EGT’s market coverage spans more than 80 countries and its supported network of offices extends to Europa, Africa, Asia, North, Central and South America.

The Global Gaming Awards in London is an offshoot of the well-known Global Gaming Awards in Las Vegas.

The competition was created by gaming publication Gambling Insider.

EGT’s Peru market going from strength to strength

According to European Gaming, EGT’s Peru stable reached a milestone of installing 1,500 machines in 300 out of 800 gaming establishments across the country.

Their attractive, ergonomically designed machines, coupled with an absorbing multi-game offering such as the Collection series has meant they are a perfect fit for most operators.

“Only for 2 years we managed to become recognisable in Peru with our gaming content and impeccable services and reached results that no one expected,” director of EGT Peru Mario Trayanski said.

“Currently we partner with most of the local key operators and the feedback we receive assures us that we are on the right track.”

The expected changes in gaming industry taxation in 2019 will likely impact small casino operators that hold 25 per cent of the market.

Mr Trayanski remains optimistic about his office’s performance throughout the year, despite a potential downturn.

“I have every reason to believe that the months ahead will be challenging, busy, but at the end even more successful for EGT Peru, as our main asset is a team of dedicated professionals and a portfolio that would never mislead our customers. Therefore we will go after a market share of at least five per cent,” he said.

Apart from a sales increase, EGT Peru’s 2019 plans include new partnerships and product launches that will meet the highest industry standards.

EGT was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in the European country of Bulgaria.

The company currently consists of five buildings on 16,000 square metres of space that accommodates administrative offices, research and design, manufacturing and service facilities, warehouses, a product showroom and a restaurant.

EGT employs more than 1,500 people with its product portfolio including video slot games, gaming machines, jackpot systems, electronic roulettes, semi-electronic blackjack tables, mobile play stations and gaming accessories.
