Playtech’s Mobile Gaming App To Help Repeal UIGEA?
06 February 2010
Playtech, the largest supplier of online gaming software, has released the new, revolutionary Mobile Web Apps. This software brings many gambling games, such as Texas hold em poker, blackjack, craps, and video poker, straight to a cell phone or other personal mobile device. The software places a strong emphasis on security and safety.
Other games included in Playtech’s new app are bingo, and slots. This has mouths watering because Playtech already has large progressive jackpots running on this software.
