POYDRAS GAMING FINANCE CORP. ("Poydras" or the "company") recently announced that Integrity Gaming Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary, has successfully deployed its first Gamblit Gaming machines at the Downstream Casino Resort in Quapaw, Oklahoma. Integrity has an exclusive agreement with Gamblit to distribute its products in tribal jurisdictions in Oklahoma and Texas.
The recently installed Gamblit Model G interactive game tables are the first multiplayer skill games in the state, currently on the floor at Downstream Casino Resort, a state of the art casino with over 2,000 gaming machines. The Model G consoles feature multiple games including Gamblit Poker, a poker-based game where the players get to pick their own cards by touching a "Grab Card" button on the interactive touch screen, and Cannonbeard's Treasure, a fast-paced skill game similar to blackjack that features pirate ships firing upon one another as players race to achieve the target number.
"These consoles going live mark an important milestone in our development and position us as the leading provider of next generation gaming devices in Oklahoma and Texas," said Peter Macy, CEO of Poydras Gaming. "Gamblit's games have been designed to appeal to a wide demographic, retain existing users, attract new players, increase game play and ultimately, increase cash flow for our customers. We have multiple contracts in place to install Gamblit consoles and expect the success of this first installation will attract even more interest."
"We are very pleased to be working with Integrity as we launch in Oklahoma, which as the third largest gaming market in the U.S. presents a particularly attractive opportunity for Gamblit Gaming's lineup of interactive gaming devices," said Eric Meyerhofer, CEO of Gamblit Gaming. "Integrity is a leading player and a trusted partner in Oklahoma, and its strong and enduring relationships make them the ideal partner as we deploy additional gaming machines in the region."
Poydras also announced that Integrity has entered an agreement with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma ("Choctaw Nation") to place gaming consoles at their Choctaw Casinos & Resorts. Headquartered in Durant, Oklahoma, Choctaw Casinos & Resorts feature a variety of gaming, hotel and resort properties throughout southeastern Oklahoma. The placed machines will be comprised of games from Gamblit as well as Grand Vision Gaming, a manufacturer of Class III gaming machines. Poydras has an exclusive distribution agreement with Grand Vision Gaming and this will be the first installation in Oklahoma. Initial placement will be at Choctaw Casino & Resorts' flagship property in Durant, a AAA Four Diamond resort and entertainment destination.
"This agreement demonstrates the attractiveness of our line of exclusive machines in the gaming community, allowing us to expand and diversify our customer base," added Macy. "We are pleased to make this initial placement with a leading operator like the Choctaw Nation and look forward to increasing our relationship with them as these consoles demonstrate value."
