Turbo Games’ Head of Sales, Vadim Potapenko, has expressed his gratitude to the Ukrainian company’s partners for their support following Russia’s invasion.
Commenting ahead of CasinoBeats Summit 2022 next week, Potapenko stated the firm’s intention on focusing on Ukrainian operators and claimed competition is the “best motivation for introducing something new to players”.
What makes CasinoBeats Summit stand out as an event?
As always, high level management comes to SBC events, so it’s easy to meet and discuss potential cooperation with decision makers. From the point of view of business and productivity, this factor is always determining in choosing the event for participation.
Turbo Games planned and was prepared to exhibit at ICE this year, but, unfortunately, the Russian war in Ukraine made adjustments that forced us to cancel the participation. Therefore, we can no longer miss other events, especially when it’s about SBC and Malta.
What role does Malta play for your company in the iGaming ecosystem?
Malta is the centre of the gaming industry, where top projects and companies operate. In this case, the event is a great way to contact and start cooperation with such projects. Everybody knows that personal meetings and acquaintances always work better than online.
We are still too young to voice real cases, but we are already on the way to realise them.
What industry innovation will capture the most attention in the next 12 months?
Competition is the best motivation for introducing something new to players. Taking into account the fact that there is a huge variety of providers nowadays, it will not be a surprise if we get acquainted with the new mechanics or features in games and the new interaction between the casino-streamer player very soon.
If we talk about all casino games, then, of course, Megaways, crash games and buy bous games will have the biggest impact in the near future. In my opinion, these three types are the most popular and under discussion now.
What core challenges do you help solve for your customers/partners?
Absolutely new content that blurs the line between gambling and casual gaming.
In Turbo games players like the combination of nostalgia and recognisable mechanics with fresh vibes, as well as the ability to cashout. So the player decides which win to take or go to the end. These factors distinguish us among other exhibitors at the event.
Who have you especially enjoyed working with over the past year (partner/client)?
It is difficult to single out one partner or client, because this year we, as a Ukrainian company, have seen much support from all over the world and from many projects, who took us onboard or accelerated product integration.
As I tell everyone directly, and I will say again, the best help is new cooperation and new tasks. This is what helps our team to become even stronger in such a difficult time when the whole country is at war. We express our gratitude to each partner.
You will be able to see more examples of our successful collaborations by yourself a bit later, but now I want to pay the attention of operators, especially of Ukrainian origin, that we have released the game Bayraktar, which has been standing on top among operators and players since its release in the mid of April.
What are you hoping to learn from the conference at CasinoBeats Summit 2022?
First of all, as from the offline event I expect fruitful networking and, as a consequence, knowledge about new trends, insights or directions.
Furthermore, it would be useful to hear the feedback about new markets. The main goal is to improve the company’s product and understand one more time that players like it.
