"The focus will be to penetrate in South America and boost what we have done in Europe, because we have many possibilities there", said Bouchot.
What did you present in London?
We presented our two lines of products: electronic PokerPro, which has been our unique product for seven years, and obviously, we introduced electronic Black Jack for the first time in Europe.
Which has been the feedback from the public?
Very good. Basically, the interest comes from countries in which there is a need of online games more than than live games, such as France, and Eastern countries like Bulgaria and Romania. Those are our targets in Europe. We are now also very interested in Italy.
Which are the most important markets for the company?
At an international level, obviously the ones I previously mentioned. In US, we target racinos or horse racetracks converted in casinos. In South America, we are recently starting and we will concentrate in three countries for obvious reasons: Peru, Argentina and Colombia, because they have many online casinos. We are also having a good performance in South Africa.
Are the novelties for the whole year the ones presented in London or are you developing new products?
The poker platform will be the same, it is maintained with ten seats. The Black Jack platform will include all the different types of games played against the house. It means that the next game is baccarat, with an additional bet, and then we will do a poker similar to the Caribbean style poker. Basically with that products we have the whole live gaming option.
What was the performance for 2011 and which are the expectations for this year?
In 2011, as we all know, and more than anything for PokerPro, it was difficult due to what happened in Mexico. We had 80 tables there. But for 2012 we have the hope that Mexico returns to half of what it has been; however, no one knows. Then, the focus will be to penetrate in South America and boost what we have done in Europe, because we have many possibilities there. We will start organizing a group of distributors or agents in Europe, which will be focused in the countries Individually. That model will be replicated in the other continents.
