Rombet will also be there. It is an active association in the gambling industry. Its aim is to establish a different approach to how the gambling industry works. They want to carry out large-scale projects that have an impact on the gaming industry. 

The SYNOT Group will be at Booth 514. The SYNOT Group is an international organization. It has operations in more than 20 countries, and they employ more than 3,000 people. SYNOT is known for its gaming content, gaming equipment, gaming solutions and gaming operations.

Merkur to Join EAE

One of the most anticipated things to happen this year at EAE is the participation of Merkur. Merkur will take booth 306. The company is expected to have a huge presence as they show new top jackpots, gaming cabinets and even cash-handling solutions for gaming operators. People can also expect demonstrations of new cash payment solutions from GeWeTe and Merkur eSolutions.

Right now, Romania has the biggest number of slot machine operations in the entirety of Europe. There are over 70,000 slot machines spread in the country. Merkur, on the other hand, is one of the biggest brands of gaming in Europe. 

The company, Merkur, has been active in the casino scene in Romania since 2004. The company has a subsidiary here called Merkur Gaming Distribution. The subsidiary is also based in Bucharest. The current leader of this company is Ms Hannelore Fuica. She confirmed that the two most popular games that Romanians like are fruit games, or slot machines, and roulette. No wonder there are so many slot machines in the country.

Merkur has a solid footing on both game types. They also have sports betting operations in Romania. Today, Merkur is one of the leading providers of 3D roulette where they provide a new type of animation. Here, the wheel itself offers an enhanced speed of play.

The new game is going to be a highlight in the participation of Merkur. They are expected to present this is the expo. They will also provide details on the linked progressive jackpots that they call Link Zone. This technology already exists in a gaming cabinet called the Avantgarde Max Trio. 

The Solar Link is also expected to make a buzz, which is already in the Allegro Tri gaming cabinet. Then, there is the anticipated Mystery jackpot that Merkur is set to display in the Avante Trio gaming cabinet. The cabinets offer players a wide range of slots to play.

The spokesperson of the EAE said that Romania is a significant market for Merkur. The show will create a significant impact in the representation of the history of the country and also demonstrate the company’s commitment to gaming.

The 2022 EAE is ambitious, and the organizers want it to be the premier expo for the gambling and betting industries. They want to be recognized as the world’s best gaming show in the eastern side of Europe and the Balkan region. The post-pandemic trade show is a testament that the casino industry is now returning to its pre-covid levels.
