|Spin3, the leading wireless casino system powered by online gaming software provider Microgaming, has been awarded the Associate Membership of global trade association GSM.|
GSM represents more than 700 GSM mobile phone operators across 217 territories and countries of the world with over 2 billion customers – over 82 percent of the world's mobile phone users.
The move will catapult Spin3 into a host of new markets worldwide, with the mobile casino acting as an application provider for the GSM family of technology platforms.
The mobile gaming industry is already set for a bright future with Juniper Research forecasting that stakes gambled on mobiles will reach US $16.6 billion globally by 2011, with Asia-Pacific overtaking Europe in 2008.
“Gaining acceptance to the GSM Association propels us into the premier league of the mobile industry, rubbing shoulders with the frontrunners in the GSM arena,” said Matti Zinder, CEO, Spin3.
Spin3's mobile casino games are on display at the 3GSM World Congress Barcelona (booth no. 7C34), from 12-15 February 2007.
