GRAND CASINOS' INTRODUCTION OF WORLD'S FIRST LIVE VIDEO CRAPS SUCCESSFUL; MORE MACHINES ADDED AT VENUES

 MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Indians, owners of Grand Casinos Mille Lacs and Hinckley (Minnesota) today announced that their newest gaming device, Live Video Craps (the first in the entire world), has been successful enough at Grand Casino Hinckley since its introduction there this summer, to warrant the addition of more machines at both Grand Casino Hinckley and Grand Casino Mille Lacs. Grand Casino Hinckley now houses four machines, an addition of three, and Grand Casino is introducing the game to its guests with two machines.
 The game ensures that bettors never "crap out" on the first roll of all the dice, thus the nickname for the game is "never-ever" craps. Betting limits range from $1 to $99. No cash payouts are issued from the machine. Instead, the machine issues winners a printed ticket redeemable for cash at the casino cage for the amount of the bettor's win. The machine accepts $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills for play.
 The gaming units are manufactured in Plymouth, Minn., by Innovative Gaming Corporation of America, and allow six players at one time to play the video version of "live" craps. D. Bradly Olah, president and CEO of Innovative Gaming, said, "People seem to be absolutely mesmerized just watching the electronic dice 'roll' onto the playing field. It's a delightful video version of a live craps table, and we're happy people are enjoying their experiences with it."
