Newcom Technologies Pty. Ltd., Australia, and Betting Inc./Electronic
Transactions and Technologies, USA, to Demonstrate Secure Pay/Play
Wager With a GSM Mobile Phone from England to Australia

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 15, 1998--Agreement struck to demonstrate first real time GSM (Global System for Mobiles) cash pay- per-play smart card international wagering from England to Australia.

Newcom Technologies of Australia, and Electronic Transactions and Technologies and Betting Inc. (OTC/BB:BETT - news), of the United States, have negotiated an agreement to demonstrate a secure pay-per-play wager with a GSM phone, calling from England to place a $100 card- authenticated bet in Australia.

At the Mobile Commerce '98 Conference held in London on June 23 and 24, ET&T and Betting Inc., using the Newcom Platform, will pass a GSM SMS (short message service) message to the ET&T bank host server detailing a $100 smart-card bet.

The ET&T server will then pass the message and payment-complete command to Betting Inc., which will use the Internet to carry the encrypted SMS message to the waiting gaming operator in Australia. The operator in turn will acknowledge placement of such wager to Betting Inc. which will inform ET&T. ET&T will then command a nearby fax machine to print a receipt.

The phone being used will emulate the Pocket Pay which ET&T will be developing and which will act as a pocket-sized terminal for financial cards of any type such as ATM cards or smart cards, and may also be used as a regular voice phone.

''The agreement brings a complete package to potential gaming partners of ET&T and Betting Inc. in various countries. It uses either ET&T's patented Pocket Pay equipment or a commerce-enabled mobile phone,'' said Tom Hughes, chief executive officer of ET&T and Betting Inc.

''The Newcom phone solution which interfaces with gaming operators through ET&T and Betting Inc. demonstrates the deliverability of a product that is market ready today,'' stated Keith Benson, CEO of Newcom.

Newcom Technologies Pty. Ltd. has developed an open platform for use on any Phase 2+ GSM mobile telephone to allow secure electronic commerce and card-service functionality. Newcom's Web site is located at newcom.com.au.

Betting Inc. is focused on interfacing between bank host processing centers receiving such electronic cash payments and the gaming operators. ET&T is a developer of new types of terminals to originate such transactions and is focused as the bank host processing center to process such transactions. The company's Web site is located at www.hpos.com.

Betting Inc. Defines its Mission
biz.yahoo.com

For the Record...

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 18, 1998--The business of Betting Inc. [OTC BB:BETT - news] is to facilitate PERFECT wagering transactions between the players and the gaming operators.

A PERFECT wager is a personal encrypted transaction that is originating from a remote site such as a home or office or car and which is encrypted and is either ATM card or value-added smart card authenticated. These are real-time electronic cash transactions for the gaming operator.

Wagers will originate from competing landline, wireless or computer equipment.

These PERFECT devices will be given away as with the Shop While You Wait application or will be aggressively mass marketed to the consumer by the phone or utility industry as a method to pay bills from home without writing checks or to purchase without giving a credit card to an operator.

It is the contention of Betting Inc. that many competing types of PERFECT equipment will flood into the marketplace such as the ET&T Pay Master (web site:hpos.com) and that consumers will pay bills, send donations, purchase or wager with these devices.

The business of Betting Inc. is to provide a service interface between the bank host processing centers such as ET&T who are processing these incoming PERFECT wagers by smart card or ATM card and the gaming operators who need to acknowledge receipt of payment to the host processing centers. Betting Inc. is paid a fee per transaction for this service. No accounts receivable.

Since the PERFECT wager is bank to bank, then instant government taxation of the player's winnings being sent by the gaming operator's bank to the player's bank is a reality.

The massive marketing forces of industries pushing to save substantial costs by cutting back on receiving bill payment by checks from their banked customers, closing walk-in bill payment locations for their non-banked customers who will now use PERFECT equipment and value-added smart cards from their homes to pay bills, combined with instant taxation of PERFECT wagering winnings in developed countries, will drive PERFECT equipment to give aways and will allow the average consumer PERFECT wagering on a global basis by 2001.

The mission of Betting Inc. is to establish a global PERFECT wagering presence and to service the first multibillion-dollar pool international PERFECT game occurring on the same day between participating countries.

First GSM Phase 2 + Mobile Phone, England-to- Australia, Pay-Per-Play,
Smart-Card-Wagering Transaction Successfully Completed

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 24, 1998--Newcom Technologies Pty Ltd. (Australia) from the Dorchester Hotel, London, at the MOBILE COMMERCE '98 conference, has successfully sent a pay-per-play, $100 smart-card bet to CentreBet, an Australian International sports book operator.

The wagering transaction was authenticated by ET&T.

ET&T received this transaction from Newcom's Funge Proprietary Platform for GSM Phase 2 + mobile phones and passed on the completed transaction to Betting Inc. (OTC/BB:BETT), which then successfully alerted CentreBet that the transaction had occurred.

Acknowledgment of this wager was sent back from CentreBet to Betting Inc. and ET&T.

ET&T commanded a nearby fax machine to print out the receipt.

The implication of this pay-per-play transaction is that gaming operators could be closing down sports accounts and overheads to accept pay-per-play wagering instead.

Successful testing:

ET&T received this transaction from Newcom's Funge Proprietary Platform for GSM Phase 2 + mobile phones and passed on the completed transaction to Betting Inc. (OTC/BB:BETT), which then successfully alerted CentreBet that the transaction had occurred.

Acknowledgment of this wager was sent back from CentreBet to Betting Inc. and ET&T.

ET&T commanded a nearby fax machine to print out the receipt.

Bett's Defined business:

The implication of this pay-per-play transaction is that gaming operators could be closing down sports accounts and overheads to accept pay-per-play wagering instead.

The start-up company's story is unfolding. First test. Defined business and marketing plan. Two possible ideas of there next move. Continued testing within the US or Global, and possibility of a partnership for a JV with another enterprise.

IMHO Betting Inc has not hurt anyones pocket book. A few day traders with track 2 video game capability. The share value is not high nor is it where I purchased, and no intention of being scared out of my shares, or selling anytime soon. Go BETT.

Best wishes:)

To All,
This is a continuation of Tom Hughes' speech in London on June 23, 1998.
"PROBABLE EVOLUTION OF THE PERFECT MARKET
"PERFECT equipment, which will eventually be made by many different companies, will be agressively promoted and marketed by utility, cale, publishing, insurance, health and other industries. Expect participation from any business that will enjoy reduced costs and added revenues from a customer base that can send real time purchases or payments electronically, with the payment by ATM card and smart cards or making payments with card present credit cards. With this kind of incentive to deployment, PERFECT equipment will be flooding into the homes across the globe.
"WAGERING
"What will happen once the average consumer suddenly finds herself capable of placing a real time lottery wager at 1AM in the morning from the safety of her bed? What will happen as state and national legislatures suddenly realize that since the PERFECT transaction occurred from the sending bank to the Lottery bank then it would be an easy matter to simply tax the winnings, before sending back the balance to the winner's bank? The answer is a global explosion of mass market PERFECT wagering. Without doubt, the main method of PERFECT wagering in much of the developed and developing countries will be wagering by mobile commerce. Equipment such as the Pocket Pay will be the method of choice to send pay per play real time wagers to the gaming operators.
"Betting Inc. is focused on being the interface or gate of choice that the bank host processing certers such as ET&T rely upon to alert the gaming operators that they have been paid on the pay per play basis and for them to respond back with an acknowledgment of such completed transactions.
"NEWCOM TELENOLOGIES AND BETT ALLIANCE - A COMPLETE SYSTEM
"Keith Benson, CEO of Newcom Technologies, will be speaking to you later this afternoon. Newcom and Betting Inc. have formed an alliance to develop mobile ewlectronic wagering on a global basis.
"Newcom has developed a proprietary operating system called the Funge, which can turn any mobile digital hpone into a transaction device that can send receive data to perform purchases, bill payments, etc., with payment accomplished via a value added smart card, ATM card with PIN, or credit card. Keith will go into more details of the Funge system operation; but basically, a Realm Vector Protocal underlies the Funge and creates a new key per transaction and creates a very secure environment for mobile real time cash wagering.
"In our demonstration in booth #2, we will demonstrate the Funge and Newcom's server, ET&T, and BETT working together to accomplish a pay per play transaction from a Siemens mobile phone. Newcom's server will relay the message from the GSM system to ET&T, over the internet; ET&T will act as the financial processing gateway to the banking industry, driving authorization and payment for the transaction; and BETT will act as the gateway to the gaming operators, who need to know and to acknowledge when a PERFECT wager has occurred.
"The three companies are joining together (The Alliance) to specifically focus on global wagering along with many other mobile commerce applications. It is the stated purpose of Newcom, Betting Inc. and ET&T (the Alliance) to aggressively market a completed package to strategic partners and countries who are interested in the potential of moving real time non reversible cash as a gaming or purchase or bill pay transaction.
"ET&T and Newcom Technologies will jointly enter into the global market arena, position our bank host processing certer to drive or process mobile phone transactions which have been enabled by the Newcom Funge technology.
"Betting Inc. will drive communication lines to the gaming operators in that specific country and will receive commands of "bank transaction complete" from our bank host processing center and will forward such message to the gaming operators for an acknowledgment. The stated goal of Betting Inc. is to act as the gateway of choice for other PERFECT bankk hosts to use when running a PERFECT wagering transaction.
"The stated goal of the alliance is to position ourselves to enjoy a substantial market share of the projected 250 billion dollars global PERFECT wagering market of 2001.
"THE POCKET PAY
"The Alliance has the US Patent rights for this device, and is looking for a strategic partner to help develop and market the product. Remember, the Pocket Py is combination terminal and phone that fits into you pocket, and can provide security and convenience
by holding card numbers, access information, etc. in memory. A user can load access data and account numbers for multiple cards or systems into the Pocket Pay using a special reader (or PC cable) that attaches to the Pocket Pay and can then be detached. The user can then access that data using a PIN or other secure access, without having to carry multiple cards with them.
