Las Vegas, NV, Nov. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Galaxy Gaming, Inc. (OTC: GLXZ) the world's largest independent producer of casino table games and enhanced systems, announced today its expansion into the Republic of Ireland. Several casinos throughout Ireland are now operating the Company's proprietary table game products.
Galaxy Gaming first entered the British Isles region in 2011 with its purchase of the assets formerly owned by Prime Table Games UK. The purchase established Galaxy Gaming as the proprietary table game leader in England, Scotland and Wales and subsequently, the Company has been increasing its market share not only within the United Kingdom, but also throughout Europe. The Republic of Ireland, a member of the European Union, currently authorizes limited legal casino table games. However, lawmakers have drafted legislation to expand Ireland's casino gaming industry. Local authorities have reported they believe the legislation may be approved sometime in 2015.
"Expanding into Ireland is a natural extension to our current business operations in the nearby UK countries," commented Robert Saucier, Galaxy Gaming's Chief Executive Officer. "While the existing Irish market remains relatively undeveloped, the new legislation, when approved, is expected to foster the growth of their gaming industry. Having an existing strong presence in the surrounding region, combined with establishing this early presence in Ireland, should provide us with a substantial advantage in expanding our market share over any future potential competitors. We look forward to a continuing long and mutually profitable business relationship on the Emerald Isle," added Mr. Saucier.
