US.- Yesterday began the Global Gaming Expo 2016 in Las Vegas, where Konami is showcasing its unprecedented product diversity at booth #1154. Visitors can experience never-before seen technology for casinos, including the next generation skill-based products, multi-station games and premium slots.

The renowned casino gaming manufacturer presented its innovative video arcade and amusement ingenuity, which includes Castlevania themed slots, Crystal Cyclone multi-station progressive, Fortune Cup video-mechanical horse racing, Frogger: Get Hoppin’ skill-based game, and Beat Square DJ-style skill-based game—all with clear roots to Konami’s popular video arcade and amusement heritage. Furthermore, attendees at the G2E are able to experience first-hand Konami’s latest casino core product innovations, systems technology updates, iGaming solutions and more.

“With everything including skill-based, multi-station, premium IP, horse racing, and top-performing core, Konami is supporting the industry with an unprecedented diversity of gaming technology to advance both the immediate and long-term casino landscape. Industry response to the expanding Concerto collection and these incredible new concepts has been outstanding. Our casino customers have expressed interest in an expanded lineup of core products as well as innovative next generation products, and our R&D team has brought these latest developments to life with the quality and creativity that Konami is known for in the industry landscape” said Matt Reback, vice president, marketing at Konami.

During the G2E, Konami is introducing for the first time two new multi-station games. The first one is the Fortune Cup that uniquely combines mechanical detail with engaging customer interaction through an intuitive touchscreen interface. The second is a multi-station progressive called Crystal Cyclone with a colorful, high-energy center mechanical bonus game that can simultaneously bring all players into the bonus action jackpot. Players, clients and visitors can also enjoy a music-infused Frogger road and river crossing game called Frogger: Get Hoppin’, a rhythmic DJ-style game called Beat Square, and a skill-stop VIP premium game called Hot Press Winnings.

Also stemming from its strong digital gaming entertainment heritage, Konami’s Castlevania is making a debut landing at G2E 2016 on the all new Concerto Crescent™ curved cabinet—one among several machines featured in the Concerto collection. “Castlevania signals another iconic Konami IP release that we’re thrilled to bring to casinos around the world, with a truly captivating delivery on Concerto Crescent’s high-definition display,” said Reback. “It’s a powerful demonstration of Konami’s continued strength in creative game animation, bonus effects, and play mechanics, across our robust core product library.”

Konami is showcasing its award-winning and highly acclaimed Synkros casino management system, including its latest addition, Synkros Dashboards. “Konami’s core gaming roots hold firm in entertainment, amusement, and arcades. The technology and development resources we have in America, Australia, and Japan are best-of-breed, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring those advancements to the casino gaming realm in new ways during this year’s G2E. Konami has the core creative power to bring new variations of gambling entertainment to the market so our casino customers can offer their diverse player groups an array of gaming options,” concluded Reback.
