One of the industry’s newest video slots is rapidly expanding across the globe and will debut at ICE for the first time with Konami Gaming’s new Concerto video upright cabinet hitting more casinos each week.
It features edge-to-edge 27-inch dual High-definition monitors, a 19.5-inch digital topper, signature holographic side lighting, and more. Two international debut game themes will be on display at ICE: Chili Chili Fire and Dragon’s Law Twin Fever. Guests at ICE Totally Gaming will have the chance to experience these new KP3+ platform games, available exclusively on Concerto, as well as proven KP3 platform games which are compatible with the new cabinet.
Chili Chili Fire and Dragon’s Law Twin Fever are new Konami 5-reel games that capitalize on the enhanced processing speed and resolution of the KP3+ platform by bringing custom art and animation to every LCD display, from the digital topper down through the DynamicDash button panel. In Dragon’s Law Twin fever, the topper animates through the game logo and character art with a glimmering gold backdrop as star trigger symbols twinkle in and out of the foreground. Meanwhile, a dual-screen attract has the game’s twin dragon characters winding up through both screens as the button panel illuminates with a gold dragon extended across the display. Similar ingredients are found in Chili Chili Fire, but in a manner that reflects the theme’s unique Latin flavor. Chili peppers dance overhead in the topper and lay across the button panel with festive patterns and bold colours.
“This is the quality and attention to detail our customers can expect from Konami’s powerful new KP3+ platform,” said Matt Reback, vice president, marketing at Konami Gaming, Inc. “Dragon’s Law Twin Fever and Chili Chili Fire are original math games accompanied by brilliant art and animation throughout. Our R&D team has always maintained an intense focus on quality themes that drive performance, and now with Concerto’s new canvas, Konami games are achieving industry-leading levels of patron engagement and performance.”
Konami has an aggressive pipeline of additional KP3+ games current in approvals and production, including a standalone progressive game that was shown at G2E Las Vegas last October. With Concerto’s KP3 platform compatibility, however, operators also have access to a myriad of proven Konami game themes that casino players worldwide will recognize and enjoy.
“At ICE, guests will be able to see two prime examples of Concerto’s KP3 compatibility—one game they’ll easily recognize and the other is an all-new 4-5-5-5-4 Ultra Reels game that really caters to casino patrons internationally,” said Reback. “Concerto is one of the gaming industry’s biggest new releases of 2016 and we’re thrilled to kick-off the year by showcasing it for our customers at ICE.”
