Konami Gaming, Inc. announced the launch of its Concerto Opus cabinet following documented success at trial locations. Concerto Opus features a 65-inch 4K Ultra HD display, as well as dual cup holders, dual spin buttons, illuminated multi-color button dash and optional USB charger. Its debut launch series is a symbol-driven linked progressive based on two popular Konami classics, Solstice Celebration and Riches with Daikoku, which have been expanded to include a "Triple Sparkle" jackpot symbol transformation.
"Konami has hit the jackpot on the new Opus cabinet. With the large single screen display, the graphics and bonus rounds really provide our players with an exciting experience," said Stacey Young, vice president of slot operations at Motor City Casino Hotel in Detroit, Michigan. "When deploying new products, performance is always the key metric and the Opus games have performed over 2.5 times house average. I'm very impressed and look forward to placing more cabinets and themes on my casino floor."
Expanding upon the Sparkle Feature, Konami's new Triple Sparkle mechanic is a symbol-driven jackpot feature that transforms framed Action Stacked Symbols into potential jackpot symbols whenever two or more fully-framed reels land at the end of a spin. Players activate the Triple Sparkle feature directly on the button panel with an extra 0.5 ante bet.
"The first 30 days of Opus on our floor have been very strong," said Cliff Page, slot director at South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada. "The games have seen an increase in time on device each week, and based on that we expect the Opus to be a hit with customers who really enjoy seeing games on the 'Big Screen'."
"The Opus cabinet is unique because it provides large-screen entertainment while maintaining flexible machine footprint," said Steve Walther, senior director, marketing and product management at Konami Gaming, Inc. "Whether in a pod, bank, or end-cap, Opus delivers an exciting large-scale experience for players with practical configuration options for operators.".
