Slot games developer Wazdan celebrated its attendance at G2E Asia with the launch of another Asian-inspired, 9 Lions, which won ‘Hot Product’ Award from the show organisers. The award was granted based on the results of an online poll posed to operators, suppliers and players participating in the show. The slot machine maker is building a portfolio of new Asian-inspired products which were on-show at G2E Asia.
Set high in the mountains, the Asian-themed slot 9 Lions is “packed with new and exciting features” courtesy of Wazdan’s technology. The Wazdan Features include “the world’s first Volatility Levels TM, Energy Saving Mode, Double Screen Mode and Unique Gamble Feature” and is designed with a focus on Asian operators and their players.
Available across all devices and channels, 9 Lions is inspired by two important creatures in Chinese mythology: lions and tigers.
Head of Sales at Wazdan Andrzej Hyla said: “This new product line is a reflection of Wazdan’s ‘Passion for Games’ to meet the needs and tastes of different markets around the world more than ever before, providing region-specific solutions.”
Wazdan is exhibiting slots designed to appeal to Asian player preferences at its booth this year, including the ‘Double Tigers’ slot game with interactive features that allow players to spin a yin-yang wheel as a unique bonus round.
9 Lions has been “created with Asian aesthetics in mind” and with jackpot mechanics designed for Asian players. The slot has 9 separate reels forming a 3×3 grid combined with special features: Lion Bonus, Dragon Bonus, Blocking symbols and a very special Gamble game. All of these entertaining extra features offer intriguing possibilities of exciting wins.
“Wazdan is a global company creating winning game concepts for multiple regions,” said Hyla. “Our Asian promise is more excitement and more ways to win, and 9 Lions is an exemplar of that being a beautifully designed slot that includes more features for a richer player experience which has been acknowledged by the organisers through the Hot Product trophy we have been presented with. We are proud that our first Asian-themed game received international recognition and we’d like to thank all those who voted for us.”
