LEVIS, QC, Aug. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - DEQ Systems Corp. (TSXV: DEQ) announced
today that its award winning G3(TM) table game bonusing and jackpot system was
approved by the official Macau approval authority, Gaming Laboratories
International ("GLI"). The GLI approval is a mandatory technology
certification for the Macau market and a pre-requisite for commercialization.
Macau is a Chinese island near Hong Kong that has surpassed Las Vegas in
terms of number of table games and in total gaming revenues per casino.
Reputed American casino chains including the Wynn, the Venetian, Venetian
Sands and the MGM have or are currently entering the Macau market. The most
popular casino table games in Macau are Baccarat, Poker and Blackjack. The
percentage of table games per casino in the Macau market is far superior to
the USA casinos as this emerging dominating market is more oriented to table
games than other products such as slot machines. This represents an
unprecedented opportunity for table game bonusing and jackpot related
"Now that we have secured long term relationships in Las Vegas with
Harrah Entertainment and Station Casinos, our strategic focus is now Macau.
The number of table games in Macau that can benefit from our systems can be
counted in the thousands and we have developed the important business
relationships to enter this important and strategic market", stated Earle G.
Hall, President & Chief Executive Officer. "The GLI approval for
commercialization in Macau was the most important step in our plan to enter
this market with our American partners in 2008".
