Aruze Gaming America, Inc. Announces Plan for Financial Restructuring

Published

on

 

Restructuring to commence via Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing

Aruze Gaming (Aruze), a leading developer of gambling entertainment solutions for the global casino market, announced it has filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the State of Nevada.

This action is a part of Aruze’s efforts to seek financial restructuring in the wake of a recent garnishment judgment against Aruze resulting from a separate judgment against Aruze’s shareholder.  Aruze intends to continue operating normally and utilize Chapter 11 protections to provide for an orderly consideration of the relative rights of Aruze’s creditors, customers, and employees.

“This filing was a critical business strategy we were forced to make due to external factors outside our control. We fully understand the implications associated with this action, but we believe this is the best way for Aruze to maintain the overall health of our business,” said Global CEO Yugo Kinoshita. “This restructuring has no reflection on the health of Aruze. We’re proud of the advances we have made to establish Aruze as a casino mainstay. We are highly confident this action will protect our brand, our legacy and our suite of games. As we progress through this process, we are assured that Aruze will emerge as an even stronger company.”

2023 IGA

Aruze Introduces Gong Gong Lai Fu Titles to US Market with ActivPlay™, Video Slots and Suite of ETGs to IGA 2023

Published

on

 

Aruze Gaming America (Aruze), a leading developer of gambling entertainment solutions for the global casino market, today announced the US release of Gong Gong Lai Fu at the 2023 IGA show. Gong Gong Lai Fu has two title options, Mighty Buddha and Caishen Riches, exclusive to Aruze’s top performing cabinet the Muso Curve 55.

Aruze has spent its history innovating the classics without discarding classic offerings. Casinos need to continually offer a portfolio of games that draw on familiarity while also offering a new experience, leveraging new technologies to create active gameplay and new play styles. Aruze demonstrates this by continuing to introduce new and exciting video slots, like Gong Gong Lai Fu, and ETGs, in addition to its now industry-famous Activ-Play offerings such as Go Go Claw. By asserting both sides of its offerings, it encourages casinos everywhere to innovate game offerings without sacrificing game elements that gamblers have come to love.

“No industry can survive without innovating, and that includes casinos. Imagine a casino without ETGs or even video slots; it might be hard to fathom, but that was once a reality,” said Global CEO of Aruze Gaming, Yugo Kinoshita. “Innovation is tricky, and we recognize that. Casinos that lean too far into innovation risk abandoning their original audience, and casinos who focus on tradition over any innovation risk falling into obscurity. That’s why we create the best of both worlds; new innovative games like Go Go Claw, and iterations of classics, like Shoot to Win Craps and high performing slots on our exceptional family of cabinets. We believe players deserve the best that casinos can offer, and we are dedicated to equipping casinos with whatever they need to deliver that.”
