Everi Celebrates Winning Four Categories at EKG Slot Awards
Everi Holdings (NYSE: EVRI), a leading producer of a large variety of gambling related products and technology, has won awards in four categories at the third annual EKG Slot Awards.
The Eilers & Krejcik Gaming’s EKG Slot Awards aim to recognize the top slot machine game development in the land-based casino industry and the interactive sector. The winners are chosen through a data-driven process that takes into account input from a distinguished industry advisory board and voting from more than 100 slot directors from over 300 casinos across the US and Canada, representing approximately 300,000 slot machines.
Last year, Everi won three awards and this year’s haul of four out of a possible twelve awards makes it the second most honored slot supplier. The company’s Empire Flex® cabinet won the award for Top Performing New Cabinet in the Core Games category. The Cash Machine® game won the award for Top Performing Core Mechanical Reel Game for the second year running. Smokin Hot Stuff Wicked Wheel® won the Top Performing 3rd Party IP Branded Game, marking the second consecutive year that Everi has won that category. Finally, the company also won the Most Improved Supplier – Core category award.
We are deeply honored by this industry recognition by our casino operator customers for the performance our games deliver on their slot floors and also appreciate the forum Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, which works year-round to highlight the performance of games on casino floors, has created to recognize great slot product and the companies that are at the forefront of innovation.
He went on to say the awards are a testament to the commitment of the company’s teams and to the hard work put in by everyone in the organization as they strive to “become one of the leaders in the industry by reimagining the gaming experience.” He added that the company expects its new slot products due to be launched this year will once again “demonstrate our ability to develop even more engaging player experiences.”
