The library of table game offerings from AGS (the company) continues to grow after it announced the purchase of five dynamic, new games from New-Jersey based company In Bet Gaming (In Bet). This strategic acquisition elevates the company's table product install base to more than 2,500 and marks the largest table game investment in AGS history. The company showed the Super 4 Blackjack progressive game, Jackpot Blackjack game and the Royal 9 Baccarat progressive game at G2E.
"We've always been passionate about strategically investing in games and technology building momentum in the market," said John Hemberger, senior vice president of table products for AGS. "This acquisition combines In Bet's proven, innovative table game side bets with our customer-focused distribution network and expertise in table game progressive technology to deliver players and operators unmatched gaming experiences."
"AGS showed it can take trending games and spread them to new markets in new ways after they acquired our popular games In Between and Criss Cross Poker in 2014," said Ron LaDuca, CEO of In Bet Gaming. "Their team has the relentless passion, scale, talent, and technology to take these already successful games and amplify their commercial delivery."
As part of the agreement, AGS has purchased a game library with approximately 500 installs worldwide, including Super 4, Blackjack Match Progressive, Jackpot Blackjack, Royal 9 and Jackpot Baccarat. Each game features a simple, rewarding side bet that extends the winning experience in interactive ways. For example, when the dealer shows an ace in Super 4, every active Super 4 wager wins. When the dealer hits a blackjack, the Super 4 Bonus triggers and players make a four-card poker hand combined with the dealer's two cards for a chance at a progressive jackpot win. Progressive prize amounts on Super 4 have climbed to more than $1,000,000 to offer life-changing wins.
