The Specialist Buyers Guide for the Amusement and Gaming Industry
Universal Space's new machines so far this year has to be the prettiest cabinet on the block, Fruit Mania Xtreme. Originally launched at the end of 2012 at IAAPA in Florida, it captured the imagination of distributors and operators alike. Shipping began in January and since this time Fruit Mania Xtreme, with its little sister Fruit Mania SD has certainly bloomed for UNIS, a “best seller and a great earner” is what the UNIS UK distributor Ian Eason, Director of Instance Automatics thinks.
This video style pusher machine offers the player skill-based excitement with rapid coin shooting action and simple game play.... no more coins jamming up the mechanics! Aim and shoot coins at the rotating fruits to drain their health bars and the fruits will turn into treasure boxes and fall onto the platform. Each time coins/boxes drop into the “Winning Zone”, you win tickets, when coins/boxes drop into the Prize Wheel Trigger, it activates the Prize Wheel for a chance to win more tickets or receive special items.
Steven Tan, General Manager, is delighted with the way that Fruit Mania is performing worldwide “this great game seems to have captured the imagination everywhere, every aspect of the machine’s design and its performance is popular”.
