Local electronic gaming equipment supplier Asia Pioneer Entertainment Holdings Limited announced that it has installed its third Fortune Cup horse racing Multi-Terminal Gaming Machine in Macau, with a terminal installed at MGM Cotai.
The other two gaming terminals were previously installed in Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace.
The gaming machine integrates mechanical field racecourse with real-time digital video animation, with a large LCD screen transmitting sports broadcasts in real-time.
The gaming machine was developed by Konami Australia Pty Ltd, and has a central race track for eight horses, which can move freely and independently across the course.
Players can then place bets and view horse odds, race statistics and comprehensive bet options for win, place and quinella.
‘For those regular players of electronic games, they find the racing game extraordinary. They can experience excitement as if being on the real racecourse. More importantly, it is a racing game that combines sports elements that they can cheer on their stallion to final victory instead of solely pressing the bet button to wait for the result”, APE’s Chief Executive Officer Herman Ng, indicated in the company announcement.
