|For the first time, a cellular service provider is offering an interactive casino game channel using advanced mobile technology.|
Israeli content provider Zone4Play has announced it will be using the casino game system it developed for the cellular service provider Orange.
This interactive system, integrated with other OBox services, provides subscribers with an extensive range of content services, including various casino games, such as slots, video poker, black jack, roulette and others. By acquiring virtual chips, users may enjoy the gambling experience in a risk-free environment.
Development of this games system, based on WAP, SMS and IVR technologies and the advanced GVM and J2ME platforms, emphasizes stability and broad user base support options. The system incorporates server-client technologies that allow users direct access to support and monitoring systems from their cell phones or via the Internet. By keeping records of points scored and game history, Orange will be able to provide service upgrades, extend the variety of games offered and include such extras as user competitions, online tournaments and prizes.
Zone4Play's unique IVR casino game platform supports use of different telephone units with only one personal account.
The company’s Business Development Manager Erez Lahav: 'Once again, Orange has proved to be a company with authentic technological vision and an extensive business-oriented outlook. The platform we designed especially for Orange is a high quality, complex and powerful system that enhances the browsing experience and provides users with enriched content.'
