EGT enters the Slovak market with its VLT machines
Feb 15, 2016
Euro Games Technology signed a distribution agreement with the Slovak operator Top Game – a company with large experience and established image in the gaming sector in the country, which will now be undertaking the sales of EGT VLT products on the local market. The partnership was announced and celebrated at a vibrant party where the VLT products of EGT were shown for a first time in Slovakia – the slot cabinets P-24/24 Up and P-24/24 St Slim with dual-sided Rainbow jackpot panel and a VEGA jackpot controller. For a maximum performance they were equipped with the specially created multigame mixes Red Game VLT and Blue Game VLT, each containing 20 different games.
„It is hard to penetrate the gaming market of Slovakia,” said Csaba Pardi, sales manager of Demar KFT, a distributor of EGT for Hungary, Austria, Poland and Sweden. “At present there are 20,000 gaming machines installed in the country and their number cannot be raised because of the restriction for new licenses. This remarkably intensifies the competition between the gaming equipment manufacturers that have to rely entirely on the high quality and performance of their products. These are the only arguments that could persuade the operators that it is in their interest to change their not so efficient machines with the models of EGT. It is also substantial, of course, to find the appropriate partner to present your products in an apt way and to cooperate for their initial launch on the local gaming floors. We believe that Top Game is the right choice for us in this regard.”
Soon after the official debut of EGT’s VLT machines, that raised an enormous interest among the local gaming elite, in December, 2015 took place the first installation of six cabinets P-24/24 Up and four P-24/24 St Slim in Cezar Club, Bratislava. At present over 130 machines of the company have entered different gaming establishments in Slovakia. EGT will continue diversifying its products for the local market, planning to present its whole portfolio in near future.
