888 to go mobile
In what experts are calling ‘the next frontier of online gaming’, 888 are taking the next steps towards releasing their casino software on a mobile platform.
Alex Reign, promotions department manager of 888, talked up the release.
“Most outstanding about the mobile casino launch is that new players and current players, alike, can access the same account on their mobile phone and personal computer,” Reign said. “Play online, play on your phone – all from the same account.”
Like its online equivalent, it will be free to download and will be compatible with over 340 handsets, which covers approximately 85 per cent of the European market. Players can download the casino from the wap.888.com site on their phone or by going to the online site and entering their mobile number.
It appears as though mobile gaming is the obvious next step for gaming companies as technology in the mobile phone industry improves. However, translating all the aspects and feel of an online casino to a small screen is a complicated process for software developers. Nevertheless, 888 remain positive about its launch.
“The graphics are amazing, the download takes a matter of moments, and the security measures are unbeatable,” Reign concluded. “Now, players can enjoy that great Vegas feeling anytime, anyplace.”
