The Weather Lottery is delighted to announce today's appointments of Lord

corporate clients.  He has chaired several quoted companies and was awarded the
title of European Lawyer of the year in 1992.

Robert White started his career with The Royal Bank of Scotland, eventually
moving into senior management positions in Glasgow and the West Midlands over a
20 year period.  10 years ago he moved into the telecommunications and
technology sectors, successfully developing two businesses.

Concurrent with these new board appointments, Neil McGowan and Mike Mills have
stood down as directors of the Company.  Andy Moore has stood down as Chairman
of the Company, but will remain as a Non-Executive Director.

Lord Razzall, the Company's new Chairman said:
"I am delighted to become the Chairman of the Weather Lottery.  I believe that
together with Robert, Andy and Keith, we can build on the foundations already
laid and develop The Weather Lottery into a successful company."

The Company has today issued 16,000,000 new ordinary 0.1p shares ("Ordinary
Shares") to Andy Moore in settlement of accrued director's fees of £32,000.  An
application has been made to admit these shares for trading on AIM on 12 January
2010.  Following the issue of these shares, Mr. Moore will have a total holding
of 21,537,500 Ordinary Shares, equivalent to 21.69% of the enlarged share
capital of the Company. The issue of the new shares to Mr. Moore is a Related

Directors (all Directors other than Mr. Moore), who have consulted with the
Company's nominated adviser, believe the terms of the issue to be fair and
reasonable in so far as shareholders are concerned.The Company now has
99,304,730 shares in issue.
