Pechanga Converts Over 60% of Their Baccarat Tables to DEQ’s EZ Baccarat

LEVIS, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - DEQ Systems Corp. (TSX VENTURE:DEQ) announced today that the Pechanga Resort and Casino, located in Temecula, California, has leased six (6) more EZ Baccarat™ bringing their total number of games using the EZ Baccarat™ methodology to eleven. The new order was made within 30 days of the first conversion of five EZ Baccarat™ in January. When they are installed, over 60% of Pechanga's total Baccarat game offering will be using the EZ Baccarat™ methodology. Pechanga has also leased DEQ's EZTRAK™ display systems. The EZTRAK™ display is an LCD based Baccarat hand tracking system which tracks statistical game play trends and side wager bets.

Steve Miller, Senior Casino Shift Manager at Pechanga Resort and Casino noted that the new EZ Baccarat™ order is attributed to the overwhelming popularity and response by the players not to mention the performance of the method itself. Since converting the first five games in January, we have seen that our customers clearly prefer the EZ Baccarat™ method. With this version there has been a noticeable increase in the number of hands and players love the Dragon 7™ bet, he added.

The Pechanga Resort and Casino is a perfect example of the increase in efficiency created by the EZ Baccarat™ method said Earle G. Hall, DEQ's President and CEO. EZ Baccarat™ is simpler, faster and an overall better playing experience for players and dealers as well as floor and surveillance personnel.


EZ Baccarat™ makes the commission disappear without changing the nature and spirit of this very successful table game. It only replaces the taking of the 5% commission on every winning bank hand by barring one specific winning bank hand: a three card total of seven called the 'Dragon 7™'. Players can make an insurance bet, called the 'Dragon 7™' bet that pays 40 to 1 when the three card winning bank hand occurs. EZ Baccarat™ and the 'Dragon 7™' bet are promoted in partnership with Robin Powell and TJ Tejeda of the Talisman Group in Las Vegas.
