ST ANDREW, Jamaica — Leading gaming producer, Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL) has opened the doors to its latest and largest company-owned retail store at the Twin Gates Plaza Constant Spring Road, St Andrew.
In addition to selling the company’s games, the flagship store, in which it has invested some $100 million, will offer more products from its growing portfolio on the company's 21st birthday.
Customers who are used to its regular numbers and scratch games, will be happy that the 4,000 square foot space also has video lottery terminals in its gaming lounge; access to purchasing phone credit and other such products; as well as accessing loans from its new micro-lending arm, McKayla Financial Services, and bill payment through Evolve Pay, a new bill payment product.
“I take pride in the fact that our company continues to make significant progress,” SVL Executive Chairman, Gary Peart, told an impressive crowd which filled the new facilities to hear from him, as well as CEO of its subsidiary, Prime Sports Limited, Xesus Johnston, and guest speaker Keith Duncan, President of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ).
Peart also announced that after a wave of success in its operations, notably with the recently released instant scratch-off card game, Supreme Scratchaz, SVL had decided on the new flagship location to house all the games its customers have grown to love and more, as well as access to its latest financial services product.
He said that the opening of this tenth company-owned location exemplifies the attitude and approach of hard work exhibited by SVL.
“This expansion and major investment reaffirms SVL’s commitment to Jamaica’s economy. We continue to directly employ a significant workforce of over 500 persons across the group, as well as indirectly impact over 30,000 Jamaicans across our retail network and the Caymanas community, at a time when thousands of our people are struggling due to the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Peart noted.
“We will continue to live up to our promises of making winners every day, from the new Twin Gates flagship store,” he added.
Duncan credited Peart for the opening of the new state-of-the-art facility “and the version which, no doubt, represents a signal of business confidence locally, even as we continue to counter a range of local and international challenges within the economy”.
He also acknowledged the strategic thrust of the SVL Group which, he said, was underlined by the “innovative spirit’ in which it launched the Evolve Pay Product to complement its digital micro-finance product, which is being driven by the Supreme Fintech subsidiary”.
Another highlight of the launch was the unveiling of a 50-foot interactive augmented reality mural, designed and painted locally, showcasing the cultural relevance and impact of the SV brand since its inception 21 years ago.
