MAJOR ACHIEVEMENTS

During Lopez’s tenure, the company has formed several strategic partnerships and has continued to build upon its existing relationships with other notable industry leaders.  

AGS and Caesars recently signed a new partnership, building on past collaborations. The two have expanded their existing partnership to include a new online game content agreement with Caesars Sportsbook & Casino. 

Under the terms of the latest deal, the company will provide Caesars with its suite of online gaming content as a boost to the group’s online real-money gaming (RMG) operations. 

The provider said its recent agreement with Caesars “continues to cement AGS' position as a leading provider of slot content to regulated real-money gaming operators across the globe.”  

EMPLOYMENT

Before entering the gaming industry as an executive, Lopez spent nearly seven years in the US military. Lopez served in the US Army from January 1993 to December 1999. After leaving the military, Lopez went on to work for Shuffle Master as its Chief Operating Officer. He spent 13 years there. 

In 2012, Lopez joined Global Cash Access and spent almost two years there as the company’s President. He joined AGS in February 2014 and stepped into his current role as the group’s CEO. 

PRODUCTS LAUNCHED

Under his leadership, more than 20 of AGS’ proprietary slot titles were made available to New Jersey players through a recent online game content partnership between PlayAGS and North American operator, DraftKings. Under the terms of the agreement, DraftKings Casino gained AGS’ proprietary slot titles to boost its North American online casino operations.  

The amended deal is an expansion of an ongoing partnership with DKNG. The latest release will give New Jersey players access to real-money gaming (RMG) content through DraftKings’ online casino. 

To date, AGS and DKNG offer New Jersey gaming fans 10 titles, including River Dragons, Fu Nan Fu Nu, Rakin' Bacon!, Jade Wins and Capital Gains, as well as Peacock Beauty and Tiger Lord, two games from Imperial 88.
