Group CEO Cath Burns commented, “At last year’s show we spoke about focusing heavily on refining and improving our processes and investing in our products and our people. The first stage of this is now complete and we are able to provide a clear vision of the future - our products and services and to develop and grow customer partnerships by understanding their challenges and business requirements. We are adding new dimensions to what we do, from technical support to a significant investment in key areas, such as Asia to service the fastest growing region in our business”.

With the recent installations of Supernova tables across South Africa, Asian operators were keen to see the added potential that Supernova offers for all their live table games.
The firm’s continued commitment to product development was highlighted with the launch of some new regionally inspired products. Blaze gaming surface technology, available for Baccarat and Sic Bo, brings stunning animations to live tables. Projected through a traditional layout, Blaze brings excitement to games and attracts new players by making tables stand out on the casino floor. For added game security, all winning bets and game sequences are highlighted and standard gaming layouts cover the complete table surface. Blaze gaming surface technology will be rolled out in the coming year to cover a full range of table games.
Also new for 2013, Dragon Roulette brings Asian excitement to the traditional game of Roulette with odds of up to 300 to 1. Utilising Double Action Roulette wheel technology, the game uses two independently rotating cylinders. The outer cylinder has conventional Roulette numbers and the inner cylinder has ‘Dragon’ bonus symbols. In the event the ball comes to rest in alignment with one of the gold or silver dragons, wagers placed on the corresponding ‘Dragon Racetrack’ number will be paid. With its exciting Asian twist, operators from across the region were impressed by the simplicity and added player appeal of Dragon Roulette.
