LAS VEGAS AND MAYETTA, KAN. (April 10, 2024) – Everi Holdings Inc. (“Everi” or the “Company”), a premier provider of land-based and digital casino gaming content and products, financial technology, player loyalty solutions, and bingo, announced today it has entered into an agreement with Prairie Band Casino & Resort, (“Prairie Band”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, to launch Vi  – the Company’s revolutionary, all-in-one, on-property mobile gaming solution – across Prairie Band’s property, located just north of Topeka, Kansas.

The Vi platform is delivered through Everi’s award-winning BeOn™ mobile services and combines Everi Digital games, CashClub Wallet®, the Everi Compliance Anti-Money Laundering (AML) solution, and their award-winning Trilogy™ Loyalty platform. With proven content from the gaming floor and the digital gaming market, Vi extends the gaming entertainment experience beyond the casino floor, but within the allowable gaming footprint.

Vi will allow Prairie Band patrons to play in their hotel rooms, in restaurants and bars, by the pool, and across the resort. Prairie Band patrons will be able to play popular Everi Class II games – such as the hit titles Cash Money, Triple Jackpot Gems, and innovative non-reel games, such as Lightning Zap – on their mobile devices.

“We are delighted to work with Prairie Band for this industry-unique offering. The seamless Vimobile solution will help increase player interaction at Prairie Band by providing our proven Class II gaming content and delivering it straight to a player’s existing mobile device,” said Tim Richards, Everi’s Executive Vice President, Strategy and Digital Gaming. “Viaddresses all guest touchpoints within the resort and is an easy-entry solution that provides a unique gaming entertainment experience for players, along with new revenue opportunities for Prairie Band.”

“We are excited to expand our gaming offering beyond the traditional gaming floor to the entire resort,” said Chris Garrow, Director of Gaming. “We are always looking for ways to enhance our guests gaming experience.”

“This is another innovative avenue for our guests to ‘Play Your Way,’” said William Marsh, Prairie Band Casino & Resort General Manager.

Players can easily register for Vi utilizing Everi’s mobile enrollment capabilities, at a kiosk, or in person at a service desk, and begin playing in any approved areas on property with the use of geolocation technology. Featuring Everi’s Player Account Management system, Vi seamlessly integrates into existing casino systems while offering additional patron engagement opportunities via loyalty programs and, where available, self-service kiosks for funding, ratings, rewards, and promotions. The flexible Vi solution is also integrated with Everi’s compliance AML systems, creating a single trusted source for reporting.

The Vi platform is the only single-supplier, all-in-one class II on-property mobile games solution available in the market. Everi’s entire portfolio of Digital content is housed and delivered via the Company’s proprietary Spark Remote Game Server (“Spark RGS”). Both the Spark RGS and the Vi platform are GLI certified for Class II and Class III gaming.
