Richard Noble Chairman of The National Casino Forum chats to Peter White

Congratulations on your appointment to chairman of The National Casino Forum. Can you outline your aims and ambitions for this role?

First of all, I’d like to thank Simon Thomas, CEO Hippodrome, for the energy and vision he’s shown as Chairman over the last two years. I have been the vice-chairman during this time, so we should have a smooth transfer from his tenure across to mine. It has been a real pleasure to work alongside Simon.

We are very fortunate to have a trade body where we have 100% of all UK casino operators as members. We all work very closely together and we all speak as one voice.

Jurgen De Munck, CEO, DR Gaming Technology™ talks to Peter White

How important is DR Gaming Technology™s attendance at G2E Asia 2018, and for how many years have you now been attending the event?

Our attendance at G2E Asia is driven by the fact that as a global supplier, we believe that it, combined with G2E Las Vegas, and ICE Totally Gaming London provides us with the best possible spread of global customers, across equally well spread times of the year.

2018 will see us exhibiting at G2E Asia for only the second time, following our initial attendance in 2017.

Is It Unlucky to Be Superstitious? Wearing Red and Other Quirky Gamblers' Habits

Superstitions are as human as it gets. We all hold on to significant rituals before big moments or scary situations – and anyone who claims to have never had any superstitious thought is probably lying. Gamblers are among the most superstitious crowds and if you hang around in any big Monte Carlo casino long enough, you will start noticing players exhibiting their own personal rituals while gambling, especially before a crucial moment in play comes up, like drawing a card or rolling the dice.

Why Do We Need Superstitions?
