Atronics WAP Links Start New Year with Winners

7 January 2005

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Atronic Americas' Wide Area Progressive links continue to produce happy winners and success for casinos in the dawn of 2005. The most recent Michigan Magic (R) jackpot win of $56,393.32 at Soaring Eagle Casino created the 37th MAGIC winner and over four million dollars of awards to date.

For the latest Michigan Magic (R) jackpot winner playing the Xanadu Magic(TM) game with a twenty-dollar investment proved to be a solid bet. The $56,393.32 award, which she won on December 30th during the Asian-themed game's Magic Bonus feature, will be used to pay off some unwanted bills. Just weeks before a $128,319.18 Magic Jackpot brightened another Soaring Eagle player's holiday season.

It's been a short road to success for Atronic Americas' WAPs. Atronic's MAGIC WAPs have paid 37 winners four million dollars since the launch in Arizona at the end of 2002.

"The WAP market segment is notoriously difficult, so we are especially proud of the success we have created with our WAP business unit", said Joe Bailo, CEO of Atronic Americas. "Casino operators recognize the MAGIC to be the most frequent hitting WAP in the industry, providing thrills on tribal casino floors nationwide and creating unforgettable, life altering experiences for their players. Innovative new products such as the recently launched Penny Parade (R) WAP will continue to drive Atronic's success in this area."

Atronic's MAGIC WAPs are distinguished by their multilevel awards, comprised of the national Magic Jackpot, starting at $100,000 and the statewide Jackpot, starting at $50,000. The nickel and penny links additionally feature exciting Towerline(TM) games such as Spirit Magic (TM), Xanadu Magic(TM), Sphinx Magic (TM) and Cool Catch(TM). Players can find the Magic in casinos throughout Michigan, Arizona, California, New Mexico and Wisconsin.
