Gamesys Limited, owners of Jackpotjoy.com, have announced that it is to extend its online gaming offering to mobile telephones using Rapid Mobile Media's innovative ThinkPhone application and Active Provisioning platform.
Edinburgh-based Rapid Mobile's ThinkPhone software allows for the development of a single version of an application before it is delivered to any type of mobile telephone through the Active Provisioning platform, which eliminates the need for porting to significantly improving time-to-market.
'The Rapid Mobile provisioning platform is enabling Gamesys to continue providing the highest quality and most enjoyable interactive gaming experiences as we extend our portfolio of titles to mobile users,' said Steve Clark, a Director for Gamesys.
'We are able to focus our efforts on delivering exciting games in conjunction with the entertainment industry's largest brands, while Rapid Mobile's technology provides the automatic delivery and robust end-to-end security that will enable us to maximise market penetration.'
Jackpotjoy.com is a leading UK online instant win and bingo site with over two million UK players paying out winnings of over $160 million every month on a range of more than 80 games. The new deal will see Jackpotjoy.com mobile games integrated into Gamesys’ web offering enabling players to use the same login and wallet for both. They will also be able to play the same games for the same progressive jackpots.
'The graphically rich and highly interactive games from Jackpotjoy.com are a natural for extending play opportunities through mobile phones,” said Jeremy Copp, Chief Executive Officer for Rapid Mobile Media.
“With Jackpoyjoy.com's strong brand reputation and extensive user base and the mobile delivery capabilities provided by Rapid Mobile, we expect our relationship with Gamesys to demonstrate how significant revenues can be derived from mobile gaming.'
