Austria-based casino gaming equipment supplier Novomatic AG has clarified that Jade Entertainment and Gaming Technologies Inc continues to be a Novomatic distributor for Southeast Asia.
The clarification came following a Novomatic press release issued last week announcing that the firm had signed a distribution agreement with Australia-based Indo Pacific Gaming. Under the deal, the latter company will distribute Novomatic’s full range of gaming products and systems in the Asia-Pacific region, including in Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka, Goa, Nepal and Vietnam, it was stated at the time.
Novomatic clarified in its latest release that both Jade Entertainment and Indo Pacific Gaming were official Novomatic distributors in Southeast Asia, including for Vietnam.
“I am thrilled to have these two stellar companies, Jade Entertainment and Indo Pacific Gaming representing Novomatic in Southeast Asia,” said Robert Dijkstra, Novomatic vice president of business development and sales, Asia Pacific in prepared comments included in the release.
“Jade Entertainment is Novomatic’s long-standing distributor for the Southeast Asian region and primarily focused on markets including the Philippines, Macau, Malaysia and Vietnam – with sales and support offices in each of these countries,” the Austria-based firm added.
Joe Pisano, CEO Jade Entertainment, said in a prepared statement: “Jade Entertainment and Novomatic are striving to develop the Southeast Asian market together, and we have made headway with multiple electronic table game and systems installations. We are excited about the future, especially with the release of Novomatic’s new Asian-themed content and linked progressive titles, which we expect to have exceptional performance.”
Novomatic added in its latest release that the company’s sales channels also had been extended with the appointment of sales manager Michael Barsin to support the region. Mr Barsin is based in Hong Kong and reports to Mr Dijkstra.
