Roulette73 showcased its innovative wheel at ICE to an extremely receptive audience of both casino dealers and players.
Freddy Kurilic, head of sales at Roulette73, explained why the company’s flagship product garnered so much attention. “There were several occasions where players and dealers of different casinos gathered at our booth to try Roulette73 and they really liked it,” he said. “When our wheel was designed we asked for their input, so the game is really made with players in mind.”
Kurilic also spoke the many casino managers at the event, networking with contacts across Europe, particularly in the UK and Spain.
“We made a few very valuable contacts with managers that are interested in Roulette73 and we are speaking with them about placing Roulette73 into their casinos,” he continued. “Most of this interest is coming from the UK and Spain. The UK is interesting because people prefer live games, which surprised me. It really was a joy seeing UK players trying Roulette73 at our booth, and seeing how bonded they are to live gaming. It is a totally different feeling - touching chips and placing the bet, rather than tapping buttons or a touch screen.”
Kurilic added that the African market also has potential, but other jurisdictions are much harder to break into.
“We have some African casinos interested in our product, and we are offering considerably better conditions for casinos who would be the first to install Roulette73 in their respective country,” Kurilic stated. “There are some countries, however, where placing Roulette 73 is virtually impossible. One such country is Serbia, where slot machine lobbyists are too strong and the law is such that opening live games is very difficult.”
While there are always markets with high barriers, Kurilic is in talks with casino managers in several more welcoming jurisdictions. Indeed, he expects growth in the UK throughout 2017, and installations have already been scheduled for the year ahead in Slovenia.
