PUTT Championship Edition gets an update; a little more on Galactix

I saw PUTT Championship Edition at Betson’s IAAPA booth but what I didn’t realize at the time was that they were showcasing an updated version of the game there. Thanks to a press release sent out today, now I know that, and knowing is half the battle. The other half would be the details – they have added a new course and an option for ticket dispensation so the game can serve as a redemption game if the operator so desires it. The 9-hole course addition brings the number of  holes up to 27 and hopefully will equal more replay value for operators who have already purchased the game.

In addition to that we received a press release for one of the more interesting video redemption games seen at IAAPA, Galactix by Chicago Gaming. Even though it’s a redemption game I find this to be great concept as the way they made the game is a bit different from other things I have seen in the coin-op sector in a while. Galactix is a six player game where the coin serves as your controller – once inserted it launches a missile on the screen and if you time it just right you can hit the center target for 100 tickets. This is quite difficult of course as there are many obstacles in the way so it’s more likely that you’ll end up hitting a target of lesser ticket value. It’s both simple and eye-catching, so I imagine that it will be a popular item for redemption centers that pick it up.

For the press releases on both of these games, hit the link below.

PUTT! Championship Edition now even better with

New Course and Ticket Dispenser Option

Carlstadt, NJ December 9, 2009 – The 2009 IAAPA Trade Show was the perfect stage for Chicago Gaming to launch its new six-player redemption game GalacTix. No one ever dreamed that lightning would strike twice when they announced and introduced a new course and ticket dispenser option for its already wildly successful and interactive novelty game, PUTT! Championship Edition.

PUTT 66 is a new 9-hole course that has been added to the existing two 9-hole courses, bringing the total to 27 holes of competitive miniature golf action. PUTT 66, a 50’s retro themed course is complete with all of the challenges and short cuts that made the first two courses highly entertaining. “The added depth will certainly promote repeat play and raise the bar on the competitive nature of this game,” stated Doug Duba, President of Chicago Gaming. “As an added bonus, we have decided to reward early adopters of PUTT! Championship Edition, with a $500.00 value upgrade at “No Charge” as a special thanks!”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Chicago Gaming successfully launches GalacTix

Into orbit at 2009 IAAPA Trade Show

Carlstadt, NJ – December 8, 2009 Chicago Gaming chose the 2009 IAAPA Trade Show, the world stage for the amusement industry, to launch its latest winning redemption product, GalacTix. This six-sided, replica space rocket was seen by trade show visitors and coin machine distributors as possibly the hit of the show in the new redemption products category. In view of the many other new redemption products that were on display at the show, that is quite an accomplishment.

What makes GalacTix so special is that it has the element of a quick coin action game with a unique blend of video gameplay in a very attractive and space efficient package. The cabinet resembles a space rocket ready for blast off designed with six player stations. Players peer into the windows of the rocket ship and catch a glimpse of the galaxy below. At the center of the galaxy is an alien mother ship holding a jackpot of tickets that is guarded by a relentless fleet of fierce guardian space ships. The object of the game is for the players to drop a coin, which will launch a missile toward the mother ship and send the missile past the guardian space ships scoring a direct hit in the opening of the mother ship and being awarded the jackpot total.

The coin action is quick and the game action is furious as players play against each other or as a team and drop coin after coin through the six coin mechanisms. Imagine that, six times the earning potential in one cabinet. “With a smaller footprint and more than half the cost of most 6 station pushers, GalacTix is an Out of This World Deal”, exalted Tony Maniscalco, BPP National Sales Manager. One needs to look no further than February 2010, for GalacTix to touch down in arcades across the globe and propel redemption earnings into orbit.
