The Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years in terms of membership and influence. If you haven’t been paying attention lately, or if you need a refresher, there are many reasons to support AGEM. The advantages of membership are great and varied.
AGEM is quickly proving to be influential throughout the gaming industry, fulfilling a goal of its executive director Marcus Prater. With 100 members from across the world, the association is growing strong, and for good reasons. Prater points out that for $2,500 a year, which is the cost of a bronze membership, “Companies get tremendous representation. The benefits are dramatic for small companies and large.” Financial benefits include discounts for G2E, G2E Asia and other trade shows, advertising discounts with Casino Enterprise Management along with exclusive podcast opportunities, access to the endorsed service provider program, and the ability to invite customers to the half-a-million dollar AGEM party at G2E.
The benefits go beyond these obvious financial perks. But you don’t have to take Prater’s word for it.
Robert Miodunski, a gaming industry veteran, is now interim CEO at American Gaming Systems (AGS). One of his first actions was making AGS an AGEM member company. “I think in the first two or three days I was here I told Marcus to send me the information so we could get signed up. It’s a great industry association.”
Miodunski was lured out of retirement by San Francisco-based Alpine Investors to help with its goal of making AGS a more influential player in the gaming industry. When originally asked if he had interest in the position, Miodunski says he had never heard of the company. “It’s a company that wasn’t very well known; it was predominately a Class II in Oklahoma and branched out from there.”
Miodunski says, “When we were on the AGEM agenda for review, because memberships have to be approved, a lot of the people were scratching their heads because they had never heard of the company, either.” Today, it’s a different story. “If you said today, ‘Who is American Gaming Systems?’ I don’t think there would be a member of AGEM that didn’t know who we are now.”
AGS is now based in Las Vegas, with most of its manufacturing taking place in Oklahoma. The company is well known in Oklahoma, where it has about 7,000 machines under contract under revenue sharing. It is also starting to gain traction in California, Mexico, Arizona, Florida, Maryland and other jurisdictions.
Miodunski says AGEM has helped the company in other ways as well. For example, when AGS had concerns, as others did, regarding video gaming licensing in Illinois, AGEM was on the case. “Without a vehicle or a venue to address those issues, everybody would be off trying to do their own thing in a disjointed fashion. It just wouldn’t be very effective.” Miodunski says smaller companies, like AGS, would have an even harder time getting their point across to regulators.
When it comes to new or unknown companies, Prater says, “If you have a company that is trying to get into gaming or is in gaming but really not on the radar, by joining AGEM you give your company an instant stamp of credibility.”
Miodunski adds that AGEM presented AGS executives with increased abilities to make connections with other industry leaders. “For a company our size, any small company that wants to be involved in gaming should be a member of AGEM. Just the networking itself, the ability to get on the phone and call Marcus and say, ‘Hey, I’m trying to get a hold of such and such company’ or ‘I need the AGEM list to see who’s already doing these kinds of things.’ It’s just invaluable, and having a guy like Marcus that knows everybody in the industry is just invaluable. It would take an inordinate amount of time for an individual on his own, or an individual company, to try to sort it all out without that access through AGEM.”
AGEM also helps members be more aware of issues facing the industry across the world. Mark Lerner is AGEM’s treasurer and has been involved with the association from its beginning as it dealt with an issue in the Nevada legislature. He is currently the senior vice president for law and government, secretary and general counsel at Bally Technologies. Lerner says, “To be in the know these days, AGEM is the place to be.”
Lerner believes AGEM serves two important functions. First, AGEM is the place for manufacturers to share information and network. “We meet monthly and talk about matters of common interest. To the extent we’re able to, in a competitive environment, we cooperate on non-competitive matters of common interest.” That work includes projects like AGEM’s participation in trade shows. “There are certainly some economic incentives for joining AGEM, but the information sharing alone is well worth it,” Lerner says.
AGEM also gives operators the ability to work together in dealing with regulation matters in existing and emerging jurisdictions. “If individual companies go to a jurisdiction and start lobbying for this, that and the other thing, first of all it’s not good for the industry as a whole, I don’t think. Second of all it’s not good for the jurisdiction because they don’t know whom to believe.”
Lerner has seen a need for this common voice again and again as new jurisdictions open. Regulators are leery of trusting individual companies that may be self-serving in their recommendations. He adds, “Whereas when a trade group like AGEM shows up, representing all the major manufacturers and most of the minor ones, they can get perhaps a more objective view of regulators’ proposals and what manufacturers are looking for.”
Lerner says manufacturers are often an afterthought in regulation, as jurisdictions focus on operators and then think about how the rules will impact manufacturers. “Manufacturers, we deal in technology, we’re selling products. We’re a vendor like Dell computers or Microsoft. You need regulations and you need to examine the people and the companies, but the focus should be, could be a lot different than it is for casinos. And very often it isn’t, so we have to fight with that. And AGEM is a wonderful vehicle for doing that.”
Since each manufacturer deals with dozens or hundreds of jurisdictions’ regulations, Lerner says AGEM offers great insight into what works and what doesn’t. Lerner alone, for example, is licensed in 197 jurisdictions. “Manufacturers have the broadest, most comprehensive view of gaming regulation,” he says. “Why not be a resource that the regulators can then tap? That’s a function that AGEM can serve.”
AGEM spends significant amounts of time and money to get significant results for its members. Before Prater was executive director of AGEM, he was active on the board. This insight allows him to say that, “We’re tackling much more important issues than we historically have. So that’s a testament to the influence and vision that we wanted to be more than just an ‘under the radar’ organization. We want to be influential throughout the gaming industry.”
AGEM is currently active on a daily basis with the expansion of gaming in Illinois. It is working with the Back to Work Illinois Coalition to ensure gaming expansion goes smoothly. Expansion in Illinois is a 25,000-unit opportunity for manufacturers. If AGEM is successful in also getting Chicago to opt into the expansion, that could mean another 15,000 units needed, totaling 40,000 units over the next three years. Prater says that would impact manufacturers large and small, as well as companies associated with slot machine manufacturers. He says, “Shipping 40,000 units has a ripple effect that’s worth hundreds of millions of dollars for a whole range of companies. So the ripple effect is significant.”
AGEM is, of course, active in Nevada politics, supporting candidates that support the industry and educating the government on the impact its regulations could have. The association spent more than $100,000 in early 2010 to ensure licensing regulations proposed in Nevada were considered with the manufacturers’ perspective in mind.
The association is also active in Mexico. AGEM recently participated in a summit meeting in Mexico City that brought the leading suppliers and operators in Mexico together. Prater says AGEM’s goal was to try to influence the evolution of the market “from sort of a rogue market to a regulated, legitimate market.”
Part of AGEM’s efforts to make an impact is the $300,000 donation the association recently concluded making to the College of Southern Nevada to start a slot technician curriculum. Prater says, “That’s significant not just in terms of the money contributed, but to start something that will carry on for years and is very important.”
Prater’s belief in AGEM comes down to its core purpose and strength. He says, “I believe in AGEM from the simple standpoint that there’s strength in numbers and there’s power behind one voice. And typically if there are significant issues affecting one supplier, then all the other suppliers are dealing with the same thing.”
“I can tell you that, in my now 10 years of being associated with this organization, working together has been very easy and everyone recognizes it’s the right thing to do,” Prater says.

G2E Theme/Key Messages: Experience. Performance. Innovation.
At this year’s G2E, ATRONIC and SPIELO will be proudly unveiling DEAL OR NO DEALTM Join‘N Play®, a multimedia-rich and innovative community game that heavily features Howie Mandel. The package contains both player and operator-friendly features like stress-free bonus eligibility, player choice and strategy, qualification volatility, a side jackpot for max betters, clear incentive and reward for betting up, and a guaranteed scheduled community bonus.
Join‘N Play is powered by the G2S-based GAMEBOSSTM controller and features a brand new cabinet, the VU SLANTTM. The base game has 243 ways to win and is fully themed to DEAL OR NO DEAL. There are three additional mystery bonuses and a unique approach to community bonus eligibility. All this anticipation and excitement leads to an exciting group play bonus of camaraderie and light-hearted competition broadcast on five giant 46-inch LCDs.
They will also debut the first batch of new game families. These are value-added core games, each with a distinct branded theme presented with multiple math models and multiple graphic skins. The first, CashPot™, is a family that features a wild-substituting and classic-looking character, the CashPot. He substitutes and multiplies by 3X, 5X or 10X on top of no-nonsense volatile core games. Another family, Bigger Bet Bonus™, combines free game innovation with a smart simple concept: Why not let players have the choice to bet on their free games? Not only does this concept offer second-guessing and more excitement; it also provides operators with coin-in during a normally idle time.
TOURNAMASTER® has been a tried-and-true product, providing a market edge and driving many sales. This year at G2E, TOURNAMASTER is getting a graphic and feature face-lift, modernized with variable machine selection, more rounds of play, better data control and display improvements, and powered with the companies’ own GAMEBOSS controller. The INTELLIGEN™ video central system will also be on display, featuring a number of new value-added features for government-sponsored customers.

In addition to a North American casino section, the booth will feature an international casino section showcasing exciting products and services relevant to international customers, along with a government-sponsored section. ATRONIC and SPIELO will kick off the show with star power as Howie Mandel, the official face of DEAL OR NO DEAL Join‘N Play, will make an appearance to mingle with customers and pose for photos. Also on hand will be four of the original DEAL OR NO DEAL models, who will surely attract a crowd.
ATRONIC and SPIELO will once again be providing customers with re-usable memory sticks along with Join‘N Play themed hand sanitizers. And as in years past, they are the exclusive G2E show bag sponsors.

At G2E, Bally will feature its new Pro Series™ cabinets using the power of the new ALPHA 2™ platform. This powerful platform is optimized for dual screen, multigame; uses HD video technology for 3-D graphics, animations, and up to a four-monitor play experience; supports both existing and new game libraries; and is network and server-based ready.
Bally will also be showing the following games:
Betty Boop’s Love Meter™
Bally brings back the sexy animated cartoon character from the mid-1930s in Betty Boop’s Love Meter, featured on the Pro Series Upright cabinet with a towering Love Meter top-box where players can win credits, free games and other bonus game features. There’s even a special Love Meter feature called How Hot Are You?, in which players put their hands on the iDeck™ to get their “love temperature” taken.
The first Pro Series game with a spinning wheel, Cash Wizard utilizes the power of Bally’s ALPHA 2 platform to its full extent. This bonus-laden game captivates and delights players with three base-game bonuses and two Wizard Bonus Bet mystery bonuses. A whimsical wizard and his pet dragon cavort across the screen, activating these three mystery wheel, bonus-bet progressives that occur every 13 plays.
Bally leads the industry in interactive gaming with its U-Spin gesture-control technology, first introduced in Cash Spin. With U-Spin, the player gets to touch the screen and spin the bonus wheel left or right as if it were an actual physical wheel.
Bally introduces Hot Pick™, the follow-on title to Cash Spin. In Hot Pick, players get to choose their own volatility by picking one of six reel symbols that determine how often they will get the U-Spin Wheel Bonus and how much they can win.
Other U-Spin games featured include Vegas Hits™ and Vegas Hits Road Trip™. Bringing an entertaining, retro Vegas experience to the casino floor, these games whisk the player to a nostalgic time where the thrill of 16 bonus possibilities on double, vibrant wheels is a thrilling reality.
Also capitalizing on the U-Spin interaction is Golden Pharaoh™, Bally’s first game title on the unique and high-profile ALPHA 2 Pro Series Upright Hammerhead™ game cabinet.
Floor-wide Promotions with iVIEW Display Manager™ (DM) and Elite Bonusing Suite™
Bally will showcase how iVIEW DM, a player-user interface, enables casinos to present marketing messages, service offerings like beverage ordering, and a number of dynamic bonusing applications anywhere on the main game screen or the top game display.
But the true power of iVIEW DM lies in the synergy with Elite Bonusing Suite and the ability to deliver compelling, floor-wide player bonusing applications right on the main game screen without any interruption to game play. Imagine a bonus wheel on any machine on the slot floor, or a floor-wide horse race taking place on all slot machines.
Bally’s Command Center™ server-based download-and-configuration solution manages the content download of the Elite Bonusing Suite to iVIEW DM, as well as the download of games and firmware updates.

G2E Theme/Key Messages: Ridiculous Reliable Fun
Konami Gaming Inc. is thrilled to launch the ‘50s style themed, 4-level stand-alone progressive, Rock Around the Clock®. This will only be available on Konami’s successful cabinets Advantage 5™ and Advantage Revolution™. At the booth there will be a bank of Advantage 5 Rock Around the Clock, including the themes Rock All Day™ and Party All Night™; and a bank of Advantage Revolution Rock Around the Clock, including the themes Rhythm N’ Riches™ and Shakes N’ Spins™.
Rock Around the Clock: Rock All Day and Party All Night have a base game including a free game and the progressive feature. In the progressive feature the player has a chance to win up to four jackpots for each progressive feature that is triggered. Each jackpot will be presented as a record on a jukebox, and the record needle will act as an arrow. If the needle stops on a Jackpot area of the record, the player is awarded the progressive jackpot associated with that record.
Rock Around the Clock: Rhythm N’ Riches and Shakes N’ Spins have a base game, a Rockin’ and Reelin’ event and a progressive bonus feature, Jukebox Jackpot Feature. This is triggered from the Rockin’ and Reelin’ feature when the reel unit turns and stops on the wheel face. On the top LCD screen, the player is prompted to select a record from a set of three. The selected record reveals a color pattern which is then displayed on the physical wheel. The player then has one spin to win on the progressive amounts, red, yellow and blue, which represent Maxi, Mega and Major respectively.
In addition to Rock Around the Clock Konami will showcase Top Track™, its new Grand Prix-themed, 4-level linked community progressive. Top Track’s community bonus event is an exciting Grand Prix race car theme where eligible players win a chance to race for the progressive. Eligible players are allotted drivers based on bet level. One progressive level is awarded to each race. The bigger the bet, the more chances players have to earn additional drivers. The race is shown on the game screen and on the overhead sign. An overhead sign is required to show attract mode, progressive meters, and to provide audio for the race.
Attendees will walk away with the knowledge that Konami Gaming has made some pretty significant strides in the gaming industry. With the strong performance of the K2V™ video platform on the Podium™ cabinet, coupled with exceptional stepper product such as the Advantage 5 5-reel stepper, Konami Gaming has managed to expand its floor percentage consistently over the last year.
The company’s booth freebies will include miniature squeeze horses with Beat the Field™ logo, miniature Grand Prix cards themed with Top Track, and lots of great Konami-branded items such as bags, lanyards and mints.

G2E Theme/Key Messages: Unleash Imagination
A focus of the booth this year will be on showcasing WMS’ advanced Networked Gaming capabilities, including new Portal applications such as Ultra Hit Progressive®, Winner’s Share™ Peng-Wins™ and Mega Multiplier® Super Shot™. WMS’ Portal applications add unique player experiences to the base slot game. By integrating a second game dynamic with the base game, WMS enables casino operators to extend the life of the base game by offering new entertainment experiences for players.
WMS will also be showcasing new games, such as G+® Deluxe, that are specifically designed to leverage the uniqueness of the Bluebird xD™ gaming cabinet. The Bluebird xD gaming cabinet brings new slot game entertainment to the forefront, as it creates for the first time ever an interactive experience between the gaming cabinet and advanced, networked game play features to offer a fully engaged and entirely unique experience for slot players.

At WMS, imagination and innovation guide the creation of every new product. This approach redefines what a game can be and turns insight into powerful gaming executions. By partnering with WMS, operators will not only entertain their players with the most engaging experiences possible, they’ll be empowered with the most creative solutions for differentiating their floors and growing their businesses. One of the key goals at this year’s G2E is to ensure WMS continues to be recognized as a key partner for operators future investment in innovative gaming technology.

MEI will be introducing the new SC™ Advance at G2E, featuring benefits that will further raise the bar of performance expectations in the metrics that matter most—driving improvements in both the player experience and operator profitability. This is the next generation product of CASHFLOW® SC. Increased value created by SC Advance is highlighted by the following enhancements: an improved recognition system, faster bill-to-bill speed, expanded memory, comprehensive barcode recognition, and upgrade to USB 2.0.
Because the enhancements are localized to the acceptor head, SC Advance can work hand-in-hand with legacy CASHFLOW SC units already in the field. This capability is facilitated by intelligent support tools that will be able to sense the product version and provide the appropriate software.
SC Advance not only is compatible with previous versions, but also with product extensions that have expanded the reach of bill acceptors from the slot machine to the entire cash management process. EASITRAX Soft Count, as an example, has changed rapidly the expectations for what a bill acceptor can offer—building an installed base over 50,000 games in 18 months by improving efficiencies associated with the cash drop process.
This year, MEI produced its 1 millionth CASHFLOW SC. It leveraged the knowledge gained from producing over 1 million units and applied it to the development of SC Advance. Stop by the MEI booth to see it.

Multimedia has a lot of exciting product lines that we will be unveiling at G2E this year. First is our proprietary slot tournament system called TournEvent™, which wowed the slot directors last year. To stay ahead of the competition, we’ve added several new features that will take the tournament experience to another level. The player now becomes more involved within the tournament game.
We’ve added more excitement to our 3-reel mechanicals games with two fun looking games, King Richer and Wild Wheel. Both will grab players’ attention with their unique top-boxes. We are showing an interesting game feature on our 5-reel mechanical game, Koi Pond, which we are branding as Power Stacks.
Maximum Lockdown is a new product line that becomes the bridge between a 3-reel and a 5-reel mechanical game. This hybrid product has three standard reels with two outside reels that act as bonus reels.
Side Action Games give players more for their money with two separate games being played on one spin.
This year will be showing more multi-level progressive games than ever before. We will have stand-alone and linked progressive games for our lottery, Class II and Class III markets.
We are introducing our first slant-top cabinet, and it will be shown with the stand-alone version of our popular Slot Car Speedway games. At the show, eight slant-tops will surround a luxury car, which hopefully spark slot directors to spice up their car give-a-ways with car themed slot machines.
We will hold hourly tournaments on our updated TournEvent tournament system, with iPods as the prize each hour. Our Austin, Texas-themed bar will serve homegrown Texas beers, Lone Star and Shiner Bock the last two hours of each show day.
