Konami Slated to Introduce a Record Number of New Game Themes at G2E 2014
Las Vegas, NV — August 13, 2014
Konami Gaming, Inc., a global leader in casino gaming and systems, announced a preview of cutting-edge products slated for display at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas beginning September 30 to October 2, 2014. As the world’s largest gaming industry trade show event, G2E annually attracts upwards of 25,000 casino gaming executives and professionals to its 250,000+ square foot show floor, where year-by-year Konami’s bold booth exhibit and landmark product launches command widespread attention. This year’s event will feature more than 100 Konami games running its comprehensive SYNKROS casino management system including Konami’s new ROKUREEL® 6-reel product, Inari Riches™ REELEVEN® game title, Engine Ablaze™ standalone progressive, Rapid Blitz Riches™ linked progressive, and more.
“The themes we’ll be presenting at G2E focus on providing maximum flexibility and diversity of product for operators appealing to a wide-range of target markets,” said Matt Reback, vice president, marketing at Konami. “Konami empowers operators to get more from their floor by offering products which provide everything from creative game play mechanics, to cabinet-specific extended features, to system-delivered community gaming, so they can create variety on their floors and leverage successes for the strongest return.”
This fall at G2E, Konami’s latest games will feature its complete video cabinet lineup, including classic Podium® upright/slant, extra-large Podium Goliath® and the tall-top Podium Monument™, so operators can offer a variety of interactive experiences that capitalize on each machine’s unique features and functions.
“Guests at G2E will see how standalone progressives such as the new Engine Ablaze and Pick Strike Quad use Podium Monument’s 32-inch vertical top box to launch high-energy mystery games, and how our 2-level Gigantic Wheel of Winning reveals a 3D mystery prize wheel across both of Podium Goliath’s oversized monitors,” explained Reback. “Our cabinets offer flexibility with a vast library of proven, high-performing themes that players love and operators trust. We’ll have numerous examples of this throughout our booth, but most notably at the Dungeons & Dragons showcase display and by way of a major upcoming announcement surrounding classic Konami amusement IP.”
Another high-profile release that gaming professionals won’t want to miss is the new Slot Dispatching on KONAMI’s SYNKROS® Konetic Mobile Employee App™. This iOS and Android-compatible mobile application harnesses the advantage of SYNKROS’ real-time data capabilities to empower casino personnel to discover and respond to customer needs immediately for optimal service and efficiency.
“Our all-new Slot Dispatching delivers EGM alerts and service requisitions to slot attendants and technicians in a moment’s time, from anywhere on the property. Every year we’re expanding SYNKROS into previously unexplored facets of gaming enterprise management based on our operational experience and the feedback of our customers. Anyone who hasn’t seen SYNKROS in action should definitely plan to come check out the very latest tools, features and functions for casino marketing and operations,” Reback said.
Attendees are encouraged to visit booth number 1154 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center from September 30 through October 2, 2014 to explore these and more important new Konami releases. For more information about Konami Gaming, Inc., please visit www.konamigaming.com.
