MyLotto24 Ltd, a fully consolidated minority holding of Tipp24 SE, has
declared a jackpot payout of EUR 11.7 million on 15 May 2010 in a secondary
lottery it organized.

Including the above jackpot prize, the amount of winnings payouts for
secondary lotteries as of 15 May 2010 was EUR 19.3 million in total above
the statistical average. This has resulted so far in a negative revenue
effect of the same amount and a negative EBIT effect of EUR 17.1 million.

Taken alone, this would result in a reduction of expected revenue and
earnings. However, these negative effects may be offset by winnings payouts
during the remaining months of the current fiscal year which are well below
the statistical average, or by significantly increased stakes received due
to a very high jackpot. In view of the statistical fluctuations inherent in
such a business model, it is too early at present to make a specific
forecast update. Tipp24 SE plans to update its forecast as scheduled as
part of its half-yearly financial report.
