hat did the company present on G2E Asia 2009?
We presented a new series of double screen machines with interesting bonuses. This is our first presentation in this market in order to be able to enter. We have obtained the GLI-11 certificate for Macau, so we will be able to release more products for this market, because GLI is essencial here. Besides, in our games it is included SAS protocol, which is also required by most regional casinos.
In the Asia Pacific region. Which is the most important market for you?
Initially, Macau, of course. All the customers ask: Have you any machine or game in the Macau market? It is a starting point for us. The number of slots here is not big because most of the players come from China, and Chinese are not so fond of slots.
In this particular market. Which is the strategy you develop in your games?
First, we look to enter as a slots brand and we will keep on developing other games that will be more appropriate for this market. We are already planning another new game based in Baccarat, but in a video slot. Talking about numbers, we will have to release that type of games because slots occupy just a 10% of casinos here.
Which is the balance you can make on the presence of the firm in this event?
I came last year to visit the show and the flow of visitors was pretty good; however, worldwide economic problems, added to the swine flu, caused a decrease in the number of visitors. With regards to the type of visitors, most are operators of local casinos. There is also a percentage of visitors from Europe, that have come in search of providers of cabinets and games.
In what other events will you be present?
The next event in which we will be present will be G2E Las Vegas.
