CryptoLogic Launches Fan Favourite Street Fighter™ IV in New Game Pack

Latest game pack also features exciting African safari and alien-themed video slots

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwire - Aug. 4, 2009) - CryptoLogic Limited (TSX:CRY)(TSX:CXY)(NASDAQ:CRYP)(LSE:CRP), a world leader in Internet casino and branded gaming software, has launched a new downloadable game lineup that features a video slot version of the world-famous Street Fighter™ IV. The new game pack also features video slot games Savannah Sunrise, Cleo "Crazy Jackpots"™, Area 21 and updated versions of perennial favourites Caribbean Stud Poker, American Roulette and Video Poker.

The games initially will be available exclusively at www.intercasino.com, www.casinojoy.com, www.dtdcasinos.com, www.1casino.com and www.lottery.co.uk.

"Today, CryptoLogic leads the way with even more great games, including another brand with proven global appeal in Street Fighter IV," said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic's President and CEO. "One of CryptoLogic's strengths is the way we partner with some of the world's most popular entertainment brands to deliver a powerful experience for players - and ultimately profitability for our licensees and our shareholders."

Street Fighter™ IV

CryptoLogic redefines the fighting slot game genre with the new Street Fighter IV video slot game. Street Fighter IV is one of the most popular video games of 2009, with millions of copies sold since its debut in February. CryptoLogic's new video slot game promises to match this extraordinary gaming experience.

Players spin the reels for a chance to play the bonus round, where they can select from four different interactive rounds. Players select their favourite character and face off against an opponent for a chance to win free games and cash prizes. Players can play up to 25 lines and have the chance to win up to 5,000 times their maximum bet.

Savannah Sunrise

Take a ride on the wild side as CryptoLogic introduces its first 243 "all-ways" video slot game. Set in the gorgeous backdrop of the African Safari, Savannah Sunrise presents a more exciting way to play, where instead of being constrained by the number of paylines, players' payouts are based on the reels they bet.

This means that all symbols act as adjacent scatters and any adjacent symbol combination then offers a win. Line up three or more scattered tree symbols and activate 20 free games and up to a 15 times multiplier. Players can place bets in a range from 0.05 to 125 per spin.


Cleo "Crazy Jackpots"

The wondrous Pyramids and Caesar's temptress should make this Ancient Egyptian-themed video slot game an instant favourite. Cleo is the world's first nine-jackpot video slot game, with each jackpot attached to a payline. Each selected payline may win the corresponding jackpot when five Cleopatra symbols appear on a selected line.

The amount wagered per line determines the size of the jackpots to be won. Trigger the bonus feature round by lining up three or more scattered pyramid symbols for a chance to win cash prizes and multipliers.

Area 21

It's an alien world in CryptoLogic's latest 25-payline slot game. In Area 21's feature, players test their blackjack skills against an alien dealer. Players move through interactive bonus rounds where they can win up to 25 free spins with a five times multiplier and have the option to play from 0.01 to 500 per spin.

Other games

CryptoLogic has also launched updated versions of some of its perennial favourites, including Caribbean Stud Poker, American Roulette and Video Poker.

"CryptoLogic has a stellar line up of branded gaming content, and today's launch of Street Fighter IV and these other innovative games strengthens our competitive advantage," said Justin Thouin, CryptoLogic's Vice President.

Boasting more than 280 games, CryptoLogic has one of the most comprehensive casino suites on the Internet today with games featuring some of the world's most famous action and entertainment characters. CryptoLogic has earned rave reviews from industry peers and players alike, and in 2009 earned Gambling Online Magazine's Top Casino Software award for the fourth consecutive year. Based on the votes of players around the world, it is widely considered the industry's top honour.
