EUROMAT appoints new president

By Robert Simmons
Multinational gaming industry body, the European Gaming and Amusement Federation (EUROMAT) has confirmed the appointment of Jason Frost as its new president for a fixed term of two years.

The appointment was confirmed by EUROMAT officials at the organisation’s annual general meeting, held in Berlin last week.

Frost previously served as the President of the British Amusement Catering Trades Association (BACTA).

In a statement confirming his appointment to the role, he said: “It’s a real privilege to serve our industry Europe-wide. Never has EUROMAT been more needed by its members.”

In his first act as President, Frost promised EUROMAT would strengthen its position on electronic payments.

Frost added: “We’re moving towards becoming a cashless society and yet this fact seems to be ignored by regulators. I’m making a call today to the European regulatory community to get round the table with us and help us to find a way forward together.

“Like any other business we need to be able to offer electronic payment and payback as well as cash. It is better for business but also better for the player who will find it easier to pre-commit, setting limits on spend and time. Regulators understand the value of this in the online market and with our existing ability to monitor our players they should realise how valuable this can be for social responsibility. It’s a win-win.”
