TableMAX Holdings LLC, one of the world’s leading developers of electronic table games, and eBet, developer and marketer of software and systems designed to facilitate the management of slot machine networks, have signed a partnership agreement under which eBet will operate wide-area progressives on all TableMAX game content, including Progressive Blackjack, Caribbean Stud poker, Caribbean Draw poker, Texas Hold ‘Em Bonus Poker and Bonus Blackjack.
“This is very noteworthy news for TableMAX,” said TableMAX CEO Stephen Crystal. “We have a unique product that is already in high demand across the continent. Now we have a partnership that will expand our exciting progressive beyond a stand-alone game situation to a full wide-area progressive. This is a major step forward in our business plan.”
“This partnership utilizes the skills and experience of both companies to our mutual benefit,” added eBet CEO and Managing Director Tony Toohey. “I am confident that this will culminate in substantial business for TableMAX and eBet across the United States. We are very excited about working together to realize the full potential of this innovative product.”
Currently, a TableMAX game’s progressive is currently tied to one five-station game. Under the partnership, the progressive could be casino-wide, multi-property, multi-city within a state and even multi-state.
The partnership is a three-year agreement encompassing North America. The new eBet-driven WAP is expected to go live in April 2008 in Oklahoma.
