World Gaming plc changed World Gaming's trading symbol
By staff
London, UK August 28

World Gaming plc, a global pioneer in I-gaming technologies,

announced that the OTC BB has changed World Gaming's trading symbol

from WGMGY to WGMGE, indicating late filing of its financial

results. It is World Gaming's position after advice from legal

counsel, that as a foreign issuer, the company has a maximum six

month period to file its financial results, giving the company

until October 31, 2001 to file its April 30, 2001 year end results.

World Gaming is currently in discussion with the NASDAQ to rectify

this issue.

'World Gaming has recently undergone a reorganization including

re-domiciling in the United Kingdom and a change to the company's

financial year,' said Rodney Davis, CFO, who was appointed in July

2001. 'It has been our intention to file our year end statements

for the period ended April 30, 2001 prior to the end of September.

Therefore, regardless of the result of our discussions with the

NASDAQ, the company will be filing within the next 30 days and will

maintain its OTC BB listing.'
