EDMONTON, Sept. 20, 2016 /CNW/ - eQube Gaming Limited (TSX-V EQG) ("eQube" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the signing of a three-year agreement (the "Agreement"), effective September 8, 2016, to provide the complete electronic bingo operational and management systems for the San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino ("San Manuel") in southern California, one of the largest tribal bingo facilities in the USA.
As one of southern California's premier entertainment venues, with exclusive restaurants, a state of the art casino with 3,800 slot machines, a 1,400 seat bingo club, and live casino tables, San Manuel is a major regional facility, located just 67 miles from downtown Los Angeles.
In accordance with the Agreement, eQube will be providing San Manuel with 1,000 of its market leading rugged handheld gaming tablets, as well as a complete software suite to provide electronic bingo and associated enterprise back office reporting and customer data systems.
"We have worked very hard to develop the eQube bingo system according to the needs of our customers operations, rather than just to provide cool, advanced bingo technology," said Kent Tong, CEO of eQube. "Our system has been designed by bingo operators for bingo operators, and the selection of our system in a location as prominent as San Manuel is further validation that our industry-leading solution enhances the environment, experience and service in a modern bingo environment".
Mr. Tong went on to say "Experienced bingo operational professionals in the eQube organization have demonstrated the power of the eQube system to increase customer traffic, revenues and frequency of visits. The success of our installations has led to increased demand for the eQube system, as many operators realize our system is more than just technology and customer management - it is about empowering a bingo hall owner/operator to improve their business and its bottom line. I am extremely excited to be a provider to San Manuel."
