TECH TALK Aristocrat unveiled its new high-volatility, high-stakes slot machine “Fa Fa Long” at G2E Asia in 2018. Aristocrat’s High Limit Area featured one of the company’s newest releases, “Fa Fa Long” – a standalone game for players who enjoy a higher-volatility gaming experience. “Fa Fa Long” is based on Aristocrat’s repeat-win math model. Its simple mechanics are paired with intuitive line displays, which offer players a low-line math model. While popular in numerous markets around the world, this style of game is brand new to Asia with the company claiming it has the potential to redefine high-limit slots. “‘Fa Fa Long’ is seeking to provide players with something a little different,” explains Aristocrat Marketing Manager – APAC, Nick Callaway. “The game is a high-denomination, eight-line game, with such low lineage a rarity in Asia Pacific. It offers a suite of high- end denominations and configurations ideal for VIP room placement. “With bespoke Asian artwork coupled with proven math, ‘Fa Fa Long’ is derived from one of ANZ’s most popular high denomination games, ‘Big Red’. “We’re confident that the repeat-win mechanic will entertain players across the region, with its balance of simple mechanics and strong pay table, complete with a top prize of up to 1,000 credits.” Aristocrat’s “Fa Fa Long” slot offers denominations up to HK$1,000 (US$127).
