Redemption products will feature highly among UDC’s offerings at this year’s show, including some of the latest products from American redemption powerhouse Benchmark Games, which will make their European debuts, fresh from being launched at IAAPA in Orlando, Florida in November. These will include Power Drop X-Treme, a brand new single player ball bouncing game, designed with space optimisation in mind, and Chaos!, which Green explains: “takes the same theme and runs away with it into new territory, including exciting video graphics and a simultaneous 16 ball drop feature.”
On the air hockey front, UDC presents two new European models this year, both featuring optional redemption ticket payout: a waterproof Polish model called Arctic and a curved, highly polished table called Fantasy Air Game from Spain with fast and furious play. For younger children there is the two player Double Shot redemption basketball game, “perfect for playing as a family,” Green explains, “kids and adults can go one-on-one at the same time.”
Visitors can expect to see all of this and more, along with old favourites at EAG 2016 by heading to UDC stand (number 500) just inside the main entrance to the hall.
