Las Vegas headquartered developer, manufacturer and supplier of casino games, systems and technology AGS has announced a content partnership with gaming software supplier Bede Gaming.
Under the terms of the agreement, AGS is to supply its real-money game content to Bede’s client roster, including 21.co.uk, Bet UK, Bingo Stars, Grosvenor Casinos, MECCA, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, Slot Boss, and Sun International.
Ross Haselhurst, Bede Gaming commercial director, praised the new link-up: “We are very much looking forward to offering AGS’ library of entertaining and feature-rich game content, to our online operator partners for the ultimate enjoyment of the online player.
“We now offer operators one of the most extensive and diverse portfolios of content available, with over 3,000 game titles across our platforms.
“We are especially excited about the internally developed AGS game content, known for offering a high-volatility extended play experience that can be highly rewarding.”
AGS’ AxSys games marketplace game aggregation platform is to integrate with Bede’s gambling platform, to offer operator partners of the latter “an even larger and more robust library of high-performing game content, including soon-to-launch AGS game content already proven in land-based casinos”.
“We are thrilled to partner with such a well-respected firm as Bede Gaming, known for offering operators a comprehensive platform, true omni-channel solution, and large library of the most exciting game content,” added Bryan Bennett, AGS interactive senior vice president.
“Their customer portfolio includes many of the world’s largest online operators, and now those operators will have access to the content we offer from our third-party suppliers, and soon, AGS-developed game content,to substantially increase Bede’s game library and significantly broaden our player reach. It’s a win-win, and we couldn’t be more pleased.”
AGS recently reached a definitive agreement to acquire regional slot route operator Integrity Gaming Corp, for a total value of $49m.
Including repaying $36m of outstanding debt, the cash transaction is expected to be closed in the first half of the year, and is subject to approval by Integrity shareholders.
