s the Mexican market continues to develop at a rapid pace, both BMM and NYCE wanted to ensure all global products had a clear path to meet the voluntary certification requirements. BMM & NYCE have chosen to work together closely over the last several months to ensure BMM meets the necessary criteria and achieve this significant milestone.
Mexico has more than 70,000 gaming devices operating in over 300 slot parlors. BMM's COO for the Americas, Mike Dreitzer said, "BMM is committed to the gaming industry in Mexico and seeks to bring its knowledge and experience to the market to help foster its successful growth. Mexico has a very large gambling market, and BMM sees a bright future for this industry for both operators and manufacturers."
BMM Global President and CEO Martin Storm said, "BMM has committed many resources to reaching this goal and we are very pleased to bring this process to fruition. In particular, we wish to thank NYCE President, Gerardo Hernandez Garza and Carlos Perez Munguia, NYCE National Director for their support and encouragement during this process. We look forward to many years of service in this market and are appreciative of NYCE's recognition of BMM.
Mike Dreitzer, COO of BMM Americas continued, "Although the landscape of the regulatory framework in Mexico is an evolving process, by working with NYCE as BMM has been, we continue to support the stakeholders in the Mexican gaming industry to the greatest extent possible."
