|WinwardCasino.com has teamed up with Parlay Entertainment and Phantom Fibre to launch the world's first on-line, real-time, wireless casino suite with 17 games including blackjack, slots and video poker for real-money wagering on cell phones and connected PDAs powered by the PocketPC® or Palm OS®.|
In late June, 2003, WinwardCasino Wireless will allow players to play their favourite casino games anywhere and anytime digital tone is available on their phone or connected PDA. Winward's wireless handheld capability will complement WinwardCasino.com's current on-line Casino and Bingo offerings. With a single account, WinwardCasino players will be able to play on a PC connected to the Internet or on a wireless handheld device connected to the wireless web.
WinwardCasino.com's wireless game suite will continue to be enhanced with new games, like roulette and craps, and support for additional handheld device platform environments such as Symbian and J2ME.
WinwardCasino.com's games are licensed from Parlay Entertainment Limited. “The launch of WinwardCasino Wireless as the world's first real-money, real-time wireless casino will be a milestone in Parlay's evolution,' said David Outhwaite, Parlay's Chief Executive Officer. 'Becoming the first developer to market with fully-functional wireless casino gaming will put Parlay at the head of the pack in the competitive interactive gaming marketplace.'
Parlay licenses Phantom Fiber's wireless middleware framework technology to extend its Internet games to mobile phones and PDAs accessing the wireless web.
