Tickets getting lots lighter

US-based ticket manufacturer National Ticket Company launched its new lightweight Litetix style of redemption tickets at the ATEI.
      As the firm had enjoyed a positive response to its wares at the Hong Kong show last year, it felt that exhibiting at the ATEI would also reap its rewards. Maureen Mulhall told InterGame: “The Litetix are much lighter in weight than normal redemption tickets. The benefits are that shipping  costs are vastly reduced and more tickets can go into each pack. ”

In addition to Litetix, National Ticket Company has its usual range of redemption tickets, wristbands and thermal tickets on display. “Our primary goals for ATEI are to see some of our international customers and to generate more business,” said Mulhall.

*  Coming from   ICE, the redemption games and novelt6ies specialist, is Striker Pro, a football game with a   39ins   monitor. The game will make its debut probably at the Chicago ASI event. Striker Pro was due to arrive in Europe at UK distributors Brent by the beginning of February. A live soccer game, the player has three different skill levels to compete as he kicks a football into the aperture at the front of the cabinet and follows its progress on the screen above. Bonus kicks and over ‘wall’ kicks are incorporated into the game, which is an update on the old Kick it games produced eight years ago by Interactive Light.

Rudolph, who has experience with companies like Global VR and Merit, said that he had left the company for personal reasons.
