Mobile Gaming Gets More Players

The number of people playing real money games on their mobile devices is growing, and so is the number of companies willing to provide the technology.

Nextpeer is one of the newest to join the software development fray. A start-up out of Isreal, Nextpeer specializes in enabling multiplayer gaming for games already out on mobile devices. Developers can integrate Nextpeer’s code into their game design to allow players to play against current, new, and worldwide friends. Rather than have to reinvent the wheel of social platforms, a company like Nextpeer allows game designers to do what they do best–design great games.

Nextpeer’s technology features Facebook integration, the ability for game tournaments, instant access to a huge player base, analytics, and support. It made a successful debut on the Apple iOS platform, and now it’s all revved up for the Android Market.

“When people think about playing together in mobile games, we want the first thing that goes through their head to be Nextpeer,” Shai Magizmof, the company’s chief executive officer and co-founder, said.

What does this have to do with gambling online? Everything.

Small-Bet, a games-of-skill developer and wagering platform, has created a partnership with Nextpeer to bring more real money wagers to the mobile table. On iOS platforms, this means it will allow real-money betting between players to be introduced to games (as long as it jives the Apple’s terms of use).

Whether it’s a friendly wager between friends or a tournament full of fees and entries, Nextpeer technology and mobile gaming innovation will make for some great headlines in the months (weeks? days?) to come.
