Here at OCS, we like to share updates on betting companies you may or may not
have heard of, but who nonetheless have achieved a considerable amount of
success in the terrestrial and/or online gambling fields. So without
further delay, here's the scoop on an Asia-based (Singapore, Malaysia and
Vietnam) gaming technology company called Weike Gaming, whom we recently noticed
at the 2008 Asia G2E.
I'm sure if I had lived in Asia, Weike would be a more familiar name with me. In
many ways, they are the IGT of the Eastern Hemisphere. Weike is Malaysia's only
licensed betting machine manufacturer, and is making a concerted effort to
become all of Asia's top machine manufacturer. Looking at the way things are
presently going for the company, not to mention the liberalization of the Asian
gaming sector, this could be a not-too-distant reality.
Committed to new innovation and technology solely on the basis of improving
their product line, Weike is not the kind of company you will find taking a
break or watching the betting industry grow from the sidelines. Proactive to say
the least, the products coming out of Weike, including electronic betting
tables, gaming systems (progressive jackpot networks) and slots truly reflect
this company's positive attitude.
Strictly catering to the Asian betting sector, Weike has a unique selection of
Asian-themed slot games boasting state-of-the-art animations. Some titles
include "Uniquely Singapore", "Truly Malaysia", "Discovering Macau", "Oriental
Fantasy", "Yokoso Japan" and "King of Prosperity". Oh, and we can't forget
"Vegas Temptation". Perhaps maybe Vegas isn't so much a temptation these days,
considering the expanding Macau casino Mecca.
Another specialty innovation at Weike are their multi-player electronic casino
betting tables. Oh, and did I mention they are cashless and do not require a
live dealer to man them? Using 3D virtual chips and cards, yet still providing
all the felt and cushions you would expect at a live dealer table, Weike's
electronic betting tables could be the wave of the future, much in the same way
that video poker became a craze in the 80's. With innovation like that, there's
nothing stopping Weike Gaming from indeed becoming Asia's top gaming machine
manufacturer. Keep your eyes out for them.
