DEQ Systems Corp.: Las Vegas Adopts DEQ's EZ Baccarat

LEVIS, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 10, 2009) - DEQ Systems Corp. (TSX VENTURE:DEQ) ("DEQ" or the "Company"), a leading provider of table game bonusing, jackpot and loyalty solutions, announces today that the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino is the latest casino to operate EZ Baccarat™, the company's award-winning non-commission version of baccarat equipped with EZ Trak™, an LCD-based hand tracking system.

Two EZ Baccarats and two EZ Traks have made their debut at MGM Grand after recent success at the Wynn and Harrah's Paris casino in Las Vegas. This product's success story started in early 2008 in Southern California when the Barona's Table Game Manager Mike Patterson decided to champion the product. EZ Baccarat's adoption has been quite rapid and widespread throughout the Golden State with 46 installations in nine casinos in less than a year. In the past three months alone, casinos such as the Morongo Casino Resort and Spa, Harrah's Rincon, Sycuan Resort & Casino, Red Hawk Casino and Viejas Casino have all started operating EZ Baccarat and EZ Trak. As well, EZ Baccarat has made its Canadian debut with three recent installations at Vancouver's Edgewater Casino.

DEQ reports that it has penetrated over 40% of the baccarat market in California in less than a year and has now successfully penetrated Las Vegas market with product in the Wynn, Harrah's and now MGM properties. Furthermore, market penetration has begun in Michigan and commercialization has commenced in Iowa and Indiana. Licensing focus has now shifted to other baccarat rich jurisdictions such as Connecticut, Florida and New Jersey where several casinos have already expressed interest for the products.

"We have a fantastic product combination on our hands, no doubt about it. In these tough economic times every casino is looking for accretive revenue that does not require capital investment or man power. The EZ Baccarat method provides for an increase in hands per hour and decrease in manpower needed to supervise the non commission method as opposed to the traditional alternative are some of the reasons why EZ Baccarat and EZ Trak are in such demand," stated Earle G. Hall, President and CEO of DEQ. "Las Vegas and California are no longer the only jurisdictions where those products are available. After a successful entry into Michigan and Canada, EZ Baccarat is now GLI approved in Iowa and in Indiana where casinos such as Ameristar and Harrah's are among the first to have placed orders."

ABOUT EZ BACCARAT

EZ Baccarat™ is revolutionary method of accelerating the speed of baccarat by eliminating the commission. The winning hand bank commission is replaced by "barring" one specific winning bank hand and/or reducing the banked winning wagers. The EZ Baccarat method bars a three card total of seven and is trademarked as the "Dragon 7™". Players can also make a side wager as to the occurrence of the Dragon 7™. This side wager pays 40 to 1 and creates an additional way for the player to win and a new revenue source for the casino. The EZ Baccarat™ methodology and the Dragon 7™ bet were co-created by Robin Powell and TJ Tejeda of the Talisman Group in conjunction with DEQ. These methods and trademarks are protected within the scope of DEQ's no commission baccarat intellectual property portfolio that protects all methodologies such as barred hands and reduced banked winning wagers.
