he GLI approval is a mandatory technology certification for the Macau market and a pre-requisite for commercialization.
Macau is a Chinese island near Hong Kong that has surpassed Las Vegas in terms of number of table games and in total gaming revenues per casino. Reputed American casino chains including the Wynn, the Venetian, Venetian Sands and the MGM have or are currently entering the Macau market. The most popular casino table games in Macau are Baccarat, Poker and Blackjack.
The percentage of table games per casino in the Macau market is far superior to the US casinos as this emerging dominating market is more oriented to table games than other products such as slot machines. This represents an unprecedented opportunity for table game bonusing and jackpot related technology.
“Now that we have secured long term relationships in Las Vegas with Harrah Entertainment and Station Casinos, our strategic focus is now Macau. The number of table games in Macau that can benefit from our systems can be counted in the thousands and we have developed the important business relationships to enter this important and strategic market”, stated Earle G. Hall, President & CEO. “The GLI approval for commercialization in Macau was the most important step in our plan to enter this market with our American partners in 2008”.
