PLAYSON JOINS THE ODOBO DEVELOPER PROGRAM
2014-08-07

With popular titles like Alice in Wonderslots and Lucky Pirates to its credit, games development studio Playson is becoming increasingly well known in the HD games development business, and it has extended its range by joining the Odobo Developer Program this week.

Playson employs around 250 people in offices and studios in Malta, Ukraine, Russia and Belarus covering the full spectrum of desktop and mobile-accessible games, a capability that has been enhanced by Odobo's ability to deliver games content to players on desktop, tablet and mobile in a single HTML5 client build.

Via Odobo Play, Playson will have the opportunity to take an active role in the promotion of its games with gaming operators.

Adam Daniel, managing director at Playson, said: Odobo represents a modern and sophisticated solution for bringing games to market. The tools on offer allow us to provide our content to multiple vendors and millions of players via a single build."




IRISH SPORTS BROADCASTER IN MOBILE TALKS
2014-07-09

The Irish sports broadcaster Setanta Bicimotos Sports is reportedly in discussions with mobile communications network provider Three Ireland for a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) accreditation, reports The Irish Times.

MVNO status would enable Setanta to deliver information and mobile gambling services to its customers on the 3 backbone, enabling the broadcaster to launch a package deal offering TV, phone and mobile broadband services, along with access to Setanta Go, an online website delivering live feeds of all Setanta and BT Sport channels.

The European Commission has recently approved Threes acquisition of O2 Ireland, under conditions to ensure continued competitiveness in the Irish market. Part of this agreement includes Threes obligation to establish two MVNOs on its network.

Deals with UPC and Carphone Warehouse already fill this quota and both these companies have scheduled their mobile network launches for 2015, while Setantas network could be live before the end of 2014.

Setanta has reportedly hired Leo Hassett, former head of mobile business development at Eircom, to advise on its mobile plans.



ATLANTIC CLUB SAGA CONTINUES (Update)
2014-02-26

In a move that is probably now of merely academic interest to the online gambling industry, the losing bidder in the auctioning-off of the failed Atlantic Club Casino has said it intends to seek a re-hearing and review of its bid, which was a million dollars better than that submitted by the winners, Caesars Entertainment and Tropicana Entertainment (see previous InfoPowa reports).
According to a report in the Press of Atlantic City, Sobe Holdings LLC will submit the rehearing request on Monday, and if it is refused the company will take the matter to an appeal court.
Although the Sobe bid was higher, but Atlantic City Chief Judge Gloria Burns felt that the Caesars-Tropicana bid carried less risk.
Sobe disagrees with this assessment, and says that instead of stripping the company and retrenching its employees, it wants to revamp and rebrand the property and re-open it as a going concern.
The company has the necessary experience, as it operates and owns Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach, Florida.


GOOD RESULTS FROM EVOLUTION MULTI-GAME FUNCTIONALITY
2014-02-06

Evolution Gaming says its new Multi-Game Play (MGP) feature, available across all Evolution Live Gaming tables, is proving popular.
The feature allows Live Casino customers to play up to four games simultaneously in a single, auto-configuring window and is adaptable to different player groups such as high rollers.
Evolution said it has seen a sharp rise in wagering figures since the soft-launch of the feature.
Players who have used Multi-Game Play (MGP) are wagering twice as much as they did before they used it. In particular, a very significant proportion of all wagering is taking place with two, three or four MGP windows open. Not only that, we have seen rapid adoption of MGP amongst our VIP players, Fredrik Osterberg, Chief Commercial Officer at Evolution said.
MGP meets the needs of both high rollers and a new generation of players that are very comfortable with multi-tasking and multi-betting. At the same time its ease of use encourages all players to explore the licensees other live tables, and new games and betting opportunities.
