GamingIndustryStocks.com -- Worldwide Online and Mobile Gambling Market Growth Expected to Continue

PartyGaming, WPT Technologies, CryptoLogic, and MGN Technologies Continue to Innovate to Satisfy Today's Online and Mobile Poker and Casino Player

POINT ROBERTS, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2006 -- www.GamingIndustryStocks.com (GIS) an investor and industry news portal for the gaming sector, features the 'Online and Mobile Gambling Market Momentum' (http://www.investorideas.com/Articles/Gambling_Market_Momentum.asp) report on the growing market for online and mobile gambling for investors and industry following the sector. Factors driving this sector and the legislative uncertainty that has continued are reviewed through perspectives from PartyGaming, WPT Technologies Inc., CryptoLogic Inc., and MGN Technologies. Insights are also revealed by Internet gaming attorney, Lawrence Walters and Brian Wright, Business Manager with the Remote Gambling Association.

PartyGaming (LSE: PRTY) flew into the spotlight with their highly successful IPO in the summer of 2005 making them London's biggest IPO in five years. Richard Segal, Chief Executive, describes product growth as an important driver to market growth, but one that finds itself second behind the power of cross-selling a variety of games to a common customer base.

Mark Jensen, CEO of MGN Technologies, d.b.a. Mobile Gaming Now (OTC BB: MGNLF), an online and mobile casino gaming software developer, explains further, "Broadband is a key market driver for both online and mobile games as it allows more information to be delivered at a faster rate. Online gaming will continue to grow because games are easier and more fun to play with a broadband connection.

Global perspectives are important for companies in this space. WPT Enterprises Inc. (NASDAQ: WPTE), creators of World Poker Tour, sees the internationalization of poker right now as their biggest driver for future growth, according to Todd Steele, Chief Financial Officer.

While legislative uncertainty continues to remain unresolved, actions in the UK have given much to be optimistic about. As Nancy Chan-Palmateer, Director, Communications with CryptoLogic Inc. (NASDAQ: CRYP), explains, "Brand name operators and games along with increasing government regulation such as we're seeing in the UK will be key drivers to foster a credible marketplace and spur further market growth of online gaming into mainstream online entertainment."
