Lübbecke/Las Vegas. G2E in 2019 went down in history as a truly outstanding trade show for the MERKUR brand. After missing the show in 2020 and a so-called hybrid show in 2021, MERKUR is now doing everything it can to ensure that the upcoming Global Gaming Expo marks another positive milestone for the brand's international reputation and success.
At its usual location at the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, MERKUR will showcase the strength, depth and diversity of its product portfolio at booth 3353. MERKUR will be joined by sister companies edict eGaming, GeWeTe, the innovator in cash processing technology, and MERKUR eSolutions, which will showcase the groundbreaking paylado e-wallet, offering the easiest way to turn cash into e-money.
The MERKUR brand is known for its popular slots such as Eye of Horus and it is defined by the two phrases 'Fueled by Tradition' and 'Powered by the Joy of Playing' and the product presentation at G2E will fully represent these goals and ambitions. In the three years between the last two G2E events, slot machines worldwide have been dominated primarily by linked progressive machines. The "links" progressive has become a "must have" product for successful gaming entertainment. At G2E, MERKUR will introduce the latest and greatest names such as the already highly successful Link Zone and Solar Link, which are now joined by the Chinese-themed Red Pocket, which, like all MERKUR Links, has its own selection of individual base games that give players access to the multi-tiered progressive jackpot.
In Chinese culture, the color red is considered a symbol of prosperity and good luck. On special occasions (e.g. birthdays and Chinese New Year), red envelopes containing the so-called "lucky money" are given as gifts. Red Pocket offers these red pockets as a feature that upgrades certain game symbols to gold symbols to get higher prizes and, when five envelopes are collected, hit the Red Pocket jackpot. A full screen (15 symbols) will hit the big jackpot.
Booth design and integration with great games has always been a strength of MERKUR. On display at G2E will be the Avante Curved Plus for dedicated UHD gaming, the Allegro Trio with Link Zone and the latest evolution of the MERKUR Mystery Jackpot. The Avantgarde Max Trio will showcase new multigame mixes, including China Charms and The Fortunes of Fulu Chen.
A very important factor in MERKUR's G2E lineup is the great importance the show has for visitors and business partners from all Latin American countries. These visitors to the show - especially those from Mexico - consider G2E their "home" show, and MERKUR's international teams will be on hand to welcome them.
This important factor is highlighted by Athanasios 'Sakis' Isaakidis, Chief Executive International, "MERKUR is convinced that we will see a large number of visitors from all over Latin America in Las Vegas.
