openbetTechnology provider of interactive gaming, OpenBet, is to showcase its latest suite of games created under its recent partnership with Matchroom Sport, World Snooker Limited and Professional Darts Corporation at the ICE Totally Gaming show in London on 24 January, it announced today.

In a company press release, OpenBet has proved it knows how to throw a celebratory party. It’s invited the industry to its stand at the ICE Totally Gaming event to meet Barry Hearn, Chairman of Matchroom Sport, and 15-time Darts World Champion Phil Taylor to mark the darts-themed titles launch.

On the day of the event, OpenBet will be also hosting a competition called “Challenge the Power”, which will allow visitors to the stand to challenge Phil Taylor to a game of darts under the beady eye of official PDC referee, George Noble. To qualify for the event, players need to play their hand at darts on OpenBet’s stand 5165 before 3pm on Tuesday. Then, once qualified, challenge Phil himself between 3pm and 5pm on the stand and win various prizes and sporting memorabilia.

Phil “The Power” Taylor, said: “OpenBet has done a fantastic job at taking our sport and producing a game that not only looks great but has strong appeal to the millions of customers that visit gaming websites. We are very proud of this agreement and I look forward to showcasing our games and defending my honour against everyone willing to challenge me at ICE.”

As one of the biggest aid and development agencies in the world, CARE International is renowned for helping people live in dignity and security with its bold aspirations towards overcoming poverty.

Co-founder, Lana Thompson, said: “The IGA’s always takes pride in raising awareness for worthy and charitable causes, some of which many gamers and industry insiders can relate to. We are confident that 2012’s glittering gala will be one to remember, as we capture every special moment whilst providing some unique networking opportunities across the online and land-based sectors. We should all take a moment to also remember those who are less fortunate than ourselves, donations to the charities are voluntary and guests can give as much or little as they wish.”

MEIMEI Conlux today launched its next-generation five-tube coin changer, which replaces its CCM5 model coin changer.

The company announced today the new Conlux MCM5 provides “increased tube capacity, additional float options, and enhancements in product durability and aesthetics.”

Americas director for Conlux, Tom Vogt, said: “Operators are looking to get more for less in these tough economic times and the MCM5 gives them a workhorse coin changer at an economical value. Conlux engineers took the heritage technology in the CCM5 and retooled it to satisfy operator needs for the next decade.”

The MCM5 automatically programs the cassette when it is snapped into place and provides simultaneous three-coin payout for faster transactions.
