The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has given the go-ahead for Gamestec, a division of Danoptra, to acquire Inspired Gaming's pub business, writes Ewan Turney. The deal provides Gamestec with ownership of about 30,000 gaming machines installed in pubs and other outlets throughout the UK. The move will make Gamestec the largets gaming machine supplier to the pub trade. The ruling means Gamestec can now start to integrate the newly acquired business, currently trading under the name of RLMS Acquisitions, into its operations. “We will now focus on putting the two businesses together as one, strong and service-led," said Gamestec managing director Stuart Ross. "The pub industry remains at the core of our business. Our customers are being supportive throughout this period of change and we are working hard to repay that support."
