Taiwan-based casino gaming equipment supplier Jumbo Technology Co Ltd has formed a non-exclusive partnership with fellow supplier Scientific Games Corp that enables the latter to “purchase and connect” Jumbo’s automated sic-bo dice shakers (example pictured) to Scientific Games’ electronic table system (ETG) terminal, Quartz Hybrid, in all regions except Macau.
The partnership was announced by Jumbo in a Monday statement. It also noted that Scientific Games had recently purchased its first unit of Jumbo’s automated sic-bo dice shaker in order to link it to a total of 45 Quartz Hybrid terminals at South Korea’s Seven Luck Casino.
Scientific Games said last week that the product Quartz Hybrid had been deployed at the Seven Luck Casino at the Millennium Hilton in Gangnam, Seoul, South Korea. The 45 terminals installed feature several table games popular amongst Asian players, namely baccarat, roulette and sic-bo, Scientific Games said at the time.
“We are honoured to partner with Scientific Games and supply our automated sic-bo dice shakers to their ETG stadiums,” said Allen Hsu, Jumbo’s associate vice president of business development, in prepared comments in Monday’s release.
“It’s great to find synergies with a similar company [offering] exceptional gaming products. At Jumbo, we are always open to partnership opportunities around the world,” Mr Hsu added.
Jumbo’s automated sic-bo shaker is “based on the traditional sic bo concept”, the Taiwanese firm stated, referring to the fact it allows players to place bets even after the dice have been shaken inside a gold-coloured, dome-shaped container. This automated sic-bo shaker product is said to have patents issued in Macau, Singapore and United States.
In its Monday statement, Jumbo also noted that prior to its new partnership with Scientific Games, its dice shaker had been developed for its own multi-game ETG stadiums.
