Inc. Magazine announced the release of its 26th Annual Inc. 500 list of America's Fastest Growing Private Companies this month, with international gaming distributor BMI Gaming, Inc. ranked at No. 406 on the list, and No. 20 among all retailers.

BMI Gaming, The World's Largest Gaming Superstore™ (http://www.bmigaming.com), is a leading global distributor of coin-operated arcade and amusement devices, with customers throughout North America and in over fourteen countries, with headquarters based in Boca Raton, Florida.

BMI Gaming sell its products to a strong and recurring residential customer base, and emerging commercial markets including business offices, retail stores, resorts, cruise lines, entertainment
and hospitality facilities, sports complexes, educational facilities, health care facilities, non profit and fraternal organizations, local, state and federal government entities, the U.S. Military and many other non-traditional venues typically overlooked by the arcade industry.

Founder and CEO David L. Young attributes the rapid growth and success of the company due to the size and popularity of its website, which is ranked # 1 in site traffic within the amusement industry by Quantcast.com, its world-class customer service and nationwide service network, and the vast array of gaming products it offers, with over thirteen hundred arcade games contained within its online catalog system, ranging in price from $750 to over $150,000.

In its continuing push into new areas of growth, BMI Gaming recently expanded its commercial business consulting services to newly opening FEC's (family entertainment centers), arcades and game rooms, including site feasibility and layout studies, marketing and special events, financial planning and related services, and is also exploring targeted industry acquisitions.

"We were lucky to have started out with great products, patient vendors and wonderful clients," Young stated. "Our success would not have come as quickly as it has without the dedication of our current management team, the encouragement and support from our suppliers, and
in no small part, to our very loyal customer base that has helped 'spread the word' about BMI Gaming to other potential customers, both around the block and around the world".

BMI Gaming is the first company in the amusement distribution industry to be awarded a position on the annual Inc. 500 list by achieving a revenue growth rate of over 700% over the last three years. The company was also recently recognized by Internet Retailer Magazine as one of the Top 500 Internet Retailers In America in 2007 and 2006, and by PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Entrepreneur Magazine on their annual Hot 100 Fastest Growing Private Firms list in 2006.

The Inc. 500 list has identified many of the next generation of world-class companies like Oracle Microsoft, E*Trade, Intuit and Domino's Pizza, all of whom appeared on the list before they became
industry powerhouses. This year's Inc. 500 firms were responsible for generating over $16 billion in revenues, and creating more than 64,000 new jobs since their companies first began operating.
