(Exclusive interview).- Focus Gaming News talked with Alfastreet’s sales director, Albert Radman, about the great impression the brand left in Colombia.
After a successful event in Colombia, FADJA 2016, Alfastreet is ready to explore in depth its gaming potential in the Latin American industry with its latest technology and services.
This is not your first time around at the Colombian show. Can you share with us the benefits of exhibiting in this 18° edition?
It’s a very important exhibition for one of the strongest markets in Latin America. The Colombian players are really keen on electronic table games, especially roulette and horse-racing, so it’s imperative that all the major producers are present at the show. The attendance was very good, maybe a little less people than previous years, but all the important ones were present.
What feedback did you receive from visitors and clients?
This year has marked a premiere of the Royal Derby for the FADJA show in Bogota and it was easily the most visited attraction of the show. Along with our best-seller R8 and the compact roulette R6, we had a very busy show, with all the major operators recognising the brand’s superior quality, user friendliness and attention to details. We are satisfied to see that our efforts are awarded with very good sales results.
Are you planning on exhibiting in other Latin American shows this year?
Of course. All of these markets are very important as far as sales are concerned, so Alfastreet will be present in all major exhibitions in Latin America such as Panama, Argentina, Peru, Costa Rica and so on.
Alfastreet is a company committed to excel in technology. Which projects are you planning to develop in the near future?
As you know, the company has always distinguished itself for breaking the boundaries in technical development, so there are many things being tried and tested as we speak, from our brand new slot line, to various spin-offs on the Royal Derby platform, not forgetting the brand new online connection system, that will expand the possibility of playing machines on the casino floor.

Alfastreet is based in Slovenia. What do you think of the evolution of the gaming industry in this country?
Slovenia has a relatively small gaming market, that one could describe as a regular European market, with limited possibilities of expansion. The casinos are well equipped, which is a good proving ground for Alfastreet products. Anyway, our company has always been focused on the “World” markets, producing machines that are now found in almost 200 countries worldwide.
Finally, what is your take regarding the current perspectives in the Colombian market in particular and in the Latin American market in general?
We see a lot of potential in the Colombian market, after a couple of years with a somewhat slower growth, I believe it is now again showing its full potential and we are looking forward to the future, when Alfastreet’s market share will increase significantly. The situation on other Latin American markets is positive, our brand is a clear leader as far as electronic table games are concerned and there are some very interesting markets opening up for further expansion.
