Reflecting the growing demand for horse racing multi-terminal gaming machines (MTGM), Konami’s Fortune Cup distributed by Asia Pioneer Entertainment (APE), was installed in five Macau casinos last year.
APE recently made a Fortune Cup installation as a part of the new ETG zone at Studio City Macau. The company reports that the machine is also scheduled to be deployed at another Cotai Strip IR.
Created by the Konami Corporation, Fortune Cup comprises a central 274cm-wide race track for eight horses which move freely and independently across the course.
The MTGM features 12 high-definition touchscreen terminals for players to place bets and view horse odds, race statistics and comprehensive bet options including win, place and quinella.
Integrated the mechanical field racecourse with real-time digital video animation, a large LCD screen to offer spectators sports broadcasts.
Cantonese voice-overs for these broadcasts are jointly produced by electronic gaming equipment supplier APE and renowned Hong Kong horse racing commentator Samuel Hung.
