|CYOP Systems, a developer and provider of online skill-gaming solutions, has announced that it has licensed a suite of pool and snooker games which will be included in CYOP's licensed CrediPlay software and featured on www.skillarcade.com. |
The Pool and Snooker gaming systems allow players to play against each other. Players may compete against each other for cash prizes in an entertaining setting, in a rich media environment. SkillArcade.com said it will begin hosting tournaments next month with a wide variety of prizes.
'The current growth and popularity of online pool and snooker is unprecedented when you look at the hard numbers of players online at any given occasion. And while legal restrictions on gambling may inhibit the use of some credit cards, skill gaming is legal in most jurisdictions within North America, Europe and Asia,' says Patrick Smyth, President of CYOP.
The company believes in the next three years the skill games industry will see the same growth that the online casinos experienced in the late Nineties. 'The culture of online pool is in its formative stages, and we are now only seeing a glimpse into what the world may look like once online pool tournaments become international fixtures' adds Smyth.
