Unicum, and Videobet form joint venture for Ukraine

Unicum Gaming Group, Russia’s largest producer of gaming equipment, has signed a joint venture agreement with Videobet, a world leader in server-supported gaming.

The joint venture is getting under way with a deployment of 500 BLING multi-game machines in a server-supported configuration in several casinos across the Ukraine.

The BLING multi-game package for the Ukraine market will include successful slot games such as Dr. Lovemore, Desert Treasure, Queen of the Pyramids and others, along with classic games such as Black Jack and Roulette. The package will also feature targeted Ukraine games like Zka Ska.

Over the period of a few months the games were field-tested in a number of Ukrainian slot halls, with what the company says were “amazing” results. The tested cabinets with the BLING multi-game package became extremely popular among players and showed a constant yield, exceeding the average of similar characteristics of other manufacturers’ products in the same slot halls.

BLING multi-game machines, housed in sleek Midas and Deluxe cabinets, employ multimedia technology, according to a company official, “to provide players with the ultimate gaming experience.”

The deployment is expected to take place during the second quarter of 2008.
