Building on the concept that “Content is King,” Merit Entertainment introduced its 2009 Software at the recent AMOA show in Las Vegas. Featuring 14 brand new, innovative titles and fresh, updated content for nearly a dozen classic Megatouch games, this software release continues the long Merit tradition of providing players with exactly what they want to play. With its high-earning 2009 Software, available on both Force and Ion systems, Merit has again delivered on its customer promise to lead the industry and ensure operators maximum earnings and long-term product value. When developing this release, Merit pushed the limits of its creative and technical abilities to fashion an ambitious and addicting slate of games.
Avalanche Jack takes players on a mountaintop blackjack adventure while Lucky 11’s transports them to a hip, Las Vegas casino. My Ex captures the ups and downs of modern dating, while Super Cell Chaos asks players to find the antidote and save the day. Triple Crown Boxing pits players against the best prizefighters in the world while Deflection drops them into the middle of a heated battle on the soccer pitch. As the exclusive licensee of Skee-Ball®, Merit has captured the sound and feel of the classic game. Trivia Whiz 2 offers trivia fanatics new, focused categories such as 80’s Trivia, Sitcoms and Celebrities while the boys from Australia’s Thunder From Down Under provide the perfect complement to Merit’s exclusive Penthouse erotic content in brand new versions of Photo Hunt and Foxy Boxxi.
During the months of Beta testing this software, six of the new games ranked among the top twenty-five most played, while two have held steady in the top five. Based on feedback from hundreds of players, the final release contains many improvements over the Beta versions. Lucky 11’s, which has been available to connected operators as a Sneak Peek for several months, continues to hold its position in the top five from week to week. All of these new games and updated content have led to a substantial earnings boost for operators. Megatouch games featuring the 2009 software reported a 39% increase in earnings over what those same machines were making in the months before the release. During that same period, earnings across nonupdated machines remained steady. “Our dedication to the operator is clearly shown by our consistent stream of new and high-earning software releases,“ stated Bob Mills, Merit’s Vice President of North American Sales. “We are proud to continue to support operators with new software for their hardware purchased as far back as 2000, offering the most comprehensive value to purchasers of our products. “Content is King,” Mills continued. “We believe it and so do operators and players. Merit’s extensive Beta test on hundreds of machines all across the country shows that this release is bulletproof. Operators are always the top priority. Designing quality games that make them money year after year and extend the return on investment in their hardware is our mission.”
