Synergy Blue’s Washington to Step Down

Synergy Blue, the former player loyalty business that shifted in 2016 to become a manufacturer of a variety of “skill-influenced” and arcade-style gaming machines, announced that Georg Washington (l.), the company’s founder and CEO, will be leaving his post early this year.

Washington led the company’s entry into the slot market with casino games on which skill played a part in success, releasing games involving everything from video-game dexterity to driving skills in a simulated race.

Washington said he is taking a break before starting his “next chapter” as an entrepreneur.

“It’s been an incredible journey at Synergy Blue with an amazing team,” Washington said in a statement. “I am very proud of the hard work the team has done and what we have accomplished in such a small amount of time.”
