GameON was again a lot about sharing with the operators in attendance how AGS endeavors to conduct business and what its values have been and continue to be, now as a publicly-held company.

AGS was acquired by Apollo Global Management, whose vision was to build a more robust global gaming supplier.

Among the key steps in the interim was the acquisition of Cadillac Jack, which doubled the size of the company in terms of employees and game installments.
