Astăzi am primit pe adresa redacției, așa cum ne-am obișnuit deja, Comunicatul de Presă al companiei NOVOMATIC AG.
De data aceasta Comunicatul se referă la participarea grupului de firme la expoziția Global Gaming Expo (G2E) de la Las Vegas, Nevada.
Din chiar titlul Comunicatului compania Novomatic salută complet noul concept al expoziției G2E din Las Vegas, transformat radical atât datorită alegerii unei noi perioade de desfășurare (4-6 octombrie) cât și datorită schimbării locației (Sands Expo & Convention Center).
Directorul General al Austrian Gaming Industries GmbH (AGI), companie subsidiară a Novomatic AG, domnul Jens Halle, declara, anticipând ediția din acest an a G2E de la Las Vegas, că: „Mutarea G2E la o data de la începutul lunii octombrie are sens și totodată lasă o perioada mai mare până la expozitia ICE din ianuarie de la Londra” și în continuare, referindu-se la participarea Novomatic AG, spunea: „Suntem deosebit de încântați de inovațiile produselor și de soluțiile sistemelor pe care le vom prezenta la Las Vegas așa încât deabia așteptăm să-i întâmpinăm pe clienții noștri, partenerii noștri de afaceri și pe ceilalți vizitatori, la standul Novomatic, ca să vadă cu ochii lor conceptul nostru de ‘world of gaming entertainment'”.
Comunicatul prezintă și produsele ce vor fi expuse la expoziția G2E de la Las Vegas.
Din nefericire Comunicatul de Presă ne-a parvenit după intrarea ediției cu numărul 25 august/septembrie în tipar așa încât nu a putut fi parte a cuprinsului revistei noastre, Casino Life & Business Magazine.
În continuare vă prezentăm integral cuprinsul Comunicatului de Presă.
„Novomatic welcomes the all new G2E
With a new, and much welcomed, early date and a new venue, the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) takes place this year from October 4th to 6th at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas. With the additional logistical challenge of the show’s move to a new venue the major exhibitors will be going all out to establish a significant presence: foremost among them Novomatic and its Austrian Gaming Industries (AGI) and Octavian subsidiaries on booth 2654 present a spectacular range of gaming entertainment innovations and system solutions that are guaranteed to thrill and excite the international audience.
AGI’s exciting NOVOSTAR® SL2 slant top has become a major attraction on gaming floors around the world and will feature heavily at G2E. Instantly recognisable and with key features such as its unique Flip Screen Feature, which allows the player to switch the action from upper to lower screen with one button push – even in mid game – and secondary, footrest mounted start button; the NOVOSTAR® SL2 is the king of slant top cabinets. Also on show at G2E will be the Super-V+ Gaminator® and Novo Super-Vision™ cabinets; equipped with AGI’s flexible and proven multi-game solutions across the cabinet range and, thanks to an ever-expanding choice of stunning video game combinations, guaranteeing the utmost flexibility for the casino. In Las Vegas visitors will be thrilled by a range of all new Coolfire™ II game releases implemented in the latest gripping Super-V+ Gaminator® multi-game mixes.NOVOSTAR SL2
A further attraction in Las Vegas will be a selection of Ultimate™ 10 multi-game mixes. This growing range of multi-game mixes is based on the Coolfire™ I+ gaming platform and is available in the popular Gaminator® cabinet. The Coolfire™ I+ platform combines the technological benefits of Coolfire™ II with the hugely cost effective price structure of the former Coolfire™ I platform: offering new technology within an extremely attractive cost structure for maximum value.
Another sure ‘must see’ for visitors in Las Vegas will be an expanded range of promotional attractions. AGI will show its new REEL TOURNAMENT™, that offers guests live tournament play in real time on an unlimited of linked Super-V+ Gaminator® machines. The system’s tournament controller makes it possible for the operator to choose from a variety of games and to offer different win modes, tournament settings and valuable promotional extras. From Octavian comes the mystery progressive jackpot theme WILD NIGHTS™ that will thrill casino guests with an inspiring party tour through Europe’s most romantic cities for a ‘reel good’ time. Community Gaming is a new and vibrant attraction for international casinos and AGI will present BANK BLASTER™ in Las Vegas, challenging guests to ‘Team Up and Win’ in this safe-cracking Community Jackpot.WILD NIGHTS BANK BLASTER
Significantly, server-based gaming will be a topic at the Novomatic booth in Las Vegas with the NOVOLINE™ system comprising all aspects of modern server based gaming in unison: NOVOLINE™ VLT (Video Lottery Terminals) and NOVOLINE™ GDS (Games Download System) allow operators to design their own game mixes with the preferred choice of games that ideally meet the preferences of their guests in every location.
System technology is a ‘driving force’ for any casino’s gaming floor, and Octavian, as well as proudly presenting jackpot solutions such as WILD NIGHTS™, will be on hand at G2E to demonstrate the casino management system ACP (Accounting Control Progressives System). The ACP system is modular and thus highly ‘tuneable’ to the requirements of both the operator and pertaining regulations. The system’s ‘add-on’ functions include TITO, Cashless and Player Loyalty and has proved an extremely attractive ‘package solution’ for discerning operators.
Together with a NOVOLINE Novo Unity™ II multiplayer presentation; featuring a classic range of electronic table games all in one system and with each game instantly available on the individually linked individual player stations, the Novomatic G2E presence in Las Vegas will offer the ultimate in gaming entertainment innovation. As the pre-show excitement builds Novomatic will be going all out to ensure that ‘Novomatic Leads, Others Follow’.NOVOLINE NovoUnity II NOVOLINE NovoUnity II with NOVO SL I
AGI’s Managing Director, Jens Halle is among those eagerly anticipating this year’s G2E. He said: „The move by G2E to an early October date makes perfect sense and also creates a much better gap until January’s ICE in London. We are excited by the new product innovations and system solutions that we will show in Las Vegas and so I look forward to welcoming customers, business partners and guests to the Novomatic booth to see our ‘world of gaming entertainment’ for themselves.”
