LAS VEGAS (Nov. 14, 2019) – Everi Holdings Inc., (“Everi” or the “Company”), the casino gaming industry’s only single source provider of gaming products and financial technology and loyalty solutions, received the gold medal for Best Slot Product for its Smokin’ Hot Stuff Wicked Wheel™ game theme and silver medal for Best Consumer-Service Technology for its QuikTicket™ solution from Global Gaming Business as part of their 18th Annual Gaming and Technology Awards. Both awards were presented to Everi at the 19th annual Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas on Oct. 16, 2019.
Based on the friendly and fiery comic book character, Smokin’ Hot Stuff Wicked Wheel was released in late 2018 and continues to perform well on casino floors, consistently ranking high in industry slot performance reports. The game offers players 243 Ways™ to win with a classic symbol set, Hot Stuff multipliers, and a progressive pick bonus with progressives available at all bet levels.
QuikTicket is a simple and flexible feature to help operators maximize funds to their floor and improve their operating efficiencies while offering their guests another secure, efficient, and convenient cash access transaction. Available alongside ATM and cash advance options, QuikTicket dispenses gaming tickets in lieu of cash from Everi kiosks with the transaction authorized as a point-of-sale (POS) debit purchase.
