Konami Australia Pty Ltd completed the simultaneous installation of its gaming
enterprise management system at two of Echo Entertainment Group’s premier
Queensland venues – Jupiters Hotel & Casino and Treasury Casino & Hotel.

“With the installation of KONAMI’s system at the Jupiters and Treasury casinos
in Queensland, Echo Entertainment has enhanced its ability to manage its
portfolio of properties and created value for its customers that extends
beyond each individual venue,” announced Jay Bertsch, senior manager, business
development at Konami Australia Pty Ltd. “Echo Entertainment also operates The
Star in New South Wales and has been a leader in the Australian gaming
industry for years. We are excited to extend our partnership in order to help
them enhance what are already world-class customer experiences at their
Jupiters and Treasury venues.”

The Jupiters Hotel & Casino is located on the Gold Coast in Queensland and has
been in operation for over 25 years. The venue is home to seven restaurants,
eight bars, nearly 600 rooms including suites, a variety of live
entertainment, one of the largest convention centres in Australia, and a
state-of-the-art gaming floor with more than 1,500 machines and 90 table
games.

The Treasury Casino & Hotel is located in the heart of Brisbane and has been
in operation for nearly 20 years. This historical venue provides six
restaurants, five bars, 128 lavishly appointed rooms, and a three-story gaming
experience in one of Australia’s grandest heritage buildings. The Treasury
offers more than 1,400 machines and 100 tables.

"Our two Queensland venues have been in business for nearly 50 years combined
and we are thrilled to now have KONAMI’s management system because it provides
us with a powerful set of tools to help us bring our customers the best
entertainment experience possible,” explained Kel Telford, chief information
officer at Echo Entertainment Group.

“The installation of KONAMI’s system has allowed us to provide our customers
with a new diverse set of gaming machines enhanced by the offering of TITO
