Takara Gaming Group (TGG) has lauded the success of its world first Chinese shooting game “Fish Hunter” after showcasing it to the world at ICE Totally Gaming in London last week.

“Fish Hunter” is a real-time fish shooting simulation game with a range of bonus features that has captured the video skill game market in China since its debut in 2009. TGG’s engineering team has now converted the famous shooting game onto a casino gaming floor in partnership with a China based video game manufacturer. 

The innovative approach of the Chinese shooting game is gives casino operators a unique new entertainment offering for the valuable Chinese VIP segment beyond traditional baccarat which has dominated the Macau market, TGG said.

“With the world’s first Chinese shooting game now made possible for casino players via TGG open-source technology, I am excited to see the casino operators are now back in control to take the lead of the product offering to their very own valuable customer in the Asian VIP and mass market segment, which accounted for 95% of gaming revenue in Macau,” said TGG co-founder and CEO Raymond Chan.

“This could be the biggest thing in gaming innovation since the invention of slot machines 100 years ago and we are proud to be part of the team with casino operators and game manufacturers making that happens together.”

TGG said it expects “Fish hunter” will attract major video and mobile game manufacturers to join TGG’s development team and bring the gaming industry towards the next chapter in conveying brand new dimensions of electronic gaming to the casino floor.
