      Why PlayAGS (AGS) Stock Was Up After-Hours?

      PlayAGS, Inc. (NYSE: AGS) shares experienced an upward trajectory during the extended trading session on Wednesday. The stock saw a notable increase of 4.31%, reaching $7.74 after-hours. However, during the regular session, AGS stock exhibited marginal movement, sliding by a mere 0.41% to conclude at $7.42. This positive momentum can be attributed to the recent launch of a new product by the gaming industry supplier.

      In a strategic move this month, PlayAGS (AGS) introduced an innovative, first-of-its-kind branded slot room concept at Miccosukee Casino & Resort in Miami, Florida. Emulating the playful and charismatic essence of Cornsquealius, the primary pig character from AGS’ popular slot game, Rakin’ Bacon, the space boasts an angelic neon selfie wall, a mural adorned with floating pigs in a heavenly setting, LED billboard-wrapped entrances, and a collection of 33 of AGS’ top-performing titles, including Rakin’ Bacon and Rakin’ Bacon Deluxe games.

      The concept behind ‘Hog Heaven’ was conceived by AGS with the aim of providing Miccosukee players with a delightful environment to enjoy their favorite games. The incorporation of social elements such as a selfie wall encourages patrons to capture and share their experiences at the venue. PlayAGS demonstrated a deliberate effort in crafting a distinctive experience for players, immersing them in the world of the games.

      Since the initial release of Rakin’ Bacon in 2018, AGS observed players’ strong affinity for the game mechanics and the endearing pig character, Cornsquealius. By continually introducing new variations and brand extensions of Rakin’ Bacon, PlayAGS aims to expand its fanbase and introduce fresh avenues for player engagement.

      The slot room not only showcases Rakin’ Bacon games but also features AGS’ top-charting titles, including Long Bao Bao and Shamrock Fortunes from the Triple Coin Treasures game family, River Dragons Jade, and Gold Inferno, which marks the supplier’s foray into three-reel video games.
