James has given me advice since 2014. During this time, the profit per EGM ranking of my pub has lifted from a top 100 to a top 10 venue in NSW. He has kept me honest, and since working with him, my gaming floor has this ‘constantly evolving’ feel to it.

He has a unique ability to keep me up to speed with the latest products and his analytical reports are like nothing I have seen in the industry. Our success would not have been possible without James’ ongoing expertise and knowledge. I cannot recommend him enough.

James has helped in managing our growing gaming portfolio of 26 venues. He has improved gaming on an ongoing basis exploring all possible options and offered sound recommendations on industry leaders and commercial agreements in pokies, signage, service, systems etc. He has saved us thousands in gaming agreements that may have been overlooked in the past. His analytical skills are the best I have seen. He has helped me look at gaming from an external perspective. I have no hesitation in recommending James to any group or venue, large or small.

James is the best in the business. If you are thinking of hiring a gaming manager, do not waste your money. Hire Optimise Gaming. I have personally dealt with James over 3 different venues including the Royal Exhibition hotel Surrey Hills, Oxford Hotel Drummoyne and now the St George hotel at Belmore. His friendly attitude means he is very approachable with any gaming related questions. His analytical mindset and ability to analyze different gaming outcomes and options whilst offering the right recommendations is crucial to gaming as it is the most important function of my pub business.

James has looked after SJB Hotel for the last 5 years or so. He helped my father the late Con Savas before me. In this time my gaming revenue has grown exponentially. Turnover is close to double since James started with us. He has helped us tremendously with product choice, commercial contracts, reporting, floor layouts and renovations. Without him the business would not be what it is today. The ongoing value from a partnership with James is unbeatable.

In such a competitive pub gaming space, it is vital to the success of our business for our patrons to feel like they are playing the latest and best games in the market.
James had helped the group in many aspects in this landscape. He has provided us with the latest information including game trends, releases, positioning and set up options. My job is a lot easier because of James’ ongoing help.

James is a joy to work with. If he did not know an answer, he would not rest until he found it and called me back. His gaming advice has always been sound, and I cannot recommend him more.
