Everi Holdings Inc, a U.S.-based specialist in cash handling technology and electronic game content for the casino industry, says it has a partnership with bZillions Inc for the development of “new gaming content”.
A Wednesday release from Everi described the other party as an independent game design studio based in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the United States. The tie up will focus on creating games for Everi’s “mForce” electronic slot game platform.
According to the release, bZillions will develop content for at least 10 new games over the next 12 months for several of the Everi’s newest gaming cabinets, including the Empire MPX and the Empire 5527.
“bZillions has a track record of creating product that drives increased performance on all sorts of different platforms,” said Dean Ehrlich, executive vice president and gaming business leader for Everi, in a prepared statement contained in the announcement.
In other developments, analyst Brian McGill of Telsey Advisory Group LLC said in a Sunday note that Everi expected to increase its slot sales in 2018 by 10 percent year-on-year, to nearly 4,000 units.
“We think this is realistic and believe it is possible there could be upside,” stated the analyst. “In the game operations segment, the company expects 7 percent to 8 percent growth in the installed base with better yields in each quarter than the prior year,” added Mr McGill.
