Konami’s Cabinet Has Upgraded the Concerto Collection
The Premiere Curved Cabinet introduction has maximized Konami’s Concerto Collection momentum.
Japan – With the continued global momentum for Concerto Slant, Concerto SeleXion, Konami Gaming, Inc. is starting for the first time a curved cabinet to market together with Concerto Crescent. Concerto Crescent is currently available throughout the United States as well as abroad, and it features elements that are proven of the original upstanding machine-including its signature holographic lighting, sleek black design, as well as the powerful KP3+ platform, plus expands on it with a cinematic curved HD display that is 43 inches.
The vice president of international sales, Eduardo Aching, said that from a visual perspective, the Concerto Crescent is capturing strong attention with its display quality plus the all-new game titles that are portrait-oriented. When players are sitting down at the machine, Aching said that they have an immersive level enjoyment interaction that places them right in the middle of the action.
The debut release themes Pharaoh’s Fury and Dragon Fury have seen significant momentum across global audiences. All feature a 7-8-8-8-7-reel layout that is expanded, optimizing the extra-tall portrait orientation of Concerto Crescent. Also, these titles are the first to introduce an updated feature that dramatically raises the high-value top picture symbol number on all reels in free games, up to a total of 241 additional symbols.
Aching said that based on the trigger symbols quantity collected by players, they are given an increasing volume of Pharaoh or dragon symbols rushing to the reels in an excitement fury at the beginning of the free games. That has a huge impact on players as they are watching the extra symbols flying onto the screen and discovering tall symbol stacks that are added across the reels while they are spinning.
Aching continued saying that it is a mechanic that has amazingly seen an excellent performance in the Australian market, and now they were proud sharing it for the enjoyment of the additional global audiences.
Also, operators have the option of adding a standalone progressive of two levels to Pharaoh’s Fury and Dragon Fury to increase the excitement. That mystery trigger jackpot progressive offers a customizable range amounts of ‘must hit by’ (it’s highly-configurable).
Aching added that Crescent had achieved performance that is strong across the games, and the board with the added progressive were unquestionable performing at a premium. For properties that like using high-value prize jackpots like vacation trips or recreational vehicles, they have the flexibility of configuring the highest maxi award as ‘PRIZE’ for attracting players to a promotional item of a hot ticket.
Looking ahead, Konami is having a pipeline of new titles for furthering the expansion of the game library of Concerto Crescent, including classic favorites with new single-screen editions. Lotus Land Deluxe Wild, Mayan Chief Great Stacks, and China Shores Great Stacks feature the recognizable play mechanics and game art loved by players, with a new 6×5 reel frame that is large.
Other titles include Dragon Emblem Jackpots and Lucky O’Leary Jackpots, each having built-in jackpot bonus awards as well as free game adventures meant for players to explore and enjoy. Konami was to deliver a robust range of additional titles designed for maximizing the portrait display of Concerto Crescent with the top creative game content.
