VLT  futures

 

Apex Gaming is the latest company to join the VLT market in the Czech Republic.  The Austria-based company has acquired a VLT license having completed the testing of its in-house VLT system.

  Apex showed the first fully-operational unit on its stand at the World of Entertainment show in Prague, featuring a high-security wireless LAN network connectivity.  Apex expects to roll out its first VLTs into the Czech market in June / July this year.  The company has already had a great success with its most recent games for Czech, having sold over 900 units into the market in just three months.  These games will be ported over to the VLT unit, ensuring that the terminals get a flying start in a VLT market that has been starved of decent quality games.  “We have the games the market wants.

Everyone is operating basically the same equipment, the key point of difference is the games,” said Apex Gaming’s Johannes Weissengruber.  “VLTs are the perfect way to operate machines, but the biggest step is to get good quality games running on the platform.  As a games creator with a hoist of successful games in Czech, we are confident that VLTs will add additional revenue streams to our business.”  Apex has also released details that a further five games are to be added to its Multi-Magic multi-game platform.  “Multi-Magic has risen to the top of our games portfolio,” stated Mr.  Weissengruber,  “The market has changed again, with more multi-games demanded by operators above the need for single games.  It’s much harder to sell single games right now.  Our focus is now upon video multi-games and VLTs.”
