Aruze Gaming to Showcase Top-Performing Cabinets and Games at SAGSE 2019

Las Vegas, Nevada (November 21, 2019) – PRNewswire – Aruze Gaming America, Inc. in partnership with Techno Gaming will exhibit an exceptional lineup of games and cabinets at booth #210 November 20-22 at SAGSE Buenos Aires 2019.

Michael Snyder, Vice President and General Manager Latin America and the Caribbean for Aruze said, “We are showcasing some of our cabinets and game titles that are performing incredibly well in the market. We have received excellent feedback on our Muso Triple-27 and Muso Curve-43 cabinets, along with the Fu Lai Cai Lai game series. We are very pleased with our valued channel partners in the LATAM market in 2019 and look forward to reaffirming the companies’ commitment to the LATAM market at SAGSE Buenos Aires.”

The Muso Triple-27, a dual-screen upright cabinet, has been one of the top indexing cabinets for eight consecutive months according to the North-American-based Eilers-Fantini Cabinet Performance Report.  Operators and players both win when the cabinet is paired with one of the top-indexing games such as the low denomination, video reel Fu Lai Cai Lai game series. Aruze reports this game style along with the bonus and Jackpot Chance features are resonating with players throughout the Latin American market.

“Fu Lai Cai Lai is quickly becoming a player favorite in the LATAM market” stated Aruze Director of Sales, Arleth Godinez. “We are excited to show Fu Cai Tong at SAGSE and we look forward to similar results with this new series on the Muso Curve 43. We are very proud of our lineup at SAGSE as well as the upcoming products in the LATAM market.”

Also on display will be the top-performing Muso Curve-43 Portrait Cabinet. Continuing much of the stunning design of the Muso Triple-27, this cabinet features a vertical 43-inch J-style curved LCD monitor that creates a breathtaking display. The Muso Curve-43 features an impressive portfolio, including the Legend City and Wheel of Prosperity family of games.

“I am excited about the positive response we have received regarding both the Muso Triple-27, Cube-X Video, and Vertical-40 product lines in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay.  Based on the performance of the latest single screen titles I see the opportunity to expand the Muso brand in 2020 with the introduction of Muso Curve-43,” said Carlos Mautone, founder and Sales Director of Techno Gaming, S.A.

Aruze Gaming Statement of Sudden Passing of Mr. Yoshiharu Kawaji

LAS VEGAS, November 19, 2019 – It is with profound sadness that the Board of Aruze Gaming shares the news that Mr. Yoshiharu Kawaji, Advisor and Senior Vice President of Global Services and Engineering, passed away suddenly on November 11, 2019.

Mr. Kazuo Okada, Founder of Aruze Gaming said “We are deeply saddened with Kawaji-san’s sudden death. Our deepest sympathies are extended to his family. He began working for me upon leaving high school. I will miss his friendship and comradery.”

Mr. Masumi Fujisawa, Chairman of Aruze Gaming, said, “It was a great privilege to know Kawaji-san and work beside him for many years. He was known and respected for his achievements among his colleagues and within the gaming industry. Our condolences are with his wife, family, friends, and employees. He will be missed by all.”

Mr. Kawaji’s 36 years of contributions extended not only to Aruze Gaming but also to Universal Technology, Ltd. and Universal Distributing of Nevada, Inc., where one of his many accomplishments included the development of one of the company’s most successful games ever, Magnificent 7’s. He began as a software engineer for Mr. Okada in 1983 immediately following high school, with roles including Chief Engineer Slot Department. When Universal Distributing of Nevada, Inc. opened in Nevada in 1991 he relocated from Japan and helped grow Universal during the booming gaming market of that time.

As a core part of the management team through the transition from Universal Distributing of Nevada to Aruze Gaming America, Mr. Kawaji interacted with nearly every facet of the business. He held numerous titles during this time, mainly interacting with Operations and Research and Development, eventually becoming Vice President of Integration and then Senior Vice President of Integration for Aruze Gaming in 2015.

His most recent role, as Advisor and Senior Vice President of Global Service and Engineering, highlighted his many years of experience not just within Aruze, but in the gaming industry. In this role, he oversaw Product Compliance, Product Management, Sales Promotion and local R&D. Although he had continued to advise and work with game development through all his roles, this most recent position allowed him to share his passion in an official capacity.

“It was my honor to work alongside Kawaji-san for the past several years,” said Rob Ziems, President of Aruze Gaming America. “Kawaji-san was a tremendous advisor, mentor, and friend. He was a behind-the-scenes kind of guy whose contributions were felt by many and they didn’t even realize it. The gaming industry has lost one of its best kept secrets. He will be missed by many and his absence will be felt amongst the Aruze family and friends. Our sincerest condolences are with his wife and family.”
