AGS has deepened its collaboration with the Vegas Golden Knights, by inking a licence agreement with the National Hockey League franchise.
The partnership will bring the development of NHL-themed slot games and table product offerings in the US and Canada, with a Vegas Golden Knights-themed slot machine the first in the following a debut at South Point Casino on the Las Vegas boulevard.
AGS, a corporate partner of the Vegas Golden Knights, sponsors the Play of the Knight, which replays and highlights a key moment from each home game.
Through its partnership with the team, AGS has been able to offer community outreach initiatives such as bringing Golden Knights team ambassadors to its adopted Griffith Elementary School, in addition to providing multiple brand engagement opportunities for its local employees.
Julia Boguslawski, AGS chief marketing officer, explained: “As a corporate partner of the Golden Knights and being headquartered in Las Vegas, it was the perfect opportunity for AGS to deliver an engaging and highly social gaming experience on an attention-grabbing slot cabinet to capitalise on the team’s enormous popularity and success.”
Players at South Point Casino will be able to take a spin on the new Vegas Golden Knights slot game, which takes the space of three standard slot games at eight feet wide and eight feet tall.
The game features multiplier wilds that maximise the win to as much as 10x the bet, and scatter pays that can deliver heightened wins when players land one or two Vegas Stars, one or two Golden Knights, or one multiplier.
“We are elated to be the first casino to unveil the Vegas Golden Knights slot game, and look forward to offering our loyal players, many of whom are Las Vegas locals and huge Golden Knights fans, with a hockey-themed slot experience based on an enormously popular team,” noted Cliff Paige, South Point slot director.
“We expect the Vegas Golden Knights game to do very well; not only does the game offer a community-style play experience as people gather to watch those giant reels spin, but it also provides a great social media photo opp.”
