ACOS exhibitors rise to the challenge
The eagerly anticipated 2022 edition of the Autumn Coin-Op show (ACOS) will take place on October 19-20 at West London’s ILEC Conference Centre. The show’s organisers have confirmed strong exhibitor support from many of the most exciting businesses in Amusements and Leisure, matched by solid visitor registrations.
Organiser Karen Cooke said: “ACOS is regarded as the UK Industry’s greatest Networking event, but in truth, everything starts with our exhibitors; they are the mainstay of the event. Because of ACOS’ tight UK focus, exhibitors are rewarded with a rich supply of influential visitors. They have risen to the challenge by scheduling exciting new product releases for the show.”
Tony Morrison, group sales director of exhibitor Innovative Technology, added: “Over the two days visitors and exhibitors can see the latest products from the industry’s key players ahead of the international shows. ACOS is an informal but focused event where all UK manufactures, operators & retailers can meet and network in a relaxed setting, all under one roof.”
Electrocoin has been a supporter of ACOS from the show’s inception and can always be relied upon for engaging and innovative games to delight players. The company’s John A. Stergides confirms that the Electrocoin stand will premier Colour Match, a new fast-paced skill game that tests the speed and coordination skills of the whole family.
John A. Stergides said: “On test, the reaction to Colour Match has been very positive. It’s a 100% skill game that really puts players to the test. Players aim to beat the top score and will play repeatedly to do so or beat the scores of friends and family.
“This is a skill game that can be placed in any location including, but not limited to, restaurants, pubs, fish and chip shops, and retail, where other machines cannot reach or be placed.”
Kevin Temple, director of sales for NOVOMATIC Gaming UK has confirmed a perfectly timed and brand-new Halloween themed game for the B3 NovoLine game compendium. Visitors to the NOVOMATIC Gaming UK stand will also experience the latest thirty-three title B3 NovoLine game pack, with enhancements of iconic favourites as well as completely new titles. Also from NOVOMATIC Gaming UK, the Thaumic cabinet featuring the Magic Games Premium HD Cat C game pack plus new CASH CONNECTION titles on the B3 NovoLine platform that mirror the casino B1 offering. Visitors to NOVOMATIC Gaming UK will also see the new Minislots Digital Cat D machine with a wireless charging dock and the capability to showcase videos and bespoke advertisements.
Playsafe Systems has announced the launch of a new machine management software tool at ACOS. ‘Click,’ developed in association with VMA Systems, is a modern, cloud-based machine and Redemption management system, perfect for smaller independent operators who self-manage machines.
Ian Fuller, Playsafe managing director, said: “Click is not a replacement for our existing Quantum system; it is a completely different proposition without the levels of integration required by Quantum customers. The modern intuitive dashboard allows operators to track machine data and manage their Redemption quickly and easily – driving profits and facilitating decision making.”
“We designed Click to be easy to use and perfect for business owners and managers who may not have used a machine management system before,” added David Middleton, Managing Director at VMA Systems.
“Click is specifically aimed at the gaming arcade market and is not a one-size-fits all solution. We can’t wait to show it to the industry at the ACOS show – which is the perfect launch venue for this product.”
Playsafe will also be displaying the Thomas 8021C and 8026C PayStation models, ideal for busy arcade environments, fully integrated with Quantum and Quantum TITO and now with Chip & Pin and contactless technology. Visitors may also request a demonstration of the latest version of the Quantum system – Version 6.2, featuring real-time alerts, a new bankable cash report and data through the network for non-data port machines using GBG Data Protocol.
