Real money action on the iPhone from Supercasino

Online and interactive television gambling group NetPlayTV has announced the launch of its new Supercasino app for iPhone, which is now available from the Apple App Store. The app permits both play-for-free and real money action, and was designed by NetPlay in collaboration with specialist firm Miles Ahead.

The Supercasino app is not a standalone game, but an iPhone client for the Live Roulette and Autowheel TV shows which air, respectively, on Channel 5 and Sky in Britain.

Users can bet in real time using the app while the roulette wheel spins on the television screen, at the same time messaging the on-screen presenter.

“These groundbreaking moves in the mobile space show NetplayTV’s commitment to becoming the leading live gaming operator in the market, giving our customers access via telephone, web or mobile,” says NetPlayTV executive chairman Martin Higginson.

In related news, one of NetPlay’s non-executive directors, Moshe Edree, has stepped down in order to pursue other business interests. He has been replaced by Tim Mickley, who was a managing director at Collins Stewart where he led the gaming team.

Portomaso Gaming Invests in Gaming Platform

Portomaso Gaming, based in Malta, has invested Euro 500,000 toward improvements to its live dealer digital platform, which is the combination of casino and studio within one product.

As a result of the investment there have been an additional 25 job opportunities created in Malta.

“The new technology employs technology through which the games can be accessed from both desktop computers and mobile devices and is compatible with all browsers and operating systems,” said a company spokesman. “All streams are broadcast in high definition for a better experience all around.”

Discussing the previous platform, the spokesman explained that it was developed with the technology of the time and analogue streaming hindered the operation.

“The advanced features of the previous platform were a disadvantage to us since it restricted operators to a fixed games lobby, although the end user could open up to 16 games in one screen.

“The new platform was built with flexibility in mind to enable operators to design their own games lobby, and all games are HTML5 compatible meaning that they will work on any device,” he said.
