12/13/13 : LAS VEGAS FROM HOME SIGNS UP POKERTEK
 
HTML5 casino and poker games to be supplied.
 
Vancouver-based online gambling software company Las Vegas From Home (LVFH) has inked a supply deal with electronic table games supplier Pokertek.
 
LVFH will provide PokerTek with LVFH's new HTML5 mobile gaming platform, which allows Poker, BlackJack, and other games to be played on smart phones, tablets, and personal computers.
 
Jake H. Kalpakian, president of LVFH said Friday:
 
"Mobile gaming is one of the fastest-growing segments of the global gaming market. With our products, players will be able to game anywhere in a facility featuring PokerTek's technology and will soon be able to play casino games such as BlackJack and Roulette and participate in multiplayer games such as Poker (including tournaments) against other players, all from their mobile devices.
 
"Our HTML5-based games allow gamblers to play directly from their mobile web browsers, anywhere on a ship or casino property and not just the confines of the gaming floor."
 
Kalpakian said that the increasing prevalence of mobile devices in the gaming industry had persuaded LVFH to increase its focus on mobile games over the last several years. The company already has many of its casino and poker products available on iOS and Android devices, he said.
 
James Crawford, President of PokerTek, said, "Our customers are demanding mobile gaming as part of their electronic gaming strategies, and we are pleased to add LVFH's leading mobile gaming technology to our suite of products."
