AGS Enters Pennsylvania Market

Gaming supplier AGS announced its first game placements in Pennsylvania at Parx Casino in Bensalem, a suburb of Philadelphia. The games went live on the Parx casino floor last month, with more games slated to debut across the state over the next several months.

“We are excited about entering the robust Pennsylvania market and honored to do so at Parx Casino, a state-of-the-art property that attracts players from greater Philadelphia, the sixth largest metropolitan area in the U.S. with more than 6 million residents,” said Andrew Burke, AGS senior vice president of slot products.

For its Pennsylvania launch, AGS debuted its industry-leading Orion Portrait, Orion Slant, ICON and Big Red slot cabinets and an array of its highest-performing game titles, including Fu Nan Fu Nu, Jade Wins, Olympus Strikes, Golden Wins and Colossal Stars.

Following its game debut at Parx, AGS will roll out its games across Pennsylvania, which currently has 12 land-based casinos. In 2018, the slot machines and table games in Pennsylvania casinos generated a record gross revenue total of $3.2 billion—the highest total ever in the industry’s 13 years of operation—with Parx Casino leading the way.
