Autotote signs Louisiana contract

22 April 2008

NEW YORK -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Scientific Games (Nasdaq: SGMS) announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Autotote Enterprises, Inc. has signed a four-year deal to supply race book venue management services to the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana for the Paragon Casino Resort in Marksville, Louisiana. The Paragon Casino Resort has more than 2,000 slot machines, 46 table games and poker. The Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana is the owner and operator of the Central Louisiana destination resort and convention, which opened in 1994.

"We are privileged to add the Paragon Casino Resort to our growing network of North American race books. Given the strong horse racing tradition in Louisiana and neighboring areas, the addition of pari-mutuel racing to complement their broad array of gaming and entertainment venues already in place will bring added revenues and excitement for years to come," said Rick Pullman, President of Autotote Enterprises.

"Scientific Games has an excellent reputation among tribal race book operators and we are looking forward to this exciting new addition to our casino offerings," said Linda Bordelon, Vice President of Public Relations. "Clearly their successful record with the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, as well as the Ho-Chunk and Oneida Nations in Wisconsin, gives us confidence that they will do a great job supporting our race book as well."
