The UK companies Barcrest Group and Mecca Bingo Limited have partnered on offering Barcrest's Iconic sb server-based gaming action to users.
Iconic gives the ability to stream Barcrest Group’s latest games inventory to Mecca Bingo players, along with a system that empowers changes to the game mix in order to match player demographics. The system has a spread of functionality that includes software download and verification, centralised configuration of terminals, event reporting and logging and accountancy.
Mark Jepp, head of amusement operations for Mecca, said: “Mecca Bingo is delighted with the performance of Iconic sb. With Mecca staff now fully trained in the capabilities of the system, we are looking forward to maximising our machine income as a result.”
Having successfully accomplished a British launch for the product, Barcrest has ambitions to spread the net to Continental Europe, a spokesman said. A video lottery system is planned to deliver a comprehensive library of top-performing video slots games.
The first country on the target list will be the Czech Republic, closely followed by Slovakia, in a new venture between Barcrest Group and Czech partner Jamp.
Games in the library include Ooh Aah Dracula, Big Bucks, Extra Ball Bingo, Mummy Money, Neptune's Treasure, Roulette Royale, Tooty Fruity and World Poker Tour Challenge. A constant stream of new titles will be made available to keep the offer fresh and exciting for players.
Karel Hamr, Sales Manager for Jamp, commented: “We are very excited by this new venture with Iconic sb. In the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Barcrest Group already enjoys a reputation for great games and reliable technology so we are building on existing success.”
