New casinos in Panama and the Dominican Republic in the fourth quarter of 2018 played their part in the revenue surge.
Good results were also recorded from the operating activities in Italy despite a tax increase while bingo locations in Spain, both from the traditional game and the electronic version, also contributed. Investment in Andalusia and Cantabria looked positive. There was a general improvement in the business in Mexico.
More than 4,000 machines had been sold by the manufacturing sector under the Unidesa brand, notably the new Java’s Galaxy and Treasury models, while the arcades AWP Sensation was showing good results.
