New mobile app to be developed
A new partnership has emerged on the market recently – the one between International Game Technology (IGT) and mobile technology firm Joingo which will together develop a MegaJackpots Mobile App that will provide IGT players with immediate access to real time jackpot levels and information on IGT games.
The main benefit for IGT is that Joingo™’s Mobile Platform will connect it to its players and boost its business with an interactive, branded and personalized application, IGT's first targeted at U.S. customers. The MegaJackpots app is available at iTunes, Android Market and Blackberry AppWorld.
The app uses Location Awareness to supply geographically relevant data for Featured Games, Where to Play and Winners, and it also enables players to interact and provide feedback through the app's connectivity with Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
It has been stated by Joingo CEO Steve Boyle: “With identical stand-alone apps utilizing ‘push’ technology for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry, plus mobile web and MMS/SMS for feature phones, IGT can seamlessly reach 99 percent of mobile users, an exceptional feat in the very fragmented mobile domain.”
