Gaming supplier Konami Gaming Inc is expanding its Concerto video slot product range, the firm announced in a Wednesday press release.
The new line-up includes slot machines offering a multi-game version and also new display formats, including slant screen, curved single screen and flat single screen, the firm said.
Konami stated the expanded Concerto range would debut at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) trade exhibition, to take place from September 27 to September 29 in Las Vegas, in the United States.
The new Concerto Slant carries dual 27-inch high-definition game screens, consistent with the original video upright version, but with a lower profile and a new angle posture, designed to increase player comfort and convenience, the firm said.
Konami is also bringing its SeleXion multi-game platform to the Concerto range. It means that up to 10 different game themes can be featured on a cabinet, the gaming supplier stated. Concerto SeleXion will be available for both standard Concerto upright and Concerto Slant machines.
The new Concerto Stack features a single screen instead of the dual-screen configuration of the standard Concerto upright. Concerto Crescent (pictured) includes a single, curved screen.
“The core elements of Concerto were designed with the player in mind and engineered to optimise revenue potential,” Matt Reback, vice president of marketing at Konami, said in a statement included in the press release.
He added: “We’re now extending those key components to more industry-leading video formats to equip operators to diversify their casino floor with a robust variety of cabinets and game content.”
The Concerto video slot has been performing well in Asia, according to Konami’s parent, Japan-based Konami Holdings Corp. The product – alongside the firm’s Podium cabinet series – “enjoyed strong sales in the Asian market, especially in the Philippines,” in the second quarter of this year, Konami Holdings stated in its latest results announcement.
The Concerto cabinet was launched in the final quarter of 2015 in North America. Konami initiated sales of the new Concerto cabinet in Asia and Oceania in the first quarter of 2016.
Concerto is a successor to the Konami Podium cabinet, featuring dual high-definition touchscreen monitors along with enhanced processing power.
