Making use of the last year’s lockdowns, Meridian Leisure Services designed two machines, Megaways Lotto B3A and Super Lotto, which are currently assisting its customers in bouncing back from Covid restrictions. Richard Basing and Sean Tee, directors at Meridian, outlined the company’s plans following its merger with Premier Gaming, which has seen Meridian expand its sales operation nationally, and ready to launch a new product in Megaways Lotto which will soon be available for all operators to purchase.
Meridian Leisure Services has announced its plans to offer Megaways Lotto B3A nationally following its merger with Premier Gaming.
Designed in tandem with Storm Games Technology, Megaways Lotto B3A is the first machine in its category to hit the market since 2018, containing a compendium of 22 games featuring the Megaways casino slot system.
“We have been a very successful operator over the last 30 years and following the merger with Premier Gaming we are now expanding our sales operation nationally,” Richard Basing, a director at Meridian, told Coinslot. “The lockdowns gave us the ideal opportunity to create two machines which are helping our customers bounce back incredibly well. We have teamed up with Storm Games Technology to produce “Super Lotto” and Megaways Lotto B3A brands,” he explained.
The outcome are the two exciting new launches. “Megaways are extremely popular games online at the moment and mixed with a number of the proven classic Storm Games back catalogue games – it’s a winner all round.”
With the Lotto B3A about to be rolled out, the next to market will be Super Lotto, but that, as Basing notes, “is under wraps ready to launch and obviously Coinslot will be the first to know!” The signals for operators are pretty impressive though: Basing reported that Megaways in the new cirrus cabinet has been site tested, and is currently proving to uplift cashboxes by 34 percent.
Both Super Lotto and Megaways Lotto B3A will continue to help Meridian’s customers make a comeback from the difficulties of the last 18 months, and that bounce back effect has already been making its mark for operators across Britain as he explained: “Our seasonal arcades have responded really well with a significant uplift on the 2019 figures – partly due to staycations!!”
But it doesn’t stop there. “We also have numerous products on the horizon moving into 2022 which is creating exciting times ahead,” Basing said.
No conversation at the moment however would be complete without touching upon the subject of supply chain issues, and Basing is very conscious of the market conditions. “Within all areas of operating we are well aware of the rising cost of fuel,” he postured. “The lack of redemption tickets and prizes over the summer period could have caused an issue and the only measures we can put into place is to buy in bulk.”
Buying in bulk, and despatching in bulk, it seems, as Meridian rolls out its new machines to market
