B2Digital President Robert Russell stated, "This is an online gaming site with proprietary software that fits well with our current hotel package and affords us entry into this high growth, primarily off shore sector. Online poker grew more than 700% last year, according to recent statistics, to over 4 billion dollars that was wagered online last year. In fact, to capitalize on this high growth sector, we have hired a separate operational team to fully pursue online gaming strategies; while we maintain focus on expanding our hotel business`s Software package to now include `gaming where legal` this benefits shareholders as it will create additional income from many of our properties through Hoteliers internationally as it gives us a distinctive marketing advantage."

The tremendous growth and attraction of poker has been evidenced by such shows as Celebrity Poker and the Travel Channel`s 13-week WORLD POKER TOUR series, which was a ratings success on television, quickly becoming the highest-rated programming on that network in 2003 and 2004.

The 2004 winner of the World Series of Poker walked away with a world record prize of over $5 million, out of $49 million in total prizes, more than doubling the prize values awarded in 2003.

The Industry

A Bear Stearns report for the industry pegged annual revenue at $4.2 billion for 2003, while Christiansen Capital Advisors predicts a slightly rosier picture pointing to an estimated $4.5 billion in revenue for calendar year 2004, saying 2005 revenue could exceed $10 billion. www.PokerPulse.com estimates that approximately over $150,000,000 is wagered at online poker sites every day (24/7).
