- Supervisory Board Chairman Goetz Graf von Hardenberg to surrender office
- Management Board spokesperson Rainer Jacken to switch to Supervisory
Board

Goetz Graf von Hardenberg will be surrendering office as Chairman of the
Supervisory Board of JAXX AG with effect from April 6, 2009. The Management
Board of JAXX AG today submitted an application to the Local Court of Kiel
pursuant to Section 104 of German Stock Corporation Law for the size of the
Supervisory Board to be restored, in order to preserve the Supervisory
Board's legal capacity until new elections are held at the Shareholders'
Meeting in May 2009. The Management Board has proposed the appointment of
Rainer Jacken. At the Shareholders' Meeting on May 14, 2009 the Supervisory
Board will therefore propose to the shareholders of JAXX AG that Rainer
Jacken be elected to the Supervisory Board.

Rainer Jacken, founder and Management Board spokesperson of JAXX AG, will
surrender office as a Management Board member with effect from April 1,
2009. His areas of responsibility - Consumer Sales, Investor Relations and
Business Development - will be distributed between the remaining Management
Board members Mathias Dahms and Stefan Hänel. The function of Management
Board spokesperson will be taken on by Mathias Dahms, who has been involved
in JAXX since its founding. A resolution to that effect was today passed by
the Supervisory Board of JAXX AG.

Information and Explaination of the Issuer to this News:

Graf von Hardenberg is Management Board member of Hanseatische
Verlags-Beteiligungs AG in Hamburg and has been Chairman of the Supervisory
Board of JAXX AG since its establishment on December 22, 1998. Graf von
Hardenberg has steered the company reliably through both calm and stormy
waters over the past ten years.

'That I had the privilege of being part of JAXX AG throughout its first ten
years has undoubtedly been one of the most stimulating and exciting tasks
of my career,' commented Goetz Graf Hardenberg. 'JAXX is now making steady
progress, so this is a good time to hand over to someone else. My very best
wishes to my successor and the whole JAXX team for a successful future.'

Rainer Jacken is one of the founder members of the JAXX Group and helped
the holding company, which originally traded under the name of 'fluxx.com
Aktiengesellschaft', to go public in autumn 1999. As spokesman of the
Management Board, he has been leading JAXX AG from the front for the past
ten years. With his shareholding of almost 1.6 percent, Jacken is
furthermore one of the stock corporation's biggest shareholders.

'After ten years of intensive, passionate work and various far-reaching
changes in the business environment, the time is now ripe for some personal
changes,' explained Rainer Jacken in connection with his impending switch
to the Supervisory Board. 'JAXX has successfully made the transition from a
German lottery agent to a European gaming group. The foundations for
profitable growth outside the German lottery market, which is choking under
a mass of absurd legislation, have now been laid. Even if I will no longer
be involved in the game as team captain, I will be cheering on just as
ardently from the touchline!'
