LONDON, Dec. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC (NYSE: IGT) announced that its subsidiary, IGT Global Services Limited (hereinafter "IGT"), has signed a 10-year extension to its existing agreement to provide its Private Management Lottery services to the four license holders and beneficiaries of The Barbados Lottery.

The extension enables IGT to continue to provide its current private management lottery services, including its industry-leading sales, marketing, advertising, and retail agent services. As part of IGT's ongoing services under the original agreement, it will deploy new retail terminals and ticket checkers, and will introduce self-service vending machines to the market. IGT will also continue to provide peripheral equipment for social space games, which are numbers games displayed on a monitor and played in settings like bars and restaurants.

IGT has operated The Barbados Lottery since the Lottery's inception in 2005. Through its partnership with Lottery beneficiaries the Barbados Olympic Association, the Barbados Cricket Association, the Barbados Turf Club, and the National Sports Council, IGT has helped these national organizations achieve essential revenues to support their individual missions.  

In a joint statement, Lottery beneficiary officials Sandra Osborne, President of the Barbados Olympic Association; Conde Riley, President of the Barbados Cricket Association; Rosette Peirce, CEO of the Barbados Turf Club; and Neil Murrell, Acting Director of Sports, the National Sports Council said, "Our long-term partnership with IGT has proven to be the major driving force behind our ability to consistently contribute to the development of sports, youth, and cultural programs in Barbados. A significant portion of our organizations' income is derived from IGT-generated revenues, and it is these funds that enable us to deliver vital programs for all Barbadians to enjoy. This extended partnership with IGT is the proven and optimal way in which we can boost our revenues and sustain programs well into the future. We are excited to continue our partnership with IGT for years to come as we continue to focus on our missions and foster the development of our Barbadian talent."

"This amendment to extend our private management lottery services in Barbados demonstrates all four beneficiaries' confidence in IGT's expertise in responsibly growing the Lottery," said Declan Harkin, IGT Chief Operating Officer, International Lottery. "We look forward to enhancing this robust program through new and existing solutions that engage players, drive growth, and generate funds for good causes that ultimately benefit all Barbadians."

The amendment extends IGT's current agreement from 2023 through to 2033 and includes a provision for two additional five-year renewal terms.

Convenience Store Operator Continues Solution Evolution with Plans for Nearly 50% Increase in BOHA! Terminal and App Implementations

HAMDEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 4, 2019-- 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 the significant expansion of a relationship with a current user of its BOHA!™ software and hardware ecosystem. Pursuant to the expanded agreement, the domestic convenience store operator will deploy a second BOHA! Terminal along with the BOHA! Labeling SaaS-based app and TransAct Enterprise Management System (“TEMS”) at 220 of the 450 locations where these BOHA! solutions are already deployed. The expanded deployment will help TransAct’s customer manage a new food offering they plan to open inside certain existing locations.

Pursuant to this new three-year agreement, the deployment of an additional 220 BOHA! Terminal devices will occur over the next four months. The agreement also includes a commitment for the locations to use TransAct Labels specifically designed to work with the thermal printers featured in the BOHA! Terminal. TransAct believes the annual recurring average revenue per unit (“ARPU”) at these 220 locations will be approximately $1,500 per year. The Company also plans to work with the operator on the evaluation of additional BOHA! apps for potential deployment at a later time.

TransAct first provided its restaurant solutions offerings for this customer last year when the customer deployed TransAct’s prior-generation restaurant solution terminals and non-TransAct software at all of its locations. Following the introduction of the BOHA! ecosystem in March 2019, the customer transitioned its existing terminals at 450 stores to the new BOHA! Terminal alongside the BOHA! Labeling SaaS-based app and TEMS which led to recurring software revenues for TransAct. The additional deployments of BOHA! solutions will further grow the recurring revenue generated from this customer in addition to the benefit of the sale of 220 new BOHA! Terminal units.

Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies, said, “This expansion of our relationship with an existing BOHA! ecosystem customer is a testament to the measurable improvement our technology provides to foodservice operators. Having worked closely for several years to address this customer’s back-of-house needs, we have gained a tremendous level of insight as to how our newest solutions can help them manage their operations more efficiently and effectively and we have evolved our solution deployments at their locations to meet their changing requirements. We are pleased with the confidence this customer has in the BOHA! solution suite as they embark on an initiative to provide a new, unique food offering inside a large percentage of their stores. We look forward to our ongoing collaboration with this customer as we continue to help them improve performance across their back-of-house operations.”

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. BOHA! Terminal includes TEMS (TransAct Enterprise Management System) to ensure only approved apps and functions are available on the device.

Amidst two awards won on the occasion of the event and a broad portfolio of Winning Technology presented within a new stand design, the key highlight for NOVOMATIC at the recent Balkan Entertainment & Gaming Expo (BEGE Expo) 2019 was the great customer interest and excellent footfall at this major gaming event for the region. The local subsidiaries made sure to welcome all visitors and guests in true Austrian style.

At the 12th edition of BEGE Expo, the NOVOMATIC stand welcomed show visitors with a great variety of market-specific offers presented in the most popular cabinets like the PANTHERA™ series, the V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinets and the V.I.P. Eagle™ I 3.32 – with Winning Technology to suit player preferences as well as operators' requirements and economic considerations.

Regional best-sellers have traditionally been multi-game mixes comprising the most popular NOVOMATIC video slot classics – and a variety of these were on display at BEGE: The Legend Gaminator® 1T multi-game edition with 43 legendary titles, Superia Games Premium Mix 2 with 43 games, NOVO LINE™ lnteractive Edition X1 with 30 titles, NOVO LINE™ lnteractive Concurve Edition 4 comprising five games for single screen curve cabinets and lmpera Line™ HD Edition 7 boasting 53 titles. This last powerful package of performers was also the winner of the show organizer's "BEGE EXPO Award" in the "Game Content" category, which the local team was honoured to receive next to an honorary award for the long-term support of the show. Additionally, the lmpera Line™ HD Edition 7 game mix demonstrated the integration of slot and ETG offerings with a live link to a LOTUS ROULETTE™ Pro ETG Roulette installation with six player stations.

Game-synchronized XL LED effects, two 32" HD screens as well as a tilted slant top base featuring a TouchDeck™ player interface are the key features of the V.I.P. Eagle™ I 3.32, which combines all the advantages of a slant top with the high visibility of a stylish upright cabinet. Operators clearly recognized the outstanding potential of this machine as an attractive spotlight on the casino floor. The Lucky Lady character certainly needs no introduction in the international gaming industry – and at BEGE, visitors were delighted to encounter her casting Wild Spells in a game concept that premiered in the region: Lucky Lady's Wild Spell™.

Milos Pejic, NOVOMATIC Regional Manager SEE Gaming Operations, said: “With this year's exhibition stand concept, we have deviated from traditional show concepts and instead brought a touch of Vienna to Sofia. We are very grateful for the excellent customer feedback we received at the show, and the great interest in our portfolio of products and solutions for the Balkan markets. Especially the new V.I.P. Eagle™ I 3.32 cabinet hits a note with the operators of the region and also the Lucky Lady's Wild Spell™ game title ranges high among the visitors' favourites.”
On November 20, key executives and leading casino operators from the Mexican casino industry gathered at the W Hotel in México City for the annual V.I.P. Experience, hosted by the local NOVOMATIC subsidiary NOVOMATIC México. The event has already become a traditional meeting place for customers to join the NOVOMATIC team and get hands-on with the latest novelties presented at G2E in Las Vegas, just a month prior.

The fourth V.I.P. Experience took place on November 20 in Mexico City, in one of the city’s most exclusive hotels, W Hotel. Some 100 guests and leading operators of the Mexican industry were welcomed in a beautifully decorated Book of Ra™-style Egyptian setting to enjoy food and drinks, great company as well as an exclusive presentation of the latest NOVOMATIC product news they may have missed in Las Vegas. Jens Einhaus, NOVOMATIC VP of International Sales, Europe & The Americas and Max Bauer, NOVOMATIC regional VP of Latin America and the Caribbean joined the local Mexican team headed by Thomas Borgstedt, Managing Director and Judith Barrientos, Commercial & Marketing Manager NOVOMATIC México to discuss products and business strategies with the guests.

One of the highlights on display was the THUNDER CASH™ Link featuring the title Empress of the Pyramids™ in the elegant PANTHERA™ Curve 1.43 cabinet. This Linked Progressive guarantees hours of entertainment with thrilling feature gameplay and exciting jackpot thrills. Another title that perfectly blended in with the evening’s Egyptian theme, was Princess of the Nile™, part of NOVOMATIC Americas’ PAYDAY™ Standalone Progressives series, presented in the PANTHERA™ 2.27 cabinet. Also other popular Egyptian titles such as Pyramid Fortunes™ and Goddess Rising™ were on display – as was a selection of titles for the thriving Mexican Bingo segment, including Bruno Bingo™ or the Lucky Lady™ Bingo, presented in the V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinet.

The friendly gathering in a relaxed atmosphere continued into the night, as a DJ filled the room with music and guests enjoyed conversation and cocktails. Several raffles took place with prizes like headphones, Bluetooth speakers, a go pro camera and smart home devices.

Judith Barrientos said: “It is our customers, who really make this event a tradition and a success. We would like to thank them for joining us for this great evening, and also for their trust and support. We saw great interest in the products we brought here, especially in the THUNDER CASH™ Link and the PAYDAY™ Progressives. This kind of product continues to be a big topic in the US, and this is very much reflected in the Mexican market. With our portfolio, we can offer our customers an excellent choice of titles that will certainly inspire their guests – and more is to come in 2020, when NOVOMATIC will celebrate its 40th anniversary…”

On Sunday, November 17, the NOVOMATIC Group celebrated the opening of its second casino operation in North Macedonia. The casino complies with the highest Responsible Gaming standards, using the latest biometric technology from NOVOMATIC Biometric Systems (NBS).

The casino is located in the building complex that houses the Marriott Hotel Skopje, which opened in 2016 directly on the main square of the North Macedonian capital. In addition to the 164-room hotel, the premises are now home to a state-of-the-art casino with an exclusive ambience and state-of-the-art gaming equipment across four levels. In the immediate vicinity are the lively pedestrian area as well as numerous attractions of the city centre.

Since the opening of NOVOMATIC Group's largest casino, the Casino Hotel FlaminGo Gevgelija in 2014 and its expansion in 2016, NOVOMATIC has firmly established its position as a casino operator in the Balkans. With the new Casino FlaminGo Skopje, the Group has now further expanded and strengthened its casino expertise in the region.

Modern Responsible Gaming
After about eight months of restructuring work – from April to November 2019 – and investments in the millions, the casino has now opened its doors: featuring some 2,600 sqm with 290 state-ofthe- art gaming machines, a generous live gaming area with 12 tables (6 Roulette tables, 6 card tables), a large bar with an extensive range of snacks and the "Cigars' Bar", where guests can take a break in a relaxed atmosphere. More than 130 employees guarantee a smooth operation and premium service.

Fulfilling the highest Responsible Gaming standards, Casino FlaminGO Skopje is the first casino in North Macedonia to be equipped with NOVOMATIC Biometric Systems (NBS): The gaming regulation requires casino visitors to register upon their initial visit to a gaming venue. Revisiting guests can pass the casino access control by means of database verification by fingerprint. This ensures fully automated player protection processes as well as a guaranteed protection of minors through e.g. the denial of access for underage guests or for players who are blocked due to a display of problematic gaming behaviour.

Opening concert
More than 800 guests – including the Mayor of the city of Skopje Petre Shilegov and the Austrian ambassador to North Macedonia Dr Georg Woutsas – came to the big casino opening and were treated to a varied entertainment program as well as culinary delights. Before the official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, Dr Bernd Oswald, NOVOMATIC Chairman of the Supervisory Board, welcomed the guests and extended the best wishes on behalf of NOVOMATIC founder Professor Johann F. Graf.

To celebrate its opening, the Casino FlaminGo Skopje invited the whole city for a free concert of the legendary band "Bijelo Dugme" and local superstar Goran Bregovi? on the main square, right in front of the casino entrance. Accompanied by the raging applause of about 25,000 enthusiastic fans, the band played one hit after another.

Regional Manager Milos Pejic, who developed the project together with Aleksandar Simovi?, said: “With this casino, we have definitely set a new standard in the region.”

One Hundred Regulators Joined Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) as it Staged its 12th Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable in Costa Rica

LAKEWOOD, N.J. (November 20, 2019) – A record number of regulators and legislators from across Latin America, the Caribbean, and Portugal joined Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) as the company celebrated its 12th Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable in San José, Costa Rica.

This year’s Roundtable was attended by 100 government representatives. Attendees came from 19 countries, 32 government entities, and two government associations, including CIBELAE (Iberoamerican Association of State Lotteries) and ALEA (Association of State Lotteries of Argentina).

The countries represented at the Roundtable were Argentina, Aruba, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curaçao, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Jamaica, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, and Uruguay.

“Our great appreciation and gratitude go to the Junta de Protección Social (JPS Costa Rica Lottery) and its President, Mrs. Esmeralda Britton González, for their outstanding efforts during the organization of the conference. Without their support, there would be no Roundtable. We are thankful to the JPS Lottery and the Ministry of Public Safety of Costa Rica for bringing a delegation of local government representatives that was the largest to date. One of the Roundtable’s objectives is to have a positive impact on the host country’s industry, and we hope the conference was a success in this regard,” said Karen Sierra-Hughes, Director of Latin America and Caribbean Government Relations and Business Development for GLI. “We are humbled by the great success of this Roundtable, and we are grateful to the 100 government representatives that decided to join us this year. The wealth of knowledge shared was unparalleled, and we are certain it will once again result in important regulatory advances for the jurisdictions in attendance We are already looking forward to next year’s conference.”

The President of Junta de Protección Social, Mrs. Esmeralda Britton González, MBA, said, “I want to deeply thank GLI for considering Costa Rica as the venue for the region’s 12th Regulators Roundtable, held in our country. This is a very important event where regulators from all the countries of the region meet and information and experiences are shared that allow us to know the progress that each country has in terms of lotteries and gaming. The quality of the speakers, the strict order of the presentations, and the variety in the modality of each session allowed the participants to take full advantage of each panel. I recognize and congratulate GLI for the success of this event. I hope GLI will continue to conduct these educational events each year, which allow the regulated industry to continue advancing in the gaming world, learn from other experiences, and of course, advance in certification processes that allow us to improve the quality of the products and services we offer.”

The Executive Director of the Gaming Inspection and Regulation Service of Portugal, Mr. Luís Felipe Coelho said, “The Latin America and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable that took place in San José, Costa Rica will surely be marked in the memory of all its attendees as a high quality event for the topics discussed and the highest-level presentations that we had the opportunity to witness. Certainly, the exchange of ideas and experiences has enriched regulators for future actions in their respective jurisdictions.”

Mr. Manuel Antonio San Román Benavente, General Director of Casino Games and Slot Machines of Peru said, “I have had the opportunity to participate in the Regulators Roundtable promoted by GLI, which had an excellent setting in the city of San José, Costa Rica; a welcoming country with kind people and great economic development. My experience participating at all the Roundtables promoted by GLI to date with the collaboration of the host regulators that have welcomed us every year, has allowed us to bring new advances and improvements in the regulations of each one of the different countries participating. It should be noted that the continuous participation of regulators in the different Roundtables, when exchanging experiences allows us to keep up-to-date with the technological developments that are emerging year by year, as well as new techniques and solutions to the common problems that we are facing. Congratulations to the entire GLI team, as well as to Mrs. Esmeralda Britton, President of the Junta de Protección Social of Costa Rica, in her capacity as host regulator for this impeccable organization, which leaves in our memories pleasant and useful lessons.”

This year, the Roundtable hosted gaming and lottery regulators, government lotteries, tax and AML supervision authorities, and legislators. Speakers addressed critical topics, such as policy objectives and legislative updates, to more specific topics ranging from legal and technical compliance, social responsibility, and keeping crime out of the industry.

The event is produced through GLI’s highly respected educational division, GLI University®. Next, GLI will stage its North American Regulators Roundtable March 4-5 at the Tropicana Casino & Hotel in Las Vegas. For more information, visit gaminglabs.com/GLIRT20.

London | November 19, 2019: GAN plc ("GAN" or the "Company"), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gambling software, services and online gaming content in the United States, today updated the market following the publication on November 18, 2019, by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board ("PGCB") of Internet gaming and Internet sports betting financial information for the calendar month of October 2019 in Pennsylvania.

Highlights from the PGCB include:

· Internet Gaming Win was $4.9 million in October, reflecting an increase of 19.5% from the prior sequential month.(1) This compares to:

- $4.1 million for the month of September;

- $3.4 million for the month of August; and

- $0.8 million for the month of July.

· Total Internet Sports Wagering Handle(2) was approximately $198.7 million for the month of October, compared to:

- $158.2 million for the month of September;

- $83.2 million for the month of August; and

- $39.0 million for the month of July.

· Internet Sports Wagering Gross Revenues(3) (after payouts) for the month of September were $14.5 million, compared to:

- $13.7 million(4) for the month of September;

- $6.3 million for the month of August; and

- $2.9 million for the month of July.



(1) Internet Gaming Win was misstated in the Company's previous press releases concerning Pennsylvania market data and has been adjusted accordingly in this announcement.

(2) Gross amount of money accepted in wagers

(3) Internet Sports Wagering Gross Revenues may vary from month to month due to the payouts for future events occurring months after the original wager was made and unredeemed winning wagers from prior months will become deductible upon redemption in future months

(4) This number was understated as $13.4 million in GAN's press release dated October 18, 2019, as it excluded gross revenues of $268,844 from Mount Airy casino.

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.

“Argentina is an important market for Aristocrat, and our participation in SAGSE, along with the depth and breadth of our product line, shows our commitment to our customers,” said Chris Rowe, Managing Director of Latin America. “We never stop thinking about our customers, and we never stop creating innovative games, cabinets, and technologies to help them offer an entertaining experience to players of all types.”

Leading the way for Aristocrat at SAGSE is the exciting Gana con Susana™ linked progressive games. The link is a player favorite and recently came to Casino Buenos Aires, where Argentine television megastar, pop culture icon, and star of the game Susana Giménez welcomed the link to the casino.

Gana con Susana is driven by Aristocrat’s powerful ONE LINK™ Mystery Progressive Jackpot technology, a customizable solution that offers a wide area or single site progressive jackpot. The solution is fully integrated into Aristocrat’s media system to create visual appeal and leverages the bonusing pool capability across the enterprise.

Aristocrat will also show new games on player-favorite linked titles including Lightning Link™, Dragon Link™, Mighty Cash™ Link, and Gold Stacks 88™ Link. The game themes and linked titles appear on Aristocrat’s innovative cabinets, including the Helix™, Helix XT™, Helix+™, ARC™ Single, and the stunning new MarsX™ cabinet, which makes its Latin American premiere at SAGSE.

Sleek, modern, and inventive, the MarsX cabinet sparks a revolution in game floor layout. Operators will appreciate the design of the MarsX machine, which fits easily into any standard cabinet space. When placed back-to-back, its unique shape opens sight lines across the casino.  Players enjoy the MarsX’s dual 27” 4k displays, Gen 9™ performance, premium virtual button deck, wireless charging technology, and 4:1 speaker system.

Aristocrat’s Sales Director for South America Sebastian Srulevich said, “This is a thrilling mix of products, and we are proud to present this mix of games, cabinets, and system technologies to our Argentine customers. We understand that players are always looking for what’s next, and we are excited to present these products that we believe show Aristocrat is all about what’s next.”

LAS VEGAS– November 11, 2019 – AGS (NYSE: AGS) or (the “Company”) today announced that it was awarded a 2019 Gold Medallion Award through the U.S. Department of Labor’s HIRE Vets program for commitment and leadership in recruiting, employing, and retaining U.S. military veterans.

AGS was the only gaming supplier recognized, one of only two gaming companies to earn this recognition (the other was Cosmopolitan Las Vegas) nationally, and one of only six companies in Nevada to earn a medallion through the HIRE Vets program, made possible through the Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Act of 2017, the only federal-level program that recognizes job creators who are passionate and actively focused on recruiting, hiring, and retaining America’s veterans.

AGS President and Chief Executive Officer David Lopez, a U.S. Army veteran, said, “At AGS we recognize that because of their backgrounds and experience, veterans bring leadership, technical skills, and a spirit of collaboration to our company and are valuable contributors to our success. We have made a firm commitment to not only hire more veterans, but to provide support and resources to our veteran employees and their families so they can thrive at work and in their communities. We’re honored to receive the Gold Medallion through HIRE Vets and are passionate about further bolstering our veteran’s initiatives.”
