Mohegan Sun First In U.S. To Have GameCo’s Riches of the Golden Dragon Video Game Gambling™ Machines!
UNCASVILLE, CT (March 26, 2019) – Mohegan Sun is excited to announce a big addition to the gaming floor in Casino of the Earth. The newest Video Game Gambling™ title, Riches of the Golden Dragon, from innovative gaming company, Gameco LLC, is now live near Season’s Buffett at Mohegan Sun. The three new machines at Mohegan Sun mark the first roll-out of this game in the United States!
“Providing entertaining and unique gaming experiences across our beautiful casinos at Mohegan Sun is always something we are focused on,” said Ray Pineault, President & General Manager of Mohegan Sun. “Being the first entertainment destination to launch GameCo’s Riches of the Golden Dragon, not only in the Northeast but in the United States, is something we’re very excited to rollout for guests,”
Riches of the Golden Dragon features Video Game Gambling™. To start, players will be presented with three dragon tiles and within each there is a reveal of either an immediate cash reward, tokens that can be used in Mini-Games, or a chance at a Bonus Round or Mini-Game. The Bonus Round and Mini-Games are where skill comes in to play and also where tokens earned up to that point, can be used to instantly win cash inside a mini-game. In some cases, a selected tile will take players directly to a fun Mini-Game like the “Melt Coins,’ where players melt falling coins, while avoiding falling rocks, with an electric current by pressing the corresponding buttons. There is also a “Match Dragons” mini-game, where players use the buttons on the deck to match three of the same type of dragon on screen at one time. The Mini-Games provide players with a return to player (RTP) of 100% or more when playing optimally. At any point too, the initial selection among three tiles can reveal an immediate progressive jackpot win up to $5,000!
“The Pick and Win play style provides a really unique gaming experience and we are thrilled to have Mohegan Sun as our first launch partner”, said Blaine Graboyes, Founder and CEO GameCo LLC. “Mohegan Sun’s commitment to providing the newest and best experiences to their guests makes it an ideal location for our debut.”
Riches of the Golden Dragon joins recent additions to Mohegan Sun that also include James Bond 007 Game Series & Blake Shelton slots.
