Scientific Games, Carnival Cow, Macau's 2.0 standards

Scientific Games said its Carnival Cow game is the first to meet Macau’s new regulatory standards, which were published in September last year by the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ).

Scientific Games said it fast-tracked development of Version 2.0 compliant games to give operators the ability to receive popular games for their casino floors.

All gaming machines in Macau will need to comply with the Electronic Gaming Machine Technical Standards, Version 2.0. Casinos have until 2024 to swap out old machines that aren’t compliant with the rules.

“We moved quickly so our customers are able to purchase games now that are compliant with the new regulatory requirements that will be completely implemented by the end of 2024,” said Ken Jolly, vice president and managing director for Asia.

Scientific Games will also seek approval for back catalogue player favourites the Duo Fu Duo Cai and Jin Ji Bao Xi family of games in Q2 of 2022 for the installed Dualos and Dualos X cabinets in Macau.
