According to Dublin-based company BetStone (www.betstone.com), the pioneer in Server Based Gaming (SBG), this year’s EY!2009 event saw South American casinos realise they need to fully embrace Server Based Gaming technology now to maintain their edge.
Avron Goss, Director of BetStone revealed this during his participation at the EY!2009 conference which discussed how Server Based Gaming machines from BetStone have already redefined casino floors in Latin America. He also highlighted the advantages of Server Based Gaming and provided guidelines to casinos seeking advice on rolling out Server Based Gaming technology based on BetStone’s experience in rolling out this new technology in multiple Latin American countries. He explained how BetStone is able to fully meet the demands of operators for the latest content without downtime and how this generates significant cost and time savings.
“Progressive legislation in South American governments and early adoption of Server Based Gaming technology means South America has set new standards in the next generation of gaming,” said Goss. “Early Server Based Gaming adoption by BetStone’s Latin American clients, has delivered gaming the way customers demand, dynamic with fresh and exciting content. While there are multiple markets within South America, each with their unique requirements, the success rate with Server Based Gaming has been consistent in all of them. But other competitive markets are looking to adopt this technology and BetStone is receiving queries on the technology globally now. The message from both SAGSE and EY!2009 is South American casinos who fully adopt this technology will eclipse competition both at home and abroad.”
“EY!2009 was interesting as there were some myths around Server Based Gaming that needed to be debunked,” said Goss. “The biggest myth is that this is a difficult technology to implement. Nothing could be further from the truth.
BetStone has installed Server Based Gaming machines in numerous locations from as little as 20 BetStone machines running alongside legacy machines to as much as taking over the whole floor. As technology gets better, use of the technology gets simpler. A fully automatic car with skid control and anti-lock on the breaks is easier to drive than a manual car from the sixties! It is the same with Server Based Gaming which is as simple as installing an email system in your office”.
BetStone offers the largest Server Based Gaming content library globally, with over 90 games currently available on its platform and an aggressive release schedule delivering 20 games a quarter to its customers worldwide. Its games library already offers Class III and Class II games, Video Poker, Bingo and Table Games, as well as regional specific content. By adopting BetStone’s platform, Casinos can access powerful Business Intelligence Tools and Casino Management Systems which are valuable assets in managing their businesses. (E-10.02.09)
