Building on earlier announcements this year, Inspired Gaming Group plc (Inspired), the leading provider of Open Server-Based Gaming (Open SBGTM), is continuing to transform the landscape of the Asian casino market through the supply of its technology. Inspired has secured a new $1 million deal for the deployment of its Open SBGTM software platform in Asia and is also investing a further $5.5 million in Open SBGTM terminals and other casino gaming terminals into the region.

Inspired has sold an additional 250 server-based gaming licenses and related multi-content terminals, which will lead to a significant deployment of Open SBGTM technology over the next 12 months. The investment and installation of multi-content terminals will also bring long term revenues for the company.

Inspired first expanded into Asia in April of this year with the sale of 50 server-based gaming licenses and related multi-content terminals to SHL. Their success led to additional orders for over 250 multi-content terminals in the following two months. This third order brings the number of Inspired terminals sold to Asia on the Open SBGTM platform to over 500.

Anne de Kerckhove, Managing Director, Inspired Gaming International, commented: “This announcement is further testament to the appeal and demand for our Open SBGTM platform. Inspired is leading the way in the transformation of the Asian casino market through the supply of our technology and this is a significant step in our strategy for international expansion.”

Tim Shepherd, Managing Director SHL, added: “We were very impressed with the performance of the multi-content terminals and Open SBGTM platform and this new agreement will allow us to run fully digital floors in a number of casinos, enabling us to monitor and fix machines remotely, update content at our discretion and change stakes and prizes to produce the best revenues.”

Norman Crowley, co-CEO Inspired Gaming Group, concluded: “Our experience around the world, coupled with the announcement of this strategically important investment, means Inspired is fast becoming a significant player in the Asian casino market.”

Inspired go environmental friendly

Inspired Gaming Group plc (Inspired), the leading player in the Open Server-Based Gaming (Open SBGTM) market, today announces plans that will see a large scale overhaul of its vehicle fleet in an effort to be more environmentally friendly. The firm is looking to reduce carbon emissions by between 150-300 tonnes over the next 18 months through a series of initiatives including the introduction of BioPower cars, alternative transport methods, and a staff incentive scheme.

Part of Inspired’s plan to drastically reducing their carbon footprint is a consultation with the Energy Saving Trust (EST). Following recent discussions, EST is now in the process of putting forward recommendations to Inspired on where changes and improvements can be implemented.

Inspired is looking to further review its choice of vehicles on the company fleet. The firm will this week take delivery of two Saab 93 BioPower cars, as well as asking a number of potential suppliers to make their recommendations for suitable vehicles powered by alternative fuels or hybrids. In addition, trials of a number of options, including motorbikes in London and electric-powered cars, are currently being undertaken.

Meanwhile, Inspired has just agreed a staff incentive scheme that allows employees to trade down to vehicles with lower emissions or to drive vehicles powered by alternative fuels or hybrids. This scheme provides the staff at Inspired a cash incentive to take a green car, and also provides an opportunity for the management to contribute some of those savings to charity.

Dave Wilson, CEO Managed Services, Inspired commented: “As part of Inspired’s commitment to reducing emissions in whatever way possible, we are delighted to collaborate with the EST, and take its advice on how we can make our fleet even greener. I look forward to seeing these environmentally beneficial changes implemented in the near future.”
