With its versatile and cost-effective multi-game products, Latvia-based slot manufacturer DLV has slowly but surely been building its presence in Asia. The company’s latest cabinet, dubbed Hybrid, will make its regional debut at this month’s G2E Asia. Hybrid features two new 4-level mystery progressive jackpots: the Dragon jackpot, designed specifically for Asian markets, and the baseball-themed Vollinstars.

DLV was founded in 1994 and initially focused on its home turf in the Baltic region, but gradually expanded its presence into international markets including the European Union, non-EU countries in Eastern Europe, Central America and South America. In early 2010, the company made its maiden foray into Asia with the first of several installations in Cambodia.

In Cambodia and worldwide, DLV has enjoyed considerable success with Jewel Jackpot, a progressive jackpot system featuring ten games and various themes. The company continued the popular series first with Jewel Jackpot 2, and more recently with Jewel Jackpot 3, which has been expanded to include 15 games and will also be highlighted at G2E Asia.

Jewel Jackpot 3, the latest instalment in the popular Jewel Jackpot series, has been expanded to include 15 games.

DLV Chairman Mihail Volokotkin believes the Asian market, long dominated by the major international slot suppliers, is now hungry for greater choice, creating opportunities for new brands, including his own. DLV has good insight into the needs of slot operators— particularly the needs for operational and cost flexibility. As well as manufacturing slot equipment, the company runs slot halls in its home market and in South America. It also assists with the running of operations in Asia

DLV prides itself on the competitive pricing and technical robustness of its products, as well as its speed and flexibility in responding to clients’ needs. Mr Volokotkin also stresses the importance the company places on conducting thorough market research and keeping up with evolving circumstances. “In each of our innovations we try to offer the latest technology while catering to the characteristics and trends of each market and incorporating the valuable feedback from our product focus groups.”
