Jackpot Digital to Deliver ETGs to Minnesota Casino

After the strong conclusion of 2022, Jackpot Digital now shifts the momentum into 2023, as the British Columbian gaming supplier signs another important partnership agreement. Just this week, the provider of gaming machines informed that it has struck an agreement to supply Casino Mille Lacs in Onamia, Minnesota with two of its innovative Jackpot Blitz® product.

As a leader in the manufacturing of electronic table games for the cruise ship industry and regulated land-based gambling industry, Jackpot Digital has acquired many partners on its way. The company is headquartered in Vancouver, B.C. and its specialty is multiplayer gaming products including casino and poker games, which are supported by a robust suite of backend tools.

Adding Another U.S. Partner

With this latest agreement, the Canadian gaming provider will acquire yet another important client in the North American markets. Its newest partner, Grand Casino Mille Lacs is a premium gaming amenity in Minnesota, which offers a hotel, 16,400 square feet of gaming space equipped with over 1,800 slots, 18 blackjack tables, a poker room and a bingo venue.

Commented on the latest announcement, President & CEO of the B.C. manufacturer, Jake Kalpakian, said that the company is pleased to kick off its collaboration with Casino Mille Lacs, which in his words, is a prominent gaming brand in Minnesota. He also noted that players and casinos in the industry are thrilled by the provider’s Jackpot Blitz® product.

Furthermore, Mr. Kalpakian explained that due to the unprecedented situation of 2020, casinos from the global gaming industry are suffering from labour shortages and inflationary wage pressures. In his words, the hit to the industry has made the company’s electronic table games a much more appealing and sought-after product and the company is well-positioned to take advantage of the macro trend toward automation.

He also stressed that via the innovative dealerless Jackpot Blitz® technology, casinos are able to start to see more revenue by dealing more hands per hour while at the same time, they cut on costs and avoiding operational and employee requirements. The President & CEO added that the demand for the ETG has increased after the debut of its new generation Jackpot Blitz®.

Recent Announcements and Partnerships

In January 2023, Jackpot Digital also announced an agreement with a leading global gaming equipment manufacturer. The anonymous partner is set to deliver its services globally on a sole and exclusive basis to the B.C. firm. It will also manufacture the supplier’s dealerless electronic table games as well as deliver fully assembled Jackpot Blitz® ETGs to casino operators across the globe.

As mentioned the company also had a strong end to the last calendar year, since in December it struck a Master Services Agreement with PENN Entertainment. The company is one of the largest casino operators in the U.S. with 43 properties across 20 states. Via the Master Services Agreement, supplied its Jackpot Blitz® ETGs to a selection of its properties.
