AUSTIN, Texas -- February 26, 2013

Multimedia Games Holding Company, Inc. (Nasdaq: MGAM), through its
wholly-owned subsidiary, Multimedia Games, Inc. (“Multimedia Games” or “the
Company”), a leader in slot tournament systems, announced today the launch of
the 2013 National TournEvent^® of Champions^™, a first-of-its-kind nationwide
slot tournament powered by the Company’s award-winning TournEvent^® slot
tournament system. Kicking off on March 2^nd at the Eagle Mountain Casino in
Porterville, California, the 2013 National TournEvent of Champions will
identify America’s best slot tournament players while visiting 20 states and
over 60 participating casinos. Multimedia Games’ National TournEvent of
Champions events will also feature the added excitement of the “Money Man^®
Mobile” branded tour bus as it travels across the country.

Designated winners of each casino’s final qualifying event will receive a
five-night trip to Las Vegas (including airfare and accommodations for the
winning participant and a guest) to play in the national championship on
September 25, 2013, which will be held in conjunction with the annual Global
Gaming Expo (G2E^®). At the national final, held in Lagasse’s Stadium at The
Palazzo, approximately 75 participants will compete for a $100,000 grand
prize, bragging rights for their home casino, and the title of Nation’s Best
Slot Tournament Player.

Patrick Ramsey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Multimedia Games,
commented, “Last year, over 20,000 players in California and Washington helped
make their statewide TournEvent of Champions events a resounding success and
we are thrilled to bring the energy and excitement to players across the
country with the 2013 Nationwide TournEvent of Champions. It is clear that
this nationwide slot tournament will create an entirely new experience for
players and offer a unique marketing opportunity for participating casinos,
and we invite those casinos who are not yet part of the event, but are
interested in bringing this excitement to their gaming floor, to sign up. The
team at Multimedia Games has delivered a turnkey solution that harnesses the
power of our TournEvent system to generate instant floor-wide buzz and, over
the course of each tournament, we are confident that this buzz will help drive
higher floor traffic and increased floor-wide revenue performance at our
customers’ facilities.”

The National TournEvent of Champions bus and traveling entourage will be
traveling nationwide for nearly six months, visiting more than 60 casinos in
six regions. Players can look for casino qualifying events in their region
during the following periods:

Region            States                              Dates

Mr. Ramsey added, “TournEvent has been a major success for our Company as well
as for our customers, enabling them to quickly and seamlessly host slot
tournaments on their gaming floors without the need to disrupt existing
operations. By creating tournaments on the fly and in full view of the gaming
floor, operators are leveraging the power of TournEvent to easily create
excitement and further improve their floor performance with a minimal
incremental investment in new gaming technology. We believe the 2013 National
TournEvent of Champions is a natural evolution of the capabilities offered by
TournEvent and believe that our customers are as excited as we are to kick off
the nationwide event in early March.”

be leading the National TournEvent of Champions entourage across the country,
said, “I’m excited to spend the next seven months bringing the best of slot
tournament entertainment to casinos across the country. Having witnessed the
player enthusiasm and ‘holiday-weekend’ energy and play levels created by our
California and Washington events last year, I can’t wait to see what a
national tournament brings to our customers’ facilities. The stakes are
higher, the excitement is sure to reach new levels, and our tour bus and Money
