Elektroncek Gets Nevada License

Slovenia-based Elektroncek, which produces the Interblock gaming devices, including the Organic line, has acquired a gaming license for Nevada in the U.S.

The company already had licenses in 19 North American jurisdictions.

The license caps seven years of work and an investment put at millions of dollars.

Electroncek partners Joc Pececnik and Thomas Zvipelj spent the past five years working with the Nevada Gaming Control Board and a team that included lawyers, American financial experts, gaming veterans and former regulators.

“I think the applicants have done a pretty remarkable job in responding to regulators’ concerns,” said board chairman Dennis Neilander at the hearing in December. Neilander had previously referred to problems with the application as “irreparable.”

The company will soon begin distributing its electronic table games in Nevada. The games include roulette, blackjack and craps, and have been popular in jurisdictions around the world.
