The addition of Treasure Island marks GAN’s first partner located on the iconic Las Vegas Strip

Irvine, California | July 28, 2021: GAN Limited (the “Company” or “GAN”) (NASDAQ: GAN), a leading full-service internet gaming software-as-a-service provider to the real money internet gaming, online sports betting, and simulated gaming industries, today announced that it has entered into a binding term sheet with Treasure Island Hotel & Casino (“Treasure Island”) to develop a customized simulated gaming solution designed for Treasure Island’s patrons and available across desktop and mobile applications, integrated with Treasure Island’s retail casino rewards program. The customized simulated gaming solution will be powered by GAN’s core GameSTACK™ enterprise software system that today offers more than five hundred high-quality online simulated games, many of them recognizable by patrons from retail gaming floors. Treasure Island represents GAN’s eighteenth B2B client of simulated gaming, and fifth new B2B client win year-to-date. First launched online in 2014, GAN’s simulated gaming solution now serves patrons of 101 retail casino properties coast-to-coast in the U.S.

For B2B retail casino operator clients, simulated gaming generates additional high-margin revenue from retail casino clients’ existing patron databases, enables the retail casino property to engage with their retail patrons, through an authentic internet and mobile social gaming experience, even in states where legislation allowing licensed real money iGaming is yet to arrive. The unique software provides meaningful marketing, brand building, and revenue opportunities for both operators and GAN, and has proved to increase visitation to the retail casino clients’ property. Strategically, simulated gaming also offers U.S. retail casino operators the ability to build an online database before the commencement of intra-state regulated real money Internet gaming.

Treasure Island features over 2,800 newly renovated hotel rooms and over 85,000 square feet of live casino gaming conveniently located on the iconic Las Vegas Strip. GAN was selected to develop a custom solution to bring a more robust experience to Treasure Island’s players. GAN will be launching a state-of-the-art, integrated simulated gaming platform on behalf of Treasure Island across both desktop and mobile applications, and supplying both marketing and front-line customer service for users. As part of the arrangement, GAN will also be launching the Company’s latest technology, which offers a new application framework and desktop template including loyalty linking the property’s robust retail player database. The mobile application will be compatible with both Apple and Android devices.

Marcus Yoder, Senior Vice President of Sales of GAN, commented:

“Our Simulated Gaming technology and software continues to demonstrate its industry-leading position, and our premier list of partners is growing as a result. We are very excited to partner with Treasure Island – a premier asset located on the Las Vegas Strip. Players and guests have been patronizing the iconic property for nearly 30 years, and we are thrilled to offer those players and guests new ways to engage and play with Treasure Island. We are proud to be selected as their trusted partner to improve their player experience. We look forward to developing a customized solution for Treasure Island and the continued growth of our Simulated Gaming offering.”

Pascal Tang, Director of Slot Marketing of Treasure Island Hotel & Casino, commented:

“With the world of gaming always evolving, players around the globe are constantly searching for new and exciting ways to stay engaged with their favorite games, brands, and casinos. With that in mind, it was clear to us that the digital space will become more and more important in the future. Therefore, we are excited to partner with GAN, a proven B2B operator with a customizable and tailored technology solution, in order to continue to drive player loyalty, brand awareness, and new revenue opportunities.”

LONDON, July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE: IGT) announced today that the Company is leading the transformation of the casino industry with an agreement to implement its Resort Wallet™ cashless solution and its proprietary IGTPay™ full-service funding solution at all three Agua Caliente Casinos in California: Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa Rancho Mirage, Agua Caliente Casino Palm Springs, and Agua Caliente Casino Cathedral City.

This deployment of Resort Wallet in combination with the IGTPay solution will give patrons mobile access to funds from all available types of external sources. The available sources can include credit and debit cards, bank accounts, and eWallets. This can reduce contact with cash while increasing player loyalty through enhanced convenience.

"IGT's innovative Resort Wallet cashless solution with IGTPay technology, offered to patrons through Agua Caliente's Play Agua app, will help us deliver on our commitment to providing enhanced safety through reduced contact, and offering a more convenient gaming experience," said Bill Oliver, Chief Information Officer, Agua Caliente Casinos. "We're proud to be at the forefront of global gaming technological innovation with this new service, and are excited to leverage Resort Wallet and IGTPay to power the industry's most seamless loyalty program."

"Implementing IGT's Resort Wallet and IGTPay solutions will position Agua Caliente Casinos in the vanguard of advanced casino technology and player convenience," said Ryan Reddy, IGT Senior Vice President of Global Product Management for VLT, Systems and Payments. "By uniquely giving players seamless access to all major funding sources, Agua Caliente Casinos can enhance player engagement and loyalty and attract a more diverse player demographic, which can ultimately lead to increased revenues and profitability."

Agua Caliente Casinos is scheduled to implement the full suite of IGT's Resort Wallet modules in 2021. The suite includes both flexible variations of IGT's cashless offering: cardless and carded. The player's PIN-protected Cashless Wagering Account can fund both variations either digitally through external sources via IGTPay such as bank accounts, credit cards, debit cards, or eWallets, or through cash deposits at the casino cashier, kiosks and slot machines. Funds in the Cashless Wagering Account are securely maintained for the next play session or property visit, and players can also transfer funds between slot machines onsite, as well as between Agua Caliente's other properties, or withdraw funds into a bank account. As part of the planned IGTPay full-service funding deployment, Agua Caliente Casinos will benefit from IGT's experienced Payments team, which has been operating in digital gaming markets since 2013 and will support all aspects of payment-related services.

With the cardless variation of Resort Wallet with IGTPay, players will be able to use Agua Caliente's Play Agua mobile app to access their Cashless Wagering Account. Players tap their smartphone on a slot machine to card in, and transfer funds electronically to the game.

For patrons who prefer to use physical loyalty cards, the carded cashless variation of Resort Wallet enables them to use their Agua Caliente ACE Club card to access their Cashless Wagering Account. With it, players insert their card into a slot machine and transfer the funds into the game.

IGT's end-to-end cashless solution unlocks an unparalleled player experience. Following the launch of cashless slot play, Agua Caliente Casinos plans to extend its Resort Wallet-enabled cashless capabilities to table gaming and retail services throughout the enterprise.

The IGT ADVANTAGE® system enables responsible gaming information to be displayed through the Service Window and NexGen® display on the slot machine, as well as through notifications on the Resort Wallet-enabled cashless wagering mobile app.

On June 5 th , Casino ADMIRAL Helmond near the Dutch high-tech hotspot Eindhoven officially opened its doors. The brand-new electronic casino, situated in the monumental original cinema and theatre complex of the former “Scala Bioscope”, welcomed over 70 guests at a festive midnight opening.

Gumpoldskirchen, July 14th 2021 – Casino ADMIRAL Helmond is the 7th Casino ADMIRAL venue in the Netherlands since Casino ADMIRAL Hoofddorp premiered in 2015. At full capacity, the casino is able to host guests at 190 player positions, making it the largest casino in the region. Currently though, due to the COVID-19 restrictions and strict safeguarding protocols, capacities are limited to allow for the necessary social distancing.

The interior design of Casino ADMIRAL Helmond was inspired by the rugged look of old masonry, the industrial elements of ironwork as well as the lush art deco style of the roaring 20s, the era in which the famous “Scala” cinema was originally built. The result is a sophisticated mix of textures, materials and colours, which range from the original materials of the building’s core, to premium crafted plate work, chandeliers and a striking alcohol-free gin-bar that dominates the front wall of the main gaming area. Lighting is provided by means of multi-coloured LEDs and realistic stained glass-like ornaments. Interactive light installations and video screens have been integrated to accentuate special occasions like jackpot hits and can be adapted to the time of day.

As the latest member of the Casino ADMIRAL family, Casino ADMIRAL Helmond offers the highest standards in terms of gaming equipment, hospitality and responsible gaming. The new team on site has been expertly trained by experienced staff members from other locations such as Casino ADMIRAL Heerlen, Hoofddorp and Hulst. The casino uses an advanced cashless system and offers the most popular reel games, video slots and electronic Roulette as well a 3-level linked jackpot – plus Bingo on Sundays. The hospitality offer includes free food and beverages as well as regular events and raffles.

Thomas Komnacky, NOVOMATIC VP Global Operations, said: "The opening of this new Casino ADMIRAL venue in the Netherlands is further evidence that we are committed to a sustainable business strategy, even in economically difficult times. The casino is located inan exceptional building that has been skilfully adapted by our interior design specialists – in combination with our first-class service and premium gaming offer I am convinced that it will soon become another milestone in our Dutch story of success."

Acres Manufacturing Company Launches Optimal Poker Analyzer on the Heels of New Gaming Technology Called Foundation™

Software Application to Evaluate Every Hand of Poker, Maximizing Marketing to High-Margin Players

LAS VEGAS, July 13, 2021 – Acres Manufacturing today announced the launch of Optimal Poker Analyzer, a software application that allows casinos to maximize profit on video poker. The program applies advanced analytics from Acres Manufacturing’s newly launched Foundation™ casino management system to evaluate every decision made in video poker, enabling casinos to strategically optimize marketing and operations.

“Optimal Poker Analyzer shows the true value of every video poker player and ranks all players according to skill level and profitability,” said Noah Acres of Acres Manufacturing.  “Casinos can assign an individual marketing budget to each player, funded entirely by the value of the player’s errors.  With Optimal Poker Analyzer, casinos can specifically market to high value patrons with no risk of exposure to advantage players.”

Optimal Poker Analyzer works by interfacing to Acres Manufacturing’s Foundation casino management system, which provides granular data on every hand played. Accessing the actual card values as they’re dealt, Optimal Poker Analyzer instantly recognizes the optimal play strategy of each hand and grades the player’s actual in-hand decision as a deviation from the expected return of the optimal strategy.  

 Video poker is a staple in the casino industry, specifically in the high-frequency local markets like Nevada. Due to the skill factor involved, highly skilled players – known as advantage players – are able to achieve a positive expected return that causes casinos to lose money. These losses are increased when factoring marketing offers such as free play or other rewards that are designed to incentivize play. Many casinos have responded by adapting their video poker strategy by reducing the number of games and incentives offered.

 Approved for use in Nevada and other major jurisdictions, Optimal Poker Analyzer works on any game with Foundation installed and across all variants of video poker. Foundation does not require a floor-wide install.
