The National Indian Gaming Association’s 2017 Tradeshow & Convention featured a complete array of Konami Gaming’s latest game developments for its proven Concerto Collection of video slots.
This year’s top premium, progressive, and base game options arrived to San Diego for more than 6,000 casino executives and tribal leaders to see and explore first-hand. Among Konami’s top highlights included Castlevania themed slots; all-new progressive game series such as Cai Lai Si Ji and Smash Smash Festival; custom single screen releases Dragons Fury and Pharaoh’s Fury; and leading Synkros systems updates such as Synkros Dashboards and Synkros Offers Management.
Steve Walther, senior director, marketing & product management, said: “Last fall Konami announced the expansion of its proven Concerto cabinet to a complete collection of video slot products to meet any variety of market needs. That cabinet diversity is now translating to an expanded library of proven game themes that we’re thrilled to highlight during this year’s Indian Gaming show. Our Concerto KP3+ themes deliver new game mechanics and original math to casinos across Indian Country with outstanding success and we’re thrilled to continue innovating our core products.”
Konami presented an entirely unique linked bonus game called Smash Smash Festival that increments the number of mystery prizes in a winner-takes-all prize pool in lieu of traditional progressive credit meters. This colorful fiesta game attracts players to a growing number of mystery piñata prizes in anticipation of the “Smash Time” bonus trigger. Another original progressive which has achieved strong momentum in the market is Cai Lai Si Ji. This 4-level standalone progressive is featured with a variety of custom base games including Wealth of Dynasty and Power of Riches.
The world’s first Castlevania themed slot machines will be a top featured game at NIGA 2017. Castlevania is showcased on Konami’s curved Concerto Crescent cabinet and includes exciting bonus adventures that invite players to journey through Dracula’s castle and battle various dark monsters for their chance at jackpot victory. Each game is filled with characters, scenes, and sounds from the iconic video game legend that has captivated generations of worldwide followers.
