 FOXWOODS, THE MASHANTUCKET PEQUOT INDIANS' CASINO IN CONNECTICUT,
 INSTALLS FIRST LAS VEGAS STYLE KENO SYSTEM ON THE EAST COAST
 BILLERICA, Mass., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Gamma International, Ltd. (NASDAQ: GAMM) announced today that the Foxwoods High Stakes Bingo and Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Indian tribe has installed Gamma's MegaPick(TM) Keno system. The system has the capability of handling over $1 million a week in gross gaming revenues and is as large as any system installed in the United States.
 Keno was opened to the public at the casino on Labor Day and is offered 24 hours a day. Foxwoods will offer "regular" and "high roller" payouts in their keno game in order to appeal to both novice and expert players. The "Pequot Progressive Payout" will feature a minimum jackpot of $30,000 on a $2 wager.
 It is available in the "Keno Lounge" and at many locations throughout the casino. The keno games -- in which 20 numbered keno balls are randomly selected from a pool of 80 numbered balls -- are called about every 10 minutes.
 The Keno system is the first Gamma has sold to an Indian tribal gaming hall. It is similar to the system Gamma installed for Big Red Keno in Omaha, Neb. Big Red Keno, which currently has two main halls and 16 satellite locations, is operated under a franchise granted by the city of Omaha.
 In announcing the installation, Robert K. Stern, Gamma's chairman, said, "Foxwoods has been phenomenally successful since opening in February. We believe that Foxwoods' choice of Gamma to install the casino's first new game is an endorsement of our expertise in providing exciting high tech gaming systems."
 Gamma International, Ltd. produces and distributes innovative electronic keno, bingo, video poker terminals and other video gaming systems. It produces the nation's largest, high-stakes bingo games which are played simultaneously via Gamma's proprietary satellite network in independently operated bingo halls, primarily on Indian lands, and charity gaming halls located in 15 states and the District of Columbia.
 Gamma International, Ltd. common shares, warrants and units are traded on NASDAQ under the symbols GAMM, GAMMW, and GAMMU.
