BMM Testlabs Attends ENADA, Rome 2015
BMM Testlabs’ staff and executives from the Italy office attended ENADA Rome earlier this month, to meet with attendees from the region’s land-based and online businesses.
ENADA Rome, now in its 43rd year, mainly focused on the AWP segment for 2015 with less predominance on VLTs and on-line products.
Marzia Turrini, SVP Southern Europe commented, “Italy’s gaming future is still not clear, and it is transitioning through a difficult phase. Unfortunately discussion on the Legge Delega decree has ceased, but a number of important initiatives are still currently in discussion in Parliament. These include the partial reduction of the number of installed AWP machines, by having them connected to a central system similar to server based machines (networked AWP), and also the possibility for independent test labs to verify VLT platforms and games. We sincerely hope that some of these initiatives will materialize in 2016, as that would provide a great deal of confidence to the market.”
Turrini continued, “Even with the uncertainty of the Italian gaming sector, ENADA 2015 was very positive for all attendees. The market is asking for new products, and more importantly, for clear rules and regulations. There is no doubt that Italy will remain one of Europe’s most important gaming markets and BMM Testlabs will continue to be at the forefront of regulated gaming in the region.”
