INNOVATIVE GAMING CORPORATION OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES APPROVAL OF LIVE VIDEO CRAPS IN MINNESOTA

 PLYMOUTH, Minn., June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative Gaming Corporation (NASDAQ: IGCA) of America today announced that its newly developed Live Video Craps gaming machine has been approved for installation in Indian gaming casinos located in Minnesota. The Live Video Craps machine was tested and approved by Gaming Laboratories International Incorporated, an independent testing agency employed by the State of Minnesota to ensure that video gaming machines operate within certain stated perimeters and with certain safeguards. Sale of the machine to Indian tribes remains subject to obtaining tribal licenses. Brad Olah, chief executive officer of the company, stated: "We intend to immediately install one Live Video Craps machine in Grand Casino Hinckley, and will commence marketing efforts to sell the Live Video Craps machine throughout Minnesota." He further noted that "Live Video Craps, which is a six-player video gaming machine that simulates the table game of craps, is believed to be the first of its type in the world." The company is continuing efforts to become licensed in more jurisdictions and upon obtaining such licenses will seek approval to sell both the Live Video Craps machine and its Live Video Blackjack machine in such jurisdictions.
 The company also announced today that it acquired certain patent rights relating to its Live Video Blackjack machine from a Nevada corporation for an aggregate purchase price of $500,000. Olah stated: "The acquisition of these patent rights will allow us to forego further royalty payments of $2,500 per machine and gives us additional rights relating to the distribution of Live Video Blackjack."
