All amounts in Canadian Dollars

Parlay Entertainment Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PEI) ("Parlay" or the "Company"), announced today that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent dated January 11, 2008 related to a proposed transaction by PEIC Acquisition Corp. (the "Purchaser") to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of the Company by way of a statutory plan of arrangement.

The proposed transaction is subject to satisfactory completion of due diligence by the Purchaser, the execution of a definitive agreement, court approval, regulatory approval, and the approval of both the board of directors and the shareholders of Parlay. The letter of intent includes a binding exclusivity provision whereby Parlay will not solicit or initiate competing acquisition proposals or participate in negotiations or discussions which may be ongoing with respect to a similar transaction with any third party until January 30, 2008. The exclusivity provision does not impact on Parlay's ability to respond to a superior proposal, should one be presented at any time. The letter of intent also includes a binding provision requiring Parlay to pay the out of pocket legal, tax and accounting costs and expenses of the Purchaser (and its owner) of up to $500,000 Cdn., except where the transaction is terminated by the Purchaser in certain limited circumstances.

The non-binding terms of the letter of intent provide that all shareholders of Parlay would receive approximately $0.95 Cdn. cash for each of their shares of Parlay, except for certain shareholders (which would include certain members of management) as agreed to by the Purchaser and Parlay, who, in lieu of this cash consideration, would receive shares of the Purchaser in exchange for their shares of Parlay.

There can be no assurance that any definitive agreement will be entered into, that any proposed transaction will be approved by the shareholders of Parlay or that any transaction will be completed as a result of the execution of the letter of intent.

The Company has constituted a special committee, which is comprised of the independent directors of Parlay (the "Special Committee"). The Special Committee will engage a financial advisor, who will review the fairness of the proposed transaction from a financial point of view.
