Konami Successful at Casino Bad Homburg

Konami Successful at Casino Bad Homburg

DRGT, the European distributor for slot-maker Konami Gaming, reported that its launch of games in the prestigious Casino Bad Homburg in Germany was a big success.

The initial trial of four single-game machines has been deemed successful by the casino and by DRGT, which identified the games as African Diamond, China Shores, Full Moon Diamond and Egyptian Eyes.

The German casino market is rather traditional and focuses mainly on the biggest brands, making it a difficult market to crack, according to Lutz Schenkel, managing director of Casino Bad Homburg.

“It could be said that it was a risk to even try Konami,” Schenkel said. “Usually, a newcomer’s slot machine is popular in the first few weeks then interest tails off. That is why most casino managers here choose what they know based on past experience. The results of the Konami slots have been continually positive. They are sought-after by our customers, so we made the natural choice to keep Konami on our floor. Konami quickly became popular and has remained so with our customers.”
