|eBay is to expand its online operations by branching out into the Internet gaming market. From October the website will be offering online games with cash prizes for successful players. The new enterprise is being developed in conjunction with SkillJam, part of Fun Technologies, and will be advertised on eBay’s main site. |
The service will be supplied for a fee but will offer the chance to win cash prizes by playing a variety of games such as chess. SkillJam has vast experience of developing online gaming having worked on AOL, MSN and Disney websites.
