GameAccount Appoints New CEO - Tuesday 11th of April 2006

LAS VEGAS – GameAccount, the world's largest integrated network of skill-based P2P games, is pleased to announce the appointment of Kevin Dale as Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect. Kevin Dale succeeds John Jones, under whose management the company has grown into a market leader.

Kevin Dale brings to the company over 6 years of experience in the gaming industry. He has been involved at GameAccount as a non-executive Director to date, having previously been interim Managing Director at Betdirect. He was also Marketing Director at two of the industry's biggest success stories, Sportingbet plc and Betfair.com.

Kevin Dale will oversee the further aggressive expansion of the GameAccount skill games solution. Having witnessed the poker phenomenon and, first hand, the rise of person to person betting exchanges, he is keen to develop GameAccount as the next P2P goliath. GameAccount's strategy is to integrate high revenue generating P2P gaming products which are distributed via its many bookmaking partners and white label sites.

The GameAccount integrated network brings together players from dozens of sportsbook, casino & poker sites worldwide, making it the unrivalled market leader in the remote gaming space. Recently acquired partner licensees include Victor Chandler and Sky Bet, with more exciting partnerships to be announced in the first half of 2006. The service has also penetrated untapped international markets through cutting-edge multi-currency and multi-lingual features.

Commenting on the company's present and future, Mr. Dale said, "Each week, millions of dollars are won by high-staking players wagering within the network 24/7. Integrating our suite of Sit 'n' Go & knockout tournament games makes sense for operators searching for proven incremental rake-based revenues. Our single-wallet integrated P2P games service is proven to generate per-player value incremental to existing Poker services."
