Entertainment Gaming Asia Announces Plans To Develop And Operate A New Casino Project In The Pailin Province Of Cambodia Near The Thailand Border

Stocks in this article: EGT

Entertainment Gaming Asia Inc. (NYSE Amex: EGT) (“Entertainment Gaming Asia” or “the Company”), a leading provider of electronic gaming machines on a participation basis to the Pan-Asian gaming industry, today announced it entered into a new casino development project in the Pailin province of northwestern Cambodia near the Thailand border (the “Pailin Project”). This casino project represents a strategic step in the Company’s growth plans to become the leading owner and operator of regional casinos in emerging gaming markets in Asia’s Indo-China region.

The Pailin Project will be owned by a joint venture company (the “JVC”) incorporated in Cambodia for the sole purpose of operating the casino. The shareholders of the JVC are Entertainment Gaming Asia and a local partner, which respectively hold 67% and 33% interest in the JVC but will share 55% and 45%, respectively of the profits generated from the operations.

The initial phase of the Pailin Project will consist of a casino operated under the Company’s “Dreamworld” brand with an estimated 23 table games and 40 electronic gaming machine seats. The initial phase is expected to open in the second quarter of 2012, subject to the timely issuance of the required gaming license and construction permits.

The initial phase of the casino will be constructed on land owned by the local partner and will be approximately 15,000 square feet (1,420 square meters) in size. The local partner also owns the adjacent land, which the JVC could potentially use at a future date in order for it to develop additional phases of the Pailin Project. Such additional phases are intended to include expanded casino operations and complementary facilities such as hotel rooms, a spa and other entertainment amenities and could expand the footprint of the project to over 170,000 square feet (approximately 16,000 square meters).

Dreamworld Casino Pailin will be one of five existing casinos in the area and the closest to the immigration border checkpoint. Located on a growing trade route with solid infrastructure between Cambodia and Thailand (approximately four hours from Phnom Penh and three hours from Bangkok by car), the casino will cater to mass market and premium players from the major nearby cities in the region.
