A Mutual Effort to Realize the Full Financing for the Construction of the Dream Island Project, Manama, Bahrain

Strategic Internet Investments, Incorporated, (the "Company or SIII"), (OTCBB:SIII) is pleased to announce that through the efforts of its CFO, Mr. Abbas Salih, Star Leisure and Entertainment Inc. ("Star Leisure"), (an affiliate and related company to SIII), has entered into a Letter of Intent (the "LOI") with Dexia Private Banking ("Dexia") wherein the parties to the LOI have agreed to undertake a mutual effort in order to realize full financing for the Dream Island Project in Manama, Bahrain.

SIII has the right to purchase 80% of the outstanding share capital of Gulf Star World Development W.L.L. of Bahrain ("Gulf Star") from Star Leisure. Gulf Star is the owner of the Dream Island Project (see previous news releases dated July 12, 2002 for additional information).

The LOI contemplates that the Company and Star Leisure will coordinate the efforts of the investment partners, (contacts of the Company) and Dexia will be responsible to build the financial structure and to act as lender to that structure.

In addition, the Company has undertaken to complete agreements with chosen construction company contractors that will be the primary contractors for the construction of the Dream Island project infrastructure and facilities and arrange for approximately 30% of the construction costs to be paid through the issuance of equity shares of the Company.

The LOI will be valid until a pre commitment agreement among the investment partners and Dexia has been completed prior to October 30th, 2005 after which time formal agreements between Dexia, Star Leisure and the Company will be completed.

Company management cautions both shareholders and investors, that although there are no assurances that the conditions of the LOI can be met thereby allowing formal agreements to be completed, management is confident that it will achieve the objectives of the LOI and thereby move closer to realizing the full financing for the construction of the Dream Island Project.
