Following the launch of its portrait upright cabinet Spectra UR43 in 2022, AGS will introduce its second cabinet in the Spectra line and a new premium configuration.

  • Spectra UR49C features a 49-inch curved monitor and enlarged button deck, along with an expanded library of games.
  • Spectra UR43 Premium includes a billboard-style digital display and thematic merchandising available in various inline and pod configurations.

“This year’s G2E represents a significant step toward our slot-strategy transformation. Our products and strategy are fully aligned toward growing our market position to become a leading slot supplier to the gaming industry,” said Mark DeDeaux, senior vice president and general manager, slots. “We have elevated our people, processes, and products and we are in full launch mode.”

AGS will showcase its most diverse pipeline of new games to date, featuring extensions of several of its most successful game themes, iterations of game mechanics, and innovation:

  • Triple Coin Treasures Gold, a four-pot twist on the original Triple Coin Treasures game family, which was recognized as a “Best Slot Product” in the 2024 GGB Gaming & Technology Awards.
  • The return of Cornsquealius the vivacious pig in Rakin’ Bacon Odyssey and Rakin’ Bacon Sahara.
  • Fu Nan Fu Nu Prosperity and Fu Nan Fu Nu Longevity, now with premium merchandising.

Innovating on the progressive system Bonus Spin Xtreme, AGS’s tables division will release new features to further enhance the experience for players.

  • Bonus Spin Xtreme Power Up! includes a wheel triggered by individual hands for non-community table games.
  • The high-hand jackpot feature offers players a progressive jackpot for making top individual hands.

“Our Bonus Spin Xtreme showcase at G2E is another solid example of how we don’t stop innovating on a great idea and the new features we are showing are great examples of how we continue to push the envelope on what’s possible with our progressive platforms,” said John Hemberger, senior vice president and general manager, table products. “In line with product enhancements and refinements, we continue to fine-tune our Pax S card shuffler and grow our support network across the country.”

In addition, AGS’s single-deck shuffler, Pax S is back with its feature-rich software, including added game configurations and enhanced efficiency and serviceability.

AGSi, AGS’s interactive division, achieved new levels in 2023 with the entrance into British Columbia Lottery Corporation, Italy, Romania, and West Virginia jurisdictions and most recently ranking #1 for Top Indexing New Online Slots per the September ‘23 Eilers-Fantini Online Game Performance Report.

AGSi debuted its first persistence titles from the Ultimate Choice Jackpots game family this year and successfully entered the online stepper product category with the release of Mega Diamond, accompanied by a modernized UI layout. Underscored by a marquee year, AGSi plans to release its first online table game among the 50 games it plans to introduce to the market in 2024 and become the first supplier to offer table progressives online.
