1 April 2003

Making Deals -- Parlay Entertainment Ltd., an Internet gaming software company that's part of the DCEG Group of Companies, announced yesterday that four of its recent licensees are now online. Two of them, www.bingobilly.com and www.casinobilly.com, are operated by Sportingbet plc. Another, www.winwardcasino.com, is operated by Metagalaxia S.A. , which has been in the online gaming business since 1998 and also operates bingohall.com. The last, www.thevirtualbingo.com, is a sister site to www.thevirtualcasino.com. Parlay said it plans to open two more casino sites and one more bingo site with Sportingbet in a matter of months.

New Stuff -- William Hill is said to be close to launching a new Web site that will appeal primarily to bettors who only wager once year--on the Grand National horse race. The site will be unveiled later this week, reported Revolution UK Online. The company has also inked an agreement with NetNames, a domain name provider. William Hill's domain names now include williamhillgrandnational.com, williamhillcasino.com and williamhillpoker.com. The U.K.-based bookmaker reported a rise in e-gaming operating profits of 123 percent last year.

Data Hub -- An economics professor at the University of Nevada at Reno, Bill Eadington, will soon publish a report on the social costs of gambling. The report is in response to a study done by Keith Schwer, the director of University of Nevada at Las Vegas Center for Business and Economic Research, who stated that gambling addiction in Southern Nevada costs the state between $300 million and $470 million per year.
