Las Vegas-based AGS has purchased all assets and operations of New Jersey-based In Bet Gaming, a developer of proprietary table games and table-game side bets.
Under the terms of the agreement the firm has acquired four proprietary games from the firm, namely three card blitz, dragon poker, double down blackjack and straight to the flush.
Furthermore Ronald LaDuca, In Bet’s president and CEO, is to also join AGS’ executive team as vice president of table products sales.
John Hemberger, AGS senior vice president of table products, stated: “We have had a strong partnership with the In Bet team for a number of years, and in 2017 we bolstered our relationship by acquiring five of their dynamic table progressives that continue to drive business for us today.
“Now, in addition to investing in the remainder of their innovative game assets, we are thrilled to welcome In Bet founder, president and CEO Ron LaDuca to our sales team in a leadership role.
“We will leverage Ron’s many trusted, long-term relationships with table-game operators to continue to grow our table products business, while capitalising on In Bet’s pioneering inventions to drive revenues and player engagement in the casino pit.”
LaDuca brings over 30 years experience to the firm gained in table game roles across a number of properties, including the Showboat Atlantic City, Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut and West Virginia’s Mardi Gras Casino and Resort and The Greenbrier.
On joining AGS LaDuca, who founded In Bet Gaming ten years ago, added: “I’m thrilled that AGS has purchased In Bet’s remaining assets, and feel confident that our exciting game inventions will continue to attract and engage players across the globe in the hands of the experienced and passionate AGS development, product management and sales teams.
“I look forward to joining team AGS and helping continue their momentum in table products.”
