DEQ Obtains Patent in the Philippines

LEVIS, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 13, 2008) - DEQ Systems Corp. (TSX VENTURE:DEQ) announced today that the Philippines Bureau of Patents has granted a patent for DEQ's invention entitled "Method and system for controlling and managing bets in a gaming environment".

This patent covers a method and system for playing live casino games remotely. For example, players standing in front of a fully occupied baccarat table wishing to participate in the game, can now do so using a remote console to place wagers on the games and even for upcoming games that would be protected by this patent. Another important feature of this approved patent is the ability to pre-program the device to automatically place wagers on a series of rounds on a game like baccarat with financial parameters such as win /loss limits or specific statistical parameters. This takes away the current physical limit of number of players per table. As well, players can even place their bets after the live game started for the upcoming game, which is not currently possible in a traditional table game setting.

"Live games are no longer limited to the number of seats at the table thus any table game such as baccarat tables can now be played by an infinite number of players," said Marco Estrela, DEQ's Chief Marketing Officer. "The patent strategy in the Pacific Rim countries follows the emerging gaming markets and the features covered in this remote betting patent aims to capitalize on the emerging trends."
