Xplore Teams Up With Progressive Gaming International to Offer Wireless Gaming

AUSTIN, TX, Nov. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Xplore Technologies Corp. (TSX:XPL), an innovative leader in the rugged PC industry, teams up with Progressive Gaming International Corporation (PGIC), a leading provider of technologies used in the gaming industry, to offer customers wireless gaming capabilities.

Xplore's iX104 rugged Tablet PC is used in conjunction with software provided by PGIC that allows clients to wager on individual outcomes within a sporting event such as, "will the next play be a pass or a rush?"

It is further intended that this solution will eventually be allowed to extend to other areas of the casino, whether at the casino bar, restaurant and even poolside.

"We wanted to provide a solution for gaming enthusiasts who wanted the ability to wager and track their bets during games and events from anywhere in a casino where allowed by regulations. We needed to find a hardware product that was flexible and rugged enough to be handled by everyday patrons but also had to function well with our software. After some comprehensive research, the Xplore iX104 Tablet PC seemed the most logical choice," stated Brandon Knowles, Vice President of Gaming Technology at Progressive Gaming International.

According to Mark Holleran, President and CEO for Xplore, "We are excited to be partnering with PGIC to offer this leading-edge technological advancement to the gaming industry and public."

The complete application is in final stages of the regulatory approval process at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. PGIC hopes to be able to offer similar applications throughout the global gaming industry.
