Italy’s BetPlus Selects Octavian VLT System to Manage Large-Scale Comma6B Gaming Operations

February 3, 2010

LONDON, February 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Octavian Global
Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: OCTV) (“Octavian”), a leading provider of total
gaming and lottery solutions, serving Casino, AWP (Amusements With Prizes),
Lottery and emerging gaming market sectors worldwide, announced it has signed
a 10-year contract with BetPlus (B PLUS GIOCOLEGALE LTD) for the deployment
of the Octavian Symphony VE system to manage large-scale Comma6B-regulated
AWP gaming operations across Italy.

BetPlus is the largest gaming concessionaire operating in Italy’s AWP
market, which is strictly controlled by the Italian Government’s AAMS
(Autonomous Administration of State Monopolies) and its Comma6 regulations.

BetPlus will deploy the centralised Octavian Symphony VE (VLT Edition)
system to link gaming machines at multiple AWP venues across Italy and meet
the latest Comma6B requirements. Initially around 12,000 machines will be
connected, but the highly scalable system offers virtually limitless scope to
connect further sites and machines.

The Symphony VE system is the latest development of Octavian’s Symphony
system, proven over many years to enable rapid roll-out and high-reliability
management of wide-area gaming networks comprising tens of thousands of EGMs.
As well as providing flexible monitoring, accounting and reporting functions
to control gaming machine operations, the Symphony VE system offers
significant scope for business development through player tracking and
wide-area multiple progressive jackpots. In addition, the system will enable
BetPlus venues to offer Comma6B games from Octavian, as well as games from
all the major games brands serving this market.

Commenting on the decision to select the Octavian system, Arturo
Vespignani
, COO of BetPlus, said: “With the introduction of Comma6B brought
forward by the AAMS, we needed a systems provider with a proven track record
in the rapid deployment and ongoing support of large-scale gaming management
systems. Further, we needed strong knowledge of the European AWP market, and
systems flexibility to enable the business to quickly adapt to future
regulatory developments. Octavian’s Symphony VE system will allow us to meet
these requirements and more in a fast-changing and very exciting market.”

Peter Moffitt, President of Octavian, added: “Having faced very strong
competition from other major systems suppliers, we are delighted to have been
selected by BetPlus, the leading operator in this market. The agreement is
another systems landmark for Octavian and further strengthens our position in
the Italian AWP market.”

The roll-out of the new Comma6B-compliant system is expected to take
place over the next three to four months and the agreement between BetPlus
and Octavian is for an initial period of 10 years.

In parallel with the system deployment, Octavian is porting many of its
highly successful Comma6A games titles (which regularly feature amongst the
top 10 performing titles in this market) to Comma6B.
