03/02/2012 : IGT AND JOINGO PARTNER FOR MEGAJACKPOTS MOBILE APP
Seamlessly reaching 99 percent of its mobile users
International Game Technology (IGT) and mobile technology firm Joingo have teamed up to create a MegaJackpots Mobile App giving IGT players immediate access to real time jackpot levels and information on their favourite IGT games.
Joingo™’s Mobile Platform will connect IGT to its players to drive repeat business with an interactive, branded and personalised application that will be IGT's first targeted at U.S. customers.
Using Location Awareness, the app supplies geographically relevant details for Featured Games, Where to Play and Winners, as well as allowing players to interact and provide feedback through the app's connectivity with Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
“With identical stand-alone apps utilizing ‘push’ technology for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry, plus mobile web and MMS/SMS for feature phones, IGT can seamlessly reach 99 percent of mobile users, an exceptional feat in the very fragmented mobile domain,” said Steve Boyle, chief executive officer of Joingo.
The MegaJackpots app is available for download via iTunes, Android Market or Blackberry AppWorld.
