Heading On Track to Succeed

Konami is extending product pipelines with new game concepts.

In 2020, Konami adjusted its product roadmap to suit the unique environment. The release of Konami's first All Aboard multigame pack, All Aboard Express, and the improved player experience in Bull Rush have both been very well received by operators and players.

This year, Konami will increase its wide range of products in the Concerto and Concerto Stack cabinets with multiple game series and titles, including additions to All Aboard multigame products and Bull Rush titles. New game concepts for Diamond Trails and Rapid Jewels will also debut.

First launched in November last year — and with more than 600 installs across NSW and Queensland — Bull Rush has provided players with a thrilling gaming experience. Improved features include a Repeat Win concept, two progressive jackpots, dynamic bonuses, multi-denomination including $1, player configurable lines, and the introduction of the "X-TRA HIT" concept. Yarr Matey! and Aztec Empire will be the next additions to this series.

Konami is also excited to release MultiTrails — a multigame pack from the popular Money Trail series first released in 2019. MultiTrails graphics take advantage of the Concerto Stack portrait-style machine. Multi-denominations are offered across three popular titles: Rising Koi, Fortune Phoenix and Golden Rabbit. MultiTrails will be a perfect product for any gaming floor.

“Continuing on from the success of All Aboard, the All Aboard Express multigame has been a standout,” said Konami National
Sales Manager David Punter.

“With feedback from our customers, we designed Bull Rush and

Bull Rush Blitz, which have hit the ground as some of the top performing games — complementing All Aboard and supporting our customers with something new and innovative.
“I am pleased with the uptake and feedback and look forward to launching more great games and creative new themes through 2021.”

Utopia Gaming Systems is Delivering the Future of Gaming

Since UTOPIA Gaming Systems arrived on the scene in 2014, it has been busy rolling out the latest in gaming systems innovation and has established itself as an exciting alternative for venue managers.

UTOPIA acquired the Global Gaming System in 2016. Hugely popular in NSW and installed in over 1,000 venues, the team of UTOPIA developers has been upgrading and adding to the Global Gaming System to deliver a technologically smart platform, designed with the future of gaming in mind.

Providing gaming solutions throughout Australia, UTOPIA’s suite of products and services range from licensed monitoring services, gaming floor analysis and reporting, BI tools, loyalty, cashless solutions and more.

The latest product launch by UTOPIA was the release of its new cashless gaming product, Global MIMO, in NSW. This is included within the approval of its CCU6 PLUS by the NSW Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority.

Global MIMO (“Money In Money Out”) delivers all the benefits of TITO but at a significant cost saving. It is a great alternative to TITO because it eliminates the need to install ticket printers in every machine and also reduces the ongoing running costs – not to mention no more tickets!

Global MIMO is a non-member card-based solution and is best described as “card-based” TITO. It can be used standalone or alongside an existing TITO system.

Alan Townsend, general manager of UTOPIA said “Global MIMO puts cashless gaming within reach of every club and pub and also prepares the venue for the shift to digital gaming at some time in the future.”

Another significant milestone for UTOPIA, was gaining approval of a new licensed monitoring operator system in Queensland. As the first new LMO in over two decades, this new system finally provides Queensland venue managers with an exciting alternative.

“The OLGR approval process has been thorough and receiving the final approval was a huge milestone,” said Townsend. “It is a big tick for the integrity of our system and will give comfort to our potential customers.”

While the features and functionality are important, the role of the LMO is much more than just a monitoring system. UTOPIA understands the importance of quality service and maintenance.

UTOPIA has more gaming systems in venues across the country than any other supplier.

“While we may be relatively new in Queensland, we are a serious alternative,” said Townsend.

Currently available in NSW and SA, the innovative UTOPIA loyalty system and customer engagement tool enables a venue to connect and engage with patrons. The UTOPIA loyalty system

allows patrons to be rewarded with loyalty points and can offer engaging promotions and prizes. It also allows attractive advertising and promotions to be display on the PIMs.

Global Eye is the reporting and BI capabilities of the Global system. Providing real-time data, this incredibly powerful analysis tool helps gaming managers better manage their gaming floor and make well-informed decisions.

UTOPIA also offers Cash Redemption Terminals (CRTs) that are the only ones available in Australia with a Level 1, 24-hour rated safe. The advantage here is that CRTs don’t need to be emptied overnight. UTOPIA CRTs are fully integrated with most other gaming systems around Australia, including MAX and Odyssey in QLD.

All Banktech systems and hardware (Gaming system, ATMs, CRTs, Cash Recyclers), can be integrated into Omni VISION, UTOPIA’s online portal. Omni VISION allows you to “see everything” across your venue from your desktop or mobile phone, including performance of your gaming floor and cash levels in devices. 

UTOPIA Gaming Systems provides a complete venue solution and helps prepare venues for the digital cashless future.
