Masabi, the secure mobile applications company, announced earlier this week that it has completed the design and development for Playtech, the world's largest publicly traded online gaming software supplier of a range of mobile phone casino applications.
Masabi's secure mobile development experience, combined with its skills in developing low-end phones has allowed Playtech to effectively replicate its online gaming experience on mass-market handsets. The mobile product is now live, with the first mobile Slots, Black Jack, Roulette, Baccarat and Video Poker applications already rolled out to Playtech licensees.
"As Java mobile phones have become prevalent we now have a brand new channel for our casino applications," said Avigur Zamora, CEO of Playtech. "We evaluated a number of partners before selecting Masabi - their ability to build secure, highly usable and graphically rich applications on even the most constrained mobile devices will enable our licensees to effectively extend their offerings into the mobile space."
"The Playtech name has always been synonymous with innovation and best-of-breed technology in the gaming industry," said Tom Godber, CTO and founder of Masabi. "We are delighted to be working with them at the cutting edge of mobile technology, creating one of the most advanced secure, transactional mobile applications yet seen."
Masabi has been working on innovative mobile applications since its formation in 2002. It has provided development and design consultancy on a range of projects including mobile banking and sports betting applications.
