ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL -- Incredible Technologies said its Silver Strike Live trackball videogame will ship to distributors and operators on Feb. 15. To help kickoff the rollout, the factory is offering a 12-month, 0% financing program for the new online videogame.

Like IT's Golden Tee Live video golf game, the latest version in the popular bowling series supports online national contests for cash prizes. Gameplay and feature enhancements include classic 10-frame, 10- pin action on three different lanes; an all-new "spare challenge" mode, which offers players an additional way to win; customizable bowlers and balls; and HD graphics and sound. IT said Silver Strike Live offers patrons an entirely new videogame experience. See video here.

These new features and real-time play are being put to test in 50 select nationwide locations served by the Club Lucky operating companies. The Silver Strike Live test-run began on Dec. 15 (see story here). IT senior vice-president of sales Don Pesceone reported that the Club Lucky trial games achieved cashbox increases of up to 400% compared with earlier versions of the game.

Incredible Technologies has designed some of the best- known arcade videogames that mimic ten-pin bowling on a monitor corresponding to a trackball. Predating the original Silver Strike game of 2004 are Capcom Bowling (1988), Strata Bowling (1990) and World Class Bowling (1997).

Silver Strike 2007 Bowler's Club was the first to go online, through ITNet, and initiated weekly sweepstakes. Now that the live version can reward players on a per-game basis, IT is eliminating the sweepstakes program. However, special tournaments, like last summer's Bowlapalooza, can be added at anytime. And operators can create their own tournaments using FACTS, the videogame company's "free automated contest and tournament software."

More information on Silver Strike Live can be had by calling IT's sales hotline at (800) 262-0323, ext. 106.
