NOVOMATIC: Austrian highlights at BEGE Expo 2019
Amidst two awards won on the occasion of the event and a broad portfolio of Winning Technology presented within a new stand design, the key highlight for NOVOMATIC at the recent Balkan Entertainment & Gaming Expo (BEGE Expo) 2019 was the great customer interest and excellent footfall at this major gaming event for the region. The local subsidiaries made sure to welcome all visitors and guests in true Austrian style.
At the 12th edition of BEGE Expo, the NOVOMATIC stand welcomed show visitors with a great variety of market-specific offers presented in the most popular cabinets like the PANTHERA™ series, the V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinets and the V.I.P. Eagle™ I 3.32 – with Winning Technology to suit player preferences as well as operators' requirements and economic considerations.
Regional best-sellers have traditionally been multi-game mixes comprising the most popular NOVOMATIC video slot classics – and a variety of these were on display at BEGE: The Legend Gaminator® 1T multi-game edition with 43 legendary titles, Superia Games Premium Mix 2 with 43 games, NOVO LINE™ lnteractive Edition X1 with 30 titles, NOVO LINE™ lnteractive Concurve Edition 4 comprising five games for single screen curve cabinets and lmpera Line™ HD Edition 7 boasting 53 titles. This last powerful package of performers was also the winner of the show organizer's "BEGE EXPO Award" in the "Game Content" category, which the local team was honoured to receive next to an honorary award for the long-term support of the show. Additionally, the lmpera Line™ HD Edition 7 game mix demonstrated the integration of slot and ETG offerings with a live link to a LOTUS ROULETTE™ Pro ETG Roulette installation with six player stations.
Game-synchronized XL LED effects, two 32" HD screens as well as a tilted slant top base featuring a TouchDeck™ player interface are the key features of the V.I.P. Eagle™ I 3.32, which combines all the advantages of a slant top with the high visibility of a stylish upright cabinet. Operators clearly recognized the outstanding potential of this machine as an attractive spotlight on the casino floor. The Lucky Lady character certainly needs no introduction in the international gaming industry – and at BEGE, visitors were delighted to encounter her casting Wild Spells in a game concept that premiered in the region: Lucky Lady's Wild Spell™.
Milos Pejic, NOVOMATIC Regional Manager SEE Gaming Operations, said: “With this year's exhibition stand concept, we have deviated from traditional show concepts and instead brought a touch of Vienna to Sofia. We are very grateful for the excellent customer feedback we received at the show, and the great interest in our portfolio of products and solutions for the Balkan markets. Especially the new V.I.P. Eagle™ I 3.32 cabinet hits a note with the operators of the region and also the Lucky Lady's Wild Spell™ game title ranges high among the visitors' favourites.”
