eing held in Peru’s capital city, Lima on June 19th and 20th and in the Jockey Exhibition Centre, Merkur Gaming will once again be one of the event’s largest exhibitor and will underline the brands success of 2018 and the further progress now being made in 2019.
A significant milestone was reached last year as Merkur Gaming Peru recorded 3,760 machines in operation on Peru’s slot floors. From the country’s 731 licensed gaming halls Merkur Gaming is installed and working in 84.9% of 621 locations: an all-time record, so far. Merkur Gaming is a respected, top level, tier one brand in Peruvian gaming and the company records its high appreciation for the trust, loyalty and support of all of Peru’s leading operators.
One of the biggest elements of the Merkur story in Peru to date has been the international smash hit, the Avantgarde Powerhouse multi-game machine. That model, together with its upright counterpart, the Evostar Trio, will feature on Merkur’s booth (number 49) in Lima as will the now famous Merkur Beer Garden hospitality area that has been redesigned and enlarged, to cater for demand, this year.
Charles Hiten, CEO Merkur Gaming Americas, commented: "Peru is one of the most significant markets in Latin America for Merkur Gaming. To be now, after just a few short years, active in 85% of the country’s licensed gaming operations is a testament to our Merkur Gaming Peru team and to the strength of our brand and our made in Germany products. As we continue to bring new and exciting games and cabinets to market we are fully committed to providing operators with all the support that they need as well meeting Peru’s ever increasingly sophisticated and knowledgeable players’ wish for ever greater levels of gaming entertainment. We look forward once again to Peru Gaming Show and to welcoming all our customers, business partners and visitors."
Tomas Mieles, Sales Director Merkur Gaming Latin America, added: "I am, I believe justifiably, proud of what the Merkur Gaming Peru team has achieved to date. We are in the Peruvian market for the long term and we are confident of further expansion and success in the future. We can be sure that Peru Gaming Show 2019 will mark another hugely positive milestone in our development."
