Spin3 Polishes Off 2008 With Silver Win at Mobile Entertainment Awards

Spin3 Recognised as Leading Gambling Service Provider at visiongain's MEA Awards; Spin3 Celebrates Win With the Launch of Its Fourth Game for the iPhone

LONDON--(Marketwire - December 17, 2008) - Leading full service mobile gambling solutions provider Spin3 (www.spin3.com)*, powered by Microgaming (www.microgaming.com), the world's largest online gaming software provider, has won the Silver Award in the Best Mobile Game / Gambling Service Provider category at visiongain's Mobile Entertainment Awards.

visiongain's Mobile Entertainment Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of companies in the mobile entertainment industry. The panel of independent analysts at the inaugural Mobile Entertainment Awards recognised Spin3's achievement in developing the first commercially available casino games for the iPhone mobile digital device.

To celebrate its success, Spin3 has launched its fourth game for the iPhone. The classic casino game Roulette joins Blackjack, Tomb Raider and Major Millions as the fourth game developed specifically for the iPhone. The games are fully hosted online and are accessed via the iPhone's web-browser eliminating game download and set-up times and allowing players to instantly access the games. A demo of the games can be found at https://i.spin3.com and the games can be played for real at the soon to be launched All Slots mobile casino - http://i.allslotscasino.com.

Matti Zinder, Head of Spin3, said, "The arrival of the next generation of smart phones, such as the iPhone and Google's Android-based G-Phone has raised the bar in terms of what mobile content can achieve. Developing the first and only real-play commercially available iPhone casino games is a great step forward for the mobile gaming industry as it offers an experience that is on a par with an online casino, but is completely mobile. Winning this award is fantastic as it recognises the leadership Spin3 has taken in driving innovation and change in the industry."

Julian Pasin, Head Telecoms Analysts, visiongain, said, "We are delighted to honour Spin3 with the silver award for Best Mobile Game / Gambling Service Provider as it has shown real dedication and enthusiasm for the mobile entertainment industry. Spin3's iPhone casino games are an excellent example of what can be done through smart phone technology and a great achievement. It is clear that Spin3 is at the forefront of the mobile gaming world."

The Mobile Entertainment Awards were held on 10th December 2008 as part of the Mobile Entertainment Conference in Central London.
