WIDE APPEAL: Andamiro USA's Pro Basketball has proven popular in taverns and other street locations, in which operators appreciate the ease of disabling the redemption features. A new Fun Version optimized for route operations is slated to roll out in October.

GARDENA, CA -- Andamiro USA has announced the development of a "Fun Version" of its popular Basketball Pro, which rolled out early this year. It is slated for limited availability in mid-October.

The company reports that operators have found Basketball Pro to be not only a prime attraction in family entertainment centers, but also a good fit for bars and other street stops. The new Fun Version is optimized for a non-redemption clientele of this kind.

The dedicated Fun Version is a single-door implementation that can support one bill validator. The redemption signage of the original has been removed, and "how to play" decals are placed where the ticket readouts are situated on the redemption version. This simple repackaging is described as street-friendly, and is said to be ideal for non-redemption locations requiring bank­note and coin acceptance.

"Add a cashless reader option to accept credit cards and mobile payments," Andamiro USA suggested. "Cashless payment on amusement machines is becoming more common, and boosts earnings."

Basketball Pro features a novel rubber-ball user interface. The game challenges player to shoot mini balls on the playfield at backboards that move up and down; the mini balls' propulsion is controlled pneumatically as the player pounds on one of two rubber balls. Three points are scored for every basket until the final 10 seconds, when a basket is worth six points.

The game provides two player stations that offer side-by-side competition or single play. it measures 32" W. x 38" D. x 89" H., or 79" without the eye-catching billboard.

Information on Basketball Pro may be had by emailing, or by calling Nick Montano at (646) 325-6477 or Drew Maniscalco at (310) 525-1815.
