North Wales: Seaside ridin N

orth Wales seaside towns: the difference £43m could make A £43m funding bid is aimed at continuing the economic regeneration of Conwy. The council wants £14.3m through the Welsh Government’s Vibrant and Viable places fund towards finishing the job of regenerating Colwyn Bay, which has already had multi-million pound investments at Parc Eirias and on the waterfront. If successful it would go towards a £43m package for the whole county. Schemes include having thousands more tons of sand dumped on a 1.2 mile section of the beach between the pier and Rhos-on-Sea. It follows the success of the non-tidal beach at Porth Eirias, which increased

footfall in the town by 5 per cent. Rob Dix, head of business and enterprise at Conwy council, said: “In Colwyn Bay we have used the investment at Parc Eirias and the waterfront along with big ticket events to help with the regeneration of the town. We have to keep up this momentum. It would be a shame to stop now.” Dix concluded: “The beach has been a success and this would extend it in the direction of Rhos. This would provide sea defence as well as supporting regeneration. This will be backed with private sector investment, and we are negotiating a number of key investments in Colwyn Bay.” Dr Jan Green, Business Department, Glyndr University,

Britain continues to be attrac TOURISM

A year after Britain hosted some of the largest events in the worl the UK’s key export growth markets, as the latest figures from th first half of 2013 seeing record levels in spend and the strongest ritain is still a great place to B visit, according to the latest International Passenger Survey. The positive results confirmed that in the first half of 2013 Britain attracted 15.2m visitors (+4 per cent). Spend across this period was a record £8.7bn (+11 per cent). Over 2.89m overseas visitors were welcomed in June alone,up 12 per cent compared with last June. Expenditure over the same period saw overseas visitors spend a total of £1.84bn, an increase of 13 per cent from June 2012.This was also a new high, up 8 per cent on the existing June record set in 2011. June seems to be the month for breaking records with 1.22m holiday visits, 17 per cent up on the previous year followed by a new all-time record for the first six months of 2012 (2 per cent). The first time June has seen over 0.5m visits from ‘Rest of

World’ markets (+18 per cent) points to another new record and means figures are now 11 per cent higher in the first half of 2013. Double digit growth from high volume and loyal EU15 markets continue with 14 per cent more visits from this part of the world compared to June 2012. Keith Beecham, overseas director at VisitBritain said:“This is the second consecutive month we have seen record visits and spend, while the first six months of the year have also delivered a record.In June the UK welcomed more than a visitor every single second (67 overseas visitors a minute). If this trend continues it would see us welcome one overseas visitor every second of every day of every week of every month of the year.This is great news for the economy and a further sign that tourism is delivering growth across the country. “Particularly encouraging is

The service sector, regeneration cash and its location at the heart of North Wales are the main factors which can positively influence the economy of Conwy, according to the council. To this end, the area has bid for funding to help boost footfall to its seaside businesses which include several amusement arcades and FECs. onwy Borough in North Wales, which includes the coin-op strongholds Llandudno, Colwyn Bay and Abergele, has applied for £43m from theWelsh Government’s Vibrant and Viable places fund with a view to attracting additional tourists and boosting the area’s economy. Plans to attract additional tourists include a proposed surf centre in the Conwy Valley while a £43m funding bid could see Colwyn Bay’s non-tidal beach extended and the promenade upgraded. In Llandudno,for example,visitor numbers and retail occupation rates are holding up despite the challenge from internet shopping and visitors’ lack of disposable income. Rob Dix, head of business and enterprise at Conwy Council, said: “Services and tourism are key sectors in the county and both are in a position to grow in coming years. There is a lot of confidence in Llandudno in retail and tourism.We have a retail occupation rate of 92 per cent which compares with affluent areas in the South East of England.In tourism, Llandudno is such a unique destination, it is best in class on a European basis with good accommodation and on the doorstep of Snowdonia. The county can also offer as good a package as anywhere in outdoor activities, with facilities

C

like Tree Tops in Betws-y-Coed and plans for a £25m investment in a surf centre in Dolgarrog. If that comes to fruition it will bring new visitors to the area.” Mike Learmond, from the Federation of Small Businesses, stated:“As far as Conwy is concerned, I certainly can sense a change of mood among our membership in the county.But while it is clear that small firms are more confident about the coming months there is no doubt

that conditions remain difficult.The blight of empty shops is still affecting town centres, but I do now feel a cautious optimism for the future.” Sean Taylor, who runs Tree Top Adventure, Betws-y-Coed, said:“We are ahead of other counties in managing and promoting the tourism offer here. The council are proactive at working with the private sector but people need to ask for help rather than just sit their complaining. “The proposed surf centre in the Conwy Valley would be a win-win for everyone, bringing more people to the region with restaurants,shops and accommodation providers benefiting. It would add to the unique facilities we already have in Snowdonia, like Zip World, it would help give North Wales an edge over the Lake District. It is though up to all providers to keep up the quality of the offer here.In terms of what more could be done then fast broadband and wi-fi would be a great help. People now expect wi-fi when they come here.Improved signage would also help.” Arcade and FEC owners in seaside resort towns Abergele, Colwyn Bay and Llandudno will be hoping that the investment comes sooner rather than later.

Mersich reflects on a year of positive change OVERVIEW

More than 12 months have passed since the formation of the Astra Gaming Group (the wholly owned UK subsidiary of Austrian Gaming Industries GmbH, part of the Novomatic Group). The group’s CEO, Zane Mersich, has reflected on the positive progress that has been made during that period.

he Astra Gaming Group is now a year into the process of integrating its respective brands, and its CEO Zane Mersich believes that it has already proven to be a tremendous success for all concerned. He told Coinslot: “With any big transition it’s safe to say there will always be challenges along the way. But our people have met those challenges positively and professionally. And, most encouragingly, there is a genuine pride in the ethos of our business.Of course,it has been a tough year from an industry and business viewpoint, notably for the arcade and pub sectors, but also a good year in terms of the integration and the coming together of the businesses to form the Astra Gaming Group.” Mersich believes that one of the most pleasing

T

aspects to emerge from the last 12 months is the way Astra has been able to combine all of its brands, yet allow them to remain masters of their own destiny.He explained:“As a result, we are able to encourage a more autonomous way of doing business, but not at the risk of compromising cohesion across the group. Inevitably, that has prompted more joined up thinking between our brands and there is a clear understanding that every one of our companies must stand on its own two feet from a financial perspective. There’s also combined thinking from a group point of view.We are able to leverage off our strengths and ultimately that means we can provide the very best products and services.” Another high point in Mersich’s considered opinion has been the perform-

casino gaming content - the very best casino branded games which are successful in casinos all over the world – into the street market, bingo halls, arcades and pubs. We are taking games that are phenomenally successful in the European casino segment and integrating them into the UK AWP market.There isn’t another company in the UK that can replicate that to the extent we can.”

ance of Astra’s staff and the ‘tremendous value’ it has among the various teams that have come on board. He revealed:“Throughout all of our brands we have experts within all of their individual areas and some fantastic personalities. We’re proud to be an organisation that world-class individuals aspire to associate themselves with and are proud to have that association. We have a fantastic group of talented individuals who are single-mindedly pursuing customer satisfaction and player delight. They are fighting the good fight on a daily basis to ensure that our products are without peer.” Being an integral part of the Novomatic group of companies means that Astra has access to a high level of support on R&D. Mersich stated:“All of our technology and products

Currency credibility underpins our business and our relationship with Cummins Allison is central to ensuring that our integrity is maintained as the technologies in coin production and counterfeit detection progress to new levels.”

has been successful in gaining funding through the Community First Programme to put up attractive fencing around the old Teddy’s nightclub site. The move will come as good news to the owners of Withernsea’s four nearby arcades and FECs. Colourful panels titled Celebrate Withernsea are now in place on new fencing to hide the old Teddy’s nightclub site. Funded through the Community Development Foundation and East Riding of Yorkshire Council, the panels have brought a boost of colour to the promenade, making this area of the promenade

safer and brighter. The move should encourage both locals and visitors to enjoy a walk along the South Promenade and visit local amusement arcades such as Fantasy Island Amusements, Game King, Smiles for Miles and W & J Shaws Pastimes. The artwork can be reused to improve the look of other development sites around the town and aims to reinforce community spirit and confidence that Withernsea is a good place to invest in. Positive moves to improve the town continue after the Royal visit as local shops and pubs have been taking pride in their frontages. Holderness Community Partnership has organised three beach cleans on the

main public beach with volunteers giving up a couple of hours each time. Events such as the recent Pirate Festival, Summertime Special and Carnival that attract large numbers of both visitors and residents have given the town a welcome footfall increase. Councillor Arthur Hodgson, chair of the Withernsea & South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership, said: “This is a much needed improvement to the promenade and I am delighted that partnership working can make physical improvements to the town.”

LEGISLATION

The Irish government recently published the General Scheme of the Gambling Control Bill, which anticipates the introduction of a new regulator and a new licensing regime and one of the country’s leading law firms has offered an advisory hand to those with an interest in the sector. he publishing of both the General Scheme of a Gambling Control Bill and a revised draft of the Betting (Amendment) Bill 2013 in July confirms that the Irish government intends to introduce extensive reforms in the area of gambling regulation. Law firm LK Shields has issued some words of advice to individuals and firms wishing to take advantage of the updated legislation. The Committee on Jus-

T

tice, Defence and Equality has invited interested parties to make submissions regarding the Scheme to the Committee by 30 August 2013.The Committee is made up of parliamentary representatives from various political parties, and it will report to the Irish government.The Committee will consider all submissions and will report on its findings.The General Scheme of the Gambling Control Bill has been provided to the

Attorney General’s Office so that a bill can be drafted for the Government’s consideration. A bill is expected to be produced in 2014, taking account of those recommendations of the Committee which the Irish Government decides to take on board. Deirdre Kilroy, partner and head of intellectual property and technology from law firm LK Shields, stated:“I encourage those with an interest in the gambling sector in Ireland,

especially those likely to be licence holders and operators of gambling services under the new rules, to familiarise themselves with the Scheme of the Gambling Control Bill. Making a submission to the Committee is a good way for a stakeholder to influence the content of the legislation, or to voice a concern or a preference.” The firm has published a short article regarding the General Scheme on its website.

Kilroy added: “If you would like assistance in preparing a submission to the Committee, we would be pleased to assist you.” It is likely that the Gambling Control Bill will be progressed by the Irish Government in mid to late 2014.The revised Betting (Amendment) Bill 2013 was notified to the EU Commission on 18 July 2013 and is now subject to a “standstill period” which ends on 21 October 2013.

New venue brings video amusements back to London

18 This week’s machine charts

VIDEO

Many thought the closure of the Trocadero’s Funland FEC had signalled an end to video amusements in Britain’s towns and cities. A new arcade in London is proving those naysayers wrong.

19 he success of a newlyopened venue in London with its own unique concept has proved that the humble amusement arcade still has life beyond the seaside resort. Consisting entirely of video cabinets, Heart of Gaming has developed its own pricing formula in a bid to attract a community of regular customers, eschewing the coinslot and instead charging from £5 a session for unlimited play. Heart of Gaming owner Mark Starkey, an amusement industry veteran, spent two years collecting and repairing its video cabinets, many of which were sourced when the Trocadero centre’s Funland FEC closed down two years ago. He explained his new ethos in video gaming: “The traditional idea is gone. It’s not enough to have the latest titles in the latest machines - you have to give gamers some kind of community. “It’s the aspect of socially interacting with like-minded people who are as passionate about a video game as you are.

T

Many of my friends I made in the arcade era through going out and just meeting different people. Now,the whole online thing of people just sitting in their bedroom with their headsets on has really kind of killed that. It’s very faceless.” The community minded aspect of Heart of Gaming has proved a hit.With 200 attending its opening night launch, the arcade now has a regular customer base and attracts around 40 regulars on a Friday night. Starkey pointed to a multitude of reasons why the inland video amusement arcade scene had declined, but said the failure of coin-op to tackle the challenge of home games consoles was the real killer. He commented:“Nobody’s going to come out of their house to pay 50p, £1 or £2 a go on a machine anymore; it’s a lot easier to just go home, turn on your PS3 and play online. But if you can give someone an entire day’s worth of gaming for a set sum, you’re giving them value for money and letting them play with friends at their leisure.”

CAPTION: THE SOCIAL NETWORK: HEART OF GAMING HAS ESTABLISHED A COMMUNITY OF LOYAL PLAYERS

Another Heart of Gaming USP is the range of its video games, catering for all ages of player. For younger gamers, there is a twin Dance Dance Revolution/In The Groove dancing stage setup, while for retro gamers there is everything from Frogger and Space Invaders to Streetfighter II Turbo and House of the Dead. “There really isn’t anywhere else like it, somewhere that encapsulates arcades from all points of time,” said Starkey. “The arcade era is a very specific thing. Because it

spans 30-something years, you’ve got people experiencing their personal high and low at different points. “Someone in their early 40s isn’t going to want to come in and play Dance Dance Revolution or the latest Street Fighter - they’re going to want to play Pac-Man or Donkey Kong or Space Invaders. It’s all very periodic, it’s gone through changes and it’s evolved over the years.Video games have become like films, where some of them are quite timeless.” SEPTEMBER 6 - SEPTEMBER 12, 2013

Skegness hits back over deprivation claims REPORT RESPONSE

authorities have responded after Skegness Lwasocal named as the most deprived seaside resort in England in a report compiled by the Office for National Statistics. The Lincolnshire resort, famous for being the birthplace of Butlins, and nearby Ingoldmells were found to have deprivation levels nearly two and a half times greater than the national average. East Lindsey District Councillor Craig Leyland hit back at the findings, saying that

Skegness still retained its popularity amongst British holidaymakers. He commented: “Skegness and Ingoldmells are home to a bustling tourism industry and remain some of the most popular visitor destinations, with millions of visitors coming to the area,” Colin Davie, executive member for economic development for Lincolnshire County Council, said it would use the report to highlight the situation to the government and encourage it to invest

more in the area. Davie also said LCC had invested significantly in Skegness and Ingoldmells, which in turn had helped attract EU funding for a wide range of projects aimed at improving the two resorts. He commented: “We are currently spending £50m in improving broadband countywide, which includes a £300,000 investment in wireless technology in Ingoldmells. We also won £200,000 of Coastal Community Funding, and led an ERDF-funded

Essential Guide to... Category B3 Raising the bar New Category B3 gaming legislation came into play on July 12, 2011, increasing the maximum individual stake to £2 and marking a change in the number of permitted B3 machines to a maximum of 20 per cent of an operators’ estate. Maximum prize levels remain at £500.

Opportunity knocks

Bookies adopt B3

Key support for B3

Since the implementation of the new Category B3 gaming law, many operators have noted a significant increase in the average stake and dwell time across many popular platforms.

While the new B3 gaming legislation has, to a certain extent, enabled operators of AGCs and bingo halls to better compete with bookmakers for business on the high street, LBOs themselves are also taking advantage of the B3 uplift. Last year, bookmaker William Hill said it is “already making use of this change on the gaming machines” across its retail estate.

Baroness Patricia Rawlings of the Conservative Party remains a key supporter of the B3 gaming sector. “Category B gaming machines are an intrinsic part of the business model and generate significant levels of revenue,” she said during the 2011 consultancy.

FIRST WORD

LEGISLATION

Two years on: B3 still going strong n July 2011, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Iimplemented an increase in stake

Spin to win: B3 gaming keeps the players coming back Praesepe continues to generate solid income streams from the latest Category B3 gaming titles. Nigel Davis, head of machines for the group, discusses the importance of the sector in today’s AGC and bingo environment. The change from AMLD to MGD has allowed us to maximise our B3 numbers where in the past the fixed cost of AMLD was a deterrent.While the B3 sector still generates the majority of income, new prize levels for Category C games will,I believe,complement B3 gaming and provide a source of entertainment for players who are more accustomed to the B3 genre. When it comes to game design,you cannot escape the fact that what I would call the ‘Lucky Irish’ themed games are as popular as ever. Luck of The Irish (Blueprint) and Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold (Barcrest) are amongst some of our top titles. Free spin games, where the player makes little or no decisions other than what stake, also feature highly in our league table. Proba-

bly the most successful within this latter group is Project’s Mega Bars Big Hit. B3 machines attract players with a higher budget. However, what we find is that they will also sample both Category C and even Category D games.A Category C player will also play Category D and a Category D player gains his/her enjoyment almost exclusively from lower stake gaming. From our perspective the points of difference are more about geography than sector. Games which work in our London venues - such as Magic Lotto II from Novomatic - might not work in Scotland for instance.Make no doubt that some areas of Britain are much more stake sensitive than others and, in turn, we NIGEL DAVIS; PRAESEPE

have to be sensitive to this.That said, the emergence of community B3 games appear to have a following in bingo but more due to the enhanced footfall in clubs rather than anything specific to the bingo player base. I think people tend to overlook how much the weather impacts business. Clearly, the recent sustained temperatures in excess of 30 degrees are virtually unheard of in the UK, and it certainly impacted footfall. Even our FEC estate found trading difficult, with visitors staying on the beach all day. Despite these uncontrollables, we ‘weathered the storm’and I’m pleased to say,that like for like we are trading above last year.The focus is now on making a real push in the autumn and winter months confident in the knowledge that we have the best team in gaming, many of the best venues and of course the best partnerships with our colleagues in the manufacturing sector.”

for B3 gaming machines to £2 and changed the number of B3 gaming machines permitted in adult gaming centres (AGC) and bingo premises. Following the successful lobbying by BACTA and key industry stakeholders, AGC and bingo premises are entitled to make available a number of Category B gaming machines not exceeding 20 per cent of the total number of gaming machines which are available for use on the premises. Following the implementation of the legislation, licensed AGC and bingo premises in existence before July 13, 2011, were entitled to make available four (AGCs) or eight (bingo) Category B gaming machines, or 20 per cent of the total number of gaming machines, whichever is the greater. AGC and bingo premises licences granted on or after July 13, 2011, but before April 1, 2014, are entitled to a maximum of four or eight Category B gaming machines or 20 per cent of the total number of gaming machines, whichever is the greater; from April 1, 2014, these premises will be entitled to 20 per cent of the total number of gaming machines only.

Essential Guide to ... Category B3 Sector Overview SWOT ANALYSIS

More to the B3 genre than meets the eye As much as Cat C games are the staple diet of pub coin-op, the same could be said of B3 machines when it comes to the bingo and AGC sectors. With Cat B3 products making up as much as 20 per cent of the total gaming machines in any AGC, their success is vital to the profits of all high street operations. ith the B3 sector being as established as it is - in other words, an expected and familiar feature of both adult gaming centres and bingo halls - it is no wonder that the genre has become fragmented.With manufacturers looking to make B3 machines (maximum stake £2, maximum payout £500) as competitive as possible since section 16/21 products were phased out, the format has a number of different guises all competing for operators’ attention. In addition to the straightforward industry standard single game, single player machine, a number of variants have emerged with a view to increasing visual impact and giving the player more choice. Since the 2011 stake/prize uplift, three player versions with a single rear promotional display intended for wall positioning have made an impact,as have three and four game compendiums, making use of video technology. Meanwhile, visitors to LBOs will have noticed that certain games which have proven successfully in that environment have found their way onto B3 games in bingo halls and AGCs. Furthermore, a trend of releasing B3 versions of successful Cat C games has also permeated the market, making the B3 sector one of coin-op’s liveliest and most creative. Nowadays, AGCs can position Cat B3/B4 gaming machines so long as they don’t exceed 20 per cent of the total number of gaming machines which are available for use on the premises.AGCs in existence before 13 July 2011 can offer four category B3/B4 gaming machines, or

W

Coinslot SEPTEMBER 6 - SEPTEMBER 12, 2013

20 per cent of the total number of gaming machines, whichever is the greater. Alternatively,AGC premises licences granted on or after 13 July 2011 but before 1 April 2014 are entitled to a maximum of four category B3/B4 gaming machines or 20 per cent of the total number of gaming machines, whichever is the greater.From 1 April 2014,however, these premises will be entitled to 20 per cent of the total number of gaming machines only.While from an operational point of view such restrictions are a source of frustration, the angle that manufacturers and distributors have had to take is that they must up the ante in terms of compelling gameplay content in order to compete for that vital portion of the arcade floor. The B3 sector was in the news recently when the Gambling Commission reminded operators that gaming machines offering games presented as recognised games of chance, such as roulette or blackjack, must be transparent in informing players where those games differ from their ‘real’ equivalents. This followed a case in which a category B3 game which was presented and described as a random roulette game when that was not the case.The game was found to be operating under game rules that were different to the equivalent real game of roulette.This was not made clear to players. The Commission considered this to be a potential breach of the gaming machine technical standards and contrary to ensuring gambling is conducted in a fair

and open way. Following intervention by the Commission,the operator concerned to his credit quickly made amendments to the game. While such news could be seen as overzealousness on behalf of the Commission, it could also be construed as a message that the UK’s game developers are keen to push the envelope when it comes to Cat B game creation. While the industry has had to suffer some depressing times in recent years, the B3 sector has provided coin-op machine manufacturers and distributors with a serious growth opportunity. It’s rare that any coin-op firm would admit that they haven’t experienced success in a certain sector, or that they were unhappy with the numbers they were shifting, but when it comes to the bingo sector for example, coin-op gaming has undergone a period of growth - and there are official statistics to bear out this assertion. According to the most recent Gambling Commission Annual Statistics, there were 2,247 adult gaming centres in March 2012 and 646 bingo halls, and in the latter sector only Cat B4 machines suffered a small drop in the period 20082011, while Cat B3, Cat C and Cat D machines all saw an uplift. Of course, in that time frame, bingo halls were permitted additional Cat B3 machines, but the fact remains that opportunities for promoting Cat B3 machines to two very different demographics (visitors to AGCs and bingo club-goers) are many and varied.

SWOT ANALYSIS B3 MACHINES STRENGTHS

OPPORTUNITIES

•Latest uplift presents a better proposition, encouraging gamers to visit AGCs and bingo halls, and increasing competitiveness with bookmakers on the high street •The most familiar brands and games from Cat C and some from B2 have translated well onto B3 •New B3 machines inevitably attract customers, while at the other end of the spectrum conversion kits are easy to install and a cheaper option for cash-strapped operators

• Most recent £2 stake has helped game designers to be more creative, making more attractive games and enhancing the overall gameplay experience • Multi-stake options and bonus features allow the B3 sector to cater to a broad range of player demographics • B3’s only restriction is in terms of stakes and prizes, so different styles of machines and content are always possible

WEAKNESSES

• Direct competition comes from FOBTs with higher staking levels • Like all coin-op genres, competition for discretionary spend from LBOs, internet gaming sites and smartphone content

•Restrictions on numbers permitted to be sited at a single location •Uncertainty regarding what the Triennial may bring

‘Without Category B3, business would not be viable for AGC operators’ While Category B3 products have helped keep people in arcades, the AGC sector needs a new genre of machines to maintain competition against High Street bookmakers, according to Jason Frost, owner of Liskeard Leisure.

BARCREST’S MONEY MAD MARTIANS IS PROVING POPULAR IN LISKEARD LEISURE’S AGC VENUES

Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if the industry had not got Category B3 machines. I don’t know where we would be without them. Section 16 was very good for the industry, but we really are only taking the same money that we were 10 years ago. Without B3 we would be in a perilous situation.With the £100 stake Category B2 machines in bookmakers on the high street, things are heavily weighted in their favour - especially now that they can operate B3 content on them as well. I don’t know how long we will be able to remain competitive with the bookmakers, given that only they can have that type of product. When the government removed the £2 stake on Section 16 and dropped it down to £1, a lot of our customers were able to go straight into their local bookmakers and continue to play for £2 per spin. Not only that, they also had the opportunity to switch over to roulette and other casinostyle games and play for £100 a spin, and that was the nail in the coffin for us.When the £2 was reinstated we had already lost a large percentage of our clientele to the bookmakers, who had converted them from B3 players to roulette games on Category B2. Without Category B3, business would not be viable for AGC operators.They have helped to keep players in the arcades, but unfortunately I feel that our player base is diminishing because every time a new game is released for Category B3 in arcades,

if it doesn’t appear on a B2 machine straight away it will still be there very shortly after. The one thing that we really need is our specific product forAGCs and over-18 areas at seaside FECs.There has been talk in the past of a higher jackpot, but I think we are happy with £500.We need a stake that we can compete on. Our multi-stake machines run from 25p to £2 - I think this should increase up to £20. I have all the latest Barcrest machines. Lots of manufacturers have tried to bring out Category B3 roulette games, but with the parameters that our games designers are allowed to work within we can never compete with those on Category B2. Category B3 community games seem very exciting, and I think they will only get better. We have seen that it does exactly what it says on the box. Games such as Barcrest’s Money Mad Martians and Star Wars form a sense community and get players playing alongside each other and with each other, with the ultimate goal of one of activating the feature, which means they all get the feature.We see customers chatting to each other, which is something that we have lost over the years. Progressive jackpots have also proved a big winner with our customers.They are always heavily favour a machine that has them over one that doesn’t.Customers that play Category B3 machines know what they are doing.They are not casual players, so they like to see innovations like this on the games they play.”

BINGO OPERATIONS

Mecca looks to enhance the customer experience Mohammed Zabed, head of slots for Mecca Bingo, explains why the B3 sector remains an important part the bingo gaming product mix. oinslot: Was trading for Mecca’s bingo venues affected by the particuC larly hot summer period? Mohammed Zabed:As we announced in our recent financial results announcement, the recent hot weather has adversely impacted trading in the first weeks of our new financial year. However, in the last 12 months we have been encouraged by the increase in the number of younger customers visiting our clubs, up six per cent during the

period, and the continued growth of our digital business, which grew by 10 per cent. Our focus for the coming year is to build Mecca as a brand, with customers ‘coming to play at our house’ wherever and whenever they choose - whether that’s in club, online or on their mobile devices. CS: It is now more than two years since the Category B3 stake/machine number legislation came into force. How is the sector performing? MZ:The B3 sector continues to perform well for Mecca and they are very popular with our slots customers. However, we can never rest on our laurels and we continually look to enhance their experience by improving content mix, variety, themes, value and features.

CS: What are the current strongest performing B3 products and why do you think this is? MZ:At Mecca we want to ensure that we have a broad and continually improving product mix rather than being reliant on any one product.We carry out extensive customer research, which shows that the key features desired by our customers include brand recognition, simplicity, stake and ease of play. CS: Are you happy with the stake and prize level in general? MZ: Our main priority is about being able to offer our customers as much choice and variety as possible. Our research has shown us that our customers do like features such as Mega Spin, which we are currently not allowed to offer at the same

level as operators in other gaming sectors . CS: Is there an ideal formula behind Cat C and Cat B3 product mix? Do B3 machines attract a different demographic to, say, Cat C? MZ:There isn’t a magic formula as such, because every club is unique and one-sizefits-all is certainly not the strategy we adopt. However, Mecca has successfully introduced hybrid terminals with both category C and B3 content on the same machine and we are seeing more of our customers are making the transition between Category C and B3 games, which is very positive step change. I also believe we are narrowing the gap between purely B3 player and those who only play Category C machines because of the flexibility of having a choice of content, stake and category all within the same terminal.

inets and remains the exclusive supplier of Amatic Industries and JVL Gaming products in the UK and Ireland. “We have been supplying Amatic equipment in the UK for around 15 years,” Bierrum told Coinslot.“The company’s range of products has been very well received and is gaining popularity.” As one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of casino and gaming equipment, Bierrum said Amatic’s products stand out from the crowd in the UK market, providing

that all-important ‘wow’ factor when compared to more traditional machines. “The B3 customer is moving to a more mature gaming environment,” he said. “They want much more technologically advanced machines.You can see this in the proliferation of digital, video-based gaming products in casinos and upmarket AGCs, such as those operated by Talarius, Rank and Praesepe.We are definitely moving toward this type of income stream.” Bierrum added:“One key advantage of Amatic terminals is that they are designed for casinos.Therefore, they have to be able to run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Some of the older, more traditional cabinet designs literally can’t stand the heat.” AMATIC INDUSTRIES: THE MASTERS OF MULTIGAME

Amatic Industries is a family-owned company that specialises in two major fields: slots and electronic roulette.The company was founded in 1993 by Reinhold Bauer, a veteran in the gaming industry, who had previously amassed many years of experience and company management. Amatic was set up to focus specifically on the gaming industry. Based in Austria, in the heart of Europe, the company is ideally placed to support the many diverse country requirements around the region. Today, Amatic Industries markets its products and solutions globally. Each year the company takes a large stand at the ICE exhibition in London to underline its international presence across various sectors, including amusement with prize (AWP), video lottery terminals (VLTs), server-based gaming (SBG) and casino slots. Back in 1993, multigame - the ability to offer several games together on one gaming terminal - was still a novelty. Amatic focused on multigame from day one, and this focus has been a major pillar of the group’s success. New games such as Train Robbery, Mermaid’s Gold and Diamond Cats complement the greatest hits that include Billy’s Gang, 80 Days, Casanova, Aztec Secret, Baron Munchhausen, GrandX and Pharao II. Coinslot SEPTEMBER 6 - SEPTEMBER 12, 2013

When stakeholders were given the green light by the government to manufacture and site B3 machines with the latest maximum stake level of £2 back in 2011, the UK coin-op industry immediately embraced. Two years on and the B3 market is as vibrant and varied as you like. ow that the B3 stake of £2 has well and truly bedded in, there is plenty of eviN dence to show that the coin-op pay to play industry has once again reacted swiftly and decisively to a new window of opportunity. Typically, the UK’s leading manufacturers and distributors were the first to embrace the challenge that the new stake and prize levels brought. Large high street AGC operators Talarius and Praesepe, for example, reacted quickly to the change in market conditions, with both organisations taking advantage of renewed investment in R&D and the new games which came to market. This has certainly been the case over the last two years, as the products showcased this week underline. Similarly, the likes of Gala and Mecca in the bingo sector have embraced the opportunity that B3 machines have offered to themselves and their paying customers. Overall, the net result for the industry as a whole was that common sense prevailed and the right decision was taken in getting these badly needed measures in place. The stake and prize review for B3 was of course long overdue, but it was better late than never and has definitely helped amusement arcades and bingo halls to remain competitive with their machine stock and enabled them to bring fresh and entertaining new games to their premises. In the two years since the introduction of the £2 stake, the overall view certainly seems that while no-one would claim B3 to herald a new golden era of coin-op, all the indicators are that it has established itself as one of the industry’s more robust and popular sectors. Furthermore, given the levels of attention, dedication and service to the sector provided by the likes of RLMS, MEI, Genesis Games and Towergate, B3 is in the hands of the pros. In fact, when you consider the number of variations on a theme B3 offers, one could reasonably argue that when it comes to adult gaming, the genre has something for everyone.

Comment Go on, go for a pint

“Tremendous knowledge Dave!”

alex lee comment was buoyed to find out recently that BACTA has underlined its commitment to the UK pub sector. There are so many reasons for this,it would be a struggle even just to list them all in a column of this size. Besides the obvious benefits of having a quiet pint or two and socialising with friends and/or family, there’s some seriously good coin-op entertainment on offer down the boozer. I know this for a fact as despite my days of drinking eight pints a night being long gone, I still pop down the local from time to time to sample the wares both behind the bar and on theAWP, SWP, pool table and jukebox. Following the publication of our Great British Pub Sector feature a fortnight ago, BACTA declared that the UK machine market for pubs remains a“critical part”of the gaming machine environment, and, backed by experienced single site operator Steve Hawkins at the helm, stakeholders can expect a renewed focus on this part of the group’s activities. My personal love for pubs goes above and beyond the simple pleasure of getting leathered. For example, I met my wife in a pub, winning her over by chivalrously placing her empty glass on the top of the AWP (she’s quite small). Pubs also contain some of the greatest coin-op entertainment there is. Prior to becoming a full-time journalist, I supplemented my meagre income by winning games of ‘killer’ on the pool table and emulating ‘Tremendous Knowledge’Dave Rainford by regularly taking a few coins

I

from the likes of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Match of the Day and Hangman. Those of you in the know will be familiar with Mr Rainford (now a regular on BBC2’s Eggheads), who was for a number of years a human extension of the Queen of Hearts’ SWP machine in Fallowfield, Manchester. I do hope that BACTA continues to work closely with the likes of the IOA, the BBPA and the ALMR in order to better deal with issues that come from pubs and clubs. Not only am I a fan of pubs per se, but the coin-op entertainment within - and the behaviour it elicits from those who get involved - has always been a constant source of fascination for me.Take coin-op away from a lot of pubs and those premises wouldn’t be half the places they are. I had a very interesting chat with Games Warehouse’s Nick Hardy recently and was impressed by the amount of work his firm is putting into turning the SWP sector around. His overall message is that we must all work collaboratively in order for those cashboxes to fill up.I couldn’t help but agree and in the same way that UK holidaymakers must make the effort to visit domestic seaside locations, we must all find time to pop down the boozer - and encourage others to join us. Remember, if you’re driving, the money you save by not getting inebriated can always go in the AWP, the SWP or the pool table. Besides, there’s nothing funnier than selecting ‘Nag Nag Nag’ by Cabaret Voltaire on the jukebox ten times just before you leave.

Weston set to benefit from new leisu

Plans are afoot to continue the regen governments are looking to the ga

alex lee media watch new cinema, bowling alley and six restauA rants should open Weston-Super-Mare next year, despite developers revealing a failure to land big name retailers prompting it to change its plans, according to the Weston Mercury. McLaren Life promises it will bring more shops to Weston despite no firms signing up in the twoand-a-half years since the £45m scheme was approved. Company director Alastair Bell said: “Continuing on the back of the success of the hotel and car park and the demolition of the original Dolphin Square, it is vital to keep this momentum going and start the construction of phase three as soon as possible. By approaching the final phase in two stages, we can expect the first part

of Dolphin Square to open in late 2014, providing a much needed boost to Weston town centre.” Plans to build the leisure sector with nothing other than a verbal guarantee of new shops to follow, has prompted concern from one councillor over the company’s commitment and feasibility of its proposal. The council cannot force McLaren Life to build the shops should it go back on its promise - a move that would leave a big gap between the cinema and the Premier Inn hotel. This month McLaren Life seeks North Somerset Council’s permission to change its original site layout plan, so building work on the leisure sector can begin in the autumn. The leisure part will feature Vue Cinema, First Bowl, a gym and various restaurants includ-

ing Harvester, Pizza Express and Nando’s, plus two retail units. However, Cllr John Crockford-Hawley said: “From McLaren Life’s point of view it makes sense and for the town it makes sense as it’ll bring a bit extra to the town. But I’m sure I won’t be on my own if I say I’m concerned if the retail area will take place, and even if it does, whether Weston can sustain a larger retail section that it has. I don’t think we have a critical mass of spending people for a large spending centre.” Cllr Crockford-Hawley said Weston needs to be careful to protect its ‘pleasure and leisure’ image and continue the good work started by the seafront improvements, rather than sacrifice what makes Weston unique. Further afield,

research from Mintel shows that 67 per cent of kids age 12-17 visited a U.S. theme park in the last year, compared with 76 per cent five years earlier, according to CNN. With competition from video games, the internet and cheaper entertainment, theme parks are seeing reduced visits from teens, said Mintel. In addition to the changing interests of today’s teens, rising theme parks prices - not just the cost of admission, but also the price of services once there - can be a huge deterrent to theme park visits by young people, Mintel found. Mintel argues that theme parks could boost guest satisfaction by integrating games and the internet, and by using technology to cut down on wait times. In fact, 76 per cent of theme park

“The hotels have been busy, although there have been vacancies, but the mixture of sunny spells and cloudy skies has meant indoor attractions have been quite popular. On the whole it has been a successful bank holiday for the town.” JASMINE CONNOLLY, BOURNEMOUTH TOURISM

“With the finalised details of the Triennial now imminent, we eagerly await the timescale to which this will come into effect so purchase planning can begin.

tinue the regeneration of Weston-Super-Mare, while a number of European oking to the gaming industry to help kick-start economic recovery.

visitors, according to Mintel, believe theme parks should use enhanced technology to decrease wait times. And finally, governments across Europe are betting the house on new casinos to help boost the economic recovery in their respective countries, according to the GBGC.com website. In Ireland, the new Gambling Control Bill will permit 40 small casinos, which will have no more than 15 gaming tables. Ireland does not currently have any ‘proper’ casinos, so the addition of 40 gaming properties will be quite a revolution to the gambling sector in the country. ‘Super casinos’, however, have been excluded from the new regulation. Elsewhere, Las Vegas Sands is planning a casino resort in Spain on a scale

not seen in Europe before. If completed as planned on the site near Madrid, Europa Vegas will involve E26bn worth of investment and includes six casinos, three golf courses, 12 hotels (with 36,000 rooms) and will be as big as half of the entire Las Vegas Strip. A second, similar casino resort is also being proposed for Barcelona. Grupo Veremonte intends Barcelona World to be the biggest entertainment centre in Europe and a rival for Europa Vegas. Estimates are that the two projects could employ a total of 180,000 people. GBGC Director Lorien Pilling commented: “The fact that some European politicians are willing to change completely their position on casinos is evidence of the just how severe the economic problem is in the EU. In

usual circumstances there are few votes to be won in permitting or expanding gambling.” But if new casinos do help the recovery in these countries the UK government will be kicking itself. Under former Prime Minister Gordon Brown it had the chance to create a regional super casino in 2007, but chose not to press ahead with it. The jobs, investment and tax revenues would have been most welcome; especially as the new casino would likely have been completed by now had construction begun in 2010.
