Cash Systems, Fantasy Springs renew contract

27 June 2007

AS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Cash Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CKNN), a provider of cash access technology for the gaming industry, today announced another multi year contract for powercash with the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. powercash is the first product of the Company's joint venture with Bally Technologies and Scotch Twist.

This latest agreement for powercash represents an estimated value of over $1,000,000 to the Company before transaction fees.

powercash includes patented technology that will change the way casino players access their funds on the casino floor. Once patrons have enrolled in the casino player's club program with the Company's cashclub functionality they will be able to access funds from their desired credit, debit or checking accounts while sitting at the gaming device. Players will be able to request funds from the designated financial account, transfer those funds into their player's club account and then transfer down to the gaming device the amount of money that they want to use. Casino patrons will no longer have to worry about bringing cash to the casino with powercash.

powercash is the next evolution for the gaming floor. By reducing the dependency on cash and tickets, the gaming floor becomes even more dynamic for the casino patron. Moving from game to game is easier and faster by only having to use their casino player's club card to access their funds. Safe and secure since any funds that are left on the gaming device are automatically transferred back to the player's account simply by removing their casino player's club card.

Additionally, powercash is the first product that has the ability to touch every aspect of the casino resort facilities through the Company's suite of products such as tablecash and play-n-shop. Patrons can use their player's club card to make purchases in the retail shops, restaurants, spa, hotel, golf and any of the entertainment facilities offered by a casino resort property.

"powercash is the first cash access technology that allows a truly cashless casino floor. The Fantasy Springs Resort Casino contract represents a major milestone in our technology development and we are very happy the management team at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino saw the unique value proposition of implementing powercash on the gaming floor," said Michael Rumbolz, CEO of Cash Systems.

Mr. Rumbolz further states, "With the additional benefits of the ability to use the players club card throughout the casino resort property, the players club card becomes the one card solution that gaming properties have been looking for."

"We look forward to implementing powercash in our casino. We want to offer our customers the most complete gaming experience and the powercash technology with all of its benefits, including its Responsible Gaming features, will take that experience to another level.
