VIENNA, 22nd November 2022 - Greentube, the NOVOMATIC Digital Gaming and Entertainment division, is inviting players to experience a quacking adventure in its latest magical release Diamond Tales™: The Ugly Duckling.

The five-reel slot with 40 win lines, created in collaboration with Intellectual Property owner RoyalCasino Denmark, is based around the famous fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen. The storyline unfolds as players progress through each season and live the journey of the ugly duckling developing into a beautiful swan.

The aim of the base game is to collect Diamond Hearts in the Special Reel to help progress the story and reach the Swan Feature. These diamond hearts also influence your winnings in the Diamond Tales feature.

The Snap Drop feature can be triggered at any point in the base game. All the player must do is land a Snap Drop symbol on the fifth reel, with Diamond Hearts in the Special Reel. The Snap Drop Feature awards the player one free respin, where only Diamond Hearts with multipliers on them appear on the reels. Following the respin, all the multipliers are added up, with this sum multiplying the player’s stake.

The Diamond Tales™ Feature is triggered by three Book Bonus Symbols appearing on reels one, three and five. The player enters the feature with one extra Heart added to every space in the Special Reel. Three Free Spins are awarded, which re-trigger every time a new Diamond Heart falls on the main reels. If a Red Diamond Heart appear on a reel, its value will be added to any Red Diamond Hearts that previously landed on the same reel.

Gold Diamond Hearts act as multipliers in the feature. With each consecutive chapter of the game, starting with Spring and ending with the Swan Feature, an additional Gold Diamond Heart is added to the Diamond Tales™ Feature, up to a maximum of five.

Diamond Tales™: The Ugly Duckling also includes a Buy Bonus feature that takes players straight into the Diamond Tales feature, in those jurisdictions where it is permitted.

Markus Antl, Head of Sales and Key Account Management at Greentube, said: “We wanted to create a world that evokes beauty and possibility and in Diamond Tales™: The Ugly Duckling, our design team has done exactly that.

“On top of a well-known story line we created a game that includes several features and develops throughout its gameplay. Diamond Tales™: The Ugly Duckling is an exciting title that will have players on the edge of their seats as they aim to give the fairy tale a truly happy ending. We see this title as one that will appeal to a wide range of players in markets worldwide.”

Per Petersen, CEO of RoyalCasino, said: “The Ugly Duckling is a well-known and much-loved tale across the world. With its origins in Denmark, we are thrilled to have worked together with Greentube to introduce the story as a slot to players around the globe.

“We are thrilled with the result as the game really does the original fairy tale justice while adding an element of excitement and thrill. We can’t wait to let customers experience the story once more as they help The Ugly Duckling evolve into a swan with winnings along the way.”

Casino Marketing Boot Camp's popular virtual training for casino advertisers is open for registration. The weekly sessions begin January 17, 2023, and will take place on Tuesdays for 8 weekly discussions on media, creativity, and utilizing your database to drive your advertising decisions. 

The sessions are taught by founder Julia Carcamo and Adele George of AM George Marketing & Advertising. Office hours are offered to aid students with the lessons. 

"Taking what you might have learned about advertising outside of a casino environment and making it fit isn’t always as easy as we would hope," said Carcamo. "Casino advertising managers spend days worried that their budgets will get cut while they watch others stay the same (or even increase) as the demands of the market increase. The fact is advertising done well can be just as valuable as any of the other tools casino marketers use. Because advertising is typically targeted at new customers or those not already in our databases, the reinvestment on an advertising-driven visit can often be lower."

The course is designed to solidify the role of advertising in the casino marketing landscape to be better and smarter than the average advertiser.

Screen_Shot_2022-11-15_at_5.59.07_PM.png


Aristocrat Leisure Limited (ASX: ALL) today announced its financial results for the 12 months ended 30 September 2022.

Aristocrat delivered a high quality result, with strong revenue and profit growth reflecting sustained investment in top-performing product portfolios, differentiating capabilities, increased operational diversification and business resilience.

Normalised profit after tax and before amortisation of acquired intangibles (NPATA) of $1,099.3 million represents an increase of 27% in reported terms, and 20% in constant currency, compared to the prior corresponding period (PCP). This was driven by exceptional performance in North American Gaming Operations and global Outright Sales, despite supply chain disruptions and mixed operating conditions across key markets.

Aristocrat Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Trevor Croker, said “Aristocrat’s performance underlines the ongoing implementation of our growth strategy. Throughout the year, we continued to invest in competitive product portfolios to drive further share growth across key segments, greater operational diversification and deeper business capability.

“Aristocrat delivered an increase in revenues of almost 18% year on year, and an annual profit of $1.1 billion that exceeded our 2019 financial year performance by approximately 23%. This highlights the strength of our post-COVID recovery and our ability to execute in a challenging environment.

“Strong performance in Aristocrat Gaming more than offset headwinds in the Pixel United business, again highlighting the increasing diversification and resilience of our Group.

“We have made further progress in our ‘build and buy’ strategy to scale in online RMG, with the launch of our new business, Anaxi. While we are focusing first on the North American i-Gaming vertical, we ultimately aim to be the leading gaming platform within the global online RMG industry. We will continue to invest behind this key adjacent growth opportunity as we build Anaxi over the medium-term.

“Aristocrat took significant steps forward in leadership and capability, while continuing to execute against our ambitious ESG commitments. This included preparatory work to allow us to set a science-based emissions reduction target for the Group in calendar 2023. In addition, we made progress in our responsible gameplay agenda, rolled out an enhanced anti-modern slavery training programme and achieved an above-benchmark employee engagement score for the year.

“Our performance highlights the incredible resilience and commitment of our team of over 7,500 people around the world. I want to thank each of our people for their hard work, and their care for each other, as we navigated the conflict in Ukraine and other challenges across the year.

“As we look ahead, we believe that Aristocrat’s outstanding product portfolios, growing operational resilience and capability, along with a highly engaged team and strong culture, positions us well to maintain our momentum despite uncertain conditions,” Mr Croker concluded.


FINANCIAL SUMMARY

Group revenue increased to $5.6 billion, representing a 17.7% increase in reported terms and 12.0% in constant currency compared to the PCP.

Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortisation (EBITDA) of $1,850.9 million was 20% higher on a reported basis and 14% higher on a constant currency basis compared to the PCP.

Strong operating cash flows and superior financial fundamentals were maintained, ensuring the business retains full strategic optionality and the ability to fund both organic investment and inorganic acceleration options.

The Group’s balance sheet maintained the business’ optionality, with a net cash position of $564 million and liquidity of $3.8 billion at 30 September 2022.

The Directors have authorised a final fully franked dividend of 26.0 cps (A$171.5 million)2 for the period ended 30 September 2022, taking the full year fully franked dividends to 52.0cps (A$345.3 million)2. The record and payment dates for the final dividend are 1 December 2022 and 16 December 2022, respectively.

Cash of $660 million was appropriately returned to shareholders through dividends and onmarket share buy-back, in line with the Group’s established capital allocation framework.

 

OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

Aristocrat’s portfolio of scaled, world-class Gaming and Pixel United assets continued to grow and diversify over the 12 months to 30 September 2022, off the back of ongoing investment and high quality execution.

This was driven by exceptional performance in North American Gaming Operations and global Outright Sales, despite supply chain disruptions and mixed operating conditions across key markets.

Pixel United delivered a resilient performance in a challenging environment, as overall mobile bookings moderated post COVID-driven peaks in the PCP.

Through the second half, Aristocrat continued to protect its people and business in Ukraine, providing comprehensive support to employees. Around three quarters of our people were assisted to relocate to safer places within Ukraine or abroad. Operational disruptions were minimised by leveraging capability across the Pixel United business, with new studios opened in Poland, Spain and Canada, and Ukraine utilisation rates were approaching pre-conflict levels at period end.

Aristocrat made significant progress in executing its ‘build and buy’ strategy to scale in online RMG, with the launch of its new business, Anaxi. Online RMG is a material growth and diversification opportunity that will provide further channels for the distribution of the Group’s world-leading content.

The Group continued to invest strongly in product and technology, along with innovation, operational excellence and customer engagement, to drive further share growth across key markets, segments and game genres. Design and Development (D&D) investment remained at a market-leading 12%, and disciplined User Acquisition (UA) was also delivered.

Highlights for the period included: Aristocrat Gaming:

• Strong revenue growth across Americas and ANZ led by increasing product portfolio depth and strength, with Class III Premium installed base growing by 14.0% to 31,595 units and Class III and Class II FPD increasing by 8.5% to US$55.78;

• Americas margin expanded 2.7 percentage points to 56.1%, driven by revenue growth and strong management of the installed base, more than offsetting higher input costs driven by supply chain challenges;

• Americas Outright Sales units up 66%, fuelled by larger customer capital commitments and increased product penetration, with MarsXTM and MarsXTM Portrait cabinets driving Average Selling Price up 8%; and

• Expansion into attractive adjacent markets continues, with growth in VLT and Washington CDS, and entry into Kentucky Historical Horse Racing and New York Lottery.

Pixel United:

• Gained further share overall and maintained its status as a Top 5 mobile games publisher in Tier-1 western markets3, with 6 of the top 100 mobile games in the US across multiple genres at 30 September 2022;

• Retained leading positions in key genres, including #1 position in the Social Slots segment, #2 in the broader Social Casino genre, #1 in the Squad RPG (Role-Playing Games) segment and #3 in the Casual Merge segment according to industry data (Sensor Tower);

• Average Bookings Per Daily Active User (ABPDAU) grew 11%, driven by improved performance in Social Casino and RPG, Strategy & Action;

• Moved proactively to cease operating its mobile games in Russia during the year. This market historically contributed approximately 3% of annualised Pixel United bookings, primarily in the Plarium portfolio; and

• Continued to strengthen and diversify operations for future growth, including opening new studios in Poland, Spain and Canada, and bringing further game development capabilities to the business.

 

OUTLOOK

Aristocrat expects to deliver NPATA growth over the full year to 30 September 2023, assuming no material change in economic and industry conditions, reflecting:

• Continued strong revenue and profit growth from Aristocrat Gaming, underpinned by market-leading positions and recurring revenue drivers in Gaming Operations;

• Lower growth in bookings and profit from Pixel United, compared to recent years; and

• Further investment in Anaxi, to support our online RMG ambitions.

Over the medium-term, Aristocrat aims to:

• Continue to gain market share in all key segments;

• Deliver high quality, profitable growth;

• Continuously invest in D&D to improve competitiveness and breadth of product;

• Invest to diversify our business in line with strategy; and

• Effectively manage capital to support long-term growth and maximise shareholder returns.

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Galaxy Gaming, Inc. (OTCQB: GLXZ), a developer and distributor of casino table games and enhanced systems for land-based casinos and iGaming content, announced today its financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Financial Highlights

Q3 2022 vs. Q3 2021

Revenue increased 12% to $5,907K
Adjusted EBITDA decreased 5% to $2,350K
Net loss of $(699)K vs. net income of $874K
9 Months 2022 vs. 9 Months 2021

Revenue increased 22% to $17,502K
Adjusted EBITDA increased 17% to $7,382K
Net loss of $(1,828)K vs. net income of $1,513K
Balance Sheet Changes (vs. December 31, 2021)

Cash increased 20% to $19,275K
Total long-term debt1 (gross) decreased to $59,550K from $60,500K
Stockholders’ deficit increased to $(18,506)K from $(17,286)K
Executive Comments

“Despite the continued strengthening of the US dollar, we had an excellent quarter,” said Todd Cravens, President and CEO. “On a constant currency basis, revenue increased by 19% in the quarter and 27% in the first nine months vs. the same periods in 2021. As compared to Q2 2022, sequential revenue growth was 6% on a constant currency basis. But the most newsworthy event happened after the end of the quarter at G2E – the gaming show held annually in Las Vegas. We introduced several new games and new technologies that were very well received by clients. In fact, we already have several commitments to trial some of these new products.

“Finally, at the end of the quarter, in consideration of a $2 million cash payment, we eliminated the obligation to make contingent consideration payments to the original seller of the intellectual property supporting our Bonus Craps™ side bet. Based on the run rate in Q3, this should save us around $315K on an annual basis and potentially more as Bonus Craps deployments increase.”

_____________________

1 Includes current portion.

“Exchange rates, interest rates and inflation rates worsened in Q3,” stated Harry Hagerty, Galaxy’s CFO. “The dollar continued to appreciate versus the Euro and the British Pound, and the floating rate upon which our interest expense is calculated increased by 138 basis points in the quarter. Inflation continues to affect us as most of our expenses are denominated in US dollars, and the current quarter reflects a higher-than-normal level of professional services expenses as we strengthen our financial systems and our intellectual property protection. But despite the challenges, the Company is performing well, as Todd’s comments about revenue in constant currency and our G2E performance attest. Our balance sheet improved in the quarter with increased cash balances and modestly reduced debt balances, and we were comfortably in compliance with the financial covenant in our Fortress credit agreement.

“The worsening rates environment requires us to modestly modify our guidance for the remainder of the current year,” Hagerty added. “We now forecast revenue in the midpoint of the previously expressed range of $22.5-$23.5 million and Adjusted EBITDA at the low end of the previously expressed range of $10-11 million. This forecast assumes no new lockdowns from COVID-19 or the equivalent, no worsening of the impact to our business from the war in Ukraine, and no economic recession.”

On November 11, 2022, the Board of Directors reauthorized repurchases of the Company’s common stock of up to $750,000, subject to the Company remaining in compliance with the provisions of the Term Loan Credit Agreement and, in particular, the $750,000 restricted payments basket.

“With this acquisition, NOVOMATIC is sending a clear signal of further international expansion and can double its market share as a concessionaire in one of the key European gaming markets,” underlines NOVOMATIC Executive Board Member Ryszard Presch.

NOVOMATIC Executive Board Member Johannes Gratzl adds: “With this successful closing of one of the largest takeover transactions in our company history, we have laid the foundation for further sustainable growth.”

In addition to the technological market leadership that has already existed for years, NOVOMATIC is now one of the largest operators of VLTs and AWPs in Italy in the operational segment and will further develop the online gaming and sports betting segments in this market in the future. With this transaction, the number of employees of the Group has increased to more than 3,000 in Italy and to more than 21,900 worldwide. For Markus Büchele, CEO of NOVOMATIC Italia, this is a reason to rejoice: “Exactly in the year of our 15th anniversary in Italy, we can continue on a very successful path thanks to a great partnership with HBG and grow further together.”

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
• Total revenue increased approximately 16% year-over-year to $78.3 million. Table Products revenue advanced 30% versus the
prior year, reflecting outsized growth within our progressive installed base, growing demand for our PAX S single-deck card
shuffler, further adoption of our AGS Arsenal site license offering, and the Q1 2022 Lucky Lucky side bet acquisition. EGM
revenue increased by more than 15% year-over-year, paced by EGM sales revenue growth of over 50%. Global EGM sales
topped 1,000 units for the first time since Q4 2019, reflecting successful execution of our strategy to broaden our global
customer account penetration, continued recovery in North American replacement unit demand and complementary EGM sales
into international markets. Interactive revenue grew to $2.6 million in Q3 2022 as we continue to benefit from outsized growth
within our Real Money Gaming ("RMG") business. Total revenue improved approximately 2% over the $76.6 million delivered
in Q2 2022, representing our seventh consecutive quarter of sequential total revenue growth.
• Gaming operations, or recurring revenue, increased 6% year-over-year to $56.6 million. Domestic EGM recurring revenue
improved by 4% versus the prior year, topping $45 million for the second consecutive quarter. Our growing premium game
mix, improved core content execution, further implementation of optimization initiatives, and a stable domestic gaming
macroeconomic backdrop boosted our Q3 2022 Domestic EGM recurring revenue performance. International EGM recurring
revenue advanced 16% year-over-year, paced by the consistent macroeconomic recovery underway throughout Mexico. To
that end, International EGM recurring revenue has now increased sequentially for nine consecutive quarters. Table Products
recurring revenue increased by more than 25% year-over-year to a record $3.8 million, supported by growth across all product
verticals. Table Products revenue has also increased sequentially for nine consecutive quarters. In aggregate, recurring revenue
accounted for over 70% of our consolidated Q3 2022 revenue mix.
• We generated $476 thousand of net income in Q3 2022 compared to a net loss of $1.8 million in the prior year period. The
year-over-year increase in our reported net income was predominantly driven by our strong year-over-year revenue growth,
which contributed to Q3 2022 operating income of $9.0 million compared to $7.0 million in Q3 2021. Q3 2022 marked the
second consecutive quarter in which we were able to generate positive net income.
• Total Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP)(1) increased 8% year-over-year to $34.5 million compared to $31.9 million in Q3 2021.
Year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA growth within the Table Products and EGM segments of approximately 57% and 6%,
respectively, was partially offset by a decline within the Interactive segment, as we continued to incur modest incremental
expense in order to accelerate the flow of new AGS game content into the North American RMG channel over the coming
quarters. Adjusted EBITDA increased modestly on a quarterly sequential basis relative to the $34.1 million delivered in
Q2 2022.
• Total Adjusted EBITDA margin (non-GAAP)(1) was 44.0% compared to 47.4% in Q3 2021. The year-over-year change in our
Adjusted EBITDA margin was predominantly driven by a greater mix of EGM unit sales revenue, which carries a lower gross
margin as compared to EGM gaming operations revenue, further post-COVID normalization in our discretionary business
operating expenses and market-level inflationary cost fluctuations. Total Adjusted EBITDA margin compressed modestly
versus the 44.6% achieved in Q2 2022, largely a function of unfavorable changes in revenue and product mix.
