Merkur Gaming Peru, part of the Gauselmann Group, has hailed the 2018 business year as its most successful ever. A significant milestone was reached last year with the company able to count 3,760 of its gaming machines sited on Peru’s slot floors. From the country’s 731 licensed gaming halls Merkur has completed installations and is working in 84.9 per cent, or 621 locations, marking an all time record, to date.
According to the company, it has earned a reputation as a respected, top level, tier one brand in the Peruvian gaming space and the company records its high appreciation for the trust, loyalty and support of all of the country’s leading operators. The biggest success story in Peru to date has been the Avantgarde Powerhouse, a multi-game machine that is now firmly established as the country’s number one ‘must have’ gaming entertainment product.
For 2019 the Merkur Gaming Peru team claims to be working flat out to better those results and to extend its market presence there. Charles Hiten, CEO of Merkur Gaming Americas, commented: “Peru is one of the most significant markets in Latin America for Merkur Gaming. To be now, after just a few short years, active in 85 per cent of the country’s licensed gaming operations is a testament to our Merkur Gaming Peru team and to the strength of our brand and our made in Germany products.
“As we continue to bring new and exciting games and cabinets to market we are fully committed to providing operators with all the support that they need as well meeting Peru’s ever increasingly sophisticated and knowledgeable players’ wish for greater levels of gaming entertainment.”
Tomas Mieles, Sales Director, Merkur Gaming Latin America added: “I am, I believe justifiably, proud of what Merkur Gaming Peru has achieved to date. We are in the Peruvian market for the long term and we are confident of further expansion and success in the future.”
