AGS® to Showcase New Table and Slot Games in San Diego at NIGA’s 30th Annual Indian Gaming Tradeshow and Convention

March 30, 2015

LAS VEGAS & SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AGS (the “Company”), a leading designer and manufacturer of gaming products for the casino floor, today announced that it will exhibit a variety of gaming experiences, including new slot and table games, at NIGA’s Tradeshow and Convention in San Diego on April 1-2, 2015. Product demonstrations will be available at booth #921.

Table Games that Drive Profits for Casinos

AGS will exhibit Count’s Kustoms Blackjack™ for the first time to a wide audience at this year’s NIGA show. The first of its kind, Count’s Kustoms Blackjack is the only live table game with a side bet that offers players the chance to win a custom car, truck or motorcycle from Count’s Kustoms®, a renowned automobile restoration and customization shop made popular by the reality television series Counting Cars™. The game will be displayed in AGS’s booth alongside an original motorcycle direct from the shop in Las Vegas.

Count’s Kustoms Blackjack represents a real shift in live table games,” said John Hemberger, VP of Table Products for AGS. “For years, players have had the chance to win a vehicle on a slot machine, but never before has this type of top prize been offered on a table game. The top prize isn’t just any car either; it’s a one-of-a-kind vehicle from possibly the most popular custom car shop in the country, Count’s Kustoms. The game captivates not only your traditional blackjack player, but a whole new set of players looking for a unique experience and a thrilling opportunity to win one of these custom vehicles. The excitement surrounding our initial installs is incredible, and we only expect that to increase as our installed base rapidly grows.”

In addition to Count’s Kustoms Blackjack, AGS will conduct live product demos of its newest poker games, 2 Card Poker™ and Top 5 Poker™. 2 Card Poker is a fast and easy to play poker variation where players are dealt four cards and play their best two-card hand. Pairs are the highest hand, followed by two-card straight flushes, two-card flushes, and then high card. In Top 5 Poker each player and the dealer are dealt seven cards to get as many of the Top 5 ranking cards (Ace/King/Queen/Jack/Ten) in the deck as possible. Players win by having more Top 5 cards than the dealer. Play for Fun versions of 2 Card Poker and nine of the Company’s 15 other table games are available at

Slot Experiences that Break the Mold

AGS will exhibit a range of new and recently released slot titles, including the ever popular Colossal Diamonds® and some new additions to the lineup with Dr. Cheddar’s Clone Machine™ and the visually stunning Tidepool Wonders™. Dr. Cheddar is the next innovation in a lineup of successful wheel-topped games for the Company. Featuring cartoon mice as mad scientists and the irresistible mechanical wheel in the top box, AGS plans for Dr. Cheddarto multiply profits across the casino floor. Tidepool Wonders is the next installment to be featured in the Company’s popular Skytower™ cabinet, and contains exciting expanding reels and its own virtual wheel that can award players free spins in the Wheel Bonus round.

The Company is also proud to introduce its latest addition to the It Pays to Know™ series, Family Feud®. The game is based on the most popular television game show in history and features an intriguing skill-based trivia bonus round similar to the one found in the Company’s standout Ripley’s Believe It or Not!® game. The survey questions in the game come directly from the show, and by choosing the most popular answers players can affect the outcome of the bonus game and win more credits.

“When customers walk into our booth at the show, it will be very clear that AGS is a serious player in producing high-quality content and unique slot mechanics through our organic and licensed brands,” said Andrew Burke, VP of Slot Products for AGS. “Family Feud is a great example of how AGS can translate an iconic TV show into a compelling gaming experience that preserves the most essential hallmarks of the brand. Given our deep relationships and market leadership in tribal casinos, we are confident our strong ensemble of new and proven game titles will resonate loudly with both customers at NIGA and their players.”
