Monte Carlo from Electrocoin: In Elektra and Eclipse at ICE
Electrocoin go into ICE 2018 on the crest of a wave as a result of the rave reviews for their Cat C Monte Carlo digital platform. ‘The customer feedback for the new content and increased player selection options has been excellent, even to the extent that one operator has named it as ‘machine of the year’ said Electrocoin’s John Stergides. He added. ‘We will be showing Monte Carlo in the new Elektra cabinet as well as the Gemstar Eclipse rebuild, thus offering options for all sectors of the arcade and single site sectors. Both will feature a library of 22 games with up to 18 being available at any time to the player. We have also included some classic Bar X type games at lower stake and prize settings which will widen the appeal to players in all venues’.
We understand that another game with a lower stake and prize setting will also be making its ICE debut. Bar-X 7even is offered in the traditional Casino cabinet with a £25 jackpot and a 25p or 30p stake, in line with its predecessor that achieved great success a few years ago. Also on show in the Cat C sector will be the Bar-X tablet system which has proven popular in the arcade sector and continues to evolve with new operator friendly adaptations added.
ICE 2018 will also see the European launch of another exciting product, Digital Centre’s ‘Grand Palace’. First seen at IAAPA in a larger format, Electrocoin will be showing a smaller version with a 120” LED screen, but what makes it unique is that this is the first Redemption Photo booth. Grand Palace is a new interactive game which combines traditional photo booth elements with a giant LED video Wall redemption game. ‘We know that customers will be excited by what we to offer at ICE this year so they should be certain to pay a visit to us on stand N1 -400 which is by the main N1 entrance ’ added Stergides.
