Sydney, Australia: IndoPacific Gaming (IPG), a leading distributor of gaming and casino products for the Australia, Asia and Pacific region, is pleased to announce that the R. Franco Group have appointed IPG as exclusive distributor for their slot machines in Australia and Asia.

“We look forward to introducing the Franco range of slot machines to casino and gaming operators in Australia & New Zealand, as well as selected Asian countries including Macau, Singapore, Cambodia, Taiwan, China, Malaysia and Laos,” said Mr William Redshaw, CEO, IndoPacific Gaming Pty. Ltd.

“R. Franco have over 30 years experience developing successful games, and offers a range of popular and new products targeted at the Asian casino market.”

Asia is regarded as one of the few remaining regions for expansion of casino gaming, and is estimated to generate more than US$20 billion in gaming revenues by 2009. Currently, analysts believe that the 80 or so casinos in Asia generate US$13 billion. The increase will come from the slated new developments in Macau and Singapore, in addition to the potential for new legal casino markets in Thailand, Taiwan, India and Japan.

“We believe that the slot machine market in Asia represents enormous potential. Although R. Franco already supplies slot machines to some casinos in the region, we believe that IPG as our exclusive distributor is our best choice for further expansion,” said Mr Santiago Vinas, Sales Director, R. Franco.

“IndoPacific has long established relationships with the major gaming operators, and will also offer service and support for our range of machines.”

R. Franco currently offers more than 25 different slot games based on the new digital passion platform. The machines are available in a range of ergonomic cabinet designs.
