National distributor RLMS Sales has made an exciting new addition to its portfolio this week in the form of Bell-Fruit Games’ Crazy Fruits Streak. Widely acknowledged as one of the most popular and enduring games ever released, this new Cat C-Lite model has been reinvigorated with a ‘streaktastic’ new feature, enabling players to win up to £10 with streaks. The game is housed in the stylish Mini Eclipse cabinet – ideal for mid-aisle locations – and follows hot on the heels of BFG’s Golden Winner.
Crazy Fruit Streak, designed for the AGC and bingo sectors, bears all the brilliant hallmarks of the very first Crazy Fruits offering. Even the sound of the game is true to the phenomenally successful original. Now housed in the Mini Eclipse cabinet, it features an eye catching, back-lit door with a vinyl wrapped frame that extends the iconic Crazy Fruits branding to the side of the machine. The game is based on tried and trusted Scorpion 6 technology and features an NV10 note validator as standard.
Territory Sales Manager Kevin Bottrill commented: “Crazy Fruits is instantly recognisable to legions of players and has always been a popular favourite. The addition of a streak feature allows players to enjoy an exciting gaming experience that’s big on thrills but at a low price per play.
“From an operator perspective, as the Mini Eclipse range grows, they will have the opportunity to present the games in a bank which adds a big dose of visual appeal to any machine area. Additionally the Cat C-Lite status of Crazy Fruits Streak obviously means that there’s the added benefit of only having to pay the lower five per cent rate of MGD. In a nutshell, this is a brilliant game that’s been presented in a very clever package that will delight players and operators in equal measure.”

Project’s Mega Bars Big Cash is the latest B3 model to be given the spotlight treatment by RLMS Sales this week. Already an iconic game in its own right, this latest version has been made available with a back library of 24 titles. The aim is to offer a game with a great brand identity that players will instantly recognise within a multi-game environment and give operators absolute flexibility, allowing them to introduce extra titles from the back library at a pace that suits their location and in line with pay cycles or internal promotions.
Territory Sales Manager Jonathan Lauder explained: “Mega Bars is a game that arcade and bingo players already know and love. It made perfect sense, therefore, to present the game in its own branded machine with an in-built back library rather than lose it among a compendium. The net result is that we are now able to offer one of the best games on the market as part of a future proof package that fits beautifully in a multi-game area.”
An added incentive for operators, according to Lauder, is the inclusion of a £1.50 stake. He noted: “The decision by Project to introduce a £1.50 stake option on this game is a really welcome development for both the player and the operator. From a player perspective it gives them a chance to stake up without having to commit fully to a £2 spin. It’s a nice compromise that will give them the opportunity to win bigger for only a moderate increase in stake. For the operator, this has the added benefit of raising the average stake across their location. It’s a win-win!”
Mega Bars Big Cash comes presented in the sleek and desirable Advantage Chrome cabinet, complete with full HD graphics, and is TITO ready. It also works with Project’s increasingly popular loyalty card system.
Innovative Technology Ltd. (ITL) has continued their great start to the year having returned from a successful ICE Totally Gaming 2017. The company used ICE, the largest exhibition in the industry’s calendar to launch their latest groundbreaking innovation the NV200 Spectral.
Lane Master from Unis Games was shown on the Instance Automatics stand at EAG.
It is a video bowling alley that makes use of sensors to translate real rolls into the software. The playfield length is the same as on classic alley games.
Lane Master comes with 3 monitors. 1 for each player (the game supports multiplayer), and an additional monitor in the middle marquee area that shows the scores for both players. This monitor also allows the operator to display custom promotional video/image content.
The game uses traditional bowling rules with the overall style of the software matching the sleek neon lights of the physical cabinet. The gameplay is occasionally spiced up with special bonus games that would not be possible in a real life bowling alley.
Exciting opportunity as a Field Service Engineer with Gamestec Leisure Limited, one of the largest and most progressive suppliers of coin operated amusement equipment throughout the UK. This is a field based role and involves repairing and servicing all Gamestec products at various customer sites throughout the region to the Company standard.
Globally renowned cash handling equipment provider, Innovative Technology Ltd. (ITL) has continued its rapid expansion and is set to introduce a ground-breaking new banknote validator, the NV200 Spectral. The next step in banknote validation equipment will feature incredible sensing technology that has never before been seen in the industry.
In an incredible technological leap, the NV200 Spectral banknote validator is able to capture 100% of a banknote by scanning up to 4.8 million datapoints – a figure that is unmatched by industry competitors. This number is able to be reached due to the full spectral imaging sensors that are built into the validator. The sensors can accurately discern between authentic and counterfeit notes and boast an acceptance rate of new and street grade notes of over 99%.
ITL’s Technology Director, Dr Matthew Strong, said “Incorporating spectral sensors into one of our products has long been a goal held by myself and the Research & Development team. However, until now the technology was not available to meet our ambitions. The optical sensors not only allow us to capture more of the note than ever before but also help us to prevent fraud manipulations. Our unique security feature extraction ability allows us to isolate specific security features within the note and scan them to make 100% sure of the authenticity of banknotes.”
NV200 Spectral retains the unit’s modular design, allowing additional functionalities in the form of add on modules featuring note recycling, ticket printing or a tamper-evident cashbag. Regardless of which modular add-on component is connected to the NV200 Spectral, the unit retains its industry-leading performance. The Spectral version, however, improves on the previous unit’s note-to-note processing speed and is now able to validate notes within two seconds – improving transaction time and operator profitability. The Spectral retains the exact dimensions of its predecessor but is now able to support a 24V power supply.
Matthew continued “The original NV200 was one of our most popular products and in many ways it is difficult to improve upon. However, we’ve managed to build upon our best in class performance and deliver a product that will truly revolutionise the validation industry. There are many times when a new product or feature is overblown but I can honestly say that the Spectral is a game changer. Now that we have been able to harness to power of spectral sensors, we are going to implement this technology into more of our core products to benefit our global customers.”
The NV200 Spectral will continue to support the SMART Payout and SMART Ticket add-on modules, which have been so well-received by our customers. The SMART Payout is a high-quality banknote recycler. The product can store all denominations from a given currency, effectively eradicating coin starvation and reducing the coin float level required to keep machines operational. The SMART Ticket has capitalised on the recent growth in TITO implementation in the Gaming sector, and is designed to provide customers with a printed barcode ticket that can then be exchanged for cash at redemption terminals.
In the last year, the NV200 Spectral has received independent validation from both the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Central Bank of Russia (CBR). Both banks grant approval to validators that can successfully recognise the difference between genuine and counterfeit banknotes. The unit passed both tests with flying colours and was able to find all required security features, correctly identify them, and reject all manipulated notes. Lead Currency Engineer, Ben Wright commented on
PAC-MAN Smash Slimline has a simplified mechanism but with the same PAC-MAN branding, playfield and PAC-MAN sound effects as the hugely successful PAC-MAN Smash full-siize. “PAC-MAN Smash has been a massive hit for us and due to customer demand we have reduced the size and the price slightly so that it will now fit into even more locations. We expect a massive response to this game,” says James Anderson, Sales & Commercial Director.
