Chartwell Product Release: Industry's Most Comprehensive of the Year

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2010) - Chartwell Technology Inc. ("Chartwell" or the "Company") (TSX:CWH), a leading provider of games, gaming systems and platform for the regulated online and remote gaming industry announces the launch of its Q2 product release, making this one of the most comprehensive releases in the industry for 2010.

Chartwell's renewed focus on its casino product is bearing fruit as the Company launches the broadest mix of products and features the online casino industry has seen this year. Available for Chartwell clients in April, the new release includes an impressive list of nine new games including five slots, one branded table game, linked progressives, a local progressive and two multiplayer table games.

The five slot games in this release come from diverse sources, illustrating Chartwell's position of taking the best in class from the gaming world and adding it to our own proprietary development. Slot content included in this release are Chartwell's four-level mystery progressive slot "Agent Max Cash™" as well as three proven slot titles from Astra Games Limited, a member of the Novomatic Group of Companies, and a 100-line offering from Ash Gaming.

In addition are two unique progressive slot products. "Jackpotopolis™", which is a player driven take on linked progressives, offering two slot jackpots targeted at two different player segments, and an industry-first multi-currency local progressive jackpot which allows Chartwell's clients to configure their own games and jackpots including the ability to combine multiple currencies in the same jackpot.

To complete this release Chartwell has added three new table games. This includes the industry's first Flash-based multiplayer blackjack and multiplayer baccarat games, and leveraging another third party relationship to compliment our offering of table games, with "Texas Hold 'em Bonus™".

"This is not only Chartwell's largest release in terms of total number of games in two years, it is also the most comprehensive release the industry has seen this year", said Dan Phillips, Chief Executive Officer of Chartwell Games (International) Ltd. "Chartwell's focus on innovation delivered through regular quarterly software releases allows Chartwell licensees the ability to attract, retain and expand their player bases as well as drive new revenues through the introduction of new gaming product".
