Sega will launch its own Hoopla game at EAG International 2017
At this month’s EAG show in London, Sega will be launching its brand new redemption game based on the all-time classic carnival game Hoopla.
Sega’s Hoopla is designed with the family player in mind and fits into any skill wall.
During this timed game, players simply have to toss hoops onto pegs. Getting them on all seven pegs will activate a bonus round.
Players then have to react quickly to get a hoop on the moving bonus peg to win the big bonus ticket value.
“Just like any other skill wall game Hoopla has that intuitive gameplay that’s simple, fun and can be enjoyed over and over again,” Justin Burke, general manager at Sega, said.
“Best of all the wide playfield allows parents and kids or friends to team up creating a space for shared enjoyment which is one of, if not the, biggest attractions to family entertainment centres in the first place!”
Hoopla features a brightly lit eye-catching cabinet with colourful carnival theming.
The lowered playfield is specifically designed to encourage kids and adults to play and features a conveyor belt that constantly feeds the player more hoops.
“This is a long-term piece that will last in any FEC for 10 years or more,” Mr Burke said.
“The genre is timeless, and allows player across all generations to play together – it provides fun on the day and memories to keep.
“Operators have seen tremendous success by implementing a skill wall to their locations in the UK and across the world.
“Carnival games have been a core part of that, and Hoopla will be a fantastic addition to it.
“Onsite player reaction to Hoopla has been incredible. Players just love the game and keep coming back for more.”
EAG International Expo will take place from between January 17-19, 2017 at the ExCel London Exhibition Centre in London, UK.
Sega will be on stand 550, 550A, 550B and 550C.
