he establishment is a result of the cooperative efforts and expertise of two practitioners in the gaming field with over 15 years of experience; Ivan Grigorov and Adam Vajdak. They both have managed their own casino companies before stepping into their position at EGT as General Managers of the Czech office. Leading a team of 13 professionals, they will endeavour to keep the high global EGT standards and to fulfil their mission to provide a top range of gaming content and products, aligned to the local specifics.
“The regional gaming market is well developed and saturated and all domestic manufacturers have already established good image,” shared Vajdak. “Compared to some other countries though it lacks enough presence of worldwide known brands where we find our potential. The gaming regulations and requirements are very strict and particular and are a serious entrance barrier for all new providers, but we are accustomed to fulfilling exacting criteria and are confident that will be able to achieve satisfying results in the next several years. For the purpose we will mainly rely on EGT’s main R&D department with which we cooperate closely in tailoring our products to the local specifics, especially when it comes to the software. Our major advantage is the vast experience we have accumulated from our global operations, the speed of service we achieved and the good knowledge we have firsthand for our customers and players, as me and my partner Grigorov have been in the casino business for many years not long ago.”
The Czech office will provide the complete slot portfolio of EGT, as well as the products of EGT Multiplayer and the online games of EGT Interactive. Currently the company offers the multigame mixes Green and Blue Collection, each of 12 diverse and highly appealing titles, and the cabinets P-24/24 Up, P-27/27 St Slim and P-27/32H St. Its near future plans include the gradually expansion of its product proposals with machines and gaming content, based on clients’ expectations and players’ preferences.
“The Czech market is mainly oriented to slant top and upright cabinets, as well as fruit-themed games and here EGT has a lot to present,” commented Ivan Grigorov. “In line with the domestic standards our products are modern and represent the high-end technologies, so we see them as the future of the local gaming industry. They were developed to maximize the comfort and were also designed for top level satisfaction of both operators and players. The mere slogan of EGT “We give more”, speaks volumes.”
The emphasis of EGT’s professional approach in the country will be the maximisation of products’ performance. The company plans to install 300 gaming machines in the next 2-3 month in some of the best locations in the market and EGT expectations are for high overall results of its portfolio. “Unfortunately the COVID-19 crisis hit all industries, gaming included, slowing down our plans a bit,” added Grigorov. “In Czech Republic the most common call during the state of emergency was “Together we will manage”. Now the casino business is slowly returning to normality, so hopefully we will be able to say soon that we did manage together. So we will measure the success of our local office with the number of satisfied customers. This will be my priority and the mission of our team.”
