You might have thought all the heat and the excitement had left the real-money mobile gaming sector earlier in 2014 when companies such as Zynga and Glu pulled back their activity.
But maybe the key companies of the future were just waiting for the fluff to blow off and real innovation to start.
According to real money mobile gaming platform Gamblit Games, it’s definitely a case of there’s plenty more to come.
It’s signed deals with three mobile developers who will be using its technology to launch what they hope will be the next generation of mobile gambling experiences.
Looking for doubles
One such is the European arm of Chinese online giant Shanda. Shanda Games International Europe will reveal its roadmap of Gamblit-integrated titles later in 2014.
Los Angeles outfit, Gamiker is launching its free-to-play match-3 meets collectible dragons game Hatching Dragons soon, with more titles to follow.
Finally, Seoul, South Korea-based Flexball has been set up by veterans from Nexon, NCsoft and Gamehi and it will also be using Gamblit’s tech.
Who will win?
Using its platform, Gamblit provides developers with all of the technology, operations, account management, security, gambling licenses, regulations and compliance elements required.
“We’re thrilled that our first partners are some of the world’s top mobile game publishers and innovators who constantly push mobile gambling forward,” said Gamblit CEO Eric Meyerhofer.
“This is an exciting time. With mobile technology available to almost every audience, the opportunities are endless. Allowing mobile games to enable gambling delivers an enhanced form of entertainment that will keep players engaged on a whole new level.”
