Alfastreet places a big wager on Royal Derby. By David McKee
Back in 1992, Alfastreet was founded to manufacture furniture. Today, the company is still making tables and consoles – but of a very different kind. When Iztok Pockaj took over the family business in 1994, he saw the potential of redirecting the company’s energies into the gaming industry, starting with the R8 electronic-roulette console, still the company’s best-selling product. Their high numbers of spins endeared them to casinos, while players liked the private betting terminals that came with the game.
