World Gaming – World Gaming plc, a global pioneer in I-gaming technologies, today announced the signing of a software licensing agreement with Sona Innovations Inc., a leading North American provider of secure mobile solutions, that will see the introduction of wireless applications for its most popular games, blackjack, slots and sportsbook, before the end of the year.

Under the three-year agreement with Sona, World Gaming will be deploying three games on Microsoft’s Pocket PC – expected delivery November 2001 – and Palm OS(R) – expected delivery December 2001 – built on the Sona Wireless Platform(TM).

Microsoft’s Pocket PC and Palm OS devices were chosen for World Gaming’s first wireless software suite, due to screen size and capabilities, input method, power management, network bandwidth, device memory, graphics and processor power.

“The wireless market is growing exponentially and it represents a very real opportunity for World Gaming to expand its global presence – particularly in Europe and Asia where wireless gaming is more advanced,” said Michael Aymong, CEO of World Gaming. “Wireless is an exciting new opportunity for World Gaming – enlarging our total available market and increasing revenue streams for our existing products and services.”

World Gaming selected its most popular offerings – blackjack, slot machine, and sportsbook betting for the initial wireless suite, with plans to expand in the future. The new products will tap into the users of online casinos and sports betting, which dominate up to 73 percent of the online gaming market.

A recent Datamonitor report projects that revenues from the total mobile Situs Judi Online gaming markets in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific will grow from an estimated $950 million in 2001 to $17.5 billion in 2006. The international research firm also reports that Asia Pacific is currently the wireless gaming capital of the world, with 60 million gamers.

In Europe, 41 million currently play games on their mobile phones or PDAs, compared to 22 million in the US. By 2006, Europe will have over 150 million wireless gamers, while in the US, the number will grow to 124 million.

“Data is typically encrypted then decrypted, which has inherent security risks,” said Jeff Halloran, president and CEO of Sona Innovations. “The robust architecture of Sona’s technology is very unique, as it does not use public gateway servers and it rapidly deploys an animated presentation layer unlike any other wireless service. “Sona’s client software establishes a secure session on the Pocket PC or Palm operating platform and communicates directly with World Gaming’s servers. Through our unique end-to-end secure approach to deploying applications on handheld devices, we are able to deliver to World Gaming a wireless solution that provides the level of presentation, performance and protection the World Gaming community has come to expect. Being network carrier agnostic, Sona Innovation’s one of a kind solution becomes an immediate global platform to support World Gaming’s secure growth.”

World Gaming evaluated several vendors before choosing Sona Innovations. Sona was selected based upon the following criteria: a strong commitment to continued diligent support of World Gaming products and services, synergies of respective business models, number of wireless devices supported, ease of implementation, and security.

“Our new wireless suite of products is a plug-in solution, requiring no back-end integration, that leverages and extends existing World Gaming technologies, products and services,” said David Pasieka, COO of World Gaming. “Wireless technology is still in its infancy and continuously evolving. Standards, protocols, network and client device issues require significant and dedicated development resources. “Sona Innovations’ experience successfully delivering bullet-proof applications for the banking and brokerage industries has made the company the ideal supplier for World Gaming and has addressed our concerns over security.…

The 2013-’14 Premier League season has kicked off and will go down in history as the first one to use goal-line technology.

 

On the field, the first weekend appeared to be a continuation of the previous one.

 

Champions Manchester United, with the disgruntled Wayne Rooney starring alongside the exquisite Robin Van Persie and fast-improving Danny Welbeck, began with aplomb, despatching Michael Laudrup’s much-lauded Swansea City 4-1 at their Liberty Stadium. David Moyes could hardly have wished for a smoother landing into Alex Ferguson’s shoes.

 

Chelsea, with Jose Mourinho back at the helm, also hit the ground running, with an opening 45 minutes of dynamic attacking in their 2-0 defeat of newly-promoted Hull City.

 

The three Situs Judi Online teams who came up from the Championship all lost their opening games and failed to trouble their opponents’ goals, a depressing reiteration of the gap between England’s top two divisions.

 

Yet Manchester City’s 4-0 demolition of Newcastle confirmed there are also divisions within the Premier League.

 

After a barren summer in the transfer market in spite of a £70m war chest, Arsenal remain in the mire following a 3-1 home defeat to a resurgent Aston Villa, who had managed to hold on to their top striker Christian Benteke.

 

Arsene Wenger cuts an increasingly cornered figure, unwilling to overspend while bearing the brunt of a constituency of supporters increasingly furious at the Gunners’ inability to challenge for trophies. His players’ apparent fatalism and lethargy in their opening home match should give him more sleepless nights.

 

While Tottenham lost the last Champions League place to their North London rivals at the end of last season, their summer shopping, including the shrewd acquisitions of Brazilian international midfielder Paulinho and Spanish striker Roberto Soldado, and the transfer of England midfielder Scott Parker to Fulham, suggest Andre Villas-Boas has already planned on life without Gareth Bale, whose purchase Real Madrid have just over a week left to finalise.

 

The loss of two world-class performers in Bale and Luis Suarez, who wants out of Liverpool, would hurt the prestige of the Premier League, which missed out on most of the big name transfers this summer. Until this year it would have been unthinkable for Chelsea and Manchester City to be outbid by French teams, but they were in the case of Edinson Cavani (PSG) and Radamel Falcao (Monaco).

 

The Premier League remains a strong global brand, as attested to by its latest TV & internet deals, and the fact the World Cup will conclude this season is not news right now.

 

One man less than excited about the new campaign is probably Roy Hodgson, who has only 34% of the division to choose his England XI from. After a summer of failure from England’s U20 & U21 sides and the continued lack of a winter break in the domestic season, the league’s host nation’s prospects of glory in Brazil next summer look slim.

 

Meanwhile the premier carnival of cash carries on as usual.…
