Costa Rica Marriott Hosts IGCE

27 January 2006

HATBORO, Pennsylvania – (PRESS RELEASE) -- The International Gaming Conference
& Expo (IGCE), to be held April 9th-11th at the Costa Rica Marriott, a four-
star resort in San Jose, Costa Rica, will feature a keynote address by the
President of one of the leading public gaming companies in the world.
Bill Huntley, President of Scientific Games,
will provide a state-of-the-industry address, outlining how Scientific Games
views the interactive gaming market, while considering expansion into sports
to complement their current leadership position with regards to horse racing.

While leading international public companies have been hesitant to date to
take the leap into worldwide interactive gaming, Scientific Games - a global
marketing and technology leader in the lottery, pari-mutuel, and
telecommunications industries - is initiating a different public stance, and
is choosing the forum of IGCE to announce and expound upon their plans.

"We're thrilled to have the head of a notable public gaming giant such as
Scientific Games keynoting the IGCE," said Christopher Dauer, Director of
Conferences for The Sports Network, the developer of the IGCE. "This is a
globally recognized organization that has tempered its direct dialogue with
the interactive gaming industry until now, advantaging IGCE as a forum through
which to explain its own plan while engaging in an anticipated Q&A exchange
with attendees following the keynote address."

IGCE, whose major sponsors presently are BetCRIS, Scientific Games and
WSEX, will gather together gaming attorneys, investors, analysts, legislators,
regulators, marketing firms, advertisers, sportsbook operators, payment
processors, as well as technological and software firms. The comprehensive
IGCE program will examine online gambling, poker, bingo, skill games, sports
content, horse racing, land-based competition, gaming platforms, technology,
international legal and regulatory issues, marketing/brand awareness, payment
solutions, Asian and European markets - the appeal of soccer, cricket, rugby
and other sports, the public desire for mahjong/backgammon/casino
games/virtual horse racing and much more.
