Games, Inc.'s Maryland Lottery Contract Extended - Wednesday 14th of December 2005

CINCINNATI, Ohio – Games, Inc. (OTC BB:GMSI.OB) announced today that its VIP Club and Related Services Contract with the Maryland Lottery has been extended for another year, through November 9, 2006.

The contract was originally awarded through a bid process on October 21, 2004, and covers services provided for the creation and implementation of an Internet-based VIP Club. These services include database management, e-mail and text messaging services and other customer relationship management services.

"Games, Inc. is very pleased to have this opportunity to continue to work with the Maryland Lottery," said Dennis Kennedy, President of the Games, Inc. Lottery Division.

Cincinnati, Ohio-based, Games, Inc. owns and operates a portfolio of online portals focused on the delivery of interactive entertainment and content to consumers. The Company features two community-focused online game sites as well as proprietary games for purchase-and-download, conventional online play, peer-to-peer and tournament game play. Games, Inc. also features a digital greetings site and a site and proprietary back-end system for the online facilitation and reporting of state and provincially-sponsored Lotteries. Revenues are largely driven by online advertising and subscriptions; however, proprietary content delivery and decremented payment systems will enable software licensing to become a component of the revenue mix alongside merchandise and lottery-driven commissions.
