AUSTIN, Texas & LAS VEGAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 22, 2014 — Multimedia Games Holding Company, Inc. (Nasdaq: MGAM) (“Multimedia Games” or the “Company”) will bring its largest-ever, and most diverse display of new products, including 100 unique new games and three larger-than-life new cabinet designs, to the 14th annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E®) at the Sands Expo & Convention Center (Booth #1165) in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 30-October 2, 2014. In addition to the highly anticipated debut of the fully-integrated Platinum MPX™ and The Texan HDX™ which takes the Company’s highly differentiated video gaming content to a whole new level at G2E 2014, Multimedia Games will also host the championship round of its unique 2014 National TournEvent of Champions® which will conclude on Wednesday night (October 1) at XS Nightclub at Wynn/Encore Las Vegas with players competing for a share of $500,000 in cash prizes.
“Our G2E 2014 product line-up will showcase the creative spirit of the entire Austin-based Multimedia Games team while clearly highlighting our ability to deliver our brand of differentiated gaming entertainment to our customers,” said Patrick Ramsey, Chief Executive Officer of Multimedia Games. “We are excited to show customers our most extensive lineup of new products, including 100 unique games, three new cabinet platforms and further updates to our award-winning TournEvent® slot tournament product. In particular, our new cabinets are set to grab players’ attention, bringing an all-new Multimedia Games entertainment experience to casino slot floors. The Platinum MPX is now making its initial debut on casino floors, and at G2E we will roll out exciting new game themes for this immersive gaming cabinet, including Dracula™, which we believe highlights the supreme talent and unique imagination of our design teams. The Texan HDX, our new unique for-sale or premium participation cabinet, is an eight-foot tall cabinet straight out of the heart of Texas, which we expect will take our growing library of video content to the next level thanks to its twin 42-inch widescreen LCD panels and two-person bench seating. And, our Skyline™ series of games elevates the mechanical reel gaming experience by marrying classic slot game styling with interactive lighting and an eye-catching top box.
“Importantly, we are bringing to the Sands Convention & Expo Center a suite of new products that will almost immediately be available to generate returns for our customers’ businesses. The first games on the Skyline and Platinum MPX platforms are appearing on slot floors today while The Texan HDX is expected to launch within the next quarter. In addition, 33 of the 100 new titles on display at G2E 2014 will be available in the next six months, as we have successfully ramped up our ability to create and commercialize new titles. We believe that current and potential customers will clearly see that G2E 2014 is our biggest show ever and expect to show all attendees how to PLAY LOUDER®.”
