AGS to Acquire Colossal Gaming

AGS will acquire Colossal Gaming, the company founded by industry pioneer Steve Weiss, which produces giant slot machines like Hot at the Top and Colossal Diamonds.

Las Vegas-based slot manufacturer American Gaming Systems announced that it is acquiring Colossal Gaming, a pioneer in large-format slot gaming and the designer and manufacturer of the top performing games Hot at the Top and Colossal Diamonds.

Colossal Gaming was founded in 2003 by industry veterans Steve Weiss, Alison Stroh and Lowell Hansen, as a game design studio with the mission to bring new and unique game play to the industry.

“We are excited to take this next step in our successful relationship with Colossal Gaming,” said Andrew Burke, senior director or product management for AGS. “Colossal has proven to be a talented team of designers and developers that are committed to an alternative way of thinking as a path to winning. The team and the technology coupled with the vision and leadership of Steve Weiss has yielded excellent results that will only improve upon integration and the combination of our two companies.”

“This is an ideal partnership,” said Weiss, co-founder and CEO of Colossal. “Each of our companies is better off when combined as one. The aggressive growth cycle of AGS is very attractive to our developers, and I along with the team relish the opportunity to introduce our games to a larger audience.”
