EVERI REPORTS RECORD RESULTS FOR THE 2021 SECOND QUARTER

Broad-based Strength in Games and FinTech Segment Operating Performance

Provides Full Year 2021 Guidance, including Net Income of $87 Million to $95 Million and
Adjusted EBITDA of $332 Million to $342 Million


Las Vegas – August 4, 2021 - Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), a premier
provider of land-based and digital casino gaming content and products, financial technology, and loyaltysolutions, today reported record financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. The 2021second quarter revenue, net income, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are all slightly above therespective ranges the Company provided on June 21, 2021. The results are a quarterly sequential improvement from the 2021 first quarter, reflecting continued strength in casino patron demand, while stillreflecting an ongoing, but reduced, impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights Compared to the Second Quarter 2019


Because second quarter 2020 financial results were severely impacted by casino closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company believes it is more meaningful to compare 2021 second quarter results to those of the 2019 second quarter. Financial results for the 2021, 2020 and 2019 second quarter periods are presented in the Consolidated, Games and Financial Technology Solutions highlight tables below.

• Revenues rose 33% to a quarterly record $172.6 million, compared to $129.7 million in the
2019 second quarter.

• Net income improved 560% to a quarterly record $36.2 million, or $0.36 per diluted share,
compared to $5.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the 2019 second quarter.

• Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, increased 44% to a quarterly record $92.5
million, compared to $64.1 million in the 2019 second quarter.

• Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, increased 462% to $39.2 million, compared
to $7.0 million in the 2019 second quarter.

• Revenue, net income, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are all slightly above the
respective ranges the Company provided on June 21, 2021.

• Subsequent to quarter-end, completed a successful refinancing that reduced total debt to
$1.0 billion, decreased cash interest costs and extended maturities.


Michael Rumbolz, Chief Executive Officer of Everi, said, “The record 2021 second quarter results reflect
the substantial benefit of our execution of our ongoing growth initiatives, as well as improvement in industry trends. The strong momentum to-date this year in revenues, earnings and cash flow is being driven by consistent improvements in our Games and FinTech segment operating performance, demonstrating yet again the substantial demand that exists for our high-value products.


"A key highlight of our significant growth compared to pre-pandemic periods is the strength of our recurring revenue streams, which comprise an increased percentage of our overall business mix. This revenue is a significant contributor to our growing Free Cash Flow, which in turn has allowed us to dramatically lower our net leverage,” added Rumbolz. “Accordingly, we are favorably positioned to prudently invest in both internal product innovation and complementary, high-return, accretive acquisitions that will support our future growth.”

Mark Labay, Chief Financial Officer of Everi, said, “Our improved performance positioned us to obtain a
strong response from the capital markets for our recent debt refinancing, including credit rating agency upgrades of all our newly issued debt instruments. This resulted in lower borrowing rates and extended debt maturities. Upon completion of this successful refinancing, at current interest rates our annualized cash interest costs will now be approximately $23 million less than at June 30, 2021. We expect our lower annual interest will contribute to the sustainability and further growth of our Free Cash Flow.”

(1) Operating loss, net loss, and net loss per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2020, included $14.8 million of pre-tax charges, including $11.0 million of business reorganization costs, $2.7 million of employee severance costs, $0.6 million non-recurring professional fees, and $0.5 million in other one-time charges. Operating income, net income and net earnings per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2019 included approximately $0.8 million for certain non-recurring professional fees and related costs and expenses associated with the acquisition of certain player loyalty assets and a non-cash charge of $0.8 million for the write-off of inventory related to certain legacy cabinets.

(2) In December 2019, the Company completed a public offering of 11.5 million shares of common stock. Weighted average basic shares outstanding were 88.7 million, 85.1 million, and 71.5 million shares for the periods ended June 30, 2021, 2020, and 2019, respectively.

Second Quarter 2021 Results Overview

Results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2021 reflect the continued, albeit lesser, impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Results for the 2020 second quarter reflect the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and results for the 2019 second quarter were unimpacted by the pandemic.

Randy Taylor, Everi’s Chief Operating Officer, said, “Our record quarterly revenue was up 33% over the pre-COVID 2019 second quarter, primarily driven by the strength in our recurring revenue operations in both our Games and FinTech segments. Our Games segment momentum reflects the continued growth in our installed base of gaming operations units, particularly increased placements of our higher-earning premium units that drove the increase in daily win per unit. In addition, slot machine sales increased by 49% sequentially from the 2021 first quarter, reflecting what we believe is another quarter of higher ship share of replacement units. Second quarter unit sales also benefited from a larger share of shipments to new casino openings and expansions than we have historically achieved together with a greater number of new casino openings and expansions than typically experienced in a quarter.

“Our FinTech segment continues to benefit from our comprehensive, integrated financial access services and RegTech software solutions, as well as our newer loyalty products such as our updated and upgraded self-service loyalty kiosks. Our strong FinTech industry position enables Everi to benefit from the widespread increase in casino player activity, which drove mid-teens percentage growth in the number of financial access transactions we processed as compared to 2019 second quarter volumes; a rate that was significantly above our historical rate of growth.

“The operating performance of our two segments, together with a continued focus on operating expenses, led to net income of $36.2 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, record quarterly Adjusted EBITDA of $92.5 million, up more than 40% over the comparable 2019 period, and Free Cash Flow generation of $39.2 million.

“Additionally, we continue to see a high level of interest by casino operators in our cashless digital wallet solution and our iGaming slot content. These are two important growth initiatives in which we’ve invested over a number of years given our expectation that they can both be additive to our core business momentum in the near- and long-term.”

(1) Operating loss for the three months ended June 30, 2020, included $11.3 million of pre-tax charges, including $9.2 million of business reorganization costs, $1.6 million of employee severance costs and $0.5 million of other one-time charges. Operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2019 included approximately $0.3 million for certain nonrecurring professional fees and related costs and a non-cash charge of $0.8 million for the write-off of inventory related to certain legacy cabinets.

(2) For a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA, see the Unaudited Reconciliation of Selected Financial GAAP to Non-GAAP measures provided at the end of this release.

(3) Daily win per unit reflects the total of all units installed at casinos, inclusive of closed casinos and inactive units, where such units would have recorded no revenue and excludes the impact of the direct costs associated with the Company’s wide-area progressive jackpot expense.

(4) The ending and average installed base for all three periods includes all units, whether or not casinos were open and whether or not the games were active.

 

2021 Second Quarter Games Segment Highlights

Games segment revenues increased to a quarterly record $99.3 million compared to $20.9 million in the 2020 second quarter and was up 43% over the $69.4 million in the 2019 second quarter. This reflects strong gaming operations performance as well as higher shipments of gaming machines.

Operating income increased to $30.6 million, compared to an operating loss of $41.8 million a year ago and operating income of $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2019. The increase in the 2021 second quarter operating income over the prior-year periods reflects the benefit of higher revenues, a greater 5 proportion of higher-margin gaming operations revenue in the overall mix, the Company’s cost containment efforts, and lower amortization. Adjusted EBITDA increased to a quarterly record $60.4 million, from $3.0 million and $34.7 million in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Gaming operations revenue grew to a quarterly record $73.2 million, compared to $13.9 million and $45.6 million in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

• Reflecting the player popularity of the latest games and the growth in higher-earning premium unit placements, Daily Win per Unit (“DWPU”) rose to a quarterly record $45.66 in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $9.84 and $32.26 in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

• The installed base as of June 30, 2021 increased by 9%, or 1,313 units, year over year and by 302 units on a quarterly sequential basis to a record 16,251 units. • The premium portion of the installed base increased by 20%, or 1,165 units, year over year and by 264 units on a quarterly sequential basis to 6,961 units. Growth was driven primarily by incremental placements of the strong-performing The Vault™ game theme and premium mechanical reel games, as well as the continued solid performance of other themes including Smokin' Hot Stuff Wicked Wheel® and Shark Week®. Premium units represented 43% of the total installed base at quarter-end compared to 39% a year ago and 25% as of June 30, 2019. Wide-area progressive (“WAP”) units, a subcategory of premium units, grew by 114 units year over year to 1,082 units as of June 30, 2021, partly reflecting the launch of the new Monsterverse™ game on the Empire DCX® cabinet and the installation of the first WAP into commercial casinos in Nevada and New Jersey.

• Digital revenue more than doubled to $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $1.5 million a year ago and increased 50% on a quarterly sequential basis, partially reflecting a full quarter of revenue from Michigan. Digital revenue growth also reflects increased B2B revenue from the expanded base of iGaming operator sites featuring the Company’s games – including in West Virginia, British Columbia and Manitoba that went live during the quarter – along with a growing library of available slot content.

• Revenues from the New York Lottery system business were $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $4.9 million in the second quarter 2019. There was no revenue in the second quarter of 2020 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gaming equipment and systems revenues generated from the sale of gaming units and other related parts and equipment totaled $26.1 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $7.0 million and $23.4 million in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

• The Company sold 1,402 units, including several hundred units for new casino openings and expansions, at an average selling price (“ASP”) of $17,894 in the second quarter of 2021. This is an increase compared with 381 units at an ASP of $18,044 in the second quarter of 2020 and 1,270 units at an ASP of $17,338 in the second quarter of 2019.

2021 Second Quarter Financial Technology Solutions Segment Highlights

FinTech revenues for the 2021 second quarter increased to a record $73.2 million, compared to $17.8 million in the 2020 second quarter and were up 21% over the $60.3 million in the 2019 second quarter. The growth over both years reflects an increase in revenues from financial access services, lower-margin hardware sales and software and other.

Operating income in the 2021 second quarter rose to $23.8 million, compared to an operating loss of $10.9 million a year ago and operating income of $22.3 million in the 2019 second quarter. The increase primarily reflects the benefit of higher revenues partially offset by an increase in research and development expense as a result of an acceleration of new product development efforts, including development of new and enhanced loyalty products and the Company’s CashClub Wallet® digital technology offering. Adjusted EBITDA was $32.1 million, compared to $0.3 million and $29.4 million in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

• Financial access services revenues, which include both cashless and cash dispensing debit and credit card transactions and check services, increased 16% on a quarterly sequential basis to $44.8 million, reflecting continued improvements in casino activity, and grew 13% from the second quarter of 2019.

     • Throughout the 2021 second quarter, growth in transactional activity on a same-store basis was up at a consistent mid-teens rate compared to the second quarter of 2019.

• Software and other revenues, which include loyalty and regulatory compliance (RegTech) software, product subscriptions, kiosk maintenance services, and other revenue, were $15.6 million, of which approximately 80% were of a recurring nature. This compares to total revenue of $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2020, of which 79% were of a recurring nature, and $12.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, of which 66% were of a recurring nature.

• Hardware sales revenues were $12.8 million, inclusive of significant shipments of self-service kiosks and other loyalty and financial access equipment for new casino openings and major expansions, in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $3.4 million and $7.8 million in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

• Subsequent to the 2021 second quarter-end, the Company entered into a series of refinancing transactions that reduced interest cost, extended debt maturities and resulted in $1.0 billion of total indebtedness. The new total debt comprises $600.0 million of senior secured term loan priced at LIBOR plus 2.50% with a LIBOR Floor of 50 basis points due 2028, $400.0 million of 5.000% senior unsecured notes due 2029, and a $125.0 million revolving credit facility due 2026 which is undrawn. At current market interest rates, the refinancing resulted in annual cash interest savings of approximately $23 million compared to June 30, 2021.

• As of June 30, 2021, the Company had $340.4 million of cash and cash equivalents. Pro forma for the debt repayment, early redemption fees and transaction costs of the refinancing transactions completed in the third quarter, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $155.1 million. • In the 2021 second quarter, the Company paid $9.9 million in total earned contingent consideration for its 2019 acquisition of certain assets of Atrient and paid the remaining $5.0 million purchase price installment related to the 2019 acquisition of certain assets of Micro Gaming Technology.

 

Outlook

With industry conditions stabilizing, and assuming that conditions continue to trend without additional setbacks due to pandemic or other macro-economic effects, Everi is providing annual guidance of selected expected financial results, a practice consistent with its custom prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. For the full year 2021, the Company expects revenue of $615 million to $635 million, net income of $87 million to $95 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $332 million to $342 million, and Free Cash Flow of $168 million to $177 million. Factors considered in Everi’s 2021 outlook include:

• Capital expenditures (inclusive of placement fees) will be $105 million to $113 million;

• The Company expects to incur a loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $32 million to $35 million in the 2021 third quarter, in conjunction with the early redemption of its 7.50% senior unsecured notes due 2025, the repayment of the incremental term loan and the refinancing of its senior secured credit facility due 2024, including the revolving credit facility due 2022. 8 Approximately $11 million to $14 million is expected to be non-cash related to the write-off of existing debt issuance costs and unamortized discount on the existing borrowings; and

• Shipments for new casino openings and expansions in the 2021 second half are expected to be lower, reflecting fewer new opening and expansions compared to the first half of 2021.

• Assumes no significant change or reversal of the Company's deferred tax asset valuation allowances during the year.

• The Company’s 2021 full year outlook does not contemplate any additional meaningful potential impact from any macroeconomic or pandemic-related setback; but does reflect the likelihood of receding government stimulus benefits and an increase in pressure on consumer discretionary spending. A summary and reconciliation of the financial targets is included as a supplemental table at the end of this release.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In order to enhance investor understanding of the underlying trends in our business, our cash balance, and cash available for our operating needs, and to provide for better comparability between periods in different years, we are providing in this press release Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available, which are not measures of our financial performance or position under United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Accordingly, Adjusted EBITDA, and Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. These measures should be read in conjunction with our net earnings, operating income, and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. With respect to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available, these measures should be read in conjunction with cash and cash equivalents prepared in accordance with GAAP.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash stock compensation expense, accretion of contract rights, write-down of inventory, property and equipment and intangible assets, employee severance costs and other related expenses, litigation settlement received net of legal costs, foreign exchange loss, asset acquisition expense, non-recurring professional fees, and one-time charges. We present Adjusted EBITDA, as we use this measure to manage our business and consider this measure to be supplemental to our operating performance. We also make certain compensation decisions based, in part, on our operating performance, as measured by Adjusted EBITDA; and our current credit facility and existing senior unsecured notes require us to comply with a consolidated secured leverage ratio that includes performance metrics substantially similar to Adjusted EBITDA.

We define Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less cash paid for interest, cash paid for capital expenditures, cash paid for placement fees, and cash paid for taxes net of refunds. We present Free Cash Flow as a measure of performance and believe it provides investors with another indicator of our operating 9 performance. It should not be inferred that the entire Free Cash Flow amount is available for discretionary expenditures.

A reconciliation of the Company’s net income (loss) per GAAP to Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow is included in the Unaudited Reconciliation of Selected Financial GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures provided at the end of this release. Additionally, a reconciliation of each segment’s operating income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is also included. On a segment level, operating income per GAAP, rather than net earnings per GAAP, is reconciled to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as the Company does not report net earnings by segment. Management believes that this presentation is meaningful to investors in evaluating the performance of the Company’s segments.

We define (i) Net Cash Position as cash and cash equivalents plus settlement receivables less settlement liabilities and (ii) Net Cash Available as Net Cash Position plus undrawn amounts available under our revolving credit facility. We present Net Cash Position because our cash position, as measured by cash and cash equivalents, depends upon changes in settlement receivables and the timing of payments related to settlement liabilities. As such, our cash and cash equivalents can change substantially based upon the timing of our receipt of payments for settlement receivables and payments we make to customers for our settlement liabilities. We present Net Cash Available as management monitors this amount in connection with its forecasting of cash flows and future cash requirements.

A reconciliation of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents per GAAP to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available is included in the Unaudited Reconciliation of Cash and Cash Equivalents to Net Cash Position and Net Cash Available provided at the end of this release.

Announces Refinancing of its Outstanding Total Debt with Anticipated Prepayment of $144.9 Million

LAS VEGAS, June 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) ("Everi" or the "Company"), a premier provider of land-based and digital casino gaming content and products, financial technology and player loyalty solutions, today announced that in connection with its plan to take advantage of favorable market conditions to lower its cost of debt and extend maturities through a refinancing of its total outstanding debt, the Company has announced certain expected financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2021. The expected record 2021 second quarter results demonstrate meaningful quarterly sequential improvement compared to the 2021 first quarter results as well as substantial growth compared to the pre-pandemic 2019 second quarter results, even with a continued albeit lesser impact from the COVID19 pandemic.

Announces Plan to Refinance Outstanding Debt

The Company announced a plan to take advantage of favorable market conditions to refinance its outstanding total debt and extend maturities. Everi plans to refinance its $35 million Revolving Credit Facility due 2022 and its $820 million Term Loan Facility due 2024, prepay in full its $125 million Incremental Term Loan Facility due 2024, and redeem the $285.4 million of Unsecured Notes due 2025. After refinancing its $1,144.9 million total outstanding debt, the Company expects to have $1.0 billion of outstanding total debt and to have a new $125 million Revolving Credit Facility that will be undrawn at closing.

Expected 2021 Second Quarter Results

The Company expects 2021 second quarter consolidated revenues of approximately $167 million to $172 million reflecting a quarterly sequential improvement from $139.1 million in the 2021 first quarter and an increase of more than 25% compared to $129.7 million in the pre-pandemic 2019 second quarter. The Company expects 2021 second quarter net income of $31 million to $34 million compared to $20.5 million in the 2021 first quarter and $5.5 million in the 2019 second quarter. Diluted earnings per share are expected to be $0.31 to $0.34 compared to $0.21 per share in the 2021 first quarter and $0.07 per share in the 2019 second quarter.

In addition, the Company expects that Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, will be $87 million to $91 million in the 2021 second quarter, compared to $75.4 million in the 2021 first quarter and $64.1 million in the 2019 second quarter. The Company expects that the Games and FinTech segment contributions to revenues and Adjusted EBITDA in the 2021 second quarter results will approximate a proportional split in a manner consistent with the 2021 first quarter results.

As a result of the higher revenues and net income, Free Cash Flow is expected to be $32 million to $36 million for the 2021 second quarter. Reflecting the substantial benefits of improved revenues and consistent operating execution, which is driving higher margins, Everi's cash and cash equivalents rose to $360.8 million as of May 31, 2021, compared to $335.1 million as of March 31, 2021, and $251.7 million as of December 31, 2020. Net Cash Position, a non-GAAP financial measure, which includes the impact of the full receipt of outstanding settlement receivables and the full payment of outstanding settlement liabilities from cash and cash equivalents, rose to $225.5 million as of May 31, 2021, compared to $182.6 million as of March 31, 2021, and $139.1 million as of December 31, 2020.

Michael Rumbolz, Chief Executive Officer of Everi, said, "Our expected record 2021 second quarter results highlight the ongoing strength of our core recurring revenue businesses and the benefit of our organic growth initiatives. Both our Games and FinTech segments are performing significantly above pre-pandemic periods, driving substantial improvements in our total revenue, net income, Adjusted EBITDA, and Free Cash Flow. Since March, the total value processed of our financial access transactions on a same-store basis has been consistently trending at a mid-teens percentage growth rate above the comparable 2019 volumes. This is significantly higher than our mid-single digit percentage historical average growth rate.  Additionally, our gaming operations installed base has continued to grow, fueled primarily by a greater number of premium units, which is also driving new record levels of Daily Win per Unit. We also expect our gaming machine unit sales in the second quarter will well exceed the level shipped in the first quarter of 2021.

"Our strong performance is driven by the collaborative efforts of the worldwide Everi Team to continuously enhance our product portfolio and innovate new products that help our customers extend the connection with their guests and operate more efficiently, as well as our focus on providing unmatched customer service. Given the momentum of our products in both of our business segments and our continued focus on operating execution, as well as the potential opportunity to lower our annual interest expense through refinancing of our outstanding debt, we believe Everi is well positioned to continue to generate strong Free Cash Flow and further grow shareholder value."

The expected unaudited results announced in this release are derived from preliminary expected internal financial reports and are subject to revision based on the Company's procedures and controls associated with the completion of its quarter-end financial reporting, including all customary reviews and approvals of such financial statements for the quarter ending June 30, 2021. Accordingly, actual results may differ from these preliminary results and such differences may be material. The Company anticipates releasing its 2021 second quarter results on August 4, 2021, after market close.

Everi Highlights Roadmap for Cashless Gaming Industry Leadership

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reflecting the gaming industry’s increased focus on contactless and cashless solutions to facilitate player choice in funding options, Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), a gaming industry leader for cash access player funding, highlights its current in-market solutions and its roadmap for near- and mid-term cashless product implementations. Everi’s cashless/contactless solutions, which include products that are already live in casinos and CashClub Wallet®, the Company’s fully cashless integrated mobile solution that is expected to be live in the first casinos in the fourth quarter of 2020, collectively demonstrate the Company’s positioning as an industry innovator and leader for both cash and cashless funding solutions to address the unique needs of the highly regulated gaming industry.

“For almost two decades, our cash access solutions have been at the forefront of innovative player funding technology across the gaming industry,” said Chief Executive Officer Michael Rumbolz. “In 2019, we facilitated more than 115 million transactions that delivered $30 billion of cash to casino floors and generated $165 million in revenue for Everi. We have a large base of casinos and other facilities using our fully integrated FinTech network today, as well as our portfolio of compliance services and loyalty products. We stand ready to leverage the strengths of our current product suite, already live on casino floors, with our deep development pipeline of products and services to enhance our status as provider of choice in the gaming industry well into the future. Our focused innovation and breadth of integrated capabilities enables us to provide casino patrons with a seamless transition to our cashless alternatives, positioning us to meet players’ and casino operators’ preferences, whether players want to select cash or a cashless funding solution.

“In the near-term, we expect players’ choice for funding on the casino floor will continue to favor existing cash access solutions, such as ATM withdrawals or cash advances. Going forward, and over time, adoption of cashless and contactless funding solutions will grow, allowing players the ability to move value across gaming and non-gaming venues within our customers’ land-based operations, but also into and out of a casino’s online and sports wagering offerings, and finally back to the patrons’ checking, credit and debit accounts. These bi-directional funding solutions are the hallmark of Everi’s CashClub Wallet ecosystem. Players will have the opportunity to transfer funds into and out of their wallet from the comfort of their own home before arriving at their favorite casino. This will create additional opportunities for new incremental transactions and provide tremendous value for patrons,” added Rumbolz. “By providing cashless options for players, we are creating new revenue opportunities for our customers and Everi. With our superior solutions for cash and cashless funding access, combined with our money transmitter capabilities and our integration with third-party, cashless wagering systems, we’re strategically positioned to provide seamless, cost-efficient back-of-the-house functionality to solve the unique regulatory needs of casino operators – creating a fully integrated, multi-jurisdictional, on premise and online, cashless financial- and loyalty-based ecosystem that will provide compelling value for both casino operators and players.”

Everi’s extensive, integrated FinTech and Loyalty product lines, including anti-money laundering (“AML”) and other compliance services necessary in the regulated gaming industry, provide unified and cost-efficient benefits on the casino floor - both front- and back-of-house - enabling card-based and mobile scenarios, while remaining agnostic to third-party integrations. This one-source, bi-directional functionality of the integrated CashClub Wallet makes it a convenient and cost-effective solution for casino and resort operators who desire 360-degree visibility and compatibility across their “On Premise and Online” player amenities. Everi’s integrated offering of cash and cashless options, together with their full suite of integrated products and services, provides operators with a seamless and low-cost transition for their patrons who switch from cash to cashless.

“Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the interest from our casino customers for cashless and contactless player funding technologies has greatly accelerated,” said Darren Simmons, Executive Vice President and FinTech Business Leader. “As players and casinos seek options that lessen interactions with casino employees and reduce handling of cash, we provide technology and solutions that are safer and support social distancing measures to protect players and employees. We have the opportunity now to reconcile the unique needs of the funding environment inside casinos with the quickly-evolving financial and payment environment outside the casino.”

“We’ve been innovating in this area for more than 15 years, including with our present-day self-service, cashless, gaming voucher platform,” added Simmons. “Everi is addressing casinos’ demand for immediate options today, while also developing the products that can establish a foundation to lead the industry in its embrace of true mobile cashless gaming technology in the future.”

Everi’s Cashless and Contactless Products

Each of the solutions highlighted below offer a convenient supplemental alternative to dispensing cash on the casino floor, while preserving value for operators and continuing to support a player’s choice of cash. Enabled by the Everi CashClub Wallet solution, players have for the first time the ability to move funding transactions bi-directionally: from gaming on the casino floor to a casino’s online offerings, such as sports betting and online gaming and back again, while also moving funds into the casino and depositing funds back into the wallet upon the conclusion of their casino experience. The hallmark of the Everi CashClub Wallet solution is its ability to move funds into, across and out of casinos without the need for handling of cash. This expanded capability provides seamless funds movement for the casino patron, while offering potential new transaction types to drive increased revenue for casino operators and Everi based on the flow of funds: whether to purchase a gaming voucher, fund a mobile wallet, or deposit funds back to the player’s bank account. Each solution helps lower operators’ costs by reducing cash handling, cashier cage lines, and kiosk maintenance expense by lowering the total load on the kiosk cash dispenser.

Everi Announces Successful Completion of $125 Million Incremental Term Loan and Certain Amendments to Its Senior Secured Credit Agreement

LAS VEGAS, April 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), a premier provider of gaming products and financial technology and loyalty solutions in the gaming industry, today announced that the Company successfully completed its new First Lien Term Loan (“Incremental Financing”) in the amount of $125 million. The Incremental Financing has a maturity concurrent with the May 2024 maturity date under its existing Senior Secured Credit Facility (“Existing Credit Agreement”) and an interest rate of LIBOR plus 1050 basis points with a 1% LIBOR floor. The net proceeds are intended to provide additional liquidity and financial flexibility to better position Everi to withstand the challenging conditions resulting from the novel COVID-19 pandemic and strengthen its operations as industry conditions improve.

In addition to this Incremental Financing, the Company also amended its Existing Credit Agreement to provide for changes to certain covenant provisions, including, but not limited to: eliminating the financial maintenance covenant related to senior secured leverage for each of the remaining quarters in 2020; modifying the compliance threshold in each of the quarters thereafter; and changes that limit the Company’s ability to make certain restricted payments and designate unrestricted subsidiaries (the “Amendment”). 

After fees, discounts and expenses from the Incremental Financing and the Amendment, the Company received approximately $118 million in net proceeds. Prior to the closing of the Incremental Financing, the Company had a total principal balance outstanding of approximately $1.06 billion comprised of $735.5 million on the Company’s existing First Lien Term Loan due in 2024, $35.0 million on its Revolving Credit Facility due in 2022 and $285.4 million of its 7.50% Senior Unsecured Notes due in 2025. 

“With our revenue and the associated workload essentially having been reduced to near zero and our limited clarity as to the various timelines when our customers may restart their operations, we have taken prudent actions to position our Company to withstand this period of minimal or reduced gaming industry activity,” said Michael Rumbolz, Chief Executive Officer. “We believe this incremental financing provides Everi with the flexibility to withstand this current disruption and ensure that as activity resumes we are positioned to support our customers as they reopen for business, bring our employees back to work, and regain the operating and financial momentum we consistently demonstrated prior to the COVID-19 outbreak.”

“Our continued hope is that the steps undertaken to contain the novel COVID?19 virus will prevail and that our economy and way of life can get back to normal as quickly as possible,” added Rumbolz.

“Randy has been instrumental in driving Everi’s success and positioning it for continued growth,” said Mr. Rumbolz. “He has had direct oversight of many areas of the business where we’ve achieved significant success. These include the improvements in our balance sheet during the last several years, the implementation of prudent investment strategies, including the disciplined allocation of capital to expand and improve our Games and FinTech product portfolio that has driven consistent profitable growth, and overseen several accretive acquisitions. His experience and attention to detail will help to further improve our day-to-day focus and financial performance.”

Mr. Labay has been with Everi for more than 17 years, most recently serving under Mr. Taylor as Senior Vice President, Finance and Investor Relations since April 2014. As Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Labay will be responsible for the Company’s financial, accounting, treasury, and investor relations functions, and will implement financial strategies that support Everi’s growth initiatives.

“Over the last six years, Mark has worked closely with Randy on the development and implementation of initiatives that have helped drive profitable growth and improve our financial foundation and flexibility. He has led the process of identifying and completing several accretive, strategic transactions that have improved the competitive position and financial performance of our FinTech business. Mark’s financial and operational experience will continue to benefit the Company as he moves into his new position,” said Mr. Rumbolz.

In his new role, Mr. Lucchese will be responsible for Everi’s global sales and customer-experience efforts, as well as continuing to guide the growth of the Company’s Digital operations. Mr. Lucchese has extensive experience in the gaming industry and has held several executive leadership roles at Everi since joining the Company in April 2010.

Before joining the Company, he served for nearly 25 years in sales positions at Bally Technologies, Inc., Aristocrat Technologies, Inc., and Casino Data Systems. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Management from Indiana University.

“In addition to leading our successful efforts to launch and grow our digital and Interactive business, Dave has continued to lead all aspects of many of our larger strategic accounts. By aligning responsibility for all our customer touchpoints under Dave, we expect to continue the momentum we have in place to better serve customers, strengthen our competitive position in the marketplace and enhance our long-term profitability,” said Rumbolz.

“Finally, on behalf of the entire Everi team, we wish Ed Peters the very best in his well-deserved retirement,” said Mr. Rumbolz. “Ed has had an extraordinarily successful career and during his five years at Everi, he built and led a team that has dramatically grown sales of both Games and FinTech products and services. He leaves behind a strong team dedicated to helping our customers achieve even greater success. We are pleased that Ed has agreed to a transitional position through May 2021 to affect a smooth hand-off with our customers. I am excited to work with Randy, Mark and Dave in their new roles and look forward to the year ahead as we continue to deliver increased value for all our stakeholders.”

Everi to Provide New York Lottery With Video Lottery Gaming Central System Through 2029

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE:EVRI) (“Everi” or “the Company”) announced today that it has extended its relationship with the New York Lottery for 10 additional years, pursuant to a new agreement to provide the New York Lottery with the video lottery central system through September 2029.

The Company will continue to earn a fixed percentage of the net revenue generated by the installed VLTs.

Robert Williams, Executive Director of the New York State Gaming Commission, said, “During the nearly 16 years that video lottery gaming has operated at racetracks across the State, the Commission has offered innovative gaming entertainment to players, which has provided a consistent source of funding for education in New York and distributed more than $250 billion in prizes. Through the management of their central system, Everi has been a contributor to that success as a valued technological partner. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with the company for the next 10 years.”

Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Everi, commented, “We are honored to be selected by New York State to continue to support the success of their video lottery gaming enterprise. With more than 150 billion individual player transactions made since beginning the operation of the central system for video lottery gaming across racetracks in the State nearly 16 years ago, we remain committed to providing a state-of-the-art system that helps make management of the New York VLTs seamless and secure. We are pleased the New York Lottery has once again made Everi their choice to help them achieve ongoing success from these operations during the next decade.”

“Securing this contract extension with the State of New York would not have been possible without the significant contributions of a number of organizations within Everi throughout the competitive bid process,” said Keith Riggs, Senior Vice President, Engineering, at Everi. “We are proud to have been awarded the contract and to have the opportunity to continue to put forth a trusted and reliable platform that serves as an important source of revenue for New York State. We believe this win is a testament to our innovative video lottery gaming central system.”

At G2E 2019, Everi’s Interactive product team will engage with current and potential customers as they demonstrate the advantages of integrating and deploying the Company’s RGS in their social and/or real-money interactive gaming operations. Everi will showcase its portfolio of online game content currently available including a key differentiating player feature on its RGS that offers both landscape and portrait functionality of games that are immediately available.

“Since launching our proprietary RGS a year ago at G2E and subsequently going live in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, we have had great initial success for our interactive platform and content, demonstrating the popularity of our games can transcend the land-based casino and extend to both online social and real-money environments,” said Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer, of Everi. “Today, we are working with partners and operators in additional states and believe that by the end of 2019, our RGS and gaming content will attract greater numbers of players wherever they may be. In addition, we have seen growing interest in our interactive solutions portfolio from operators outside the United States and plan to expand our real-money RGS footprint into Canada and Europe, two new geographies that would join Colombia, which is live today. All told, we now have agreements in place that will support the majority of existing real-money casino operators in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and we look forward to G2E 2019 where our team will focus on expanding our reach with additional operators and technology partners.”

David Lucchese, Executive Vice President and Interactive Business Leader of Everi, added, “Our early success in New Jersey and our to-date performance in the social space demonstrates that Everi is well-positioned with the right content and technology to serve our customers’ interactive gaming needs. We remain on pace to expand our RGS game library to more than 50 titles by year-end and are proud to note that all of our online titles were developed from our land-based content including our high-performing video games and best-in-class, award-winning mechanical games. All of Everi’s RGS content is delivered in a configurable form that allows us to tailor its performance for operators and with the flexibility to quickly add new online themes from our land-based content library. We are also well positioned to support our customers with omni-channel content launches across land-based, social, and real-money online. Put simply, we believe we have a compelling product offering and long-term content plan and look forward to showcasing what we can do today and what we plan to do in the future at G2E 2019.”

Everi to Showcase “Digital Neighborhood” Connecting Guest Loyalty, Cash Access Experiences, and Casino Solutions Made Possible by Industry-Leading Financial Technology Portfolio at 2019 Global Gaming Expo

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), the casino gaming industry’s only single source provider of gaming products, financial technology, and loyalty solutions, will demonstrate its most comprehensive portfolio ever at the 19th annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E®), to be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center (Booth #1150) in Las Vegas, Nevada, from October 15-17. The Company’s “Digital Neighborhood” of financial technology solutions is designed to seamlessly connect through Everi’s expansive and secure network and serves to optimize visibility, functionality, and usability for casino operators worldwide. Everi’s financial technology solutions on display at G2E 2019 bring commonality and continuity to operator workflows by bringing customer-centric features to loyalty, payments, and cage and cash operations, which ultimately serve to enhance the player experience.

“Everi’s commitment to innovation will be on full display at G2E 2019 as we demonstrate how our new player loyalty technology integrates seamlessly with our financial technology solutions to further elevate the player experience and provide higher efficiencies for operators,” said Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Everi. “Our unmatched suite of financial technology products and services are designed from the ground up to help operators operate more efficiently and maximize funds to their floors, while providing a new gateway for player engagement by tying critical player loyalty programs to back of house operations. With the addition and integration of our loyalty offerings, our solutions set is more powerful than ever and we are excited to demonstrate to operators how we can drive meaningful change across the operator’s business both in the back of the house and on the casino floor.”

Darren Simmons, Executive Vice President and FinTech Business Leader of Everi, added, “We are again changing the game through the addition of a robust marketing platform to our already comprehensive set of financial technology product offerings. Everi’s loyalty platform creates a central hub for all of our product touch points – including games, financial technology solutions, and interactive – and is a critical new way we can better serve operators and their guests alike. This ‘digital neighborhood’ of solutions optimizes the security, functionality, and efficiency of operators’ business operations. This approach also enables them to coordinate all their guest interactions across the full life cycle of each casino visit – from the time they enter the property, sign-up for a loyalty program, and access funding through their game play and cash out interactions – resulting in a seamless, exceptional player experience.”

Financial technology product demonstrations at G2E 2019 will include:

Loyalty Solutions
Everi’s loyalty solutions, debuting for the first time at G2E 2019, represent a critical bridge between the Company’s operator-centric financial technology solutions and its player-centric games solutions. The loyalty products on display, enrollment and promotional kiosks, are powered by an ever-evolving loyalty control panel. These kiosks are designed to engage new and returning players, creating an experience that is both easy and exciting while also enticing players to join the operator’s loyalty program and have even more fun on the gaming floor.

The first stop for player engagement on the casino floor is the enrollment kiosk, a self-service solution that replaces the player loyalty enrollment desk with a self-service kiosk. The enrollment kiosk drives new player loyalty enrollments, prints new and replacement player loyalty cards, and interfaces with the new loyalty app, enabling players to sign up for other Everi products such as the CashClub Wallet®. Players can also update their contact details and other information, all without the need to visit a club desk. Just as important, the enrollment kiosk prints permanent player cards, thus removing a time-consuming step from the operator’s workflow. Up to four player loyalty tiers can be printed by one kiosk, making this an efficient solution that frees up casino floor space for more games or other revenue-generating uses.

The promotional kiosk is the new place for guests to engage with the property’s player loyalty program, unifying all loyalty program guest service functions into a simple, self-service solution. The promotional kiosk offers account lookups and comp redemptions and delivers casino maps and interactive property information, while also highlighting the best entertainment on property with a custom event calendar. Players can also participate in entertaining promotional games, virtual drawings, offers, and more at the promotional kiosk. The kiosk’s control panel makes using the promotional platform intuitive for operators and guests alike. The top screen can be used to turn an idle kiosk into a real-time billboard for the latest property events and features.

Bringing the player loyalty program to guests’ mobile phones can be accomplished through the loyalty app, a uniquely designed mobile application that allows operators to interact and engage with guests regardless of their location. The loyalty app enables the delivery of promotions and offers directly to guests’ mobile devices, allows patrons to view and activate drawings and other promotions, and receive location-based rewards when they are at the casino. The loyalty app also allows guests to view their account information, including their tier status and point levels, at any time. The loyalty app supports other Everi products such as CashClub Wallet.

Payment Solutions
Led by CashClub®, Everi’s leading payments software platform, the Company’s payments solutions are designed to maximize funds to the floor, optimize how players access their funds, and enable operators to monitor and control player activity with an eye toward responsible gaming. CashClub Wallet is an interactive digital wallet that consolidates payment options for players when integrated with CashClub and the Company’s full-service kiosks. CashClub Wallet allows players to store multiple payment methods, easily move funds in and out of the casino, and manage their spend limits, all aimed at supporting responsible gaming. CashClub Wallet also creates consistency across payment types through a convenient and efficient patron interface. CashClub Wallet may be accessed via a player card or mobile app (either stand alone, integrated in the loyalty app, or via a third party). CashClub Wallet can easily move funds both onto and back out of electronic gaming machines on the casino floor if allowed by the casino’s regulatory system.

CashClub Concierge is a personalized cash access cage service for VIPs as well as table games and high-limit room players that integrates mobile tablets and mobile point-of-sale (POS) devices through CashClub. The service eliminates the need for a player to move away from gaming to access additional funds as the product brings the cage to the player. Once enrolled in CashClub, players only need to visit the cage once for transactions to be authorized, retrieved, and completed on the floor.

The Company’s CXC 5.0 and CXC 5.0 L full-service kiosks provide the player interface between CashClub and in-casino funds, offering enhanced security features including self-frosting glass and a real-time rear-view camera as well as plentiful branding and marketing space. Designed for smaller volume properties, the CXC 5.0 L provides similar services as the CXC 5.0, but with a smaller footprint and at a lower price point. Joining CXC 5.0 and CXC 5.0 L is VersatileXchange™ (VXC), a space- and cost-efficient kiosk that is optimized with non-cash transaction features like QuikTicket™. All three kiosks feature QuikTicket, CashClub Wallet, ticket-in/ticket-out (TITO), and the Everi Cares™ Giving Module, the only cashless donation opportunity available in the gaming space.

In today’s information security environment, operators need to know their cash dispensing touch points are protected from inside and outside threats. Everi’s Security Suite leverages Diebold Nixdorf’s fully compliant and certified Vynamic® Security Suite to deliver a layered software security approach that protects against threats from across the logical attack landscape. The suite offers intrusion protection from software threats such as viruses and malware, hardens the kiosk operating system, and encrypts device disks. Security Suite also provides full access protection by reducing available pathways for unauthorized outside access.

Casino Solutions
Everi powers operator cash and compliance operations through its comprehensive suite of casino solutions designed to optimize transactions, reduce cash exposure, and improve the guest experience, while providing the tools operators need to comply with growing regulatory demands. The Everi Compliance® AML (Anti-Money Laundering) solution is the gold standard for AML compliance across the industry as it provides real-time tracking for all transactions on the casino floor and integrates with all major casino management systems. The system also completes, files, and archives forms required to comply with federal money laundering requirements.

Everi’s CentralCredit™ is the industry-leading repository for casino-related credit information and reporting to determine a guests’ creditworthiness. The solution enables operators to quickly and efficiently make informed, proactive decisions for extending casino credit to guests – as the platform provides real-time and seamless access to the industry’s largest gaming credit bureau. CentralCredit has been proven to help operators grow market share and increase patron loyalty while increasing operational efficiencies.

RCS-Active™ and RCS-700™ are powerful cash recyclers designed to automate casino vault and cage operations by enabling rapid processing of notes and coins. Operators deploying RCS-Active™ and RCS-700™ save time in their efforts to count cash moving in and out of the vault, optimize cash on hand to minimize cash buys, and increase the accuracy and accountability of their cashiers and retail operators. These cash management solutions have among the highest capacity and speed on the market and feature Cash Complete Connect™, the industry’s most powerful back of house cash management software solution.

Everi’s CageXchange™ cash dispenser improves accuracy, reduces cash shrinkages/overages, and improves overall casino staff productivity. Wait times are significantly shortened by reducing tedious manual cash counting, allowing staff to focus more time on guest service and other cage operations. CageXchange helps improve cage accuracy and stores cash securely, providing additional protection of funds while reducing counting and balancing times.

Jackpot Xpress® is an award-winning, intuitive jackpot and tax forms management solution that enables floor staff to securely and efficiently process jackpots using a mobile device (Jackpot Xpress Mobile) right at the player’s gaming machine or at the JackpotXchange® kiosk. Jackpot Xpress is the only jackpot management system that combines mobile productivity, secure kiosk payment, tax forms management, and AML tracking into a single solution. The technology reduces or eliminates paper, reduces both cage lines and player wait times, improves casino staff efficiency, and allows the player more time on device.

The new Empire Flexvideo platform features a 49-inch flexed display on top of the Company’s popular Empire MPX base with eye-popping 4K content, industry-unique flexible integrated light bars, and a larger enhanced glass button deck. Expected to hit casino floors in the first half of 2020, the Empire Flex will debut at G2E 2019 with 14 unique themes including four games for the new Beast series, which features different majestic and ferocious beasts. Beast series games give players 1,024 different ways to win with 4K visual engagement and innovative horizontal expanding reels. Wicked Wheel Panda™ and Wicked Wheel Fire Phoenix™ feature a video wheel bonus round with random multipliers and nudges, creating an incredible amount of anticipation for players. The games offer the unique 243 Ways™ to win feature, which enable players to possibly win progressive jackpots at any bet level. Power Shot Freedom™ and Power Shot Prosperity™ are five-reel, 40-line video slots where players chase instant credit prizes or bolts in the power reel symbols, leading to a power shot bonus for a chance at big wins. 

Empire Flex will also feature a persistent state offering, an industry-popular mechanic that gives players incentives to keep playing as they chase and/or collect bonuses, multipliers, and other awards at G2E 2019. Building on the popularity of Crush™, which was introduced at last year’s G2E, Crush Dynasty™ and Crush Conquest™ contain no reels, lines, or pay tables, and instead include a sculpted Aztec head that crushes boulders to yield credits. Crush Dynasty and Crush Conquest include the new Rampage Feature, a mystery event where the stone Aztec head icon crushes multiple boulders that roll down chutes on either side of the screen to award large bonuses. Both titles will also be available on the Empire MPX cabinet.

Following its sneak peek at last year’s G2E, the new Empire DCX™ cabinet is back and ready for action with Monsterverse™ featuring Kong and Godzilla™ in earth shattering 4K game play. Based on the shared fictional blockbuster, cinematic universe from Legendary Entertainment, Monsterverse offers the Monster Bet that dares players to bet big and play four arrays at once.  Two additional games, The Mask®, based on New Line Cinema’s 1994 hit comedy, and The Karate Kid®, based on the popular feature film franchise that debuted in 1984, will also be on display at G2E and out on casino floors in late 2019. The Empire DCX cabinet includes dual curved 43-inch horizontal monitors with integrated edge lighting and enhanced game-controlled lighting, a 4K display that provides an immersive player experience, and premium 4.1 surround sound.

Introduced at last year’s G2E to great acclaim with the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week® theme that is currently a hit on casino floors, the fully featured Empire Arena™ banked product is back with two new themes and heart-pounding, bank-wide bonus features. Empire Arena offers an immersive gaming experience for players and flexibility in banking configurations for operators, starting with three units up to eight units. The bank features edge-lit shelves and circular signage that amplifies the product’s merchandising capabilities.

The Vault™ will debut on Empire Arena with three base games that feature Vault Respins, a lock-and-respin game play mechanic, free spins and pick bonuses, and the bank-wide bonus Diamond Rush. The attention-grabbing alert prepares players for a fast rate of competitive, community style play where all players compete to deplete the vault and “steal” diamonds from other players on the bank. Also debuting on Empire Arena, Dragon Kingdom™ features two base games with wilds that accumulate to trigger the Dragon Wheel, which awards bonuses, progressives, and credit prizes.

Everi will also present two licensed themes on its larger-than-life hardware platform Renegade 3600™ – Press Your Luck® and Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker’s Wild®Press Your Luck is based on the 1980s television game show and revived on ABC primetime in June 2019. The theme features two base games along with an innovative hold-and-respin bonus, giving players the opportunity to experience the iconic game show right on the floor. Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker’s Wild is based on the popular Snoop Dogg-hosted version of the classic television game show that aired on TBS. Players compete by matching symbols on three reels and answering questions.

The single-screen Empire MPX cabinet returns to G2E with 11 unique themes on display including two persistent state games. Gift of the Nile™ and Dragon Flame™ feature a persistent wild-symbol feature as the eye and the flame from the dragon’s mouth come down and mysteriously pop up 3D wild symbols with every subsequent spin moving the player’s progress one-step forward. The Smokin Hot Stuff Jackpot® Respins™ game utilizes a unique take on the Company’s popular locking respin feature using mini games to add another layer of excitement. Little Shop of Horrors®, based on the popular movie featuring the unusual plant named Audrey II, features wilds in the base game that feed Audrey II and trigger the game’s biggest bonus – Mean Green Mother free spins. Both titles will feature Everi’s Apex Edge™ topper, a 27-inch monitor that sits atop the Empire MPXfeaturing game-controlled edge lighting and unique game content.

Everi’s Core HDX® cabinet remains popular with players thanks to its dual widescreen 23-inch, 1080p HD monitors, integrated touchscreens, and premium three-way sound system. Everi will feature a wealth of new content for the Core HDX cabinet including the new Jackpot Alert banked series that features quick hitting progressives. Triple Jackpot Gems™ and Triple Wild Dragons™ bring Everi’s popular high denomination mechanical reel games to the Core HDX, featuring volatile three-reel, nine-line games with classic symbols and multiplying wilds.

Everi will demonstrate completely new concepts and further brand extensions for its three-reel mechanical Player Classic® cabinet with more than 20 new games debuting at G2E 2019, all building on the success Everi continues to have in the high denomination mechanical space. Wild Rainbow Luck™ and Fortune Time™ along with Liberty Jackpots™ and Double Wild Gems™ will be featured on the Player Classic 26 with the Apex U™ topper. The Player Classic26 with Apex U enhances Everi’s Player Classic cabinet with additional merchandising on the larger 26-inch top box and video topper that displays game content and updates as players increase bets and earn prizes.

The enormous Zoltar 5X Pay™ and Zoltar Triple Jackpot™ premium mechanical bank is based on the all-knowing animatronic fortune-telling machine from Characters Unlimited, Inc., and features the iconic and recognizable voice of Zoltar, the great gypsy himself. Zoltar has made several appearances in television commercials and been seen in hundreds of locations around the world and in the homes of many collectors. Both games feature a free spin bonus where Zoltar predicts a multiplier between 2X – 10X with each free spin on the next reel stop. Smokin’ Hot Stuff Bonus Multipliers™ and Smokin’ Hot Stuff Double Jackpots™ is another premium mechanical product pairing that brings the successful progressive pick bonus of Smokin’ Hot Stuff Wicked Wheel to the Player Classic with multiple ways to win jackpots.

Triple Double Patriot™ and Triple Double Gems™ along with Triple Wild Dragon™, an extension of the successful Triple Jackpot Gems title, will all be on display at G2E on the Player Classic with the Skyline™ top box, enhancing the look and feel of the Player Classic with a vintage-inspired bezel.

Everi Recognized by 2020 Women on Boards for Having 20 Percent or More Corporate Board Seats Held By Women

LAS VEGAS, June 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), the casino gaming industry’s single source provider of gaming products and financial technology solutions, has been named a Winning ‘W’ Company by 2020 Women on Boards (“2020WOB”) for achieving at least 20 percent women on its board of directors before the year 2020. Eileen Raney and Maureen Mullarkey have served on Everi’s board of directors beginning in 2016 and 2018, respectively.

Winning ‘W’ Companies are cited in the 2020WOB annual Gender Diversity Index, which tracks the numbers of corporate board seats held by women among the Russell 3000 Index. The Russell 3000 Index is comprised of the 3,000 largest U.S. traded stocks representing approximately 98 percent of all U.S. incorporated equity securities.

“We are proud 2020WOB is recognizing Everi’s commitment to board diversity and thankful for the invaluable strategy and counsel Eileen and Maureen provide our leadership team and board of directors,” said Miles Kilburn, Board Chairman, at Everi. “We encourage more companies to embrace diversity and inclusion and continue to foster this culture not only at the board level, but at the company level as well. Our Women’s Leadership Initiative was put in place three years ago to do just that – to develop diverse leaders throughout the organization and to create opportunities and a path for advancement. Diverse talent and perspectives will enable us to continue to successfully execute on our key strategic initiatives to drive shareholder value, which must start at the top.”

“We applaud Everi’s board of directors for engaging the diverse opinions and perspectives of both genders on their board,” said Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, CEO of 2020 Women on Boards. “Studies have shown that the varied perspectives of women are uniquely valuable to corporations and the challenges they face today and can be key factors in profitability, productivity, and workforce engagement.”

2020WOB is a nonprofit organization that monitors and publishes how many women are on companies’ board of directors and ranks each company from ‘W’ for ‘Winning’ with at least 20 percent to ‘Z’ for Zero, meaning no women directors. Half the Russell 3000 companies still have only one woman director or none.

The 2018 nationwide statistic was 17.7 percent, a gain of 469 board seats for women, which is an improvement over the previous year at 16 percent. Of those, 295 were new seats created by expanding the board, not seats previously held by men. In total for 2018, approximately 25,250 board seats existed among the Russell 3000 companies with only 4,477 held by women.

About 2020 Women on Boards
2020 Women on Boards (2020WOB) is a global education and advocacy campaign committed to building public awareness and momentum towards the goal of achieving at least 20 percent of all public company board seats to be held by women by the year 2020, the milestone 100th anniversary that commemorates the 19th Amendment, when women won the right to vote. The campaign’s signature programs include the Gender Diversity Directory, a database which tracks the gender composition of company boards, the annual Gender Diversity Index report, and the National Conversation on Board Diversity events held in more than 30 cities each November. In just 9 short years, 2020WOB has become a respected global brand while building a reputation as a formidable advocate for advancing women to corporate boards.

Platform Positions Company to Accelerate Delivery of Proven Land-Based Game Content to Online Social and Real-Money Markets

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), the casino gaming industry’s only single source provider of gaming products and financial technology solutions, is now delivering a comprehensive portfolio of interactive gaming products with the launch of its Remote Game Server (“RGS”) which it will unveil at the 18th annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E®) at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas from October 9-11. Alongside the Company’s most diverse lineup of Games and FinTech solutions, Everi will show casino operators how they can seamlessly create an online gaming entertainment community uniquely tailored to their brand and player strategies through the RGS.

The RGS is a platform to develop and distribute new games with a strategy that allows operators to launch land-based, online real-money, and online social gaming channels with higher visibility and promotion. Everi will leverage its existing land-based portfolio to offer more than 50 titles on its RGS in 2019 to support the Company’s interactive gaming strategy focused on exceeding expectations by replicating Everi’s premium land-based gaming experience for online players. The RGS was recently launched to support online social gaming opportunities and will soon be available to licensed online real-money gaming operators following approval by independent gaming testing agencies and regulators by the end of the year.

“Everi is favorably positioned to help our customers benefit through the development of customized gaming experiences that will engage their existing patrons, attract new players, and help them grow their businesses,” said Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer, of Everi. “Our customers know Everi as a creator of world-class content with slot gaming entertainment that continues to raise the bar on excitement and player engagement.

We also have a tremendous library of high-performing stepper games that we are now leveraging including the successful launch of the High Rollin Vegas Slots™ online social casino. To date, our social and real-money interactive offerings are top performers and the launch of Everi’s RGS will be another catalyst as we ramp our activities. Our library uses proven land-based math models and themes that players love to play in both the three-reel mechanical and video multi-line games. Players connect and engage with Everi’s deep library of games and it’s exciting to be able to unlock this for online operators.”

Everi to Demonstrate Full Range of Financial Technology Solutions That Address the Current and Future Needs of the Gaming Floor at 2018 Global Gaming Expo

Company’s Leading Solutions Help Maximize Funds Delivered to the Casino Floor, Enable Data-Driven Decisions, and Set the Stage for the Transformation of Financial Technology Solutions Across the Casino Enterprise

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), the casino gaming industry’s only single source provider of gaming products and financial technology solutions, will debut a comprehensive portfolio of financial technology solutions that optimize casino operations and enhance the guest experience at the 18th annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E®), to be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center (Booth #1116) in Las Vegas from October 9-11. Alongside the Company’s largest-ever lineup of Games solutions, Everi FinTech will display its latest innovations that help operators responsibly deliver more cash to the casino floor and allow casino operators to maintain the highest level of compliance, all while driving gaming and non-gaming revenue.

“Each year, we process more than 100 million transactions across our secure network and drive almost $27 billion onto the floors of our casino partners,” said Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer, at Everi. “This scale and our expertise across the gaming industry’s financial technology space uniquely positions Everi to deliver integrated solutions that help casino operators maximize funds delivered to their casino floors while providing their guests with a rich, seamless experience. Our customers know that our commitment to innovation results in products that improve the efficiency of their cash access operations and provide them with the ability to make proactive and informed decisions around player behavior, such as through our Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance solutions. Everi’s advanced financial technology solutions on display at G2E 2018 will reinforce the fact we remain far ahead of the industry in creating products that address the industry’s current financial technology needs while also demonstrating the path forward as the market evolves.”

Darren Simmons, Everi’s FinTech Business Leader, added, “We’re focused on providing our customers with solutions that are fully integrated across all of the channels we address for the gaming industry’s financial technology needs. We remain committed to delivering industry-leading solutions that enable our customers to provide funds to the floor, meet their growing burden of regulatory obligations, and achieve the highest standard of network security, all with a keen eye on responsible gaming. This core foundation provides an excellent platform for Everi to develop the next generation of solutions that will provide customers with a 360-degree view of their guests, enabling them to make more informed decisions. These capabilities will be on display at G2E as we highlight how we are delivering the future of financial gaming technology, today.”

Everi FinTech product displays at G2E 2018 will also include integrated digital experience sessions where operators can interact with a combination of current, emerging, and future financial technology concepts, a new element for the show this year. Everi FinTech product demonstrations at G2E 2018 will include:

CashClub Wallet™ is a sophisticated, interactive digital wallet that consolidates payment options for players when integrated with Everi’s CashClub® software and full-service kiosks. CashClub Wallet allows players to store multiple payment methods, easily move funds in and out of the casino, and manage their spend limits, all aimed at supporting responsible gaming. CashClub Wallet also creates consistency across payment types through a convenient and efficient patron interface.

CashClub® Concierge is a personalized cash access cage service for VIPs as well as table games and high-limit room players that integrates mobile tablets and mobile point-of-sale (POS) devices through the CashClub software. CashClub Concierge eliminates the need for a player to move away from gaming to access additional funds as the product brings the cage to the player. Once players are enrolled in CashClub, they only need to visit the cage once for transactions to be authorized, retrieved, and completed on the floor.

Everi will have on display a number of its fully integrated kiosks including its newest full-service kiosks, the CXC 5.0 and CXC 5.0 L, that offer enhanced security features including self-frosting glass and a real-time rear view camera as well as plentiful branding and marketing space. Designed for smaller volume properties, the CXC 5.0 L offers similar services as the CXC 5.0, but with a smaller footprint and a lower price point. The space- and cost-efficient VersatileXchange™ (VXC) kiosk, a feature rich platform that can dispense cash or tickets, issue cards, convert currency, and/or configure enrollment, will also be on demonstration. All three of these kiosks will feature QuikTicket™, CashClub Wallet, ticket-in/ticket-out (TITO), bill breaking, and the Everi Cares™ Giving Module, the only premier cashless donation opportunity available in the gaming space.

Everi is teaming up with Atrient, a leading innovator in self-service loyalty kiosks for the gaming industry, to offer operators one-on-one demonstrations, showing how Atrient’s PowerKiosk™ combined with Everi’s multi-function CXC kiosks come together to enhance player loyalty and drive more funds to the gaming floor. Everi will also have two kiosks specifically tailored for international markets on display at the show.

Everi Compliance® AML solution is the gold standard for AML compliance across the industry. The product suite provides real-time tracking for all transactions on the casino floor and integrates with all major casino management systems. The system also completes, files, and archives forms required to comply with federal money laundering requirements.

Jackpot Xpress™ is a highly intuitive software platform that enables floor staff to securely and efficiently process jackpots using a mobile device (Jackpot Xpress Mobile) right at the player’s gaming machine or at the JackpotXchange® Lite (JXC-L) kiosk. Jackpot Xpress is the only jackpot management system that combines mobile productivity, secure kiosk payment, tax forms management, and AML tracking into a single solution. The technology effectively reduces or eliminates paper, reduces cage lines, player wait times, and improves efficiency of casino staff.

Everi’s CageXchange™ cash dispenser speeds up transactions, reduces cash shrinkage, and improves overall casino staff productivity. By reducing tedious manual cash counting, wait times are significantly shortened, allowing staff to focus more time on customer service and other cash room functions. CageXchange helps improve cage accuracy and stores cash securely, providing additional protection of funds while reducing counting and balancing times.

RecyclerXchange™ cash recycler removes the need for cashiers and tellers to count and verify currency, allowing staff to focus more time on customer service. RecyclerXchange automatically counts, stores, and sorts cash, allowing casinos to maximize cash inventory and tighten cash controls that positively impact operations. The product also increases a casino’s ability to flex services and space to meet evolving customer demands.

Everi’s CentralCredit® is the industry-leading repository for casino-related credit information and reporting to determine a patrons’ creditworthiness. The solution enables operators to quickly and efficiently make informed, proactive decisions for extending casino credit to patrons – as the platform provides real-time and seamless access to the industry’s largest gaming credit bureau. Similar to other solutions in Everi’s Intelligence toolkit, CentralCredit has helped operators grow market share and increase patron loyalty while increasing operational efficiencies.

Exciting New Hardware Platforms
As Everi continues to expand its game theme portfolio, the Company has developed new cabinets and other hardware platforms that help promote games, keep players engaged, and deliver new, immersive entertainment experiences. The new cabinet and hardware platforms debuting at G2E this year include:

The new Empire DCX™ premium video cabinet features dual curved 43-inch monitors with integrated edge lighting, a 4K display that provides an immersive player experience, enhanced game controlled lighting, and premium 4.1 surround sound. Expected to hit casino floors in mid-2019, the Empire DCX will debut at G2E with two branded game themes: The Mask™ and The Karate Kid™. The Mask slot game is based on New Line Cinema’s 1994 hit comedy that follow the misadventures of bank clerk Stanley Ipkiss, who is transformed into a manic hero when he wears a mysterious mask, and features exciting game play including mask reels with a nudge and pick feature and a free spin bonus. The Karate Kid is based on the popular feature film franchise [and now a Youtube Premium original series, Cobra Kai] that first debuted in 1984 featuring the struggles of Daniel LaRusso to overcome his transition to Southern California and a group of bullies with the help of Mr. Miyagi. The Karate Kid game features Miyagi Multipliers and a Young Hearts Respin that highlights LaRusso and his love interest Ali Mills.

Everi’s Renegade 3600™ offering is a larger-than-life hardware platform. The wide-area progressive (WAP) banked solution features three 43-inch convex curved monitors which combine to create a unique visual bonus experience along with a sign-based speaker package that supplements the sound capabilities of the individual Core HDX™ gaming cabinets. The platform offers a unique floor-wide celebration environment that is sure to turn heads. The Renegade 3600 will debut two new games: Smokin’ Hot Stuff Jackpots™, a new version of Smokin’ Hot Stuff™ based on the friendly and fiery comic book character, and Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker’s Wild™, which is based on the popular new Snoop Dogg-hosted version of the classic TV game show that airs on TBS and where players compete by matching symbols on three reels and answering questions.

Empire Arena™ offers an immersive gaming experience and bank-wide bonuses across a six-pod arrangement of Empire 5527™ cabinets, making it impossible to miss on the gaming floor. Empire Arena features edge-lit shelves and circular signage that amplifies the product’s merchandising capabilities. At G2E 2018, Empire Arena will be featured with four base video game themes and Discovery Channel’s Shark Week® bank wide bonus feature that brings undersea adventure to life in a spectacular way with big win celebrations.

Everi is a leader in the high-denomination three-reel mechanical reel market segment with games that continue to rank at the highest levels of industry performance. Building on this success, the Company’s new Skyline Revolve™ offering will introduce the first mechanical wheel top box feature for the popular Skyline™ top box which combines the traditional look and feel of the Player Classic® gaming cabinet with a vintage-inspired bezel for a thrilling reinvention of the classic mechanical cabinet. Skyline Revolve will debut at G2E with the latest extensions of games based on the Penn & Teller® and Casablanca® licenses, themes which have proven popular since their introduction on video platforms in 2016. The new platform also features dynamic lighting behind the wheel wedges and a physical bell that sounds during bonuses and big wins.

Growing Portfolio of Game Content
Everi has evolved its portfolio of gaming cabinets over the last several years and now delivers a broad range of unique cabinet designs to casinos across the U.S. and Canada. The Company is expanding its library of games featured on these cabinets and will highlight new and exciting gaming content at G2E 2018.

Since its introduction last year at G2E as a for-sale offering, the single-screen Empire MPX™ (the “E43”) has proven popular with players. With a smaller space requirement that allows for optimized bank configurations, the E43 enables operators to place more units in a dedicated space and save up to 25 percent of floor space compared to traditional bank configurations. The E43 features a 43-inch full HD display, game-controlled lighting with backlight feature, an ergonomic LCD button deck, and a USB charging dock.

New E43 standard games debuting at G2E 2018 include three new games for the Company’s Lightning Zap Jackpots™ series which does away with reels, lines, and pay tables to create an entirely new player experience. These new game extensions capitalize on the game’s proven formula for success with simplicity, random events, and huge upside. Each theme – Electric Rush™, Power Burst™ and Super Charge™ – offers different features and distinct volatility levels. Everi’s Apex Edge™ topper, a 27-inch monitor that sits atop the E43 cabinet and features game controlled edge lighting and unique game content displayed on the screen, will be featured on E43 for-sale offerings at the show. MoneyBall® will also debut on the E43 standard cabinet featuring a random ball that awards static jackpots in a unique bonus event execution.

A new premium offering for the E43 cabinet that will debut at G2E is South Park®, the wildly successful animated sitcom on Comedy Central that is currently in its 22nd season. The game incorporates some of the show’s more unforgettable scenes and characters including They Killed Kenny free spins, a Professor Chaos multiplier feature, and Cupid Me Wilds features.

The Empire 5527™ premium cabinet features a portrait-oriented 55-inch upper display and landscape-oriented 27-inch lower display to dazzle players. The Empire 5527 leverages proven technology from the Empire MPX to deliver an exciting new player experience with visuals never before seen on an Everi gaming device. New games debuting on the Empire 5527 cabinet include Press Your Luck®, based on the popular television game show which brings the excitement of table play to the slot floor. Felix the Cat®, a new game based on the iconic character that sprang from the age of silent films and first debuted nearly 100 years ago, will also be on display. Felix the Cat features seven interactive bonuses, progressives available on all bets, and easy to understand all scatter pays.

Since its introduction in early 2017, Everi’s Core HDX® gaming cabinet has proven to be popular with players with its dual widescreen 23-inch, 1080p HD monitors, integrated touchscreens, and premium 3-way sound system. Lazer Lock™, a banked multi-denomination linked progressive offering with four themes – Jade Empire™, Ice Sapphire™, Flame Ruby™, and Pharaoh’s Treasure™ – will be featured on the Core HDX. Lazer Lock features two unique free spin bonuses – one with wild multipliers and another with a three-reel symbol – and higher bets that provide players with better progressive odds. Everi will also have on display Pop-N-Win™ on the Core HDX. Pop-N-Win is a banked, premium linked progressive game that features a custom faux-skill bonus game that mimics an asynchronous timed TournEvent® style game. Yardbirds 2 Foxy's Revenge®, Shark Attack®, and Honey Bear® will be featured as the base games at the show.

Built with the operator in mind, the CXC 5.0 kiosk provides ample branding and marketing space on the second screen as well as on custom fit LCD panels between each kiosk in wall or pod configurations.

Operators selecting the CXC 5.0L benefit from similar properties, security features and marketing opportunities, all on a smaller footprint device.

Everi Cares™ Giving Module, Everi’s revolutionary new socially conscious ticket redemption product, provides players with the opportunity to donate the change (or more) from their gaming ticket to select charities.

AML Intelligence for Everi Compliance® combines the Company’s deep experience in gaming AML with VizExplorer’s industry-proven analytics platform to help operators quickly identify potentially suspicious activity. As casino systems create an ever-increasing amount of data, proper tools are necessary to sift through this data to extract meaningful intelligence and insight.
