VGT has signed a major deal with Cherokee Nation Entertainment (CNE), the gaming and hospitality arm of the Cherokee Nation, bringing VGT games to nine casino locations across northeast Oklahoma.
“At VGT, we are committed to the success of our tribal gaming customers, and we are thrilled to announce this contract, the latest milestone in a long-term relationship between our two organizations,” said VGT sales executive vice president James Starr. “We have a strong portfolio of field-proven games that players enjoy, and we are continually developing new products, which is further spurred by our relationship with the design teams at Aristocrat.”
Under the new contract, VGT is supplying Class II games, including new VGT Class II products such as Easy Money Jackpot® wide area progressive, Red Spin Gambler® video series, and the upcoming Client 6 high entertainment games.
The agreement continues a partnership between Cherokee Nation and VGT that dates back to 2002.
“We’ve worked with VGT for more than a decade and look forward to growing our partnership,” said Mark Fulton, chief operating officer of CNE. “As the region’s entertainment leader, we bring our guests the best entertainment experience in the market, and that means bringing them the latest, most enjoyable games in the industry.”
CNE operates Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa; eight Cherokee Casinos, including a horse racing track; three hotels; three golf courses; and other retail operations. The region’s entertainment leader employs 4,000 people.
VGT will be exhibiting jointly with parent company Aristocrat at the upcoming Indian Gaming Tradeshow and Convention, which takes place March 13-16 at the Phoenix Convention Center. Aristocrat and VGT will be in booth #1347.
