Two makers of gaming equipment, Slovenia-based Spintec d.o.o. and Merkur Gaming of Germany, have formed a partnership to share technology, said the two companies in separate press releases.
Spintec makes electronic table games and Merkur Gaming makes slot machines. The product portfolio includes standalone games, compact gaming solutions and amphitheatre gaming. The games will include sic bo, craps, roulette and baccarat, and are available in automated, virtual and live versions, according to the release.
Merkur Gaming issued on Monday a written statement saying the partnership, formed last month, enables it to market Spintec products in the Merkur design in some countries. The countries are not identified.
The statement quotes Spintec chief executive Goran Miskulin as saying of the partnership: “We feel that this partnership will have a big impact on Spintec’s and Merkur’s business and will resonate in the industry around the world.”
A separate release from Spintec quoted Athanasios Isaakidis, Merkur Gaming’s chief executive international, as saying: “We are delighted to have Spintec … as our partner and are confident that this collaboration will be a great success for both Merkur Gaming and Spintec.”
Spintec said last November that it had made several deals at the MGS Entertainment Show in Macau last year to sell equipment to gaming businesses in the Philippines and Vietnam.
Spintec’s regional sales manager Primoz Krsevan told GGRAsia the company’s products were based on the ergonomics of Asian gamers and included “a lot of small details… when you put them all together, it turns out to be a good product”.
“Asia is one of the most important markets for us since it’s accountable for 40 percent of all deals we had so far in 2018 worldwide. And with every business meeting we have, we are growing and expanding our market share there,” he added.
