Metro Jackpot is a national chain of gaming clubs that spreads across ten of Ukraine's regions. First Metro Jackpot gaming clubs were opened in Kiev nine years ago, having grown into a city network of 71 sites with 3750 slot machines by 2007.
Another Ritzio's brand, King, is a chain of premium class gaming clubs and casinos in Kiev. King sites provide its guests with a unique experience by offering a variety of entertainment, food and beverages services and an attractive mix of gaming facilities. Launched in 2004, the project has developed into 18 gaming locations including 5 casinos, 1750 slot machines and 43 tables.
“We believe the combination of the expansion and the right marketing messages are resulting in increased popularity of our operations, especially for King,” comments Vitaly Veselko, CEO of Ritzio Entertainment Group. “We continue to feel we are well-positioned to enhance our performance in Ukraine and provide the player with top quality gaming services.”
Today Ritzio continues to advance its strategy in the local market by unrolling regional operations and promoting its key brands. The company also plans a further development of premium class operations in Ukraine's largest cities and intends to launch a luxury casino hotel project.
