Dublin Hosts IGCE

21 August 2006

HATBORO, Pennsylvania – (PRESS RELEASE) -- The International Gaming
Conference & Expo (IGCE), slated to take place November 5-7 in Dublin at
the historic Fitzpatrick Castle, will feature an extensive and
comprehensive program and roster of speakers, unprecedented networking, and
the high standards of excellence of the IGCE.

"It is critical," indicated Chris Dauer, Conference Director for The
Sports Network, organizer of the Conference, "that the venue chosen for a
gathering of this sort be the best available to complement the learning
experience. We have learned, from years of experience, that the venue at
which a major conference of this nature is held bears mightily on
attendance. It must," he continued, "have all of the facilities and
features that participants would expect if they were going on vacation and
make accommodations available that are nothing less than first class."

IGCE Europe will also feature a one day precursor European spotlight,
featuring regulators and leaders from key European jurisdictions including
Germany, Luxembourg, Italy, Brussels, Finland, Gibraltar and Sweden. This
in-depth segment will include discussion on the possibility of
de-regulation of the German market following the declaration of Oddset (the
state monopoly) as un-constitutional, the implication of the Swiss
Institute of Comparative Law and its recommendations, and the Italian
blockage of gambling sites.

Attendees will experience the 18th century Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel in
Killiney, Co. Dublin. Enjoy the charm and elegance of the south Dublin
coast, Killiney, Dun Laoghaire and Dalkey with their gourmet restaurants
and cozy pubs. Situated at the brow of Killiney Hill, and just nine miles
from Dublin's bustling city centre, Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel is easily
accessed from both Dublin Airport and Dun Laoghaire ferry port.

IGCE, whose major sponsors presently include Microgaming, BetFair, ESA
(Entertainment & Sports Agency), Dublin Bet and BetCRIS, will gather gaming
attorneys, investors, analysts, legislators, regulators, marketing firms,
advertisers, sportsbook operators, payment processors, as well as
technology experts. The comprehensive IGCE program will examine online
gambling, poker, bingo, skill games, affiliate marketing and relationships,
sports content, horse racing, land-based competition, gaming platforms,
technology, international legal and regulatory issues, marketing/brand
awareness, payment solutions, Asian and European markets -- appeal of
soccer, cricket, rugby and other sports, the public desire for
