Ainsworth Game Technology will showcase several innovative new cabinets and nearly 140 games at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) 2016 from Sept. 27-29 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
“G2E 2016 will be a great opportunity for us to showcase the tremendous growth we have experienced over the past year,” said Ainsworth chief executive officer Danny Gladstone. “We are introducing exciting innovations like our new A600 and A640 cabinets. These products continue the momentum we have from opening our brand-new 291,000-square-foot North American headquarters in Las Vegas, new facilities for the Latin America division, and beginning to offer our Class II gaming products following the successful acquisition of Nova Technologies.”
A600 Continues Ainsworth Legacy
Ainsworth recently introduced its new A600 cabinet line, incorporating the company’s deep and long-standing knowledge into an exciting new product for its casino partners.
The A600 takes existing Ainsworth technology to the next level with larger game screens, dynamic lighting effects and a state-of-the-art LCD touchscreen button deck. At G2E more than 50 titles will be shown on the A600 or A600 Slant Top, further demonstrating the company’s commitment to a long-term pipeline of successful content.
“We believe the A600 can be a game changer,” said Ainsworth president – North America Mike Dreitzer. “The early feedback from customers has been tremendous and the new game content can truly take Ainsworth to the next level. Our game library has grown to more than 200 unique titles and with upgraded hardware capabilities we can offer customers entirely new possibilities for their casino floors.”
While being focused on supreme engineering and best-in-class reliability, the A600 includes the high-end graphics, high-resolution screens, and interactive button decks that are expected by today’s casino operators and slots players.
Two 24-inch screen and game-driven lighting effects enable players to experience Ainsworth’s world-renown games in an entirely new way on the A600®. Seven unique sign packages are available with the A600 on leading games including the Cash Odyssey series, which features a linked progressive jackpot on three new games – Huckleberry Finn, Gulliver’s Travels, and Robinson Crusoe.
Worldwide Debut of A640
The A640 will highlight Ainsworth’s 6,480-square-foot booth #2059. The A640 will be displayed with a variety of licensed content including King Kong, King Kong Skull Island, The Magnificent Seven Reloaded, and Three Amigos Ride Again.
The stunning A640 features optimal viewing on 40-inch high-definition LCD game screen and an attractive design creating powerful game experiences with eye-catching game art. The cabinet comes standard with a touchscreen LCD button deck with a mechanical “bash button” to combine the ease of new technology with the excitement of traditional slot play.
Plus, an optional 27-inch LCD topper will attract players across busy casino floors.
Hot Content for the A560SL
Ainsworth’s most popular cabinet – the A560SL – continues to evolve. More than 40 titles will be shown at G2E on this proven casino favorite.
Operators will see new game series that expand upon Ainsworth’s successful Sweet Zone themes, such as the new Sweet Zone Xtreme game series, which features improved graphics, massive reel strips in bonus features and even more Sweet Zone features that keep players excited with every spin.
Sweet Zone Xtreme debuts with two hot games – Rumble Thunder and Toro Treasures.
Additionally, the new Fortune Series will be on display alongside new titles for established themes including Gold Awards, Double Sweet Zone and Quad Shot.
Class II Library Expanding
In the eight months since Ainsworth completed the acquisition of Nova Technologies, the company has seen rapid growth in Class II Tribal markets. Titles that were proven winners in Class III are now available in Class II on four unique cabinets – the A560, A560 Wideboy, Atlas 100 and A560 SL.
Many of Ainsworth’s player favorites will be displayed on Class II cabinets at the show, including Rumble Rumble and Flying Horse on the A560SL. Those two titles have been among Ainsworth’s top performers over the past two years.
The company’s library of Class II titles currently stands at about 45, with plans to develop an additional 35 in the next 12 months.
“Tribal casino operators have reported strong performance for our initial entry into Class II markets,” said Ainsworth director of Class II operations and business development Russell Witt. “Tribes have the sovereign right to operate Class II Gaming Systems and we are committed to developing best in class content and products to help ensure long-term prosperity and growth in this very important gaming segment.”
