Central Credit signs on Macau casinos

16 October 2007

Five Macau Casinos Have Signed up to Use Services of Central Credit, a Subsidiary of Global Cash Access (GCA) Central Credit Database is Designed to Help Casinos Improve Credit-Making Decisions

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Five casinos in Macau are now customers of Central Credit, a subsidiary of Global Cash Access Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: GCA), the gaming industry's leading provider of cash access services. Central Credit offers a proprietary database of gaming patron credit history and transaction data designed to help casinos improve their own credit-making decisions.

The five Macau casinos that are currently using or gearing up to use Central Credit are:

* Sands Casino

* Venetian Macao

* Wynn Macau

* Galaxy StarWorld

* MGM Grand Macau

Said Kurt Sullivan, Executive VP, Central Credit and Check Services at GCA, "Central Credit includes the records of several million gaming patrons who live in or travel to the Asia Pacific region. The proprietary information contained in the Central Credit database helps casinos make smart credit decisions, such as whether and how much house credit to extend, and also helps in check cashing decisions. The expansion of Central Credit usage in Macau only increases the robustness of the already rich database."

A number of Macau casinos, including The Venetian Macao, are also using a full suite of cash access services offered by GCA in Macau. Those services include GCA's QuikCash kiosks that provide patrons with access to credit card cash advance and debit card withdrawal transactions; ATMs that have slot ticket redemption, bill-breaking and other casino-specific functions; and GCA's QuikCashPlus Web browser, which helps casino cashiers streamline transactions and improve customer service. Earlier this year, GCA opened a full-time office and product demonstration facility in Macau.
