The latest game releases for the NOVO LINE Interactive platform add two special Asian highlights to the broad NOVOMATIC game portfolio. Dancing Tiger and Dancing Lantern present colourful variations of the popular ALLPAY game play and exciting jackpot thrills.
The central character on both titles is the benevolent Asian Emperor. He is a cheery ol’fellow and acts as the keeper of a marvellous bowl full of gold coins and jackpot treasures.
Depending on the game theme, either three or more Lanterns or, respectively, Tigers trigger a Free Games feature that has players faced with a strategic choice: Opt for 15 free spins on a standard 5×3 reel layout or three free spins on a 5×6 reel layout? Or something in between? Maybe go for the Mystery Pick that will grant a random combination of free spin and reel layout options? Up to 15 free spins on the maximized 5×6 layout are possible.
Meanwhile, any Wild could also trigger the Pick & Win Jackpot Feature – any 3 matching symbols out of 15 award the respective fixed SILVER or GOLD jackpots or the MAJOR or GRAND Standalone Progressives.
This parade of Asian good luck charms is available for the complete range of NOVOMATIC upright curve cabinets and adds a Wild Jackpot attraction on the gaming floor.
These latest releases are part of the broad NOVOMATIC product suite for the Asian region comprising leading slot machines, market-focused games and multi-game editions, ETGs, casino management and media systems, Linked Progressives as well as sports betting solutions – all available via Ainsworth, acting as a sales and service unit for NOVOMATIC products in Asia-Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand.
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.
