Caribbean Casino and Gaming Corp. CEO Negotiating for Better Terms on Horse Track

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) - Caribbean Casino and Gaming Corp. (PINKSHEETS: CGAQ), because of a series of events that have taken place in the past two weeks, which have caused some controversy; CEO Steven Swank has made arrangements to renegotiate the terms on the final contract involving the Hipodromo V Centenario. At the moment heavy pressure has been leveled on the horse track officials from the press because of all the problems, including the death of a jockey, which was a product of inadequate maintenance of the track and the absence of emergency health units at the facility. Horse owners association, members of the press, and other groups of interest have expressed their discontent with current operations. All this has brought new tools of negotiation for the company to its benefit.

Mr. Steven Swank CEO stated, "All these events have lead to the death of a jockey because, there wasn't an adequate medical presence during the race. The track needs to be better operated, and we have the tools to make it work." Mr. Swank also stated, "We have met with the horse owners association president, and we are up to date on what the horse track needs to run efficiently, we will bring a huge benefit to the horse racing community in the Dominican Republic."

National Media in the Dominican Republic has been very active on this subject for the past two weeks; please review the following articles that have been published. (Information on the website will allow you to translate to English).

The outside decorations are very striking, causing many of the people that pass by to stop and ask when it's going to be open. The variety of games will ensure that users will have a great time at the parlor and will return and recommend it to friends and family.
