Slot machine maker WMS Gaming Inc, a Scientific Games Corp company, highlighted a portfolio of new Asian-inspired products at the recent Global Gaming Expo 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
WMS featured content catering to Asian player preferences at its booth this year, including ‘Winning Fortune Progressive’ slot games, also known as ‘Yi Lu Fa’ within the Macau market. The product offers five levels of progressive play, an interactive feature that allows players to place the top progressive symbol on the wheel before spinning, and three base themes; ‘Dragon’s Legend’; ‘Wishing You Fortune’; and ‘Far East Fortunes Deluxe’. Each has unique bonus rounds.
Also on display was the new premium local area progressive series ‘Sons of the Dragon’, which WMS says was “created with Asian aesthetics in mind” and with jackpot mechanics designed for Asian players.
Sebastian Salat, president WMS International, said in a statement sent to GGRAsia: “This new product line is a reflection of the combined efforts of WMS and Scientific Games to meet the needs and tastes of different markets around the world more than ever before, providing region-specific solutions from a truly global company.”
