Apex Gaming’s Clover Link was the talk of G2E, with installations already completed in five US states. Alongside this, the company also presented its Apex Player Station electronic roulette and its iDrop cash handling solution for live games tables at the show.
Apex Gaming is taking the Americas by storm, with the firm making inroads in both the US and Mexico.
The company’s rapid expansion in the region has been driven by its Clover Link jackpot game, which has become a firm favourite amongst players and operators alike. Thus it came as no surprise that Clover Link was the focus of the show for many visitors.
The Apex team took the opportunity to exhibit various versions of Clover Link: The Big Island Edition featuring eight slots in two banks; the Round Edition offering four slots in a circular design; and the flexible and expandable Wall Edition.
Additionally, operators can choose from a wide range of Pinnacle slots, including the Black Series with two wide-screen monitors, a 43” curved screen, or the Pinnacle Premium SL slant top (PPSL) with three monitors.
The number of Clover Link installations is rising quickly in the US, Apogee Gaming, Apex’s distributor for North America reports. “We have already installed Clover Link in five different US states. We will be reporting shortly on these success stories. The show was amazing – Apex has become well known in the US in a very short period of time. Player response to Clover Link has been outstanding, as evidenced by its extremely high occupancy rate,” said Apogee’s general manager Jean-Louis “JL” Drapeau.
The Apex Player Station (APS) electronic roulette can now also be found in casinos in the US. A version of APS featuring dual roulette wheels was shown on the company’s stand at G2E.
Operators appreciate the fact that the APS can be connected to up to four live and/or electronic roulette wheels. Furthermore, the APS offers four additional table games – Baccarat, Sic- Bo, Black Jack, and Bingo – as well as Apex´s latest multi-game platform EVO3.
The company also displayed its award-winning iDrop products line at the show. The cash handling solution for live games tables enables tickets and bills to be accepted directly at the table. Players no longer need to go to the cash desk to purchase chips, since the iDrop products make cash desks redundant.
The latest addition to the iDrop family, the iDropS can manage 250 bills and tickets at one time at a validation rate of up to six per second, making it ideal when players sit at a table with a large number of bills. Alongside this, it can also handle multiple currencies.
The stacker capacity reaches up to 10,000 bills/tickets. All bills and tickets are accounted for and management has immediate access to the actual live drop data.
Live gaming solutions are a further growth area for Apex. The company manufactures high quality live gaming tables with a wide choice of cloth/felts. Additionally, a full range of live gaming accessories can be sourced from Apex, including chips, cards, the ball and dice tester and a roulette wheel leveller with a levelling base.
Apex’s global sales director Kubilay Özer was extremely pleased with the outcome from this year’s G2E, stating, “Apex Gaming is now firmly on the US gaming map. Clover Link has been an amazing success here and we were very busy introducing this to operators from all around the world.
“We supply so many solutions that casino operators can source from us: slots, jackpot islands, electronic roulette, iDrop and customised live gaming solutions. We are truly making a strong contribution to take gaming to the next level here,” he concluded.
