    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Jan. 24 /CNW/ -- Century Casinos, Inc. (Nasdaq:  
CNTY; VSE) announced that the introduction of non-stop, 24-hour poker, open
daily, at the Century Casino & Hotel in Edmonton, Canada, which started at the
beginning of Q4 2007, is continuing to contribute positively to the increased
revenue and visitation of the casino. In order to help meet strong customer
demand, Century Casino Edmonton is adding three more poker tables in Q1 of
2008, bringing the number of poker tables to a total of nine.
