Bluberi was a small Canadian slot manufacturer that specialized in Class II games when Andrew Burke was hired to take them to the next level. With expertise in game development, he immediately began working with Bluberi’s design teams to make a splash in the Class III market. With a background in Class II and experience at AGS as their vice president of slot products, Burke brings a vision and strategy to Bluberi where he hopes to build the company into a powerhouse along with a vastly experienced team he’s assembled. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at the Bluberi headquarters in May.
