GSN Games, a subsidiary of the Sony-owned Game Show Network, has launched a mobile web version of its GSN Cash Games site, allowing US players to win cash prizes from skill games.The company claims the offering is the first mobile-optimised cash tournament site available to US players, and has been developed for smartphones and tablets using GSN’s online cash tournament site WorldWinner.com.
The site was built using HTML5 technology, making GSN Cash Games available to as many devices as possible, and was developed in partnership with Boston-based open web technology specialist Bocoup.
The mobile site has gone live with Solitaire Rush, one of WorldWinner’s best-performing titles, with tournaments based around Wheel of Fortune and Catch-21 to go live in the first quarter of the year. Additional titles will be rolled out later in the year.
The site allows players to enter free-play practice tournaments, or choose cash games based on the number of players, entry fee or cash prize. Players can also make deposits or withdraw winnings from their devices, and WorldWinner users can access their existing accounts from the app.
“With the growing population of mobile gamers, GSN Games is thrilled to offer skill-based cash tournaments through the GSN Cash Games mobile-optimized site,” GSN Games senior mobile product manager Jeremy Stein commented. “The GSN Cash Games mobile site will bring our most popular titles and the excitement of competing for cash prizes to players, wherever they are.”
Discussing his company’s partnership with GSN, Bocoup managing director Boaz Sender said the pair were creating new industry standards and breaking down barriers for future HTML5 development.
“This partnership demonstrates the high caliber of talent and commitment to innovation at GSN Games, and we are excited to continue our collaboration in the coming months,” Sender said.
