|Swedish developer of eGaming solutions, Boss Media, has announced it is to acquire a 20 percent interest in the Jadestone Group, a world-leading creator of games for mobile phones and online and multiplayer games for various digital channels. Boss Media says the deal will be of strategic benefit to both companies who will gain access to each other’s customers and products.|
'This is an important milestone for us,' Peter Bertilsson, President and CEO of Boss Media, told us. 'We gain two things at the same time. One is a unique knowledge about the mobile area, in which it is difficult to keep pace with the rapid technological development for a company such as ours, and the other is that we gain access to know-how in the skill gaming area, which is closely related to our current portfolio technically but not in terms of the end-user experience. In the future, the telephone will be highly important as a distribution channel, both for gambling and entertainment games.’
'Our goal is to develop strong, commercial game concepts using state-of-the-art technology,' added Robert Henrysson, President of Jadestone. 'By teaming with Boss Media, the leading supplier of gaming system solutions, we will be able to jointly deliver a host of new, exciting products aimed at the global gaming market.'
