Merkur Gaming: Viva Malaga

MALAGA/LÜBBECKE. The Spanish spring exhibition “Andalusian Gaming and Gambling Trade Show“ in Malaga/Spain from 28 to 30 March 2007 was again a triumph for MERKUR GAMING. The successful AWP machines made by Gauselmann were in great demand at the stand of the longstanding partner Sente S.A.. Visitors were especially interested in ‘Cashline Platino’, ‘Magic Sphinx’, and ‘Volcano Magic’ – machines based on the new appealing multicolor technology. Their very special light effects contribute to increasing attention in arcades and in addition help to save operating costs thanks to their lower energy consumption. A powerful argument, which in the end convinced many operators.

The new jackpot systems ‘Multi Jackpot’ and ‘Treasure Mania’ were the focus of attention of the visitors. The ‘Multi Jackpot’ with its three different levels creates excitement in every amusement arcade. The ‘Treasure Mania’ jackpot is a mystery jackpot, also with cutting-edge LED-technology and TFT-screen. The innovative PC-technology enables operators to additionally show advertisements on the screen.

MERKUR GAMING established many promising contacts concerning the touch-screen machine ‘Merkur Trendy’ at its own stand, where the ‘Blue Motion’ version with 19“ TFT-monitor and illuminated cabinet was on exhibit.

The demand for the popular MERKUR GAMING simulators that were specifically developed for the computer kids generation was continuously high at the stand of the partner MGA. Visitors were mainly enthusiastic about the new Disney licensed Kiddie Rides ‘Princess Dream’ and ‘Lightning McQueen’.

Under the umbrella of Merkur International MERKUR GAMING is responsible for the Europe-wide sales of the internationally active Gauselmann Group. The business volume totaled EUR 1.33 billion (2005: EUR 1.003 billion) with aggregated consolidated revenues of the three business units rising over EUR 1 billion.
