Business Editors

Malta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 3, 2006--Expekt.com, one of Europe's leading online betting sites, today took another step furthering its ambition to become Europe's no 1 with the introduction of its sports betting service to the world's most popular motorsports, through a new partnership with the World Rally Championship (WRC).

Expekt.com has worked together with WRC to create a multi-platform live betting facility that can be accessed directly from the WRC website, signing a two-year-deal with Expekt.com as the WRC's chosen partner.

Marten Forste, Head of Partnerships, Expekt.com, says: "From experience, we already know that the potential for online betting on your favourite sport is huge. Rallying is massively popular worldwide, and a natural addition to our sports betting service, which already embraces a full range of sports from football, tennis and golf through to the Olympic Games. With this official link to the WRC and other developments to come Expekt.com intends to become known as the leading motor sports betting site."

The multi-faceted betting platform has been created by digital rights company, Premium TV, and will feature competitive odds on every rally from Expekt.com. Expekt.com and Premium TV will also help rally fans follow every step of WRC events on their mobile phones with up-to-the-minute updates from the races.

Expekt customers are now able to bet on every WRC and Formula 1 championship round, and on the overall championships for drivers and manufacturers. Other features will be added as the service develops. In addition to outright winners, head to head betting, under which you back one driver to beat another, is also expected to be a popular feature. You can also bet on the winning margin in each WRC round. Stage by stage betting and other facilities are expected to follow.
