PlayAGS, Inc. (NYSE: AGS) (“AGS” or the “Company”), a leading designer and supplier of electronic gaming machines, table products, and interactive solutions for the global gaming industry, today became the first gaming equipment supplier to enter into a multi-year corporate partnership with the Vegas Golden Knights National Hockey League franchise.

The AGS Play of the Game will replay and highlight a key moment from each home game.
Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz said, “Adding the fastest-growing gaming equipment supplier to our roster of team partners is a big milestone for our organization and we couldn’t be more thrilled about partnering with AGS. AGS has arenowned corporate culture and expanding global reach, enabling us to connect our brand to their employees and customers in Las Vegas, across the country, and around the world.”
AGS President and Chief Executive Officer David Lopez said, “AGS employees have been huge Golden Knights fans from the team’s inception, and we are excited to take our support and love for this team to another level as corporate partners, working together with the Golden Knights and other corporate partners such as Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts, Station Casinos, and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, to name a few, to truly demonstrate our mutual obsession with the game.”
Lopez added, “Like the Las Vegas Golden Knights, we are ‘Vegas-proud’, with our worldwide headquarters in the Las Vegas Valley. And there are other similarities – we are relatively new players in the gaming supplier space and we have certainly been underestimated. Both AGS and the Golden Knights formed strong teams, came together quickly under a set of unique core values, and have never lost sight that winning is all about acohesive team and character-driven culture.”
