Konami's proven Concerto expands to a diverse lineup of game cabinets spanning multi-game, slant, curved, and more
At this year's London ICE show, Konami Gaming, Inc. displayed their expanding Concerto Collection of core video slots cabinets, including Concerto Slant, Concerto SeleXion multi-game, Concerto Stack single tall screen, and Concerto Crescent single curved screen. They showcased an array of new cabinets and original base game themes to an estimated 28,000 attendees at ICE Totally Gaming in ExCeL London. More than half the games on display included multi-game functionality, across a variety of slot formats that provides casino players with a rich array of game play options.
"Our SeleXion multi-game technology was the centerpiece of this year's ICE show, reaching everything from our new Concerto Slant, to Rapid Revolver, to linked progressive combinations and premium standalone progressive games," said Steve Walther, senior director, marketing & product management. "Four years ago we developed SeleXion in response to feedback from customers looking for a multi-game machine with instant speed and long-term reliability. Now we're bringing that technology to our popular Concerto cabinet for even greater performance potential and we're combining it with high-thrill premium and core progressive products so players can enjoy a rich, immersive gaming experience with a variety of base game options on one machine."
Concerto SeleXion™ is available for upright and slant, each with dual 27-inch HD cinematic displays. It instantly changes between game themes, denominations, currencies, and languages as permissioned, with up to ten new KP3+™ or proven KP3® platform games and the option for a progressive bonus. Also, joining the Concerto™ Collection are two 43-inch single screen cabinets, Konami's tall Concerto Stack™ and curved Concerto Crescent™.
Top game themes that arrived at ICE 2017 for the first time included three new base games with Asian art and design elements: Wealth of Dynasty™, Winning Animals™, and Power of Riches™. Each is compatible with Konami's latest standalone progressive bonus called Cai Lai Si Ji™, and featured at ICE on the Concerto Slant™ cabinet. Other progressives include Smash Smash Festival™ linked bonus, The Treasure Falls™ for Podium Monument™, Volcanic Rush™ for Rapid Revolver™, and Jackpot Ball™ for Concerto upright and Slant.
"Our global customers had full access to a rich array of new game formats and creative game content during ICE 2017 to power their business," said Walther. "The time we share with industry professionals from markets around the world is vitally important and we look forward to sharing our latest advancements, listening to feedback, and building continued collaboration for the coming year."
This year Quentin Sargent, Managing Director and Mike Stein, Operations Director at Signature Gaming attended the show. "Every year London ICE seems to get better, with the advancement in technology and the new and innovative products being launched. It is always a great pleasure to attend the ICE show as it is the primary international Gaming event on the calendar. Our customers are exposed to the latest cabinets, games and themes which are set to be imminently released to the international market," said Quentin.
The show was yet another great success and we would like to thank all the organisers for putting together an amazing event and to everyone who attended and visited the Konami booth.
