Light & Wonder will unveil an impressive array of new-to-market products for the region during Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia May 30 to June 1 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
“Our Asian customers are excited to energize their casino floors and discover the tremendous value created for their players who want more modern, immersive game content with solutions and services to enhance the guest experience,” said Simon Johnson, Light & Wonder Senior Vice President and Managing Director, International Gaming. “Light & Wonder is taking the lead in performance and ship share across key Asian markets, an indicator that our ambition to be number one in the Asian market is well on its way to be actualized. To respond to this forward momentum and the demand for next-generation content, our team of award-winning game designers and studios have created a robust pipeline of next-level experiences, content, technology and systems that will reach across multiple platforms and markets.”
Light & Wonder is focused on creating the games the world wants to play and the underlying technologies to power those games across electronic gaming machines, table games, table utilities, and electronic table games (ETG) – all backed by ground-breaking innovations in systems, hardware and shufflers. As the global leader in game experiences, attendees will get up close and personal with expansive entertainment developed by the company’s best-in-class Creators.
At G2E Asia, Light & Wonder will showcase several game titles that are extensions of some of its most popular brand franchises including DRAGON UNLEASHED, DUŌ FÚ DUŌ CÁI GRAND, DANCING DRUMS EXPLOSION, and COIN COMBO.
One of Light & Wonder’s flagship progressive link series, DRAGON UNLEASHED unveils two titles at G2E Asia: RED FLEET and TREASURED HAPPINESS. Taking this series to the next level, these games showcase a new Respin and Free Games feature that enhance the potential for large wins. Together with the thrilling Dragon Reel feature, enhanced graphics and theatrical game presentation, these two games are a must-have for every gaming floor and are now available on the KASCADA DUAL SCREEN cabinet.
Light & Wonder will show off its impressive KASCADA DUAL SCREEN cabinet for the first time in the market. Complementing the KASCADA Portrait 43” cabinet, this best-in-class hardware is highlighted by a signature reflector edge-lighting design that gives it a striking presence on the gaming floor. Among the many eye-catching features, the cabinet comes with dual high-resolution 27” monitors with a floating 27” topper, allowing for dynamic game content.
With more wealth pots and more features, DUŌ FÚ DUŌ CÁI GRAND is the next-evolution jackpot and feature-rich game family to be released by Light & Wonder. INGOTCHA and DRAGONS, the two launch titles, offer a new spin on the familiar jackpot series with elevated features while maintaining player favorites from the original hits such as REEL WAYS and the ALL UP bet structure. INGOTCHA and DRAGONS are also available on the KASCADA DUAL SCREEN as DUŌ FÚ DUŌ CÁI GRAND VIP, the standalone progressive version of the original phenomenon.
Making its way to G2E Asia, COIN COMBO VIP, the standalone progressive version of one of the most successful global game brands, launches with the CARNIVAL COW and HYPER HORSE titles. Both include the Coin Combo feature, which awards upgraded features with better prizes and improved jackpots. Available on the KASCADA Portrait 43” cabinet, the machines are custom designed for the market with operator configurable bet options.
The stunningly designed Dragon Tail Baccarat joins the QUARTZ Standalone’s library as part of L&W’s ETG products. Players will love the free games, side bets, and interactive features displayed on the touchscreen, while operators will have access to game history, statistics, a configurable trend display and timer option, as well as a bet scheduler.
Light & Wonder also will feature one of its premier ETG experiences, RouletteX. Available on the Quartz Standalone and Hybrid platform, ROULETTEX offers players a supercharged roulette experience that keeps them coming back for more by allowing them to choose their own level of volatility and the chance to win up to 500 times the value of their wager on a single number.
The Company will also showcase 2022 Global Gaming Awards Asia’s “Casino Product of the Year,” the MDX card shuffler. With its award-winning shuffling technology and the capacity to shuffle up to 10 decks of cards at a time, players and operators alike will be able to play more, win more and do more.
Introducing the Blazing 7s Blackjack Progressive, this proven successful progressive jackpot provides an exciting bet option based on sevens. Players win if at least one of their first two cards is a seven and win even more if both of their first two cards are sevens. The payout increases again if the dealer’s card is also a seven.
On the Systems side of the business, the company is excited to debut a comprehensive, custom cross-platform loyalty program which will complement the current product family and enable a truly differentiated solution that easily integrates with existing platforms.
