Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Regal Gaming and Leisure, part of the Gauselmann Group’s portfolio of leading UK-facing brands, has appointed Rod Runnalls to the newly created post of Head of Business and Product Intelligence.

Rod is having more than 30 years of gaming machine experience with The Rank Group, Ladbrokes, Leisure Link and MHG. He joins Regal in what is a critical post lockdown period for both the gaming machine and pub sectors.

Looking forward to the challenge, which follows a 12-month consultancy role, during which he was instrumental in developing and delivering the reportage required to turn raw data into meaningful customer information, Rod believes that Regal is best equipped of all the industry operators to deliver value on behalf of its customers.

“Investment into connectivity and data analysis has formed the cornerstone of Regal’s successful growth strategy over the last 24-months and the business continues to invest significant levels of Capex to ensure that all digital AWPs are connected to the Gauselmann Group’s industry leading MARS system,” Rod said.

“Thanks to the MARS system we have the ability to share a wide range of data with our customers in real-time, including the number of machines that are switched on and working, as well as the number being played and transmitting data. We are also collating daily data for customers on how much physical cash is going through their estate of machines – by site and by position – which in turn allows us to understand whether all machines within a venue are trading and to what levels,” he added.

The benefits of the MARS digitally connected estate was put into sharp focus during reopening when Regal was able to track and analyse machine performance as pubs began trading over 4 and 5 July.

“We know that on the opening weekend we saw an average of 35 percent of our digital machine estate on and being played. More interestingly we were seeing these machines generating 48 percent of the total pre-lockdown levels of cash-in and 51 percent of the VTP. By the end of the opening week the proportion of active machines had risen to 45 percent, with the cash-in levels increasing on a daily basis, factors which bode well for the continued growth of pub machine income,” he said.

“Rod brings a wealth of experience to our business and we are confident that he will help us to leverage the investment we have made and continue to make in order to deliver for our customers by driving machine profitability through analysis of the data from Regal’s connected digital estate,” Andy Bell, Finance Director of Regal Gaming and Leisure, said.

Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) Chairman and CEO Alejandro H. Tengco on Saturday hailed Bloomberry Resorts Corporation for its latest luxury development, the Solaire Resort North, which he said is an instant landmark destination in Quezon City.

During the formal opening of the second Solaire-branded leisure and entertainment property in Metro Manila, Mr. Tengco said Solaire Resort North “marks a new era not only for the Philippine gaming industry but also for the tourism industry.”

“This will definitely become a leisure and entertainment destination in this part of Metro Manila,” he said.

Situated on a 1.5-hectare site in Quezon City, Solaire Resort North is the first and only five-star integrated resort and casino to serve northern Metro Manila and adjacent provinces.

Mr. Tengco also noted the huge efforts made by Bloomberry to bring the project to life.

“This jewel was not created overnight; It took years of meticulous planning, hundreds if not thousands of workers toiling day and night, immense resources poured into it, to bring us this development that is a class of its own,” the PAGCOR chief said.

According to Mr. Tengco, by raising the bar incredibly high, Solaire Resort North instantly becomes the benchmark upon which future integrated resorts will be measured against.

“For this we owe our gratitude to the vision and unwavering determination of Mr. Ricky Razon and his entire team,” he said.

“We at PAGCOR, just like Bloomberry Resorts Corporation, are continuously inspired by the hard work and commitment of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., to pursue projects like Solaire Resort North so that we can provide more jobs and better opportunities for our people, especially those in the tourism and leisure industries,” the PAGCOR chief added.

President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos led the Solaire Resort North’s inauguration. Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte also graced the event.

For his part, Bloomberry Resorts Corporation Chairman and CEO Enrique Razon Jr. said Solaire Resort North aims to elevate the entertainment experience in Quezon City.

“We hope to serve the burgeoning tourism demand north of Metro Manila and the nearby provinces that are enjoying rapid commercial and residential development. We hope to bolster economic activity in Quezon City by encouraging visitors – both Filipinos and foreigners — to explore and discover the city,” he said.

“We are bringing only the exceptional to Solaire North – from architecture, interiors, accommodation, gaming, cuisine, art, to entertainment,” Mr. Razon added.
