CARROLLTON, TX -- New from LAI Games is a prize capsule dispensing implementation of its considerable Mega Stacker. It is designed for locations without ticket redemption facilities.

The original Mega Stacker vends major prizes from integrated cabinets, and dispenses tickets as minor prizes. The new version replaces those tickets with prize capsules, which may be either 2" or 3" in size.

According to LAI, the first Mega Stacker has averaged earnings in excess of $3,000 a week with $2 to $3 vend prices. The capsule variant was developed in response to requests by operators who recognize that earning power, but have locations without redemption counters. With both versions now available, the Mega Stacker design is suitable for a wide range of entertainment venues.

Mega Stacker challenges players to stack geometric shapes imaged on a large video screen. The capsule version incorporates both major prize dispensers and a minor prize capsule vender in a single unit. Players who reach the minor prize level of the game win a prize capsule; those who attain the major prize level are invited to choose a prize visible in one of five lighted window compartments. Game settings, including prize payout, are programmable by the operator, so the game can be adjusted to maximize profits at many different price points.

More than 8 ft. wide and almost 10 ft. tall, Mega Stacker is a commanding presence and is said to be ideal for large gamerooms. Its huge LED playfield, dynamic cabinet lighting and "pulse-pounding" sound effects have proven effective in drawing crowds, the manufacturer reports.

LAI Games USA is a subsidiary of Leisure and Allied Industries, a leader in the interactive entertainment and game industry for more than half a century.
