Singapore-based electronic casino games and systems specialist Weike Gaming Technology (S) Pte Ltd says its partnership with Las Vegas-based Casino Game Maker Inc – to distribute the latter’s products in Asian markets outside Macau – works well for both sides.
Weike is a maker of slot machines, electronic table games and casino game systems that is licensed as a manufacturer by the Casino Regulatory Authority of Singapore. The firm says Casino Game Maker’s standalone electronic table games complement Weike’s multi-terminal game offerings such as Infinity Baccarat and Infinity Roulette.
“We like the technology they have. They have some unique products that complement our own, such as the standalone Quad Roulette and the standalone 8 Baccarat which we see a market for here in Asia,” explained Peter Kup-Ferroth (pictured), vice president of product marketing for Weike. He was speaking to GGRAsia at the Macao Gaming Show 2015.
“We distribute their product in all Asian markets bar Macau,” explained the executive.
The company said it continues to strengthen its own development team.
“We have relocated some of our [game graphics] artists from our factory to a new office in Malaysia, and added software engineering there as well… We moved that technology hub closer to Kuala Lumpur – compared to our factory location in Malaysia – to make it easier to recruit talent,” said Mr Kup-Ferroth.
Weike’s stand at Macao Gaming Show features a newly released slot game called Guan Yunchang, which the marketing executive says has been “well received across the various markets”.
“We have had plenty of customers here at MGS, particularly from the Philippines, Macau and Cambodia,” he added.
Looking ahead to 2016, Mr Kup-Ferroth says the main focus will be “to continue to develop our slots, their performance and ensure we give operators value for their money”. He added: “We will also bring to the market the standalone table products I mentioned, and enhance our current electronic table products and enhance our systems to give the customers greater performance and even stronger support”.
