Kick off for Cash Connection™

Cash Connection™, a linked progressive jackpot system, produced by Austrian Gaming Industries GmbH (AGI), was installed at Spielbank Hittfeld, Germany early in April this year. Mr. Hartmut Meier, Slot Manager of Niedersächsische Spielbanken, finds Cash Connection™ a perfect addition to the game offering and a value-add on the slot floor. “The combination of Gaminator™ double-monitor cabinets in elegant silver, showing the 5-reel video slot game Beetle Mania™, one of the most successful games of AGI together with the 60-inch plasma screen, displaying attractive animations and the chance that every game played may win a jackpot, brings fun and excitement to the whole casino. We started with 8 machines and we are sure that our guests will love Kenny Cash, the animated character in the jackpot feature.”

When a jackpot is randomly triggered, Kenny Cash appears on the machine to celebrate the win and start the jackpot feature. During the jackpot feature 3 jackpot selection games are played to decide which of the 4 jackpot levels, MEGA, MAXI, MIDI, or MINI is awarded. During each jackpot selection game the player stops the reels at any time, by pressing any button while the reels are spinning, to try and collect as many cheques on the centre line as possible. Cheques and banknotes are added to the cashometer. At the end of the feature the final value of the cashometer shows which jackpot level the player has won. Each game played increases the value of the progressive jackpot prizes.

Additionally, Novomatic’s innovative 60-inch plasma technology, cutting edge graphics and the possibility of connecting up to 24 machines makes this exciting and action packed linked progressive jackpot system highly attractive to operators and players.

Mr. Jens Halle, Managing Director of AGI, is very pleased with the development of Cash Connection™: “Spielbank Hittfeld is the first spielbank casino in Germany where the complete system has been installed. Further installations are scheduled soon for Spielbank Wiesbaden. And by the end of this year our customers will have the possibility to choose from three more video games in addition to Beetle Mania™.”
