Gaming supplier AGS announced last month that it has acquired all assets and operations of New Jersey-based In Bet Gaming, a leading developer of proprietary table games and table-game side bets.
AGS also announced that In Bet founder, President and Chief Executive Officer Ronald LaDuca will join AGS’ executive team as vice president of table products sales.
“We have had a strong partnership with the In Bet team for a number of years,” said John Hemberger, AGS senior vice president of table products, “and in 2017 we bolstered our relationship by acquiring five of their dynamic table progressives that continue to drive business for us today. Now, in addition to investing in the remainder of their innovative game assets, we are thrilled to welcome In Bet Founder President, and CEO Ron LaDuca to our sales team in a leadership role.”
LaDuca, a gaming industry veteran of 30 years, brings more than a decade of executive experience to AGS. He founded In Bet Gaming in 2009, leveraging his years of table games experience in casino operations to develop new concepts for games that add excitement to the casino pit while providing players with the opportunities for a more rewarding experience.
Before founding In Bet Gaming, LaDuca served in numerous table-game operations roles, helping to open the Showboat Atlantic City, Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut, and West Virginia’s Mardi Gras Casino & Resort and the Greenbrier.
Under this agreement, AGS acquired four proprietary games from In Bet Gaming:
- 3 Card Blitz—an exciting, fast-paced flush-based game in which the player and dealer compete to get the higher-valued hand.
- Dragon Poker—a four-card poker game in which players build traditional poker hands with a special deck of 53 Asian-themed cards.
- Double Down Blackjack—a quick-paying blackjack-style game in which players vie for the higher point total against the dealer.
- Straight to the Flush—a new poker game in which players build their largest straight or flush and go heads-up against the dealer.
