Win Systems, a leading technology supplier for the gaming and entertainment industry, has launched a new electronic roulette game under its Gold Club brand, Chinese roulette.

The innovative product differs significantly to the traditional Western version. The bet table features the usual 36 numbers plus zero, but is laid out as a figure of eight, referencing Chinese culture’s mystical relationship with the number.

Players will also be able to bet on alternative sets of numbers based on the Chinese zodiac, including the tiger, snake and dragon amongst others, as well as wider sets based on the four basic elements of wood, fire, metal and water.

Another unique feature for Chinese roulette is the Zero 50/50 protection game. This sees a card dealt when the ball lands on zero, with players recovering their bets if the value is higher than an eight and losing if lower.

All casino estates with Gold Club roulette integrated will be able to offer players the choice between Chinese roulette and the traditional version on a single machine, with both linked to the same live table.

Eric Benchimol, CEO of Win Systems, said, “Win Systems continues to drive innovation in the electronic roulette space and Chinese roulette is the latest addition to our quality range.

“Featuring a brand-new bet table, new symbols and the regionally-tailored figure of eight layout, all players, but particularly Asian ones, will enjoy the fresh approach to the established game.

“We’ve boosted our Gold Club range significantly in recent weeks with the launch of Ventura and Knockout, and this latest addition will confirm our position as the leading electronic roulette supplier to global operators.”

Win Systems will launch the latest addition to its electronic roulette range at ICE Totally Gaming 2018. The launch will be accompanied by Chinese lion dances and Chinese calligraphers who will be on the stand to write bespoke messages for visitors.
