LONDON, 16 January 2002- SunOnline Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sun

International Hotels Limited, a leading international resort and gaming

company, and lastminute.com, the online provider of travel and leisure

solutions, announced a partnership today to provide online casino gambling

to the over 2 million UK registered users and other visitors to the

lastminute.com site. Sun International will use its extensive knowledge of

the global gaming consumer and unique Casino Atlantis Online product

(www.casinoatlantis.com ) to provide secure

gambling to lastminute.com users.


Links will be provided on the lastminute.com website and will allow

customers to click straight through to Casino Atlantis Online. In addition

the casino product will be promoted via the 'staying in' section on the

lastminute.com site and to lastminute.com subscribers.


Tobin Prior, CEO of SunOnline commented, 'We are confident that Casino

Atlantis Online will appeal to lastminute.com's customers who are attracted

to similar products on the site and are accustomed to transacting online.

Clicking through to Casino Atlantis will be a virtual trip to our flagship

resort and casino in the Bahamas of the same name, and the next best thing

to organising a last minute trip there. lastminute.com is one of the most

visited travel sites in Europe and, as such, an excellent place for

SunOnline to have a presence.'


Helen Baker, UK Managing Director, lastminute.com said, 'We are always

looking for new revenue streams that are relevant to our brand and of

interest to our customers and gambling fits our offering well as part of the

recently launched 'staying-in'section. SunOnline are market leaders when it

comes to providing safe, keenly regulated and fair online gambling and we

are pleased to partner with them in offering this new product to visitors to

the lastminute.com site.'
