Martin Sánchez, CEO at Recreativos Martin, noted: “We believe that today is starting a new era in the way gaming machines work. We have carefully studied the solution offered by Okto and have high expectations.
“We are aware of what it means to be first and we are also aware of our vocation for leadership in innovation. We are sure that Okto.Wallet has come to stay. If we add to that the confidence that we have already had in Jackpot Systems as a technology provider for years, we are making sure that our bet is correct and we have anticipated a process that will spread quickly.
