DLV’s new cabinet and multigame package provide further fuel for its steady Asia expansion
Latvia -based slot manufacturer DLV made its maiden foray into Asia in early 2010 with the first of several installations in Cambodia. It has since expanded its presence to the Philippines. And, of course, DLV has become a regular presence at G2E Asia in Macau, confident it’s only a matter of time before the major casinos in the city and around the continent get wise to the virtues of its versatile and cost-effective products.
On display at DLV’s G2E Asia stand at The Venetian Macao in May was its latest cabinet, the DIAMOND EXCEL, which, with its crisp dual 27-inch screens offers a decidedly enhanced vehicle for delivering its popular games packages. The new cabinet incorporates the company’s extensive observations and experience in the field in a bid to maximize player comfort and engagement.
DLV also showcased a new multi-game package, Diamond Ultra 2, the sequel to the 25-game Diamond Ultra, sporting new titles such as Alchemy’s Elements, Silver Hauberk, Mushroom Fable, Neanderthida and Winch & Wheels.
In addition to the new releases, a selection of tried-and-tested cabinets and games were on display. Existing cabinets in the company’s distinctive Diamond range include the DWS with dual 22-inch screens and the HD, which comes in both upright and slant-top configurations with a 24-inch display. Representing DLV’s varied multigame range was the Diamond Games Premium series, now in its eighth installment, and Vollinstars, a baseball-themed four-level mystery progressive jackpot.
In an exciting departure from its usual offerings, DLV demonstrated its online solution, DLVBET. Launched last year in Latvia, the DLVBET website currently offers bets on sports and political events 24/7. The company says it intends to add online versions of its slot games to the platform, and relishes the prospect of thereby reaching an expanded audience.
DLV has good insight into what players are looking for. In addition to manufacturing slot machines, it runs 50 slot halls in its home country. The bulk of gaming revenue in Latvia is generated by slot clubs operating in a highly competitive environment. By having to go head to head with major international manufacturers and operators in its domestic market, DLV has learned how to adapt its products to evolving market conditions.
DLV prides itself on its culture of innovation and the competitive pricing and technical robustness of its products, as well as its speed and flexibility in responding to clients’ needs. The company has come a long way since it was established 20 years ago. Its internationally certified machines are now purchased in 33 countries in Europe, Asia and South America.
