Background Information

Pacific Lottery Corporation (PLC) (Formerly Applied Gaming Solutions Inc.) was founded in 1995 and is a publicly traded company on the TSX-Venture exchange, trading under the ticker symbol "LUK". The principal business of the Corporation is to research, develop, manufacture, operate and manage on-line lottery central systems. The corporations' focus is to supply technology and accompanying services for the proper conduct of jurisdictional wide on-line lottery operations.
The company is currently setting up a modern electronic lottery in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), Vietnam`s most populated and economically vibrant city and in the surrounding provinces. Under a ten year contract with the Vietnamese Government, Pacific Lottery will supply the central system equipment, hardware, software and accompanying lottery terminals, as well as provide the training and marketing support required for the implementation and proper operation of a modern online electronic lottery program (similar to 6/49 & Powerball lotteries) in the Ho Chi Minh City region. All the necessary hardware and software are currently being installed. Full operations are due to start in 2006 and the Lottery infrastructure should then progressively be rolled out to cover the entire country. Under the terms of the contract, Pacific Lottery will also set up and operate sports’ betting in Vietnam.
The intention is then to roll out the lottery to the rest of the country, encompassing at a later date the already up and running electronic lottery set up in Hanoi by Pacific Lottery in 1999.
