Essential Guide to ... Category B3 Products 24 SEVEN


B3 on tap around the clock Ahead of the Autumn Coin-op Show, 24 Seven is ramping up its B3 operations, including a new deal to market E-Gaming’s product line in the UK. 4 Seven is increasing its commitment to the B3 sector with two unique offerings to suit different tastes and budgets, as well as confirming a stand at the Autumn Coin-op Show. Vegas 24/7 is the first B3 product from the company - which is increasing production based on demand. It is a standalone game on a rebuild Barcrest Rio cabinet, which is retrofitted with Quixant QXI 200 PC technology.It has an attractive Las Vegas theme, with highly unique and entertaining features. “Our intention from the outset was to produce a highly entertaining and interactive game format,” said 24 Seven managing director, Simon McCarthy.“We believe we have achieved this, while offering something unique to the player.As it is also very competitively priced, it offers a niche opportunity for those looking for something different.” Vegas 24/7 has variable stake options from 50p/£1/£2, with the full £500 jackpot only possible on the latter two stakes.The general game concept uses multi-reel formats in order to get all available stakes and prizes and a full window of Jackpot symbols will award a jackpot.The game is available through 24 Seven’s UK distributors Blue Monkey and Wessex Coin. In addition, 24 Seven Gaming is marketing the multi-game compendium from Czech-based E-Gaming in the UK, which is available in both B3 and B4 formats.“The EGaming VLT product is on site in its thousands throughout Europe and so it is proven,” said McCarthy.“The other advantage for UK operators is the security of the cabinet and the reliability of the hardware. It is available to operators under a number of options including outright purchase, rent,profit share or a fixed daily fee.We have really thought outside the box in order to be competitive.” 24 Seven Gaming has reviewed EGaming’s vast back catalogue of games in order to identify five games as a starting point, which will be ideal for the B3 sector. These offer a range of styles from three,four and five reel games as follows: Multi play

81 (four reel), Triple 7 Wild (three reel), Hunter’s Dream (five reel), Big Show (three reel) and After Dark (three reel). “We first showed the product at EAG and received huge interest,”said McCarthy.“The combination of proven and interesting games with a wide range of finance options means that we have very high expectations of this compendium in what is quite a competitive market sector.We look forward to presenting both these models at the first ever Autumn Coin-op Show in October.”

Slotto 500, it ticks all the boxes RLMS is touting the new Slotto 500 from Astra as the premiere B3 machine for this year, with a range of games packed into a sleek modern cabinet. LMS is confident that the the Astra Slotto 500 is the must have B3 for 2014. Astra has listened to all the feedback from the market and answered all R the questions in one product. The Slotto 500 first hit the market in June and has become our biggest selling B3 model of the last three years. The success of this model is the compelling package it offers operators. The content is packaged in the aesthetically striking dual screen FV762 cabinet, which comes with illuminated top box and belly glass - making it a stand out product in any operator’s B3 lineup. In terms of cash management the machine is fitted as standard with an Innovative Technology NV11 note recycler, giving the machine the ability to hold up to 30 notes in a float. The content provided on the machine is managed via Astra’s MCU (Machine Configuration Unit), which gives the operator total flexibility and control to manage the content within the product. “The key to any successful product is the content and this is where the Slotto 500 excels,” said sales director, Tony Glanville. “This machine comes with the largest and most comprehensive suite of content ever provided within a single terminal to the UK B3 market. A total of twenty two different titles are loaded onto the machine. The beauty for the operator having the MCU technology fitted is they have total control over the content being displayed on the menu screens, meaning that they can offer as many or as few games as they wish. This then gives the operator the opportunity to rotate games and over time introduce different content to keep the machine fresh and appealing to the players.” Another of the machine’s significant features is the broad spectrum of games styles that have been included. Across the twenty two included games are the Iconic Reel King and Bullion Bar brands, as well as Novomatic style games such as Dolphins Pearl, Lucky Lady’s Charm and Sizzling Hot in addition new games within the compendium include Five Hundred to One, Aloha Money and Totally Bonkers. “There really is something for everyone on this machine,” said Glanville. “The hardware and software package on offer is a compelling enough reason for operators to invest in Slotto 500, but the killer blow is delivered in the price. Customers cannot believe that Slotto 500 is being delivered to market for only £3,995 plus VAT. This machine is unrivalled in the value for money it offers. My advice to all operators is don’t hesitate and call us now at RLMS Sales to get your Slotto 500 secured.”
