GeWeTe unveiled its Cash Recycler Premium to the UK market for the first time at ACOS 2019, with the cash-handling specialist’s UK and Ireland sales manager Mark Edmundson stating the new model “has taken it to the next level.”
After several significant changes in Blueprint’s internal operations, the team took to ACOS to showcase two brand new cabinets, the Wave and the Alphamax, with head of corporate accounts Nicola Wallbank hailing the launch as Blueprint’s “comeback show.”
Blueprint Operations, part of the Gauselmann group of UK facing brands which also includes Regal Gaming, Praesepe, Betcom and GeWeTe, will be using its presence at next week’s ACOS to unveil the new Alphamax cabinet which caters for the specific needs of Category C pub, AGC, bingo and FEC players. The fulfilment of an intensive 12- month programme of R&D, the Alphamax combines outstanding design credentials which include the latest high definition end to end screens alongside advanced technical features including the Merkur MD100 note recycler which enhances acceptance levels and improves security.
Gauselmann UK is celebrating what group business development director Ryan Collinge described as “a fantastic and positive start” to its relationship with Roadchef, following the rollout and installation of over 500 Cat C and B3 machines across 30 motorway service areas.
With Betcom’s latest Cat C title, The Chase, already generating “exceptional” performance figures just weeks after its release, the company’s MD, Simon McCarthy, reaffirms its commitment to the analogue market.
Blueprint Machines enjoyed an extremely positive ACOS show. Customers were particularly interested in the offer to upgrade their machines to the iconic Deal or No Deal (DOND) branded Game-pack on Alpha Star and Genie cabinets. Previously, the best performing Cat C – 25 game compilation – with a performance index currently at 124%, driving very impressive weekly cash box averages – was only available on new Alpha Star purchases.
Community Cash Vault (CCV) and the Bar X Multigame Category C game-packs includes a number of extremely strong titles including King Kong Cash Community and Luck Of The Irish Community, with Eye of Horus and Deal Or No Deal. To complement the already growing popularity of the product Blueprint Machines are launching their Paws of Fury Community game to its customer base in late October.
