EGT’s brand-new & unique Cai Fu Tian Jiang linked-progressive concept has made its German debut and is now entertaining and delighting the players of Spielbank Bad Homburg, one of Germany’s most traditional casinos located in the state of Hessia.
Housed in the sleek and elegant G 50 J2 Up cabinet, one of the newest members in EGT’s General Series hardware lineup, the three Asian-themed game titles Incredible Lanterns, Pearls of Wealth and Expanded Riches take players frequently on a journey into their individual free spin rounds offering exciting Hold & Respin features, increasing multipliers and expanding wild symbols.
The 50-inch vertical J-curved display with integrated touch screen functionality and numerous ergonomic features provides an unforgettable and bright gaming experience which reaches its peak during the jackpot feature round, where players actively chase and turn Golden Coins for jackpots, bonuses and credit prizes that literally “rain” across the whole screen and can be won multiple times.
“When we presented EGT’s new action-packed linked-progressive concept inside this beautiful looking new cabinet to the decision makers of Spielbank Bad Homburg, they immediately expressed their interest to add that strong combination to their casino floor. Only a few months later we are very proud and satisfied to see that Cai Fu Tian Jiang has quickly won the hearts of their players,” said Emilia Tomachinska, Managing Director of E-Systems, EGT’s distributor in the German speaking regions of Europe.
Representatives of Spielbank Bad Homburg also expressed their happiness about the addition of Cai Fu Tian Jiang, which is already the second successful linked-progressive concept from EGT on their casino floor after the installation of Fu Gui Rong Hua in 2017. They also stated that all of EGT’s products – linked-progressives and multigames – are very well accepted by their players in general, which is a serious achievement in the highly-competitive German market.
This installation has strengthened once again the fruitful long-term collaboration between Spielbank Bad Homburg, EGT, and E-Systems, which started all the way back in 2008 and has been growing ever since.
Game Changers and Guild X broke records in Berlin
Guild Esports, a global esports team organisation, took sixth place overall with team Guild X in the inaugural VALORANT Game Changers Championship, held in Berlin (15-20 November).
Following a year of intense regional competition, the world’s most elite Game Changers squads went head-to-head in person, for the first time ever, to crown a global champion in Germany. Bringing together the best teams from North America, Brazil, EMEA, APAC, LATAM and East Asia, G2 Esports won the Grand Final to lift the coveted championship trophy.
Supporting women in gaming is a key part of Guild’s strategy within the sporting community, aligning with the aims of Game Changers to create new opportunities and exposure for women and other marginalised genders within VALORANT esports.
The tournament in Berlin, with over 150,000 viewers* tuning in, demonstrates how women in gaming and teams such as Guild X are not just changing the game but also breaking records. According to Esports Charts, Game Changers has become the most-watched tournament for women’s esports.
On Sunday, Guild also hosted a watch party at the Sky Guild Gaming Centre in Shoreditch with talent Elz the Witch, Iain Chambers plus other influencers such as Megsoundslikeegg and Geo Collins in attendance. Even though Guild X was not in the Grand Final, Guild, along with its supporting partners Sky and Subway, wanted to offer a safe space for VALORANT fans to watch the finale, especially women and marginalised gender fans.
Jasmine Skee, Chief Marketing Officer at Guild Esports, said: “Our vision at Guild is to lead the way in supporting the future of women in gaming, and we are committed to equal opportunities for our Guild X players. The Game Changers Championship in Berlin was a hugely successful event and we are extremely proud as an organisation to have been a part of it. Congratulations to all at G2 Esports on their victory in such a milestone event for the esports industry. With the announcement of the new Game Changers format, we’re excited to watch our Guild X team, and the wider women esports industry, grow.”
Guild X has been confirmed this week as automatic top-tier qualifiers for the VALORANT Game Changers EMEA 2023 competition, with relegation rules now being in place as part of the new format changes announced. The Game Changers tournament will continue to break down stereotypes, elevate women and allow them to further their careers in a dedicated safe space, and provide a platform for professional growth both in and outside of the game – all actions that are completely aligned with Guild’s strategy moving into 2023 and beyond.
