Gaming manufacturer Novomatic has installed its first linked jackpot progressives in Cambodia, working with local distributor Indo Pacific Gaming (IPG).
The slot series, named Enchanted Fortunes Linked Jackpot, has been installed in multiple locations in the country and is introduced on the latest Panthera Curve 1.43 cabinet that features compelling graphics on a 43” curve screen.
The games feature titles from the Fortunes series such as Asian Fortunes, Voodoo Fortunes, as well as leading games Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes and Goddess Rising.
Loren Stout, VP of Operations and Sales IPG, said: “Our customers and partners are very pleased with the new Novomatic installations thus far. Comments are positive, and we are continually impressed with the performance of the machines. We look forward to future additional placements and working with our partners to provide the very best machines and equipment we can fit to each specific market.”
Sonya Nikolova, VP Sales Asia & Africa, added: “The new game concepts and latest range of slot machines introduced to the markets in South-East Asia have been designed with the aim to respond to customer demand, but also to prove the strategic approach of Novomatic to strengthen the brand recognition and customer satisfaction in the region. The efforts of our partners in supporting our mission are highly appreciated.”
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.
