Astra prepares stunning product line-up for Northern Showcase

Astra Games will be taking an enviable line-up of games to this year’s Northern Showcase with products spanning Cat C Lite, Cat C and Cat B3. Alan Rogers, Astra Sales and Marketing Director, explained more about the firm’s presence at Northern Showcase, saying: “Every year we are challenged to bring the very best in innovation and creativity to this event and I am delighted to say that our customers won’t be disappointed.

“This year, Astra Games has undertaken a significant new product initiative based on what the industry is informally calling ‘Cat C Lite’. The ‘Type 2’ machine classification – to give it its formal title - enables a 20p/£10 stake/prize configuration that, crucially, attracts the lower five per cent rate of Machine Games Duty (MGD).”

He added: “The three models geared toward the new configuration currently on offer, which will be on display at the show, comprise the hugely successful and popular Bullion Bars and Party Time along with Rcade777, a stunning, brand new compendium that features eight of Astra’s top performing titles.”

Housed in the tried and tested Novomatic 623 cabinet, Rcade 777 is a visually stunning compendium, now showcasing Astra’s latest games, all at £10 jackpot. Currently running an eight-game pack, made up from some of Astra’s top performing games, with some new titles and content from Bell Fruit, there’s something for any player to enjoy.

Noted Rogers: “Astra has already received exciting figures from initial tests of Rcade777, indicating that the market is keen to take on board something that is new and full of potential to reinvigorate the business. And buyers can invest with confidence, safe in the knowledge that future game pack releases are expected later on in the year, keeping Rcade 777 fresh and relevant.”

The manufacturer will also be showcasing the return of another Astra icon, Party Time Duo. This tried and tested Cat C product now comes complete with the £100 jackpot in a classic three-reel format. Take a seat at this two-player Tiger cabinet and relax with the classic fun game of Party Time. Available on a number of stakes and jackpots, this machine is ready to fit into any venue with ease.
