ACTION GAMING JOINS PLAYA DEL RACING AND DRIVER JAQUES LAZIER AS ASSOCIATE SPONSOR FOR INDY 500

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Action Gaming, the leading inventor and provider of video poker products in the gaming industry, today announced a major associate partnership for the Indianapolis 500 on the No. 21 Playa Del Racing Panoz/Toyota/Firestone driven by Jaques Lazier, of Vail, Colo.

Playa Del Racing, which loosely translated means "Beach Racing" in Spanish, is a new Indy Racing League IndyCar Series team founded on old principles: To have fun and go fast. Although the 2005 Indianapolis 500 will be the team's first race, it is made up of seasoned professionals that have years of racing experience, with numerous wins and championships on their resumes.

Playa Del Racing Vice President and Co-Owner, Susan Schafer, along with Co-Owner Gary Sallee, believe the addition of Action Gaming brings another exciting partner to the PDR team.

"Action Gaming is the leader in its industry," stated Schafer. "Founder and President Ernie Moody is a dynamic businessman and sportsman whose knowledge and experience bring added value to our growing relationship. Playa Del Racing looks forward to a rewarding and fun on- and off-track experience for everyone involved."

Moody is bringing his love of competition to automobile racing for the first time. His horse racing venture, Mercedes Stables, has been a key player in the highest levels of that sport for years.

"I have a love for and attraction to competing in historic races," an enthusiastic Moody explained. "My horse, Rock Hard Ten, recently won the Santa Anita Handicap! I couldn't be more excited to bring that love of competition to IndyCar racing and to the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing" as part of the Playa Del Racing team. Gary Sallee and Susan Schafer have assembled a team that appears to be ready to join the fight for victory."

Action Gaming is dedicated to the design, creation and innovation of video poker games and other games of chance. Founded in 1997, Action Gaming has brought to market, with its manufacturing and distribution partner IGT, hundreds of video poker games. Some of these games include Triple Play Draw Poker, Five Play Draw Poker, Hundred Play Draw Poker, Super Times Pay Poker and Five Play Multi-Strike Poker. Action Gaming products are represented in virtually every North American gaming jurisdiction and are exclusively distributed by IGT.
