Annual International I-Gaming Event Will Be Largest Yet

23 Mar 2005

MONTREAL, Quebec – (PRESS RELEASE) -- The seventh annual Global Interactive Gaming Summit and Expo (GIGSE) is on
tap to be the largest event of its kind ever held. It will take place June
13-15, 2005 at the Palais des Congres in Montreal, Quebec and is produced by
River City Group.

The Expo floor has already sold out and is being expanded to accommodate the
growing demand for access to the 1,000-1,200 interactive gambling executives
from 45 countries who will attend. With 80 days to the event, the Expo hall
is already filled with 63 companies who will use the Palais as their company
headquarters for the 3-day event. An additional 13 companies are sponsoring
related activities, events or promotions during GIGSE.

Sue Schneider, CEO of River City Group, noted, "We're so pleased that the
industry is responding as they are to the planning of this event. With the
rise of new i-gaming products such as online poker, it's an exciting time
for the industry. And we're pleased that we've been able to hold the line
on prices for this event for the past three years so that it's not only the
largest but the best value in the world for the interactive gambling
industry."

The program will include debate and presentations regarding many of the
issues facing the industry. Obviously, discussions regarding marketing
concerns, fraud control and cross-border legal wrangles will be covered. In
addition, many of the leading licensing jurisdictions from among the 85
governments globally which sanction internet gaming operations will be
featured.

Carrying over from the success of the 2004 GIGSE Sumo Wrestling Grudge
Matches held to raise money for the UK-based nonprofit GamCare, the 2005
GIGSE will feature both a Silent Auction and another head-to-head match up
of industry executives, this time in Segway Challenge races. The
beneficiary of this year's charity events is the California Council on
Problem Gambling (www.calproblemgambling.org), a nonprofit organization
dedicated to assisting problem gamblers and their families, and to promote
awareness, education, research, prevention and treatment for problem
gambling.

Early bird registration rates are still available via secure online
registration page on the event website, www.gigse.com and offer another way
to capitalize on the quality audience in attendance. With delegate fees
well below those of other events that serve the I-gaming industry, GIGSE has
the best value, best networking and best opportunities to reach this market.
