Gaming Corporation PLC
                  

Gaming Corporation Plc (LSE: GMC.LN), the leading gaming portal operator and
owner of both Gambling.com and Casino.co.uk, announces that it has signed a
contract with Vodafone UK, to launch a fully interactive mobile casino service
on Vodafone live! The service is due to be launched within the next month.

The service will initially include 11 state of the art java games including
Blackjack, Roulette, Stud Poker, slots and scratch cards, and will be available
for both practice and real cash play. Registration and deposits can be made via
the mobile handset.

Age verification for cash players will be in accordance with Vodafone's 'Content
Control' which prevents minors from accessing age-restricted content. Player
deposits will be initially restricted to valid credit card transactions only. In
addition maximum bet sizes, daily limits on user deposits and advice on cash
gaming will be available in order to encourage responsible usage.

The contract covers the provision of content to the WAP site and a broad suite
of java based games.

Commenting on the launch of the new service Justin Drummond, Chief Executive of
Gaming Corporation plc, said,

'This is a significant deal in the growth and status of Gaming Corp which
confirms our market leading position in the mobile gaming sector. The potential
worldwide market for mobile gambling is predicted to grow to over US$19.3
Billion in 2009*, and account for nearly one-third of all mobile entertainment
revenues '.

'This is a major advance for Gaming Corporation and will bring further scale to
our mobile gaming operation. Having secured contracts with both Orange and
Vodafone we are confident that we can deliver further network operator deals
within both the UK and Europe'.
