Japan-based gaming equipment supplier Sega Sammy Creation Inc has installed one of its signature giant electronic gaming machines at MGM Cotai, a newly-opened Macau casino resort operated by MGM China Holdings Ltd.
The “Sicbo Bonus Jackpot Maximum Fortune” product is based on the casino table game sic bo – a traditional dice game popular with Asian casino customers – Sega Sammy Creation noted in a press release issued on Tuesday. The entire product stands 4 metres (13 feet) tall, and the maker claims it has an industry-first “dice flotation system”. Sega Sammy Creation additionally told GGRAsia by email that the single product had 24 player terminals.
According to the press release, the machine offers a side bet called “Maximum Fortune”.
Sega Sammy Creation has installed “Sicbo Bonus Jackpot” products in other Macau casino resorts including – in 2015 – at the Venetian Macao, a property operated by Sands China Ltd.
Sega Sammy Creation is a unit of Japanese entertainment conglomerate Sega Sammy Holdings Inc. The subsidiary, set up in June 2013, makes electronic casino gaming machines. The interests of the group as a whole also include the manufacture of pachinko and pachislot machines for the Japan market, the production of digital home entertainment products and toys for markets worldwide, and the development and operation of theme parks and gaming resorts.
Sega Sammy Holdings and South Korean casino operator Paradise Co Ltd formed a joint venture and developed Paradise City, a South Korean casino resort with a gaming facility that is open only to foreigners and which launched in 2017. The venue is close to Incheon International Airport, which serves the capital Seoul.
