AGS has signed a licence agreement with the National Hockey League for NHL-themed slot games and table product offerings in the U.S. and Canada.
A Vegas Golden Knights-themed slot machine is the first in the collection, with a debut late last week at South Point Casino on Las Vegas Boulevard.
Players at South Point Casino will be able to take a spin on the new slot game – Vegas Golden Knights. The hockey-themed game takes the space of three standard slot games at eight feet wide and eight feet tall.
Located just outside the Big Sur Oyster Bar at South Point, the Vegas Golden Knights slot game features multiplier wilds that maximise the win up to 10x the bet, and scatter pays that can deliver wins when players land one or two Vegas Stars, one or two Golden Knights, or one multiplier.
With a roomy seat built for more than one player, the Vegas Golden Knights slot game encourages players to sit and enjoy the experience with family and friends.
South Point Slot Director, Cliff Paige, commented: “We are elated to be the first casino to unveil the Vegas Golden Knights slot game, and look forward to offering our loyal players, many of whom are Las Vegas locals and huge Golden Knights fans, with a hockey-themed slot experience based on an enormously popular team.
“We expect the Vegas Golden Knights game to do very well; not only does the game offer a community-style play experience as people gather to watch those giant reels spin, but it also provides a great social media photo opp.”
AGS, a corporate partner of the Vegas Golden Knights, sponsors the Play of the Knight, which replays and highlights a key moment from each home game.
Through its partnership with the team, AGS has been able to offer community outreach initiatives such as bringing Golden Knights team ambassadors to its adopted Griffith Elementary School, a Title 1 school located in Las Vegas, in addition to providing multiple brand engagement opportunities for its local employees.
AGS Chief Marketing Officer, Julia Boguslawski, said: “As a corporate partner of the Golden Knights and being headquartered in Las Vegas, it was the perfect opportunity for AGS to deliver an engaging and highly social gaming experience on an attention-grabbing slot cabinet to capitalize on the team’s enormous popularity and success.”
