In 2008 Hermes joined the Com Trade Group and together with Spinnaker New Technologies now represents the IT solutions and services business unit of the Com Trade Group.

Com Trade is the parent company of both Hermes and Spinnaker and has a presence in 14 countries and has a total revenue of €300m. In the gaming industry the company provides technology solutions for casino operations, online gaming providers and gaming operators and was recently awarded a UK gaming license enabling them to offer a unique product within the live gaming market.

It has developed the Server Based Gaming (SBG) System for gaming vendors and has also developed gaming software services for casino, arcade and pub operators. Hermes is also active in the online gaming field.

Ales Gornjec, Business Development Manager for Gaming at Com Trade said: “At present we do not have direct dealings in Slovenia however we are always looking for new opportunities within our own country. The economic climate of 2009 meant that a number of Slovenian operators became cautious and

budgets were frozen. We have however noticed signs of recovery in the first half of 2010.”

THT THT is a two year old Slovenian company which specialises in electronic poker tables available in two, five or 10 player models. After initially focusing on the Italian market new projects have since been developed to enter other markets including the Fairplay Baccarat table, Blackjack table and the Trente et Quarante table.

At the moment THT is certifying machines through SIQ standards and does not yet have products available for the Slovenian market but has had a successful year with products to date in Italy and Ireland. “Our patented gaming concept is something never seen before in the gaming world and our plan is to install several machines in Slovenia and Croatia but our core targeted market is Asia for baccarat and the rest of the world for other games like blackjack and poker etc.,” commented THT’s Alenka Sršen regarding the new developments.
