HONG KONG -- May 29, 2013

Asia Entertainment & Resources Ltd. (“AERL”) (NASDAQ: AERL), which operates
through its subsidiaries and related promoter companies as a VIP room gaming
promoter in Macau, today announced certain terms of the proposed rights
offering previously announced on May 24, 2013.

On the payment date, holders of every two outstanding ordinary shares as of
the record date will receive a right to purchase one ordinary share at an
exercise price of $3.00 per share. In addition, as previously announced,
certain persons will agree to purchase any ordinary shares underlying
unexercised rights. Messrs. Lam Man Pou, Chairman of AERL, and Vong Hon Kun,
Chief Operating Officer of AERL, two of such persons, will agree to purchase
approximately 34% of such shares for $4.50 per share, representing a premium
to the closing price of AERL’s ordinary shares on May 24, 2013, which was
$4.37 per share, and a 50% premium to the exercise price of the rights. Mr.
Lam and Mr. Vong will also agree to lock up the ordinary shares purchased from
the unexercised rights for a period of two years following the purchase date.
The remaining persons who are agreeing to purchase shares underlying
unexercised rights will purchase such shares at an exercise price of $3.00 per
share. As previously announced, no consideration will be paid to these
shareholders for their agreement to purchase the ordinary shares. AERL
anticipates launching the rights offering on June 4, 2013.

The offering of the ordinary shares underlying the rights will be made only by
means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933,
as amended. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the
solicitation of an offer to buy ordinary shares, nor shall there be any sale
of the ordinary shares in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer,
solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification
under the securities law of any such jurisdiction.

Shareholders should carefully read the prospectus, rights certificate and
related materials when they are available because they will contain important
information.
