North American is one of the most important markets for the global gambling industry. Harald Neumann, NOVOMATIC Chairman, and Thomas Graf, NOVOMATIC Chief Technology Officer, welcomed Ernest L. Stevens, the most important representative of the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA), to the headquarters in Gumpoldskirchen, where NOVOMATIC gaming terminals are manufactured and exported worldwide. The Association represents approximately 250 Indian tribes operating casinos in North America and is therefore one of the most important customers of the Lower Austria Technology Group. With a turnover of about 100 billion euros, the United States is the strongest market for the gaming industry. A substantial part of this market consists of approximately 250 Indian tribes, which operate gaming facilities in 29 different states and are represented by Ernest L. Stevens. "It is an absolute honor to welcome Ernest L. Stevens to Gumpoldskirchen and give him an idea of our production. The National Indian Gaming Association is one of the most important organisations in the United States and an excellent partner for NOVOMATIC," said Neumann. "NOVOMATIC products are known in the United States for their cutting-edge technology, high quality and safety, so it is very interesting for me to visit the company's headquarters in Lower Austria," said the NIGA Reprensentant. After this visit, the delegation will move to London for ICE Totally Gaming, the most important gambling fair in the world where again this year NOVOMATIC will present the latest innovations and technologies in a stand of over 5,000 m².
