PowerPutt LIVE to Host New Daily TournamentJanuary 6, 2012 By: Nightclub & Bar
PowerPutt LIVE is the newest hit game from Incredible Technologies.
When the original PowerPutt debuted from Incredible Technologies in the fall of 2008, players loved the life-like graphics and game play. The original PowerPutt was designed as a stand-alone, offline game with three courses. PowerPutt LIVE includes the three original courses plus three brand-new layouts for a total of six.
“We’ve tweaked all the tee and pin positions on the original courses giving them a new look and feel, and the new courses are simply incredible,” said Jim Zielinski, award-winning designer and co-creator of PowerPutt LIVE. “When you add in all of the online functionality that players, locations and operators demand from on-premise games today, the end result is a unique, compelling entertainment experience that really gives operators their money’s worth.”
The new daily tournament format is designed to encourage repeat play. Players can compete as many times as they’d like — since a bad game doesn’t hurt their chances of winning — and there is a new tournament every day. The new daily tournament also features an escalating cash purse, starting with a minimum of $200. The top 50 players will win, and the first-place prize begins at $50. As more games go online and tournament entries increase, the tournament prize purse will increase as well.
Don Pesceone, senior VP of sales, said that once the word spreads among players that there’s a new game in town with a tournament with big cash prizes, interest in PowerPutt LIVE will skyrocket.
“The key is getting in early and taking advantage of being the first on the block with a hot, new game,” he said. “But it doesn’t begin and end with the tournament. PowerPutt LIVE also features FACTS LIVE and AdWiz LIVE. Operators can run their own local contests and promotions using FACTS LIVE, and with AdWiz LIVE they can download full-color ads and messages directly to their games. No more manual installation required.”
Pesceone went on to say that the combination of annual PowerPutt LIVE and Golden Tee LIVE updates will make it easy for operators to forecast cash flows all year long.
“Operators can count on a PowerPutt LIVE new courses update every spring. Coupled with a Golden Tee update in the fall, operators who take advantage of our no-money-down, 0% interest, monthly payment plans can avoid the rollercoaster cash-flow rides so common in our industry.”
PowerPutt LIVE will be on display at the Amusement Expo and is scheduled to ship in March.
