AGS has strengthened its relationship with the Vegas Golden Knights by signing a licencing agreement with the NHL team.
The collaboration will see the development of NHL-themed slot games and table product offerings in the United States and Canada, with a Vegas Golden Knights-themed slot machine set to debut at South Point Casino on Las Vegas Boulevard as the first in the series.
The Action of the Knight, sponsored by AGS, a corporate partner of the Vegas Golden Knights, replays and highlights a crucial moment from each home game.
AGS has been able to provide community outreach programmes such as introducing Golden Knights team ambassadors to its adopted Griffith Elementary School, as well as numerous brand participation opportunities for its local staff, thanks to its affiliation with the team.
‘Engaging and highly social gaming experience’
AGS’s chief marketing officer, Julia Boguslawski, explained: “As a corporate partner of the Golden Knights and being headquartered in Las Vegas, it was the perfect opportunity for AGS to deliver an engaging and highly social gaming experience on an attention-grabbing slot cabinet to capitalise on the team’s enormous popularity and success.”
The new Vegas Golden Knights slot game, which is eight feet wide and eight feet tall and takes up the space of three regular slot games, will be available to players at South Point Casino.
When players land one or two Vegas Stars, one or two Golden Knights, or one multiplier, the game features multiplier wilds that can increase the win up to 10x the bet, as well as scatter pays that can provide increased wins when players land one or two Vegas Stars, one or two Golden Knights, or one multiplier.

Cliff Paige, South Point slot director said: “We are elated to be the first casino to unveil the Vegas Golden Knights slot game, and look forward to offering our loyal players, many of whom are Las Vegas locals and huge Golden Knights fans, with a hockey-themed slot experience based on an enormously popular team.
“We expect the Vegas Golden Knights game to do very well; not only does the game offer a community-style play experience as people gather to watch those giant reels spin, but it also provides a great social media photo opp.”
