Pechanga Installs EZ Baccarat™ Table Games with DEQ's EZTRAK™ Baccarat Tracking System

LEVIS, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 28, 2008) - DEQ Systems Corp. (TSX VENTURE:DEQ) announced today that the Pechanga Resort and Casino, located in Temecula, California, has leased five EZ Baccarat™ tables to replace five standard commission baccarat games. The tables are also equipped with DEQ's EZTRAK™ display system. The EZTRAK™ is an LCD based baccarat hand tracking system which tracks statistical game play trends and side wager bets.

"Baccarat players are thrilled to get a chance to play the no commission version of Baccarat, which eliminates the hassle of having to calculate and collect the commission," said Steve Miller, director of table games at Pechanga. "It's a perfect situation. Players enjoy the game because it plays twice as fast as commission baccarat and the casino is also pleased because of the higher hands per hour rate."

"California Casinos are catching on to this more effective way of playing baccarat", said Earle G. Hall, DEQ's President and CEO. "After Barona's installation of six (6) EZ Baccarat™ Games equipped with EZTRAK™, Pechanga has followed suit and added such features as 42 inch screens to follow game play with the EZTRAK™. The EZ Baccarat™ experience for the players and the casinos is proving to be both enjoyable and profitable."


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.
