Company to Launch Orion Slant Cabinet, New Progressive Ecosystems for Slots & Table Games
LAS VEGAS, April 17, 2018 – AGS (the “Company”), a leading designer and supplier of electronic gaming machines (“EGMs”) and other products and services for the gaming industry, announced today that it will showcase the diversity and strength of its ground-breaking hardware and game development capabilities at the National Indian Gaming Association’s (NIGA) 2018 Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention on April 19-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. With new product highlights including the much-anticipated launch of the Orion Slant cabinet, and all-encompassing progressive ecosystems for both slots and table games, AGS continues to demonstrate its obsession with offering Tribal Gaming operators next-level casino entertainment options for their players.
“We’re obsessed with developing innovative new solutions to help power the success of Tribal Gaming properties across the country,” said David Lopez, President and CEO of AGS. “We’ve been committed to expanding our hardware and game offerings year over year, and this year is no exception. We are excited to showcase a wide range of new, visually-stunning hardware and deeply creative game content from our slot, table game, and social casino product lines, offering our customers even more ways to increase performance.”
Headlining the company’s slot products is the Orion Slant, the newest member of its award-winning Orion℠ cabinet line with its distinctive U-shaped lighting design. Featuring a stunning LCD topper and button deck, 32” top monitor, 24” bottom monitor, and a USB charging port, the Orion Slant takes the proven performance of the original Orion Portrait and transforms it into a smart, slant-top footprint for ideal sightlines and an immersive gaming experience. Available for sale or lease with a game library based on established math models, new titles such as Dragon Fa™, Phoenix Fa™, and Fu Nan Fu Nu Lucky Dragons™ include player-favorite game mechanics like progressive pick bonuses, volatility pickers, vibrant crisp graphics, and 420 eye-catching emotive LED lights.
Adding to the lineup of innovations, nearly every game across three different cabinet lines – ICON, Orion Portrait, and Orion Slant – will be connected to the powerful Xtreme Jackpots® multi-level progressive ecosystem. This innovative progressive connection increases excitement across the casino floor by building larger, more meaningful jackpot amounts that hit more frequently. The company will also have new Xtreme Jackpots game titles on display for its core cabinet ICON, like Fu Pig™, and Golden Skulls™, along with new games for Orion Portrait like Ghost Bear: Growling Boost™, Forest Dragons™, and Shou Hu Shen. Each game within these offerings feature distinctive bonuses, stunning graphics, engaging sounds, and captivating math models.
With more than 2,400 placements across the country, AGS’ table product portfolio continues to expand and at this year’s show the company will feature its innovative new multi-level, must-hit-by STAX™ progressive technology. Attendees will get a chance to see how STAX easily integrates with hit games like Super 4™ blackjack and Royal 9™ baccarat to increase jackpot wins and engagement across the pit. In addition, the company’s highly-anticipated DEX S™ single-deck card shuffler will also be on display, along with the popular game Criss Cross Poker™ with Bonus Spin™ and AGS’ newest blackjack derivative One and Done 21™, which offers players a simple way to win with no hitting, standing, doubling, or splitting.
AGS will also demonstrate new features to its white-label social casino offering, Social WLC™, including the ability to connect to casino management systems for enhanced loyalty and rewards capabilities. This enhanced version enables players to view and earn card points and status within a casino’s self-branded Social WLC app as well as customized offers and promotions that they can redeem at the land-based casino. AGS soft launched its turn-key Social WLC solution in mid-2017 and now has approximately a half dozen partners. Its battle-tested platform supports gaming operators’ player engagement initiatives by offering a self-funded solution for achieving brand extension, communications, promotions, and monetization goals.
