Returning to the Irish Gaming Show for the second year in a row, Merkur Gaming, were rewarded with two busy exhibition days and a highly successful product launch for its Evostar.
Following on from the popular response to the market introduction of the Merkurstar at last year’s show, the Gauselmann Group teamed up with FunFair Amusements as official distributor and within 12 months had installed over 100 machines in the Irish market.
“Ireland is a key growth market for Merkur Gaming and even after just a few months we are already making very successful inroads,” said Markus Wessler, sales director Merkur Gaming.
“This has prompted us to increase our presence at the Irish Gaming Show this year, which – if the renewed positive visitor feedback is anything to go by – was the right decision.”
At this year’s Irish Gaming Show, Merkur Gaming presented the Evostar, which combines the ergonomic aspects and player comfort of a slant top with the typical characteristics of an upright cabinet. With a special focus on comfort the Evostar also has an integrated USB port so players can charge their mobile phone. Coupled with the latest Merkur Gaming software featuring more than 100 games, the firm says the Evostar “offers maximum comfort, entertainment and variety”.
Philip O’Leary, managing director of FunFair Amusements Limited, was also enthusiastic about the collaboration with Merkur Gaming: “The partnership with an international group of Gauselmann’s standing means a lot to FunFair Amusements. The past year has already shown that Merkur Gaming’s product portfolio ideally complements our own and has met with keen interest on the Irish market.”
