Mobile gambling technology provider Spin3 has raised the mobile stakes by becoming the first to supply web-based mobile casino games playable on the groundbreaking Android G1, one of the most talked about mobile phones in the industry. The web-based games, which include Microgaming's top quality Blackjack and Roulette, the progressive play slot game Major Millions and the popular Tomb Raider, eliminate the need to download and install games and enable users to play instantly.
By combining the Android G1's screen quality and touch-screen controls, Spin3's mobile casino games offer the most advanced mobile casino experience to date.
Matti Zinder, Head of Spin3, says, "Following hot on the heels of the iPhone, the G1, which uses the Google Android operating system, is a new must-have handset for the consumer market.
"Around 1.5 million Android G1 phones were pre-ordered before it was even launched. That's a phenomenal number. The launch of mobile casino games on the Android G1 is part of Spin3's wider strategy to offer its leading games as web applications for use on web-based smartphones.
"The G1 offers a powerful breakthrough for the mobile world with a fast, stable, operating system which is all about connectivity, interactivity and the internet. This technology and the mobile internet combine to provide a streamlined channel on which to deliver our games, and a mobile gaming experience that is on par with online."
Zinder comments that mobile internet technology represents the next step in the evolution of mobile telephony.
"The versatility of the Google Android operating system and the fact that it is an open source system means that it is only a matter of time before other handset manufacturers launch devices based on this platform," he predicted. Spin3 already supports the first device to run on the Google Android system and as new devices are launched, we are confident our development team will continue to adapt our games to support these as well.
Spin3 will be providing demos of the Android G1 games at the International Gaming Expo in London from 27th – 29th January, 2009 (Stand 5240) and at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from 16th – 19th February, 2009 (Stand 7C34).
