On June 26, the NOVOMATIC Group celebrated the opening of its second casino operation in the independent region of Andalusia in Spain: Casino ADMIRAL Sevilla. After a year of meticulous renovation and refurbishment, the new casino complex welcomes guests to a splendid gaming, dining and entertainment offer that sets new standards in and around Seville.

After about one year of renovation and refurbishment, the new Casino ADMIRAL Sevilla officially opened its doors with a big event for more than 300 invitees and VIP guests. Delegates such as Manuel Vázquez Martín, General Director of Taxes, Finance and Gaming of the Spanish Government in Andalusia, as well as Jose Luis Sanz, the Major of Tomares, and representatives of the local municipality, executives and leading representatives of major business partners and tourist institutions, key players of the Spanish casino industry, specialist media and the local press were joined by top executives of NOVOMATIC Spain and ADMIRAL Casinos Spain.

The event was hosted by the management team of ADMIRAL Casinos Spain and NOVOMATIC Spain who were proud to introduce the ADMIRAL brand to the region of Seville. Keynote speakers Manfred Schartner, Managing Director ADMIRAL Casinos Spain, and Francisco Vidal, COO ADMIRAL Casinos Spain welcomed guests to an evening programme of culinary delights, entertainment and surprises. The agenda included a magic show performance, live music, as well as a full presentation of the complete offer of the venue – but first and foremost: drinks, dinner and a party to celebrate the arrival of the Casino ADMIRAL in Seville.

The newest member of the Spanish ADMIRAL casino estate is located in Tomares, a small town at the summit of Aljarafe hills, outside Seville. First opened in 2006 under the original name Gran Casino Aljarafe as the first and only casino in Seville, it was acquired by the NOVOMATIC Group in 2016. Detailed planning and the complete renovation and refurbishment of the majority of the premises created a venue that now complies with the high NOVOMATIC quality standards. It took more than a year and an investment of some EUR 6 million to complete the new Casino ADMIRAL Sevilla – with 7,000 sqm of space for gaming floors, Poker areas, restaurants and show venues to cater for a complete entertainment offer. Also, the casino has created additional jobs in the region.

Most of the facilities of the former Grand Casino Aljarafe have been rearranged and the entire utilization modified to create a guest experience in the true ADMIRAL casino and entertainment style. The refurbishment also created new space with two terraces and an extended gaming area. 1,000 sqm of floor space comprises ultra-modern live tables, slots and sport betting terminals, as well as a dedicated Poker Room for weekly poker tournaments as well as hosting the national and regional Poker series. The casino offers the largest variety of live games in the entire province of Seville: Poker cash tables (Omaha & Texas Hold’em), American Roulette, Black Jack and Caribbean Poker, as well as two modern electronic Roulettes. Moreover, Casino ADMIRAL Sevilla has more than 100 state-of-the-art slot machines with leading games and the latest in terms of technology.

The Admiral Arena Sports Bar has been added to the casino offer providing sports betting with all the amenities that real sports lovers deserve: a great social atmosphere and large video walls to enjoy the most exciting football matches, rugby, super bowl or any other sports event, together with friends and fellow sports fans. Special culinary delights are offered by the Kaori restaurant with its new Sushi Bar and Teppanyaki grill or at the Miami Lounge Bar that puts on a tasty menu based on Spanish and Andalusian specialities in a beautiful outdoor area with a wood-burning oven and a lavish BBQ grill.

The full-service offer at Casino ADMIRAL Sevilla is complemented by the 500 sqm event and convention venue Sala Tarsis. Its features, location and infrastructure recommend it as the perfect place to organize social events, seminars or business meetings. The experienced team at the Casino ADMIRAL Sevilla is on hand to organize any kind of private or public event.

The result of the transformation of the Casino ADMIRAL Sevilla is a new and modern integral space for leisure and entertainment near the largest city of Andalusia that combines leading technology, excellence in service and premium entertainment in true ADMIRAL style. In short, the Casino ADMIRAL Sevilla welcomes guests to a variety of things to enjoy: top gastronomy, regular events & shows, premium gaming and betting technology, poker tournaments, live sports events & much more.

Manfred Schartner, Managing Director ADMIRAL Casinos Spain, said: “This fantastic re-inauguration of the Casino ADMIRAL Sevilla, following the complete refurbishment, is another important step in growing our operational business in Andalusia and Spain. The positive feedback we receive daily from our customers and partners is a big motivation for us to continue our successful strategy.”

Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) ("Scientific
Games" or the “Company") recently announced the launch of GM Atlas, a brand new table progressive operating system. GM Atlas succeeds the Company’s earlier progressive systems, Game Manager 1 and Game Manager 2, and ties together all of the best features from these previous platforms.

GM Atlas, Scientific Games’ latest progressive operating system, provides operators with the flexibility to configure Must-Hit-By prizes, and the option to customize table signs to easily promote table game jackpot meters property-wide. This system features a convenient and easyto-use dashboard, one-click navigation to various reports and other helpful tools, and a robust offering of live information. The GM Atlas enhanced progressive system also includes the upgraded NXS Command® II table game hardware, which is compatible with many generations of bet devices.


“You see a lot of companies today dabbling in the world of progressive jackpots for table games,” said Roger Snow, Senior Vice President at Scientific Games. “But we’ve been at this for a long time, working side by side with our customers to give their customers—the players—the features they want. And GM Atlas is the latest and greatest example of that approach to doing business. There’s beautiful signage, easy-to-use hardware and behind it all, a method to take that one wager and drive several jackpots simultaneously. It’s one heck of a product.”


Soboba Casino Resort in southern California was the first casino to upgrade to GM Atlas, across nine table games. The upgraded table progressives include EZ Baccarat®, Fortune Pai Gow Poker®, and Multi Game Link (Ultimate Texas Hold’em® and Three Card Poker). Soboba is utilizing the best features from previous Scientific Games table progressive systems, including dual hot spots, single coin sensor, and the must-hit-by progressive. Although GM Atlas offers support for several progressive levels, Soboba will be opening with a single level progressive with mystery to support high paying jackpots as well as player bonusing.


“We are very excited to be the first casino to roll out the new GM Atlas progressive system. It has been a hit with the customers and gives them the opportunity for more frequent paybacks, including the must-hit-by jackpot,” said Stewart Madden, Director of Table Games at Soboba Casino Resort. “We have also seen an increase in revenue as the player participation has grown, which is easy to track with the improved automated reports.”

London & Dublin - July 1, 2019: GAN plc ("GAN" or the "Company"), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gambling software and services in the United States and Europe, today provides an update on trading for the second calendar quarter period ending June 30, 2019.

In the second calendar quarter period ending June 30, 2019 trading was ahead of expectations with the seasonal decline in Internet gambling volumes typically experienced during the early months of Summer mitigated by various factors including:

· High demand in Q2 for Internet sports betting on both basketball and baseball in New Jersey, despite the cessation in Q1 of the primary U.S. sports season relating to American Football; and

· Higher than expected casino cross-selling from Internet sports bettors into internet casino gaming in New Jersey during the Q2 period.


2019 Outlook

The outlook for 2019 continues to remain highly positive for GAN. Internet gambling services to Parx Casino, the largest casino in Pennsylvania, commenced on June 24, 2019 with Internet casino gaming for Parx Casino expected to commence later this month. In the second half of the year, GAN expects to launch internet gambling services for a number of additional clients. In addition, GAN expects to enter into a number of new contracts for real money internet gambling.

The Company now expects to see high double-digit revenue growth for the full year 2019.

The outlook for the full calendar year 2019 is contingent on (a) the market size and clients' market share and growth rate of Internet gambling in New Jersey and Pennsylvania; (b) the speed with which efficient marketing of the Overseas Internet Casino is conducted in European regulated markets by GAN; (c) the impact on Italian Internet casino market by the Italian ban on advertising gambling anticipated to be fully implemented in 2019.


Management Commentary

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN, commented, "Continued demand for Internet sports betting in New Jersey, and the associated benefit to Internet casino gaming, has outperformed our expectations through the second calendar quarter. In the second half of this year, we remain focused on landing new clients, and expanding upon existing contracts with clients, in addition to preparing ourselves for a rapidly expanding market due to an acceleration in sports betting-led online gambling regulation in the United States as well as enabling browser-based Internet gambling on Apple iOS compatible mobile devices as mitigation of Apple, Inc. policy changes towards HTML5-based real money gambling Apps."


Company Schedules 2019 First Half Financial Results

Italy is a stimulating market for the NOVOMATIC Group, despite the increasingly stringent fiscal pressure. Italy's horizon is expanding, now more than ever, towards growth and expansion opportunities – with a new Board of Directors that will steer NOVOMATIC Italia to further development and success.

Italy is the largest European gaming market in in terms of number of active gaming machines, a fact that is reflected by the NOVOMATIC Group's sustained commitment to this market and the latest decision to promote a new course with a strategic restructuring and nomination of a new Board of Directors.

The new Board of Directors is headed by Chairman Franco Rota who has been part of the management team since the market entry in 2007. His vision has allowed the Group to become a key player in the VLT sector, as a provider of proven NOVOMATIC gaming technologies and games to all Italian VLT concessionairies. He said: “It makes me proud to see how in almost 12 years NOVOMATIC Italia has grown to become a leading provider of services and technologies of all kinds. There is no segment of the Italian gaming market that we haven’t scrutinized to deliver highly specialized and advanced know how. It is a great achievement to see that today the company that started out in 2007 with a handful of employees, has become a large enterprise with 2,800 staff.”

Olga Rodrigo's recent nomination as Chief Executive Officer demonstrates how experience and competence meld with the multinational nature of the Group. Her professional career has seen her in the Italian gaming sector since the enactment of the regulatory system, gaining a deep knowledge of the Italian market, both of the regulations and of the complexity of the players that compose the system of Italian legal gaming. After a key role in her country of origin as CFO of NOVOMATIC Spain, Olga Rodrigo has now returned to Italy. She said: “I am very happy to put my enthusiasm and my expertise at the service of NOVOMATIC Italia. The NOVOMATIC Group proves its commitment to Italy as one of the most important countries in Europe. It is therefore essential to consolidate and increase our market leadership by leveraging synergy and collaboration: I am sure that only by working together and sharing common goals, we can obtain the expected results that can allow everyone to feel like active protagonists in their own professional reality.”

Also on the Board of Directors of NOVOMATIC Italia is CFO Markus Buechele. He started his NOVOMATIC career in 2006 at the headquarters in Austria and has been part of the Board of NOVOMATIC Italia since 2008. He said: "I was able to actively contribute to the fantastic growth of the Group from the beginning – and also throughout delicate times for the Italian legal gaming sector, from the fiscal and regulatory point of view. I feel a great responsibility to all my colleagues and to our reference stakeholder, the mother company, and I am proud of the work done in recent years. It is essential to continue working together and to face the objective difficulties of the whole sector with a spirit of teamwork and the necessary motivation to make a difference compared to our competitors.”

The new constitution of the Board of Directors was augmented by a new personality, Karl Plank, who joined the top management as Chief Operating Officer (COO). A renowned entrepreneur of the Italian gaming industry made in Italy, he became part of the NOVOMATIC family in 2008 with the take-over of Allstar. "It is an honour for me to be on this Board of Directors,” he said. “My commitment will be focused on the Gaming Operations, with the aim to develop a collaborative work so that NOVOMATIC Italia becomes a best practice example for the legal Italian gaming sector. Not only as far as the gaming offer is concerned but also with regard to the best practices in terms of Responsible Gaming, from the environmental point of view but also as an employer.”

Bartholomäus Czapkiewicz, CTO NOVOMATIC Italia since June 2017, commented in the same vein, emphasizing the value of teamwork, recognition and trust in the skills of each resource: "We are working towards a process of organisational simplification, towards responsibility and the valorization of everyone's abilities”, said Czapkiewicz. He continued: “We strongly believe that the key to success lies in technological evolution and in taking new roads, confirming the pioneering nature of the Group, and being the forerunner in innovation".

With these strategic players and entrepreneurial concepts, NOVOMATIC aims to spearhead a new scenario in Italy, developing long-term objectives for the Group to benefit from every possible regulatory situation, through the synergic commitment of all the realities.

Founded in 1912 Barrière is dedicated to offering high-end leisure and entertainment amenities based on more than a hundred years of tradition and shaped by three generations of visionary entrepreneurs.

Located in iconic seaside and spa resorts, top tourist attract ions and major cities, the Barrière casinos are home to a total of more than 6,200 slot machines, more than 900 electronic table games (750 NOVOMATIC ETGs), and more than 250 live gaming tables. To maintain the highest standards in terms of gaming technology and innovation, Barrière relies on leading international OEMs – among them NOVOMATIC with whom the Group maintains long-standing business relations based on trust, premium product quality and excellent service. NOVOMATIC games and machines can be found throughout most of the Barrière casino estate.

In 2011, Barrière was the premier French casino operator to introduce NOVOMATIC ETGs – with the first NOVOMATIC electronic Roulette at the casino in Niederbronn. Today, the number one casino in Enghien-les-Bains offers a lavish NOVOMATIC ETG Roulette installation with 82 NOVOSTAR® SL 1.27 and EXECUTIVE SL™ 1.24 player stations connected to fully automated NOVO Multi-Roulette™ wheels. The Casino Barrière in Toulouse has even more player positions: This ETG installation comprises 90 terminals and is the biggest in mainland Europe. Another popular sight in the Barrière ETG areas is the elegant LOTUS Roulette™ island unit with six integrated player stations. One of these fully automated Roulette islands is presented at the Casino Barrière Sainte-Maxime's live gaming area – with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez.

Recently, NOVOMATIC equipment at Barrière has seen an increasing surge of upgrades. The latest cabinets have been installed with a variety of multi-game editions and single games – and recently, especially the NOVO LINE Novo Unity™ II ETG offer has been greatly expanded with 174 additional ETG terminals in the first quarter of 2019 only. Impressive NOVOMATIC ETG installations can be found in locations such as Enghien-les-Bains, Toulouse or Lille, to name only three.

Guests of Barrière Casinos find all the latest NOVOMATIC Curve cabinets like the PANTHERA™ Curve 1.43, V.I.P. Lounge™ Curve 1.43 and NOVOSTAR® V.I.P. Royal 2.65 with the market-specific NOVO LINE™ Interactive Concurve and Impera-Line™ HD ‘France’ multi-game editions or a broad choice of Standalone Progressive titles like Book of Ra™ - Mystic Fortunes, Goddess Rising™ and Treasures of Tut™ as well as the highly popular Asian theme Asian Fortunes™ and the gripping Voodoo Fortunes™.

These games ideally complement the growing range of NOVOMATIC curve cabinets featuring upright 4K UHD LED screens. In particular, the V.I.P. series of cabinets is a perfect fit for the Barrière approach to excellence and style. Their V.I.P. chairs position the guest in a perfect position for an intense experience of comfortable gaming thrills while large upright screens of 43" and even 65“ diameter convey a powerful graphic game presentation: Maximum impact gaming in luxury style.

Multi-screen cabinets like the V.I.P. Lounge™ 2.32 and the luxurious NOVOSTAR® V.I.P. 3.50 are also a frequent sight across the casino estate – especially with lmpera-Line™ HD France 1, which offers a popular array of content for French players. Also Ainsworth A600® and A640® machines have found their way in the leading French casinos, with game content such as PACMA® Wild Edition and the Mega-Choice Treasure mix.

Fabrice Gerzé, Corporate Gaming Director Barrière, explained: “NOVOMATIC products are also very well installed in our three Swiss casinos in Montreux, Friborg and Courrendlin. Players especially appreciate the new V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinets for their comfort thanks to the armchair and the good screen resolution of the V.I.P. Lounge™ Curve 1.43. NOVOMATIC has rejuvenated the market of slot machines in particular through the diversity of new games like Voodoo Fortunes™, Viking and Dragon™, From Dusk Till Dawn™, MacGyver™.... This offer perfectly complements the 'old' pack including the Book of Ra™ and the classic fruit games.”

Lawrence Levy, outgoing VP of Global Sales NOVOMATIC, said: “We are very proud of the long-established relationship between Groupe Barrière and NOVOMATIC. Our strengthened partnership helps us to continue working to improve the casino experience in France. The success of Barrière and our close collaboration has allowed us to expand and develop our product range in line with their customers' expectations and deliver compelling casino offerings throughout their impressive casino portfolio.”

LAS VEGASJune 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) and Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) announced today the creation of their new "Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative," a multi-year effort aimed at identifying worthy causes that will utilize direct contributions to flourish over the long term and provide a variety of assistance to multiple beneficiaries.

The first gift from the newly formed Initiative is a $500,000 contribution to the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering building fund at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), which is developing a 51,000-square foot, three-floor building on campus to accommodate the approximately 260 B.S., 50 M.S. and 20 Ph.D. engineering graduates each year and projected future growth. The Initiative's $500,000 gift is a direct investment in the importance of education in Nevada, the city of Las Vegas, university students and faculty and the future pipeline of skilled engineers for gaming and many other industries.

"AGEM is proud to be working with GLI on this unique giving program that will benefit many different audiences and will be true to the idea of making a 'lasting impact' through a strong ripple effect inside the gaming industry and beyond," AGEM Executive Director Marcus Prater said. "We value GLI's commitment in joining us to make a positive difference in everything we do, and we look forward to seeing the UNLV College of Engineering break ground on its new building."

"Since opening our doors 30 years ago, GLI has been dedicated to giving back to the communities where we do business around the world. We are committed to creating big ideas making a big difference in the global gaming industry and partnering with AGEM to create the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative is the latest illustration of that commitment," said GLI President/CEO James Maida. "Given the highly technical nature of today's gaming industry, a vibrant and thriving engineering community is crucial to our mutual success, and that is why it was important that this first gift went to UNLV's College of Engineering, to further solidify a pipeline of talent that will help to ensure the industry's future success."

"The College of Engineering is committed to building the infrastructure needed to educate the engineers of tomorrow, and creating research space that will enable the forward-thinking progress of corporate partners such as AGEM and GLI," said Rama Venkat, Dean of the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering. "This generous gift from the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative will help make that possible. The new Advanced Engineering Studies Building will facilitate critical research, foster innovation, and pave the way for the vision we all share for Nevada's future of a robust tech-based economy."
