As the major slot manufacturers prep for this year’s Global Gaming Expo (G2E), which will take place September 27-29 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, machine cabinets and supporting technologies appear to be first and foremost on their minds and in their displays. Indeed, based on the new product descriptions provided by these companies and excerpted below, it seems every single slot provider at G2E plans on showcasing either new or improved cabinets that, thanks to improvements in screens, sound and computing technologies, are taller and more dynamic than ever before.
Of course, this does not mean the new game side of business has been neglected. New titles from slot vendors are based on an eclectic mix of subject matter, ranging from kitschy TV fare such as the Sharknadofranchise to classic Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe. Companies are also displaying their latest innovations for slot systems technology, including mobile cashless payment systems and floorwide tournament capabilities.
This is only the tip of the iceberg of slot product innovation that will be featured on the G2E show floor. Read on to experience the full scope of each slot provider’s G2E vision, in their own words:
AGS (AMERICAN GAMING SYSTEMS)
G2E booth number: 1253
A prime new booth location and dynamic new product offerings will serve as an extraordinary backdrop to “Play Harder” and “Play Smarter” with the new AGS at this year’s Global Gaming Expo in booth 1253.
As a leading supplier of Class II and Class III gaming machines, as well as specialty table products and social casino games, AGS has strategically delivered on its numerous acquisitions in 2015 to enhance its product library, expand its global footprint and successfully deliver competitive, high-performing products across the casino floor.
Operators will see their floors in a whole new light with the star of the show—AGS’ striking new Orion cabinet. Ushering AGS into the competitive premium hardware marketplace, Orion features a first-of-its-kind emotive lighting design that captures the attention of players like no other before. At the heart of Orion is a 42-inch HD monitor, set in portrait mode and exquisitely enveloped in a ring of nearly 500 game-controlled, full-color, emotive LED lights that reflect against the clean, chrome base material, visually enlarging the cabinet. When placed in bank configurations, Orion’s stunning design creates a virtual billboard of excitement that leads players into AGS’ top-performing, dynamic game content.
Launching with a flush-mount button deck and the latest HD audio with a self-contained subwoofer, Orion’s player interface and sound design amplify the cabinet’s immersive design and further entice players into AGS’ engaging game content. Black glass on the button deck attracts customers and its ergonomic features and large, easy-to-use player interface keep players comfortable for longer time on device. Stealthily engineered with an upper and lower door, easily accessible switches and internal lighting, Orion was built for exceptionally easy servicing. Its self-contained logic and use of a common platform also eliminate the need for multiple servers.
Three new titles debuting on Orion this year will expose players to AGS’ impressive game content—Fire Wolf II, Fu Nan Fu Nu and Wolf Queen. Built with the core-gambler in mind, these games feature AGS’ popular PowerXStream pay evaluation, stunning graphics and incredible sound packages that captivate players and keep them coming back for more.
Complementing AGS’ new Orion cabinet within the booth will be the immersive, eye-catching, core cabinet ICON. Featuring two flush-mounted 23-inch HD LCDs and an integrated digital sound system, the ICON cabinet delivers a truly compelling player experience. Its remarkable visual effects enhance AGS’ new suite of customized, premium game content and play mechanics, including three new core-gambler style titles that will be on display—Fire Wolf II, Fu Cat and Queen of Wonderland Fierce Factor.
The mammoth presence of AGS’ Big Red cabinet featuring Colossal Diamonds is also a must-see. This trend-setting game remains one of the most highly consistent performers on casino floors, entertaining and attracting players across the country. With nearly 250 placements across 23 states, its three-reel, single payline and large, vibrant graphics feature simple, classic gameplay that awards appealing and frequent payouts thanks to its unique high-denom betting structure.

These innovations will allow the math models and quality gaming experience that have made Ainsworth successful globally for years to play out bigger and brighter than ever before.
“The A600 launch continues the tremendous growth and progress we have seen in North America over the past year,” said Mike Dreitzer, president-North America for Ainsworth. “It has been an exciting year for Ainsworth. We opened our 291,000-square-foot North American headquarters in Las Vegas and began offering our Class II gaming products after our acquisition of Nova Technologies. Now we continue our momentum with the release of the A600, which is built to perform with the highest engineering and reliability standards and an extensive game library.”
The A600 includes the high-end graphics, high-resolution screens and interactive button decks that are expected by today’s operators and players. Two 24-inch screen and game-driven lighting effects enable players to experience Ainsworth’s world-renowned games in an entirely new way on the A600. A LCD touchscreen button deck gives an innovative look and feel, while allowing less downtime during software changes; operators will never have to change this button deck.
The sleek A600 will be showcased with a full library of game titles—including the proven games developed for the A560 Dual Screen, alongside a variety of games designed exclusively for this new cabinet.

Sometimes revolutionary ideas begin with a simple question: “What if…?” That was how JCM Global began more than 60 years ago, and that spirit of innovation has been driving the company ever since.
It was a simple question of “What if we put a bill validator on [and later inside] a slot machine” that led to a revolution in how players and operators viewed a slot machine, and operator revenue and security increased because of it.
JCM is still asking “what if….”, and the company continues to invest in development of innovative applications for the casino industry to deliver “outside-the-box” solutions for today’s integrated industry and multi-dimensional players. Working in close collaboration with OEMs and system providers, JCM is leading the industry with forward-looking solutions that are better, smarter, faster and more integrated, and go even further to help operators make connections with their customers.
JCM has always worked closely with key stakeholders across the gaming industry, and the company continuously solicits feedback from operators to discover any pain points that arise as the industry evolves. Those close working relationships have led to the development and evolution of products and technologies such as intelligent cash boxes, promotional couponing and complete note scanning, front and back. Now as the content in EGMs and the EGMs themselves are evolving, so is the need to consider ways to generate additional revenue from existing devices and systems.
JCM believes the slot machine can be utilized in new ways to unlock greater value for both the operator and the player. This new “what if…” has sparked a renewed spirit of cooperation between JCM, OEM, CMS providers, operators and jurisdictional regulators. In that cooperative effort, JCM is exploring many new features that take full advantage of the existing CMS’ and EGM’s combined computing power to deliver more options to the player and greater value to the operator.
The goal today for JCM, as it has been since asking that first “what if…” more than 60 years ago is to deliver an ever-greater player experience, while maintaining the highest level of security and accountability for operators and regulators. That spirit of innovation allows JCM to continue to take operators and their players beyond mere transactions, to building strong connections.

Last year’s G2E debut of Konami’s Concerto standard upright cabinet was met with strong enthusiasm from casino professionals who witnessed the legacy of high performance and reliability achieved by Podium on a global scale. Concerto has extended this legacy to Konami’s newest games product line, with launch titles like Chili Chili Fire and Dragon’s Law Twin Fever that have eclipsed figures achieved by Podium launch titles when they came to market six years ago.
As momentum continues to grow for Concerto worldwide, Konami is wasting no time in expanding a complete lineup of Concerto video slots. For the first time during G2E 2016, the cabinet’s sleek black look and signature holographic attract lighting feature are taking on diverse forms and functions with Konami’s new Concerto family. Concerto SeleXion, Concerto Slant, Concerto Crescent and Concerto Stack will be added, with clear visual compliment to the standard upright cabinet that is attracting player attention and generating retention at casinos across the globe.
“This year marks a milestone release of product diversity unlike anything before, and because it’s Konami our customers know it’s developed with a quality, performance and flexibility to help them make the most of every available space on their floor,” said Matt Reback, vice president, marketing at Konami. “The core elements of Concerto were designed with the player in mind and engineered to optimize revenue potential. Now, we’re extending those same core Concerto elements to new video formats to allow operators to diversify their casino floor with a robust variety of cabinets and game content.”
Leading efforts across both key areas is the new Concerto SeleXion. After outstanding popularity on Podium, Konami’s SeleXion multi-game now brings one of the industry’s fastest game change speeds to Concerto for the first time. With expanded memory and processing power, up to 10 different KP3 or KP3+ game themes—as well as a standalone progressive—can be featured on a single machine. Beyond its Concerto upright debut, SeleXion will additionally be released on the all-new Concerto Slant. Concerto Slant also carries dual 27-inch HD game screens, with a lower profile and relaxed-angle posture for player comfort and convenience. Concerto Slant supports any KP3+ platform content found on Concerto upright and is also backward compatible with proven KP3 platform titles such as Dragon’s Law, Lotus Land, China Shores and many more.
“One of the most promising trends we discovered after Concerto’s launch, was the exceptionally strong and consistent performance delivered by our new KP3+ games exclusively for Concerto and for backwards-compatible KP3 games on the new cabinet,” Reback, said. “The growing depth of our KP3+ platform library alongside proven KP3 classics has really brought a wealth of possibilities for properties and players.”
Other additions to the Concerto family lineup include two unique single screen cabinets: a curved screen Concerto Crescent machine and a tall Concerto Stack machine. Both feature a stunning 43-inch, vertically-mounted HD monitor that delivers a luxury gaming experience without exceeding the standard upright base size. Several custom game themes will be on display at G2E with exclusive content designed to optimize the extra-tall portrait orientation.
