Jan Fraedrich takes charge of Online Marketing at JAXX

Altenholz/Hamburg, May 18, 2010 - Jan Fraedrich has taken charge of Online
Marketing at the gaming provider JAXX with effect from May 1, 2010. In the
newly created post of 'Online Marketing Director' the 43-year-old native of
Hamburg will focus on the pan-European expansion of the JAXX Group's gaming
platforms across all group brands.

Jan Fraedrich started his career with Deutsche Telekom, where over a period
of ten years he made a major contribution to the expansion and success of
its internet subsidiary T-Online. Latterly Fraedrich, who studied Business
Administration and Marketing in Germany, France and the USA, was Head of
Online Marketing at the online partner agency Parship.

'Jan brings with him the expertise that we need to make our 'myBet' and
'JAXX' brands even stronger,' commented Mathias Dahms, Management Board
spokesman of JAXX AG. 'Positioning our internet products optimally in the
key European markets will play a decisive role in our continuing successful
development.'

JAXX is among those benefiting from the liberalisation of gaming markets in
Europe. Following on from Austria, the UK and Spain, where the company is
already active, the next target markets for JAXX's expansion are Italy and
France. JAXX also believes that there is fresh potential in the home market
Germany, where online betting has been prohibited since the introduction of
the controversial State Treaty on gaming: 'At every level we are working
flat out to find a political successor solution to the State Treaty on
gaming that will once again provide companies such as JAXX with a sensible
basis on which to do business,' added Dahms.
