Mobile gambling technology firms face a new competitor from Russia following the appearance this week of a company titled Enterra (enterra-poker.com) and what appears to be a versatile new mobile poker offering.
 
The company boasts that its Enterra Poker system has been substantially enhanced with a mobile client that offers a selection of five popular poker genres,  a choice of tournament types and player interaction facilities, along with a versatility that enables it to be used on desktops, notebooks, tablets, Android, iOS, Blackberry and Windows mobile phone systems
 
Enterra claims that the product does not require Silverlight, Flash or any technologies other than HTML, and the only technology the user needs is an Internet connection and any browser.
 
"Enterra Poker Mobile is built using the latest HTML5 platform and is available in pure HTML5 and PhoneGap variants in a highly customisable package," a spokesman said this week.
 
"You purchase Enterra Poker software without any royalties or post-sale fees. As game producers we are open to discuss different purchase schemes with you. Once you buy a license for one server installation you will be able to independently run the software on your own server."
 
The company has launched a demo version at http://demo.enterra-poker.com/html5/index.html and has an offering in the iTunes store. Enterra is currently also being used in the social networking context on Facebook through Glamble Poker.
 
Based in Barnaul, Russia, the company says that its turnkey poker system has an advanced server backend and 4 different clients – desktop (a standalone Windows application), Flash (used inside a web browser), social network (for integrating in social networking sites such as Facebook etc.) and mobile (for playing poker on mobile devices).
