Sega’s tremendously popular Sonic Basketball now comes with brand new Reactive lighting effects that makes scoring even more gratifying. At this month’s Euro Attraction Show (EAS) in Berlin (26th to 28th Sep) visitors to Sega’s Booth 21-206 will get to experience this classic game that features in FECs and game rooms in every continent with this major new upgrade.
Explaining the philosophy behind the change Justin Burke, General Manager at Sega said, “5 years ago Sonic-branded basketball brought a whole new lease of life to this game category, where the typical look was quite dated and very similar across all manufacturers. Our fresh blue and white Sonic All-stars version changed all that, and with our iconic mascot “Sonic The HedgehogTM” at the heart of the design, the income was noticeably higher than standard units. So now we felt it was time to give this Sonic Basketball a major boost to keep it at the top of the league of basketball games”.
Vince Moreno, US Sales Manager added “The brand new dazzling lights takes the look of Sonic Basketball to a whole new level. As well as attracting player’s attention with bright blue LED lighting, the game also produces a quick pulse like effect when player scores. This flashing lighting effect combined with cheering audio delivers a satisfying feeling every time the player scores, which encourages repeat play. Players will also love the moving hoop with rushing music that makes the game both fun and challenging. This game is best enjoyed with friends or family so we’ve designed it to link up to 15 cabinets.”
In addition to the Sonic Basketball, Sega’s Sonic Branded games includes Sonic Air Hockey, Sonic Baby Air Hockey – designed to be narrow and shorter just for kids, Sonic Dash Extreme – a video redemption game; as well as a mechanical redemption game Sonic Blast Ball. All these games have seen a recent surge in demand, due to Sega’s continued commitment to deliver great value, quality and income potential through these games. Furthermore, the current Sonic TV series and a multitude of consumer games on various platforms are helping players re-engage with Sonic games in arcades.
The brand new Sonic Basketball is the same fun but compact size as before, making it ideal for locations big and small. Cabinet measures 249cm (98”) Deep by 104cm (41”) Wide and 264cm (104”) Tall. The game ships in a compact crate that measures 115cm (45”) Deep by 113cm (45”) Wide and 252cm (99”) Tall.

Project, the UK’s leading creator of poker-based gaming machines, has expanded its portfolio with a double launch comprising Bank it alongside Multi-Poker, a high play appeal compendium featuring four of the company’s most popular and proven models. Project is widely regarded as the industry’s poker experts with the majority of high street AGCs having at least one Project poker themed game on their gaming floor.
Explaining the strategy behind the double launch, Project Managing Director, Tony Boulton said: “Bank it is a dedicated game which will enable operators to provide the very latest product to sites which have dedicated poker playing customers. Poker sales are at a three year high and we estimate there are in the region of 3,000 of our poker themed games out in the field and performing well, a strong sign of the enduring appeal that poker has with the player base.”
He added: “The Multi-Poker compendium features Free Hand Poker, Jacks or Better, Find The Lady Ultimate Gamble and Chase The Ace No Limits. These represent four proven games available in a single cabinet and is the recommended route for operators who want to provide a poker option but possibly have a limited number of positions available on their gaming floor. Multi-Poker also creates an opportunity to grow a poker following. Poker is a differentiated income stream and when this strategy is employed it grows bottom line profits by attracting new revenue as opposed to cannibalising existing spend. The fact that poker sales are at their highest level since 2014 clearly demonstrates the appetite for both new and proven poker games and the importance of poker to a segment of the AGC market that has its own characteristics and motivations.”

£1 in every £13 spent on toys in first half of 2017 was on superheroes, according to new research.
Sales of superhero toys have increased by 70% since 2014, according to specialist market research company NPD, with Batman from DC Comics swooping in to claim the top spot as the UK’s most popular toy licence.
The Super Heroes Girls from DC Comics came a close second in terms of popularity, with Batgirls, Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Harley Quinn capturing kids’ imaginations.
The massive surge in popularity for these classic comic characters is undoubtedly as a result of a series of hugely successful film titles, including the release of the Lego Batman Movie at the start of this year. Last year’s Suicide Squad movie, this year’s box office monster Wonder Woman and the upcoming Justice League (released in November) continue to fuel interest in the characters among kids and adults alike.
NPD stated it was confident that superhero toy sale records would be broken by the end of the year.
BNAE has the exclusive licence for the DC Comics brand in the amusements sector. The DC Comics four-player, closed-loop pusher is breaking its own records for cashbox on site. This has been followed by a DC Comics heroes and villains themed air hockey table, which is also a great performer.
There is a massive range of DC Comics prizes available from BNAE, including the Super Girls/Wonder Woman Mix and the Justice League mix of characters. There are also mugs, watches, key chains, stress balls and more to provide licensed options at all price points.
Operators can browse the entire catalogue of superhero prizes via the online catalogue, which features stock availability. Contact Darrell Simmonds, EMEA Sales Manager on +44 (0) 20 8324 6101 for more details.
RLMS Sales has turned the spotlight this week on a fantastic new product that could offer a much needed solution to the ongoing dilemma facing operators over their popular, but increasingly ageing legacy games. Hailing from the hugely respected Electrocoin stable, BAR-X 7even delivers all the timeless appeal of the original BAR-X phenomenon, but this time round in an ultra-reliable package that makes the most of modern technology.
From a player perspective, BAR-X 7even looks, feels and plays exactly like their favourite original, right down to the beautiful chrome cabinet and instantly familiar branding. Where Electrocoin has struck a major difference is in the build, which now utilises tried and trusted Scorpion 6 technology complete with NV9 note acceptor as standard and TITO compatibility. BAR-X 7even is available with a £25 jackpot on 25p/30p play options and is fully compliant with current technical standards.
Territory Sales Manager Jonathan Lauder explained: “The challenge for Electrocoin was to transform one of the most iconic games ever created into a contemporary product that is fit for purpose in today’s operating environment. And they had to achieve that without losing the key ingredients that made it such a classic in the first place. BAR-X 7even does that brilliantly with its winning combination of retro styling and cutting edge technology.”
He added: “Players will continue to be delighted with a game that has no noticeable difference from the original classic, either in the way it looks or plays. Similarly, operators can be reassured that they have a fully compliant game that will be more reliable and continue to be a firm favourite for future generations of players.”
