VEGAS CHIPS TO PRODUCE FAT-FREE POTATO CHIPS

 LAS VEGAS, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Vegas Chips Inc. (NASDAQ: VCHP) announced today it will manufacture what management believes to the nation's first fat-free, baked potato chips through an agreement reached this week with Fit Foods Inc. of Boston.
 Roger Nix, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of Vegas Chips, said, "Vegas Chips made a national search to find a new product that we could produce here in Nevada to increase our opportunity for profitability. We know our customers and distributors are as excited and anxious as we are to see these unique chips in the stores."
 The much-anticipated fat-free potato chip will be available in three flavors and produced by a special process in an oven designed and built by Fit Foods Inc. The oven is expected to be operational by mid-May. Marketed under the brand name Fit Foods, the new chips are projected to arrive in stores by this June.
 Vegas Chips plans to manufacture in Nevada to service the Western United States which includes California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Nevada. Vegas Chips currently produces a line of high quality kettle chips marketed under the brand name Vegas Chips and, in addition, distributes other snack foods in Las Vegas and Reno, Nev.
