Las Vegas headquartered AGS has rolled-out a partnership with online gaming operator Kindred Group to provide online real-money games for the latter’s flagship Unibet brand in New Jersey.
Under the terms of the deal AGS has subsequently launched on Kindred Group’s nj.unibet.com igaming entity with six of its “highest-performing” games, Fu Nan Fu Nu, Golden Wins, Jade Wins, Longhorn Jackpots, Olympus Strikes, and Rakin’ Bacon!.
Manuel Stan, Kindred Group US senior vice president, said of the enhancement: “It has been a true pleasure working with AGS on the launch of their games. AGS game titles are certainly well-known to retail players in the US and are proving to be just as popular with online slot enthusiasts who seek high-volatility thrills and popular features like pick’em bonuses, progressive jackpots, and free games. We look forward to growing our partnership with AGS as we expand our reach in the US.”
AGS offers its game content to six other online operators in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including Rush Street Interactive, Caesars Entertainment, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts World, and Parx Casino.
Matt Reback, AGS executive vice president, added: “It’s exciting for AGS to partner with the Kindred Group and provide our high-volatility, entertaining, and proven slot content for their Unibet New Jersey online casino.
“Kindred’s Unibet brand enables us to introduce our popular AGS games to thousands of new fans and to partner with one of the world’s largest online gaming operators.”
Countrywide casino closures continue to have far reaching consequences across the US, with AGS documenting its first quarter impacts earlier in the month.
Despite the widespread North American shutdown the company asserts that, in the face of the uncertainty and challenges that lie ahead, it’s approaching the rest of the year “from a position of strength”.
Revenue for the firm dropped 26 per cent to $54.3m (2019: $69.6m), primarily due to decreased unit sales and gaming operations revenue in its EGM segment as a result of business disruptions and casino closures.
