LAS VEGAS, January 29, 2020 – Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) ("Scientific Games" or the “Company") today announced that it was chosen by Hard Rock International for its newest casino property, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain, to supply its full complement of casino management system products, as well as a full library of slot games and table games and utility products.

Located in Sacramento, California, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain opened with more than 1,800 slot machines and table game positions, all of which will be managed and monitored by a suite of Scientific Games Systems products, including SDSCMPBusiness Intelligence (BI)Elite Bonusing Suite (EBS)DM TournamentsiVIEW 4, and TableView.

“The Hard Rock has enjoyed a longstanding partnership with Scientific Games and that trust is why we easily made the decision to choose their system for our newest property in Sacramento,” said Jon Lucas, Chief Operating Officer of Hard Rock International.  “Their suite of innovative casino management solutions, as well as their full portfolio of slots, tables and utility products, will enable the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain to offer our customers the unique, best-in-class experience that we strive for with all of our casino properties.”

For over 40 years, SDS has set the standard as the gaming industry's most accurate, reliable, and innovative slot accounting system. SDS is an integrated slot accounting system that continually monitors slot machines, other gaming devices, and customer gaming activity throughout the casino property. CMP is the Company’s player-tracking and customer-relationship system that helps operators manage and evaluate the database of players throughout the casino.

In addition to CMP, the Business Intelligence (BI) advanced application analyzes extensive data gathered throughout the business enterprise and delivers solutions to grow the business through an improved understanding of table and slot performance, in addition to player behavior and values.

The award-winning iVIEW 4 - Scientific Games’ next-generation player interface - enables the casino to show dynamic marketing content, animations and videos on the gaming machine, supports cardless/cashless play, and offers instant response through a sophisticated multi-touch display. iVIEW 4 supports HTML5 graphics and uses web widgets to enable casino marketing teams to easily update content dynamically throughout the casino on Hard Rock Sacramento’s gaming devices with current promotions, advertisements, videos and more – significantly enhancing the player experience.

HAMDEN, Conn.--()--TransAct® Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or “the Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, today announced a new agreement with a 72 location regional office of a national convenience store chain. The complete system deployment will include the BOHA!™ Labeling SaaS-based app and TransAct Enterprise Management System (“TEMS”) alongside the BOHA! Terminal as well as TransAct specifically designed labels. The BOHA! solution will help TransAct’s customers manage its new fresh food offering. As the fresh food program is expanded to new regions, TransAct will market the BOHA! solution to an additional 2,000 stores.

The BOHA! system will be deployed over the next month to all 72 locations. TransAct estimates the total annual recurring review per unit (“ARPU”) per site will be $1,400 per year.

The Company is also working with the regional operator on the evaluation of additional BOHA! apps for potential deployment at a later time.

“Convenience stores are seizing the opportunity to provide their customers with a selection of fresh food as consumer preferences for meals and snacks on-the-go change to favor healthier, less processed options. Our solutions are built to ensure convenience store operators have a simple and reliable way to ensure FDA labeling compliance, food safety and improve productivity for employees managing fresh food offerings,” said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies. “Our technology, which is implemented across a wide variety of foodservice models from quick-service restaurants to convenience stores and food service operators has proven to be an integral part of our customers’ business, helping to simplify labor and lower costs. We believe BOHA! Labeling and TEMS will be immensely helpful to these convenience store locations as they work to streamline operations surrounding their new fresh food offering.”

BOHA! is the first single-vendor solution to combine applications for Inventory Management, Temperature Monitoring of Food and Equipment, Timers, Food Safety Labeling, Food Recalls, Checklists & Procedures, Equipment Service Management and Delivery Management in one fully-integrated platform. Each BOHA! solution combines cloud-based SaaS applications with hardware and accessories to deliver superior results for critical back-of-house operations. BOHA! offers a one-stop solution for restaurants and food service companies to address their current back-of-house operating requirements while providing a future-ready platform capable of addressing back-of-house operations as they continue to evolve.

As NOVOMATIC embarks on its 40th anniversary year, the stand at ICE Totally Gaming will be a full display of modern gaming solutions, content and hardware for the various segments and markets of the international gaming industry.

For NOVOMATIC, 2020 is the year to celebrate 40 years of success, to say thank you to all who have been part of the journey so far and to also look to the future. The exhibition stand at ICE Totally Gaming in London will reflect the jubilee and invite show visitors to discover gaming technology innovation from the past, present and future. The attentive explorer will encounter a special vintage corner where NOVOMATIC looks back on classic product highlights and company milestones from the past 40 years. NOVOMATIC CEO Harald Neumann: “ICE 2020 will be a very special trade show for NOVOMATIC, especially since we will be celebrating our 40th anniversary this year. Accordingly, we will not only present our exceptional product portfolio but also review these 40 successful years with our customers and partners.”

Visitors to the NOVOMATIC stand are welcomed with the traditional Austrian hospitality as they embark on their tour across the exhibition stand to investigate what is new and exciting for their specific requirements. The Winning Technology portfolio on display for 2020 and beyond will serve every operator’s demands – from landbased casino and AWP products & systems, as well as biometric technologies for modern access solutions, to online gaming, sports betting and cash handling solutions.

Jens Einhaus, VP of International Sales, Europe & the Americas says: “I believe that with the very well balanced portfolio of new developments and “retro” games, we will see substantial growth in all areas of our landbased business and I can’t wait to present all the new products to our customers at ICE. Visitors should certainly make sure to use the opportunity to enjoy our special 40th anniversary offers at ICE.”

In the landbased casino markets, Linked Progressives are a prevailing trend that European operators, too, have come to adopt. Based on their growing popularity, Links mark heavily in the casino segment of the NOVOMATIC stand, with dedicated single games, suites of games as well as multi-game compendiums featuring a great variety of linked progressive jackpot highlights. Among these, Asian themes will make for a few surprises with two brand new Asian Links premiering in London as well as the eye-catching Samurai Beauty™ that is making her first appearance in Europe with the V.I.P.

- $9.7 million for the month of November;

- $4.9 million for the month of October; and

- $4.1 million for the month of September.

· Total Internet Sports Wagering Handle(1) was approximately $297.4 million for the month of December, compared to:

- $266.7 million for the month of November;

- $198.7 million for the month of October; and

- $158.2 million for the month of September.

· Internet Sports Wagering Gross Revenues(2) (after payouts) for the month of December were $14.5 million, compared to:

This information will be updated and published each month, following publication by the PGCB, in order to enable the investor community to readily monitor growth of Internet gambling in Pennsylvania, which remains a key market for GAN.

A state lottery may finally become legal in Alabama this year, with tribal casino expansion plans offering to support a lottery, according to a Fantini Research report.

The National Legislative Preview, published by industry journal Fantini Research, reports that a $1bn offer from The Poarch Creek would see expansion for its casinos to include Class III gaming, which supports a state lottery.

The plan would promise $350m in projected tax revenue. The state is one of just five currently without a lottery, with legislation failing in the past two years.

The findings of the report also suggest a state-wide referendum is expected to allow casinos, racetracks and sports betting in Georgia, while Northern Virginia could get an additional $155m in tax revenue if legislation passes for a casino.

Sports betting is set to become available in Michigan within the next 12 months, after the state enacted legislation that legalizes sports wagering for both commercial and tribal casinos, which could serve as a model for others to follow.

Federal legislation has also been introduced to pave the way for tribes to offer online sports betting without violating the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. 

California could be set for change, with hearings set to begin later this month into a state-wide sports betting referendum.

A Horse Racing Integrity Act is being considered, which would create an independent anti-doping authority to oversee a nationwide drug control program for horse racing, with 53% participating in a Reuters survey supporting the move.

Fantini’s review, compiled by its public policy editor Laura Briggs, examines the key issues facing the gaming industry in 2020, with sports betting currently legal in 20 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, with another 15 states to launch operations.

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. Everi’s central system currently monitors and administers more than 17,000 Video Lottery Terminals (“VLTs”) installed at nine facilities across New York State. 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.
