(FORMERLY PLAYSTAR CORPORATION) AND SUBSIDIARIES (A Development Stage Company) Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) Note 1. Basis of Presentation The financial statements included herein are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principals for financial reporting and Securities and Exchange Commission regulations. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management the financial statements reflect all adjustments (of a normal and recurring nature) which are necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Annual Report of PlayStar Wyoming Holding Corp. on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 1998. The results for the nine months ended March 31,1999 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending June 30, 1999. Note 2.

Since the effective time of the reorganization, PlayStar Wyoming has continued to conduct the business previously carried on by PlayStar Delaware.

Cyberstation will receive a base management fee of Cdn.$ 160,000 (US $105,000) per annum and a payment equal to 15% of the pre-tax profits of Players; and 10% of the pre-tax profits, in excess of certain thresholds as defined in the management agreement, of the Company.

Note 3. New Accounting Pronouncements In June 1997, the FASB issued SFAS No. 130, "Reporting Comprehensive Income," which is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 1997. This Statement establishes standards for reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in financial statements. The Statement is effective for PlayStar's financial statements commencing the year ending June 30, 1999. The adoption of this Statement will not have a material effect on PlayStar's financial statements. In June 1997, the FASB issued SFAS No. 131, "Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information," which is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 1997. This Statement establishes standards for the manner in which a public business enterprise reports certain information about operating segments and discloses enterprise-wide information about its products and services, activities in different geographic areas, and its reliance on major customers. The Statement is effective for PlayStar's financial statements commencing the year ending June 30, 1999. The adoption of this Statement will not have a material effect on PlayStar's financial statements. In June 1998, the FASB issued SFAS No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities," which is effective for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 1999. This statement establishes standards that require that all derivative instruments be recorded on the balance sheet at their fair value. This statement is effective for PlayStar's financial statements commencing the year ending June 30, 2000. The adoption of this statement will not have a material effect on PlayStar's financial statements. Note 4. Investment in 50% owned affiliate - NetEngine Corporation and License Shares issued at fair market value $.453125 Cyberstation Limited 5,000,000 shares $2,265,625 Fees 1,500,000 shares 679,687 Related costs 45,722 ---------- $2,991,034 Note 5. Computation of Net Loss per Common Share The Company adopted SFAS No. 128, "Earnings per Share". This statement requires that the Company report basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share for all periods reported. Basic net income (loss) per share is calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period, adjusted for the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents, consisting of dilutive common stock options and warrants using the treasury stock method. For all periods presented, common stock options and warrants are not included in the computation as they would be anti-dilutive. In the event that the Company was to report net income in future periods, these options and warrants aggregating 10,668,000 at March 31, 1999 could have a dilutive effect on future earnings per share calculations in those periods. Note 6. Possible Legislation in the United States Congress On July 23, 1998, the Senate passed an appropriations bill containing an amendment by Senator John Kyl of Arizona, which would prohibit gaming on the Internet in the United States. The proposed prohibition was not enacted into law in 1998, but it or a similar bill may be reintroduced shortly. Several similar bills were also introduced in the House of Representatives in the summer of 1998, and House Internet gaming legislation may be reintroduced this year as well. If legislation prohibiting gaming on the Internet is enacted into law, that legislation could have a significant effect on the Company's online gaming operations. If a law prohibiting Internet gaming passes, the Company's gaming subsidiaries (Limited and Casino) might be forced to cease all marketing and promotional activities in the United States to ensure that no solicitation of United States citizens occurs. If such legislation prohibits United States citizens from gaming on the Internet, the Company may be expected to lose a significant portion of its online gaming customers. Note 7. Restatement of 1997 Financial Information The financial statements as of June 30, 1997 and for the period October 3, 1996 (inception) to June 30, 1997 have been restated to comply with the requirements of APB No. 25 and SFAS 123. The effect of the correction with respect to the recording of stock options granted to employees and consultants during the period has been to increase development costs charged to operations by $461,000, and to increase employee compensation charged to operations by $682,500. In total, the effect of the restatement has been to charge operations $1,143,500 ($.08 per share). Note 8. Subsequent Events On April 8, 1999 Stuart Brazier joined the Company as its new President, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. At that time, Mr. Brazier was the beneficial owner of the remaining 50% of NetEngine not owned by the Company. He had underway negotiations involving millions of processing dollars and it was agreed that the Company would acquire his interest in NetEngine for 2,000,000 shares of its common stock (1,000,000, of which, would be not issued until January 8, 2000); and grant him an option to acquire an additional 500,000 shares of common stock at $1.25 until March 31, 2001. During May the Company agreed to acquire from Hanver Trust Company a 90% interest in VirtualCard PLC, a Nevis public liability company for 2,000,000 shares of its common stock plus an additional 100,000 shares in fees. Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis or Plan of Operation The information contained in this report on Form 10-QSB contains "forward looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. Actual results may materially differ from those projected in the forward looking statements as a result of certain risks and uncertainties set forth in this report. Although we believe that the assumptions made and expectations reflected in the forward looking statements are reasonable, actual results may differ materially from those suggested by the forward looking statements for various reasons. PlayStar/PlayStar Wyoming PlayStar is a holding company which, through its subsidiaries, PlayStar Limited, Antigua Casino and NetEngine, operates, promotes and commercializes e-commerce transactions and an on-line gaming service, that offers interactive, software-based games of chance. Antigua Casino conducts PlayStar's Internet gaming business, and PlayStar Limited licenses gaming technology to Antigua Casino's Internet gaming business. For the period from inception on October 3, 1996 until March 31, 1999, the cumulative earned interest and casino revenue of PlayStar was $178,519 and its accumulated deficit was $4,562,524. NetEngine will conduct the e-commerce activities of the Company. During 1996 and 1997, PlayStar raised an aggregate of $825,000 in cash through three private placements. In November and December 1997, and January 1998, PlayStar raised an additional $1,004,637 through two additional private placements. In May, July and August 1998, PlayStar raised an additional $2,469,700 through additional private placements. These financings have been sufficient to satisfy PlayStar's cash requirements. From these proceeds, the Company and its subsidiaries paid approximately $1,215,000 for products and services provided by Dreamplay and approximately $1,000,000 for legal, accounting, public relations and administrative services through March 31, 1999. At that date PlayStar had available approximately $550,000 in working capital. Of this amount, PlayStar intends to pay for the majority of its advertising, marketing and promotional efforts on a performance-related commission and/or profit sharing basis. Management believes that PlayStar will have sufficient funds to conduct its operations for at least through, at least, June 30, 1999. PlayStar Limited PlayStar Limited's efforts are centered on the purchase of on-line gaming and financial transaction processing software incorporated into the creation of an electronic casino operating over the Internet. Effective April 1, 1998, PlayStar Limited and Dreamplay Research Corp. entered into an agreement in which PlayStar Limited retained Dreamplay to provide PlayStar Limited's gaming software. Pursuant to the terms of this agreement, Dreamplay assigned to PlayStar Limited all right, title and interest in the software designed and developed for PlayStar Limited, under a previous agreement for services. PlayStar Limited licenses its gaming technology to Antigua Casino who then operates the electronic casino. Antigua Casino Antigua Casino's Articles of Incorporation enable it to operate an Internet-based casino. Using the technology developed by PlayStar Limited and licensed to it, Antigua Casino's casino service, at www.antigua.org, allows patrons to play interactive games in real time either in "free" mode or in "live" mode. In "live" mode, patrons wager with chips acquired using electronic money or "e-cash" that was purchased through credit cards, wire-transfers and money orders. Antigua Casino initially offers a selection of casino-style games, including, but not limited to blackjack, draw poker, baccarat, roulette and three different slot machines. In December 1997, PlayStar Limited, on behalf of Antigua Casino, applied to the government of Antigua for an electronic casino gaming license. On January 28, 1998, the Antigua government granted approval for the issuance of the license to Antigua Casino. Antigua Casino began operations of this casino immediately following the consummation of the reorganization on September 14, 1998. Since the opening of its casino, Antigua Casino continued to operate in development mode under conditions of live play and real money wagering rather than only the free play of its earlier testing. This focus was carried forward into the first quarter of 1999 with ongoing analysis of the performance and the functionality of the casino. In addition, customer service systems and procedures were modified to reflect the reality of being live on line. Limited marketing activities resulted in a gradual build-up of the client and revenue base. With credit cards proving to be the means whereby almost 100% of this type of play is conducted, an important factor of operations is the ability to ensure adequate facilitation capability, not only from the standpoint of costs but also from the degree of fraud protection provided. This control enables chargebacks to be held to a minimum. Experience, during the last quarter of 1998, indicated the need for substantial improvement in this area. Accordingly, management instituted a search for an alternative solution to that then being carried out. With concern being expressed over possible changes in North American legislation, it was felt that such a solution would be required to be offshore. Analysis of the market indicated that this was an area ill served and suggested that a solution would provide the Company, not only with its internal needs, but also offer the considerable possibility of taking it into highly profitable areas of business activity outside the sphere of its casino operations. As 1998 concluded, management found in Cyberstation, not only the possibility of meeting these needs through the licensing of its ultra secure encryption technology and sophisticated data reporting capabilities, but also access to excellent sources of software design to further enhance the Company's Java based casino games. Management also believed that Cyberstation would provide the Company with the ability to introduce substantial savings in the cost infrastructure of its operations. Accordingly, with negotiations underway for these enhancements to its direction, the Company felt that its future would be best served by concluding its relationship with Dreamplay and this contract was terminated in late December 1998. For the March 1999 quarter, casino results were adversely affected by a number of large winners outside of a considered norm. However, we believe that long-term benefits are derived from favourable word of mouth publicity in meeting payments to such winners. While negotiations with Cyberstation were taking place during the quarter, Cyberstation personnel conducted a full examination of the gaming and back office software with a view towards its enhancement. The casino intends shortly to introduce a unique two-tiered affiliate business opportunity called QuickConnect. Under the program, webmasters, from anywhere on the Internet, are encouraged to host a direct link from their websites into our casino games. Webmasters who become program "Associates" use this casino gateway to feed players into our new cash management system, CashEngine. This product allows all players to be tracked back to the originating website, and provides the Associate with the ability to earn a 30% participating commission in the casino's net win. Associates become members of the Master Associate Program by signing up two new QuickConnect Associates, thereby earning an additional 20% override commission. With each QuickConnect application, Associates and Master Associates will be offered a CashEngine eCash account for easy tracking of commissions (see also possible use of a VirtualCard discussed below). During May we have introduced player incentive contests and have undertaken some direct e-mail programs, which have resulted in a significant increase in player activity. NETENGINE A significant amount commerce is now being conducted over the Internet. Most of this e-commerce is conducted using credit cards, as consumers reach a comfort level that allays security concerns. As merchants accept the Internet as a place for doing business, many will recognize that they have much to gain by going offshore because it is relatively easy for them to set up shop@anywhere.com. They are the first generation of merchants who can choose their business domicile. With the right corporate structure in place, they can select the jurisdiction under which their profits are settled and taxed. As traditional businesses expand online and become truly global, the Company believes that there will be a shift to multi-national thinking with merchants identifying the opportunity and benefits of processing e-commerce transactions in an offshore jurisdiction. Recognizing the huge potential of providing credit card processing services, NetEngine has licensed a number of "Software Engines" for this purpose. Card Engine Using 2,048 bit RSA keys that are rated military grade cryptography allows merchants to perform credit card processing in an ultra secure manner. The keys are used to sign the merchant and transaction hub certificates for cross verification purposes. In addition, the certificates provide control over access to reviewing online reports outlining the transactions. Transactions occur live and only take a few seconds of real time processing. As part of this function, access is made to an effective database set up to limit possible consumer and merchant fraud. The system submits each transaction to online monitoring and real time accounting from the standpoint of both the merchant and its Bank. These financial institutions in turn use the system to monitor their total merchant network. As developed outside the United States, without participation of US citizens, it allows the technology to be used world-wide without violating any cryptographic export restrictions. Cash Engine The product works in conjunction with CardEngine. While the merchant uses CardEngine to process and report credit card transactions, CashEngine provides customers and marketing partners with electronic cash. Using its licensed proprietary 2,048 bit encryption technology, it allows for a software product with a set of functions associated to a unique computer certificate. The creation of an eCash account allows customers and affiliates to purchase goods or services from member merchants or transfer funds to other eCash account holders. In this way, eCash develops into a product that becomes used across numerous websites as a form of tender. The eCash management system allows users to review transactions that have occurred within their accounts and the status of their eCash account balance. Without the creation of a unique certificate being allocated to each user, this would not be possible. The possession of an eCash account also allows the user access to our newly acquired product namely VirtualCard. VirtualCard This product serves as a secured credit card/debit card matched against funds within eCash account. Balances within the account govern useable limits. Upon request, and subject to an annual fee, the user may request a physical Master Card that can be used to purchase goods and services, not only on the Internet, but elsewhere. These transactions are administered using the Bank's existing technical infrastructure; with an interface provided by CashEngine to monitor available spending. Similar review and reporting capabilities as eCash are available, again governed by the existence of a unique certificate. Marketing Management believes that the most effective way to penetrate into new markets will be through a network of joint ventures. These joint ventures will make up what will be known as the "NetEngine Network." NetEngine and the joint venture partner will jointly own each company within the NetEngine Network. NetEngine will provide the CashEngine and CardEngine technologies while the joint venture partner will provide the local contacts and resources. NetEngine will work with the local partner to set up the NetEngine operation. The ideal partner is one with a good relationship with Acquiring Banks and other strategic entities such as Internet Service Providers. NetEngine will provide a turnkey solution including but not limited to: 1. The NetEngine name, logo and business plan; 2. The CardEngine and CashEngine Software Technologies; 3. Credit Card Processing Agreements for the local Acquiring Bank; 4. Merchant application forms and contracts; 5. Cardholder application forms and contracts; and 6. Customer Service and Sales training manuals; NetEngine recently announced its first such joint venture with MasterPay Limited, a Nevis company. Using Banks based in Guatemala City, management project that the Company will earn over $2 million in processing income by the end of 1999. The Company's investment in Cyberstation Computers and Support allows it to participate in revenues obtained in marketing similar products in territories not covered in the Cyberstation license.
