Wynn Macu, Gaming Partners Sign Deal

11 May 2006

LAS VEGAS – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Gaming Partners International Corporation (Nasdaq: GPIC) has signed a contract with Wynn Macau for the supply of gaming chips and plaques. The entire order, consisting of the Bourgogne & Grasset brand, is fitted with 13.56 MHz RFID microchips. The microchips are supplied by Magellan in Australia and securely embedded inside the chips by GPI.

"This order is a testimony to GPIC leadership in terms of RFID technology supplied to the world gaming industry," says Christophe Leparoux, GPI Manager International Sales & Marketing. "We are very excited that Wynn Resorts supports us on both sides of the planet: at Wynn Las Vegas with 125 KHz RFID chips and at Wynn Macau with 13.56 MHz. Each technology has different although complementary features to cater for the specific requirements of each market.

"Manufactured by GPI's plant in France, the RFID chips are from the new hugely successful 'S2' range of hard plastic-compound, high-quality, injection-molded chips. Our S2 line offers greater possibilities in terms of edgeworks and decor while maintaining the same well-known quality at a very cost-effective price," added Leparoux. "Most important, even with the embedded microchips, the S2 chips retain the same heavy weight, feel and appearance that both dealers and players love."
