LEVIS, QC, Jan. 23 /CNW/ - DEQ Systems Corp. ("DEQ") (TSXV: DEQ), leading
provider of table gaming bonusing, jackpot and loyalty solutions, along with
its partner Paltronics Macau Ltd. ("Paltronics"), have announced today the
installation of eight G3(TM) enabled Baccarat Progressive tables at the
well-known StarWorld Hotel and Casino in Macau ("StarWorld"). The system was
installed by Paltronics Macau and is referred to as the "Paltronics G3(TM)
enabled One Link Table System(R)".
As part of the intellectual property licensing agreement announced on
May 15, 2007 Paltronics has licensed DEQ's G3(TM) table game bonusing patents
to incorporate DEQ's exclusive bonusing features into its One Link(R) family
of products for jackpot, media and casino management. The G3(TM) enabled One
Link Table System(R) is available for the first time in Asia's premier casino
market. StarWorld is the first flagship entertainment complex of Galaxy
Entertainment Group and operates over 260 tables.
"Being able to penetrate the world's largest and fastest growing casino
market is another milestone accomplishment for us. Following our success with
similar agreements with Harrah's and Station Casinos in Las Vegas, I believe
we are in exceptional position to set DEQ for significant future growth," said
Earle G. Hall, DEQ's President and CEO. "Macau is the biggest market for
Baccarat in the world. It is technologically mature and very receptive to
value added features such as our table game bonusing system. We are very proud
to be offering the power of our patents and features with Paltronics' system
and media capacity," concluded Hall.
"We are happy to offer an exceptional value added product such as the
G3(TM) enabled One Link Table System(R) on our Baccarat tables," stated Ciaran
Carruthers, Chief Operating Officer of StarWorld Macau. "Baccarat is the game
of choice in Macau and DEQ's cutting edge bonusing methods create that extra
incentive for the player while increasing table performance for the casino.
However, what truly sold us on the entire concept was the creation of a huge
progressive jackpot made possible by linking tables together."
Kylie Rogers, Regional Sales Manager for Paltronics Macau added:
"Paltronics is excited to be stepping into the Macau table game market with
this innovative product, which is the latest addition to the already proven
One Link System(R) Solutions family. Paltronics is once again proving its
leadership role by being the first to roll out this advanced bonusing system
to the Asian market."
The G3(TM) is a linkable bonusing, jackpot and loyalty server-based
system that brings an entire suite of bonusing and system processes to table
games, providing casinos with increased revenues and additional player
participation. The G3(TM) system has already been approved and installed in
more than 200 casinos, in over 30 countries and is protected by 10 patents.
