Incredible Technologies Brings New Edge Hardware, Content to NIGA
Incredible Technologies will showcase its latest hardware and software packages at NIGA 2019. Stop at Booth #1541 to see what’s new, including industry-first angled bank configurations with 4K video wedge displays.
The Infinity V55 Edge debuted at G2E 2018 in a first-of-its-kind back-to-back sawtooth configuration, using a serpentine-like shape to boost player comfort, casino aesthetics and performance.
New angled Edge configurations debuting at NIGA include a Pinwheel-shaped carousel, a Diamond shape and a V-shaped configuration dubbed “The Flying V.” These options are coupled with IT’s V55 cabinet and deep catalog of new and proven content.
“The Edge was a gamble to innovate how we market our games and ultimately boost occupancy and performance,” said Caitlin Harte, IT director of product marketing. “Initial performance data indicates these video wedges have done just that, allowing for more efficient use of themes and no ‘middle game’ effect.
“Customers are building feature banks in common straight bank areas and marketing departments are launching custom campaigns seamlessly on their floors with our games,” Harte added. “Without great content, this retailing effort would lose meaning. NIGA will showcase a dozen new titles of the over 60 themes our teams are developing this year.”
IT plans to showcase the new slot titles for Infinity V55, Skybox and Super Skybox platforms in San Diego. Featured themes include the first-ever completely configurable high denomination theme, Pure Luxe, with three titles debuting on the V55. Additionally, new proven core games like Fireworks Festival and Sky Dragons will be on display.

Konami Brings New Systems, Slots, Mobile Solutions to NIGA
Konami Gaming will bring the latest games and systems technologies to Booth #2131 at NIGA. The lineup includes Konami’s all-new KX 43 slot cabinet, delivering a uniquely ‘Konami’ experience across its 43-inch 4K Ultra HD display with a robust debut game library.
Showcasing several new integrated jackpot games from Dragon’s Law Rapid Fever to Hao Hun Lai, Konami’s popular Concerto Opus machine is also featuring 4K entertainment at NIGA 2019, but in a 65-inch format for super-sized enjoyment by players and pairs.
Throughout the two-day event, Konami’s SYNKROS casino management system is operating live for on-the-spot demos of the latest tools and features, including award-winning mobile products such as SynkConnect and Synkdot. An estimated 6,000 casino executives and tribal leaders have the opportunity experience these releases and more at Booth #2131.
“From systems to slots, Konami is delivering its newest and most promising developments to the 2019 Indian Gaming Show to share with some of the industry’s top representatives and professionals,” said Casey Whalen, vice president, North American game sales. “Tribal operators were among our very first customers when Konami Gaming was founded, and we actively affirm the importance and influence of Indian Gaming in the way we choose to do business and develop new product.”
Guests will experience the largest lineup of KX 43 games to date. The cabinet’s market release coincides with NIGA, showcasing seven unique debut titles available now for placement. This includes games from the new Reels Up series, like Vegas Rise and Mayan Times as well as Diamond-izer, Treasure Ball and Konami’s popular Triple Sparkle series. NIGA 2019 also features the premiere of a new Strike Zone game in 4K Ultra HD called Hao Yun Lai, which is set for release this summer alongside Ba Fang Jin Bao, Dragon’s Law Rapid Fever, Dragon’s Law Boosted and Chili Chili Fire Boosted Wins & Wilds.
“The level of creativity, energy, resources, and attention that has been invested into KX 43’s game launch library is truly groundbreaking for Konami. More importantly, it aligns operators for the greatest success with the latest entertainment,” said Whalen. “From popular brand extensions to original jackpot mechanics, KX 43 offers an outstanding game library for players and operators to choose from.”
Konami’s big screen Opus machine is another centerpiece of this year’s event. Following strong launch results for the cabinet’s debut Triple Sparkle series, Opus arrives to the 2019 Indian Gaming show with an array of games designed to deliver big entertainment value. Konami’s SeleXion multi-game technology and Dragon’s Law series even come together for an entirely new Dragon’s Law Opus SeleXion pack in 4K Ultra HD.
“Each slot cabinet in our Concerto collection—from the Opus to standard upright—demonstrates outstanding depth and quality content for attendees to experience first-hand,” Whalen said. “This product line is responsible for the several of the industry’s most popular games nationwide and Konami will continue to innovate the Concerto library to serve properties’ needs.”
Leading product innovations for Konami’s SYNKROS casino management system will also be available for guests to experience through a comprehensive demo environment. Two award-winning mobile solutions are featured: SynkConnect and Synkdot. SynkConnect is Konami’s new “cardless” player tracking convenience, giving players a variety of secure methods to augment or replace a traditional player loyalty card at the EGM, including a personal mobile device, fob, room key and more. Synkdot is a mobile-driven solution for real-time business analytics. In a single glance it gives casino managers and executives a breakdown of the casino’s current status determined by backend performance indicators and metrics. Integrated voice technology by Theatro is also available for demo throughout show hours.

Merkur Gaming Presents Rapid Thunder at NIGA
MerkurGaming US will proudly debut its Rapid Thunder in-game slot bonus feature in Booth #1441 at NIGA. Rapid Thunder is a major addition to Merkur’s products for tribal and commercial land-based casinos.
Rapid Thunder is a five-level, static value, non-progressive jackpot feature and a brand new evolution of Merkur’s successful slot games including Taco Tuesday, Land of Charms, the Asian-themed Immortal Emperor, Immortal Princess and Baozang, together with the Egyptian adventure Amulet of the Pharaoh.
These proven titles now have the added attraction of the entertaining Rapid Thunder, with a fixed top award of $10,000. Merkur Gaming calls the attraction “unique” and “the ultimate in gaming entertainment.”
The Rapid Thunder feature bonus, which has been adapted for all six such games to be shown at NIGA, is a new and exciting gaming innovation. To win the top prize, players must reveal (and automatically capture) Rapid Thunder symbols.
When the Rapid Thunder symbols land on the reels, they leave behind an electrified halo. When a reel is fully covered by halos, the player has completed a Rapid Reel. Two or more Rapid Reels earn the player a Mini Jackpot, three earn a Minor Jackpot, four equal a Major Jackpot, and five equal the Grand Jackpot. Players who select max bet and fill all reels with Rapid Reels win the Max Grand prize of $10,000.
The uniqueness of the game is not limited to the Rapid Reels. Players who earn three Rapid Reels win the Minor and the Mini Jackpot. All Jackpot Prizes are paid when a Rapid Reel is formed. This means that players who hit five Rapid Reels cumulatively win the total of all of the Jackpot Prizes!
The Jackpot Prizes are not all players can win. They’re also playing the exceptional themed Reel games behind that of the Rapid Thunder Bonus.
Also on the Reels are Mini and Minor Jackpot Symbols that hit often, all adding to the players’ excitement. When the players collect many halos, but fall short of making Rapid Reels, Rapid Thunder then pays 1x total bet for each Halo spot that was not part of a Rapid Reel Jackpot win.
In the Merkur tradition, this innovation combines great gaming and high entertainment in one superbly produced package.
