Positioned as the leading company of the international video bingo sector, Ortiz Gaming is preparing a complete exposition of its technology for ICE Totally Gaming at ExCel centre, in London, from February 7–9. Ortiz Gaming’s performance will offer previews of the gaming revolution planned for this year, as well as exhibit the products that have positioned the company at the top of the ranking.

During G2E 2016, Ortiz Gaming has conquered the position of best Video Bingo distributor internationally, how will ICE Totally Gaming help you surpass this achievement?
It is an honor to be held in such high regard. Our goal is to keep moving forward by focusing on technology and industry trends. ICE is a great show to quantify our position internationally, as well as reflect on where we have come from and our plans for the future.
As this year’s targets remain a secret so far, would you share a preview on Ortiz Gaming’s performance at ICE Totally Gaming?
At ICE this year we will feature more of our “New Concept” in video bingo, which has reinvented the Video Bingo industry.
We kept the original look of success Electronic Bingo in 4/3 format, keeping the bingo cards in the center of the screen, where the emotion of the game is, but moved all other elements of the game to the side of the screen. With no “stretched” elements, simply redesigned screens, and re-positioned elements. It’s a simple idea, but totally revolutionary. It brings a new and exciting feeling to video bingo.

What will be the priorities of Ortiz Gaming during this year’s event? What’s the biggest bet for the company in 2017?
One of our fastest growing divisions has been Ortiz Interactive. This year at ICE, showers will see our advancements and diversity of products under this branch. There is such versatility in the interactive space, and this division has been able to deliver nearly custom products for around the globe.

Ortiz Gaming is a top ten industry leader, do you think the contact with the public plays a special role on the company’s development?
Of course; our brand is also globally recognised, many markets in Latin America ask for our games by name “Ortiz”. This brand recognition has driven us to grow our B2C outreach and get to know players. In the end, we are focused on the player excitement and happiness, and this insight comes from engaging with our community of fans.
What are the next targeted markets for Ortiz Gaming’s reinvention of the Bingo sector?
Ortiz Gaming is a global company, as new markets open we are ready to grow and enter these industries. In the meantime 2017 will be a year of steady expansion and growth. We are focusing on product development and the needs of the markets we already serve.
