    PART I

    ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    sureBET Casinos, Inc. ("the Company") is a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Utah on June 13, 1985. Although the Company has been in existence since June 1985, it changed its business strategy in 1999 to enter into the casino business. The Company intended to develop, acquire, joint venture, manage, and operate gaming establishments with an initial focus on water-based gaming, the emerging gaming markets, and the rehabilitation and reorganization of casinos that were underperforming financially. The Company's operations were conducted through a subsidiary, Casino Padre Investment Company, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company, from November 1999 to November 2000. The LLC ceased operations in November 2000 and no longer exists.

    The Company is currently considered a "public shell" corporation with no active business operations and is in the process of searching for an operating business with which to merge or to acquire. The Company is an Over the Counter Bulletin Board stock trading under the symbol "SBET".

    CORPORATE HISTORY

    The Company was formed in Utah on June 13, 1985 under the name Navis, Bona, Inc. On March 29, 1988, the company merged with I Love Yogurt Corporation, a Texas corporation. Navis Bona, Inc., the surviving corporation, changed its name upon completion of the merger to I Love Yogurt Corporation.

    On June 24, 1992, I Love Yogurt Corporation merged with Chelsea Street Holding Company, Inc., a Delaware corporation. I Love Yogurt Corporation was the surviving corporation after the merger. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, I Love Yogurt Corporation changed its name to Chelsea Street Financial Holding Corporation. On November 23, 1993, Chelsea Street Financial Holding Corporation amended its Articles of Incorporation changing the name of the corporation to Wexford Technology Incorporated.

    On March 5, 1999, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with its controlling shareholder, Imperial Petroleum, Inc. ("Imperial"). Pursuant to the Agreement, Imperial acquired all of the assets and liabilities of the Company. No consideration was exchanged in return for the sale of the assets and transfer of the liabilities.

    On May 12, 1999, the Company entered into an Agreement to Exchange Common Stock with U.S. Gaming & Leisure Corp. ("USGL"). Pursuant to the agreement with USGL, the Company was to issue 6,000,000 new common shares to shareholders of USGL for 100% of the outstanding shares of USGL. This transaction was never consummated.

    On June 7, 1999, there was a change in the Board of Directors of the Company. The new board changed the Company's business strategy and decided to enter into the casino business. On June 24, 1999, the Articles of Incorporation of the Company were amended to change the name of the Company to sureBET Casinos, Inc.

    Under the direction of its new management, the Company intended to develop, acquire, joint venture, manage, and operate gaming establishments with an initial focus on water-based gaming, the emerging gaming markets, and the rehabilitation and reorganization of casinos that were underperforming financially.

    On October 1, 1999, the Company entered into a Management Contract with Casino Padre Investment Company, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company. Under the terms of the contract, the Company had an exclusive agreement to operate the gaming ship M/V Entertainer and the gaming operations located on the ship on behalf of and for the account of Casino Padre Investment Company, LLC.

    On October 27, 1999, the Company acquired 50 membership units in Casino Padre Investment Company LLC in exchange for 5,000,000 shares of the common stock of the Company. Immediately following the transaction, the Company owned 83% of Casino Padre Investment Company LLC. The shares were


    2


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    acquired from Charles S. Liberis, the President of the Company. The LLC was formed on September 14, 1999 and at the time of the acquisition, was still in a developmental stage. Casino Padre commenced operations on November 18, 1999. The LLC ceased operations on November 6, 2000. The charter on the M/V Entertainer has been terminated and the LLC no longer exists. See Item 12. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions.
    On December 20, 1999, the Company entered into an agreement with Black Hawk Hotel Corporation, an unaffiliated entity, to lease Lilly Belle's Casino, an existing casino facility located in Black Hawk, Colorado. The Company later canceled the lease based on the determination that increased competition impaired economic feasibility of the proposed venture.

    The Company issued 200,000 common shares valued at $200,000 as a deposit on the lease. Lilly Belle's Casino filed for bankruptcy in November 2001. The common shares that were issued are being held in escrow and the Company is currently negotiating to receive the shares back. Due to this uncertainty, the deposit was written off during the year ended March 31, 2002. See Item 6. Management's Discussion and Analysis or Plan of Operation.

    EMPLOYEES

    As of July 15, 2003, the Company is inactive and has no employees.

    The Company's future success depends in significant part upon the continued service of its key senior management personnel and its continuing ability to attract and retain highly qualified managerial personnel. The time that the officers and directors devote to the business affairs of the Company and the skill with which they discharge their responsibilities will substantially impact the Company's success. To the extent the services of these individuals would be unavailable to the Company for any reason, the Company would be required to identify, hire, train and retain other highly qualified managerial personnel to manage and operate the Company. The Company's business could be adversely affected to the extent such key individuals could not be replaced.


    ITEM 2. DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Company's administrative offices are located in 1,996 square feet of office space in Pensacola, Florida, that is owned by Charles S. Liberis, the Company's Chairman of the Board of Directors, Chief Executive Officer and principal stockholder. The Company pays no rent for the space.


    ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

    ITEM 4. SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS.

    PART II

    ITEM 5. MARKET FOR COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS.


    The Company's Common Stock is not traded on a registered securities exchange, or on NASDAQ. The Company's Common Stock has been quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board since 1987. It traded under the symbol "DICE" from July 14, 1999 to August 23, 2000. The stock was delisted from August 23, 2000 to May 23, 2001 and began trading under the symbol "SBET" on May 24, 2001. The following table sets forth the range of high and low bid quotations for each fiscal quarter within the last two fiscal years, as well as the current fiscal year. These quotations reflect inter-dealer prices without retail mark-up, mark-down, or commissions and may not necessarily represent actual transactions.


    FISCAL QUARTER ENDED HIGH BID LOW BID
    June 30, 2001..................... - -
    September 30, 2001................ $ 0.01 $ 0.01
    December 31, 2001................. $ 0.30 $ 0.01
    March 31, 2002.................... $ 0.10 $ 0.03
    June 30, 2002..................... $ 0.03 $ 0.01
    September 30, 2002................ $ 0.02 $ 0.01
    December 31, 2002................. $ 0.01 $ 0.01
    March 31, 2003.................... $ 0.01 $ 0.00
    June 30, 2003..................... $ 0.01 $ 0.00




    As of July 15, 2001, there were 291 record holders of the Company's Common Stock. On August 11, 2003, the closing bid price was $0.01. Since the Company's inception, no cash dividends have been declared on the Company's Common Stock.

    The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in "penny stocks". Generally, penny stocks are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 (other than securities registered on certain national exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system). If the Company's shares are traded for less than $5 per share, as they currently are, the shares will be subject to the SEC's penny stock rules unless (1) the Company's net tangible assets exceed $5,000,000 during the Company's first three years of continuous operations or $2,000,000 after the Company's first three years of continuous operations; or (2) the Company has had average revenue of at least $6,000,000 for the last three years. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prescribed by the SEC that provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account. In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction. These requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for a stock that becomes subject to the penny stock rules. As long as the Company's Common Stock is subject to the penny stock rules, the holders of the Common Stock may find it difficult to sell the Common Stock of the Company.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ITEM 6. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION.

    The Company ceased conducting an active trade or business in April 1997. During the fiscal years ended March 31, 1999 and 1998, the Company had no operating business. The Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") on March 5, 1999 with its controlling shareholder, Imperial Petroleum, Inc. ("Imperial"). The Agreement provided that Imperial would acquire all of the assets and liabilities of the Company. No consideration was exchanged in return for the sale of the net liabilities of the Company. As a result of the Agreement, the Company had no assets or liabilities as of March 31, 1999.

    In November 1999, the Company commenced operations in the casino business. The sole source of revenue for the Company through the fiscal year ended March 31, 2001 was derived from the operation of Casino Padre. Casino Padre began operations on November 18, 1999 and ceased operations on November 6, 2000.


    RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

    The Company has not generated any revenues for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2003 and 2002.

    For the year ended March 31, 2003, the Company incurred a net operating loss of $51,405, as compared to a net operating loss of $356,486 for the year ended March 31, 2002.

    For the year ended March 31, 2003, general and administrative expenses, consisting primarily of audit fees, legal fees, and transfer agent fees, were $21,405. This represents a decrease of $25,081 or 54% from the previous year. In addition, the Company wrote off a $30,000 deposit during the 2003 fiscal year. In March 2000, Newpark Shipbuilding - Pasadena, Inc. ("Newpark") filed a lawsuit against the Company seeking approximately $140,000 for repair work on the M/V Casino Padre. The Company disputed the amount of the claim and posted a bond in the amount of $140,000. The case has been settled for $100,000 and CSL Development, the vessel owner, was refunded $40,000 that it had posted on behalf of the Company.

    General and administrative expenses for the year ended March 31, 2002, totaled $46,486. In fiscal 2002, the Company wrote off a deposit of $200,000 on the Black Hawk casino lease and recognized $110,000 as a legal settlement expense in connection with the Newpark Shipping - Pasadena claim.


    LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

    At March 31, 2003, the Company had a working capital deficiency of $781,232, as compared to a deficiency of $759,827 at March 31, 2002. The Company does not believe that it will be able to meet its normal operating costs and expenses as the Company does not presently have any operations.

    The Company has been dependent upon loans from its principal shareholder and President, Charles Liberis. The loans are not evidenced by promissory notes and there is no fixed date for repayment. At March 31, 2003, $86,602 was owed to Mr. Liberis.

    In addition, at March 31, 2003, $48,506 was owed to CSL Development Corporation for past due charter payments, payments of Company operating expenses, and accrued interest thereon. Mr. Liberis is also the President of CSL Development Corporation.

    The report of the Company's independent auditors on the financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2002, included an explanatory paragraph relating to the uncertainty of the Company's ability to continue as a going concern due to the loss incurred for the year ended March 31, 2002 and the working capital deficit and stockholders' deficit existing as of March 31, 2002. The Company must raise additional capital, incur debt, or obtain financing in order to fund operations.

    The Company's financial condition has not improved since that audit report was issued. Accordingly, the going concern issue still applies to the Company.


    5


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Company believes that it will be able to raise additional capital through debt and equity financing which, along with additional loans from its principal shareholders, will be sufficient to meet the Company's current working capital needs for at least the next twelve months. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to raise additional capital or to take advantage of any expansion opportunities that may become available. There can be no assurance that additional capital will be available at all, at an acceptable cost, or on a basis that is timely to allow the Company to finance any further business opportunities.
    FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

    Except for historical information contained herein, the matters discussed in this Item 6, in particular, statements that use the words "believes", "intends", "anticipates", or "expects" are intended to identify forward looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties including, but not limited to, inclement weather, mechanical failures, increased competition, financing, governmental action, environmental opposition, legal actions, and other unforeseen factors.


    ITEM 7. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The consolidated financial statements and notes are included herein beginning at page F-1. The financial statements as of and for the year ended March 31, 2003 were not audited in reliance on Rule 3-11 of Regulation S-X, since the Company is deemed to be an inactive entity under that rule. For the past fiscal year, the Company's gross receipts do not exceed $100,000, the Company has not purchased, sold, or granted options on its common stock, the Company's expenditures do not exceed $100,000, and no material change in the Company's business has occurred.

    SUREBET CASINOS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARY


    NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
    MARCH 31, 2003 AND 2002
    1. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS, REVERSE MERGER AND BUSINESS OF THE COMPANY

    During the year ended March 31, 1999, SureBET Casinos, Inc. ("the Company") had no operating assets and had been investigating the acquisition of an operating business. The Company changed its name on June 24, 1999 from Wexford Technology, Incorporated. In connection with an Agreement to Exchange Stock with U.S. Gaming and Leisure Corp. ("USG&L") (see below), the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") on March 5, 1999 with its controlling shareholder, Imperial Petroleum, Inc. ("Imperial"). The Agreement provides that Imperial would acquire all the assets and liabilities of the Company. No consideration was exchanged in return for the sale of the net liabilities of the Company. As a result of the Agreement, the Company had no assets or liabilities as of March 31, 1999.

    In connection with the Agreement to Exchange Common Stock with USG&L, dated May 12, 1999, which is contingent on a private placement which has not been completed, the Company will issue 6,000,000 new common shares to stockholders of USG&L for 100% of the outstanding shares of USG&L. As a result of the tax-free transaction, USG&L will become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The owners of USG&L obtained effective control of the Company in July 1999 by obtaining control of the Board of Directors of the Company. USG&L is presently in the business of operating a cruise ship and, after a private offering to raise additional capital, intends to also enter the gaming business. The transaction will be accounted for as a reverse acquisition whereby USG&L will be the acquiring company for accounting purposes.

    On June 7, 1999, there was a change in the Board of Directors of the Company. The new board changed the Company's business strategy and decided to enter into the casino business. On June 24, 1999, the Company's articles of incorporation were amended to change the name of the Company to SureBET Casinos, Inc.

    Under the direction of its new management, the Company intends to develop, acquire, joint venture, manage and operate gaming establishments with an initial focus on water-based gaming, the emerging gaming markets, and the rehabilitation and reorganization of casinos that are under performing financially.

    On October 1, 1999, the Company entered into a Management Contract with Casino Padre Investment Company, LLC, ("Casino Padre") a Nevada limited liability company. Under the terms of the contract, the Company has an exclusive agreement to operate the gaming ship

    SUREBET CASINOS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARY
    NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
    1. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS, REVERSE MERGER AND BUSINESS OF THE COMPANY
    (CONTINUED)

    M/Ventertainer (name changed in April 2000 to M/V Casino Padre) and the gaming operations located on the ship on behalf of and for the account of Casino Padre. On October 27, 1999, the Company acquired 50 membership units in Casino Padre in exchange for 5,000,000 shares of the common stock of the Company. Immediately following the transaction, the Company owned 83% of Casino Padre. The shares were acquired from Charles S. Liberis, the President of the Company. Casino Padre was formed on September 14, 1999 and at the time of the acquisition, was still in a developmental stage. Casino Padre commenced operations on November 18, 1999. As of March 31, 2003, the Company owns 74% of Casino Padre. Casino Padre ceased operations on November 6, 2000.

    The acquisition has been accounted for in a manner similar to the pooling-of-interests method due to Charles L. Liberis' control of the respective companies. Accordingly, the Company has presented, in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the combination of the companies as if the acquisition had occurred at the inception of Casino Padre in September 1999. Casino Padre's assets and liabilities are presented on a historical basis with no adjustment for the acquisition.

    On December 20, 1999, the Company entered into an agreement with Black Hawk Hotel Corporation, an unaffiliated entity, to lease Lilly Belle's Casino, an existing casino facility located in Black Hawk, Colorado. Pursuant to terms of the lease, the Company has an option to purchase the premises. The lease is contingent on the Company receiving approval for the transaction and issuance of regulatory licenses from the Colorado Gaming Commission. The Company's application with the Colorado Gaming Commission was withdrawn effective August 7, 2001.

    The Company is currently considered a "public shell" corporation with nominal business operations and is in the process of searching for an operating business with which to negotiate a "reverse merger."

    2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


    BASIS OF PRESENTATION
    The Company's financial statements have been presented on the basis that it is a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.

    The Company has suffered continuing net losses from operations and its working capital deficit and stockholders' deficit raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern as of March 31, 2003. As explained in Note 1, without a merger partner or acquisition of operating assets, the Company has nominal operations. The Company is dependant on a merger partner or raising additional funds in order to provide capital for the Company to


    F-7

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUREBET CASINOS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARY
    NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
    continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty

    The Company believes that it will be able to raise additional capital through debt and equity financing, along with loans from its principal shareholders, which will be sufficient to meet the Company's current working capital needs for at least the next twelve months. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to raise additional capital or take advantage of any expansion opportunities that may become available. There can be no assurance that additional capital will be available at all, at an acceptable cost, or on a basis that is timely to allow the Company to finance any further business opportunities.


    STATEMENT OF CASH FLOWS
    For statement of cash flow purposes, the Company considers short-term investments, with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.


    USE OF ESTIMATES AND ASSUMPTIONS
    Preparation of the Company's financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.


    PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION
    The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiary. All significant intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.


    INCOME TAXES
    The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes." SFAS No. 109 utilizes the asset and liability method of computing deferred income taxes. The objective of the asset and liability method is to establish deferred tax assets and liabilities for the temporary differences between the financial reporting basis and the tax basis of the Company's assets and liabilities at enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when such amounts are realized or settled.


    F-8


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUREBET CASINOS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARY
    NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

    NET LOSS PER COMMON SHARE
    The Company follows the provisions of SFAS No. 128, Earnings Per Share. SFAS No. 128 provides a different method of calculating earnings per share than was formerly used in APB Opinion 15. SFAS No. 128 provides for the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Dilutive earnings per share reflects the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of the Company. Because the Company has no dilutive securities, the accompanying presentation is only of basic loss per share.

    3. INCOME TAXES

    At March 31, 2003, the Company had net operating loss carryforwards totaling approximately $6,270,000 available to reduce future taxable income through the year 2014. Due to changes in control of the Company, these carryforwards are generally limited on an annual basis.

    Deferred taxes are determined based on temporary differences between the financial statement and income tax basis of assets and liabilities as measured by the enacted tax rates which will be in effect when these differences reverse.

    Deferred tax assets are comprised of the following:


    March 31,
    2003 2002
    ------------ -------------
    Net operating loss carryforwards $ 2,116.200 $ 2,114,800
    Valuation Allowance (2,116,200) (2,114,800)
    ------------ -------------
    Net deferred tax asset $ - $ -
    ------------- -------------




    The Company has recorded a full valuation allowance against all deferred tax assets because it could not determine whether it was more likely than not that the deferred tax asset would be realized.

    4. COMMON STOCK

    At March 31, 2000, the Company issued 200,000 shares valued at $200,000 as a deposit for a lease on a casino in Colorado (see Note 5).

    In February 2000, the Company entered into subscription agreements with two individuals for the purchase of an aggregate of 1,000,000 units consisting of one share of common stock and one warrant to purchase one share of common stock at $.687 per share for a period of five years. The purchase price of the units is $.6525 per share. The individuals purchased an aggregate of 59,428 units in March 2000; therefore, there exist 59,428 warrants to purchase common shares outstanding at March 31, 2003

    5. CONTINGENT LIABILITIES


    FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
    The following disclosure of the estimated fair value of financial instruments is made in accordance with the requirements of SFAS No. 107, Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments. The estimated fair value amounts have been determined by the Company, using available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies.

    The fair value of financial instruments classified as current liabilities including accounts payable, due to shareholder, and due to CSL Development Corporation (see Note 6) approximate carrying value due to the short-term maturity of the instruments.


    LITIGATION
    In March 2000, Newpark Shipbuilding - Pasadena, Inc. ("Newpark") filed lawsuit against the Company seeking approximately $140,000 for repair work on the M/V Casino Padre. The Company disputed the amount of the claim and posted a bond in the amount of $140,000. The case has been settled for $100,000 and CSL Development, the vessel owner, was refunded $40,000 that it had posted on behalf of the Company.


    DEPOSIT ON CASINO LEASE
    As explained in Note 4, the Company has issued 200,000 common shares valued at $200,000 as a deposit on the lease of a casino in Black Hawk, Colorado. The lease was a five-year lease for $30,000 per month and would commence the earlier of October 1, 2000 or the issuance of a gaming license by the Colorado Gaming Commission. The casino has filed for bankruptcy. The common shares that were issued are being held in escrow and the Company is currently in negotiations to receive the shares back; however, due to this uncertainty, the deposit has been written-off during the year ended March 31, 2002.

    6. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

    The payable to a principal shareholder included accrued interest at a rate of 12% annually. The Company also owed CSL Development Corporation for past due charter payments, payment of other operating expenses and for accrued interest at 12% annually. Mr. Liberis is also president of CSL Development Corporation.
