Another important gaming industry B2B event returned in March, post-Covid, with the 42nd edition of the Dublin-based Irish Gaming Show that was hosted in a new venue, the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Santry.
Catering for all sectors of the flourishing Irish gaming industry, casinos, amusements, ar-cades, bingo halls and single-site operations, the show took place with the backdrop of the 2022 creation of the new Gambling Regulatory Authority of Ireland that has moved to create forthcoming new regulations for gaming operations.
The Merkur brand has had a successful presence in Ireland for some years, working in tandem with distributive partner EU Slot Sales (who are also operators and multiple venue owners) and exhibited in Dublin with a strong product range that proved to be a definite top attraction for visitors.
With an eye firmly on the implementation of the new regulatory framework Merkur presented a new multigame collection, Diamond Games, that has been created to comply with any future stakes and prizes limitations.
Speaking at the show, Athanasios “Sakis” Isaakidis, Merkur Gaming’s chief executive, international, stated: ”It was a great pleasure to attend the Irish Gaming Show and I am extremely grateful to Philip and Steven O’Leary of EU Slot Sales for all of their continued support over the past few years.
“They are currently installing our Merkur Mystery and our successful linked jackpots Red Pocket and Link Zone2 in their own locations and thus gaining valuable data and player reactions as those products, and others, gain valuable floor space and player feedback on prime locations throughout Ireland.”
