Interview of Mario Trayanski, Director - EGT Peru, for Yogonet
What can you tell us about the products you're planning to unleash at Perú Gaming Show? Why is this trade show a good fit for EGT?
Peru Gaming Show is certainly an effective venue for networking and business negotiations. Just for several days we are able to get in contact with so many key participants in the industry. At this year’s edition of the event we have prepared numerous slot products, emphasizing on our Premier Curved cabinets. We will also demonstrate the full collection of gaming mixes from the Premier, Collection and General series. Our jackpot systems, based on different platforms and integrated with various machines, as well as the online-based games, developed by EGT Interactive will complete our display.
How are you planning to captivate Peruvian casino operators and players alike?
EGT’s products are well known globally. In Latin America and Peru in particular we are progressing fast with many installations most of them concluded within the last 6 months. Currently we have delivered over 500 machines, 80% of them operating on the territory of Lima. Our Premier cabinets establish themselves as very efficient and exceeding even the highest expectations. In this context our team has to focus mainly on meeting the market requirements, keeping the impeccable quality of our products and providing a professional technical support.
EGT decided to open a local office about a year ago. How would you assess its performance?
We opened our office in Peru just recently – in December last year, but, as I mentioned, we have so far achieved remarkable results on the market which is another evidence for the strengths of EGT’s products. Our strategy proved successful in finding reliable local partners and our team, though not numerous, is effective in servicing the customers in the most appropriate way.
How do you feel Andean gambling markets will evolve in terms of player trends and technology impacts?
Nowadays the market in Peru is getting more and more inclined to thematic based jackpots. This is why I am confident that our jackpot systems Egypt Quest and the Chinese-styled Fu Gui Rong Hua will be accepted enthusiastically from the audience. At the same time we don’t underestimate the growing market potential of the interactive niche in this part of the world, moreover our desktop and mobile games are perfect internet adapted replicas of EGT’s successful globally slot video titles.
