he prior agreement between the two companies included only VendingData’s casino chips and casino chip related product lines and did not include Australia and New Zealand in the territory.

"This distribution agreement and expanded partnership with Elixir, Asia’s premier gaming technology company, will progress the members of this Asian gaming technology alliance as a group in its endeavor to emerge as the only total solution provider for all casinos in the fast growing Asia-Pacific region. As new alliances within the region are forged and relationships strengthen it will be our customers and their players who will benefit a great deal from this agreement," commented Mark Newburg, CEO of VendingData Corp.
Gordon Yuen, CEO of Elixir commented, "Elixir continues to forge alliances with leading gaming and technology companies and through leveraging off our partners’ core competencies we are able to focus entirely on innovative product design and customer service. We are proud to represent VendingData’s full product suite throughout the Asia-Pacific region and believe that all of its products as well as new products to be jointly developed will achieve significant market penetration".
