|World Gaming plc (OTC BB: WGMGY), a global provider of Internet|
gaming software and e-business services, has added instant play
craps and roulette to its suite of Java casino games. The company's
original suite includes blackjack, numerous poker games, and slots
in Java format for those operators using the company's Version 3
'The expansion of our Java suite is aimed at offering our licensees
high-value entertainment that will drive top-line revenue growth
without adding to their bottom line costs,' said Mike Aymong, CEO
of World Gaming. 'We have identified that there is significant
cross-over from our Web-based sportsbook and pari-mutuel wagering
products to our instant play casino games.'
The introduction of craps and roulette in Java formats falls on the
heels of a major release of Asian language Java games by the
company in February.
'We are committed to broadening our game and language offerings
with an eye to customer retention and extended market reach for our
licensees,' said Rodney Davis, interim COO and CFO of World Gaming.
'Approximately half of the active players on our platform are
attracted by the immediacy offered by instant play Java format
games. With the addition of craps and roulette, we would expect to
see extended play and new players on our licensees' sites.'
World Gaming powers more than 750 Web sites with over 250,000
active accounts worldwide.
