777 Deluxe Eldorado gaming room has been operating in Oradea for more than 3 years, representing the position of Eldorado 777 group’s flagship, while being among the most popular gaming rooms – if not the most popular – in Oradea. This room, together with the Eldorado 777 Poker Club located upstairs, have gained the leading position in the region, and by the continuous improvement of service quality in the next 1-2 years, it wishes to become one of the most significant gaming rooms in Romania.
Due to Winner Club rooms, you have had a significant relevance in this region, even before the opening of the Deluxe room. Wasn’t it risky to open a new room in Oradea, with a new name?
Owners have always dreamed of that moment, when our group would obtain all the bases and recognition necessary to aim at a higher level and open a room offering premium services. We managed to find an ideal location for this goal, so everything was at our disposal to open Eldorado 777 Deluxe room in the center of Oradea, on the pedestrian street.
How hard was the launching?
I would say that the initial period was not so hard, but rather full of challenges, because this room is the largest in several respects, includes more devices, with a new name, so we expected a new clientèle because the existing rooms, Club Winner brand, already had a regular clientèle formed.
With the Deluxe room we’ve progressed step by step, and we tried every time to introduce something new.
Such a novelty was the Power Club.
That’s right. The opening of the power club meant a significant event in the life of Deluxe room, as it was a completely new service through which we were able to address another target group. Now we have reached the stage where the poker club is living in symbiosis with the gaming room. The Poker Club operates as an independent unit, with its own program, individual promotions, but at the same time, its participate in the 2017 promotion, Millionaire Club.
You mentioned the promotions, but we must not forget that the Deluxe room is also very known for the parties organized. Why do you consider these events important?
There are people who believe in the power of parties, and ones who don’t. Opinions differ in this respect even among administrators of rooms. We have organized parties in the Deluxe room from the very beginning, and we want to continue this tradition. Guests feel good, there are many guests who recall our events. This is what we believe in.
In addition, we believe that promotion is much more welcoming if it ends with a nice event.
Also, seasonal celebrations are just as important to us as the anniversaries of the Deluxe room.
Which party brings you the most beautiful memories?
It’s very difficult to choose only one party. Probably the party of the 3rd anniversary last August, attended by many players, even pedestrians on the street were involved in our spectacular programs. Another memorable event was the Halloween party, where the guests came dressed in different costumes, and we were in charge of the “terrifying” decorations.
This year’s party season was launched with a carnival party, to which we added the three day Carnival poker tournament, with prizes amounting to RON 80,000. This party was really memorable due to the frenetic show, and the room was overpopulated during the poker contest, which means a huge success of the poker team.
I should have mentioned among the first the closing event in December of the Space Project 2016 promotion, where the top prize worth RON 285,000 found its owner, and the event was broadcast live in all 26 gaming rooms.
If I’m not mistaken, even now you have a current promotion, independent of the Millionaire Club promotion.
“Deluxe Mini Run” promotion was launched in mid-January, and the final draw will take place on April 12th at the Easter party, where we will find out the lucky winner of the Mini vehicle. This promotion is intended exclusively to Deluxe customers, and it takes place together with the Poker Club.
Do you plan the opening of Deluxe rooms in other cities too?
Of course, our goal is to enter with the Deluxe brand in as many big cities as possible, which implies a huge preparation. More often than not, the hardest is to find a suitable location. However, if we open a new Deluxe room, under no circumstances we will decrease the level of services offered in Oradea. One thing is certain: we have the commitment that we need in the future.
Encouraged by the results of the Space Project campaign in 2016, in 2017 the group Eldorado 777, headquartered in Oradea, is expecting us with a new complex marketing campaign, whereby their stated intention is to win again the recognition of the basic players, namely to enter the class of the most important gaming organizers in Romania.
You have set a high standard for the company by the Space Project promotion in 2016. How can this goal to conquer the space be exceeded?
It’s really very hard. Actually, it’s impossible. When we invented the promotion entitled Space Project at the end of 2015, that was the next question I asked: How do we exceed this promotion in 2017? This question accompanied us in the early months of 2016, when we saw that many of our players greeted with distrust our great prize at the end of the year. Clearly this was a good experience because it was a constant topic among our players, and determined us to improve our communication method. At the basis of the coherent messages transmitted by our colleagues in every room, respectively through all our communication media, is a serious team work, thus our messages reached their exact destination.
We can now say it was a good decision for us to take risks, even if our colleagues and sometimes our players have encountered challenges, and last but not least, in this way we were able to introduce an unusual twist in the gaming range.
So how can it be exceeded?
It doesn’t have to be exceeded. Of course, there have been many ideas since then that, one day, we would put in practice, following a well prepared plan; maybe we could have a huge success with them, but for the moment, in 2017, we remain “on the ground”. We believe in our motto: winners will receive what we have promised. Perhaps the phrase sounds cliché, but we take it seriously, be it jackpot gains, promotional prizes or the high quality of our services.
This is what we have in mind in 2017 too, within our Millionaire Club promotion.
What does this promotion involve?
First, within this promotion we want to strengthen our player loyalty to our company. Of course we will offer valuable prizes in 2017 as well, because they are the main engine of attracting players, however we want to offer our customers a sense of belonging, the “Club” experience. The Millionaire Club is more than just an annual promotion, because some of its elements will surely be found in 2018 as well.
This sounds more like a long term strategy than simple marketing promotion.
Indeed, we believe in sustainable development, and this thinking, this spirit played a major role in developing the promotion, but will also have an impact on renewing our loyalty program, on developing a casino-type system or on our on-line interfaces, and certainly on future investment.
We develop step by step, and we hope this happens based on a clear concept, so it will be met with satisfaction by our players too.
The promotion was launched on February 1st, and our rooms were joined again at regional level. We consider it is important that unanimous marketing communication has an impact equally in every town and in every room. This unanimity is very important from the point of view of the image formed about us, namely in terms of coherent communication from staff.
The only differences in 2017 compared to last year are that Cluj-Napoca municipality participates in the promotion as an independent city, therefore Cluj players have achieved a greater chance of winning because they participate in drawings for separate prizes.
Last year you have drawn VW Jetta and Passat vehicles. What final prizes can we expect this year?
Like in 2015, this year we chose the BMW Group models as well, but this time I opted for types with different values in each city. There are cities where the big prize is a BMW 7 series, in another city a BMW X1, but this year we have also included a Mini, which ensures diversity.
So you returned to the premium category.
Yes, that’s what we decided this year. But this doesn’t mean that we had problems with Volkswagen; we simply believe that Millionaire Club promotion deserves the premium category.
In 2016, we drawn a total of 18 Volkswagen vehicles, Jetta and Passat, and I am convinced that the winners were as satisfied with the vehicles won, as would be the winners of this year.
Last year, in addition to those 18 vehicles, I drew a large amount of cash, and we must not forget the final cumulative prize at the end of the year, which represented a fortune in itself.
In 2017 we will operate based on other concepts, but overall we will draw prizes with similar value.
Will we have a big final prize this year as well?
Everything is possible, but as I said, we have a new concept this year, which also covers the prizes, namely the frequency of draws. There are cities where we want to organize more draws than the three of last year.
Are there new investments expected for 2017?
Of course, we are always looking for new challenges, and our owners are very enterprising. We also have ongoing projects, but it is too early to give an opinion on this matter.
I can only say that currently works to develop a room in Oradea are in progress, whose reopening is expected around the same time as the publishing of this interview.

EGT announced the successful installation of a few new “curved” slots at Game World, at Bucharest Vitan Mall. This installation is only another addition to the successful portfolio of EGT slot machines that are already performing in the famous gaming hall. The machines delivered to Game World Romania in Bucharest Mall are P-42V Ups, marking the successful debut of the new multi-game mix Orange Collection from the Collection Series – a new generation of games. In addition, EGT Romania is adapting its business model in order better meet the needs of their clients, by this month’s opening of a Customer Care department. Read their piece and find our more about these topics.
One of the most interesting themes we chose for this issue is the increase in the use of online currency – bitcoin – in online gambling, some sites only allowing payments through this method; 2017 seems to be the year when Bitcoin goes mainstream in this industry. In other words, if virtual currency was only an option until now, from now on it might become the norm for online operators. Among the famous early adopters of Bitcoin in online gambling are names such as 5dimes and Bodog, but the number of websites that are already shifting towards this method of payment is growing exponentially.

Dear readers, we strongly believe that this is another top issue of our magazine, as you’re probably already expecting from us: with diverse topics and a total dedication to our mission to offer you useful information.
Sorry, this entry is only available in Română.
Former Dutch colony for almost 150 years, then conquered by the British in 1814 and gaining its independence in 1966, Guyana is the only country in South America with English as an official language, but it’s also the poorest country on the continent, with the smallest GDP per capita. Out of a total population of 750.000 people – mainly making a living out of agriculture -almost a third live in the capital of Georgetown.
Gambling in Guyana
Gambling is legal on the territory of this small South-American state, but it is not a priority for the government. In fact, games of chance are regulated by a law – Gambling Prevention Act – which was issued in 1902 and which has been slightly modified over time.
There is only one live casino in the country and it’s located in the capital. Guyana Princess Hotel and Casino covers 16.000 square meters which is exclusively dedicated to tourists (as Guyana people are not allowed to play) and the most popular games are roulette, poker or blackjack, with the casino displaying 16 table games and 250 operating slot machines. Nevertheless there is a provision in the law that is used by the Guyana people in order to enter themselves in the casino, and that is: if there is a hotel directly connected to the casino and one of the locals has rented a room here, even for a night, he can enter as a guest of the hotel to play in the casino, “eschewing” the law.
Over the last years the economy in Guyana gave signs of opening more widely to the outside, especially through tourism, and this thing began to have an influence on the standard of living of the population at large.
There is also an ongoing discussion and a war of ideas in this South-American country: a part of its population still believed that there is a need for liberalization for operating casinos in the country, subsequently followed by allowing locals to play, while others are against this and are not in favor of such an opening of the gambling sector towards the public, as the population could develop certain “inappropriate habits”.
At the moment that will mark the end of the debate and the emergence of a winner, who could lean towards gambling liberalization and extending them to the entire territory, only then we could truly talk about a gambling market in Guyana. A few years ago there was an attempt coming from the president, who argued in favor of relaxing the conditions for participation and license issuing, but the initiative lacked support from the political ground, and obviously from the people of Guyana.
Online in Guyana
Online games are not regulated at the moment, which means that is someone from Guyana wants to play online games he or she can only do so by accessing offshore online casino sites. These sites abound in numbers and they most of the times do accept players from the country.
Poker in Guyana
It is not that safe to play poker in the intimacy offered by your house if you are in Guyana. From the local news we see that there have often been raids to private housing places and that amateur poker players often get arrested. Still, poker has a tradition in this country, and one of the best local players, Victor Ramdin, is a professional player and member of Team Poker Stars Pro, having won a WPT title as well. He is now obviously a resident of the United States.
There is still one particularly interesting thing about the aforementioned things, concerning online games here, namely that you can play online poker on foreign sites. Approximately one third of the population of Guyana has access to the internet and, consequently, they can play poker or place bets on games, with the condition of having enough money in order to deposit. In this way, the online space is more secure, and if the state is willing to lose money by maintain the domain deregulated, he will continue to do so, even though the money could help the local economy.
When talking about Guyana it feels like travelling back in time in the Eastern Europe of the 80’s, and why not even in Romania. Old mentalities that being forcefully transmitted to the population and deregulation seen as part of the solution and not of the problem. Unfortunately, Guyana looks like a Third World country that does not want and cannot chance, because a change in this field could signal towards the population that they are heading towards an economic liberalism, which the country needs – for its 750.000 people. Let’s hope that over the years we will hear better news about it.
