ow do you gear up for the 2017 Global Gaming Expo? What new innovations and developments can we expect to see at the show?
The company’s product range is constantly evolving and adapting to new challenges, standards and trends in the gaming industry worldwide, and this year is just packed with novelties, that are making every exhibition appearance special and worth the visit. The G2E show in Las Vegas will witness the unveiling of brand new single terminal units (Table top, Felix T and Wiky), an improved version of the Lucky 8 electronic roulette, that was revealed exactly a year ago at the same show. The Royal Derby is already a recognized and highly desired machine, which has brought fresh energy to the world of automated horse-racing machines. The Multitouch Roulette table has made a very successful debut at the ICE show in London and will be shown for the first time in the USA, as will the Felix S slot machines. Alfastreet has prepared a comprehensive portfolio of gaming solutions for this year's show in Las Vegas.
What are your key areas of focus to ensure business growth in the Americas?
Americas is an extremely important region for us, and we are constantly working with our distributors and representatives to provide optimal product selection and support to all operators. All the efforts translated in huge success and achievement of the leading position on the majority of markets. All departments are working closely together to anticipate the trends on every single jurisdiction and predict what will be a gaming machine of tomorrow.
In the United States, the regulatory landscape is less straightforward than in Europe. How do you see the market evolving across the different states under the Trump administration?
We don’t see too many changes, the markets are regulated properly and there’s no real reason to mess with the system. Alfastreet has a precise long-term strategy for the United States and so far everything is proceeding according to our plan. American casinos provide substantial sales volume and have big potential for the future. There’s high demand for technically advanced gaming equipment, that embraces novelties and innovation, therefore a natural environment for our products.
Why should attendees visit your G2E booth this year? How do your casino solutions stand out from the rest?
Almost the entire product range has been changed or renewed from the last edition and it will be definitely worth a visit.
