Face Up Entertainment Group, Inc. in Discussions to Introduce Rake Where Legal to Its Subscription Poker Platform

VALLEY STREAM, N.Y., April 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Face Up Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTCBB:FUEG), a Reality Gaming Social Network company, today announced that it has been in discussions with a handful of European companies interested in bringing Face Up Gaming's Audio/Video enabled and rake ready poker platform to Europe.

Yesterday, Zynga announced that it will roll out two real-money gambling titles, ZyngaPlusPoker and ZyngaPlusCasino, in the U.K. later this week and that it has entered into an agreement with U.K. firm bwin.party. Face Up Entertainment Group has long been waiting to leverage the rake capabilities of its social subscription poker model platform.

"The agreement between Zynga and Bwin, announced only yesterday, validates the importance of delivering more than just the ability to wager on-line. Gaming companies are realizing the value of aligning social gaming and their communities along with a safe environment to participate in wager based poker play. Our platform was designed with this in mind. We are ready to take on this challenge and opportunity, as it has been an integral part of our long term strategy from day one of our development three years ago," stated Felix Elinson, the Company's CEO.

"Zynga is a well established and well funded company but we believe that with adequate funding, we can compete in this market. Our platform is robust," added Mr. Elinson.

The Company's game proprietary platform (www.FaceUpGaming.com) is being used in creating a vast global gaming network consisting of games from every region of the globe, supporting native languages as well as cross language functionality. Logical additions to the platform include global staples in gaming such as Backgammon, Poker, Chess and Checkers and many others. Face Up Gaming is a legal non-wagering online gaming platform (www.FaceUpGaming.com).

Face Up Entertainment Group, Inc. is committed to responsible game-play and is not a gambling site. "Our goal is to maintain the thrill of online games while keeping it safe for everyone. Our social networking functionality provides the user base with the ability to grow their circle of friends beyond those they physically reach day to day. Our users sit down to play a game and more often than not leave making a connection with a stranger which is then maintained via our social network functionalities," stated Mr. Elinson.
