ICE – Konami to unleash new games on its KX 43 and Concerto OpusBy Phil - 8 January 2020
Konami will be showing games such as Dragon’s Law SeleXion, Ba Fang Jin Bao, and Treasure Ball on its speciality 4K Ultra High-Definition (UHD) machines, KX 43 and Concerto Opus at this year’s ICE.
As part of its continuing support for core dual-screen cabinets, the company is showcasing over two dozen original themes on Concerto upright and Slant, from jackpot progressives to SeleXion multi-game compatible content. Gaming executives and professionals at this year’s event will also encounter the official ICE premiere of Konami’s new 49J machine, offering high-end 4K entertainment across a 49-inch, “J-curve” display.
“This year’s ICE lineup is a demonstration of Konami’s commitment to delivering today’s top games, while driving new innovation for the future of the casino floor,” said Eduardo Aching, vice president, international gaming operations. “From the proven performance of Konami’s latest linked progressives, to creative advancements across the 49J cabinet, ICE attendees can experience a range of leading entertainment.”
ICE 2020 includes two specialty Konami cabinets, each with relaxed slant top, dual spin buttons, dual cup holders, and an exceptional 4K game library. Konami’s 43-inch screen KX 43 and 65-inch screen Concerto Opus cabinets will showcase several of the industry’s highest performing slot series. Treasure Ball is a top new linked progressive, with the ability to offer a mix of base game options to players through SeleXion multi-game. ICE 2020 also includes the special release of Dragon’s Law SeleXion, which combines the popularity of Dragon’s Law Rapid Fever™ and Dragon’s Law Boosted™ in one machine. Inspired by the success of Konami’s classic Cai Lai Si Ji™, an entirely new 4K linked progressive called Ba Fang Jin Bao has demonstrated success with flexible betting options and original base games. These ICE show highlights are available now across international markets.
“KX 43 and Opus are trusted Konami game cabinets, backed by a large library of successful game series,” said Aching. “We are confident about the entertainment and performance these specialty slots deliver—spanning everything from compatible multi-game content to entirely new progressive mechanics.”
This event also marks the ICE premiere of 49J, Konami’s latest high-end slot segment. With standout launch series like All Aboard™, the 49J is delivering top-tier entertainment quality and variety to global operators. The machine is a must-see showcase at ICE 2020, complete with spectacular overhead signage and lighted LED chairbacks. Two unique All Aboard base games are available for launch: Dynamite Dash and Piggy Pennies.
“As KX 43 and Opus continue to gain global momentum, the new 49J is further expanding Konami’s high-end product offering by combining powerful games with premium merchandizing options,” Eduardo Aching said. “This distinctive ‘J-curve’ machine empowers operators with greater options when outfitting their casino floor.”
Konami Gaming’s ICE 2020 presentation additionally contains fresh dual-screen content for upright and slant. SeleXion-compatible base games, integrated progressives, and linked progressives are included, to support continued core product investment across international markets.
