30 May 2001

CANADA -- (Press Release) -- May 30, 2001 -- (OTCBB:EBNK -) announced today that the company has signed reciprocal marketing agreements with Grand Central Sportsbook (GCS), one of the leading sports and race book sites on the Internet.

In addition, the applications will be uniquely customized so as to allow GCS to enhance and augment both the sports book content and client services in addition to aiding with our core business development.
