Paf Signs License Agreement with Parlay


Parlay5 technology will support Paf’s international expansion strategy

MARIEHAMN, ÅLAND, FINLAND and OAKVILLE, CANADA - Parlay Entertainment Inc. (TSXV: PEI) is pleased to announce the completion of an agreement with Ålands Penningautomatförening (Paf) to license its Parlay5 gaming platform. The agreement will enable Paf to upgrade its online bingo and soft gaming offerings to take advantage of Parlay5’s advanced international capabilities. The launch is planned for Q1 2011.

“International expansion and providing our customers with a broad range of excellent content are of strategical importance to Paf,” said Anders Ingves, Paf’s CEO. “We chose Parlay because of their proven track record in delivering in those areas. Their industry leading software solutions will support our strategic expansion throughout Europe.”

Paf is a reputable organisation that has offered safe and entertaining gaming for the last 40 years. Paf’s gaming products are offered on the Internet, on board ship and on Åland and include slot machines, bingo and lotteries, poker, casino games, skill games and betting. The proceeds from the gaming organization go to various good causes. Paf’s online gaming systems are hosted in Åland, an autonomous region of Finland, from where the company has offered online gaming as a public association since 1999.

“We are delighted that Paf has chosen Parlay as its gaming technology provider for bingo and soft games,” said Perry Malone, CTO and Co-Founder of Parlay. “And we are very pleased to work with an organization which has such an excellent reputation with players and does so much good by way of the different good causes it supports.”

Several of Paf’s own proprietary games will be included in the launch on the Parlay5 platform. These unique games have been perennial favourites and excellent performers in the Nordic market. Paf will also leverage the liquidity of the Parlay Game Services network in Alderney to add the excitement of larger jackpots for its players.

Paf will initially launch the games in English, Finnish, Swedish, German and Spanish with other languages to follow.
