Aristocrat is gearing up for the release of its latest Asian-focused slots family, Ba Bao Huang Long.
After a tour-de-force debut at this year’s G2E Asia, Ba Bao Huang Long is set to make waves in the Asia-Pacific region. The family was a stand-out amongst other offerings at the recent show and is soon to be approved across the region.
Ba Bao Huang Long is based on the legend “Koi jumps over the Dragon Gate”.
The story tells of a tenacious Koi who swims upstream to reach the Dragon’s Gate at the top of a waterfall cascading from a legendary mountain. Many Koi try, but few are capable of beating the current. The brave Koi makes the final leap over the waterfall and is transformed into a powerful dragon symbolising the reward of good fortune through perseverance.
Ba Bao Huang Long was created as the spiritual successor to the phenomenal Good Fortune family. It features instant win Cash On Reels and hallmarks of Aristocrat’s popular Asian mechanics through the evolution of Choose Your Volatility and Pick’Em features.
The game features a metamorphic Golden Dragon which grows incrementally with every wild landed. As a central element to the top box, this strong game personality allows players to compare game states across the floor and “window shop” for their preferred machine. The dragon grows until the Jackpot feature is triggered, prompting players to select from a pond of moving koi or turtles to match three gold coins and win jackpots. In addition, players can win an additional Jackpot feature while picking their lucky Koi or turtle, creating more excitement.
The game takes feedback from the Macau and Philippines market, where multiple same start-up Mystery Jackpots are popular, and improves on Good Fortune’s Gold SAP prize. Ba Bao Huang Long features two same start-up SAP prizes on individual EGMs. As SAPs are struck, the standalone progressives will “leap frog” over each other to ensure that players always have jackpots available to drive excitement.
Clear, concise bet mechanics are threaded throughout the game and elegantly animated. Wagering higher allows players to qualify for Jackpots and bonus reels to improve their base game, free game and Jackpot experience. At the heart of the game is the Ba Bao Bonus. Players can instantly win Cash-on-Reels prizes and SAP prizes when landing with one or more Ba Bao Bonus symbols.
With two games in the family on launch, “Ba Bao Huang Long – Emperor” and “Ba Bao Huang Long – Ingot”, approvals are expected for the region shortly. The game can be deployed with statement Jackpot profiles available, as well as market standard progressive levels. Also available are a number of strong signage solutions to increase the presence on a venue’s floor.
