Epic Gaming Has Been Selected as the New Name for Ellis Gaming.

LAS VEGAS -- Ellis Gaming, a Las Vegas-based gaming management and development company, has announced that the company has changed its name to Epic Gaming, effective immediately.

"Our management team believes that the new name better represents the unity and vision expressed in our mission statement," said Rick Richards, chief operating officer of Epic Gaming. "Despite the strong relationships built under the Ellis Gaming name, Epic Gaming better describes our long-term commitment to the gaming industry."

Epic Gaming currently has two management contracts in place for the Kickapoo Casino near Oklahoma City and the Sho-ka-wah Casino, north of San Francisco. The company is waiting for approval from the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC), the U.S. agency responsible for the regulation of Indian Gaming, to begin managing the Elk Valley Casino in Crescent City, Calif. Epic Gaming has recently sold its interest in a tribal casino that it developed several years ago near Winnipeg, Manitoba, in Canada. Additionally, the company has played a significant role in the development of a major casino in central Europe.

"Our intent is to present the company as being very serious about its business, but when the covers are pulled back, you'll find a team that likes to have fun doing its job," said Greg Yochum, chief financial officer of Epic Gaming. "We are also proud that all of our projects are turning a healthy profit for the tribes and our company. The common thread in our projects is high-margin returns."

Richards stressed that the company's name is changing, but the way it does business is not.

"Epic Gaming remains committed to its clients and strategic partners in the proper execution of the company's mission," said Richards. "This business is about relationships, integrity and paying attention to the fundamentals."
