National TournEvent of Champions^®, a first-of-its-kind nationwide slot
tournament powered by the Company’s award-winning TournEvent^® slot tournament
system. Ms. Lindell was awarded the top prize of $100,000 in cash and the
championship ring on September 25, 2013, during the final event at Lagasse’s
Stadium at The Palazzo in Las Vegas and was recognized as the nation’s best

“On behalf of Multimedia Games, I’d like to congratulate Maria for her
thrilling victory as well as all the finalists who joined us last week in Las
Vegas to help make the 2013 National TournEvent of Champions a resounding
success,” said Patrick Ramsey, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Multimedia Games. “With approximately 1,000 participants, family members,
friends, employees and partners in attendance, the final event was filled with
incredible energy that created an unmatched atmosphere fitting for this unique
event. We believe the National TournEvent of Champions created an entirely new
experience for players and provided our participating customers with a
powerful marketing tool to create excitement on their slot floors during the
in-casino qualifying tournaments.

“TournEvent is a truly innovative, turnkey slot tournament solution that is
proven to generate instant floor-wide buzz, higher floor traffic and increased
revenue performance when in use. As we look forward to the 2014 National
TournEvent of Champions, we are ramping up the prizes, adding a second touring
bus and expecting even greater levels of participation as casino operators
have the chance to participate not only in the extraordinary excitement of the
final event in Las Vegas but also by the in-casino qualifying events over the
course of more than four months of non-stop action. We look forward to working
closely with our customers to ensure that next year’s event takes the
TournEvent of Champions to a whole new level.”

Ronda Weizenegger, General Manager of Grand Casino Mille Lacs, added, “At
Grand Casino, we are always looking for opportunities to bring exciting new
promotions and special events to our guests. We are thrilled that Maria not
only won the Grand Casino Mille Lacs event, but went on to win the top prize
at the National TournEvent of Champions Finals.”

Multimedia Games also announced last week the launch of the 2014 National
TournEvent of Champions, which the Company expects will ramp up the tournament
experience, fun and available cash prizes. Beginning in May 2014, casinos from
around the country can bring The Money Man and the excitement of the National
TournEvent of Champions to their casinos and give their players a chance to
compete for over $500,000 in guaranteed cash prizes and a trip to Las Vegas
for the championship event on October 1, 2014. Two TournEvent of Champions
busses will crisscross the nation in search of the country’s top tournament
player, while bringing the best of tournament entertainment to casinos
nationwide and creating a buzz on the casino floors around the in-casino
qualifying and finals events.

Linda Trinh, Director of Marketing and Promotions for Multimedia Games,
concluded, “The Multimedia Games promotions team created history, as our
traveling bus brought the excitement of TournEvent to casinos across the
country. We saw an incredible outpouring of enthusiasm among players and
casinos for the National TournEvent of Champions and believe the event
generated a significant buzz at each of the 77 host casinos. We again
congratulate Maria on her victory and hope she joins us next year to defend
her title as nation’s best tournament player, as we kick off the 2014 National
TournEvent of Champions in May 2014.”
