EA HELPS PLAYERS GO FROM RAGS TO RICHES WITH LOTTSO! DELUXE EA’s Casual Gaming Site Pogo.com Answers the Question, “What if the Lotto and Bingo had a Baby?” Redwood City, Calif. – August 6, 2007 – Match, Scratch and Win! From EA’s (NASDAQ: ERTS) Casual Games site Pogo.comTM comes Lottso! Deluxe, a fast paced bingo-meets-lottery strategy game that will have players racing to fill their lottery scratchers before time runs out. Bells chime, numbers swirl and laughter echoes as players complete a variety of simple quick-action challenges and climb the leader boards. This downloadable game is currently available at Pogo.com, broader online distribution, as well as retail stores nationwide. Lottso! Deluxe is a winning way to take a break from day-to-day stress, find some “me” time and become a high stakes casual gamer. Pogo VP and Executive Producer Andrew Pedersen said, “The idea for Lottso! Deluxe originally came from EA’s Chief Creative Officer and Club Pogo addict Bing Gordon. It is the perfect marriage of Bingo, one of the most popular casual games in the world, with the suspense and reward of lottery scratchers. Players young and old can enjoy the excitement of racing against the clock to be the first to fill their game cards with Lottso! balls to reveal the score they earned.” As a bonus, Pogo players will be able to unlock extra Lottso! Deluxe features including online play against their friends on Pogo. While online, players can chat, amass tokens, earn badges and collect special charms to enhance their status on Pogo. Play your cards right and you just may see your name in lights! For more information and to experience some of the best online games on the Internet, visit www.pogo.com.
