3GSM Good News for Mobile Gambling

Barcelona conference unveils new technology making mobile games easier

Wednesday 28th February 2007

At the Barcelona 3GSM mobile conference, there was good news for pioneering mobile gambling operators like Slotland.com. Developing technologies are making it easier, cheaper and more fun to play casino games like slot machines on mobile phones.

John Lancelet, Mobile Games Director at Slotland.com was excited about the new technologies on show: “The hottest topic in Barcelona was mobile video and mobile TV. Everyone is excited about delivering music videos, short films and TV news to mobile phones” he said. “What excites me about that is that any phone capable of handling video multimedia is also great for playing slot machines and that means more players coming on board.”

“At 3GSM, all the new phones the handset manufacturers were showing off had higher display resolution -- 240 x 320 is becoming the standard” he continued, “that’s just what you want for mobile games like our slot machines and video poker games.”

There was a lot to take in at the massive international exposition that covered everything mobile – from hardware and handsets and telecom infrastructure to entertainment and content.

One barrier to mobile gambling is still the cost of data transfer. Visiting a lot of WAP sites on your phone’s Internet browser can add up. Lancelet observed a trend that will improve that too.

“It seems more GSM network operators are offering flat rate wireless data tariffs.”

With nine unique slot machines and video poker games on their web site and now five also available on mobile phones and PDAs, Slotland.com is one of the world’s most popular and trusted online and mobile casinos.
