PETALING JAYA: Amid the changing social and economic environment due to the Covid-19 pandemic, RGB International Bhd has started looking into the possibility of introducing remote gaming solutions.
The company, which is involved in supplying gaming products such as casino equipment and electronic gaming machines, has also started distributing social distancing products for gaming outlets in light of the health crisis.
“In view of the requirement for social distancing measure in the respective countries, the group is exploring the possibility of remote gaming solution as an alternative for land-based gaming operators, ” RGB managing director Datuk Seri Chuah Kim Seah said in the group’s annual report.
“We are also distributing social distancing products such as machine partition and cashless payment solutions for gaming outlets, ” he added.
Chuah acknowledged the company’s outlook for the first half of 2020 had been dampened by the Covid-19 pandemic, which had resulted in the temporary closure of its operations in several countries since mid-March.“With the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic, the business climate for 2020 is challenging, not only for us, but for operations across various industries across the globe as well, ” he said.
“The pandemic has led to widespread imposition of travel restrictions, movement control on people and suspension of business operations to curb the spread of the virus, ” he added.
