PlayTech goes mobile with Masabi

Lose money on the move

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

PlayTech, the largest supplier of online casino software, has launched mobile versions of all its games.

The gaming company, which supplies games for dozens of casinos around the world, has inked a deal with UK development company Masabi to enable players to play on the move.

Masabi has spent the last year getting the PlayTech games working in Java and on phone handsets.

Players access their accounts through the Masabi software, using the same style of interface that PlayTech provides on the desktop, and over any internet connection.

This means the network operator is out of the loop - it may make some pennies from the data traffic, but otherwise it's not involved. There was a time when network operators saw mobile gaming as their next big revenue stream, but they are going to have to move quickly if companies as big as PlayTech find it easier to go round the operator than deal with them. ®
