The first ever NIGA exhibition and conference to be held in Las Vegas proved to be a hometown success for Merkur Gaming US and its locally based games development studio, Sunshine Games. The company showcased an entirely new range of 10 games badged as ‘made in America, by Americans and for Americans’, eight of which were from LV-based Sunshine Games and two from High 5 Games of New York.
Merkur revealed four Chinese themed games, Baozang, Immortal Emperor, Immortal Princess, and Striking Fortunes, plus the Egyptian adventure Amulet of the Pharaoh. Also shown were Taco Tuesday and its latest evolution, Taco Tuesday Hot Sauce, as well as the Irish leprechaun themed Land of Charms. Add to that Wellspring, a game based on the search for immortal youth, and Legends of Troy from High 5 Games and the Merkur Gaming booth was packed with new attractions.
“Given the enthusiastic responses received from visitors it is clear that NIGA 2018 marked a significant forward step in the development of Merkur Games US as a top level games producer in the US market,” said the firm.
Merkur Gaming US, an associate member of NIGA, congratulated the association’s longstanding chairman, Ernie Stevens Jr, on the success of this year’s show. CEO Charles Hiten stated: “The figures show that NIGA in Las Vegas was a major success, in terms of both exhibitors and visitors. For us, the show was a chance to show the high level of products that we are bringing to the US and it was both exciting and gratifying to receive the overall high levels of positive reaction that we received.”
