SHUFFLE MASTER ANNOUNCES INTRODUCTION OF NEW GAME

 MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Shuffle Master, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHFL) announced today the introduction of its new proprietary game, "Who's First?" The company envisions this to be only the first of a number of new games designed by Shuffle Master to be used in conjunction with its already existing proprietary technology.
 Shuffle Master will charge a licensing fee to casinos employing the "Who's First?" format on their existing "Pai Gow Poker" tables. The company has indicated that the overall level of acceptance of "Who's First?" has already been determined by a general sampling of pit bosses, dealers, and especially players of "Pai Gow Poker." John Breeding, chairman of Shuffle Master, Inc., has this to say: "We project that as many as 90 percent of the 'Pai Gow Poker' players will simultaneously place bets on 'Who's First?'" He added that, "Being a game within a game which has already been accepted by the casinos and players alike, gives us the advantage of being able to draw from a pool of players who are already comfortable with the pattern of play at 'Pai Gow Poker' tables."
 The company will supply each casino with a numbered overlay for each position at the "Pai Gow Poker" table. A digital random number generator will determine "Who's First?" to receive their cards. Breeding adds that "the excitement is already building; we applied to the Nevada Gaming Control Board on Dec. 15, 1992, and we are expecting that the game will be licensed before the end of January of this year. A United States patent was applied for in early December." Shuffle Master expects almost universal casino acceptance of its new game wherever "Pai Gow Poker" tables are employed.
 Shuffle Master, Inc., develops and markets automatic card shuffling systems for use in casinos, card rooms and other gaming operations, including cruise ships. The company's automatic card shuffling systems (the "Shuffle Master Systems") are marketed under the name "Shuffle Master(TM)."
 Shuffle Master, Inc. trades on the NASDAQ under the symbol SHFL.
