Company’s passion for the game takes center stage as AGS displays new slot and table games, and online social and real-money games

 

AGS announced that it will exhibit at the Oklahoma Indian Gaming Conference and Trade Show July 22-24 at the Cox Business Center in downtown Tulsa. AGS will spotlight the Company’s newest core slot cabinet – the Orion Upright – along with a host of new slot titles, table products, and online social and real-money gaming solutions.

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.

Regulated Online Gambling Market Attracts the Attention of Big Players

The regulated online gambling market in the U.S. has attracted the attention of many big players, both within and outside the gambling industry. This includes a disproportionate amount of offshore companies, due to the fraught history of online gambling in the states.

Since the advent of the Internet, the federal government and the Justice Department have taken a hostile stance towards online gambling. With the exception of sports betting in recent years, online casino gambling still remains very much within the crosshairs of the government.

Over the years, this has led to the stagnation of the online gambling market in the U.S., with the notable exception of Las Vegas. When you discount the casinos in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, very few homegrown companies are active in the online gambling scene, especially on the tech side of the equation.

In the global market, Europe has stolen a march on everyone else with their more liberal take on regulated online gambling. This has led to the rise of a diverse field of companies looking to enter the newly opened online betting markets in the United States in 2018–19.

Luxury gaming manufacturer and electronic table game (ETG) market leader Interblock® announced an expansion of their footprint at Foxwoods Resort Casino, North America’s largest resort casino. The most recent addition to the casino is a Diamond dealer assist stadium to the Rainmaker Casino. The expansion takes the product portfolio of Interblock to 85 seats at the property.

John Connelly, CEO of Interblock commented “The executive management team at Foxwoods Resort Casino has always strived to be first when it comes to innovation. The introduction of a third stadium within the same casino is an indication of the financial benefits Foxwoods has realized.

A combination of new players, operational savings, and the ability to increase both handle and hold percentages has proven to bring the incremental EBITDA Foxwoods was looking for. This could have only been achieved with the support of the casino.”

Foxwoods Resort Casino was one of the first properties in North America to install the company’s award-winning Pulse Arena in 2016, which was branded as PLAY Arena. PLAY Arena is a technological experience that delivers a hybrid of entertainment, gambling, and social interaction. An immersive video wall displays games in play, statistics, and game history. New Interblock technology provides players with the ability to play up to four games simultaneously from a single play station within the stadium including live Multi-hand Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and video Craps and Sic Bo.

Performance results from PLAY Arena have encouraged property management to add additional Interblock Stadiums to their casino floor. In addition to PLAY Arena in the Great Cedar Casino, the property will now feature Diamond dealer assist stadiums in both their Rainmaker Casino and Fox Tower Casino. The stadiums consist of 30 and 24 seats respectively and feature live Multi-hand Blackjack, Dual-shoe Baccarat and Roulette. Interblock stadium solutions allow operators to easily transform a dealer assisted stadium into a fully automated stadium, ensuring that the section of the casino floor is always active and able to generate constant revenue even when live dealers are not present. The live dealer tables are equipped with an easy to use dealer console and a camera that allows players to view the live gameplay from their play station screen in addition to the large LCD displays above. Play stations are also equipped with brilliant high-definition graphics offering side bets, trends, game rules and a strategy card for Blackjack.

Wayne Theiss, Vice President Table Games at Foxwoods Resort Casino said “We are very excited about our continued partnership with Interblock. Our recently expanded footprint is a testament to the tremendously successful performance of their units on our floor.”
