´Our goal is to consolidate ourselves as one of the main developers of gaming systems in the AWP, VLT and online areas´: Manuel de Melo, Cristaltec

(Rimini, SoloAzar Exclusive).- Manuel de Melo, Manager of Cristaltec, spoke with SoloAzar about the company's participation in the recent ENADA. There he spoke about the development of the products, the goals for this year and the markets in which the firm participates, among other topics.

"Cristaltec has grown a lot. We are a company that develops products for games of chance, whether in the field of games for bars or for online games. We present many novelties at our stand at ENADA, since in the last two years, taking advantage of a little confinement, we developed a lot of internal technology. At the moment we have 55 people in the Development Department plus a team of 15 in Italy that we are working on. We made a new architecture, ours, as a game server, for the online, and after that experience we converted those bar sets into the VLT technology, with 14 certified sets in Italy, of the Inspired system. Cristaltec, for a strategic issue, acquired the online part from Merkur. We did the same with Inspired in Italy. So Cristaltec at the moment has the management of 3000 machines. Things go in parallel with the technology development part that is behind the games. It is a very dynamic, very complicated market," said de Melo.

"I see the show with great satisfaction, without a doubt it was much better than in September, where it occupied half a pavilion and now we have three pavilions and many visitors; people were interested in the products and the spirit of people and companies showed a great interest to get ahead," he added.

"The main objective of Critaltec is to consolidate ourselves as one of the main producers and developers of gaming systems in these three areas: AWP, VLT and online", he stated. "Talking about events, our objective is clearly Las Vegas next year, and I think ICE London will also return next year, and the two trade shows in Italy, too. Spain is another important market for us. We have a project with CODERE to make games for the Spanish market", he concluded.
