The Board of Jackpotjoy plc (the "Board") has noted the portion of votes against the re-election of David Danziger and Paul Pathak as Directors of the Company. Neil Goulden, Chairman of the Company, commented: "Paul and David are active and valuable members of our Board who have played an integral role in the transformative London listing of the Company and continue to make valuable contributions to the Board during this period of change for the Company, particularly in light of the ongoing listing of the Intertain exchangeable shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the associated regulatory requirements.  I have appreciated their input on these and other matters and look forward to continuing to work with them as we complete our transition to the UK. We value the feedback of all our shareholders, and we will continue to engage with our shareholders and other stakeholders on! matters relating to our corporate governance, which we take very seriously. Pending the conclusion of the exchangeable share structure, the Board will evaluate its composition and appointment of new UK-based Directors as necessary."

Notes: 

Votes "For" and "Against" are expressed as a percentage of the total votes received.

A "Vote withheld" is not treated as a vote in law and would not be counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes cast "For" or "Against" a resolution.

The current issued share capital of the Company consists of 73,836,099 ordinary shares of 10 pence each, carrying one vote each.  Therefore, the total number of ordinary shares in the Company with voting rights is 73,836,099.

In accordance with the Listing Rule 14.3.6 copies of all resolutions other than resolutions concerning ordinary business passed at the Company's Annual General Meeting will be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM.
