Brand new at ICE was the launch of the Merkur Roulette. This is the product of the recently concluded Strategic Technology Alliance between Merkur Gaming and Spintec of Slovenia. Built in Merkur style and of the highest quality the Merkur Roulette is a premium product that marks the Gauselmann Group’s proud entry into the multiplayer electronic table games market. Given its own dedicated space on the ICE booth the Merkur Roulette 8-player unit attracted both visitor attention and praise in equal measure and was an undoubted star of the show in its own right. Another brand new development was the announcement that the UK Gauselmann subsidiary Blueprint Games is to enter the UK casino market with a range of B1 category games that, immediately post-ICE, would go on location trial with some of the UK’s leading casino operators.

CE Totally Gaming turned into a great success for Spintec. The company showcased their two product lines, Aura amphitheatre solution and Karma compact gaming solution, and a new product line, Merkur ETG which is a result of a new strategical and technology partnership with Merkur Gaming. New Merkur ETGs powered by Spintec were presented for the first time in London at the Merkur booth. Spintec presented a broadened game selection; on top of already-

developed games like Roulette, Sic Bo, Craps and Baccarat, they added one more game to the game portfolio: Blackjack. They’ve put together a game full of exciting functionalities that are flexible and can be adaptable for every casino floor separately. Receiving positive feedback from the market, especially for the five additional side bets, confirmed Spintec made a great job. The company is excited to launch their new game onto the market. For Spintec, ICE was also an opportunity to meet with their valuable

customers and with most of the distributors. Also, meeting distributors and after hearing their positive foresight on the individual markets, made Spintec even more optimistic for 2019. Spintec has renewed agreements with most of their distributors; the greatest potential for further market growth this year is definitely in Australia. ICE proved to be a great success for Spintec again this year, and they were delighted with many visitors to the stand.
