Abhinay Bhagavatula G3 Pulse Podcast: Reflections on ICE

News Abhinay Bhagavatula G3 Pulse Podcast: Reflections on ICE, Quixant’s launch of innovative new solutions at the show, and expectations for 2023 Abhinay, how did the ICE 2023 show play out on the Quixant booth in London? ICE 2023 was an incredibly successful show for Quixant and it was impressive to see the whole industry back with a vengeance. This was an exhibition in which we saw a lot of interest both from our land-based customers and from the online sector, which is expanding as the land-based and online markets continue to converge. Plus, as regulations open more markets, sports betting is also a key element in that expansion, with developments in the US market carrying through into Europe. This was highlighted at ICE where we saw a large presence from the sports betting side of the industry. How did London compare to Vegas? There had been a lot of conversation at G2E about the potential for a slowdown of the markets due to the recession on the horizon. However, conversations at ICE were wholly positive and demonstrate just how strong gaming markets are holding up, and how many are looking forward to further expansion. This was the overall sentiment of customers at ICE, as they looked to new markets opening up across Europe in the near future. The EMEA market does not appear to be slowing down any time soon. You launched your latest QMAX product at ICE – a premium Gaming platform powered by Intel. How was this launch received - especially as you’re a business that’s historically been more aligned with AMD? As a technology company we want to put our customers at the forefront of innovation and Intel's strategy will help us to achieve those goals. Our [...]

Quixant’s LatAm gaming and sports betting market focus ahead of G2E

News Quixant’s LatAm gaming and sports betting market focus ahead of G2E Patricia Souto Rial – VP Business Development - Spain/LatAm, Quixant – G3 Pulse podcast As a supplier to the gaming and sports betting market how do you best support a continent that covers 19 million sq.km and a population of 656 million, and provide products and offerings which are tailored to the specific needs of the market? Patricia Souto Rial, VP of Business Development for Spain and Latin America at Quixant. Patricia, what are the most important and most valuable markets for Quixant, and which of the markets - for example Mexico, Colombia, Brazil - do you see as having the most growth potential? The Latin market as a whole is extremely important for Quixant offering very exciting opportunities. The Gaming market is our bread and butter - it is all we do - which means we are focused purely upon supporting customers in countries like Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and not to forget Brazil as you say, which is an exciting opportunity with the incoming sports betting regulations. The Quixant LatAm team is focusing on developing this market with a keen understanding of the particular complexities and specific requirements necessary to support the gaming industry in LatAm. What’s Quixant’s footprint in the region? What local expertise does Quixant boast in LatAm? And how do you cover such a vast area - I imagine your supply chain has to be ‘on point’? Quixant is already present within the Latin American market and has been continuously growing business within the region in recent years. Markets with a strong appetite for growth, such as Colombia, Puerto Rico, Brazil and Mexico, have presented opportunities for Quixant to support local OEM [...]

Duncan Faithfull G3 Pulse Podcast: Game-changing Technology

News Duncan Faithfull G3 Pulse Podcast: Game-changing Technology – Delivering the ultimate player experience. Quixant is to unveil a range of new Intel-based products at ICE London that build upon the launch of its new cabinet range G3 speaks to Quixant’s Chief Commercial Officer, Duncan Faithful, about the ongoing supply chain issues that continue to linger from the pandemic, but also the optimism that’s driving the gaming industry forward into 2023 and towards a spectacular ICE London exhibition. Looking back to 2022, how would you summarise the year for Quixant? I think 2022 was a year of transition - and from the point of view of the industry, the two big gaming shows - ICE and G2E - mirrored the developments that we saw across the year. ICE London in April was an event dominated by online and sports betting, and for Quixant, it was also the first time in many years that we didn’t take a booth, but observed from the show floor. Fast forward six months to G2E, however, and it was a completely different experience. Despite the fact that all of our new product development (NPD), which we will see at ICE this year, wasn’t on show at G2E, the nervousness from ICE in April had been replaced by optimism. Our booth was rammed and the attitude from customers was: “lets go for it!” The industry is raring to go, but have the supply issues that dogged us throughout the pandemic gone away yet? I think the industry is right to still be a bit cautious on that front. Having just been to Taiwan and talking to several suppliers in China, we are not out of the woods yet in terms of all of the component issues we’ve talked [...]

Abhinay Bhagavatula G3 Pulse Podcast: Reflections on G2E & Quixant’s turnkey cabinets

News Abhinay Bhagavatula G3 Pulse Podcast: Reflections on G2E, the state of the Gaming industry approaching 2023, the supply chain situation and the launch of Quixant's turnkey cabinets Abhinay Bhagavatula - EVP Gaming Business and CTO, Quixant – G3 Pulse podcast Quixant exhibited at G2E 2022 in Las Vegas - what are your impressions of the show - and of the market in general? The last couple of years have been challenging for everyone in the Gaming industry - including the gaming exhibitions. However, this year’s G2E was one of the best shows in recent times, which is remarkable considering the challenges the industry has faced. What I found most interesting about the event this year, was the industry reset that has taken place. We have seen surging demand in new and existing markets over the last 12 months and G2E confirmed this trend. It was great to see that Gaming has reclaimed its pivotal role in mainstream entertainment - especially in Las Vegas - where business is overwhelmingly positive right now. For a long time G2E has been a barometer used by Gaming suppliers, distributors, and operators to define their roadmap for the future, and it was fantastic to engage in positive conversations once again on the exhibition floor. We look forward to a very positive period of growth as we head into 2023. At the show Quixant launched a new range of cabinets - Quantum and Qinetic - what’s the background to the launch of the cabinets, and the reason for creating cabinet hardware at this time? Conversations with customers have increasingly focused on sports betting, land-based and retail markets. Quixant’s new Quantum range of products services the VLT and EGM side of the market, while Qinetic focuses on [...]
