GTECH G2, a world leading online gaming services and software provider, will
increase its online poker presence in Canada via the British Columbia Lottery
Corporation, which has partnered with the Manitoba Lotteries Corporation.

Last week, Steve Ashton, the government minister who oversees lotteries in
Manitoba, disclosed plans that will see the Manitoba Lotteries Corporation
partner with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation to offer a host of online
gambling facilities in the province, powered by GTECH G2.

Manitoba to Access the Canadian Poker Network

According to the partnership, the Manitoba Lotteries Corporation is looking to
launch online poker and casino offerings by early 2013. In terms of online
poker, it is expected to piggyback on the British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s
existing licensing agreement with GTECH G2, which will give it access to
the gaming firm’s popular Canadian Poker Network.

If all goes according to plan, Manitoba is expected to generate in excess of $17
million a year in online gambling revenues by no later than 2018. This will no
doubt go some way to help top up the province’s coffers as well as offer its
resident online gambling fans a safe, secure and regulated internet gaming
environment they can feel comfortable playing at.

Said GTECH G2 Vice-President, William Scott, ‘Manitoba Lotteries Corporation
joining the Canadian Poker Network through its partnership with the British
Columbia Lottery Corporation is a very exciting development for us. We’ve seen
the Canadian Poker Network increase in scale since launching in December of
2010, and its continued growth will help generate greater player numbers and
larger tournaments.’

GTECH G2 Already Powers BCLC and Loto-Quebec

The online subsidiary of leading US gaming services and technology firm GTECH
Corporation, GTECH G2 already provides its state-of-the-art online poker
solution to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation as well as to Loto-Quebec,
which between the two, saw more than 40,000 legalised and regulated online poker
tournaments run in 2011.

Said the British Columbia Lottery Corporation iGaming
Vice-President, ‘GTECH G2 provides a world-class poker solution and has a strong
reputation in regulated markets. The experience of GTECH G2 in both Canada and
around the world in running successful poker networks has been fundamental to
our success and continued growth.’
