“Venezia” was inaugurated in Ciudad del Este

Novomatic subsidiary inaugurates local electronic casino in Paraguay

(Paraguay).- The electronic casino “Venezia” in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, celebrated its official opening on March 1st, 2014 with a big ‘fiesta. ’Special amenities were provided for the patrons and numerous VIP guests were also in attendance. The new gambling venue is operated by the local Novomatic Group subsidiary, Crown Gaming Paraguay.

Venezia Sala de Juegos de Azar’ is located in downtown Ciudad del Este, the capital of the Alto Paraná Department, right at Paraguay’s border with Brazil. Being very close to Foz do Iguazu, the area is highly frequented by tourists. Due to its proximity to Brazil, this rather small city with a population of approximately 223,350 is a traditional gaming destination for numerous Brazilian visitors who come from nearby locations like Curitiba (1.752 million residents), Cascavel (305,600),and even from Sao Paulo (11.32 million)for a day trip. 

Unlike Paraguay, Brazil lacks a governmental regulatory framework for gaming. Therefore all offered gaming is illegal and as such provides no secure basis or fair conditions for any reliable gaming entertainment. Consequently, Brazilians travel to neighbouring countries with a strict regulatory framework like Paraguay with the sole purpose of enjoying legal gaming.

On March 1st the electronic casino Venezia was inaugurated by Dr Justo ZacaríasIrún, Governor of Alto Paraná and board member of the CONAJZAR (National Gambling Committee), Dr Alberto Rodriguez, President of the ‘Junta Municipal’, representing the Mayor of Ciudad del Este, and Adriana Gorchs de Cabello, Managing Director, Crown Gaming Paraguay S. A. Further invited guests were B2B customers from various casinos in the region and colleagues from the NOVOMATIC Group companies Octavian de Argentina and Crown Gaming Peru.

The casino premises comprise a total size of 1,200sqm including parking facilities for the guests.  Its 600 sqm gaming floor features a total of 130 slot machines with a well-balanced mix of state-of-the-art gaming equipment featuring the most recent NOVOMATIC machines: DOMINATOR, NOVOSTAR Slant Top and Super-V+ Gaminator III machines as well as Novo

Super-Vision cabinets with the latest Coolfire II and NOVO LINE Interactive games, as well as multi-game mixes in addition to slots of numerous other international suppliers and an electronic eight player-Roulette island.

Entertainment options at the ‘Sala de JuegosVenezia’ include regular live shows as well as Bingo and Roulette tournaments. In line with the general hospitality service, guests are offered snacks, coffee and soft drinks during the week and special dishes during weekends.

The casino is networked with Octavian’s ACP casino management system (Accounting – Control – Progessives) which includes the player loyalty module that allows for personalized guest promotion and advertising activities.

Venezia’s interior design was strongly inspired by the Venetian Carnival which was also the motto of the opening celebration. The walls are decorated with beautiful paintings of the famous Paraguayan Artist Ricardo Migliorisi who was also inspired by the Venetian Carnival to create marvellous, decorative pieces of art.

Satisfied by the results, Adriana Gorchs de Cabello commented: “We are very proud of the successful inauguration and excellent response of our guests. Right on the opening day we were happy to welcome more than 250 guests and ever since they have embraced our gaming offering very positively. Our guests come from the Ciudad del Este region as well as across the border from Brazil. The instant success of this new ‘Sala de Juegos’ shows that the location, variety of games, as well as the slot floor layout were spot on. I’d like to use this opportunity to thank our whole team as well as our guests for this unforgettable launch of the sala de juegosVenezia.”
