Namco and Gamblit bring Pac-Man to gaming floor

Gamblit Gaming has secured a partnership with Japan based Bandai Namco Entertainment, the developer behind the iconic arcade game PAC-MAN, to launch a one-of-a-kind casino experience with PAC-MAN Battle Casino. The new title will make its world debut at Gamblit’s booth during G2E 2017.

Considered to be among the most recognised videogame characters of all-time, PAC-MAN originally launched in 1980 and has become one of the longest running video game franchises in arcades and virtually every game system ever made.

PAC-MAN Battle Casino will feature cutting-edge real-money gaming mechanics as 2-4 players battle each other for a cash prize, while retaining the fun and retro maze gameplay that has made PAC-MAN a fan-favorite around the world.

The original Japanese development team behind PAC-MAN Battle Royale is teaming up with Gamblit Gaming on a co-development project to bring PAC-MAN Battle Casino to life on casino floors in early 2018 on Gamblit’s Model G interactive game tables. They are also planning to develop an all new single player PAC-MAN experience for Gamblit’s TriStation hardware.

"Like so many people, PAC-MAN was the first arcade game I ever played,” said Darion Lowenstein, Chief Marketing Officer, Gamblit Gaming. "Partnering with the visionary team at Bandai Namco Entertainment to bring an entirely new and innovative experience to fellow PAC-MAN fans is truly an honor and a dream come true for me,” Lowenstein added.

"PAC-MAN is one of the most famous and popular video games,” said Yoshiyasu Horiuchi, Executive Officer, AM Business Unit of Bandai Namco Entertainment. "We believe PAC-MAN Battle Casino will appeal to a wide range of people, especially those who once played PAC-MAN.”

The new title will make its world debut at the Gamblit Gaming booth during the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), next October 3-5, 2017.
