This is one of the most exciting times in Aristocrat’s 60-year history. At G2E 2014, Aristocrat is bringing a content-led strategy to life across its entire portfolio with the content to take our customers to the next level in games and systems. If it matters to the customers, it matters to Aristocrat. A series of targeted acquisitions, investments in cutting-edge hardware and technology, high-profile licenses and market-leading creative talent have positioned Aristocrat and its customers for success across multiple channels.
At G2E 2014, Aristocrat will showcase new developments in its Oasis 360™ systems division. Oasis 360 is the most widely used casino system in North America, and Aristocrat is executing a long-term strategy of investing in the product to deliver the best possible service to customers.
For example, the new Oasis HALo suite is the industry’s most advanced loyalty-building software, and the new OneLink technology brings property-wide bonusing and digital media to the next level. These products are available to casinos across North America, both to Oasis 360 customers and those using another system.
Aristocrat will also feature its award-winning Episodic Bonusing, which was recently named one of the year’s top new slot floor technologies in Casino Enterprise Management’s 2014 Slot Floor Technology Awards. Also on display is the new Elimination Bonusing, a floor-wide bonusing program played on the nCompass media window. Finally, Aristocrat’s new Clash of Coins floor-wide tournament brings interactivity to the next level where players use the casino’s mobile app to collect QR codes from the EGM game screen.
In addition to groundbreaking new systems technologies, Aristocrat will present nearly 200 new games at G2E 2014 along with several innovative new cabinets.

The company’s gaming operations division has a history of delivering proven performance. Buffalo Stampede™ was named one of the industry’s most profitable new games in Goldman Sachs’ 2014 Slot Manager Survey. The Walking Dead™ Slot Game and Batman™ Classic TV Series powered by Wonder Wheels™ also topped industry surveys, and were named among the most anticipated game releases of the year by slot managers.
Aristocrat is building on that performance with a depth and diversity of product offerings and new hardware unlike anything customers have seen before. At G2E Aristocrat will premiere new titles including Sons of Anarchy™, a stunning new video slot that brings the intensity of the TV show to the slot floor for an experience that revs up casino excitement, and Britney Spears®, where players can immerse themselves in a heart-thumping gaming experience backed by everyone’s favorite chart-topping hits from the Princess of Pop.
Ted and Superman™ The Movie pave the future roadmap for the new Wonder Wheels product line, and the latest in the successful Superman franchise, Superman™ Man of Steel™, will also be unveiled at the show. In addition to these appealing licensed themes, Aristocrat will showcase some of its best Hyperlink content including Cashman Fever II, Good Fortune and Pixie Wishes, which combines the best E*SERIES games with the proven success of Hyperlink jackpots.
Aristocrat’s gaming sales division has clearly demonstrated a strong commitment to operators by understanding customers have different wants and needs, and the company delivers with its C*SERIES, E*SERIES and J*SERIES, attracting and retaining a diverse range of players who want different types of gaming experiences.

J*SERIES, for jackpot series, is growing with Dynamite Cash ™ and with Wonder 4™ Jackpot, which brings the incredibly popular Wonder 4 series and adds a jackpot component.
One of the most popular games is better than ever in Wicked Winnings Legends™, with the classic game and an enhanced deluxe version—all in the same cabinet.
With a content-led strategy approaching full momentum, smart acquisitions, full systems solutions, new cabinets and the best portfolio of new game titles in the market, Aristocrat will take customers to the next level across the whole gamut from games to systems.

This year at G2E, Konami will be presenting more new game themes than any other show to date, providing maximum flexibility and diversity of product for operators appealing to a wide range of markets. While Konami’s cabinets and platforms are known for their robust stability, it’s the quality of themes across its cabinet line-up that ranks Konami as top in the industry for game performance and revenue. The company’s latest video platform, KP3® is available in three main cabinets: classic Podium® upright or slant, extra-large Podium Goliath® and the tall-top Podium Monument™. Each of these cabinets leverage Konami’s vast library of high-performing games with unique, cabinet-specific extended features to enhance the base theme’s play experience and create variety on any casino floor.
For example, Gigantic Wheel of Winning™ will be unveiled at G2E and makes the most of Konami’s Goliath cabinet by combining players’ favorite KP3 themes with an oversized mystery wheel bonus. Conversely, guests at G2E will also see new standalone progressives such as Engine Ablaze™ and Pick Strike Quad™ on Podium Monument that use the 32-inch vertical top box to launch high-energy mystery games. Of course, many of Konami’s base game themes can be placed on the classic Podium cabinet with standalone progressives like Fiery Sun Burst™ or linked progressives like Rapid Blitz Riches™—both of which will be revealed this September.
And it doesn’t end with traditional slot themes and progressives. Konami’s SYNKROS® casino management system boasts a number of new features and tools for system-delivered community gaming, via tournaments and bonusing applications that bring yet another element of delight and surprise to casino patrons. Visitors at G2E will experience the full potential of SYNKROS’ True-Time Windowing™ technology, which allows operators to launch unique True-Time Tournament™ games on any video-based EGM. This functionality makes way for products like Konami’s new SynkStart™ real-time group tournaments—to complement its existing player-on-demand offering—and Battle Bonus™ interactive elimination-style community bonusing games.
With the flexibility to supply compelling games themes on multiple form factors, with interchangeable bonus progressives and even floor-wide community gaming through SYNKROS™, Konami gives operators the games they need to appeal to their customer base, diversify their floor and compete with an edge in their markets.
More than ever, casino operators are seeking new opportunities to impact an ever-expanding spectrum of audiences with gaming experiences that keep them coming back. Casinos across the nation are tapping into previously explored realms of marketing, communications, operations and systems technology that require a high level of flexibility and trust from gaming product manufacturers. This is why Konami customers recognize—and G2E attendees will discover—that Konami empowers them to get more from their floor. More than 100 different Konami game themes are in the line-up for G2E, allowing guests to experience the versatility of design, tone and feel that Konami accomplishes in each product. Far more than sheer volume of output, the company delivers an assurance of quality and performance that gaming executives and professionals know will produce strong returns.
Across the packed expanse encountered each year on the G2E show floor, Konami’s booth stands out as one that is always relaxed and inviting. With an abundance of new titles and a fantastic international selection available, guests are able to comfortably explore Konami’s 2014 line-up in a friendly, low-pressure environment. And being Konami, it’s always looking to infuse excitement and fun, so attendees should definitely plan to stop by.
Another high-profile G2E release that gaming professionals won’t want to miss is the new Slot Dispatching on the SYNKROS Konetic Mobile Employee App™. This iOS and Android-compatible mobile application harnesses the advantage of SYNKROS’ real-time data capabilities to empower casino personnel to discover and respond to customer needs in moments for optimal service and efficiency. The all-new Slot Dispatching specifically equips slot attendants and technicians with EGM alerts and service requisitions from anywhere on the property through their mobile device, further expanding Konetic Mobile’s powerful suite of on-site tools and notifications.
Konami’s Dungeons & Dragons® themed slot machines will also be making its G2E debut in the measure of grandeur and fanfare that would be expected for a fantasy franchise of decades-long worldwide acclaim. This recent KP3 Xtra Reward® title on Podium Monument will receive its own showcase display at Konami’s booth—complete with D&D logo premium chairs, custom glowing runes bezel, attention grabbing hand-painted 3D dragon toppers and rotating sign. Both available game themes, Conquests & Treasures™ and Enchanted Riches™, will be featured for adventurers at heart to explore.
Lastly, this year’s G2E attendees will be the first to see an exciting new set of games based on classic Konami amusement IP—a landmark announcement that will have people talking for years to come.

Taking center stage at this year’s booth will be the sheer volume of original titles from the Austin-based manufacturer. With 100 unique themes being shown from Multimedia Games’ vast library of games, it’s clear Multimedia means business when it comes to providing their customers and players with a constant stream of fresh content and experiences. From the entertainment-style games such as Kitty Riches™, Dachshund Dash™ and Goldilocks™, to the gambler-heavy themes like Power Elements™, Black Diamonds™ and Panda™, Multimedia is bringing a little something for everybody.
The high-limit room will be a highlight of the booth, showing a variety of mechanical and high denomination video titles, such as Crystal Jackpots® Smokin’ 777®, Warrior Legacy™ and Smokin’ Hot Gems™, as well as new titles for the premium Skyline™ mechanical reel series, Glitter Gulch™ and Double Jackpot Gems™. A popular theme amongst players nationwide is the vintage-inspired Starry Night® which is now being offered as high-denom video. Another title guaranteed to light casino floors on fire is Crystal Jackpots Smokin’ 777, a 3-reel, 9-line mechanical game featuring a 3-tier progressive and the Crystal Jackpots free spin bonus, which makes its first-ever appearance on mechanical reels.
They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and Multimedia is proving that adage true with the launch of The Texan HDX™, an oversized cabinet that can showcase any of the standard video themes from Multimedia’s game library. Being seen on the big screen for the first time will be the perennial favorites Mega Meltdown® and Starry Night HD, along with Night Hunters™. Standing at nearly eight feet tall, with two video screens measuring 42-inches, this giant of a cabinet will have players thinking bigger is better.
The Apex V™ Topper will make its debut at G2E this year as well, showcased on a bank of Must-Hit Jackpots™ themes, such as Star Dragon™, El Toro™ and Fast Money™. This new topper will attract players to these Must-Hit progressive banks, as players will be entertained watching animations move from screen to screen via the unique dual 15- inch video screen setup on each cabinet.
The High Rise Games® series continues to stand tall, as four new themes are exhibited, Queen of Diamonds™, Pirates Skull & Bones™, The Money Man Big Cash Spin™ and Smokin’ Hot Diamonds™. Players will be living like royalty with Queen of Diamonds, a 9-reel, 32-line theme featuring the never-before-seen Jackpot Jump™, where players pick from one of four cards to find a diamond-suited Jackpot Jump card or Queen of Diamonds card which will jump the progressive prize by one or two tiers. Two other High Rise Games, The Money Man Big Cash Spin and Super Jackpot Wheel, will have players taking their winnings for a spin through the innovative use of jackpot wheels in the bonuses. Players will be Enjoying the View™, as they chase supersized wins with the High Rise Games series.
Back and better than ever is the award-winning TournEvent® slot tournament system, complete with a wireless tablet option, the latest out-of-revenue game and new signage. With the wireless tablet option, casino operators will now be able to sign up players for tournaments remotely. This latest update will allow for a more efficient tournament registration and an overall better tournament experience for the casinos and players alike. Cash Boom Bang with 4 Reel Frenzy™ will take slot tournaments to the next level, as player screens will explode into four sets of reels once a bomb appears. Multimedia’s popular Jump to First™ and Pop-n-Win™ may occur during this time as well, resulting in a frenzy of thrills and bonus points for players.
Multimedia Games will continue to bring their own brand of Austin flair this year to G2E, showing 100 unique themes from their extensive game library, the latest titles for the premium cabinet Platinum MPX™, The Texan HDX, a new premium Texas-sized cabinet standing eight feet tall, the never-before-seen Apex V Topper featuring dual video monitors, and Cash Boom Bang®, the latest out-of-revenue game for the award-winning TournEvent system.
In addition to the new themes and high-limit room, the fully approved, award-winning Platinum MPX cabinet will be at G2E with six themes guaranteed to leave a lasting impression with players. The line-up includes last year’s newcomers, the award-winning Thundering Herd™ and Invasion 2: The Return™, along with two visually stunning games The Valkyries™ and Cabinet of Curiosities™. The final two games, Dracula™ and Haunted House® 2, feature such spooky artwork that Multimedia is giving G2E-goers an early Halloween treat in the form of a game-themed haunted house right in the booth to show them off.
Multimedia Games’ came to play this year with their expansive game library, the latest additions to their Player Cabinet Series, an Austintatious haunted house, and the wildly popular t-shirt bar. So come by the booth and Play Louder®. It’s just more fun.
In the midst of showing new titles, new cabinets and new signage, Multimedia will also be hosting the Championship of their 2014 National TournEvent of Champions tour. Come Oct. 1, 2014, at the Wynn’s XS Nightclub, the country will find out who’s taking home the crown and the title of the Nation’s Best Slot Tournament Player. Consisting of 123 players from 100 casinos, this epic fight to the finish will award $500,000 in cash prizes, with $200,000 going to first place alone.
