Good-Time Action® Games, a Four Corners' company, helped Texas charities raise more than $25 million through regulated bingo operators in 2013.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 05, 2014
Four Corners, Inc. and its companies, G-TAG® Tribal Markets and Good-Time Action® Games, announced record operating income for 2013. The company also obtained an agreement for a new senior credit facility which establishes the first major commercial lending relationship in Four Corners’ history.
Good-Time Action® Games continued its dominant position as Texas’ largest distributor of bingo games and supplies to charitable bingo operators. Four Corners companies helped Texas charities raise more than $25 million through regulated bingo operators in 2013.
Moreover, Four Corners’ companies led a fundraising effort for the West Volunteer Fire Department to help the victims of the devastating fertilizer plant explosion that crippled the small central Texas town. The company’s employees helped organize a “Bingo Night” fundraising event across the state of Texas. Held on June 1st, the “Bingo Night” raised more than $70 thousand to aid West, Texas.
Jeremy Tyra, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Four Corners said, “It is a privilege for Good-Time Action® Games to help charitable Bingo operators raise money for important community organizations that nourish programs such as volunteer fire departments and after school child care. And in Oklahoma we are proud that G-TAG® Tribal Markets gets to be a part of providing a gaming experience that helps contribute to the preservation of the cultural heritage and traditions of Native Americans.”
2013 marked the rollout of three new revolutionary products by Four Corners’ companies: MegaKeno® offering the nation’s first CASH jackpot of more than two million dollars to players at three tribal casinos operated by the Chickasaw Nation including WinStar World Casino and Resort ; G-MAXX®, a patented portable electronic gaming device for charitable bingo operators; and the installation of Class II games manufactured by WMS® in Oklahoma casinos by G-TAG® Tribal Markets.
More than two million dollars worth of investments and start-up capital funds provided by Four Corners’ companies was either fully repaid or generated positive returns on the investments in 2013.
Four Corners’ companies stayed at the forefront of seeking legislative and regulatory solutions that will help charitable operators. A new petition for rule-making at the Texas Lottery Commission would permit bingo players to have accounts on their card minders which would eliminate frequent trips to the cashier and offer a wider choice of games to play.
Knowles Cornwell, the Chief Operating Officer of Four Corners said, “If charitable operators could receive an additional three dollars for every bingo card minder currently in use, the proposed rule could generate approximately $36 million for Texas’ charities.”
Four Corners also made the following promotions and changes to its executive team in 2013:
Jeremy Tyra - President and CEO, Director
Nick Holt, Chief Financial Officer
Tom Foley - Chairman of the Board of Directors, Compliance Committee
Knowles Cornwell - Director
John Schreiber - Compliance Committee
Mike Peterson - Compliance Committee
