MonkeyBet Plans Move to Vegas - Monday 10th of April 2006

LAS VEGAS – MonkeyBet.com, a leading online poker, sports betting, and online casino gambling destination is making a move into Las Vegas. Tentatively scheduled for a grand opening in early 2008, MonkeyBet has completed negotiations to buy a parcel of land at 4600 Paradise Road to build its Las Vegas resort and casino. This event is historic, as this will be the first online casino to open a casino in Las Vegas.

Jeff Fuller, VP of Business Development for MonkeyBet.com stated, "I spent 15 years working on the strip, and the location we have chosen is very hot as we're right next to the Hard Rock Casino. Both the Hard Rock and the Palms have proven that serious adults, looking for the best gambling, restaurants, nightlife and entertainment prefer this type of location."

Mr. Fuller continued, "MonkeyBet's Las Vegas location with cater to the young and middle aged adult. We will have the biggest clubs, the largest sportsbook and the largest poker venue in Nevada. We will host our own major poker event to compete with the World Series of Poker. Our casino will take the best aspects of culture and urban living from London, Tokyo, New York and San Francisco, and combine these elements to make a unique Las Vegas gambling destination."

Mr. Fuller concluded, "MonkeyBet is really a brand that will expand to many business spheres. With over 100,000 customers in less than two years in operation, we know that this brand has legs. In parallel with the Las Vegas location, we are also investigating the development of the first truly national chain of sports bars and sportsbooks in the UK, where punters will be able to watch sports from around the world while betting on sports from terminals located in the pub. Stay tuned."
