PowerPutt Live from Incredible Technologies
January 24, 2012 – PowerPutt Live is the newest game from Incredible Technologies.
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 courses to explore.
“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.”
Power Putt Live now offers the following courses: Big Foot Bend, King Putt’s Tomb, Roadside 66, Dusty Trail, Skull Island and Freaky Tiki.
According to co-creator Ralph Melgosa, PowerPutt Live is more than just an update; it’s an entirely new game.
“Jim and I pulled out all the stops with PowerPutt Live,” he said. “Besides getting to play six courses, players can track their stats, customize their on-screen golfer, check their world ranking and compete for cash in a daily tournament with an all-new format. PowerPutt Live is unlike any other game in the field.”
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.
“The key is getting in early and taking advantage of being the first on the block with a hot, new game,” said Don Pesceone, senior vice-president of sales. “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.”
PowerPutt Live will be on display at the Amusement Expo March 14 through 16 in Las Vegas and is scheduled to ship in March.
