One of the novelties introduces was the TAGO. Which are the main features of this new game?
Alfastreet has the exclusivity on TAGO’ game, which is a new game of chance created by a group of Swiss gaming conosceurs. The game itself resembles to Poker and Baccarat game and it’s very challenging and appealing to players.
It is also a challenge for us to bring a completely new game into the market, but the strong appeal of the brand Alfastreet and the fact that we this game shares the same platform with the Poker machine will definitively help the introduction.
With the introduction of the TAGO’ game we are showing our innovation spirit that was always one of the characteristics of Alfastreet brand.

Which is the company’s strategy to keep growing in 2009?
The 2009 will be a difficult year for the industry; we all know that by now. This will probably not be a year of growth, but a year of finding new, alternative opportunities to prepare the future growth. Year’s of crisis are years of biggest opportunities - if you can spot them! Here I can see Alfastreet in a very good position compared to the competition.
Do you think the international economic crisis will affect Alfastreet's plans in the short term?
This is as always a difficult question. We hope that it won’t, but we know that it will! Our measures against the crisis are: devotion towards the customer, high quality products and new innovative sales techniques.

Latin American markets are very important for Alfastreet and one of our biggest bets for the future. We have a special and very good relationship with the operators in the area and they know the quality of our products. We have launched a very successful operation in Mexico and we are looking to expand it into whole Latin America.
