(Cartagena de Indias, Exclusive SoloAzar) - Meet Ester Tarres, the visionary behind Casino Garage, a world leader in refurbishing second-hand slot machines since its creation in 2006. With a team of professionals, Casino Garage has become synonymous with excellence. In this article, Ester tells us about her presence at the GAT Expo, held from 9 to 11 April.

Casino Garage: committed to sustainability

Ester Tarres began by sharing with us details about the journey of Casino Garage, created in 2006 under her management. She commented that "it has not only stood as a beacon of sustainability in the gaming industry but has also carved a unique path through its rich history of innovation and dedication to excellence.”

When reflecting on the business success, Ester adds that “from its humble beginnings in 2006 in Miami, to becoming a global leader in refurbishing pre-owned slot machines, Casino Garage's journey is as inspiring as it is impactful.”

From the beginning, the company's goal was to transform the gaming landscape, and therefore, Ester highlighted that under her guidance, “the company steadily grew, fueled by a passion for revitalizing pre-owned slot machines and a commitment to environmental responsibility.”

Related to the environment, she explained that “by breathing new life into over 1,000 pre-owned slot machines each year, Casino Garage not only benefits casino operators worldwide but also contributes to a more sustainable gaming ecosystem. Moreover, by selling our excess parts inventory through www.casinoparts.net, we ensure that these surplus components find their way to where they're most needed.”

In terms of its products, Ester detailed that “In collaboration with top slot machine manufacturers, Casino Garage facilitates global access to top-tier gaming solutions, ensuring that every machine reaches its destination in prime condition. From their initial arrival to the final shipment, Casino Garage's dedication to quality and efficiency is evident every step of the way”.

Finally, regarding her participation at the GAT Expo in Cartagena de Indias, Ester Tarres answered questions related to the company's presentation.

What specific products or services did you present at the GAT Expo Cartagena 2024?

As a representative of Casino Garage at the GAT Expo Cartagena 2024, I showcased our company's expertise in refurbishing slot machines. While we did not have a booth, we engaged with attendees to discuss our range of refurbished slot machines and how they can benefit gaming establishments in the Latin American market. 

Through one-on-one interactions and presentations, we highlighted the quality and performance of Casino Garage products, emphasizing our commitment to delivering top-notch gaming solutions. Our presence at the event allowed us to effectively represent Casino Garage and connect with potential clients to meet their gaming equipment needs. 

It was an incredibly positive experience, as through targeted outreach and networking efforts, we connected with numerous potential clients, sparking meaningful conversations and laying the groundwork for future partnerships, and, of course, closing substantial transactions. The enthusiastic response from visitors validated the value of our offerings and solidified our position as a trusted provider of refurbished slot machines in the Latin American market.

How do you perceive the Colombian iGaming market in terms of growth and opportunities compared to other countries in the region?

The Colombian Gaming market is experiencing rapid growth, propelled by clear regulations and increasing internet accessibility. It stands out in Latin America for its maturity and regulatory clarity, offering significant opportunities for operators. With a large population and favorable market conditions, Colombia remains a promising hub for Gaming expansion in the region.

What are the latest technological trends that you incorporated into your platform to provide a unique experience to Latin American customers, based on what you saw at the GAT show?

I can't provide specific insights on the latest technological trends observed there or how they were incorporated into platforms for Latin American customers. However, as for reflections on the 25th anniversary of the GAT show, it's a significant milestone that likely reflects the enduring importance of the gaming industry in the Latam region. The longevity of the event underscores the region's growth and potential as a key market for gaming companies. It's a testament to the industry's resilience and adaptability over the years.

What do you think about the regulatory laws in the region regarding the gaming industry, and how does your firm is adapting?

Regulatory laws in Latin America vary significantly from country to country, creating a complex landscape for Gaming operators. Some countries have embraced  online gambling and have established clear regulatory frameworks, while others have stricter regulations or are still in the process of developing legislation.

To adapt to these varying regulatory environments, Gaming firms typically take several approaches:

Compliance: Firms prioritize compliance with existing regulations in each jurisdiction where they operate. This involves understanding and adhering to licensing requirements, responsible gaming standards, data protection laws, and antimoney laundering regulations.

Localization: Tailoring products and services to meet the specific legal and cultural requirements of each market. This may include offering language support, accepting local payment methods, and incorporating regionally relevant content.

Advocacy: Engaging with regulators and policymakers to advocate for favorable regulatory frameworks that support a competitive and sustainable Gaming industry. This may involve participating in industry associations, providing feedback on proposed regulations, and promoting responsible gambling initiatives.

Technology: Investing in technology solutions to enhance compliance capabilities, such as age verification systems, geolocation tools, and fraud detection mechanisms. This ensures that operators can effectively monitor and enforce regulatory requirements.

Risk Management: Implementing robust risk management practices to mitigate regulatory risks and adapt quickly to changes in the regulatory landscape. This includes conducting thorough due diligence on new markets, monitoring regulatory developments, and maintaining open communication channels with regulators.

Overall, successful adaptation to regulatory laws in the Latin American region requires a combination of legal expertise, operational flexibility, and strategic foresight. By prioritizing compliance, localization, advocacy, technology, and risk management, Gaming firms can navigate the regulatory landscape effectively and position themselves for long-term success in the region.

What comments or reflections can you make in relation to the 25th anniversary of the GAT show?

The 25th anniversary of the GAT show marks a significant milestone for the gaming industry in Latin America. Over the years, GAT has served as a vital platform for networking, innovation, and business development within the region's gaming

sector. This milestone underscores the resilience and growth of the industry, highlighting its enduring relevance and potential for continued expansion. As the gaming landscape evolves, events like GAT play a crucial role in fostering collaboration, sharing insights, and driving progress across the Latin American gaming ecosystem.

What are the next events you plan to attend?

We're excited to announce that we'll be attending G2E Asia! This event presents an invaluable opportunity for us to explore the latest developments and innovations in the industry while networking with fellow professionals and experts on the other side of the world: Asia. We're eager to engage with industry leaders, exchange insights, and stay updated on emerging trends."
