Significant Opportunity for B3 says Reflex

22/02/2012

There remains a significant opportunity to replace older genre B3 machines, once the industry digests the impact of MGD, says Quentin Stott of Reflex Gaming.

“The unfortunate backdrop to this B3 opportunity is that customers are understandably cautious because of the impact of MGD on their businesses. We will have visibility on the MGD rates in March, although I would expect businesses to then spend some time assessing the full impact of this come implementation, including whether or not VAT can be reclaimed against purchases,” he adds.

According to Reflex Gaming, the latest crop of B3 machines being produced for the AGC and bingo sector is really raising the bar. “Since the introduction of £2 per game, I really feel that industry stakeholders have worked together in helping define and refine what is needed to drive B3 income forwards. The market is always product led, and with a smarter approach in terms of product aesthetics, game polish, visual impact, price of play set-up and RTP distribution, we are starting to see some real differentiation between the older and new products,” says Quentin.

Reflex’s current B3 product offer is Alice’s Wonderland, which is a three game compendium, with Alice as the lead game. The three games on offer in Alice’s Wonderland are completely different from each other and therefore the compendium caters for a wide player audience.

Alice’s Wonderland game enables any wins over £4 to be played off as Super Bets of up to £20 per spin. Bonuses are offered to the player with an increase in stake and the main Free Games Feature can be accessed either via the standard base game, or through the Super Bet stakes.

Fruitopia is a straight forward and simple play game with 10 win lines. Wins pay left to right, centre and right to left, thereby offering a high win hit frequency. The unique feature on this game is that winning symbols may lock and holdover to subsequent games. In fact the win will hold until either a bigger win appears, or the jackpot is achieved.

Inca Gold boasts a Free Games Feature, awarded via Pot of Gold symbols landing on reels 1, 3 and 5. Before being awarded the Free Games, the player has to uncover reel symbols hidden behind ancient artefacts and then chose a Pot of Gold which reveals and awards a random number of Free Spins for that feature.
