Everi Expands Strategic Partnership With Foxwoods Resort Casino With Addition of Popular TournEvent Electronic Gaming Machines

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE:EVRI) ("Everi" or the "Company") announced today that it has expanded its long-term partnership with Foxwoods® Resort Casino, one of the premier entertainment destinations in the Northeast. The recent inclusion of Everi's revolutionary TournEvent® slot tournament system to the Foxwoods gaming floor has been an overwhelming success, prompting the casino to increase its TournEvent bank of games.

Widely recognized as the industry standard in slot tournament systems, TournEvent can be found in more than 300 casinos and can seamlessly switch from in-revenue gaming to out-of-revenue tournaments within seconds. TournEvent was recently upgraded and now offers more gaming titles and a number of enhancements designed to improve both player entertainment and operator efficiency.

"TournEvent has been extremely popular with our guests and we couldn't be more impressed with the capabilities of this system," said Felix Rappaport, President & CEO Foxwoods Resort Casino. "Our relationship with Everi on the payments side has been excellent, so it made sense to work with them on increasing their presence on our gaming floor with the addition of more TournEvent gaming machines. We now have the ability to offer guests more opportunities to play in our slot tournaments, and most recently held our own $1,000,000 Dream Slot Tournament, as a part of our $25 Million Dollar Summer of Dreams campaign, that was incredibly successful. As a trusted partner, Everi's support has been outstanding every step of the way."

"Everi has been providing Foxwoods with strategic payments solutions for years and we're pleased to have the opportunity to enhance our relationship by supplying them with our popular TournEvent gaming machines," said Ram V. Chary, Everi President and Chief Executive Officer. "As the industry's only single-source provider of casino gaming equipment and payments solutions, we're in a unique position to offer our customers a wide array of products that impact gaming, finance and compliance. We look forward to our continued partnership with Foxwoods as they further establish themselves as an industry leader."
