Japan-based gaming equipment supplier Sega Sammy Creation Inc says its Sic Bo Bonus Jackpot product – which it described as the first gaming machine developed by the company – has been installed at the Studio City gaming resort in Macau, a property 60-percent owned by Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd.
This electronic table game version of a traditional dice game that is popular with Asian casino customers, stands – when taking into account its overhead embellishments – more than 4 metres (13 feet) tall.
The maker said it offers an industry-first “Dice Flotation System”, and is decorated with dragon motifs and colourful LED lights.
Sega Sammy Creation added that the product’s “Table View” button allows a player to view the other players’ bets, and simulates the feel of a traditional live-dealer sic bo table. The product also has a progressive jackpot, which the maker says “brings the excitement of a progressive jackpot win without the need for side bets”.
The company had installed its first Sic Bo Bonus Jackpot cabinet in the Macau market – with a total of 30 playing stations – in 2015 at the Venetian Macao, a property operated by Sands China Ltd.
Sega Sammy Creation was established in June 2013, as part of the Sega Sammy Group. The group’s interests 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 resorts.
The group is developing a foreigner-only casino resort – called Paradise City – at Incheon, South Korea, in partnership with local casino operator Paradise Co Ltd. The first phase is due to open in April 2017, and Paradise Co has started recruiting staff, according to recent notes by investment analysts.
