Company Announces New B2B Deals Designed to Provide Casinos Powerful Marketing Channel

LAS VEGAS, November 16, 2017 –  AGS, already a leader in providing land-based casino games and a key player in the mobile social casino gaming market, recently added a powerful new partner-focused component to its AGS Interactive business – a Social White Label Casino (“Social WLC”) platform. This product soft-launched in the first quarter of 2017 and is already live with six customers, quickly gaining momentum.

AGS Interactive Senior Vice President Bryan Bennett said, “We are thrilled about the adoption of our Social WLC after our first launch in March. Six new partners have selected our turn-key, white-label B2B solution as a powerful self-funded marketing channel, designed to engage players in the casino, at home, and on the go. The key benefit of our platform is that it has been battle-tested in the highly competitive social casino market, and is now ready to support casinos’ player-engagement initiatives, with powerful brand extension, communications, promotions, and monetization features.”

The early adopters of AGS’s Social WLC include BJ’s Bingo & Gaming in Fife, Wash.; Gray Wolf Peak Casino in Missoula, Mont.; and Shoalwater Bay Casino in Tokeland, Wash.

AGS’s Social WLC is a casino-branded player engagement app for iOS and Android devices and the web featuring premium and proven AGS slot content, as well as video poker, various table games, and bingo content for free-play, along with engaging extras like tournaments, in-game progression, charms, rumbles, treasure hunts, missions and challenges. In addition, the Social WLC app offers promotions, live events, land-based marketing tie-ins, and integration with the casino player-management system.

AGS’s turn-key solution includes a fully casino-branded app with content that is managed by the AGS team, live operations scheduling, segmentation, player targeting, analytics and customer support — along with a core suite of 50+ proven land-based game titles and a strong pipeline of new game content.

BJ’s Bingo & Gaming General Manager Jenynne DeNoble said, “Partnering with AGS Interactive in launching our BJ’s Bingo Social Casino App is building our brand while strengthening our relationship with our players through powerful, incremental engagement on and off the casino floor. Our players love being able to play the same AGS games they love in our casino at home and on their mobile phone or tablet, enabling us to develop an engaged community that we can reach 24/7.”

Company Executes Successful Technology Conversion in Denmark for Danske Spil's Retail, Web, Mobile and Future Sales Channels

LAS VEGAS and ATLANTA, Nov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) ("Scientific Games" or the "Company") today announced the successful launch of its most advanced, flexible, next-generation gaming system for Danske Spil (the "Lottery") in Denmark.

Scientific Games implemented the new gaming systems technology for the Danish Lottery after winning the competitively bid gaming systems contract from an incumbent supplier. The conversion from the Lottery's legacy system to the new system went live earlier this year, supporting Danske Spil's multi-channel environment which integrates sales across a network of 3,200-retailers, including 5,000 supermarket in-lane point-of-sales, as well as mobile and internet.

The systems conversion, which significantly advances the Lottery's retail, web and mobile channels, is an integral component of Danske Spil's business plan for the coming years. The new technology from Scientific Games positions the Lottery to respond quickly to changes in the marketplace and offers the Lottery flexibility to add future sales channels. Under the new contract, Scientific Games will provide 24-hour a day systems' operations from its fully redundant European centralized data centers.

Susanne Mørch Koch, Chief Executive Officer, Danske Spil, said, "We knew that we were looking for a flexible, channel-agnostic system for our Lottery. Our strategy for the lottery market is aggressive and progressive, and a new system is a core part of that strategy. We need our technology platforms to be scalable, so that we can ramp up or down and add hardware components that would not require replacing the entire system. This has been a must-have requirement for our new lottery solution." 

Following the successful go-live, the system has been enhanced to launch the newest version of VikingLotto, a popular multi-jurisdictional draw game in the Nordic and Baltic regions of Europe which went live earlier this year. Scientific Games also supplies instant games to Danske Spil.

Pat McHugh, Scientific Games' Senior Vice President, Global Lottery Systems, said, "Danske Spil is a leading innovator in the European lottery market. There is a great deal of excitement and collaboration surrounding this conversion, as we expand our support to welcome Danske Spil to the Scientific Games' Lottery Systems family. Scientific Games has aligned with Danske Spil's business goals to deliver our most advanced, open architecture system in Denmark with flexible, scalable technology that will support the Lottery's growth."

Scientific Games supplies lottery draw, instant, internet, mobile, video lottery and sports wagering technology systems worldwide and is the leading lottery systems provider in Europe.

Achievement Includes Improved Climate Change Program Score
LONDON, Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE:IGT) has been recognized by the CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) 2017 Climate Change Program for its commitment and actions in fighting climate change. The Company obtained a score of A-, placing IGT in the Leadership Band and improving its 2016 score of B. In 2017, CDP increased the requirements necessary for corporations to receive Leadership status, making the program more competitive than in previous years. 

IGT's A- score demonstrates the effectiveness of IGT's sustainability initiatives, and confirms that the Company's efforts are in line with the Paris Agreement goals set in 2015 to limit global warming. While a Management score indicates that a company is taking coordinated action on climate change issues, a Leadership score shows that a company has implemented current best practices.

"This recognition, in addition to our improved score, demonstrates IGT's commitment to continuous improvement, and is especially significant given that CDP has made its requirements more stringent," said Robert K. Vincent, IGT Executive Vice President, Administrative Services and External Relations. "At the same time that we're celebrating this achievement, we are continuing to seek more ways to reduce emissions and energy consumption across our global business."

In its application, IGT demonstrated that:

  • It increased its environmental data reporting due to an internal web-based tool, which provides a more comprehensive overview of the Company's environmental impacts;
  • It significantly reduced its emissions; and
  • It maintained its Environmental Management Systems in accordance with the ISO 14001 global standard.
IGT's approach to environmental activities is guided by the following principles:

  • Regularly assessing goals for improving environmental performance;
  • Following operating guidelines that protect the environment, employees' health and safety, and the communities in which the Company operates;
  • Complying with current regulations;
  • Ongoing improvement of pollution prevention;
  • Reducing the environmental impact of production processes in an economically effective way;
  • Providing employees with the resources they need to achieve established environmental goals; and
  • Reporting on the environmental impact of its business performance in a transparent manner.
CDP is an independent, non-profit organization that manages a global disclosure system for companies to manage their environmental impacts, and for investors to access environmental information for use in financial decisions. According to the CDP, disclosure has never been more important, and action starts with transparency. IGT voluntarily participates in the program.

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE:EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), the casino gaming industry’s single source provider of gaming products and payments solutions, announced today the debut of the revolutionary new Everi Cares™ Giving Module following the recent successful completion of a 30-day beta trial at a Las Vegas casino. Designed to make social consciousness a convenient priority on the casino floor at the time of a kiosk-based voucher redemption, Everi Cares Giving Module allows players to easily donate funds to fully vetted charities and enables casinos to give back to their communities, enhance their own corporate responsibility programs, and better engage with players looking to donate to charities.

“We are delighted to add this innovative new capability to our world-class Payments product suite and make it available to our customers for the first time,” commented Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Everi. “The Everi Cares Giving Module offers a completely new and convenient way for casinos and their players to make a powerful positive impact on their local community by creating a direct link between the casino floor and worthy local charities. This easy to implement new product offering is unique to Everi and greatly expands the capabilities and power of our Payments solutions while providing noticeable operational and marketing benefits for casino operators.”

Everi Cares Giving Module provides an opportunity for players redeeming a gaming voucher at an Everi full service kiosk to donate all or part of their ticket to select charities.

Mr. Rumbolz added, “Everi is dedicated to helping our customers support the communities in which they operate and we are excited to provide them with this tool which ultimately benefits everyone. The introduction of the Everi Cares Giving Module follows on previous charitable programs such as our TournEvent® for Charities held at the Global Gaming Expo and our Tribal Leaders Charity Slot Tournament at the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention, along with countless other events and causes supported by the Company and our team members each year. We look forward to rolling this new product out to our customers in the coming months.”

Casino operators are also positioned to benefit in their operations and community relations when implementing the Everi Cares Giving Module in their full-service kiosk footprint. Operationally, it helps reduce the amount of abandoned vouchers and lowers coin handling expenses by pushing coin redemption awards towards charitable donations and, potentially, eliminating the need for coins on the casino floor. In addition, it helps casinos in their community relations programs as it increases the profile of local charities in the eyes of players, creates an initial player-charity relationship, builds community awareness for casinos and appeals to the generosity of the millennial generation.
