Las Vegas, NV, May 5, 2009

Konami Gaming, Inc. is pleased to formally designate Koala Gaming as its official distributor in Chile.

Koala consists of three partners Michael Ecclefield, Gonzalo Tellez, and Ignacio Bustos who all bring a unique knowledge of the gaming industry to the company.

"After extensive research and evaluation Gonzalo, Ignacio and I decided it was time to move forward and focus on serving the growing industry" explains Michael Ecclefield. Mr. Ignacio Bustos says "Koala Gaming is 100% service oriented.
