EGET's Total Gaming Concept

25 May 2006

Finnish digital gaming services and solutions supplier European Game and Entertainment Technology Ltd. (EGET) this week announced two key areas of expansion: the unveiling a turnkey software package and the creation of a new subsidiary to focus on mobile gambling.

The new software system, called "EnterGainment," is a total turn-key solution with a wide range of games. The aim is to ensure a successful gaming business, new customers and more profit.

With the move comes EGET's decision to operate its business areas by creating WinOne, a subsidiary that will specialize in mobile money gaming solutions: "Mobile EnterGainment."

"EnterGainment is the umbrella concept for both EGET and WinOne, representing the games and services that will provide EGET's customers and ultimately the players. With EnterGainment, EGET is no longer just a technology provider but brings competence, enthusiasm and fair play via social responsibility to the gaming market," EGET CEO Martin Prantner explained. "As gaming has become part of everyday life, and the convergence of entertainment and monetary gaming is reality, EGET provides fun and entertaining games with a mass-market appeal: 'EnterGainment' games."

Prantner added, "With this new approach, both EGET, founded in 1999, and WinOne are offering a new era of opportunity to their customers with enthralling digital games, such as multiplayer bingo, scratch cards and slot machines. EnterGainment is the perfect concept to describe our new direction and our services. With e-gaming expanding rapidly, EGET enables gaming operators to respond to this development and offer responsible but innovative entertainment to an even wider audience. Our EnterGainment services include the gaming expertise and value-adding services that EGET provides."

WinOne's Mobile EnterGainment includes an extensive and innovative game portfolio and a complete platform for the delivery, management and marketing of mobile money games. As such, Mobile EnterGainment enables operators to entertain the customers with compelling games while they are on the move.

EGET employs 70 people and has offices in Helsinki and Mariehamn, which is located on the Ă…land Islands, an autonomous region in Finland.
