Celebrating its 20th anniversary at ICE, Alfastreet unveiled its latest multi-player, a stunning mechanical Derby game


Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2014, Slovenia's Alfastreet continues to innovate with three new product developments unveiled at the ICE show in London. The first new product is a four-seat roulette designed specifically for smaller venues in which space is a premium, but where the function- ality of an Alfastreet multi-player benefits both players and operators. "The R4 is a very compact unit, offering the same features as our larger roulette multi-players, but here you're virtually sit- ting on the wheel," explained Alfastreet's Albert Radman of the ultra-compact R4. "We have installed a small number of R4's prior to the ICE. Though this is a very new and very compact prod- uct, it's created a lot of noise at the show already."


In addition to the R4, Alfastreet unveiled its latest terminal, the WIKY, a new terminal with a crystal- clear 32ins. screen that occupies the same footprint as the current SL model. "It's the screen that makes all the difference," said Mr. Radman of this new design. "It's size and clarity means that operators have the option to display simultaneous games (up to eight games at the same time) on the big screen. No other multi-player on the market is as comfort- able to play at the new WIKY."


Finally, the all new and highly anticipated mechan- ical Derby, an Alfastreet horse racing machine, that will finally be a worthy successor to the vintage games still highly prized by players after more than 20 years. Derby isn't 100 per cent complete, but was shown fully operational at the ICE show with just a few additional tweaks required before it’s

ready for sale. "The machine is packed with the lat- est technology, is made out of the best materials and keeps the same user friendly layout, flawless operation and the familiar Alfastreet playability that the world's players embrace," stated Mr. Radman of the company's latest multi-player. "We have been asked by so many customers for this game that we invested time and energy into creat- ing a mechanical horse-racing game with the fea- tures and functionality of an Alfastreet product. It's almost ready to be deployed internationally and we already have orders ready to go."


After 20 years at the top of its game, 2014 looks to be the best year yet for the innovative Slovenian games developer.
