Global Gaming Expo Asia sold out

2 April 2007

MACAO, China –- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The organizers of Global Gaming
Expo Asia (G2E Asia) today announced a sold-out show floor and an 80
percent increase in exhibitor participation for the inaugural event over
last year's Asian Gaming Expo, which the G2E brand acquired in June 2006.
The inaugural G2E Asia will showcase some of the world's leading gaming
manufacturers such as Aristocrat Technologies, Bally Technologies, Konami
Australia, IGT Asia, Stargames, a Shuffle Master International Company,
Elixir Group and others. G2E Asia 2007 will be held June 13-14 at Macau
Tower Convention & Entertainment Centre in Macau SAR, People's Republic of
China.

Participation in G2E Asia 2007 by gaming suppliers and manufacturers
from all over the world confirms both the important business opportunities
arising in the growing Asian gaming markets and the premier caliber of our
G2E family of events," said Frank Fahrenkopf, president and CEO of the
American Gaming Association (AGA), one of the organizers of G2E Asia.

"The
tremendous interest in G2E Asia from gaming manufacturers illustrates that
proactive participation in the Asian markets is increasingly becoming a
business imperative. We're very excited to have this kind of response in
our first year, and we're looking forward to a tremendous week in Macau."

Surpassing the Las Vegas Strip as the world's top grossing gaming
jurisdiction in 2006, Macau continues to enjoy an unprecedented boom with
heavy investment in gaming. According to the Statistics and Census Bureau
of Macau SAR, foreign direct investment to Macau in gaming, cultural,
recreational and other services totaled US3.3 billion in 2005, up 40
percent from 2004.

As the hub of the explosive growth of the gaming industry in Asia,
Macau provides an ideal setting for the inaugural G2E Asia, which will
create a unique business forum in which global gaming equipment suppliers
and service providers will be able to showcase their latest products,
technologies and solutions in front of key decision-makers from leading
casino operating companies.

"Bally Technologies is proud to support the inaugural G2E Asia. We
certainly recognize the growth that is taking place in the Asian gaming
markets and want to ensure that we capitalize on all of the opportunities
available there, both now and in the future," said Marcus Prater, senior
vice president of marketing for Bally Technologies. "Along with our own
Bally initiatives, another way for us to take advantage of growth in Asia
is by participating in G2E Asia. We know G2E's reputation for delivering a
quality product, and it is clear looking ahead that the show will continue
to expand as Macau and other Asian markets play an increasingly important
role in shaping gaming's global landscape."

In addition, G2E Asia will incorporate world-class educational content,
enabling gaming industry professionals to explore the critical issues
facing the Australasian gaming markets. Conference sessions at G2E Asia
will feature industry experts offering in-depth analyses of the current
state of the Australasian gaming markets, Macau's current and future
potential, the important legal and regulatory challenges facing companies
in the Asian markets and an examination of operating models from different
jurisdictions. Additional sessions will explore how technological
innovations are fundamentally changing both table games and slot machines.

G2E Asia attendees also will have the opportunity to participate in
exclusive, behind-the-scenes property tours at Wynn Macau and the Venetian
Macau. The tours will allow attendees to gain an insider look at these two
premier casino resort properties.

G2E Asia is jointly organized by the American Gaming Association and
Reed Exhibitions as part of the G2E portfolio of events.
