he 17th edition of the Peru Gaming Show proved to be a great success for Merkur Gaming, thanks to a brand new booth design, the enlarged Merkur Beer Garden and, an array of products that included a display of its newest innovation, Rapid Thunder.
"Peru Gaming Show is not the physically biggest show in Latin America but is certainly one of the most friendly," the company said in a statement. "With a brand new stand design (created by Merkur’s international show guru, Tino Fuzul) right at the entrance to the main hall and also with an enlarged, to cater for demand, Merkur beer garden, the presence this year was more striking than ever."
Merkur’s multigame offerings were presented in the Avantgarde, Avantgarde Trio and Evostar cabinets and featured top line game titles already popular in Peru, plus some brand new games. The undoubted feature presentation was the first sight in Peru of the Rapid Thunder that had first been previewed in the US at the recent NIGA and Juegos Miami events.
According to the company, the visitor response to Rapid Thunder was ‘nothing less than sensational’. This innovative feature is a unique, high value, jackpot bonus that is built directly into hot games such as Taco Tuesday, Immortal Emperor, Land of Charms and others and where players can win bonus prizes up to US$ 10,000 or equivalent in local currency. Describing this new attraction Merkur stated: ‘With Rapid Thunder, the game has a jackpot bonus and the jackpot bonus IS the game!’
Tomas Mieles, Sales Director Latin America and general manager of Merkur Gaming Peru summed up the Peru Gaming Show by saying: "This has been a fantastic show for Merkur Gaming. The new booth is great, the beer garden was once again the center point of the whole show and the visitors were hugely enthusiastic about the games and cabinets that we displayed. The presentation of Rapid Thunder was simply sensational and, once the necessary field trial and approvals are completed, I and our whole team are 100% convinced that we have created something special that will prove to be a big winner in Peru and beyond."
