Casino Gaming, Galaxy Gaming sign deal

11 December 2006

LAS VEGAS, Nevada –- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Casino Gaming, L.L.C. has entered into an agreement with Galaxy Gaming, L.L.C. under which Galaxy Gaming will have exclusive distribution rights for Casino Surrender.

Casino Surrender is a blackjack enhancement that allows players the option of immediately winning when they receive their first two cards equaling the value of 20. The dealer must have a 10-value card showing and not have blackjack. At that point the player simply notifies the dealer they would like the Automatic Win(TM), and the player keeps their original wager, and wins 50% of their initial wager. For the players that take the Automatic Win(TM), the outcome of the dealer's hand does not matter.

Casino Surrender debuted in Las Vegas in 2005 at the legendary Stardust Hotel & Casino. Since its introduction to gaming tables, Casino Surrender has rapidly grown in popularity and is now being offered in several Nevada casinos as well as other gaming jurisdictions. In October 2006, Casino Gaming signed a national agreement with Harrah's Entertainment, the world's largest provider of casino entertainment, for the placement of Casino Surrender in their casinos.

"After we signed the national agreement with Harrah's and evaluated the high levels of interest from other casinos, we quickly realized we needed a company well established and respected in the distribution of casino games," said Frank Mugnolo, president of Casino Gaming. "The Galaxy industry veterans completely understand casino operations, primarily table games, and they know the importance of maximizing profits," said Mugnolo.

"We quickly realized Casino Surrender was an attractive and innovative enhancement for blackjack tables, but we had no idea, nor could we have predicted what an overwhelming response it received during the G2E Gaming Exhibit last month," said Bob Pietrosanto, sales manager for Galaxy Gaming. "Regardless of our high level of confidence pertaining to Casino Surrender, ultimately it's our customers, the casino operators that will determine success or failure. We received verbal commitments for over 550 placements.

In my 23 years in the business I have never experienced such immediate positive feedback from my customer base regarding any product," said Pietrosanto. "At this point, our sales team has become order takers for Casino Surrender, and my only concern now is getting this product to our customers in a timely fashion, but it's the type of problem I like," he added.

Casino Gaming, L.L.C., the owners of Casino Surrender is operated under the direction of President Frank Mugnolo. Casino Gaming is based in Chicago, Illinois and researched and developed Casino Surrender. Galaxy Gaming L.L.C., headquartered in Las Vegas, is an industry leader in the development and distribution of proprietary casino table games. Galaxy Gaming is located at 6980 O'Bannon Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89117.
