World Gaming plc sales and marketing update - Tuesday 12th of July 2005

World Gaming plc (LSE: WGP, OTC BB: WGMGY), a UK-based e-gaming solutions provider, ("the Company"), is pleased to provide an update on its sales and marketing activities and initiatives.

The Company has entered into two new agreements to provide its integrated sportsbook, racing, casino and poker solution. As part of one of these agreements, World Gaming has agreed to license its rights to several of its proprietary domain names, including gambling.net. The Company believes that the gambling.net site will perform well in attracting new players via search engines.

The two white label licensees that the Company announced earlier in the year have both completed development of their websites and are now live. The websites can be found at gosportsbet.com and fieldgoal.com.

Commenting on the sales and marketing update, Daniel Moran, World Gamings CEO said:

"The Company continues to execute on its strategies. As such it is committed to growing the business organically as well as evaluating potential acquisitions. Our existing licensees and white labels continue to perform very well and we look forward to the same success with these new partners."
