HARRAH'S AND SKY GAMES TO EXPLORE IN-FLIGHT GAMING

 MEMPHIS, Tenn., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Harrah's, the casino entertainment division of The Promus Companies (NYSE: PRI), and Creator Capital Inc. (VSE: CEV) and its wholly owned Las Vegas subsidiary, Sky Games International, today announced that they have signed an agreement creating an alliance to explore In-Flight Gaming aboard long-haul international flights and other non-traditional technology-based types of gaming. Under terms of the alliance, Harrah's will provide a broad range of consulting services to SGI.
 "Although as yet unproven, the potential for in-flight gaming is intriguing," said John Boushy, senior vice president information technology and corporate marketing for Promus. "This alliance gives Harrah's a unique and exciting opportunity to explore possible avenues to expand our brand distribution and deliver our Harrah's casino entertainment experience through various emerging technologies."
 Dan Greene, chief operating officer of SGI, stated, "I believe our innovative technological concept is complemented and enhanced by Harrah's casino entertainment experience, customer knowledge and operational expertise."
 Creator Capital Inc. has developed a computerized gaming system designed for use by passengers on long-haul international flights and other forms of transportation. The product enables the introduction of on-board casino-type gaming through either portable laptop units or integrated in-seat video systems. Creator Capital common stock currently trades on the Vancouver Stock Exchange.
 Based in Memphis, Tenn., Harrah's is the only casino company operating in all five major Nevada and New Jersey casino markets -- Atlantic City, N.J., Lake Tahoe, Laughlin, Las Vegas and Reno, Nev. Harrah's first riverboat casino opened in May 1993 in Joliet, Ill. Harrah's has an additional eight casino entertainment projects currently under development, including the world's largest casino in New Orleans, La.
 Harrah's parent company, Promus, also owns and operates three leading hotel brands: Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites hotels.
