Max Lindenberg: “Panama is a market that is developing very rapidly, with an amazing future ahead”
(Soloazar Exclusive) Max Lindenberg, Director of Marketing and Business Development in Novomatic spoke exclusively with Soloazar about the products that this company and its subsidiary, Octavian Argentina, presented in SAGSE Panama 2012. He also referred to the Panamanian market and the possibilities of growth in the region.
Which products did you show in SAGSE Panama 2012?
We presented our internationally popular slant top cabinet NOVOSTAR SL and the Super-V + Gaminator, as well as our electronic multi-player products based on NOVO LINE Novo Unity II. We showed these with automatic and semi-automatic versions and with the multi-game functionality that also offers a selection of slot games on each connected player terminal.
The Super-V + Gaminator III cabinet was presented with the Marilyn games Marilyn Blue Star, Marilyn Red Carpet and Marilyn’s Diamonds as well as with the Premium-V+ Gaminator multi-game mix. With the Novo Super-Vision cabinet we presented a regionally specific product for the Latin American markets, as well as for the Caribbean, with special commercial conditions.
Novomatic also displayed a selection of Coolfire II single games such as Costa del Cash, Bee Wild and Northern Light and NOVO LINE single games such as Garden Of Fortune, Golden Scarabs II and Gorilla; all on the NOVOSTAR SL2 slant top which has become such a sensation all around the world.
Least but for sure not least, we brought to Panama products from Octavian Argentina, which are specifically tailored for these markets – among them the online casino management system ACP (Accounting, Control, Progressives).
How would you describe the Panamanian Market?
Panama is a market that is developing very rapidly, with an amazing future ahead. There is a strong demand for new products in this industry sector and that is very positive for companies like Novomatic. Our products are performing extremely well throughout the region and the customers are happy with the results. Also here at the SAGSE we have received fantastic feedback from customers, who came from all over Latin America to visit the show. We are, of course, looking forward to further strengthen our position in this market.
At which exhibitions will Novomatic be present in the future?
We have, of course, the upcoming show in Las Vegas, G2E, and we are also looking forward to SAGSE in Argentina. Right now we are preparing for the Perú Gaming Show, and several other exhibitions where we will be present around the world.
