FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

World's First High-Stakes Online Skill Gaming Portal Enjoys Record Money Player Sign-up

New York, NY - August 24, 2005 - Game Trust, Inc. and The Money Gaming Corporation, Ltd. ("TMGC") today announced record sign-up for the world's first high-stakes online skill gaming portal - MoneyGaming.com.

Since launching this week, more than 35,000 players have joined with 125,000 pre-launch sign-ups to play over 40,000 games on MoneyGaming.com, with up to 15% of players depositing money and playing cash tournaments.

MoneyGaming.com is setting new standards of quality in skill gaming with a host of innovative features powered by the Game Trust platform.

TMGC has selected nine hit skill games from the Game Trust catalogue of 45 titles to launch on MoneyGaming.com, such as Multiplayer 8 Ball, Chess and Backgammon. Players enter these skill game tournaments through a new "linear lobby," allowing contestants to easily sort games by prize amounts and other key criteria.

MoneyGaming.com features six exclusive major industry advances powered by the Game Trust platform:

1. Mid-Game Raising: Players in all multiplayer games, from Chess to Pool, can raise the stakes against their opponent during game play, forcing the opponent to increase the stake or resign.

2. Linear Lobby Applet: Players can now view games and stakes in a clear and efficient way, enabling players to jump between lobbies seamlessly. This "poker style" lobby is set to revolutionize skill gaming.

3. Detailed Game/Account Statistics: Players can track their historical performance in the tournaments against other opponents.

4. Concurrent Tournament Play: Players can compete in multiple games at the same time.

5. Advanced Deposit/Withdrawal Functions: Any player can withdraw money back against their credit card, debit card, PayPal account, Neteller account, or through check and the withdrawal will be processed within 24 to 48 hours.

6. High Stakes: MoneyGaming.com offers the largest range of stakes available, with stakes of up to $10,000 per game.

"If you want to play skill games for money, then I can safely say that there is no better place on the Internet to go than MoneyGaming.com," said Adeo Ressi, CEO of Game Trust. "Game Trust works with different portals to provide subscriptions, tournaments and virtual merchandise sales, and nobody has put the level of thought into making skill gaming work like The Money Gaming Corporation. They have leveraged the Game Trust technology to build a state-of-the-art system that provides an unparalleled user experience. We're proud to power this portal, which is already a breakaway success at its launch."

"We have been overwhelmed by the response from players worldwide at the launch of MoneyGaming.com. The level of play and interaction on the site confirms that players are responding to the secure and flexible design of the environment and the superior quality of play on offer," said Liad Shababo, CEO of The Money Gaming Corporation. "We chose to work with Game Trust in developing the MoneyGaming.com platform, as we believe they are the market leaders in the provision of cutting-edge, skill gaming technology, with a focus on providing the highest quality end-user experience."

Shababo continues, "Game Trust's platform allowed us to set a new industry standard and we are very proud of the final product. MoneyGaming.com was created to provide the ultimate in person-to-person skill-based gaming, where the better you play, the more you win!"
