AGS President and Chief Executive Officer David Lopez said, “OIGA is one of the most important trade shows we attend and an event we look forward to every year. It’s a great opportunity to spend time with our loyal Oklahoma customers, showcase our newest innovations, and reinforce our commitment to helping the Oklahoma tribal gaming market continue to thrive. AGS has deep roots in Oklahoma, and just this year, we acquired Oklahoma-based Integrity Gaming Corp. and held our GameON Customer Summit in Oklahoma. We are grateful to be one of the state’s largest game suppliers and appreciate the important role Oklahoma plays in AGS’ future.”

Taking center stage in AGS’ Booth No. 1208 will be the new Orion Upright, a core cabinet with many of the same features as the Company’s award-winning Orion Portrait℠ and Orion Slant℠ platforms, including the distinctive starwall design featuring 420 game-synchronized full-color LED lights to celebrate gameplay. The Orion Upright also offers dual 27-inch HD displays, an ergonomic LCD button deck, dual high-bright SPIN buttons, an integrated charging port, and an LCD HD topper designed to attract. The Orion Upright is launching with a library of exclusive new and proven dual-screen titles and a library of greatest hits from AGS’ ICON™ cabinet. OIGA attendees will be able to experience the Orion Upright with Imperial Luck® and Blazing Luck™ game content.

For its award-winning Orion Portrait premium cabinet, AGS will showcase two top-performing games – Crystal Magic® and Rakin’ Bacon!®  The Rakin’ Bacon! game was the top-ranked core theme in the June 2019 Eilers-Fantini game performance report at 2.28x house average.

And AGS’ Orion Slant will be showcased at OIGA with several player-engaging Asian-themed games, including, Golden Wins® and Jade Wins®.

AGS continues to propel its table products business with a host of new proprietary table games and table solutions. OIGA attendees will get to experience Blackjack Match Progressive™ with Buster Blackjack®, Jackpot Hold’em™, and Vega$ 3 Poker™, all with AGS’ award-winning STAX Progressive™. STAX features a must-hit-by progressive jackpot option and up to five progressive meter levels for larger and more frequently hitting rewards. From its table equipment lineup, AGS will showcase its Dex S™ single-deck poker shuffler, highlighting a streamlined design that is economical, durable, reliable, and exceptionally functional. The Dex S shuffles a single deck in less than 36 seconds.

In the Company’s Interactive display, AGS will showcase its ConnexSys Social White-Label Casino℠, which is a custom turnkey, free-to-play mobile casino app that integrates a casino brand with AGS’ proven and player-favorite land-based games to keep players engaged at home, work, and on-the-go. With live ops features and connection to casino-management systems, this turnkey solution strengthens player relationships and the casino brand, with optional in-app chip purchases to boost revenue.

And with real-money gaming at the forefront of many tribal gaming operators’ agendas, AGS will also be on hand to provide live demonstrations of its AxSys Games Marketplace℠ aggregator and content provider for real money gaming and sports betting partners.  The AxSys Games Marketplace has a large library of titles featuring AGS top-performing games as well as a host of entertaining games from third-party developers.

Alaska Governor Proposes Bill to Create New Lottery Corporation

Alaska Governor Proposes Bill to Create New Lottery Corporation
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Mike Dunleavy, the Governor of Alaska, has proposed and introduced legislation (Senate Bill 188 or SB 188), which would create a new state-run lottery corporation. It would allow the introduction of state-run lottery draws and scratch-offs, as well as participation in some multi-state lotteries.

“In the face of low state revenues, my administration has been actively seeking new revenue sources to diversify our economy. Not only does this legislation have the potential of creating new business opportunities, the profits generated from lottery activities will be designated to K-12 education, domestic violence prevention programs, drug abuse prevention programs, foster care, and homelessness,” Mike Dunleavy said.

When comparing Alaska with Vermont, the population of Alaska is around 731,000 and Vermont has about 624,000 residents, 107,000 fewer. The fiscal year 2018 saw lottery revenue of $132.41 million, of which $27.1 million went to the state’s Education Fund, according to Vermont State and players took home $87.4 million. Around $8.1 million was paid to employees and Just $3.02 million was for administrative costs.

Based on the above return, Dunleavy’s estimates from the lottery and sports gambling of between $5 million and $10 million each year seem to be actually low. The number could go much higher with the additional approval of electronic lottery terminals sought by SB 188, and would facilitate lottery and sports gambling activity “through the use of any media, including electronic terminals, computers, and the internet.”

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has continued its expansion into the regulated US space by securing authorisation from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to provide affiliate services in the Keystone State.

Pennsylvania becomes the fourth state in which GiG’s Media division is active through its US-facing websites the World Sports Network (WSN.com) and CasinoTopsOnline.com.

GiG was granted an affiliate vendor registration in New Jersey in January 2019, which was followed by a certificate of registration for sports wagering in Indiana in December 2019. WSN.com is also operational in West Virginia, where there are no licensing requirements for sports betting affiliates.

Richard Brown, CEO of GiG, comments, “The Pennsylvania authorisation comes at an opportune moment for us as our flagship website, WSN.com, continues to climb in Google rankings in the US. This will provide us with more opportunities to convert visitors into players and we’re fully prepared to enter more states as they allow legal operators to start accepting customers.”

Listeners will get inside scoop on the latest in downtown Las Vegas, gaming and entertainment

Eager to share the latest and greatest news and happenings in downtown Las Vegas, the Plaza Hotel & Casino has launched “On the Corner of Main Street,” a new weekly podcast offering listeners an inside scoop on gaming developments, exciting events, and the amazing people making downtown Las Vegas unique and a fast-growing destination.

On the podcast, Plaza CEO Jonathan Jossel will be joined by special guests, including entertainers, gaming industry leaders, local officials and partners who will share their own exclusive and often entertaining perspective on where Vegas got its start – downtown – and where downtown is going now.

“I regularly greet guests and residents, alike, who are amazed by everything going on at the Plaza and in downtown Las Vegas,” said Jossel. “Not since the heyday of the Rat Pack era has downtown Las Vegas been so exciting. This podcast will be a fun way to highlight downtown’s developments, including new shows, restaurants and attractions and introduce listeners to the people behind the projects that are setting downtown Vegas apart. From my personal anecdotes of running a downtown Vegas hotel/casino to the stories of downtown’s iconic past and the perspectives of current Las Vegas leaders, On the Corner of Main Street will be the place to hear all about downtown Las Vegas.”

The initial 12-episode series of On the Corner of Main Street will be available on the Plaza’s website at https://www.plazahotelcasino.com/podcast/ as well as on Spotify and the Apple Podcast App, airing weekly on Wednesdays starting Feb. 19. Special guests will include downtown developer Sam Cherry; former mob attorney and Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman; the Plaza’s bingo manager, Weldon Russell; and William Hill US CEO Joe Asher.

On the Corner of Main Street will be produced by Utter Clarity LLC, a podcast production company comprised of seasoned professionals from business, broadcasting, entertainment and professional sports. It will join the long list of Utter Clarity’s shows that entertain and educate, such as “Seinfeld” alum Steve Hytner’s guy-talk podcast “That’s Gold! with Steve Hytner” and the expert injury analysis of former NFL Team Doctor David Chao in his podcast “ProFootball Doc.”
