Konami’s Fortune Cup Makes the Run to Market Release and North American Expansion
“Mechanical horse racing is a unique attraction and beloved casino classic for its shared social experience, fun creative ingenuity, and irresistible nostalgia. Konami’s Fortune Cup is bringing that dynamic back to the casino with top quality and advanced features for players to enjoy for years to come,” said Tom Jingoli, executive vice president & chief commercial officer at Konami Gaming, Inc. “Fortune Cup has proven entertainment value both in the legacy of the product category and Konami’s roots as an amusement company for nearly 50 years.”
As the casino division of one of the world’s top gaming entertainment companies, Konami Gaming, Inc. developed Fortune Cup based on proven technology from the organization’s video game and arcade divisions. Its core processing is powered by a proprietary cross-platform game engine and the machine’s hardware components have logged years of time-tested performance and durability under Konami’s amusement arcade division. Fortune Cup is a continuation of Konami’s specialty expertise in large multi-station products, designed for unique amusement and attraction.
“Fortune Cup is designed to provide new entertainment options to players and appeal to a broad audience, which we’ve seen affirmed in several ways by outcomes and results from launch locations,” said Jingoli. “It carries the most advanced technology in the history of this product category, without compromising the quintessential charm. The response from players has been strong and we’re looking forward to continued growth.”
Konami’s multi-station Fortune Cup mechanical horse racing game is available for placement in the U.S. and Canada through general release. Operators interested in further details are encouraged to contact their Konami account executive.
