Entertainment Gaming Asia Announces Plans To Develop And Operate A Slot Hall In Poipet Near The Cambodia-Thailand Border

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 plans to develop and operate a slot hall as part of an existing popular casino in Poipet, Cambodia near the Thailand border (the “Poipet Project”). This project is expected to contribute to near-term earnings and deepen the Company’s footprint in this attractive gaming market within the Indo-China region.

The Poipet Project will be constructed as an extension of an existing casino owned by a local Cambodian company and will connect to the main casino’s table game floor. The slot hall will operate under the casino owner’s gaming license and will be branded using the Company’s “Dreamworld” name. It is expected to measure approximately 12,000 square feet (1,100 square meters) and house 300 electronic gaming machine seats. It will also feature entertainment and food and beverage offerings. The slot hall is expected to open in December 2012, subject to the timely issuance of the required construction permits.

Located within Cambodia’s Economic Free Zone and at the junction of an important trade route connecting Bangkok and Phnom Penh, Poipet is Cambodia’s most significant border crossing with Thailand (approximately two and one-half hours from Bangkok by car) and an established and growing gaming market. There are currently eight existing casinos in Poipet serving customers from major nearby cities in the area and there is limited real estate for future gaming development. The Poipet Project will be located in a very prominent location and will cater to mass market and premium players.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Company will fund the development, construction and operation of the slot hall. The Company and casino owner will share the daily net win generated by the gaming machines in the Company’s slot hall and certain operating costs in the ratio of 40% and 60%, respectively. The initial project term is five years beginning from the commercial launch of the slot hall. During this initial five-year period, the Company will have exclusive rights to manage and operate the slot hall. After the initial period, the Company will have an option to renew the project for an additional five years and during the renewal, the Company will continue to enjoy the exclusive rights over the management and operation of the slot hall subject to the achievement of certain financial milestones during the initial period.
