“We have a great line-up of products due to be launched at upcoming IAAPA and EAG. We are once again bringing huge Hollywood blockbuster IPs to the amusement market,” said Justin Burke, general manager and sales at Sega Amusements. “While we cannot discuss details just yet, the licences are set to bring energy and excitement to the video redemption category.
