III and V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinets, the game has all the elements to inspire players with its fiery gameplay, Dusk and Dawn jackpots, and exciting features and bonuses.
A major highlight for Ainsworth will be Pac-Man™ Dynamic Edition that sees one of the most recognizable figures in arcade game history on the A640® cabinet. This title follows the success of Pac-Man™ Wild Edition, which has seen significant uptake in the US, and adds even more fun with thrilling bonus features and massive jackpots. The A640® will also feature exciting new titles such as Desert Dawn, Desert Dusk, Rumble Rumble Eagle and Nostradamus, and new brands QuickSpin and Power Shot will debut at the show.
From the NOVOMATIC V.I.P. line of speciality cabinets will be the NOVOSTAR® V.I.P. Royal that features a standout 65” upright full HD LED screen. Presenting a selection of feature games such as Asian Fortunes™ and Treasures of Tut™ – two player-favourites in the US – this attractive cabinet unfolds the Very Important Player Experience on a grand scale. The hit NOVOSTAR® V.I.P. II and V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinets will also be on show with a selection of new games such as Dancing Dragons™ and Hold your Horses™.
The full range of Ainsworth cabinets, including the A640®, A600® and A600® Slant Top, will display more than 130 games, for both Class III and Class II markets. Highlights on the A600® include Hao Yun Dao, a new Asian-themed linked progressive series, as well as new brands FirePower and Big Hit Bonanza, which make their international debuts at the show. Undoubtedly the Class II highlight will be the unveiling of AnyBet, a linked progressive system that offers players the chance to win progressive jackpots on any Ainsworth game.
Developed in collaboration with teams in the US, Austria and worldwide, a selection of content for the US will be previewed by NOVOMATIC Americas.
