Scientific Games Partners with Jumbo Technology

Scientific Games and Jumbo Technology have announced a non-exclusive partnership which enables SG to purchase and connect Jumbo’s automated sic bo dice shakers to SG Quartz ETG terminals in all regions except Macau.

Unlike other automated dice shakers, Jumbo’s sic bo dice shaker is uniquely designed and based on the traditional sic bo concept, in which players place bets after the dice have been shaken in an enclosed golden dome container.

Jumbo, which holds the patent rights for this automated game flow in Macau, Singapore and the United States, originally developed the dice shaker exclusively for its own multi-game ETG stadiums, which include games like Long Dragon Baccarat, roulette and sic bo. These ETGs feature Jumbo’s signature Random Pay feature, which is also patented in multiple jurisdictions around the world.

By utilizing Jumbo’s technology, Scientific Games can now offer additional live streamed, automated sic bo games to its players.

In its announcement, Jumbo said that SG recently purchased its first unit of Jumbo’s dice shaker to connect with 45 Quartz terminals at Korea’s Seven Luck Casino.
