----------------------------------------------------------------------

FLUXX AG (DE000A0JRU67), Altenholz, is extending the partnership with the
discount drugstore SCHLECKER that has previously focused on the internet.
Lottery sales at the till are currently being piloted at 400 SCHLECKER
stores in the Krefeld region. If the test proves a success, the technology
will be installed at all 14,000 SCHLECKER retail outlets throughout Europe.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Information and Explaination of the Issuer to this News:

SCHLECKER customers have already been able to play the lottery on the
internet since October 2006. Following the successful internet launch, the
product will now become available at retail outlets. Various possible forms
of integration will be tested in 2007. Playing the lottery at the till is
currently being piloted at 400 SCHLECKER retail outlets in the Krefeld
region.

SCHLECKER IT Director Ingo Naumann explained: 'Our till connections and
central network of all 14,000 outlets throughout Europe are tailormade for
connecting up all manner of features. Services for our customers such as
playing the lottery, prepaid top-ups for mobile phones, credit card
transactions and other customer services can be realised immediately by
virtue of having the biggest network of retail outlets in Europe.' The
existing till infrastructure and SCHLECKER's data lines are used. 'Assuming
the test proves a success, the concept will be rolled out in all outlets
throughout Europe,' added SCHLECKER Marketing Director Uwe Blank.
 
JAXX GmbH, a subsidiary of FLUXX AG, is its partner for this trial.
'SCHLECKER offers the ideal infrastructure for our JAXX Lottery Service',
explained Rainer Jacken, Management Board spokesman of FLUXX AG. 'As the
biggest quality provider in the German drugstore retail trade, SCHLECKER
has precisely the target group that we want our service to reach.'

In its JAXX Lottery Service, JAXX GmbH has launched an innovative concept –
the only one of its kind in Europe, in fact – for selling lottery products
in shops. Whereas the principle of how to play remains unchanged for the
customer – they simply choose six numbers out of 49 – the new concept
brings decisive benefits for the retailer. The lottery ticket is paid for
at the till along with the customer's shopping, and winnings are
automatically transferred to the customer's account. Paying for a lottery
ticket is thus fully integrated into the everyday shopping process, and the
transaction can be handled easily, conveniently and reliably at any
SCHLECKER till.
