ver since the introduction of the new Pinnacle upright cabinet from APEX gaming back at the London ICE this year, operators and players have only had eyes for this product. The combination of top design, aesthetics, quality and durability has convinced customers all around the world. “The demand for Pinnacle took off from day one”, explains Johannes Weissengruber, CEO and founder of APEX gaming.
“Thus, we prioritized the development of the slant top cabinet”. And it was this slant top cabinet that was unveiled at the ENADA. The Pinnacle SL is the new slant top solution from APEX gaming. Incorporating two 26” monitors, all the latest technology and utilizing APEX gaming’s patented cooling system, the response was excellent at the ENADA. “We were exhibiting on our customer’s stand this time at the ENADA Rome. The response from visitors on the B Plus stand to the Pinnacle SL was phenomenal. People were playing on them practically all the time over the three days of the exhibition”, observes Weissengruber.
The ENADA Rome was furthermore treated to an innovation that has been tailored specifically to the needs of the Italian VLT market. In-depth experience, coupled with focused research and development, has brought about a jackpot system that was a focal point at the exhibition. APEX gaming presented its Jackpot Mania progressive jackpot for the very first time. Each and every of the five games has its own jackpot progressively linked together. This means that five individual jackpots will be live at the same time.
There are individual jackpots for the games Leonardo’s Code, Arriva, Ocean Tale, Legend of the Sphinx and Red Hot Fruits. Thorough research and development has calculated that the maximum jackpot – namely 500,000 euros – can be cracked once a week when two thousand APEX gaming machines are linked together.
“The Jackpot Mania mirrors our company philosophy – of taking gaming to the next level. Now progressive jackpots will be taken to the next level as well”, explains Weissengruber. The individual jackpots reward players who wish to continue focusing on their favourite game. The fact that the maximum jackpot can mathematically be cracked every week when just two thousand APEX gaming machines are linked together underlines the real benefit of operating APEX gaming VLT’s.
“Our experience, design quality and passion for games are also united with what we are confident will be the oncoming player favourite – the Jackpot Mania”, concludes Weissengruber.
