NOVOMATIC presents products in Las Vegas
Subtitle: On October 9, 2018, the "Global Gaming Expo" (G2E) in Las Vegas will open its doors. Over 450 exhibitors and around 26,000 visitors from more than 110 countries are expected. NOVOMATIC, as the largest Austrian company in attendance, is represented again this year at the most important gaming trade fair in the USA.
Gumpoldskirchen, October 8, 2018 (OTS) - From October 9 to 11, 2018, NOVOMATIC will present the comprehensive product portfolio of the NOVOMATIC Group together with its listed Australian subsidiary, Ainsworth Game Technology Ltd. The range of offerings covers everything from new games – such as "MacGyver™" – for various international markets to high-tech casino equipment, jackpots and casino management systems. Visitors to the NOVOMATIC stand can also find out about online gaming products as well as newly developed sports betting solutions.
For the second time in the long history of NOVOMATIC’s participation at the largest US gaming trade fair, NOVOMATIC will exhibit in Las Vegas alongside Ainsworth at a shared stand. "The USA is an important growth market for NOVOMATIC. With Ainsworth, we aim to substantially increase our market share in the medium term, which is why we are exhibiting together," said NOVOMATIC CEO Harald Neumann in the run-up to the G2E.
As a result of the liberalization of sports betting in the USA, the local market is becoming increasingly important. "We are following the ongoing developments in the sports betting segment in the USA with great interest," said Neumann. For this reason, NOVOMATIC has joined forces with Sportradar, an international service provider of sports media and sports betting, to develop an innovative line of sports betting products and services. These will be presented in a separate area of the NOVOMATIC stand. "The US market, in particular, is considered to be highly competitive, which is why innovation and a local presence are key to success," emphasizes Neumann.
It was just recently announced that NOVOMATIC brought Felipe Ludeña on board, a well-known expert for the international sports betting business. Mr. Ludeña has overall responsibility for sports betting within the Group.
