On September 8, the GAT Expo was held at the Sheraton Hotel in Bogotá. The event focused on the local market was the space chosen by NOVOMATIC to impress operators with a renovated NOVOMATIC Lounge that made a difference in terms of design and hospitality. An impressive XXL curved screen and first-class catering perfectly accompanied the launch of an outstanding product line.
The undisputed star of the event was the BLACK EDITION II cabinet series, the latest innovation in NOVOMATIC’s cabinet offering. These cabinets feature a modern design, perfectly angled full HD LCD displays, crisp game presentation, smoothly integrated toppers, a high-performance sound system, LED lighting with game-synchronized color effects, and a striking “Black Metro” finish. For GAT Expo, NOVOMATIC chose two of the models in the series: the BLACK EDITION II XL 3.32 cabinet, with three 32-inch screens, and the BLACK EDITION II 3.27, which features three 27-inch screens. Both cabinets offer an unparalleled gaming experience.
But innovation did not stop there. NOVOMATIC presented a triad of Linked Jackpots with 100% circular signage, which add a highly attractive differential to the recognized performance of this type of solutions in the Colombian market. The offer included the outstanding IMPERA LINK Series 2, which comprises 41 games and four jackpot levels, in perfect harmony with the BLACK EDITION II 3.27 cabinet. The Superia CASH CONNECTION Volume 2 linked jackpot was presented with its 15 LOCK ‘N’ WIN titles and four prize levels, complementing the BLACK EDITION II XL 3.32 cabinet. The fusion continued with the NOVO LINE CASH CONNECTION Edition 4, integrated with the MASTER SL 3.32 cabinet, offering a selection of 20 LOCK ‘N’ WIN titles and four prize levels.
Mónica Serrato, Commercial Coordinator for Central America and the Caribbean at NOVOMATIC Gaming Colombia, said: “When we planned our participation at the GAT – Bogotá, we set ourselves the objective of achieving a fresh and renewed offer. And we can be proud of the results: the spectacular BLACK EDITION II cabinets and the impressive appeal of the jackpots with 100% circular signage surprised and aroused the curiosity of all our customers.”
The event also marked the debut of the 2-level Progressive mix Superia CASH CONNECTION Volume 1 with ten exciting LOCK ‘N’ WIN titles and two jackpot levels, along with the FUNMASTER cabinet. This cabinet is an outstanding example of affordable engineering that optimizes the gaming offer in the venues.
Manuel Del Sol, CEO of NOVOMATIC Gaming Colombia, said: “We concluded the GAT 2023 event series with a comprehensive journey and a great variety of new products. We are extremely satisfied with the results, and personally, I would like to express my gratitude to the team for their constant professionalism and commitment. In addition, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank GAT Showcase and all our valued partners who helped make this event such a great success.”

iGaming Ontario to Request Proposals for a Centralized Self-Exclusion Solution in Early 2024
iGaming Ontario (iGO)’s vision is to lead the world’s best gaming market, which includes building a safer and more enjoyable experience for all igaming players in Ontario. To support players who decide to stop or take a break from gambling, iGO is going to issue a request for proposals (RFP) in early 2024 for a centralized self-exclusion solution that will enable a player to self-exclude from all Ontario regulated igaming operators in a single registration process.
Given the coordinated nature of the program across all regulated igaming operators, including Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG)’s igaming site, the successful bidder will be expected to develop and implement a centralized self-exclusion system that integrates with all operator systems and supports players’ self-exclusion registration, renewal, and reinstatement.
The following are iGO’s principles for centralized self-exclusion:
PLAYER FOCUSED – to provide options to players to support their commitment to take a break, to ensure processes are easy to use with minimal barriers and challenges, and to offer a seamless connection to relevant support services.
SUPPORTIVE – to deliver and execute the program in a non-stigmatized, non-judgmental manner; to be supportive and encouraging so that players feel good about registering in self-exclusion.
TRANSPARENT – to ensure expectations and consequences for players and Operators are clear and information is comprehensive and well-promoted.
SECURE – to ensure player information is securely protected and shared only with relevant employees for the purposes of administering the program.
ROBUST – to implement strong processes and procedures bolstered by secure, responsive, and highly available technology to enable an effective program that supports a player’s goals.
VIABLE – to develop systems and procedures that are manageable and practical for Operators to implement.
With these principles in mind, iGO is seeking interest from responsive and nimble companies that are able to build modern, innovative, secure cloud-based SaaS solutions that are high-profile, public-facing and critically important to building and maintaining the trust and confidence of a wide range of stakeholders. The successful bidder will partner with iGO on a multi-year program to develop best-in-class user experiences by leveraging modern, innovative technology.
Some features for an effective centralized self-exclusion solution include:
- Allowing players to create and manage their self-exclusion profile and including Know Your Client (KYC) identity verification
- Providing players with easy access to self-exclusion at any time including while they are gambling on any regulated igaming website
- Having registration, renewal, and reinstatement processes that are intuitive, simple and offer supporting information.
A $1 Million Amenity is Coming to the Former Buffet Space at Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi
Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi was one of several Coast casinos where the buffet didn’t return after the pandemic, and now that space is about to be repurposed.
Golden Nugget and DraftKings announced Tuesday the addition of a high-tech retail sportsbook area that will open in January.
“We are in the process of building that now,” said general manager Chett Harrison. The plan is to invest about $1 million and have the new area ready by early January for the playoff games and the Super Bowl.
“It’s going to be a grand place to watch a game,” he said.
A portion of the former buffet area will become the expansive DraftKings Sportsbook, with video walls and state-of-the-art LED screens that he said will be “the largest seamless screen on the Mississippi Gulf Coast”.
The viewing area will get about 40 of the big, comfortable lounge chairs, he said, and food and drinks will be available during the big games. Placing a bet will be streamlined by 17 live betting kiosks and five betting windows.
The sportsbook at Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi now is powered by DraftKings’ products and technology after the company bought out the former supplier of the services at the Biloxi casino.
Customers will have access to many of the same features available on the DraftKings Sportsbook app, allowing them to place same game parlays, prop bets and a variety of in-play betting options.
“Together with the leadership team at DraftKings, we are creating an amenity that patrons can enjoy, while offering sports fans an unparalleled sports betting experience at one of the top entertainment destinations in Mississippi,” Harrison said.
The current sportsbook and kiosks remain open while the new area is under construction. The new sportsbook will fill half of the former buffet at Golden Nugget Biloxi.
