We have received on the Casino Life & Business Magazine’s address, as usual the Press Release from Novomatic Group of Companies after its presence to the Spanish gaming show Fer Interazar, from Madrid.
We present the entire Press Release:
With a bigger booth and in a more prominent position than in previous years Novomatic’s participation at the Fer Interazar 2013 gaming show set the stage for a superb dedicated product display for the Spanish regions – a presence that mirrored the group’s growing market share in this discerning and sophisticated sector.
More than 1,000 NOVO LINE™ Salon machines have been installed, with many of the country’s major operators, in gaming arcades over the course of the past 12 months.
The success of these products clearly demonstrates their growing popularity and strong performance in operation.
With its latest innovative product launches Novomatic Gaming Spain clearly has its finger on the pulse of what the Spanish market needs … and wants.
At Fer Interazar’s booth number C12 Spanish operators had the opportunity to try, test and evaluate the latest additions to this varied choice of highly market specific products for the diverse regional segments and their particular requirements.
Their collective comment was: Maravilloso.
Category B Products
The product presentation comprised an extended product range for the Spanish B-market (arcades, Bingo operations and bars) as well as for the casino segment. Already well-established in the category-B segment is the NOVO LINE™ Salón II that now offers a total of three multi-game mix versions with 9 games each. They are available in the NOVO LINE™ Salón upright and in the NOVO LINE™ Club slant top cabinet as well as in the NOVO LINE™ II Salón MP multiplayer set-up (from 2 to 8 positions depending on the region), allowing for significant tax advantages for the operator.
The category-B machine NOVO STAR™ employs the internationally best-selling Gaminator® cabinet and includes five games. This special arcade machine was designed for those autonomous regions in Spain where this type of machine is allowed: the Basque Country, the Balearic Islands and Catalonia. Columbus™, Fruits & Royals™, Just Jewels™, Lord of the Ocean™ and Secrets of Egypt™ amount to a well-balanced mix of themes for thrilling gaming entertainment.
The NOVO LINE™ II Bar multi-game offering provides an ideal package for smaller sized bar operations, comprising a perfect blend of Novomatic all-star games: American Poker II, Book of Ra™, Lucky Lady’s Charm™, Mega Joker™, Sizzling Hot™, Supra Hot™ and Ultra Hot™.
A completely new product celebrated its world premiere at the show in Madrid: Camping Cash™. Its innovative gaming concept combines a base game on physical reels with various bonus features and side-kicks with and without video reels on the top screen. Camping Cash™ is a guaranteed entertainment treat for every bar and is aimed to be available in all of Spain’s autonomous regions during 2013.
Also presented for the Spanish category-B markets was Novomatic’s UK subsidiary Astra Games’ highly popular Bingo King™ that already has a solid fan base in British and Spanish arcades.
Category C Products
Novomatic Gaming Spain has also established an excellent reputation as a top quality supplier of type-C equipment to all Spanish casino operators. Two products celebrated their Spanish premiere at this year’s Fer Interazar: the Pinball Roulette™ which uniquely combines the attraction of the traditional roulette with the amusement factor of a pinball launching mechanism, and – surely a major highlight of the show – the new cabinet Dominator®.
After making its world debut, two months earlier, at ICE, the Dominator® was a major attraction in Spain. This is a truly ground breaking gaming machine that will be the undisputed leader on any gaming floor. The Dominator®’s stirring game-synchronized LED-effects plus three 24” TFT screens for gripping graphics display as well as top sound combine to create an unforgettable in-depth gaming experience for the guest. This machine also features an optional independent 18.5” multi-purpose TFT topper for all sorts of casino information or game specific displays. Further new features are the innovative touch panel player interface and a facilitation for casino staff: the Dominator®’s main door opens upwards on gas springs, providing safe and easy access for maintenance work plus optimum space between machines in a bank.
And the international casino hit machine Super-V+ Gaminator® was also displayed at the show in Madrid. The multi-game mix number 55 is already licensed in various autonomous regions in Spain and provides a comprehensive gaming choice for the operators: 14 games featuring a great diversity of game concepts and themes with up to 40 lines as well as Bingo and Roulette style games.
In addition Novomatic showed for the first time casino games of the recently acquired Unidesa casino division integrated in a Novomatic cabinet made in Austria.
Bernhard Teuchmann, Managing Director Novomatic Gaming Spain, is highly satisfied with the show results: “Fer Interazar is traditionally the most important event of the year for all companies that either sell or buy in the Spanish gaming industry and therefore our participation at this event is mandatory. This year’s show proved once more that it provides the ideal setting to display our market-specific products for the various autonomous regions to an audience of gaming experts and decision-makers. And our new products fully hit the target! We received fantastic feedback from our customers and the months to come will certainly prove that these innovations are the right products at the right time for the Spanish market.”
