EGC Reports Kansas Lottery Order
Electronic Game Card, Inc. (OTCBB: EGMI), the creator of the Electronic GameCard, notes the positive press comments on June 25th 06 regarding Kansas Lottery's re-order of its battery-powered Super 7's game and is pleased to confirm it is supplying the Electronic GameCards to Kansas Lottery through its joint venture with Scientific Games Corp. According to the reports the battery-powered "Super 7's" instant-winner game has been "flying off the shelves," with the game "approaching sellout after just five weeks of retail sales". As a result, Kansas Lottery has made a full re-order. Kansas Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten was reported as saying: "We anticipated a positive response to the game, but the sales and positive feedback from our players have gone beyond our expectations." Kansas is the second US state lottery to introduce an electronic GameCard based game using the Company's products under the joint venture with Scientific Games Corp. In June, it began statewide sale of its first 120,000 Super 7 Electronic GameCard game.
"Many lotteries have been seeking a new vehicle to allow them to push their retail price points for instant tickets above $5 or $10. The Electronic GameCard has proven to be that vehicle" says Daniel Kane, Senior Vice-President of EGC. "Examination of the player response certainly points to a solid player acceptance of both real extended play and the perceived value of the EGC product. Other lotteries can rest easier and order with confidence now that the GameCards have proven themselves in two jurisdictions."
Electronic Game Card is also pleased to confirm that it has made its first sales of electronic GameCards for use in commercial promotions to the MGM Grand Casino in Detroit and to the native American Santa Ana Star Casino north of Albuquqerque in New Mexico.
