LAS VEGAS, Jan. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), a premier provider of land-based and digital casino gaming content and products, financial technology and player loyalty solutions, today announced that it has agreed to acquire certain strategic assets, including game development technology and intellectual property of Atlas Gaming Pty Ltd and Atlas Gaming Technologies Pty Ltd (collectively, “Atlas”), an Australia-based developer and provider of proprietary gaming content and products. Everi expects the acquisition to close within the next 60 days.

We look forward to Atlas’ game developers and engineers bringing a global perspective that will help us execute a more robust product roadmap and support our growth strategy of delivering best-in-class content. This transaction strengthens Everi’s development capabilities and will further bolster the future expansion and differentiation of our gaming products. We expect to leverage the Atlas development team and purchased assets to provide more original content for our current customer base while creating an opportunity to further penetrate the markets Atlas has historically served, including Australia.”
