Euro Games Technology’s products have been chosen by the biggest operator in Hungary; Las Vegas Casino Group, who owns the exclusive rights for Budapest with licenses for five casinos.
After the 2012 ban on the street slot machines and the doubling of casino licenses, the gaming industry in the country marked one of the most remarkable market growths in Europe. More than 100,000 players are expected to visit the newly opened Corvin Sétány, Atlantis, Sofitel Budapest, Atrium EuroCenter. In March, the fifth casino owned by Tropicana, will be also up and running.
147 slot machines and 4 roulettes, provided by EGT, became the centerpiece of the brand new casinos, and offered tons of ways of entertainment. The Premier Series P-24/24 Up comprises 98 of the cabinets, featuring multigame mixes Multi-3 and Multi-4. There are also 45 Vega Vision+ slant top and upright machines with game libraries Multi-2 and Multi-4. The progressive jackpot system Cat 4 Cash comes as a 4-cabinet configuration and the four Vega Series R8 automated roulettes provide 8 gaming places each.
“With this installation EGT has reached a 22 per cent market share in Budapest,” commented Csaba Pardi, EGT Sales Manager for Hungary, Austria, Poland, and Sweden. “Our success stems from the fact that the operator is familiar with the Vega Vision+ cabinets and has had a positive experience with our products and services. This time most of the machines are making their first appearance in the country, namely the Premier Series cabinets and the Cat 4 Cash jackpot system, and expectations are great. The installation was flawless, but only time will let our products prove their potential and reliability.”
EGT has prepared 19 more P-24/24 Up machines, 12 Vega Vision+ slant top cabinets, and one Vega Series R8 roulette for the upcoming opening of the investor’s fifth casino. “We hope that our partnership with Las Vegas Casino Group will continue to be mutually beneficial. It is no secret that, in the past few years, EGT expanded its portfolio considerably, and that was clearly noticed by our Hungarian partner,” added Mr. Pardi. “Our plan is to provide new games to the already installed products, and, possibly, to add new models to the existing ones.”
