AGS

How Did AGS Start?

Better known as AGS, American Gaming Systems is a provider of slots, table and card games that has been around since the year 1996. Based in the US in Henderson, Nevada, AGS traces its roots back to the Native American Class II land-based gambling industry. It actually started off as a provider of bingo and lottery games, which do not need licensing in Native American territories. Changes in the laws during the 1980s and 1990s helped the company expand to start providing Class III games, which include higher-stakes casino games. Currently AGS has over 10,000 cabinets installed throughout regulated sites in both the USA and the rest of the world It also counts over 400 employees across multiple US cities and globally, which bring a diverse skill set to AGS games and services. 

The current CEO and president of AGS is David Lopez, who came to the company in 2014 with over 15 years of experience in the industry. Prior to AGS Lopez served as CEO of Global Cash Access. Before that he was COO of Shuffle Master. At Shuffle Master Lopez held various positions, including Interim CEO, Executive Vice President, President of the Americas, Vice President of Product Management and member of the Board of Directors. 

AGS and Online Games

Of course, not everyone can make it to a land-based casino, which is why AGS expanded into the realm of online and mobile games through the AGS Interactive division. This brings slots, table games, lotteries and bingo titles to a wider audience, with over 600 games across mobile, desktop and social platforms. AGS has partnerships with a number of third-party studios, such as Ainsworth and 1x2gaming, but many AGS games have been created in-house by the company itself. AGS Social provides free to play slots and games via interactive casinos. The UK- and Gibraltar-licensed AxSys division offers the AGS range across many regulated markets. AGS also has ConnexSys, a white label casino platform that is fully customisable and complete with easy management and deep analytics.
