The recently released “Fruit Bowl” game from Multimedia Games is a 10-reel, six line game. With a minimum bet of six credits and a maximum of bet of 30 credits, every play consists of two reel spins.
To win, players match fruit symbols on one of the three- or four-spot paylines. If players end up with no Pin symbols after the first or second spin, they will pick up an additional Strike or Spare bonus, worth up to 80 times their line bet. Getting four Fruit Bowl symbols on an outside payline gets players 12,500 credits.

‘Double Dragon’ slots
Recently released to the Class II gaming market, “Double Dragon Two-Way Frenzy” gives players a twist on winning with its center Frenzy bonus reel that offers players the experience of left-to-right and right-to-left game-play. Double Dragon Two-Way Frenzy is a seven-reel, 50-line video slot available in either Bally’s CineVision or upright V20 cabinet styles.
Available denominations for this game range from one cent up to 25 cents. The game features a top jackpot award of 10,000 credits times the line bet. When all 50 lines are active, players are encouraged to wager max bets to take advantage of these left-to-right and right-to-left payout possibilities. Bonus symbols on the shared center fourth reel also multiply the payouts on a variety of left-to-right or right-to-left winning combinations. Additionally, the center reel also features a bonus re-spin symbol which triggers a re-spin event when aligned with a win on the first or last three reels. The reels will then randomly re-spin two, three or four times to the same position and then repay the total win.
The new Double Dragon Two-Way Frenzy CineVision and V20 Upright video slot has an exotic Asian theme, innovative seven-reel widescreen video design and player-friendly “Easy Select” button deck.

PowerCheck Guard Tour System and upgraded KeyWatcher system
Morse Watchmans, a creator of security management products, has simplified guard tour procedures and tasks with the use of the its PowerCheck Guard Tour System.
The computerized PowerCheck Guard Tour System is comprised of a hand-held data recorder, checkpoint stations and reporting software. The hand-held data recorder allows security personnel to input incident codes on site, using the built-in keypad and display. Paperwork is minimized with 99 pre-set incident codes which can be downloaded to the computer at the end of the guard tour. The auto pilot feature prompts guards to visit the next station and can be programmed for random tour sequences for added security measures. Checkpoint stations are designed for indoor and outdoor use, and their compact design and size blend well into any environment.
The Tour-Pro Data Sorting Software is a Windows application which converts the data recorder information into custom reports and was developed specifically for the Morse Watchmans PowerCheck Guard Tour System. For added value and convenience, the software enables programming of the data recorder and file management.
The company has also upgraded its KeyWatcher system.
New to the KeyWatcher is the brightly illuminated key storage feature which simplifies the identification and location of the correct key, while its new design provides maximum storage over minimal wall space. Fully scalable, the new modular design allows users to configure each unit to meet the specific needs of their application. A number of different modules are available, including credit card holders and lockers for cellular phones, firearms or other items that need to be accounted for and secured when not in use.
The front access panel of KeyWatcher incorporates a built-in key pad which can accommodate up to 2,000 codes with PINs (personal identification numbers). An illuminated two-line, 16-character LED display prompts users through the process of key removal and replacement and also provides on-site audit trail data. Biometric fingerprint reader modules are available for KeyWatcher in addition to modules for magnetic or proximity card readers.
Another recently upgraded feature of KeyWatcher is the capability to send priority e-mail alerts to security managers to inform them of the whereabouts of Smart Keys. Each individual key is secured to a Smart Key locking mechanism with built-in memory chip. Data from the chip is stored when a key is inserted into a key slot. Users can only access keys for which they have an authorized user code, although keys can be returned to any location in the box.
The unit’s tamper-proof mechanism triggers an alarm under a range of conditions, including the use of force to gain access or remove a key, three consecutive invalid user codes, power outages or a door left open for more than 10 seconds after use.
