Gaming Arts Announces Exclusive Partnership with Jumbo Technology

By | March 23, 2022


Gaming Arts has announced an exclusive partnership with Taiwan’s Jumbo Technology to bring its underwater-themed game, Ocean Phoenix, to North American casinos.

Ocean Phoenix debuted at the Gaming Arts booth during G2E 2021 and was installed at California’s Pechanga Resort Casino last month. Now, both companies are eyeing further North American expansion.

“We are very exhilarated to have this opportunity to launch our first multi-player Fishing Game, which has been popular in Asia, in one of the best casinos in North America. It’s been a privilege to work hand in glove with Gaming Arts for this project, and we are hoping the game will provide U.S. Players an exceptional gaming experience,” Allen Hsu, Vice President of Jumbo Technology, said.

Ocean Phoenix is played on an over seven-foot-long gaming console that resembles a table, around which there is room for up to six people. During gameplay, all players participate in the same game and can see the 66-inch screen in the center of the gaming area. Players work independently to capture the game’s “Four Beasts” – the Mighty Phoenix, the Ancient Crocodile, the Flawless Octopus, and the Elegant Mermaid. The premise is to fire upon the invading creatures, including the Fantastic Beasts, and capture them. Each shot taken counts for game credits. When a player has captured the target, he or she receives credit awards. Players can also earn additional weaponry within the game that aids them in their quest to capture their targets.

“Ocean Phoenix is unlike any gaming machine now on casino floors. We are pleased to work with Jumbo to bring this exciting game to the North American markets. The arcade-style cabinet will attract players and build a loyal fanbase as they encounter exciting characters and numerous opportunities to Win Big,” Jean Venneman, COO of Gaming Arts, said.
