he flagship casino of the Spanish hotel, resort and casino group Grup Peralada is now the first casino in Spain able to offer its guests the fabulous Novo TouchBet Live-Roulette.
The largest casino in the Spanish market, Casino Barcelona, holds an excellent reputation for its attractive gaming offering, first class service and entertainment. It is the largest of four high class casinos operated by Grup Peralada. In 2007, following a major renovation and modernization of this prestige operation, the casino management decided to offer its guests state-of-the-art Novomatic Roulette entertainment made by AGI.
Casino Barcelona was the first casino in Spain to implement and operate the Novo Multi-Roulette, a fully automated Roulette system consisting of an automated Roulette wheel and individual player terminals.This first Spanish Novo Multi-Roulette installation with 24 individual player terminals and one fully automated Roulette wheel was an instant success and became a definite favourite among the casino’s guests. In fact, the guest reaction was so enthusiastic that the casino decided to extend the electronic table gaming offering and order a further 24 terminals and a second automated wheel in mid 2008.
Now the casino has ordered a further electronic Roulette system: The Novo TouchBet Live-Roulette consists of fully automated electronic player stations, available in various configurations from two to 250 stations. Hooked to a classic, dealer-operated, live Roulette wheel, the system features all the advantages of the Novo Unity multiplayer platform such as automated cash handling, the privacy of individual player terminals, increased game frequency, dramatic reduction of mistakes in operation and much more.
The new Novo TouchBet Live-Roulette installation at Casino Barcelona comprises 12 individual slant top terminals as well as a system for camera live streaming and animation display of all bets placed on four giant plasma screens. It offers guests of Casino Barcelona the traditional thrill of the live game Roulette combined with the privacy and comfort of individual player stations. It is characterized by increased game frequency and enhanced security.
The inauguration of the Novo TouchBet Live-Roulette installation on May 15th was celebrated with champagne and small gifts for the casino guests who had come to try and test the new Roulette setup. As expected the feedback was extremely positive: the guests enjoyed the game and the performance of the Novo TouchBet Live-Roulette on its first weekend was excellent.
Today, Casino Barcelona operates three Novomatic Roulette systems with a total of 60 terminals as well as nine Multi-Gaminator video slots with a broad selection of thrilling game mixes. The management is very pleased with the excellent performance of the Novomatic gaming equipment and great customer feedback.
Jose Maria Roig, Director at Casino Barcelona: “Our strategic decision for Novomatic equipment has repeatedly proved right. After the tremendous customer response to our two existing Novo Multi-Roulette systems, we decided to add a further dimension to our electronic Roulette offering with the Novo TouchBet Live-Roulette. I am convinced that our guests will continue to enjoy this blend of traditional live gaming thrill and increased privacy and comfort at our casino.”
Sales Director Novomatic Gaming Spain, Jordi Pedragosa, adds: “It is great to see the excellent acceptance of our multiplayer products by the guests of Casino Barcelona. In no time at all they have become a highlight on the gaming floor. Driven by our great confidence in the quality and profitability of our products we offered and installed our products in 2007 for the first time at Casino Barcelona. Their excellent performance is encouraging and we are confident that we will be able to further deepen the great business relationships with our customer. I would like to use this opportunity to say “Thank You” to Casino Barcelona for their trust and confidence over the past two years.”
