Another deal has been nailed recently by Betable, this time with Los Angeles-based developer and publisher of cross-platform social and mobile games SGN, co-founded by MySpace founder Chris De Wolfe, and responsible for the making of hit titles such as Fluff Friends Rescue, Jewels of the Amazon, Bingo Blingo and Panda Jam.
The deal will enable SGN to activate gambling features in a selection of mobile titles, which should be released in the first half of 2013.
According to SGN co-founder and chief executive officer, Chris DeWolfe, “We are excited to offer our users who love our games the ability to ‘up the ante’ and play for real money. As thought leaders and innovators in the game space, our partnership with Betable makes perfect sense. Real money mobile gaming is in the future.”
“We recognize SGN as a prolific developer and publisher of successful games and our partnership will further solidify their market leadership position,” added Christopher Griffin, founder and chief executive officer of Betable. “Real-money gaming will play a major role in the future success of the online social and mobile gaming space, and Betable’s platform will allow SGN to capitalize on an early mover advantage.”
