AGS signed a license agreement with the National Hockey League for NHL-themed slot games and table product offerings in the US and Canada.
The first slot machine in the hockey collection carries a Vegas Golden Knights-theme. The game made its debut in April at South Point Casino in Las Vegas. The new game taps several features designed to appeal to Vegas locals who have a lot of love for their VGK, as the team is referred to, including the team’s “Vegas Born” slogan.
The VGK slot game is larger than life – taking the space of three standard slot games at eight feet wide by eight feet tall. Game play features multiplier wilds that maximize the win to as much as 10x the bet, and scatter pays that can deliver massive wins when players land one or two Vegas Stars, one or two Golden Knights, or one multiplier. It has seating built for more than one player, which encourages players to sit and enjoy the experience with family and friends.
South Point slot director Cliff Paige said, “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, 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, it also provides a great social media photo opp.”
AGS chief marketing officer Julia Boguslawski added, “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.”
