JAXX subsidiary receives gaming licence in Spain

Kiel/Madrid, June 1, 2012 - DIGIDIS SA, Madrid, which is part of the JAXX SE Group (Deutsche Börse, Prime Standard, ISIN DE000A0JRU67), has today been granted one of the first online gaming licences in Spain. Its gaming range at www.NetBet.es is expected to go online in the course of June. The product range, including poker, roulette, blackjack, bingo and other casino games, covers all the Spaniards' favourite choices.

The NetBet.es range is aimed at a rapidly growing circle of Internet users who are increasingly seeking out Lady Luck online, too. For marketing its products, NetBet.es can call on a customer base of over 500,000 users who are registered for the JAXX Group's Spanish products.

The Spanish gaming market is one of the biggest in Europe. Every year, Spaniards spend some EUR 30 billion on lotteries, casino games and betting. Yet the online sector is still in its infancy and offers enormous potential for growth. According to the industry association 'JDigital', Internet gaming generated revenue of around EUR 370 million in 2011, with the total set to reach at least EUR 840 million by 2014.
