Leap Forward Gaming Announces Launch of SaffariNet(R) Picture-in-Picture 
Ecosystem at Sands(R) Macao 
RENO, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 02/14/13 --  Leap Forward Gaming, Inc.
(LFG) has a history of creating groundbreaking products that forever
change the way the gaming industry does business. Now the company has
done it again, this time with its revolutionary patented
Picture-in-Picture (PiP) technology that was recently installed at
Sands Macao, one of the Venetian Macau Limited (VML) family of casino
properties. VML is a subsidiary of Sands China Ltd. 
LFG's PiP solution, known as Patron Display Interface (PDI), was
selected as a "Top Ten Slot Floor Product" at the 2012 Slot Floor
Technology Awards. PDI is a low-cost, turn-key solution that works
seamlessly with all brands and generations of gaming machines,
supporting all screen sizes, resolutions and aspect ratios. It is a
robust, completely customizable system utilizing the existing machine
displays to develop, dynamically manage and present content to
players, allowing for targeted marketing and bonusing campaigns and
straightforward integration with multiple customer relationship
management (CRM) systems. 
PDI enables players to view and interact in real-time with
configurable multimedia content on the machine screen, without
impacting game play. Real-time video streaming, animations, marketing
messages, promotions, ads, session points, promotional credits and
all player account information are just a touch away right on the
game screen, ushering in a new era of creativity for operators along
with interactivity for players. 
Tim Merrill, Vice President of Casino Operations for Venetian Macau
Limited, added, "VML has always embraced leading-edge technology that
provides our players with added-value and improves operational
efficiencies and maximizes profitability. We believe that the
SaffariNet(R) Picture-in-Picture solution has great promise for all
Venetian Macau Limited properties and we look forward to our
continued partnership with LFG."  
Leap Forward Gaming CEO Ali Saffari said, "Casino operators asked us
to develop a low-cost, flexible and retrofittable Picture-in-Picture
solution that works on all gaming machines and with all player
tracking systems. We listened, and our patented PDI technology is the
Picture-in-Picture solution the industry has been waiting for. LFG's
PDI solution provides players with a greatly enhanced gaming
experience and allows operators to utilize their existing machines
and infrastructure, consequently maximizing profitability. Sands
Macao is the first of many major properties slated for installation
of our ecosystem in Q1/Q2 of 2013." 
A recent Eilers-Fantini Quarterly Slot Survey tracked slot machine
and gaming technology purchasing trends of gaming operators. A key
summary finding was that operators are looking to add
Picture-in-Picture technology to their gaming floors. The summary
states that roughly 33% of participants plan to install
"Picture-in-Picture" (PiP) system technology over the next 12 months.
