Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The new Corona Resort and Casino on Phu Quoc, the largest island in Vietnam, selected NOVOMATIC as its premium supplier to provide a range of gaming terminals, the casino management system and media technology across its casino floor. The first of three casinos to trial local play, Corona Casino opened this month and marks the first time that Vietnamese can enter casinos in their country.

 

NOVOMATIC and Ainsworth represent some 35% of the entire slot floor, with a total of 200 state-of-the-art slot machines and 125 electronic table games terminals.

Featuring a variety of cutting-edge solutions, the NOVOMATIC and Ainsworth slot machines include an assortment of popular and market-attuned content, with a selection of leading multi-game mixes and games, set to excite tourists and local players alike.

A large NOVOMATIC electronic table games stadium acts as the centrepiece of the casino. Based on the NOVO LINE Novo Unity™ II platform, the ETG area consists of 125 gaming positions, featuring the sleek EXECUTIVE SL™ 1.24 terminals – and offers players the option of Baccarat, Roulette and Sic-Bo.

The casino houses a total of 1,000 slot machines from a range of manufacturers, all managed by the Octavian myACP casino management system. The luxurious venue also includes 100 gaming tables, offering eight types of games such as Baccarat, Roulette, Black Jack, Sic-Bo and several forms of Poker, as well as VIP facilities, a private sky casino and three restaurants.

Providing a first-rate media solution for the venue, NOVOMATIC Media Technologies has implemented an Absolute Vision™ system that controls more than 400 TV screens and monitors throughout the casino – as well as a custom-built and larger-than-life 45m2 LED video wall.

NOVOMATIC, supported by its Asian distributor Jade Entertainment and Gaming, carried out the installation in several phases ahead of the grand opening on January 19. Corona Resort and Casino is the first of three properties in Vietnam to be authorised by the government to allow economically-qualified locals to enter casinos, under a three-year trial scheme.

Peter Keijzer, General Manager Corona Casino, said: “Casinos these days are not just about slots and tables anymore. We selected NOVOMATIC because of their expertise and we believe in helping companies discover new territories. Phu Quoc Vietnam is Asia but also has a lot of European customers, which is why Upffinity Management Company created a mix of slot and table products from all over the world. We had to build this casino in seven months so we needed fast and short communication lines – NOVOMATIC and Jade Gaming performed and executed. It’s that simple.”

Lawrence Levy, VP Global Sales NOVOMATIC, added: “We are delighted to provide a range of leading NOVOMATIC and Ainsworth gaming machines, as well as the casino system and media solutions, to the new Corona Casino. The Southeast Asia region is a strong area of growth for NOVOMATIC, and we are extremely excited to play a major role in the development of Vietnam.”

As part of a plan to stem problems related to gambling, Japan is going to launch a scheme which limits people’s access to casinos and other betting establishments as well as removing cash machines from these locations. The move comes ahead of the opening of several casinos in the country.

As  per the plan, prefectures in the country will also formulate their own rules to counter any gambling-related problems.

“We will create a healthy society by thoroughly implementing measures based on the basic plan in order to prevent people from finding themselves in difficult situations,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.

Under the basic plan, operators of slot machines, pachinko parlours and government-operated gambling venues, including horse racing and keirin racing tracks, have been asked to remove cash machines from their facilities. Pachinko parlour operators are urged not to allow customers to enter their premises if requested by family members. The authorities also urged horse racetrack operators to utilise facial recognition systems to restrict the entry of gambling addicts.

Other measures in place include a proposal on putting up warnings about gambling addiction on newspapers, magazines, and TV commercials. It also urges the country’s 47 prefectures and 20 major cities to set up treatment facilities for gambling addicts by 2020.
