Gaming equipment supplier Scientific Games Corp says it has launched the Chinese-themed “Jin Ji Bao Xi” (pictured) slot machine product in so-called “Class III” – i.e., commercial casino – markets in North America.
“Since Jin Ji Bao Xi was released in Asia and Australia, it has already proven to be a smash hit, attaining impressive sales and performance numbers,” said Bob Parente, senior vice president and chief revenue officer of Scientific Games, in a prepared statement.
The group is also launching the New Wave XL cabinet in Class III Markets, it said.
Jin Ji Bao Xi was launched with the theme Rising Fortunes, and is available in the TwinStar J43 cabinet or the TwinStar Wave XL, said the gaming equipment manufacturer.
GGRAsia reported last March that Jin Ji Bao Xi had its global debut in the Macau market. Jin Ji Bao Xi translates from pinyin Chinese approximately as “Gold to Deliver Happiness”.
Ken Jolly, Scientific Games’ vice president and managing director of Asia, told GGRAsia during the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia 2018 casino trade show held in Macau last May that Jin Ji Bao Xi had been deployed in several Asia-Pacific markets including the Philippines, Cambodia and Vietnam.
It is a follow-on from the “Da Fu Da Gui” slot product – translation “Getting Rich” – the firm says is still popular in Asia five years on from its launch.
