Countdown to the 'Fat One': Spain produces the next jackpot for FLUXX

- FLUXX subsidiary DigiDis SL profiting from 'El Gordo' fever
- Spanish Christmas lottery generates sales of around EUR 3 billion

Altenholz/Madrid, December 20, 2007 – With the German record-breaking
jackpot for the 6 from 49 lottery still fresh in everyone's minds – having
brought FLUXX record sales and record ticket totals – the next 'safe bet'
for sales is already looming large on the horizon for the Kiel-based gaming
specialist: the Spanish Christmas lottery 'Sorteo extraordinario de
Navidad'. This is the first year that Madrid-based DigiDis SL, a subsidiary
of FLUXX AG, is operating in conjunction with the biggest Spanish sales
partner for tickets for the Christmas lottery, La Bruixa D'Or. DigiDis'
role in the partnership is to handle online ticket sales.

Drawn every year on December 22, Spain's 'Sorteto de Navidad' captures the
attention of the whole nation and brings in around EUR 3 billion for the
national state lottery. 70 percent of the takings are distributed in the
form of winnings, with the main prize alone - known as 'El Gordo' ('The Fat
One') – amounting to almost half a billion euros. Small wonder, then, that
according to newspaper reports virtually everyone in Spain buys a share in
a ticket for the 'Sorteo de Navidad', with the average spend amounting to
around EUR 90. The draws on December 22 are broadcast live on virtually
every television station.

'For FLUXX, the legendary Spanish 'Sorteo' provides the icing on the cake
at the end of an extremely successful fourth quarter of 2007,' assessed
Rainer Jacken, founder and Management Board spokesman of FLUXX AG. 'Hot on
the heels of the high sales that the German lottery's 45 million euro
jackpot brought us, our business in Spain now brings the year to a highly
satisfactory close. We have stepped up our marketing activities towards the
end of the year in order to translate the Christmas lottery's appeal into a
large number of registrations of first-time customers. The high sales
combined with the significantly expanded customer base provide an excellent
starting point for safeguarding our profitability next year.'

The FLUXX subsidiary DigiDis SL is one of several FLUXX AG companies in
other countries; it develops successful business models and concepts for
the world of games & gambling and promotes the lottery products of several
of Spain's biggest service providers. These include the telephone company
Telefónica and its internet service terra.es, as well as the online portal
Yahoo! España. DigiDis also operates its own lottery service under the name
of 'Serviapuestas'.
