America, Latin America, and the Asia Pacific region.
“JCM has a long history of developing solutions that help our casino partners increase their security, efficiency, and player connections. CountR’s TITA system is a unique solution that utilizes JCM’s technology and intellectual property, creating new buy-in methods for table games, increasing player convenience, and making table transactions more efficient,” says JCM Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Operations Dave Kubajak. “Combining JCM’s history of innovation with CountR’s TITA solution is a perfect partnership that will benefit casinos worldwide.”
“Combining CountR’s innovative and smart solutions with JCM’s robust products and services is a synergistic endeavor that creates the only end-to-end response for table operations’ most pressing needs and concerns,” adds CountR VP of Global Sales Virginie Bellaton. “CountR TITA gives cash access to patrons, keeps chip inventory at the table, and brings complete transactional security and trackability. With the unrivalled system connectivity of CountR, TITA integration is a natural next step to TITO operations.”
The TITA system enables TITO transactions at the table game where a TITO ticket is issued to a player in exchange for their chips. For the operator, this reduces the number of table fills and drops per day, resulting in decreased table down time and increased hands per hour. For the player, this eliminates the need to stand in line to cash chips at the cashier’s cage and enhances their overall play experience. Players can redeem their TITO ticket at any redemption kiosk, or move freely from table games to slots or from slots to table games with their TITO ticket. The TITA system accepts and accounts for both TITO tickets and TITO promotional vouchers.
With the TITA system, operators can now support POS transactions at the table, giving players the ability to withdraw funds directly from their account without leaving the table. This increases player satisfaction and increases the overall efficiency of the casino operation.
Additionally, JCM’s MRX bill validator reads two notes/TITO tickets per second, bringing the fastest bill validation solution to table games. The MRX can be upgraded to include JCM’s Intelligent Cash Box (ICB®) system to provide the highest level of accounting.
Attendees at G2E can experience the TITA system in JCM’s Booth #4039 or in CountR’s Booth #4200.
Konami Innovates the Gaming Floor of Tomorrow at G2E
From new game form factors to facial recognition technology, Konami’s G2E 2019 presence demonstrates a commitment to invest in the industry’s future. Visit Booth #1256 to get a preview.
A company characterized by its strong entertainment heritage and proven dependability, Konami Gaming, Inc. is using G2E 2019 to provide the industry with a first look at an expanding lineup of future product. Guests from across the globe will be among the first to experience entirely new slot cabinets, creative game content, and casino systems solutions aimed at advancing product technology across the space.
“Konami’s aim is empowering operators with exceptional entertainment to reach and engage today’s players and beyond,” says Tom Jingoli, executive vice president & chief commercial officer at Konami Gaming. “We are actively leveraging a combination of top technology, talent, design, and development to deliver a host of new products at this year’s event, through the immediate years to come.”
On the heels of high performance across the big-screen Concerto Opus cabinet, and growing momentum for its award-winning KX 43, Konami is further expanding its cabinet lineup with a never-before-seen, portrait screen machine. Built to maximize merchandising, versatility, and enjoyment, Konami’s latest slot cabinet will showcase several debut series in captivating 4K Ultra HD. Guests at G2E Las Vegas will be first in the industry to experience the machine firsthand.
KX 43 is set to premiere six unique linked progressives filled with must-see play mechanics. Fortune Mint is among this year’s showcase series on the 4K UHD portrait screen machine. It features two debut base games, mystery multipliers, symbol-driven jackpots, and vibrant Asian-inspired art elements. KX 43 will also debut a mix of custom merchandizing options, designed to maximize appeal and performance.
Original game releases for Konami’s award-winning Opus cabinet will be featured across its 65-inch display during G2E 2019, including Hao Yun Lai. Hao Yun Lai is the first ever game to combine the popularity of both Strike Zone—from games like Star Watch Magma—and the Fade Away Feature—from games like Chili Chili Fire—together in one. When any wild symbol lands within the player’s selected Strike Zone it triggers the Fade Away Feature, which eliminates all lower-value card symbols and leaves only higher-value picture symbols for big win combinations. Hao Yun Lai also includes a symbol-driven integrated progressive delivered through a new Pop n’ Drop Feature that involves stacked fireworks that hang in the upper area of the screen.
Konami’s award-winning Synkros casino management system will offer live demo opportunities throughout the show, with a number of award-winning advancements including Synk Vision facial recognition and the SynkConnect player mobile app. Both are “cardless” solutions, designed to empower players with the opportunity to receive targeted offers, rewards, and communications, without the need for a traditional player loyalty card. In addition, this year marks the debut of Konami’s comprehensive Title 31/Anti-Money Laundering (AML) system Synk31, which allows permissioned administrators to electronically gather, track, review, complete, and deliver all AML requirements with robust, real-time results.
For more information, guests are encouraged to visit the Konami team at G2E Booth #1256 or go to Konamigaming.com.

VizExplorer Details Increasing Role of Automation in Slot Analysis at G2E
At G2E Booth #3630, the VizExplorer team will discuss the role of technology in lightening the work load for casino employees while increasing the accuracy and comprehensiveness of player data.
For most land-based casino operators in the U.S., the number of tasks staffers must complete to remain competitive is only increasing. At the same time, staff must to do more with less as most properties are consolidating casino teams into smaller and smaller units, significantly increasing individual workloads.
In addition, casino staff often wear a lot of hats, from executing strategic plans, managing financials and interacting with guests, to negotiating deals with vendors, coaching staff, and providing high-value analysis across the games on the floor. This time-starved environment has driven operators to look toward technology to help alleviate the rising demand.
The VizExplorer Slot Recommendation Engine, an automated slot analysis solution, bridges the gap by helping slot operators automatically identify new game changes and calculate expected lift to drive incremental slot revenue while spending less time analyzing their slot floor. Hear all about it at G2E Booth #3630.
The solution was designed to aggregate the vast quantities of accounting and player level data generated by an operator’s slot system, and identify new changes based on patterns and anomalies outside of standard analysis. The average slot performance manager spends upwards of 72 hours every month crunching numbers and building reports, with the ultimate goal of reaching an actionable decision.
This desire manifests itself through reports that become so repetitive that they begin to lose meaning and simply stack upon each other month-over-month. These reports include everything from manufacturer, denom and section breakdown analysis; to bank-by-bank and game-by-game analysis. Each operator puts their own unique twist on the analysis with the overarching goal being the same; to provide a list of 10 percent to 20 percent of the floor that, if changed in a meaningful way, could drive incremental revenue across the property.
The vast number of possible slot report variations combined with the non-analytical demands placed upon gaming operations, ultimately drive many to focus in on narrowly targeted reports and analysis that become the foundation and backbone of their game change initiatives. This narrow focus, while driven by necessity, also opens the possibility of missing opportunities that do not fit within the consistent behavior corridor. These challenges do not even account for the sheer time necessary to truly analyze games and players in conjunction with each other.
Working with dozens of casino operators, VizExplorer built the Slot Recommendation Engine to automate the entire process, analyzing each section individually for add, removal, move, and conversion recommendations. With the VizExplorer Slot Recommendation Engine, slot operators can get the slot floor analysis they need while getting valuable time back in their day to focus on other important tasks and day-to-day responsibilities.
