Background Information

AGS supplies product and services to both the gaming and wagering industries, land-based and online.
The AGS VSS ( has been in commercial operation in Australia since September 1998 and has been constantly refined. The VSS was first installed in over 50 Clubs providing Keno Displays in the Australian Capital Territory (through ACTTAB Limited.)
The VSS has been operational in approximately 650 SA Lotteries venues in South Australia since 2002. The introduction of the VSS by SA Lotteries has been solely attributed to a turn around in revenue trends from declining to an impressive 29% increase over the ensuing 7 years (see graph below).


The VSS has operated in a 3-channel mode in approximately 1000 of Tabcorp's Keno venues in New South Wales clubs. This installation was through Club Gaming Systems Pty. Ltd. in December 1999.
The VSS is the Display Solution of choice by Tattersals throughout its 250 Queensland network agencies. As a result, the VSS has passed the rigorous Queensland Office of Gaming regulation (QOGR) approval process.
The South Australia Totalisator Board (SATAB) has installed the VSS in 160 Outlets.

Tried and tested technology
AGS' target market and product strategy are to provide first grade quality software that meets the uncompromising demands of the gaming and financial industries.
Unlike the vast majority of display solutions available, the AGS VSS is built to the exacting standards required by gaming regulators in first world jurisdictions such as Queensland, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, South Australia and Nevada. The displays must not be allowed to provide anything but accurate and regulator approved information at any time. The quality of the software and the extended testing it undergoes (eg: BMM), sets the VSS in a different "class" to other display solutions.
The AGS Video Sub System has been thoroughly tested and certified by the independent testing agency, BMM International Pty. Ltd. ( Established in 1981, BMM is an Accredited Testing Facility (ATF), under the Australian scheme for accreditation of independent testing facilities for gaming and wagering systems.
AGS' retail display software ( as early as 1998 for use in the Clubs of the Australian Capital Territory. The VSS was then licenced to NSW Club Keno outlets, Tattersalls venues in Queensland, South Australia TAB and South Australian Lotteries. The introduction of the VSS into these operations led to significant and sustained increases in operator profits.
