In relation to the UK Cat C £100 market, managing director of 24 Seven, Simon McCarthy: said: "As an emerging company it was paramount that we were able to deliver compelling games to t-e market; to achieve this we partnered up from the outset with both Top Dog Games End Pro V Games. Our market share has slowly increased and this has been achieved through the strategy of working closely alongside our partners by releasing more games leading to increased sales. We are totally committed to the Cat C single site market, this has culminated in the latest releases: Hyper Drive, Jumpin Jack Cash and Wild Wild Mist - Tin Can Alley. In addition in the coming months we will release our first B4 machine, Outlaw - Tin Can Alley."
Fresh to the B3 market, Simon McCarthy of 24 Seven Gaming has debuted with all guns blazing - with the company's own Vegas 24/7 machine, complimented by an exciting new range of E Gaming Multi Lotto products. 24 Seven Gaming has something for every B3 operator - available in a number of finance options to suit different budgets. The company has now concluded its successful site testing on its B3 product: Vegas 24/7 due to go into production next month. Some reworking has been carried out as a result of the initial site trial and this has added enhancements to the machine as well as adjusting the profile to better suit the needs of arcade and bingo in the UK. Vegas 24/7 is the first B3 product from 24 Seven Gaming. It's a standalone game on a rebuild Barcrest Rio cabinet, which is retrofitted with Quixant QXI 200 PC technology. It has an attractive Las Vegas theme, with highly unique and entertaining features. Our intention from the outset was to produce a highly entertaining and interactive game format: says 24 Seven managing director Simon McCarthy.-We believe we have achieved this. while offering some-thing unique to the player. As it is also very competitively priced, it offers a niche opportunity for those looking for some-thing different: In addition, and to complement its B3 product range. 24 Seven are also offering an additional Multi Lotto B3 selection from E Gaming.The Multi Lotto product is distributed by 24 Seven in the UK and is currently on site trial "We are very excited about the long-term opportunity for this product in the UK market, as the response to it has been extremely positive," adds McCarthy:We are now looking to include additional game content and E-Gaming has a very strong game content portfolio for us to utilise: The E-Gaming product has already proved itself on site in thousands of European sites."This can be part-way explained by the security of the cabinet and the reliability of the hardware' McCarthy explains. it is available to operators under a number of options including outright purchase. rent, profit share or a fixed daily fee.We have really thought outside-the-box in order to be competitive.
Hyper Drive is 24 Seven's latest Cat C £100, housed in the iPlay cabinet and will be offered to customers and retailers with the aim of securing retailer approval listings over the coming weeks. Hyper Drive has a classic feel to both game play and presentation, and offers the player full interaction whether from reel wins, the three-tier maze feature or the Hi Octane feature, giving cash rewards or entry into the main Hyper Drive feature. This is the first of several models being released into the UK single site market over the coming months from 24 Seven gaming. Simon McCarthy, managing director of the company, said: The release of Hyper Drive is pivotal for us, this demonstrates to both our customers and the UK retailers alike that the release of games from 24 Seven is on the increase." He added: "Our development team is fundamental to our on-going growth strategy and our focus on UK Cat C releases over the coming weeks and months clearly shows the commitment we have to our customers. We believe that the Cat C single site market is still a very viable offering, and as manufacturers we need to ensure we deliver a reliable, cost effective solution for our business partners." 24 Seven will be exhibiting on stand 58 at the forthcoming Autumn Coin Op show on October 14-15 in Chelsea.
Just two years into its career as a Cat C manufacturer, 24 Seven Gaming is presenting the market with another fresh title to whet operator appetites: with Wild Wild West - Tin Can Alley. 24 Seven Gaming has reaffirmed its commitment to the UK Category C sector with a new game release called Wild Wild West - Tin Can Alley. This follows on from the highly successful launch of Blackbeard's Bounty from 24 Seven, which achieved significant retailer approvals. Wild Wild West - Tin Can Alley is poised to offer the UK market a return to 'the good old days' with lots of fun and entertainment offered by the totally unique 'Tin Can Alley' feature. The new game will be released as both a rebuild model and a door kit - in order to offer the widest possible set of cost-effective options for the operator. 24 Seven Gaming managing director Simon McCarthy commented on the new release, saying: "This is our second year in the UK Category C sector and we have once again listened to our customers - the operators - for inspiration when designing this game. We wanted to be in a position to not only offer new product housed in the iPlay cabinet - benefiting from all the latest security features of DES peripherals - but also to continue to offer rebuild product," McCarthy continued. "So, now we have covered the DES options in all of our current rebuild products, as we know that there remains a tough trading pattern in the UK at the moment. We have in fact taken this a step further by also offering a cost-effective 'door kit' for our rebuilt product range, including one for our previous, successful Cat C titles: Black-beard's Bounty. This is yet another example of how we listed to our customers and provide them with both reliable and entertaining products for the UK Category C market place." The future planned releases of new games housed in the iPlay cabinet will be tested and released over the coming months, including Hyper Drive, followed by Jumpin Jack Cash and then Casino Fever. In yet another show of support for the operator, 24 Seven will also soon be releasing their first B4 offering - Outlaw 'Tin Can Alley' - as a rebuild product.
CATEGORY C: Simon McCarthy, managing director of 24 Seven Gaming, talks to Coinslot about the triennial review and the future of the Category C gaming market. Cat C is here to stay, he says, but more innovation and lobbying is needed if the sector is to continue growing. Coinslot: How significant is the Cat C gaming market to your overall level of trade? Simon McCarthy:The Cat C market is fundamental to our business strategy.This sector of the UK market is what our philosophy is based on,being able to offer entertaining Cat C product to the player base. CS: How significant do you think the maximum jack-pot of a machine is in generating cash-box revenue? SM:You need to consider several factors which play key roles in the success of that product. It's the frequency of the win of a jack-pot that players are looking to understand along with the stake ratio as well as the playing time of that game. so whilst the maximum jackpot is the main indicator of whether the player will engage with the product it's also not the only significant factor.As designers we need the ability to innovate and that will only come through the changes in technical standards. CS: What do you think can be done to open-up the Cat C sector to a wider audience? Is this some-thing you are actively pursuing? SM:We need to continue to engage with the lapsed and non-players within venues, this is the only way we will get any continued and sustained growth in the market place. e must from a design principle look out-side of the box. CS: What do you see as being the future of the Cat C market? SM:We believe that the analogue reels product is here to stay. there is nothing wrong with this offering. clearly there is also a growing footprint of digital, but we believe that they will coexist side by side. CS: Finally, what results would you like to see emerge from the next triennial review, as regards to Cat C? SM: In relation to triennial we need to ensure we represent all parties' interests and one way to achieve this is through continual lobbying that is carried out by the trade associations, both BACTA and Gambling Business Group, to ensure a focused and strategic approach.We need parity across all sectors of the market to ensure as businesses we are given a level playing field to compete within the UK entertainment sector.
Simon McCarthy, managing director of 24 Seven Gaming, speaks to Coinslot about meeting changing demands for refurbished machines, and the niche his company is built around. Operators may choose the refurbished market for a variety of rea-sons, but all agree that having a machine off the floor for long is bad for business. And Simon McCarthy, managing director of 24 Seven Gaming, is among the band of people who feel strongly about the appeal of refurbished machines and how the industry should approach these demands. All operators will of course look to maximise their initial investment - to ensure they get the maximum return. This is where 24 Seven aims to provide both rebuild and door kits to our customer base, providing a reliable and well performing product that can be utilised across all retailer estates," he tells Coinslot. We cover Cat C £100 and will cover B4 £400 in the coming months - these categories are being requested by our customers. We also constantly evaluate potential sales of additional categories within the UK." Just how does McCarthy respond to changes in demand for different machines, budgets and services? "Understanding changes in demand is where the relationship with our distribution partners is fundamental. We work together to identify 'off site' stock that has moved down the rent bands -and look to identify models which are able to take a game change. "In relation to rebuild or door kit product produced by 24 Seven, we aim to provide a fast and reliable service. This is a fundamental philosophy of our business model. We ensure that together with our distribution partners all customers are able to get an immediate and effective response to any issues experienced within the field relating to our products."
Looking back on 2015 and ahead to the new year. 24 Seven's managing director Simon McCarthy is hoping that new additions to his company over the last twelve months, coupled with a renewed commitment to analogue Cat C. will pay dividends during 2016. Coinslot: How would you characterise the state of the low-stake machine market at present? Simon McCarthy: For the immediate future,24 Seven has made a commitment to analogue Category C games. The company is excited about offering the UK market a slightly different style of reel-based game over the coming months. This commitment reflects on our understanding of the opportunities that exist within the UK market - our customers are investing in the right product from a performance and cost perspective and our aim at 24 Seven is to offer the operator what they want and need. CS: What were the key products 24/7 Gaming exhibited at EAG 2015? How have they fared throughout the year? SM: In 2015. the first Category C machines to be produced were Wok Around the Clock, which was followed by Blackbeards Bounty. Both performed extremely well; with the latter achieving full retailer approvals a few months later. The next UK showing for 24 Seven was the Autumn Coin-op Show in London. where the company exhibited for the second year running. Once again our presence at ACOS was another pivotal point for 24 Seven Gaming.There were three new Category C titles at the show: Hyper Drive. Jumpin Jack Cash and Wild Wild West -Tin Can Alley. CS: What new products has 24/7 been working on since the last show? What can we expect to see at this year's? SM: 24 Seven's renowned new-build Cat C cabinet called 1-Play' will be on show at EAG 2016 and gives the company great flexibility for game design going forward. The games that will be on show on the Wessex Coin stand (number 130) at the forth-coming EAG will be:Wild Wild West - Tin Can Alley. Hyper drive, Jumpin Jack Cash. Casino Fever and Outlaw - Tin Can Alley. In addition to the 'iPlay' cabinet. the release of both Wild Wild West - Tin Can Alley and Jumpin Jack Cash as rebuild or door-kit options offers total flexibility for our customer base. CS: What were the major business achievements for 24/7 in 2015? How do these position 24/7 for the coming year? SM: 24 Seven Gaming Ltd was pleased to announce the appointment of Ian Rodden as development director during 2015. In this role, Rodden is responsible for generating new and innovative games, as well as supporting the organisation by managing and liaising closely with existing development partners. We are extremely excited that Ian joined to 24 Seven. lan's background and product knowledge within our sector is outstanding, he has a passion for gaming and this has shown in his phenomenal track record. Ian has already demonstrated how he can complement our work and our needs, and we are very pleased to have him as a fundamental part of our team.The first game that comes from Ian's direct involvement within 24 Seven is called Casino Fever and will be on show at EAG 2016.
24 Seven Gaming believes it's onto a winner with its latest offering, Casino Fever, which aims to bring an innovative spin to the Cat C genre. The first game to come out of 24 Seven Gaming designed by Ian Rodden,Casino Fever has his unique signature written all over it. Characterised by a rigorous adherence to technical standards for Cat C while bringing an innovative spin to the genre. "The reaction to Casino Fever at EAG was overwhelmingly positive. People recognized the hallmark of Ian's previous game heritage. but realized the game brought something fresh and new to the sector,' commented managing director Simon McCarthy. Thanks to this unique profile. 24 Seven is convinced that Casino Fever will be the first of a line of successful Cat C releases into the UK market, developed with Rodden's expertise. Casino Fever has a very interactive feel, especially when the player achieves the 'Seventh Heaven' feature on the top Mega Roulette wheel - the player has to repeat the 'combination' of lit roulette wheel sequences - the more successful combinations completed, the higher the players reward. When playing the base game, the player has the ability to complete the 'FEVER' bonus panel through collecting the blue and red dice symbols from the reels.The higher the stake played, the more interaction delivered through the dice activation on the reels. Through the features, the player has the opportunity to`move up'through the three-tiered roulette wheels, moving from the base roulette wheel to the 'Supa' roulette wheel through to the 'Mega' roulette wheel, culminating in the possibility of entering the'Big Money'feature. -Since the machine has been on site test we have the statistics to back up our belief that Casino Fever has managed to create a stake and VTP increase on site, while offering an entertaining format that will appeal to a broader player base than do many other machines currently on the market,- McCarthy said. And it man-ages to achieve this while also offering game elements which will appeal to the more experienced AWP player."
24 Seven's third hi-tech Category C machine Blackbeard's Bounty continues to amass retailer approvals. The feature-rich game has to date received retailer approvals from
- Greene King
- Machine Insite
- Star Pubs & Bars
The addition of a new development director and the continued growth of the company saw 24/7 arrive at ACOS with a newly ramped up pipeline of games to display. "What I want to be doing is at least having product every three months. Rather than, as we have in the past,having to wait six months sometimes before we've had a product,"explained managing director Simon McCarthy. Drawing much of the attention on his stand was rebuild machine Wild Wild West and two new machines that are due to go out on site during the next few weeks - Hyperdrive and Jumping Jack. "hey're being previewed at the show," explained McCarty, We've decided to bring the products so we can show operators what's coming out pre-Christmas in terms of testing and in terms of seeking approvals."
Since it opened for business for the first time in 2013, new kid on the block, 24 Seven Games has set its sights on creating games that make a break from orthodoxy. With the help of a -hopefully - favourable triennial review for the sector, managing director Simon McCarthy is keen for his business to write the next chapter of the Cat C story. For 24 Seven Gaming, the UK Cat C sector remains a keystone in its business strategy. Indeed, there is no room for complacency in this sector, managing director Simon McCarthy explained, if suppliers are to meet the demands of modern players for fresh and innovative games. "As we are all aware,the need to provide our customer base with an attractive and entertaining offering for their leisure spend is the all-important measure of the success of any product offered these days: McCarthy commented. -We are mindful that today's players are always demanding new and innovative approaches for the style of game play on offer within the retailer's locations." And as a newer name in the industry. 24 Seven may be better placed than most to make a clean break from orthodoxy and offer an alternative product experience for players, an approach McCarthy believes is necessary to I bring in more players and I - just as importantly - keep them there for longer. "As a relative newcomer to the market, we felt that we needed to offer some-thing different in terms of games design. We believe that the player needs a different style of game to complement the current offering on site: McCarthy said "Our aim here is simple: to both grow the player base and increase the time spent playing machines on site, both of which we believe are achievable" McCarthy also explained how a little help from the triennial review in the form of a relaxing of technical standards could go a long way in allowing companies like 24 Seven to innovate and bring fresh air into the genre, but whether these changes would be implemented within a reasonable time frame remains a key concern. He commented: "As an industry we are all anticipating an announcement from DCMS in relation to the triennial review. Our concern is that any time frame for consultation and ultimately any implementation date is still some time off yet, and our industry needs something to happen sooner rather than later, to be able to move forward: He added: "It is essential that any review of stake and prize be both fair and reasonable to allow the industry to move forward. In addition, we need to ensure parity with comparable product within the high street. We are talking about delivering an innovative and entertaining product and to do this we also need to have the ability to be more creative with the style of games offered. Currently the 'technical standards' that accompany any Cat C design are restrictive, and this must be addressed.
Hyper Drive, the latest Cat C £100 model to be released from 24 Seven Gaming, is set to be show-cased at the Autumn Coin-Op Show. The company's latest release is housed in the iPlay cabinet and will be offered to customers and retailers with the aim of securing retailer approval listings over the coming weeks. According to 24 Seven, Hyper Drive has a classic presentation and game-play experience. Players can nonetheless enjoy interactive features such as reel wins, the three-tier maze feature entry and the Hi-Octane feature, which gives cash rewards or entry into the main Hyper Drive feature. Hyper Drive Cat C £100 is the first of several models being released into the UK single site market over the coming months from 24 Seven Gaming. Managing director Simon McCarthy said: The release of Hyper Drive is pivotal for us. This demonstrates to both our customers and the UK retailers alike that the release of games from 24 Seven is on the increase. The focus on UK Cat C releases over the coming weeks and months clearly shows the commitment we have to our customers. "Our development team, which prises internal development resources and that of our development partners fundamental to our ongoing grow strategy. We believe that the Cat C single site market is still a very viable offering - as manufacturers we need ensure we deliver a reliable, cost effective solution for our business partners.
24 Seven pride themselves on their ability to guide their development team and partners in the right direction. According to managing director, Simon McCarthy, listening to their loyal customer base and adapting to the market is at the heart of their success. The current climate in the UK single site business is tough at the moment, to say the least. Both large and small operators alike are having to look long and hard at their capital expenditure. which is forever being scrutinised. To this end, 24 Seven Gaming aims to provide both cost effective new (iPlay cabinet) and rebuild (Ex BFG Eclipse) products. This philosophy is encapsulated in the latest game release Wild Wild West - Tin Can Alley Cat C.£100. Following on from early site trials, the full production of Wild Wild West - Tin Can Alley is now well underway. The release of this product to customers is expected to commence over the next few weeks. The game will be released as both a rebuild and door kit option - making this a totally viable and cost-effective purchase for the operator. Simon McCarthy, managing director of 24 Seven Gaming, said: -We have made the strategic decision to release this product as a door kit as well as a traditional rebuild product This follows on from a review of what the UK operators' requirements are. -We have now covered DES as an option within all of our current rebuild product, this is to ensure that the operator has total confidence in the security and reliability of our rebuild/door kit products.This is yet another example that we listen to our customers and provide them wit both dependable and entertaining product to the UK Cat C market place: In addition to the release of Wild Wild West -Tin Can Alley 24 Seven will releasing the high successful Black beards Bounty game format in rebuild/door kit option over the coming weeks.Th will be released following feedback from the market and in line with their distribution release schedule. Based on the exciting game format of 'Tin Can Alley' 24 Seven plans to implement the feature into future game release Their next rebuild release after Wild Wild West -Tin C Alley, will be Outlaw 'Tin Can Alley' - a B £400 product.
As with all tech-based industries, innovation is essential - not least for B3 developers engaged in an on-going battle to wrestle business back from the B2 market. And for design and development company 24 Seven, the key is in the regulatory landscape. "We want to be allowed to offer additional machine features, but this is not possible under the current technical standards," commented managing director Simon McCarthy. "Even though these features are still in operators' premises as legacy machines, produced prior to Gambling Act 2005 came into force." The priority for 24 Seven is to maximise both entertainment value and time on machines; an objective that could be achieved by re-introducing sought-after features that were disallowed in the 2005 Act. "These features remain popular, but unfortunately we currently have to work with what is allowed within the current stake and prize regime," said McCarthy. "We feel that our hands are tied behind our backs when trying to be innovative in delivering games that allow the industry to provide the customer with the entertainment they want." Whilst the current £2 stake/£500 jackpot format has been well received by players and operators, McCarthy believes there is also scope to expand the offering further. The £2 stake/£500 Jackpot is attractive, but we should still push for at least a statutory minimum increase via the 'triennial review' process," he said. With technology moving forward at a rapid pace and products such as server-based gaming becoming increasingly popular, the B3 market is a market in transition. For development companies such as 24 Seven, this means catering to existing demand while keeping one eye fixed firmly on the future. "We recognise that there are operational benefits to sever-based gaming, and that is where the strategic alliance between 24 Seven and E-Gaming comes into force," commented McCarthy. But we still believe that the market will invest in stand-alone, highly entertaining product and this is what we can offer through Vegas 24/7." As the passionate B2 and B3 debate rages on and speculation continues over who will hold the reins in Westminster, the company hopes there may be a solution on the horizon. "We are looking for parity at the end of the day in the marketplace - a conclusion to the current debate," said McCarthy. "This will allow our customers to concentrate on doing what they do best: operating entertaining products and engaging with the customer base." According to 24 Seven's Simon McCarthy, the industry should be able to get the best out of its B3 machines - but current legislation is standing in the way of innovation.
Former Red Gaming director Ian Rodden has joined 24 Seven Gaming as the company's new development director. Rodden will be responsible for generating new games as well as managing and liaising closely with 24 Seven's existing development partners, including Top Dog Games and Pro V Games. Rodden has more than 30 rears of experience in designing and implementing games within the UK and international 'pay to play business sectors.He was a part owner and director of Red Gaming before it was sold to SG Gaming and, prior to Red Gaming, worked at JPM in research and design. He said "I am thrilled and very excited to be joining a company with such a like-minded passion for this industry. It was important for me to align myself with a company that shared the same philosophies as myself. I have also moved back to South Wales, back to where my journey began in this industry" Simon McCarthy, managing director at 24 Seven, said "Given Ian's heritage in the industry and his product knowledge. he's going to utilise that experience and bring it into the 24 Seven branded experience" McCarthy added that, with Rodden's assistance, the company could begin to develop new titles that broke the mould. "The games will be something very, very different. It will be something that will be able to go on-site and go alongside the existing portfolio of products from 24 Seven. It's about being able to engage with the player base, it's about being able to do things differently" he explained.
24 Seven Gaming is gearing up for the full release of its latest creation, with a number of major retailers delivering the thumbs up for Blackbeard's Bounty over the past few weeks. CLMS, Greene King and Machine Insite have all confirmed retailer approvals fot the company's latest hi-tech Cat C machine.
We are obviously thrilled at how will Blackbeard's Bounty is performing on site and to receive the seal of approval from three of the UK's key retailers is most important for this latest model" said 24 Seven managing director Simon McCarthy.
"We anticipate more approvals over the coming weeks on this model. This latest news rounds off a great show at EAG where our distribution partners Wessex Coin and Blue Monkey Sales did an excellent job and all of our products in the Cat C and B3 sectors were very well received by customers."
The release of Blackbeard's Bounty will be accompanied by a new chrome and black finish for the company's iPlay cabinet, which received its premier outing on the Wessex Coin stand at EAG. The game will also be available as a rebuild machine from G Squared Games.

Simon McCarthy and 24-Seven Gaming are featured in a full page article in the November 2013 issue of G3 Magazine. Simon talks about his history in the Gaming industy and about the bright future ahead for 24 Seven Gaming. In addition to the article G3 have also feature our latest game "Crazy Vegas" in the products section of the magazine
The 1st production run of Crazy Vegas Cat C £70 machines have rolled off the production line in Cardiff for 24 Seven Gaming Ltd.
Simon McCarthy of 24 Seven Gaming commented "this is a very prestigious moment in time for us, this is the 1st model on Cat C (£70) released by 24 Seven Gaming. Crazy Vegas has been in development for a while, we have been play testing and enhancing the game play, it is imperative that the game is attractive and entertaining to the players", McCarthy went on to state "it has been an interesting and challenging 9 months in getting the product to market. The production and procurement facilities are outsourced and our choice of 'build partner' is second to none - it is like having our own production facility but with all the benefits of the management being 'outsourced'.
Ultimately this is a 24 Seven Gaming product with our badge, therefore our build quality and reputation is of paramount importance to us - this is why our 'build partner' gives us 'peace of mind'. I also have to thank both David Cornelius of Cornelius Electronics and Andy Thompson of Wave Design for their invaluable support and assistance in the procurement and manufacture process of Crazy Vegas ensuring a quality market entry product".
Simon McCarthy of 24 Seven Gaming has announced the launch of their 1st UK Cat C model.
"It is with both pleasure and excitement that we can announce the launch of Crazy Vegas, this is the culmination of several months design and development for us, Crazy Vegas is the 1st in a range of Cat C (£70) models to be released by 24 Seven Gaming".
Crazy Vegas has been developed to utilise Scorpion 5 technology, and is rebuilt into the Orbit cabinet or is offered as a 'conversion' on existing customer base machines.
McCarthy went on to say "in the setting up of a new company entering the manufacturing and design arena of 'pay to play' gaming the challenge was always to find a 'like minded' business partner when it came down to games design. I have to say that the partnership that has been forged between that of 24 Seven Gaming and Pro V Games of Oldham headed up by Paul Howarth has been excellent.
We find ourselves at a point in time whereby the launch of a new brand coincides with the pending implementation of £100 on Cat C games, the opportunities are there, it is a case of realising those opportunities and delivering excellent performance and reliable product. I also have to say that the support of operating companies and retailers along with the industry's supply chain has been overwhelming and for this I am extremely grateful".
On Friday 11th October 24 Seven Gaming sponsored a 4-ball golf team that played in the South Wales BACTA charity golf day.

I am sure that a very enjoyable day was had by one and all, especially for the worthwhile causes that BACTA sponsors".
