US – APEX making waves in Indian Gaming marketBy Phil - 12 April 2019
APEX gaming is now making a major impact in the Indian Gaming market in America where it took its ‘Taking gaming to the next level’ ethos to NIGA, the premiere North American Indian Gaming show that took place between April 1 to 4 in San Diego, USA.
Two major APEX innovations stole the show in San Diego: Clover Link Games and the iDROPs.
Clover Link is the jackpot solution from APEX gaming that is available in a great variety of designs and slot machines. Clover Link has become either the most popular or one of the most popular games in practically all the locations where it has been installed. Four designs are available: the Big Island, Round Edition and Wall Edition and the Slim Edition. All four are distinctly different in design. All versions are available in a range of different slots, including the 43” Pinnacle Premium Curved, the Pinnacle Black Series with two 24” monitors or the Pinnacle Premium Curved with three 27” monitors.
The iDROPs is the perfect cash management system for live gaming tables. True to the company philosophy to take gaming to the next level, the iDROPs brings amazing benefits: it is extremely quick, extremely secure, and reads banknotes/tickets at an amazing rate of up to 6 per second and also has an escrow function of up to 30 notes/tickets. Dealers can place up to 250 bills and tickets into the batch feeder and they are then fed individually into the iDROPs. For player cards, these are simply entered into the iDROPs and the chosen value is taken off the card and the dealer can then hand out the chips. When cashing out the chips, the amount is then credited to the card. The cashbox is extremely large and can hold up to 10,000 bills/tickets.
APOGEE Gaming is the master distributor for APEX gaming in North America. Owner and CEO JL Drapeau has driven sales strongly and was pleased to introduce a new colleague to further support that sales drive. Thus, the NIGA was the perfect opportunity to introduce Michael Strader. Mr. Strader has assumed the responsibility as Regional West USA Business Development and Sales Director. “We are proud to have Michael on board. We have so many opportunities. His knowledge of the industry and his professional attitude alongside his proven sales success makes him the ideal addition to our team”, commented Mr. Drapeau.
“The NIGA was an extremely successful show for us. We had so many visitors coming to see us having heard of the difference we have made to player excitement and operator revenues at the casinos we are already installed in”, enthused Mr. Kubilay Özer, Global Sales Director for APEX gaming. “We’re on a steep growth path here”, Mr. Özer continued.
