AGS Expands Table Games Business With Acquisition of Three New Titles

Acquisition Adds a Diverse Trio of Poker, Blackjack and Craps Variants to AGS's Growing Library of Table Game Brands

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2014) - AGS® (the "Company"), a proven gaming machine supplier for Class II markets with an emerging presence in both Class III markets and new product categories, announced that effective September 29, 2014, the Company has purchased three new titles from the In Bet Gaming library -- Criss Cross Poker™, In Bet™, and Hot Roller Craps™, and will be exhibiting them at this week's Global Gaming Expo (G2E).

Criss Cross Poker is the first proprietary poker derivative that AGS has added to its portfolio. The game gives players double the chance to win by playing two five-card hands each round in which players can win across, down, or both ways. The game is currently installed in 15 locations across North America and is clearly on its way to becoming the hottest new poker game on the market. In Bet is a blackjack side bet with approximately 200+ installs across North America. Similar to the game Acey-Deucey, it adds a unique twist to standard blackjack tables, creating more excitement at the table. Hot Roller Craps is a side bet for dice tables that rewards players when at least two number combinations are rolled before a seven.

"We are focused on strategically growing our table games portfolio, concentrating on adding only the most compelling and innovative games, that are designed to excite our customers and players alike," said John Hemberger, Vice President of Table Products at AGS. "These three titles are quickly gaining momentum in the marketplace, and we are excited to form a long-term relationship on them with In Bet Gaming and the company's President, Ron LaDuca. AGS is dedicated to seeking out and developing the hottest new games, and this acquisition is another strong example of that."

The Company will be providing hands-on demonstrations of both In Bet and Criss Cross Poker at G2E in booth 4453, along with the award-winning War Blackjack™ and the all-new War Baccarat™.
