Aristocrat executes PokerTek contract in Bulgaria

20 June 2008

MATTHEWS, North Carolina -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- PokerTek, Inc., the industry pioneer and worldwide leader in automated poker tables and related software, announced today that its global distribution partner, Aristocrat Technologies Europe Limited, has executed a series of contracts for PokerPro® tables in Bulgaria. The contracts cover 23 tables that are currently installed and several more that are planned for installation in the coming months.

Tim Klok, Aristocrat's European Manager of Multi-Station Gaming, commented, "Put simply, our success in Bulgaria so far this year has resulted from close work with the major operators. Following product approval, the initial tables installed generated incremental income in the venues, and the poker market in Bulgaria is no different to that in the rest of the world: extremely buoyant. We hope to emulate our success in Bulgaria in the second half of the year right across Europe."

One of the Bulgarian operators installing PokerPro tables is Bulgame (part of Casino Solutions Ltd.) at their Casino Caesars and Casino Buddha venues. "Our staff and customers are charmed by PokerPro," noted Bulgame General Manager, Vasil Nikolov, "More and more customers are using PokerPro and Caesars is one of the first casinos in Bulgaria that provides its customers with this wonderful game on the best electronic poker table of the world."

Another operator rolling PokerPro tables into its property is Bar Game Ltd., one of the biggest casino operators in Bulgaria, with 15 years of experience in the gaming business. The company runs two of the most popular casino chains in Bulgaria, Eldorado Casino and Palms Casino, and more than 40 other casino clubs across the country.

"Bar Game installed PokerPro at the Eldorado Casino Club and in the newly opened casino Palms-Pavlovo in Sofia," commented Elena Shaterova, Marketing & Purchasing Manager at Bar Game JSC. "Soon PokerPro tables will also be installed in Stara Zagora, Pleven, Rousse, Bourgas and Varna because Bar Game is sure that this product will enrich the game mix in the casino clubs and will bring a fresh, new experience to the players."

Further Bulgarian operators undertaking PokerPro table installations include Gameprom Ltd. and Balkanfon.

"The level of interest in PokerPro in Bulgaria has been phenomenal and Aristocrat has done a great job in securing premier customers there," said Chris Halligan, PokerTek's CEO. "The tables that have been installed so far there are doing extremely well and we are looking forward to continuing this trend by introducing the fun and benefits of PokerPro across Europe in the coming months."
