Third Konami Fortune Cup Live in Macau

MGM Cotai in Macau has installed that market’s third Fortune Cup, the arcade-style electronic and electro-mechanical horse race game from Konami Gaming.

Konami distributor Asia Pioneer Entertainment (APE) announced that it has completed installation of the Fortune Cup 10-player racing game at MGM Cotai. The game was already live at Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace.

Fortune Cup is a modern version of the style of game initiated in the legendary 1980s Sigma Derby, in that it uses miniature horses around an arcade-style track. Fortune Cup adds electronics into the mix, simulating the race in high-definition animation on a big screen. The game offers bet options of win, place and quinella.

APE’s press release quoted Hideo Goto, international sales manager for Konami Australia, in noting that the company plans “several more installations” before the end of the year.
