Kiel, March 8, 2016 - The Cartel Panel of the Federal Supreme Court,
following today's oral proceedings concerning the appeal of Westdeutsche
Lotteriegesellschaft against the ruling of the Higher Regional Court of
Düsseldorf of April 9, 2014 (File reference VI-U Kart 10/12) in the legal
proceedings for damage brought by SWS Service GmbH, a fully-owned
subsidiary of mybet Holding SE (ISIN DE000A0JRU67), has by decision set the
date for the announcement of its ruling for June 7, 2016. In the ruling the
Federal Supreme Court made no further statements in the matter itself.

Background information: in 2008 SWS Service GmbH (formerly FLUXX GmbH), a
fully-owned 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 was then upheld by the Federal Supreme Court by order of March 3,
2015.
