Seminole Gaming Invites Players to Hit It Big With Fa Fa Fa Fortune King™ Wide Area Progressive Slots; Popular Asia Imports Are First WAP Slots to be Linked Among Seminole Casinos
Games Now Available for Play at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (November 25, 2013) – The good luck of the Orient comes to Florida. Seminole Gaming invites Florida players to hit it big with 42 new Fa Fa Fa Fortune King™ Wide Area Progressive (WAP) slots. The popular Asia imports will be the first Wide Area Progressive slots linked among Seminole properties including Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa as well as Seminole Casinos in Brighton, Coconut Creek, Hollywood and Immokalee. Eight Fa Fa Fa Fortune King slot machines are now ready for play at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood.
Fa Fa Fa (Chinese for Fortune, Fortune, Fortune) Fortune King is an Asian-themed Multi-site Progressive (MSP) Hyperlink on the new and innovative GEN7 platform from Aristocrat. Fa Fa Fa Fortune King's titles - 5 Dragons, 50 Dragons and Choy Sun Da - offer players high-resolution graphics and sound combined with interactive touch-screen features. In the Jackpot mode, the second screen feature is won at random during any bought game. Players collect three of the same symbol to win the corresponding progressive jackpot – Grand, Major, Minor and Mini. The Grand Jackpot is available when the Hyperlink jackpot feature is triggered on max bet only. Ultimately, players have a chance of winning a progressive jackpot starting at $150,000 with just a $1.50 bet.
"Fa Fa Fa is the undisputed king of slot gaming across Asia. The product has seen tremendous popularity across all Asian markets including Macau, Singapore, Philippines, Cambodia and Vietnam. The game is themed around the Chinese god of wealth and prosperity (Choy Sun Doa) and combines Aristocrats industry renowned base game mathematics with the opportunity to win four lucrative progressive jackpot levels," said Matt Wilson, vice president of marketing for Aristocrat America's. "We are incredibly excited to bring this product to the Seminole Casinos and believe their players will thoroughly enjoy the experience the unique game delivers."
"We wanted to bring something new to the Florida gaming market," said Kevin Sweet, vice president of Slot Performance for Seminole Gaming. "Fa Fa Fa Fortune King has been a success in Asia for years because of both the excitement of the base games and the frequency that the top progressive prize is awarded."
Currently, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood games that offer life-changing jackpots such as Wheel of Fortune and Michael Jackson King of Pop slots run on a nationwide network of machines. Casinos from California to Florida are all linked together to drive-up the jackpot amount, however, the odds of a local casino winner are small.
"With this new Seminole Gaming Wide Area Progressive link, we are guaranteeing that this grand jackpot will be won by our loyal players in the state of Florida," added Sweet. "If the Seminole Casinos Wide Area Progressive games are well-received here, we hope to be awarding the grand prize several times a year. Not many other casinos in the country can offer that kind of prize for just a $1.50 bet. This is just another example of how we're taking it to the next level for guests."
