And building upon the success if its award-winning Dimension slot cabinet series, Konami is marking the G2E debut of its top popular Dimension 49 portrait cabinet, Dimension 27 stacked screen cabinet, and additional, never-before-seen premium machines.
“Konami is delivering winning developments to the casino floor in the immediate months and years ahead, in an effort to achieve meaningful gains for operators and continuous advancement for our industry as a whole,” said Tom Jingoli, executive vice president & chief operating officer at Konami Gaming, Inc. “From expanded Synkros contactless technology to new Dimension premium formats, Konami is adding even greater value to what is proven successful in the space.”
New Dimension cabinets are arriving at G2E Las Vegas for the first time—all of which include the same sheen silver finish, relaxed slant top, dual spin buttons, dual cupholders, and wired and wireless phone chargers featured in the original award-winning Dimension 49J. Ranked the industry’s highest indexing portrait cabinet for four consecutive months, Dimension 49 is a for-sale, flat-screen version of the J-curve machine and it is featured at G2E 2021 with new brand extensions on Konami’s popular series like Treasure Ball. Konami’s new Dimension 27 with three, stacked 27-inch screens is also making its G2E premiere with original linked series such as Panda Power. Additionally, Konami is unveiling a new premium cabinet format, with its own unique content library.
“Our expanded line of Dimension cabinets has helped launch some of the industry’s most popular new slots,” said Jingoli. “With series such as Treasure Ball Duo Luck, Panda Power, Celestial Riches Eclipse, Bull Blitz, and more soon to be added, we’ve only just begun exploring the Dimension line’s potential.”
Similar to Konami’s popular All Aboard, Bull Blitz is arriving to G2E Las Vegas following demonstrated success in the Australian market. The slot series is featured on Dimension 49J during G2E 2021, along with Lucky Envelope™—an entirely new premium linked progressive inspired by the gift giving tradition common in Chinese culture. In addition, a new premium licensed series premieres at Konami’s 2021 exhibit with the G2E debut of BattleBots slots, based on the popular robot combat sport and reality TV show broadcast in over 150 countries. The world’s first BattleBots themed slots are displayed throughout the show on Dimension 49J with custom sign display options.
“Last G2E, Dimension 49J was voted one of the industry’s most anticipated new cabinets. The machine has clearly delivered on the excitement with hit games like All Aboard and Ocean Spin, and now we’re taking it even further with BattleBots, Bull Blitz, Lucky Envelope, and more,” said Jingoli.
