Commercial gaming supplier AGS on Wednesday said the Michigan Gaming Control Board awarded the company a provisional iGaming supplier license.
The Michigan GCB is expected to approve online gambling either in the waning days of this year or early in 2021.
Las Vegas-based AGS said when iGaming does go live in Michigan, having the provisional license means it will be able to provide its proprietary game content to licensed online casino operators in the state via its Remote Gaming Server.
Some of AGS’s game titles include Capital Gains, Fu Nan Fu Nu, Golden Wins, Jade Wins, Longhorn Jackpots and Rakin’ Bacon.
AGS currently distributes its online game content to players in regulated markets in Europe and Latin America, as well as New Jersey and Pennsylvania in the United States. Michigan is expected to be the company's next expansion.
The company also partners with many of the world's largest online operators to provide AGS game content and games from third-party suppliers through its AxSys Games Marketplace.
“We are excited about being awarded our provisional iGaming license in Michigan and look forward to helping the state launch its new iGaming program, AGS Executive Vice President Matt Reback said in a statement. “We are confident that Michigan is going to be a strong market for us, with three commercial casinos that cater to a repeat player base, and player familiarity with AGS games due to the popularity and longevity of our land-based games in the Michigan market.”
AGS got its start in the Class II Native American gaming market, but it has expanded into Class II and Class III slot products, a table products portfolio, real-money gaming platforms and content, plus social casino solutions.
