|Zone4Play have announced the launch of a new casino games service on digital TV. Subscribers to UPC Digital in the Netherlands and Austria may now enjoy casino style games such as Black Jack, Slots Machine, Baccarat and Video Poker.|
Erez Lahav, Zone4Play's Business Development manager: 'The UPC deal is most significant for Zone4Play, as it will enable tens of thousands of subscribers in Europe to enjoy the thrilling experience of playing casino games via their TV set. The opportunity to work mutually with a pan-European cable network, and in addition, the opportunity to provide hi-tech content to its subscribers, is an exciting challenge for us.'
Not only delivering an interactive gaming experience that includes some of the most popular casino formats Zone4Play will also be responsible for refreshing the content of the service and providing more games in due course.
The various casino games available to customers are to use a points system whereby players obtain “points for play” by telephone through a premium rate service. Players with the highest points will be listed in a top-ten leader board that is constantly refreshed.
UPC is very happy with the deal that complements an already popular suite of games products offered by Zone4Play to their subscribers. Sandy Macleod, Senior Director of Commercial Development, UPC Media Interactive Services: 'In a short time this new content has already demonstrated its popularity with our subscribers in both Netherlands and Austria.'
