Everi Holdings will highlight its national, tribally linked, Class II, bingo network, Bingo Treasures, at the 23rd annual Global Gaming Expo October 9-12 at booth #150. The Bingo Treasures network is anticipated to launch in early 2024.

Everi will market and promote Bingo Treasures to its Class II customer base, alongside other Everi assets, systems, and teams to expedite customer onboarding, marketing, and launch processes over the coming months.

The company picked up the ownership rights to this gaming product when it acquired the assets of Video King LLC. In conjunction with the purchase of this product, Everi has also announced the recent completion of a Software License Agreement with Parlay Games Inc., of Burlington, Ontario, wherein Everi licensed certain software and platform assets developed by Parlay for the Bingo Treasures network.

“We are making consistent progress with tribal operators to be first movers for the launch of Bingo Treasures at their facilities. The combination of the game’s Class II Bingo software certification and patent-pending methodologies enables us to create a brand-new gaming vertical, with a linked national bingo game with an opportunity to win a multi-million-dollar weekly jackpot, which will only be offered by U.S. Sovereign Nation Indian Tribes,” said Tim Richards, Everi’s Executive Vice President, Strategy and Digital Gaming.

“Parlay has completed our agreement with Everi and is fine-tuning our collective vision to link tribes together with Class II-certified Bingo products. We intend to offer Bingo Treasures to empower tribes to offer bingo cards for purchase from any facility approved by their Tribal Gaming Authorities,” Scott White, CEO of Parlay Games Inc, said.
