Bingo Comes Alive with Global Games

12 May 1998

MINNEAPOLIS -- Global Games Corp. will soon introduce multi-player interactive Internet bingo, through its licensing agreement with Internet Gaming Corp., Dominica, West Indies, that will permit live player-to-player chat and will take advantage of the latest, completely secure client/server technology.

The new software features twelve bingo games that allow players to play against one another in prescheduled action. Live, player-to-player chat will greatly enhance the entertainment value of each player's experience.

By utilizing the latest Java, GIF 89a and client/server technology, the "secure server" registration process is made very simple and players can be ready to play in as little as ten minutes. Global's new bingo game is modeled directly upon traditional bingo for familiarity and ease of use. Once registered, players can enter each new game they wish to participate in and be playing in less than five minutes.

Global's Bingo engine software also includes "back office" software which controls all aspects of transaction management including customer registration and tracking, "secure server" credit card verification and generation of in-depth administrative reports.

Proprietary software will soon be released for other "real-deal" casino games including multi-player blackjack (using Java); four versions of slot machines; video poker; and Net show for video bingo calling.

Global Games won't be directly involve in any Internet gaming to US residents. To enable shareholders to view and experience fully functioning, non-revenue versions of its software, however, it'll soon provide an Internet site which will illustrate the unique features of Global's multi-player software.
