The Wild Coast Winter Games that was hosted between 21st and 24th July by the renowned gaming and resort operator Sun International at its spectacular Wild Coast Sun Resort & Casino once again enabled DRGT to underline its unique benefits to the African gaming market. With DRGT's system presence growing substantially throughout Africa, there was considerable interest in the demonstration installation displayed at the event and in the ease in which the system can be implemented in sites of just a handful of gaming devices through to much larger properties without the need for conventional complex IT server infrastructure.
As state authorities throughout Africa seek the means to reliably and efficiently monitor gaming operations to ensure game integrity and revenue reporting, it was no surprise that the DRGT monitoring and accounting features were a key topic of conversations held with the visiting regulators.
The Wild Coast Winter Games is an increasingly important event that has become a highlight of the African gaming industry calendar. It is attended by representatives of most of the region's gaming operators, manufacturers and regulators. Golf and fishing form part of the daytime menu in a programme that in the evenings brings together the continent's industry decision-makers and opinion-shapers for informal discussions amongst the exhibition stands within the resort's conference centre. With many attendees taking full advantage of the warm winter sun for some golf or fishing, the relaxing setting and casual format creates a unique but valuable professional networking opportunity.
Mr. Jurgen De Munck, CEO and co-founder of DRGT, was himself present at the show and commented, “The Wild Coast Winter Games is the perfect location for us to portray the complete systems solutions of DRGT. Systems are per se complex technology. We have taken this complex technology and made it extremely user-friendly. The more user-friendly it is, the more operators will and can make use of it. This is key as we offer a world of benefits. Our partner here Simplicit-e is doing an excellent job in enabling operators all round Africa to make use of the DRGT systems solutions”.
