Sega Sammy Creation has announced the installation of its first slot titles in Macau, and says it is optimistic about the future of its slot games in the Asian market.
The first two games to hit the casino floors will be a mahjong-themed “Fortune Tiles of Dragon” and a 243-way title “Moonlight Treasure”. Both are installed on the Genesis Star upright cabinet.
Masahiro Kurosaki, head of Asia sales noted that Fortune Tiles of Dragon drew large interest at G2E Asia in May this year, and “confirms our belief that innovative games will drive new player engagement and provide new content to retain regular players as well.”
Sega Sammy says it expects to release more slot titles across various markets over the coming months.
Consolidation of the bases and advancement in adversity was the thrust of Macau Chief Executive’s policy address for 2021, though it gave little away when it came to the current pillar of the economy - the gaming industry.
Gaming suppliers, like all areas of the industry, have felt the pinch from the Covid-19 crisis, though their growing digital businesses have proved a bright spot and helped offset the impact of the crisis.
While nowhere in the world has escaped the economic fallout from the Covid-19 crisis, Macau has been hit harder than most, with forecasts for gross domestic product to shrink more than 50 percent this year.
