GS announced on Wednesday 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 week, 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 six million residents," AGS Senior Vice President – Slot Products Andrew Burke, said.
For its Pennsylvania launch, AGS debuted its 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.
Parx Casino’s Marc Oppenheimer, the Chief Marketing Officer of Greenwood Gaming, the owner and operator of Parx, said: "We are honored that AGS chose Parx Casino as its launch partner in Pennsylvania. We have been eager to add AGS’ entertaining games to our slot floor and offer our players the high-volatility excitement that AGS games are recognized for, with slot enthusiasts’ favorite features, such as progressive jackpots and free games."
Following its game debut at Parx, AGS will roll-out its games across Pennsylvania, which currently has 10 standalone and racetrack casinos, along with two resort 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.
