GTECH G2 Unveils Player-centric Product Updates and Hosts Executive Gala at EiG

New bingo, poker, casino and minigames released this month as GTECH introduces its interactive gaming group to the igaming industry

GTECH G2 will feature major software releases for its bingo, poker, casino and minigames products when the four igaming software developers that comprise GTECH’s igaming division – Boss Media, Finsoft, St Minver and Dynamite Idea – exhibit together under one brand, GTECH G2, at the European iGaming conference (EiG) in Copenhagen this week. Upholding the tradition started by Boss Media, G2’s executive gala on opening night will be the social highlight of the conference.

“We’re looking forward to introducing our new interactive gaming division to the igaming industry,” said Atul Bali, CEO of GTECH G2. “We are already providing interactive gaming products to some of our European and South American lottery customers and, with the combined resources of our interactive gaming acquisitions and GTECH’s global market leadership of the lottery industry, we will be leading the convergence of the igaming and lottery industries."
“We’re really excited to be showcasing our products as a group in Copenhagen,” said Dominic Mansour. “EiG marks the debut of our Games Studio, our internal innovation and game creation centre. It brings together founding members from Dynamite Idea and Boss Media to ensure the highest level of creativity and new concepts and is responsible for creating ideas from scratch into innovative market leading games.”

GTECH G2 provides an end-to-end solution for igaming operators, providing bingo, poker, casino and minigames accessible from one account, one wallet and managed through one Gaming Management System. This month, GTECH G2 is releasing a series of major software releases.

An addition of seven new minigames and slot games (Hot Pursuit, Luxor Temple, Rockin´ Fruits, Irish Magic, Hells Bells, Burning Ocean, Spot of Luck) have been added to the already extensive GTECH G2 games portfolio.

“Operators are finding that minigames, or side games, provide an excellent additional revenue stream,” said Simon Caddy, founder of Dynamite Idea and now Head of GTECH G2’s Games Studio creative think tank which will be launched during EiG in Copenhagen. “As part of GTECH G2 now, we have more resources to develop new games and more operators have access to them.”

GTECH G2 will present a major update to its bingo software at EiG this week as well as the launch of the Games Studio and the latest casino software update which integrates tournaments with the Gaming Management System.

“We are very much looking forward to launching our dynamic portfolio,” said Mery Blomqvist, Head of Marketing and PR at GTECH G2. “And we’re really looking forward to socializing with our VIPs at our Executive Gala party which this year will be held on site at Tivoli Gardens.”
