ICE – APEX gives Pinnacle a faceliftBy Phil - 26 January 2015
APEX gaming will be showing its newly designed Pinnacle gaming machines on its stand number S3-350.
This not only retains the youth of the Pinnacle yet also offers even more space to present the HD graphics of the APEX games.
The upright Pinnacle 22” has now been updated to the Pinnacle 24” and the slant top Pinnacle SL is now equipped with 27” screens. These new gaming machines retain all the benefits customers are accustomed to, such as optimal component choice, security and patented cooling system to enable 24/7 gaming entertainment.
The EVO platform within the Pinnacle gaming machines allows the APEX games to be brought to life. This is the platform of the future which enables both 3D and 2D games to be played upon. Operators can offer their customers more games choice here. The standard choice is with five 3D games, twenty classic games and two brand new games – namely Red Hot 20 and Red Hot Burning. The games are clearly structured on the screen and can be simply chosen with the same technology that users are used to from smartphones and tablets.
The iDROP is making waves in the global gaming industry and rightly so. The iDROP is available in two versions: The iDROP is the perfect table game solution that has filled an important gap in the market place – namely as the link between table, slots gaming, accounting and the casino management system. It combines security, speed and flexibility and accepts and can also dispense tickets. It contains a banknote reader with bulk note feeder so that croupiers can enter the notes in a bundle. The ticket printer can then print out a ticket if required (for cashing out or should the player wish to only exchange part of the ticket win for chips, then the remaining value is returned in ticket form). The iDROP can be integrated into all systems and its real-time accounting information enables management to have complete and immediate information of the iDROP contents.
The second key factor of the iDROP is that it unites land-based slots gaming with mobile-based tablet gaming. Gaming operators have the possibility to offer tablet gaming to their customers. The question is how to link the slots and tablets. The solution is the iDROP. The money on the ticket is converted to credit on the tablet. On cashing on the tablet, the credit is transferred to a ticket thanks to the iDROP.
APEX provides complete solutions. This naturally also relates to mobile gaming. The name is APEX MOBILE SLOTS. The APEX games are simple to integrate on any standard (Android-based) tablet. Operators can therefore offer their customers the solution to unite slots and mobile gaming on their premises. The classic games such as Leonardo’s Code, Arriva, Ocean Tale and Red Hot Fruits are already available for mobile play.
APEX gaming formally introduced the APEX PLAYER STATION (APS) at the last ICE. Much has happened since then. It is already certified for the market in Macau. This fully electronic multiplayer offers four table games – Roulette, Baccarat, Sic-Bo and Quikker. Quikker is unique to APEX and is a card-based table game that is just great to play. Come to the APEX stand to find out just why.
The APS can be connected to a total of four roulette wheels – giving players more choice and operators even more reasons to choose APEX. These include both electronic and live wheels.
Furthermore, APEX gaming offers its customers the chance to integrate the APEX slot games into the APS.
The APS is terminal-based. The customer decides how many player positions there should be. Any future expansion is simple to integrate. Players have the complete choice on four table games and the APEX slot games here.
This year’s ICE promises so much for APEX customers, as Mr. Johannes Weissengruber, founder and Chairman, points out: “We are dedicated to taking gaming to the next level. Our new management structure represents this and our product range has never been so large and innovative. This will be an ICE never to forget”.
