The Agreement also calls for DEQ and Station to expend additional financial and human resources to jointly develop and obtain regulatory approval of certain new technology. The Agreement also includes an option for Station to extend the term for an additional five (5) years, which would provide DEQ with additional royalty payments.

Bill Warner, Chief Operating Officer of Station Casinos, stated "We are looking forward to working with DEQ to leverage its patent portfolio in developing table game bonusing concepts which will provide additional gaming entertainment value to our customers." "We like DEQ's vision for gaming entertainment, its intellectual property, and its approach. We feel that it's a very good strategic fit for our company," Warner added.

Hall, President and Chief Executive Officer of DEQ stated: "Station Casinos has a proven business model in one of the most competitive casino markets in the World, the Las Vegas locals' gaming market. To attract, entertain and retain its customers, Station has excelled in offering value to very discriminating customers. DEQ is pleased to have been chosen as Station Casinos' leading provider of side betting and table games bonusing technologies for table games."

Station's equity investment, as well as the first annual royalty payment, has been made upon the signature of the Agreement and closing of the placement, while the one-time licensing fee will be paid upon receipt of all necessary Nevada gaming regulatory approvals for DEQ's G3 table games bonusing system.
