AGS Acquires Domain Name for Vietnam Lottery

7 December 1999
Applied Gaming Solutions of Canada Inc. has acquired the domain name "" as part of their plan to provide Internet access to the Vietnam national lottery.

"Securing this domain name demonstrates the Government of Vietnam's commitment to seizing opportunities created by the Internet in order to maximize its lottery revenues," said Alec Krstajic, vice president of Rogers@Home and a member of the AGS board of directors.

AGS will not be involved with any Internet transactions related to lotteries in any jurisdiction that prohibits this activity.
