Positive trends for MERKUR GAMING in Italy
Espelkamp/Lübbecke. Alberto Stolfi, owner of Merkur Gaming’s trading partner “International Games Trade“ (IGT) from San Marino, was very satisfied with the entertainment machine trade show ProGameShow that took place in Bologna (Italy) from 12 to 14 September.
“Customers just loved and bought the Merkur Gaming reel machines and currently we are the only company continuously developing new reel machines for the Italian market.” Therefore, also CSO of Merkur Gaming, Axel F. Pawlas, was extremely satisfied with the trend and resulting sales volume.
Not only the successful reel machines ‘Lucky Cash’, ‘Sphinx Gold’ and ‘Dicemaster’ but also the innovations ’Sphinx Diamante’ and ‘Lucky Cash Diamante’, both with state of the art LED technology, were on display.
Especially the machines with modern LED technologies were in the focus of the customers in Italy. The innovative multicolor technology creates unique and diverse light effects and thus attracts more attention from the players. But the technology is also economically convincing because of cost economies thanks to lower power consumption, long life of the diodes and the lower maintenance effort that goes along with it.
For the MERKUR GAMING customers it proved once more that now is the right time to invest in new Merkur machines. MERKUR GAMING is also optimally prepared for pending legal amendments. “When required, the relevant conversion kits are being made available immediately”, confirmed Merkur Gamings CSO.
