Sega Sammy Creation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sega Sammy, have been granted a Manufacturer license and Distributor licenses for the manufacture, sale and distribution of gaming machines in the State of Nevada.
The approvals were made on December 1 and followed investigations and hearings by the Nevada Gaming Control Board and the Nevada Gaming Commission. Sega Sammy Creation, who develops, manufactures and sells gaming machines, applied for a license in Nevada to expand into North America, the world’s largest gaming machine market, in order to increase its Asia-centric business. It said it would now apply for inspection of its gaming machines by the relevant institutions and would develop its sales structures, aiming to begin introducing its products in FY ending March 2019. The company said it would move forward with procedures to acquire licenses in other regions to expand its distribution area, but at this time the impact of this license acquisition on this fiscal year’s results is expected to be minor.
