Tipp24 Annual Shareholders' Meeting adopts dividend

(Hamburg, 16 June 2009) The Annual Shareholders' Meeting of Tipp24 AG was
held at the InterContinental Hotel Hamburg on 16 June 2009. Approximately
55.16 percentof voting capital was represented.

Fiscal year 2008 was dominated by the drastic effects of the German State
Treaty on Gaming and the lack of significant jackpots, as well as by
start-up costs for the expansion of the company's international business
and its new Skill-Based Games division. Billings fell slightly, while EBIT
and revenue remained stable at the prior-year level.

As a result of this generally satisfactory development, it was proposed at
the Annual Shareholders' Meeting to pay a dividend once again of 50 cents
per share.

As the legal situation in Germany is still unsettled, Tipp24 AG decided to
largely discontinue its operating business in Germany at the beginning of
2009. CEO Jens Schumann explains: 'We feel that we were forced into this
move by the German government. Both the sale of our foreign companies and
the drastic job cuts in Hamburg are consequences of the State Treaty on
Gaming, against which we shall continue to take legal action.'

The Annual Shareholders' Meeting approved the proposals of the board of
directors and the supervisory board regarding all agenda items.
