> Worldwide Online Payment Solutions Support Operators and Players with the
Secure Flow of Real Money Trade

Tuesday 16th June 2009 - NEOVIA Financial Plc (LSE: NEO), the independent
global online payments business, announces the launch of its services for
the Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming (MMOG) market by providing a secure
global payment solution that supports real world trading for virtual
products and services. As part of this initiative NEOVIA also confirms a
recent contract win with leading MMOG publisher MindArk, operator of the
leading virtual world Entropia Universe.

The real money trading on and around MMOG sites represents a multi-billion
dollar global market. It is estimated users’ spend on such MMOG sites will
increase to $9bn(1), including subscriptions, virtual land, retail products
and services by 2010 (2). Games Investor Consulting, an industry analyst,
has predicted the micropayments market for multiplayer role-playing games
will grow by 40% to 50% in 2009.(3)

To manage the flow of this money between the operator, retailers and
players, the enhanced NEOVIA Payment Suite has a raft of capabilities
ideally suited for the demands of the MMOG market. The products support
local deposit options as well as local languages and currencies for key
countries. This means increased and efficient penetration into emerging
territories for MMOG operators, supporting countries where credit cards have
limited use online and non-card payments types are preferred such as iDEAL
in the Netherlands, giropay in Germany and Carte Bleue in France.

Retailers and operators can rely on NEOVIA for effective fraud control and
anti-money laundering policies, and players benefit by using the NETELLER
e-wallet, part of the NEOVIA Payment Suite, which allows them to spend
securely online without revealing their card details.

Due to small transaction values and high fees, players are not easily
liquidate or transfer their “virtual assets” outside a game, plus virtual
assets are non-transferable as only a few sites offer easy methods to
cash-out. To overcome this, NEOVIA has enhanced its e-wallet micro-payment
capabilities to support the multiplayer/video online gaming industry.

For additional revenue stream generation and cross-selling opportunities,
NEOVIA also offers its Merchant Co-branding Program. This allows operators
and merchants to acquire new, extend value from active, or reactivate
dormant customers. It provides conversion-landing pages, co-branded
e-wallets and targeted special offers.

Jan Welter Timkrans, CEO of MindArk, said: “NEOVIA’s payment solutions will
help enhance and expand Entropia Universe as the leading virtual platform
for entertainment, commerce and avatar development. The enhanced NEOVIA
Payment Suite will enable our users to develop and extend their e-commerce
activities within Entropia Universe.”

Dan Starr, Executive Vice President, NEOVIA said: “With this significant new
version we believe we are offering the broadest and best global Payment
Suite on the market. NEOVIA is ideally suited to support these types of
payments and the MMOG market. We have proven ability to support online
merchants and because our NETELLER e-wallet can be used with thousands of
entertainment and retail sites, players can take their money and spend it
elsewhere. We look forward to working with MindArk and further developing
our relationship with additional product enhancements for Entropia
Universe."
