Interview of Mario Trayanski, Director - EGT Peru, for Soloazar
What products did you showcase at this edition of Peru Gaming Show?
Our product line-up at PGS this year included over 40 machines from 8 different models. We brought the attention to our Premier Curved series with 42-inch displays and bountiful game mixes from Collection series – Green, Orange and Fruits, featuring also the jackpot systems Fu Gui Rong Hua and 4 Happy Hits (both compatible with the curved slot models). The Super Premier slant top machine was introduced for a first time in Latin America and having in mind the interest it gained, I expect it soon to unleash its full sales potential locally.
How do you see the show this year?
Peru Gaming Show had good attendance and many participants had larger booths than last year, stating their intentions to be even more active on the local market. It is a good sign that the show is increasing its reputation, I am very pleased with the event myself. Of course the mentioned progress poses also some traditional questions related to the limited space of the exhibition hall and the growing interest for additional booth areas on the venue, but I am positive that the organizers will be keen on finding a solution.
What are the company's expectations for this PGS edition?
Showcasing so many new product developments, we also announced that all of them are homologated, ready to be installed and enjoyed by the players. Considering the remarkable market results we reached for the last 6 months, I expect the recent models to even double them till the end of the year.
How important is Peru Gaming Show for the company?
We are relatively new in Peru, so each event that brings together the majority of key players in the local gaming industry is important to us. PGS is effective in creating opportunities for business contacts in a span of only 12 hours. Therefore we appreciate the show and will continue our partnership in future.
How do you see the regional market?
The gaming market in Peru is among the largest, most stable and best regulated in Latin America. Thanks to the efforts of Mr. Manuel San Román Benavente and his professional team it has a well-defined and transparent legal framework. This creates comfort for the companies in our industry and a positive business environment.
Technology poses a new type of player, a new generation. How does the company adapt to the new players?
The millennials, or the new generation of players, are entirely oriented to the modern technologies. This is why we founded EGT Interactive – an online gaming supplier, that partners with some of the most renowned operators in the world. This is how our customers may experience the pleasure of our well established land-based games in a new, exciting way. EGT Interactive constantly invests in its advancement and its rich gaming library is entirely tuned to suit the taste of the online-oriented players.
How do you see the evolution of the Peruvian market in terms of new technologies?
When I first visited Peru in 2014 I was impressed to find out that all latest developments in the industry were already embraced by the local operators. The market is forward looking to the new technologies. It is at pace with the fast tempo of development of the regions outside Latin America. Now it encounters the online gaming as a modern alternative and I am confident that the administration will again manage to regulate it in a brilliant way.
Peru is a pioneer in regulation. Do you think that other countries in the region should follow suit?
I see no reason good examples not to be followed.
Two casinos in Miami, Florida – Casino Miami and Magic City Casino, proud of having some of the widest and most diverse slot machine portfolios for the local players, welcomed the 4 Happy Hits jackpot system and the Premier Curved cabinets of Euro Games Technology. Reel Games, Inc., the highly respected in the industry partner of EGT for the U.S., announced the launch of both models in the market, installing the first 12 cabinets, and inking several other deliveries for the next weeks in more facilities.
„Casino Miami and Magic City Casino are perfect for the North American start of these new products. Now we can gauge the local performance of our latest and greatest slot machine and the first generation of the Multi-Hits 1 jackpot system,“ commented Sean Smith, president of Reel Games, Inc.
Stephen Blank, Jr., general manager of Casino Miami, shared that they had been anticipating both models from Reel Games: “The Curved cabinet is a great design with the 42-inch monitor and 47-inch LCD toppers. The multi-level mystery and linked progressive jackpots of 4 Happy Hits will definitely be player pleasers!” Mr. Blank added that he had also seen a glimpse of several other new products Reel Games plans to bring into the U.S. market and that he was looking forward to having them all on their floor in the near future.
Magic City Casino is also confident that 4 Happy Hits and Premier Curved of EGT would be a hit with their players in Miami. “We first viewed them during the G2E show in Las Vegas and were pleasantly surprised. The new Asian themed Fu Gui Rong Hua jackpot system will also soon be at our The Casino@Dania Beach,” commented Shawn Veerasammy, slot director of Magic City Casino and asst. general manager of their sister property The Casino@Dania Beach.
The installed 4 Happy Hits system includes two jackpots – a 4 level, mystery, local area or standalone area progressive and a linked, symbol driven progressive. Included is an ultimate selection of bet patterns, base game percentages and progressive contributions for each operator’s individual requirements. Its gaming mix Multi Hits 1 of four titles and the new P-42V St Curved cabinet – not only elegant, but also powered by the high performing Exciter III platform, are already popular in many countries around the world. Their U.S. market debut is expected to bring more appreciation to the models, adding also the high satisfaction of local operators and players alike.
In October, 2016, with a press release Novomatic AG informed that it is initiating court proceedings against Euro Games Technology Ltd. based in Sofia and its German sales partner D-Systems GmbH at the District Court of Berlin. Novomatic took the view that some games of Euro Games Technology Ltd. systematically and unfairly use some essential elements of its games. Immediately following the oral hearing on May 9, 2017, the District Court of Berlin dismissed Novomatic AG's claim for injunctive relief, information and damages. Within the reasons given for the judgement the District Court of Berlin outlined that claims of Novomatic may neither be based on trademark law nor on competition law. The District Court of Berlin did not recognize an illegitimate use of essential game elements.
Vladimir Dokov, CEO of EGT, commented: „We welcome the decision of the District Court of Berlin. We are confident in our products’ innovativeness as they are entirely created by our R&D department that focuses on current and modern technologies. We will continue to expand our market position on the basis of our own developments and advanced know-how."
The classy Sun Casino saves the dates of 23 and 24 June for something spectacular in the gaming calendar of Monte Carlo. An electrifying show, breathtaking surprises and exclusive entertainment with the EGT machines will juice up the luxurious and stylish surrounding of its halls during a VIP event. Regular and first-time visitors, local and foreign players will be intrigued with a quest for numerous prizes and a tombola, running in the course of each of the evenings.
Sun Casino decided to arrange the special event after the obvious success of 56 EGT machines, installed several months ago on its floor. It will also celebrate the partnership of its proprietor SBM (Societe de Bains de Mer) with the Bulgarian manufacturer. “The best performing cabinets on the floor deserve their starry moment,” explained Alain Assenza, casino manager of Sun Casino. “We wanted to be VIP felt also to correspond to the effective cooperation between our two companies that we intend to keep fruitful, reaching even better results and higher success.”
The EGT product range that makes the day of most of the players at Sun Casino includes the P-27/27 St Slim, P-27/32H St, P-42V Up and St Curved slot models, the jackpot systems Fu Gui Rong Hua and 4 Happy Hits and the Super Premier cabinet. “Being the best performer in a premium establishment as Sun Casino in a country of first-rate gaming activity as Monaco, is certainly something to be proud of,” commented Borislav Prokopiev, regional sales manager of EGT for France, Monaco and Belgium. “We have been competing with the high achievers on the market and yet it is our machines that are reported to increase the number of returning players. It is not only about brand awareness, it is about the mere feeling of enjoyment when activating an EGT game, teamed with the pleasure of being in a place with top services.”
The new Super Premier 75 with its avant-garde 75-inch display will be the next EGT addition to Sun Casino’s gaming portfolio. Six cabinets of the model are already on their way and their delivery will mark the first installation worldwide of the product – another milestone in SBM’s and EGT’s relationship.
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.
Euro Games Technology will greet again the Spanish gaming society on 13 and 14 June at ExpoJoc 2017 (Expo Congreso de Juego) in Valencia. At its booth A11 the manufacturer of one of the most gratifying gaming portfolios in the industry will surround the visitors with a special set of selected machines.
“We are looking forward to be back in Valencia with a vast display of slot, multiplayer and interactive products,” commented Gergana Chelebieva, director of EGT Spain. “Our Super Premier cabinet with its elegant frame and compelling 42-inches curved displays, beaming one of a style game graphics, and the Premier Curved models, presented with the joyful 4 Happy Hits jackpot system are truly worth the attention of the visitors. The Chinese themed Fu Gui Rong Hua while bringing the spirit of another culture in the pursuit of luck, introduces a lot of exciting features for the players, including the option to choose between its 4 jackpot levels.”
Alongside the hottest models in EGT’s portfolio on display will also be the proven slot performers - P-27/32H St, P-27/27 St and P-27/27 St Slim, endeared by the users for their modern technology and multitude of different games, gathered in the Premier (Premier Multi-4, 5 and 6 and Fruits) and Collection Series (Red, Orange, Green and Fruits Collection 2) mixes. The attractive P-24/32V Up cabinet will brighten up with the full of adventure jackpot Egypt Quest.

Among them the P-24/24 Up AWP cabinet is based on the highly efficient Exciter III platform, has a 24-inched touch screen display and will present to the Spanish players the exclusive game mix Premier Multi-5 AWP of 45 different themed titles.
Again for the AWP gaming sector will be the automated roulette Premier R6 at the booth, having 6 gaming places, each equipped with a 23-inch widescreen LCD-TFT touch monitor. The versatile STORK terminal, famous for its ability to connect to up to six automated or live roulette wheels and featuring also a vast array of slot games is the other product, selected to present the multiplayer division of the company. EGT Interactive will also unfold its presentation of online-based slot games, video pokers, automated roulette wheels with in-screen video streaming, and keno.
Commenting on the event Mrs. Chelebieva added: “ExpoJoc is an appropriate occasion to share about our good performance in Spain. We are already working with most of the local casino operators. I am confident that EGT’s latest installations of P-27/27 St Slim at the famous Casino de Barcelona and of P-24/24 Up at Casino Torrelodones and the planned forthcoming deliveries of Premier Series multigames and of our jackpot system Fu Gui Rong Hua within the communities of Andalusia, Canary Islands and Baleares will only be the beginning of a long success story of EGT in Spain.”
Interview of Silviya Marinova, Director - EGT Colombia, for Yogonet
The big news for FADJA 2017 was its new venue. What were the benefits of the relocation? How would you assess the show on the overall? How would you rank the visitor traffic? And what about the organization? To what extent were you able to meet your goals?
The relocation of this year’s FADJA was a challenge for us. However, the show in general and our booth in particular were well visited. We presented some of our highly potential products on the market – the Premier Curved cabinets and the jackpot systems 3 Happy Hits, Diamond Life and Lady’s Cards, the multiplayer division’s Luxury roulette touch table, the STORK terminal, and multitude different multigames, including the EGT Interactive online-based titles. We were able to meet with many new operators, so our overall estimate of the exhibition is that it was successful for us.
How was this past year, from FADJA 2016 to date for the Colombian gaming industry? What are the expectations for the near term following your participation in the trade show?
The industry is growing at a high pace and new additions to the gaming floors are at a high demand, encouraging the operators to add more diversity to their equipment. EGT has a lot to offer in this respect, presenting nonparallel products on the market, attracting the attention of the connoisseurs.
Several major casino operators such as Chile’s Sun Dreams are eyeing Colombia for new casino. What are the opportunities present there for you?
Some of the major local operators are already in contact with us and we are currently in a process of installing our products on their floors. The reputation we have established as a manufacturer and a partner and our proven products are among the key factors EGT to be considered as a reliable supplier for the gaming industry in Colombia.
Do you reckon the investigation of former officials of Coljuegos for irregularities in casino contracts will have an impact on the industry?
The measures, undertaken by Coljuegos together with the police resulted in numerous arrests and confiscations of illegal machines. The fight against the gray sector will certainly affect our industry in a positive way.
Euro Games Technology will raise the curtains on a classy display of machines at its booth 55 at this year’s Peru Gaming Show. Slot cabinets, jackpot systems, multigame mixes of land-based and interactive games will be part of company’s gaming stage, ready to reveal an exclusive world of entertainment and high-end technology.
“The market in Peru is getting more and more inclined to thematic based jackpots,” noted Mario Trayanski, director of EGT Peru. “Our Chinese-styled Fu Gui Rong Hua product, inspired by an ancient eponymous charm for glory, splendor, riches and prestige and Egypt Quest that takes the players into the realm of adventure are our distinct way to meet these requirements. Both are 4-level progressive systems, housed in the thematically designed P-27/42V St cabinets, and will be shown at our booth, together with the progressive mystery 4 Happy Hits and Lady’s Cards jackpots and the brand new and highly flexible Premium Link, that can be installed on all EGT slot machines.”

They represent the newest generation of company’s slot developments, incorporating the concepts of contemporary industrial design, having curved displays, flawless edge-to-edge front glass surface and offering much more convenience for the users. The 42-inch vertical touch-screen display of P-42V St allows larger space for the media graphics and Super Premier’s two 42-inch landscape monitors enhance the gaming experience, creating the sense of seclusion of the surroundings for the players.
The booth’s special slot display will also include the successful worldwide P-24/24 Up, P-27/27 St, P-27/27 St Slim and P-27/32H St models, as well as a vast gaming portfolio of the mixes Premier Multi-6, 5, 4 and 3, the Orange, Green and Red Collection libraries, the Fruits Collection 2 and the Green General mix, debuting in Peru with its 45 games, 12 of which with fruit thematic.
“EGT’s products have proved their magnetism on the players for just a year. Only for the previous 6 months we have installed over 500 machines in the country, 80% of which in the capital Lima. While our land-based products are becoming a hit, we don’t underestimate the growing market potential of the interactive niche in this part of the world and I invite all PGS visitors to get acquainted with our desktop and mobile games, which are a perfect internet adapted replica of our successful slot video titles,” added Mr. Trayanski.
Over 70 gaming stations will show all aspects of the brilliant gaming by Euro Games Technology at its booth A5 during the 2017 edition of Belgrade Future Gaming exhibition. After years of upscaling sales in Serbia the company returns with its own display at the event and on 30 and 31 May the visitors will be welcomed with a complete range of slot, multiplayer, interactive and casino management solutions.
“I can proudly say that our portfolio is considered one of the best on the local market,” shared Aleksandar Kliska, general director of EGT Serbia. “The P-24/24 Up slot cabinet is almost always part of our contracts with the partners for its best price-quality ratio, most preferred dimensions in its niche and wide spectrum of multigame mixes. To all this we are also famous for our 24/7 support, that has always been part of our services.”
Next to the P-24/24 Up at the booth of EGT will also be the slot models P-27/27 St and St Slim, P-24/32V Up and P-27/32H St, equipped with high-rated multigames – the Orange, Green and Red Collection, as well as the Fruits Collection 2 and Premier Multi-4, 5, 6 and Fruits.
The Super Premier cabinet of the company will also aim to be a major hit at the show with its two 42-inch landscape curved monitors, integrated multimedia chair and edge-to-edge glass design – an artful conception to be found also in the P-42V Up and St Curved models, that will accommodate the exciting four-level mystery progressive jackpot system 4 Happy Hits.

It includes poker, keno and blackjack and is able to connect the player to up to six different roulette wheels,” – explained Mr. Kliska. „The STORK terminal and the Vega R6 automated roulette are already known to the local audience, but we certainly need them at our booth to complete our multiplayer display in a most presentable way.”
Two more product divisions of EGT will also greet their Serbian fans at the show. EGT Interactive keeps gaining speed in both portfolio increase and market development and the Spider CMS is further widening the casino management horizons with its Cage and TITO modules, allowing control over all cash operations and providing the operators with detailed transaction history and real-time balance level.
According to Mr. Kliska EGT has been one of the most promising suppliers in the gaming industry in Serbia. The company is on its path to reach a 35% local market share and Belgrade Future Gaming Show is seen as one of the main instruments on the way.
Soon after its first major installation in Mexico Euro Games Technology kept on gaining ground in the country, delivering 130 slot cabinets of its P-27/27 St Slim models to the largest local casino operator – Codere, famous for its impeccable services and vast gaming portfolio of over 20,000 machines.
The new installation marks the beginning of a larger one of 400 machines in total that will include different Codere’s properties in Mexico and will be completed till the end of 2017. The slot cabinet P-27/27 St Slim will be the prevailing model in all following deliveries for its latest EGT platform Exciter III and the Orange and Green Collection multigame mixes, each containing 48 diverse and fascinating gaming titles. Another EGT product to be introduced in all Codere’s players will be the recently developed but fast establishing itself P-42V Curved St cabinet, the striking Super Premier, preferred for its two 42-inch curved monitors and first-rate design, and the top product of the multiplayer division of EGT – the touch-screen roulette table of Luxury Series.
Commenting on the current and forthcoming installations at the operator, Nadia Popova, director of EGT Central America and Mexico, remembered also the beginning of the partnership with Codere: “Our first deal was actually concluded in Panama in 2011 and was for our bestselling slot model – the P-24/24 Up cabinet. It soon outperformed many rival products, gaining speed within the local gaming audience. So we extended further our collaboration to Colombia and Mexico – markets of strategical importance to our company.”
Codere’s management expressed its satisfaction to introduce EGT’s products into their gaming halls in Mexico, pointing that it has been a long-term project soon to include all their venues across the country.
Two products of Euro Games Technology are gaining ground in France, speeding up the plans of the company to develop further on the local market. Over 30 cabinets of the strikingly elegant Super Premier slot model have already encaptivated the players with their Red, Green, Orange and Fruits Collection multigames in 13 casinos around the country. The Chinese-themed four-level progressive jackpot system Fu Gui Rong Hua has also began bringing glory, splendor, riches and prestige to the visitors of two of the most respectful gaming establishments in France - Casino Barrière de Blotzheim, owned by Groupe Lucien Barrière, and Casino Villers-sur-Mer, a property of Groupe Tranchant. The product is soon to be expected in Arzon Casino of the JOA group and other establishments as well.
While Super Premier is often surrounded by queuing players for its unmatched comfort and depth-enhanced gaming experience, having their roots in the 42-inch curved screen, the modern design concept and integrated multimedia chair, Fu Gui Rong Hua greets its fans with cheerful animations, the Eternal Lotus and Empress Gold games and the thrill of the rivalry for the jackpot, housed in the ergonomic Р-27/42V St and P-42V St Curved cabinets. Both products are based on the most advanced Exciter III platform of EGT.
“All these features, backed up with our highly competitive quality-price ratio, made our offer difficult to be turned down by the local operators,” explained Borislav Prokopiev, EGT’s sales manager for France, Monaco and Belgium. “We have had so far numerous highly successful installations in France that have established the image of EGT as one of the most innovative and appreciated manufacturers in the local gaming industry. Adding to this overall opinion was also our recent delivery of the newest models of the company, including Super Premier and Fu Gui Rong Hua, at Sun Casino, Monaco, that made a splash in the players circles.”
Just for several years EGT has presented all its products to the gaming audience in the country. Their results have paved the way for further partnerships. Soon after its first installation Super Premier has become a hit in the country, being within the top 5 performing cabinets. Many new contracts for the model have been inked to be executed within the next month. Fu Gui Rong Hua begins its local journey with 12 delivered cabinets, that has also been warmly welcomed by the players. The interest to the jackpot system is constantly growing. According to Mr. Prokopiev the year so far is shaping to be even more successful than 2016, when the company reached 100% local sales growth. The next 6 months will definitely be busy for EGT not only in France, but also in Belgium in regards to upcoming new installations.
“We’re expecting FADJA Colombia 2017 to continue our success from the 2016’s event,” said Silviya Marinova, director of Euro Games Technology’s office in Colombia, about the company’s participation in this year’s edition of the exhibition. The top selling slot, multiplayer and interactive products of the Bulgarian manufacturer will be on display on 26 and 27 April at EGT’s booth 15.

EGT Interactive will add another portion of attractiveness to the company’s booth with its rich portfolio of games, suitable for both desktop and mobile devices.
Commenting on the impressive market results of EGT’s office in Colombia, Silviya Marinova shared: “Our products have gained ground locally for a very short span of time. We already have a strong presence in the gaming establishments of Codere, made several installations in Verano casinos with more to come in Cirsa’s and have also established strong connections with the smaller operators in the country. All this we achieved for less than a year.” Currently EGT’s machines are available in over 35 casinos in Colombia and the local launch of the STORK terminal and company’s most successful jackpot systems is on its way. “FADJA is a central and long-awaited event for the domestic gaming industry and our partners in the country are expecting to meet us there. We are also eager to introduce our special selection of key product developments,” concluded Mrs. Marinova.
