“TournEvent®, our award-winning slot tournament system, represented approximately 46% of our total units sold in the quarter and as of December 31, 2012, is installed at 137 casinos nationwide. When in tournament mode, this proprietary product instantly creates an engaging atmosphere, creating a buzz that frequently results in higher slot floor traffic and increased floor-wide revenue performance for our customers. We are further leveraging this product’s success with a first-of-its-kind nationwide TournEvent of Champions® promotional event that will culminate with a national final in Las Vegas in September.
“Gaming operations remains a key driver of our overall business and represents a stable and growing foundation for our long-term growth. During the fiscal 2013 first quarter, our installed base of participation games eclipsed 11,000 units as we grew the number of our High Rise Games® by nearly 61% and further diversified our installed base with over 75% of our unit growth coming from markets outside of Oklahoma. Over the last two quarters we have added over 1,000 recurring revenue units to our domestic installed base which helped drive the fiscal 2013 first quarter gaming operations revenues to our highest levels since the September 2008 quarter.”
Ramsey concluded, “We are excited by the progress made to date in fiscal 2013. Our games are clearly resonating with players as evidenced by their enhanced performance in a highly competitive marketplace, while customer demand in both existing and new markets continues to grow. We currently address approximately 45% of the domestic slot market and expect to begin serving the Nevada market in the second half of fiscal 2013, which will expand our total addressable market to approximately 65%. Additionally, assuming receipt of all regulatory approvals, we expect to begin serving New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Illinois within the next 24 months. We believe our entry into these markets combined with our established momentum in unit sales and installed base growth provides a foundation for continued growth.”
