Slot vendors aim for the stars when it comes to new game and systems technology, as this year’s World of Slots shows
Has the golden age of casino-based slot machine gaming come and gone?
If you listen to some pundits, you would think it has. For proof, they point toward the game’s rapidly aging player base, seeming lack of popularity among younger generations of casino goers, the slow adoption of cutting-edge concepts such as skill-based gaming and the surprising surge in popularity of electronic and even traditional table games. As a harbinger of what is to come, they offer Encore Boston Harbor, the recently opened Wynn Resorts property in Massachusetts where, for the first time in a very long time, a major, land-based U.S. gaming resort is deriving more revenue from table games than slots machines.
What are we to make of all this? Are we returning to the casino model of the 1940s and 1950s where table games were king and slots were confined to the back walls and out-of-the-way spaces?
Well, to liberally paraphrase a quote attributed to Mark Twain, I’m here to tell you that reports of a slot machine demise are greatly exaggerated. For proof, I offer this year’s version of World of Slots, our yearly preview of slots and systems that will be featured by major manufacturers at Global Gaming Expo (G2E), which will be taking place October 15-17 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas. For many of these companies, slot machines will be the highlight products featured at their booths, where attendees will be able to experience the newest themed games, the latest advances in slot systems technology, the latest slot cabinet concepts, play mechanics featuring arcade and skill-based concepts, innovative progressive links and much, much more. Read on to experience the full scope of each slot provider’s G2E vision, in their own words:

KONAMI GAMING | www.gaming.konami.com | G2E booth number: 1256
A company characterized by its strong entertainment heritage and proven dependability, Konami Gaming is using G2E 2019 to provide the industry with a first look at an expanding lineup of future product. Guests from across the globe will be among the first to experience entirely new slot cabinets, creative game content, and casino systems solutions aimed at advancing product technology across the space.
On the heels of high performance across the big-screen Concerto Opus cabinet and growing momentum for its award-winning KX 43, Konami is further expanding its cabinet lineup with a never-before-seen, portrait-screen machine. Built to maximize merchandising, versatility and enjoyment, Konami’s latest slot cabinet will showcase several debut series in captivating 4K Ultra HD. Guests at G2E Las Vegas will be first in the industry to experience the machine firsthand.
KX 43 is set to premiere six unique linked progressives filled with must-see play mechanics. Fortune Mint is among this year’s showcase series on the 4K UHD portrait screen machine.

Hao Yun Lai is the first ever game to combine the popularity of both Strike Zone—from games like Star Watch Magma—and the Fade Away Feature—from games like Chili Chili Fire—together in one. When any wild symbol lands within the player’s selected Strike Zone it triggers the Fade Away Feature, which eliminates all lower-value card symbols and leaves only higher-value picture symbols for big win combinations. Hao Yun Lai also includes a symbol-driven integrated progressive delivered through a new Pop n’ Drop feature that involves stacked fireworks that hang in the upper area of the screen.
Konami’s award-winning SYNKROS casino management system will offer live demo opportunities throughout the show, with a number of award-winning advancements including SYNK Vision facial recognition and the SynkConnect player mobile app. Both are cardless solutions, designed to empower players with the opportunity to receive targeted offers, rewards and communications, without the need for a traditional player loyalty card.
