DEQ launches Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive

LEVIS, QC, Nov 12, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- DEQ Systems Corp. ("DEQ" or the "Company") (TSXV: DEQ), a leading provider of table game bonusing, jackpot and loyalty solutions, announces the release of Bad Beat Blackjack® Progressive and the success of the two month trial test of 11 games at Barona Resort and Casino in California. Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive is an optional electronic side wager for blackjack. The side bet pays if the player gets a 20 and is beaten by a dealer 21. The more cards the dealer draws to beat the player's hands, the higher the payout. A Seven Card Dealer 21 pays the progressive jackpot.

"This is the first blackjack progressive side bet that turns the concept of insurance into a very opportunistic wager for the player" stated Max Rubin. The Bad Beat Blackjack bet takes the most agonizing part of blackjack and turns it into a winning situation for the player. As well, DEQ's G3™ technology is simply a high performance delivery system for progressive betting and Bad Beat Black Progressive will do that much better because of the multiple credits, the automatic rebetting and the linking of the tables. Bad Beat Blackjack is the first progressive side bet I have seen in the market that has the legs to make it and the G3 will simply increase its chances." "Our players love that the Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive offers them more ways to 'win." said Mike Patterson, vice president table games at Barona. "We've already had a major jackpot winner who won more than $50,000 on a 'bad' hand. This is just one more way we are able to tap the latest technology and creating more winning moments for our players at Barona. " "We have done countless hours of research, focus groups and testing on many blackjack concepts over the past five years" stated Earle G. Hall, President & CEO of DEQ. "Many companies have experimented and improvised progressive blackjack concepts and all have failed. Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive is quite different than all the others as it follows the same conceptual success that other great titles such as Caribbean Stud, Three Card Poker and EZ Baccarat have done; that is to mirror the base game with a side bet that inherently is part of the game."
