Intralot’s efforts to establish a foothold in the Caribbean have taken another step as they signed a deal to provide VLTs and a monitoring system to Supreme Ventures Limited’s (SVL) gaming lounges. Through subsidiary Intralot Caribbean Ventures, they signed an agreement with Prime Sports (Jamaica), a subsidiary of SVL, to provide the VLTs and electronic monitoring system “iGEM.”
Mr. Nikos Nikolakopoulos, Managing Director of INTRALOT Latin America, stated, “Our investment in Jamaica two years ago was a result of the great potential we saw in the region. We have established well our presence in the island and we are now expanding further our excellent cooperation with our partner SVL, in the slot gaming sector. We are also really pleased, since this is the second installation of the iGEM system that we will implement in the Latin American region within a year, after Peru and we are confident that it will be as successful.”
Intralot has been jammin’ with SVL since 2008 and the news comes after SVL was recently awarded an extension to their Lottery Gaming License until 2026.
On the online casino front, bet365 has become the first company to license four new slot games from GTECH G2. The full-feature slot machines have been developed by Unionjackpots.com and include Mad Money Monster and Treasure Hunter.
“This is a world first product and customer interest is very high,” said Dominic Mansour, VP Gaming Products at GTECH G2. “So we’re delighted to be the first to acquire it.”
Chairman of the developers Unionjackpots.com, Peter Clayton, added, “In terms of what is out there this is night and day. If you look at what is currently available online in the fruit machine sector, with virtually no features or game play, they’re effectively a very basic and boring cut down slot. The offline industry did make games like that, but back in the 80’s.”
