hat can you tell us about the products you're planning to unleash at Peru Gaming Show? Why is this trade show a good fit for Alfastreet?
The demand in the region is very specific and that’s why we are bringing our Lucky 8 electronic Roulette machine, that combines all the features of an Alfastreet Roulette with a fresh, compact and rational styling, that provides significant space and economic savings compared to the standard R8. The second machine is our unique product, the Royal Derby, that has already made its mark on the market and is among the most requested gaming machines in the region. Latam markets have been the most successful ones for the company in the last couple of years, therefore also of extreme importance.
How are you planning to captivate Andean casino operators and players alike?
Both parties are after the same thing; a fun, beautiful, functional and reliable machine, that can provide quality entertainment, while retaining the genuine feel and fairness of a live game. Alfastreet has been doing it for over 25 years and is highly appreciated among players and operators.
What are operators most concerned about these days?
Same things as always, really – how to make their business better, how to optimize the processes, while watching the regulations imposed by their governments. The trend is to provide better experiences with quality equipment and services, that ultimately sets apart a good location from a mediocre one.
How do you feel these gambling markets will evolve in terms of player trends and technology impacts?
As already mentioned, more and more new technologies will find their way into gaming venues, broadening the supply and ways of enjoying ones time, feeling the thrill and rush of a well designed game. Having said that, there’ll always remain classic casino games and live tables, that have withstood the test of time and are not moving anywhere.
What does the future have in store for the sector?
It is hard to make predictions, our guess would be a constant evolution of the technology and designs, although there’s no real signal of any new games being effective in gaming venues. The hard core players are reluctant to embrace any radical novelties, the one area where there seems to be common consensus is the hybrid systems, that bring the happening from inside to the outside of the venue, such as for example the Alfastreet Remote Play.
