Independent operators Bob Rudd and Essex Leisure have placed significant orders with Bell-Fruit Games for its iPub3 digital compendium.


The machines will be rolled out over the next 12 months for both companies and include full content updates with a 10 or 26 game menu available and content updates included in the deal for four years.

The iPub3 is a significant upgrade on the iPub2, featuring a bespoke Quixant PC, which speeds up loading time, improves the gameplay experience and significantly increases machine uptime with much improved reliability. The iPub3 also comes fitted with the NV200 note acceptor that minimises note jams and errors. The cabinets also feature increased security and fraud prevention features. Both of these significant hardware upgrades utilise some of the best technology available, which is designed to ensure this future game release will work seamlessly.

“We have had the iPub3 installed for a few weeks on site and we have seen no note jams at all during that time,” says Greg Wood, operations director at Essex Leisure. “The NV200 will decrease service calls and downtime significantly.”

“This agreement with Bell-Fruit for the iPub3 means that Essex Leisure and Bob Rudd are now the first operators to be able to supply all the leading digital products on the market, including iPub, GamePro and King of Games,” added Nick Rudd, managing director of Bob Rudd. “This means we can vary the digital machine mix in high-density sites and accurately gauge performance between them. Our customers can be sure that when it comes to digital – as with all of our other products – we will only supply best of breed.”
