January 31, 2013

SLIEMA, Malta, January 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Fans of poker have a new avenue to follow their favorite players through an innovative
fantasy game developed by Zokay Entertainment, owner of the Global Poker Index (GPI). The
Fantasy Poker Manager is a free social game powered by the GPI and is now available on
Facebook. The Fantasy Poker Manager offers poker fans everywhere a simple to learn and
easy to use fantasy game based on live poker tournaments, providing the opportunity to
engage with other fans and poker professionals alike. The Fantasy Poker Manager will help
bring a new level of excitement and interaction to live poker tournaments, which is core
to the mission of the Global Poker Index. “The Fantasy Poker Manager fills an important
spot in the poker community, acting as a bridge between online poker, social poker, and
live tournament poker”, said CEO Alex Dreyfus. “It will help promote poker as the sport
that it is and will bring the fans and professionals of poker closer together. The Fantasy
Poker Manager is a natural extension for the GPI, which is the best and most well
recognized ranking system of poker players worldwide.”


The Fantasy Poker Manager allows a user to create a team of up to 10 players, among
the most famous names and top-ranked, using a virtual budget of $1,000,000. The price of
each player is based on the player’s GPI ranking as well as the players popularity among
other users of the Fantasy Poker Manager. Points are scored every time one of the players
on the team finishes in the money in a live poker tournament. The Fantasy Poker Manager
will feature events all over the world (including World Series of Poker and World Poker
Tour) allowing teams to play nearly every week of the year. In addition to building teams
that virtually compete around the globe, some of the exciting features of the game are the
ability to challenge friends in one on one contests, set up private leagues with a group
of friends, and research and follow poker players performance.

The Fantasy Poker Manager is making its debut launch on Facebook and takes advantage
of many of Facebook’s popular and familiar features, while also integrating unique content
through the Global Poker Index. The game will be targeted to the 40 million people who
regularly play fantasy sports games and the 50 million people who play online poker on
Facebook and other sites. Additional features of the game, as well as a mobile version,
will be made available over the coming months.

In the six months since its acquisition by Zokay Entertainment, the GPI has been
solidified as the live tournament poker ranking authority worldwide. Zokay plans to
continue developing the GPI as the premiere tool and ranking system for the poker
industry, with the expectation of making a significant investment in promoting poker and
the GPI across the globe in an effort to establish industry standards for the
multi-billion dollar live poker industry. Expect many exciting announcements from Zokay
Entertainment and the Global Poker Index in the months to come.
