Moscow/Warsaw/Prague/Lübbecke. With their concept of “One stop shopping“ MERKUR GAMING had another successful presentation at this year’s “EELEX“ from September 27 to 29 in Moscow. “In the Russian capital we were once again able to convince our customers of the most current products of our comprehensive portfolio, ranging from video slot machines to touch-screen device and Kiddie Rides,“ says Axel F. Pawlas, CSO MERKUR GAMING.

This time the special center of attention was the Multilevel Jackpot “Russian Star“ and the matching new video-based AWP machines, which captivated the visitors with their different gaming systems and variety of features. In particular machines such as “Night Fever“ and “Siberian Treasure“ that have been specifically developed for this market, met with great interest. “Night Fever“ boasts numerous bonus games, from the so called “Cocktail Bar Bonus“ to the “Roulette Bonus“ with free games. Last but not least the players love the detailed graphic animations on the flat screens.

MERKUR GAMING was present at the traditional autumn trade show “Forbes“ in Prague from October 18 to 19 and exhibited the new video-based AWP machines, the two single games “Cash Fruits“ and “Triple Chance“ as well as the brand new multigame “Gold Collection” at the stand of the Czech partner Synot. In addition, the three machines proved their performance in daily use. David Mixa from Synot stated: “The video-based AWP products offer all the features that the market asks for. This was confirmed in numerous customer interviews at the trade show.“

And Pavel Michalcio, CSO Synot, also praises the excellent and very professional cooperation with the Gauselmann Group: “Together we have new product developments in the pipeline even today, so that we are well prepared for the future and for our customers we look optimistically forward to the year 2007.“

MERKUR GAMING also presented a selection of their comprehensive product portfolio “made by Gauselmann“ at the “SUPEREXPO” in Warsaw from October 19 to 21. In addition the new touch-screen “Merkur Trendy – No Limit“ received the award „most innovative product of the trade show” in Poland.

The video-based machines “Royal Castle“ as well as the multigame „Casino Poker“ – available with upright cabinet or casino cabinet – that were specifically developed for the Polish market met with great interest of the visitors. In practice, both systems are already well established thanks to their excellent gaming receipts. The country-specific offer was completed by the mechanical reel machine “Hot Cash.“

One of the attractions at all three trade shows was the amusement machine “Merkur Trendy.“ “Merkur Trendy“ is a touch-screen device that enthuses with almost 70 games in the fields of cards, quizzes, puzzles, and skills.
