Redemption and prize payout machines will feature heavily for Electrocoin at EAG with a number of new products being exhibited including Skill Cut, which is expected to be big hit for 2019.

Skill Cut will stand out in any FEC location and its simplicity is the major attraction, players just need to cut the thin string to win the eye-catching big prize,” said Electrocoin’s John A Stergides. “It has been testing very well and EAG will see the launch of a range of multicolour cabinet options as we go into full production.”

Drop a Winner is another new game that has tested superbly and will also be on display. By pushing a button players must correctly release a ball into one of the three winning raised holes to win the prize or redemption tickets. Available with different designs and as redemption only, Drop a Winner is a sure winner for any FEC or single site operator.

Electrocoin will also present the exciting Hit and Smash: “A classic carnival game whereby players must throw the balls and ‘Hit and Smash’ bottles knocking them down, to earn and accumulate points,” remarked Stergides.

This unit can be redemption or capsule vending based and presented with LEDS, bright colours in a durable metal cabinet, Hit and Smash is certain to light up EAG.

The hugely popular GoGo Chicken will also be making an appearance along with Digital Centre’s Panther Revolution Photobooth – which has already proven itself in the marketplace.

Stern Pinball will as ever have a presence at EAG, displaying the new Beatles Pinball machine. “This game has an enormous appeal,” said Electrocoin’s John Stergides, “The license took over 10 years to obtain and it’s the first ever Beatles pinball. We will be displaying the gold edition which is limited to only 1614 pieces globally and we expect it to be a very popular pinball machine.”

Stern will also present a new marquee title alongside the Deadpool pinball.

Konami’s latest dance video game DDRA will also be on show alongside their new closed loop pusher Marble Fever – an exciting new redemption game from Konami which will be debuting in Europe will definitely be drawing in the crowds.

With redemption becoming increasingly important for FECs, Electrocoin has established itself as the ‘one stop shop’ for ticket management, with the Galileo tickets eaters and the new Elmac WINMT SQL system for single and multiple sites. The FEC sector is also increasingly looking at going cashless and with Electrocoin providing support in the UK in the shape of Intercards system, which allows a location to go either cashless with e-tickets or combine it with coin-play and redemption tickets.

Electrocoin’s John A Stergides indicated his eagerness to get to the year off to a flying start, stating: “Whilst Electrocoin attends a number of shows, EAG is the one that sets the marker for the coming season. With a number of new and exciting products, whether you operate FEC, AGC or single sites, there will be something for everyone so make sure to visit Electrocoin on stand 515.”
