Ameranth receives patent

13 February 2008

SAN DIEGO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Ameranth, Inc. announced today that it has received an official 'Notice of Allowance' from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a major patent, which will have a term extending to March 2026, on its revolutionary, automated gaming system invention. The patent is the result of work dating to 2001 at Ameranth's QueueOS division. In addition to the patent, this work resulted in Ameranth's industry-leading QueueOS automated gaming system. The approval of this key strategic patent confirms Ameranth's leading and pioneering role in automating the modern poker room and clearly establishes Ameranth as the technology leader in virtually all automated aspects of poker rooms -- as part of Ameranth's overall 21st Century Casino(TM) vision. This new patent -- combined with Ameranth's portfolio of wireless/web data synchronization patents (applicable to wireless gaming and many other casino applications) and Ameranth's recent deployment of its new QueueOS wireless handheld applications further confirm Ameranth's innovation and leadership role for many current and emerging casino applications and deployments.

Ameranth's newest patent, titled "Products and Processes for Operations Management of Casino, Leisure and Hospitality Industry," includes claims which broadly cover a system encompassing virtually all critical operations of the modern poker room -- including player seating, public displays, tournaments, and player tracking for/from electronic and manual poker tables -- (at room or table level), as well as dealer rotation/tracking, security, wireless/internet connections and many other key aspects of the 21st Century Casino(TM) as well.

"We are honored to have been recognized by the Patent Office for the pioneering role that Marc Kessman played in inventing the critical elements of the modern poker room back in 2001 and our ongoing close collaboration with Marc (now our gaming CTO) will enable us to continue to extend his original vision, combined with ours -- well into the 21st Century," said Keith McNally, Ameranth's Chief Executive Officer.

"I was very pleased to join the Ameranth team in 2006," stated Marc D. Kessman, founder of QueueOS, LLC. "The exceptional combination of our products and vision with Ameranth's excellent reputation, technology and strong support organization -- now combined with this strategic patent will enable us to serve our customers even better for the future and to continue our leadership role."

Ameranth's industry leading automated poker systems are deployed in more than 100 casinos and poker rooms worldwide and operate in most of the largest and most prestigious establishments of the poker market.
