ccording to the Gaming Control Board, which forms part of the Ministry of Economy and Finance, Type "A" machines collected almost USD 42 million, while in 2012 they made USD 37 million - an increase to the state's coffers by more than USD 4.5 million.
Casinos made revenues of USD 24.5 million, fractionally up from the USD 24, 3 million they registered in 2012. Type "C" machines won USD 24,000 more in 2013 than in 2012. These figures, added to the money made through other games of chance - such as Right to key, televised bingo, records and game programs, among others - increased state proceeds by 5% compared with 2012. Against this positive backdrop SAGSE Central America & Caribbean will be celebrating its 10 edition. Organizers have expanded the exhibition space, which will take place on May 7-8 in the beautiful city of Panama at the new Hotel El Panama Convention Center.

We are sure that, in the near future, SAGSE Central America & Caribbean will be one of the most important trade shows in the world, together with Buenos Aires, Las Vegas and London,” he added.
The best international Gaming manufacturers see SAGSE as an unmissable chance to showcase their products. Today Panama is the strategic hub for an international event with relevance from Mexico to Peru to the Caribbean, and beyond.
