AGS, formerly known as American Gaming Systems, supplies the global gaming industry with slot, table, interactive products and services.

AGS, formerly known as American Gaming Systems, supplies the global gaming industry with slot, table, interactive products and services. The company finds its roots in Class II Native American gaming. Its current CEO is David Lopez. 

Since its founding, the group has evolved beyond the Tribal market to an “all-inclusive commercial gaming supplier.” Its portfolio includes both Class II and Class III slot products, table games and social casino solutions, as well as real money gaming platforms and content.  

Apollo Global Management acquired the company in 2013. American Gaming Services was later rebranded as AGS in 2014. The following year, AGS acquired Cadillac Jack Slots + Rocketplay Social Gaming Co. 

The company went on to host its first GameOn Customer Summit in 2016. Two years later, the company acquired Gameiom Technologies and later went public. 

In recent years, the group has formed several strategic partnerships. AGS and Caesars recently signed a new partnership, building on past collaborations. The two expanded their existing agreement to include a new online game content agreement with Caesars Sportsbook & Casino. 

Under the terms of the latest deal, the company provided Caesars with its suite of online gaming content as a boost to the group’s online real-money gaming (RMG) operations. 

Its PlayAGS subsidiary recently signed a new online game content deal with North American operator, DraftKings. The amended deal was an expansion of an ongoing partnership with DKNG. The latest release gave New Jersey players access to real-money gaming (RMG) content through DraftKings’ online casino. 

The agreement allowed DraftKings Casino to gain more than 20 of AGS’ proprietary slot titles to boost its North American online casino operations.  

To date, AGS and DKNG offer New Jersey gaming fans 10 titles, including River Dragons, Fu Nan Fu Nu, Rakin' Bacon!, Jade Wins and Capital Gains, as well as Peacock Beauty and Tiger Lord, two games from Imperial 88.

Michael Hershman - Dispelling casino 'myths:' New York needs to lose fear of the unknown

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.
