Austria-based gaming equipment maker and operator Novomatic Group says it has signed a distribution agreement with Australia-based Indo Pacific Gaming (IPG). Under the deal, the latter company will distribute Novomatic’s full range of gaming products and systems in the Asia-Pacific region, according to a Thursday press release.
Indo Pacific Gaming is a multi-product distributor and operator of gaming products. According to its corporate website, the company has been supplying casino gaming equipment and slot machine systems to gaming venues across the Asia-Pacific region since 1989.
Under the agreement announced on Thursday, Indo Pacific Gaming will provide sales distribution in Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka, Goa, Nepal and Vietnam. The Novomatic product suite consists of slot machines, market-focused games and multi-game mixes, electronic table games, systems, jackpots, sports betting and media technologies.
Novomatic said in the release that the partnership would accelerate the company’s expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
“By partnering with Indo Pacific Gaming, who has a very respectable track record in these territories, Novomatic will strengthen its presence and reach to provide products and services to new and existing customers,” said Robert Dijkstra (pictured left), Novomatic’s vice president of business development and sales for Asia-Pacific, in a prepared statement.
The Austrian supplier of gaming technology launched last week a new electronic gaming machine cabinet called the V.I.P. Eagle III 3.32 at the International Casino Exhibition (ICE) 2019 in London. A Novomatic spokesman told GGRAsia the V.I.P. Eagle III 3.32 would be available in Asia.
In Thursday’s release, Novomatic said that its portfolio of Asian-themed slot games is expanding, adding that a few new titles such as “Dragon Hits” and “Asian Dragon Hot” had their debut at ICE 2019.
The release also quoted Loren Stout (pictured right), Indo Pacific Gaming’s vice president of operations and sales, as saying that the distribution agreement “further strengthens” his company’s product portfolio.
Novomatic’s chief executive Harald Neumann said in a press conference at ICE last week that the group expected to post record revenue for full-year 2018.
