Gauselmann Group subsidiary Merkur Gaming US, through its local games development studio Sunshine Games, reports that the first ever NIGA exhibition and conference to be held in Las Vegas was a hometown success for the company.

The National Indian Gaming Association event at the Las Vegas Convention Center in late April saw Merkur display a new range of 10 games “made in America, by Americans and for Americans”.

Eight of these titles came from Vegas-based Sunshine Games and two from High 5 Games, which is based in New York.

Reporting an enthusiastic response from visitors, the Gauselmann subsidiary sees NIGA 2018 as “a significant forward step in the development of Merkur Games US as a top-level games producer in the US market”.

Merkur Gaming US CEO, Charles Hiten, said: “The figures show that NIGA in Las Vegas was a major success, in terms of both exhibitors and visitors.

“For us, the show was a chance to show the high level of products that we are bringing to the US and it was both exciting and gratifying to receive the overall high levels of positive reaction that we received.”
