Entertainment Gaming Asia Inc. (NYSE Amex: EGT) (“Entertainment Gaming Asia” or “the Company”), formerly known as Elixir Gaming Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of electronic gaming machines on a participation basis to the Pan-Asian gaming industry, announced today that as of August 31, 2010 it had reached 670 gaming machine seats in operation at NagaWorld casino resort. This fulfills the total number of machines under the Company’s most recent Machine Operation Participation Consolidation Agreement with NagaWorld Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hong Kong listed NagaCorp Ltd. (HKSE:3918). Despite the increase in installed base, average net win per unit per day for the Company’s operations at NagaWorld continues to be strong, achieving $214 for the month of August 2010. NagaWorld is a luxury casino resort in Cambodia and is the only licensed full service casino in and around the capital city of Phnom Penh. Due to the strong performance of Entertainment Gaming Asia’s operations at NagaWorld, the Company recouped in mid-August 2010 all remaining commitment fees paid to NagaWorld. Entertainment Gaming Asia and NagaWorld will continue to share the revenue and certain operating costs, such as marketing and floor staff, at a 25% / 75% split, respectively, on the total installed base of 670 gaming machine seats. Clarence Chung, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Entertainment Gaming Asia, commented, “Our slot operations at NagaWorld, which we jointly manage and operate with NagaWorld, have experienced dramatic growth since our first placements of approximately 200 gaming machine seats in January 2009. We attribute our strong performance to our targeted marketing efforts to build customer loyalty, the right machine mix, favorable positioning on NagaWorld’s prime casino lobby floor spaces, and the benefits of the closure of all slot clubs previously operating in the Phnom Penh region early in 2009. We believe these factors along with our proactive management will enable us to drive continued improvements in our operating performance at NagaWorld.” About Entertainment Gaming Asia Inc.
