You remember back in the 1980’s when PacMan was the game that gobbled up all of your quarters, well now he is back bigger and better than ever and ready to gobble up more than just your quarters.
The company Bandai Namco has proudly adorned its namesake icon PacMan onto its slot machine debut, the West’s favorite gambling tradition.
The people of Japan just love gaming on those pachinko and pachislot machines. Pachinko is actually a huge billion dollar industry for gaming companies within Japan such as Bandai Namco, SEGA as well as Konami. In fact the SEGA Company made 1 billion dollars on pachinko machines alone in just a nine month period. But when you are in the West such as the United States, it is the slot machine that still reigns supreme. Being very interested in tapping into this ever flowing rich vein of cash, Bandai Namco is bringing their slot machines into the casinos of Las Vegas all starting with everyone’s favorite video game PacMan Wild Edition.
The PacMan game once took the arcade scene by storm and it was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “Most Successful Coin-Operated Arcade Game,” now he is back to take over the world as a casino slot machine. There is no doubt that this PacMan themed slot machine will become a huge hit for the Bandai Namco Company, and it will generate a great flow of overseas cash. Yet, within Japan there is nothing that can top pachislot and the pachinko games, these games are massively lucrative and have shown no signs of slowing down. The gaming divisions are very important to many of the Japanese publishers and gaming companies – so in other words if anything actually ever happened to the gambling industry, the gaming industry just may burst at the seams.
PacMan Wild Edition will be up and ready to gobble up your cash in the Summer of 2017.
