The Royal Eagle Casino officially opened its doors to the public on Wednesday the 23rd of June 2021.
Located in Albania’s capital Tirana, the casino is the second to open in the city in less than a year and follows the opening of Grand Casino Tirana in August 2020. “We were very happy to be selected to provide the full system and jackpot solution to Grand Casino Tirana last year and are obviously very proud to have been chosen again to now provide our technology to Royal Eagle. One can’t really ask for any better type of endorsement can you?” said DR Gaming Technology CEO Jurgen De Munck, adding: “We’re very pleased.”
The technology provided to Royal Eagle Casino by DRGT includes DRGT’s full multi-currency management systems across the property’s slots and tables games, inclusive of player tracking, the company’s world-leading 8.8” multi-touch player interfaces, as well as its cash desk and cage solutions, and a number of its system-driven jackpots too.
“We’ve seen the benefits of player tracking, and the ability to then tailor bonusing and jackpots for specific players or specific types of players at Grand Casino Tirana,” added General Manager Petr Kulhánek. “It’s done wonders for our players’ experience, and our numbers, and I have no doubt that the team we have trained here at Royal Eagle will be able to do the same.”
Most of Albania’s sports-betting operations and casinos were closed down at the start of 2019 with the implementation of new gambling legislation that, broadly put, only allows gambling to take place at 5-star hotels and resorts outside of residential areas and specifically near or in tourist locales. Located in Sheshi Italia, Tirana, Royal Eagle Casino opened at midday with just over 200 slots and 10 tables.
