ORLANDO -- Sega will showcase a wide lineup of games at IAAPA, from Nov. 14 to 17 at the Orange County Convention Center, in Orlando, FL.

Sega's first big tournament is on the new skill wall game Hoopla. To participate in this tournament, players have to simply toss the hoops on all seven hooks and complete the bonus round with the highest score. Hoopla features a brightly lit, colorful, carnival-themed cabinet. The conveyor belt constantly feeds more hoops to the player while the lowered, wide playfield encourages players young and old to get in on the action. The first place winner of the Hoopla tournament will win a Tokio technology bundle pack and will be announced at 4 p.m. on Nov. 16.

Daytona Championship USA has a built-in tournament feature that Sega will showcase. Players can participate in the in-game Daytona Tournament to get their name on the leaderboard with the quickest time. The winner who holds the top spot at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16 will walk away with a limited-edition Daytona 500 framed print. Operators are also encouraged to attend the free seminars on the Daytona Party mode at 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Tuesday to Thursday, and 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Friday.

Shoot some hoops and get the highest score. That's the simple instruction on Sega's final tournament on Sonic Sports Basketball. With up to four stages to complete, including one with a randomly moving hoop, each stage gets tougher to progress to the next one. Sega's popular basketball game now comes with new reactive lighting effects that make scoring even more gratifying.

Players who can't make the top spot in the three tournaments still a chance to win a prize. Every guest who leaves a business card at the booth reception desk will be entered into a competition for a chance to win an Apple iPad.

Sega will exhibit in booths 1506 and 1606.
