Gamesys Deploys Rapids ThinkPhone Suite

Rapid Mobile Media, which provides mobile application and service delivery software platforms, has announced the availability of the first gaming titles delivered by Gamesys using the ThinkPhone suite of technologies. The graphically-rich and interactive slot games offer users the chance to win huge progressive jackpots and include a Deal or No Deal theme; the 1920s-themed Diamond Bonanza; and a seasonal release, Christmas Bonanza, which has already enabled one lucky winner to pick up a jackpot of over 5,000.
Rapid Mobile says that the ThinkPhone Deliver provisioning platform enables the downloadable applications to automatically be delivered to the widest possible range of handsets, maximising the reach for the service whilst ensuring every user experiences the best possible quality gaming experience.
The provisioning platform is fully integrated with Gamesys gaming servers and back office systems, providing a secure, real time transactional environment for mobile gameplay. Gamesys will be launching its first casino product, Blackjack, at Christmas, while Roulette, Bingo and a Mobile Scratchcard are scheduled for early 2009, with more products expected to follow.
An important feature of our approach is that our mobile products can offer the same games our members already enjoy on the web, says Steve Clark, Strategic Operations Director at Gamesys. Aside from the familiarity and loyalty this brings, it means that we share jackpots between the web and mobile, dramatically increasing the possible win. Mobile will become a significant part of our overall business; its a very attractive product for new players, and it gives our existing members a platform to use when theyre not near a PC.
The ThinkPhone development philosophy focuses on user interaction to create easy-to-use, intuitive applications. Porting and testing effort is minimized, thanks to a provisioning process which automatically optimises applications at the point of delivery to match individual handset capabilities. This means that engineering costs and time to market for applications are minimised, and the service provider does not have to expend resources addressing the increasingly diverse universe of mobile phone types.
