Lotto24 AG: Successful Cash Capital Increase at a 20% Premium

Not for distribution or release in or into the United States of America,
Australia, Canada or Japan, or in any other jurisdiction in which offers or
sales would be prohibited by applicable law.

(Hamburg, 21 October 2014) Lotto24 AG has increased its share capital by
EUR 1,996,271 from EUR 19,962,720 to EUR 21,958,991 against cash
contributions through the partial exercise of the company's Authorised
Capital as adopted by the Annual General Meeting of 21 May 2014 and under
the exclusion of shareholder subscription rights. The 1,996,271 new,
registered, no-par value shares were placed entirely with two significant
investors of Lotto24 AG, Othello Vier Beteiligungs GmbH & Co. KG, a company
of the Günther Group, as well as Jens Schumann, at a price of EUR 3.00 per
new share. The placement price exceeds the volume weighted average price of
the Lotto24 shares on the day prior to the capital increase by nearly 20%.
Both investors have expressed their firm interest in supporting the company
also with regard to possible fund raisings in the future.

The company will receive gross proceeds from the capital increase of EUR
5.99 million. Lotto24 AG intends to use the net proceeds from the capital
increase to conduct marketing activities aimed at accelerating the
acquisition of new customers. Proceeds are also to be used for expansion of
the product portfolio to include additional lotteries.

The new shares are to be admitted for trading on the regulated market
(Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange without a prospectus.
M.M.Warburg & CO (AG & Co.) KGaA has advised on the capital increase.
