04/25/2012 :  NEW CLOUD-BASED DELIVERY PLATFORM FOR MOBILE GAMES
 
Mobile Stakes signs up European online casino operator 7Red
 
Mobile Stakes, a Dublin-based company that boasts it offers the real-money gaming industry's first cloud-based game streaming platform for online casino games, has signed up online casino operator 7Red, which will use the Mobile Stakes platform to bring 7Red.com games to the iPad and smartphones.
 
The cloud-based Mobile Stakes platform enables online casinos to take popular flash web-based casino and sports betting games directly to mobile devices without any reprogramming or redesign of the game, a company spokesman said this week.
 
"Using the Mobile Stakes platform, online casino operators can offer their customers a mobile version of all their popular games with the exact same gameplay, payouts, security and identity protection offered by the online casino," the spokesman claimed. "In addition, mobile players get the same signing bonuses, monthly promotions and offers they'd get on the online site."
 
Mobile Stakes was financially backed by the YouWeb online incubator, founded by Peter Relan.
 
Ido Raviv, CEO of 7Red said: "Without the Mobile Stakes platform, our portfolio of 75 games ranging from blackjack, roulette, video poker and soft games simply could not be brought to the iPad in a short time and with no re-development in HTML5 or native code."
 
Mobile Stakes technology is also suited for web- and Facebook-based social casino gaming companies that currently do not have real-money gaming offerings.
