Company Now Taking Orders for Award-Winning Starwall, Designed to Add Attraction, Increase Player Immersion

LAS VEGAS – February 20, 2020 – AGS today announced the launch of its Starwall immersive video merchandising display designed for integration with its Orion Portrait games to add dramatic attraction across the casino floor and provide a cinematic play experience.

AGS first unveiled the Starwall at the Global Gaming Expo (“G2E”) 2019, where the innovative video display received rave reviews from operators and won the silver ‘Gaming & Technology Award’ for ‘Best Slot Product’. Now AGS is taking orders and planning for spring Starwall installations.

AGS Executive Vice President Matt Reback said, “The Starwall was an absolute showstopper at G2E, recognized by operators for its ability to activate just about any area of a casino floor with its vibrancy, its game synchronization, and its ability to deliver a theater-like experience to players. Whether it is installed in the middle of a casino or along a wall, the Starwall promises to illuminate the casino floor.”

A first-of-its kind, the large-format free-standing Starwall combines hundreds of direct-view LED tiles to create a seamless video backdrop measuring 8 ½-feet wide by 8 ½-feet deep. Fitting sleekly and securely with three-packs and six-packs of premium Orion Portrait games, the Starwall adds attraction through high-impact motion graphics complementary to the game theme.

AGS is launching the Starwall with its new 88 Tian Lun™ family – starting with Jade Wins Deluxe® and Golden Wins Deluxe®. The game titles offer the same proven player-favorite features that have made the classic Jade Wins® and Golden Wins® casino-floor top performers, while adding a thrilling bonus wheel. Triggered randomly with any wild symbol during base-game play, the wheel bonus awards progressive jackpots, credit prizes, multipliers, respins, or an exciting coin-grab bonus that awards credits multiplied by the bet multiplier.

Massachusetts Lottery's JAMES BOND 007 Instant Game a Sellout

LAS VEGAS and ATLANTAFeb. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) ("Scientific Games" or the "Company") announced that a total of 22 U.S. and international lotteries are launching its new JAMES BOND 007 licensed games. Scientific Games has successfully extended the intrigue and excitement of the JAMES BOND 007 brand across its gaming entertainment ecosystem, including lottery, social and casino products.

The lottery games coincide with the 25th James Bond film, No Time To Die, to be released in theatres globally starting April 2, 2020 in the UK and April 10, 2020 in the US. First to launch JAMES BOND 007 games were lotteries in MassachusettsMainePennsylvaniaIsrael and Switzerland. Thus far, three lotteries will sell the JAMES BOND 007 games to players both in retail stores and online/mobile.

With over $43 million in retail sales in 19 weeks, the Massachusetts Lottery's $5 (USD) JAMES BOND 007 game sold out and Lottery officials said the game performed very well.

In the U.S., 11 state lotteries are set to participate in Scientific Games' James Bond Lottery Challenge linked game, a second-chance offering winners and their guests a five-day/four-night trip to Las Vegas in 2021 where the prizewinner will have a chance to participate in the James Bond Lottery Challenge. Winners will have a chance to win a cash prize up to $1 million or more. In addition, the prizewinners shall participate in a Bonus Event, to win a bonus cash prize up to $100,000

Ed Farley, Chief Marketing Officer for the Massachusetts Lottery, said, "The Mass Lottery is very selective with licensed games, but JAMES BOND 007 tested strongly in focus groups across a wide range of our players. We were confident that Scientific Games' elegant design of the ticket, the $1 million top instant prize, and the added thrill of the second-chance experience in Las Vegas, would collectively make this a very appealing and successful game."

Scientific Games created the lottery industry's first linked instant game in 2007 and has continued innovating once-in-a-lifetime winner experiences for lottery players.

Kyle Rogers, Executive VP of Lottery Licensing at Scientific Games, said, "We continue to lead the gaming entertainment industry with licensed brands and linked games that generate incredible excitement with players and provide once-in-a-lifetime prizes and unique experiences.

HAMDEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 3, 2020-- 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 that the Company will showcase its gaming and casino solutions at ICE London 2020 (ICE 2020), held at the ExCel London Exhibition Center February 4-6, 2020 in London, England. The event will mark the launch of Epicentral® 4.0 to the European marketplace. Additional product offerings on display at Stand N2-300 will include Epic Edge, Epic Edge TT, Epic 950, and Epic 880.

“Casino, gaming and lottery operators around the world have relied on our products to drive business, and we are constantly innovating to meet our customers’ needs. We always look forward to ICE London to share our industry leading printers and bonusing system with existing and new partners,” said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies. “As a company dedicated to continuous innovation and world-class service, we look forward to introducing our Epicentral 4.0 promotional and bonusing system to our European operators to bring them the next-generation software-based technology to drive increased game play. With all of our technologies we strive to promote operational excellence, efficiency, and drive revenue for our customers and we are excited to illustrate these abilities at ICE 2020.”

Epicentral 4.0: Taking Bonusing to a Whole New Level

TransAct’s Epicentral promotion and bonusing print system has long been the industry’s only solution capable of targeting customers with unique, custom-designed coupons while they play, all in real-time. The Company’s latest Epicentral technology, Epicentral 4.0, has an all-new web-based user interface designed to increase slot floor game play with a comprehensive dashboard on the user homepage that allows operators to actively plan, manage, and analyze promotions as well as identify top players and view specific data in order to build customer loyalty. Epicentral 4.0 is strategically designed to increase player spend, generate customer loyalty, and drive revenue offering operators a new recurring revenue opportunity.

Epic Edge: The Leader in Ticket-In/Ticket-Out

The next-generation Epic Edge is the global casino operator’s top choice in TITO printers, delivering a 50 percent improvement over current industry offerings. The Epic Edge features a 300-dpi print resolution for sharper barcodes to ultimately reduce frequency of attendant calls to drive overall floor efficiency. Tickets printed through Epic Edge feature dynamic images making it ideal for implementation alongside bonusing applications such as Epicentral. The Epic Edge also allows for firmware updates via a full speed USB 2.0 connection or directly via a micro SD card, empowering operators to update firmware faster than ever before. Additional features include a single rugged outer chassis with color coded rails, numerous flexible port options (Serial, USB and Netplex), hot swap capability to eliminate game downtime, a faster ServerPort™ connection and an adjustable ticket bucket that accommodates standard and smaller, paper-saving tickets.

Epic: The Trusted Name in Printing

Casino and gaming operators have trusted TransAct for the industry’s most reliable TITO and roll-fed printers for over 15 years.

Epic printers on display at ICE London will include:

Epic 950– The industry-standard for TITO printing, TransAct’s Epic 950 delivers proven performance in over 750,000 slot machines worldwide. Easily integrated into all game types, the Epic 950 features TicketBurst™ technology to eliminate player/ticket interference and is fully compatible with Epicentral to provide direct, personalized promotions and bonus offers in real-time.
Epic Edge TT™ – This unique, purpose-built printer takes the advanced Epic Edge outside the slot machine and on to table games, players’ club desks and cash desks. It packages a printer, internally mounted power supply and optional ServerPort in a tidy, compact design that is easy to deploy. In addition, its dual port capability allows operators to expand the bonusing environment created by their Epicentral deployments to non-gaming device applications.
Epic 880®– This compact printer for all types of gaming machines (including video lottery terminals) features a modular design configurable to nearly any space, a variable length ticket presenter, and ticket retract capability. It also offers auto paper loading and can accommodate 4-inch or 6-inch paper rolls.
