Federal Supreme Court grants Westdeutsche Lotterie GmbH & Co. OHG right of
appeal

Kiel, May 9, 2015 - In response to an appeal by Westdeutsche Lotterie GmbH
& Co. OHG, Münster, against the non-admission of an appeal the Cartel Panel
of the Federal Supreme Court has granted a right of appeal against the
ruling of the 1st Cartel Panel of the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf.

In 2008 SWS Service GmbH (formerly FLUXX GmbH), a subsidiary of mybet
Holding SE, had filed for compensation for the illegal boycott of its
business by the German Lottery and Pools Organisation, in breach of
competition law. In April 2014 the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf had
then ordered Westdeutsche Lotterie GmbH & Co. OHG to pay damages of EUR
11.5 million plus interest. The Higher Regional Court did not grant a right
of appeal. The appeal subsequently lodged by Westdeutsche Lotterie GmbH &
Co. OHG against the non-admission of an appeal has now been upheld by the
Federal Supreme Court by order of March 3, 2015. The company received
notice to this effect yesterday, on Sunday.

The ruling of the Federal Supreme Court on the granting of a right of
appeal does not give any reasons. Under legislative rules the right of
appeal is granted if the legal matter is significant or if the further
development of the law or the assuring of a uniform body of case law
necessitates a decision by the appellate court. The granting of the appeal
is in itself no indication of the prospects of the appeal succeeding.

After notification of the ruling on the admission of an appeal by the
Federal Supreme Court, Westdeutsche Lotterie GmbH & Co. OHG must make its
case for the appeal within two months.
