Gaming and payment technology supplier Everi Holdings has expanded its partnership with the Alberta Gaming & Liquor Commission (AGLC) to provide its portfolio of gaming products to casinos across the province.
AGLC has approved a live trial of Everi’s gaming machines in Alberta in the coming weeks and once the trial is completed, the latter anticipates a continued placement of its standard and premium video and mechanical reel gaming machines, with potential expansion to additional facilities within the AGLC network beginning in early 2016.
The AGLC licenses and oversees 28 casinos and racing entertainment centers throughout Alberta.
Everi, a provider of payment solutions to Alberta casinos for over 19 years, will also add its JackpotXchange, an automated jackpot payment kiosk, which is in the queue for testing with a live-trial period to follow.
According to Everi Executive VP of Sales and Marketing Edward Peters, Everi’s broadened relationship with AGLC is an important point of progress for the company as it increases the number of markets in which it is licensed to provide gaming products and payment solutions.
“The AGLC has been a valued partner and we have mutually benefited from the placement of our payments solutions at facilities across the province. Our entrance into this market for our games business and newly expanded relationship with the AGLC, which will now include a diverse floor-wide portfolio of gaming entertainment and cash access solutions, will deliver new value to our partner while helping us expand our market share,” added Peters.
“We look forward to building upon our partnership and utilizing Everi’s product suite to further improve the patron experience at casinos in the province as we consider bringing some of Everi’s acclaimed gaming products, including TournEvent, to players in Alberta,” said AGLC VP Lottery & Gaming Services Niaz Nejad.
Foxwoods Resort Casino to continue relationship with Everi
Everi has also announced that it will continue to offer its gaming software to Foxwoods Resorts Casino.
The extended partnership will also see Foxwoods adding more titles to Everi’s TournEvent slot tournament system.
President and CEO of Foxwoods Felix Rappaport stated that the TournEvent system is very popular among Foxwoods customers and everyone has been impressed with the system’s capabilities. Rappaport pointed out that the casino has benefited from the partnership with Everi and it just made sense to increase the presence of Everi on the gaming floor of Foxwoods with the installation of even more TournEvent devices.
