AGS is a fun, exciting, and growing company focused on making amazing slot machine games.  What is a slot machine game you ask?  Well it’s like an Xbox video game except people can win real money.

We are looking for a self-motivated person who enjoys the complexities of working in a multidiscipline creative environment.  If you love making games, and making them with other amazing people then we want to meet you. 

AGS is a full-service designer and manufacturer of gaming products for the casino floor. The Company’s roots are in the Class II, Native American market, and it has recently expanded its product lines to include top performing slot games for the Class III commercial marketplace, as well as live felt table games and mobile gaming.

The recent acquisition of Cadillac Jack®, entry into the table games market, and addition of a mobile gaming segment with the acquisition of RocketPlay, denote a dramatic expansion of AGS products. Increased slot titles and jurisdictional licenses have made AGS the second largest supplier of Class II games in the world, and its presence in Class III casinos continues to keep the pace. The diverse line of table products can help casino operators find exactly what they need for any part of the pit, and most are available to play for fun online. Last, but not least, the company aims to capture a whole new audience by offering its content through mobile gaming.
