Konami’s Fortune Cup Debuts in Macau

Asia Pioneer Entertainment Holdings Ltd. (the APE group), the distributor for supplier Konami Australia Pty. Ltd. in Macau, announced that Fortune Cup, Konami’s multi-station horse race game, has debuted in two “prominent” Macau casinos.

The announcement did not specify the number of units of Fortune Cup that are being installed in the city’s casinos, nor the names of the venues in which the games are being installed.

The arcade-style game, a miniature horse track combining electro-mechanical and digital technologies, features 12 betting terminals around a 274-centimeter-wide mechanical track with eight horses that travel freely and independently across the course. The horses’ actions are mirrored by real-time digital animation on connected LCD screens in a sports broadcast format in Cantonese, and players place their bets through touch-screen stations with race stats, horse odds, and comprehensive bet options for win, place and quinella.
