ICE – Suzo-Happ to go with the Flow

By - 28 January 2013

Suzo-Happ will be presenting key products and new innovations from its key partners at ICE Totally Gaming 2013, including ELO (touch screens), MEI (banknote readers / recyclers and coin vaildators), FutureLogic (ticket printers), Assa (locks) and Innovative Technology (bank note readers/recyclers). At the same time, the company is expanding its own range of products.

Gaming machines come in different shapes and sizes and manufacturers require utmost flexibility in paying out coins. Large capacity casino-type hoppers – such as the Excel Hopper –are ideal for casinos that continue to rely on coin payout. The Escendo Hopper enables player-friendly coin payout in slant top gaming machines. Coin payout remains a must for AWP markets and here Suzo-Happ provides the right choice for the right market segment. Whether the Evolution Hopper, Cube Hopper or Flow Hopper – Suzo-Happ has the right solution.

Suzo-Happ is constantly increasingly its own product range and currently has an unrivalled selection of toppers. The Celebration Topper creates a new level of excitement on the gaming floor. It interfaces into the ‘SAS Jackpot’ and when the selected level of a jackpot is achieved, the topper triggers a ‘Celebration Event’. Ths event includes customisable video messages on the 15.6ins. LCD display, light pipe LEDs rise out of the top of topper, flashing LEDs on sides of LCD, confetti launcher throws out a burst of confetti from the topper and loud audio alarm celebrations sound. The Celebration Topper will be sold in multiple configurations including a unit that uses a backlight graphic panel instead of the 15.6ins. LCD.

The Celebration Topper is joined by the Reel Topper, Round Video Topper, Round Disc Topper, Tower Light Topper, Ellipse Topper, Ellipse Compact Topper, Shield Topper, Ringo Compact Topper, Mini Ellipse Topper, Xenon LED Topper, Ellipse TFTopper, Upright Topper, RGB Pill Topper, RGB Polygon Topper and the RGB Topper Box.

The Toppers can all be synchonised together – ideal when linking a bank of gaming machines. Cascading and other ways of linking the toppers can be programmed – Suzo Happ delivers the entire solution.

The forthcoming changes to the Italian comma 6a regulations have been embedded in the Flow Hopper. The new AES protocol is integrated and this will be on proud display. Further AES solutions from partner companies – Comestero for the coin validator and Innovative Technology for the banknote reader – rounds off the complete money handling solutions for the Italian AWP market form Suzo-Happ. The electro-mechanical T-Lock is the ideal solution for the new challenges in Italy. The AES T-Lock is made 100 per cent metal and is strong, durable and will stand the test of time. The compact latch envelope and cross-section fits into thin-profile doors, minimising protrusion within the enclosure. The lock has a compact solid metal body with smooth tapered sides. The Suzo-Happ team looks forward to explaining how this meets the new regulations.

Suzo-Happ will be displaying a whole selection of its products at ICE. Change machines, reel mechanisms, the Flip Card Unit, RGB Handles, buttons, lighting systems, custom-made LCD panels etc. with something, literally, for everyone.

Harald Wagemaker, Sales Director EMEA at Suzo-Happ, said: “Our focus is creating partnerships. We know such partnerships benefit the household names in the industry. We asked ourselves how we can increase our service with manufacturers. The gaming industry is very dynamic as we see year-on-year at the ICE. We see ourselves as the bridge between the present and the future. We can design and manufacture new products for our customers and, as a distributor, we can manage the product flow to our customers. That means they do not need to purchase complete units at one time. We can supply these just-in-time and invoice accordingly.”
