Klatzkin Advisors LLC, Spectrum Gaming Group Release Fifth Edition Gaming Atlas

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 9, 2010) - The Fifth Edition of the U.S./Southeast Asia Gaming Atlas is being released this week by veteran casino analyst Lawrence Klatzkin and Spectrum Gaming Group. The atlas has been in constant demand since its debut in 1998. While it still serves the needs of investors, it is also valued by operators, suppliers, attorneys, regulators and other industry-related professionals. The Fifth Edition, unlike its predecessors, is available in a convenient PDF format.

The atlas is available for purchase online for $125 (http://eventcallregistration.com/reg/index.jsp?cid=100t11), and is available as a premium gift to new and renewing subscribers to Michael Pollock's Gaming Industry Observer, an award-winning publication now entering its 16th year. GIO is the flagship publication of Spectrum Gaming Group.

In the introduction to the Fifth Edition, Klatzkin writes: "The key to success in the gaming industry is location. With the proliferation of gaming throughout the United States, it is difficult for investors to visit many of the markets where gaming is permitted, thus putting them at a disadvantage because they lack sufficient information about relative locations within each market."

Klatzkin, long regarded as the dean of gaming analysts, is President of Klatzkin Advisors LLC and is Managing Director at Chapdelaine Credit Partners, a Division of Chapdelaine & Co.

"Gaming Industry Observer will be rolling out a number of initiatives in 2011," said Editor Dave Berns, a veteran journalist based in Las Vegas. "In addition to the Gaming Atlas, our subscribers will enjoy a growing host of benefits. Our GIO2 service is being enhanced, with more data and more reports. And we will soon unveil GIO3, which will provide analysts and others with highly robust web-based data and reports that can help them make better, quicker and more-informed decisions."
