Electronic casino games specialist Weike Gaming Technology (S) Pte Ltd is among nine companies newly approved for membership of the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM).
The nine newcomers take AGEM’s membership tally to 166 businesses, according to a Thursday press release.
Weike Gaming was established in 1998. Its products are available in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam, Macau and Laos, according to the firm’s website. It is based in Singapore.
The firm – an early promoter of automated casino electronic table games as a way for operators to manage running costs – announced earlier this year its first large-scale virtual product in the category.
Another new member of AGEM is Canada-based Nanoptix Inc. In November last year, the firm reached a partnership with casino cash handling and transaction technology specialist SuzoHapp Group, involving the global distribution of all the printer products of Nanoptix.
Other new members of AGEM announced in Thursday’s statement include accounting firms BDO USA LLP and Deloitte LLP; business and technology consultancy Capco; and card manufacturer United States Playing Card Company.
AGEM is a non-profit international trade association representing manufacturers and suppliers of electronic gaming devices, systems, table games, online technology, key components, and support products and services for the gaming industry.
