ORLANDO, FL -- MC Global Games (Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia) exhibited its new self-cleaning attendant-free cotton candy vending machine at this year's IAAPA Expo here. The machine was on display in the Gold Standard Games booth.

Industry veteran Paul Jacobs, newly-appointed vice-president of business development for MC Global, reported that IAAPA showgoers of all ages enjoyed watching the machine's floss-making operation (with musical accompaniment), and were equally enthusiastic about the rich vanilla flavor of the cotton candy. "I was thrilled with the 100% positive response to our presentation of Cotton Candy World," he said.

Cotton Candy World, which features an eye-catching illuminated top display, automatically extrudes, spins and dispenses non-sticky, dry fluffy cotton candy in 70 seconds.It incorporates a vend door that remains locked during the floss-making process, then unlocks until the patron removes the finished product. The small-footprint cabinet is made of zinc-coated Australian steel with highly visible pink powdercoat finish and appealing graphics. The machine, manufactured in Australia, stands 89” high (with topper) and measures 30” wide x 28.5” deep.

The vender's three-year development cycle has yielded a new-generation cotton candy vending machine designed for low-maintenance unattended operation on site. Reinforcing its self-sufficient production and cleaning features is wireless data reporting, which suits it to street locations as well as family entertainment centers and other site-based recreational facilities.

Jacobs noted that the machine is currently operating in a number of Australian FECs, where it is producing a return on investment in less than 20 weeks. It's slated for delivery to the United States starting in March, 2020.
