(TSX VENTURE:DNY)(OTCBB:DNYFF) today announced that it has signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with Shanda Interactive Entertainment Ltd., (NASDAQ:SNDA) China's leading interactive entertainment media company. This LOI will facilitate an exchange of information between the two companies, leading to the licensing of Dynasty's MahjongMania software by Shanda.

About Dynasty Gaming Inc.

In cooperation with Beijing-based 95Joy, Dynasty Gaming, through its wholly owned subsidiaries, is aggressively pursuing agreements with major companies in the People's Republic of China for the development, marketing and distribution of government-approved online applications for its proprietary Mahjong software.

Success to date includes the establishment of a relationship with Beijing Junnet Science and Technology Company Limited (www.junnet.cn), one of the largest prepaid card distributors in China, for the marketing and distribution of prepaid cards for accessing a play-for-points version of Mahjong on sites in China. Dynasty has also entered into a formal agreement with Sohu.com Inc. (www.sohu.com), one of China's most widely used interactive online sources for information, entertainment and communications incorporating a leading portal with more than 100 million registered users.

Dynasty's relationship with Sun Media Investment Holdings Ltd. (www.chinasunmedia.com), China's largest privately owned multi-media provider, represents a powerful channel through which to create enhanced awareness of an online version of Mahjong, a national sport in China. An agreement with Las Vegas From Home.com Entertainment Inc. (www.lvfh.com) allows Dynasty to provide all of its marketing channel partners with its own Mahjong game together with LVFH's full suite of popular Asian-style specialty games. Competition for seats at a World Cup of Mahjong event to be held in Macau, PRC, will serve as an incentive for a large universe of players.

Dynasty Gaming's 92.3 million common shares, issued and outstanding, are widely held by Canadian and U.S. investors. Full information on Dynasty Gaming can be found at www.dynastygaming.com and at SEDAR (www.sedar.com) under Dynasty Gaming Inc.
