Spin3 And Microgaming Bring Vegas Favourite Keno Game To Mobile Phones Worldwide.

microgaming Spin3 (, the leading wireless casino system provider powered by Microgaming, the world's largest online gaming software provider, today introduced Keno for the mobile phone. The ever popular bingo-style game has finally made the transition from Microgaming's online casino operations to the mobile phone.

Expanding the GameWire 2.1 mobile suite to include ten classic casino games, Keno is now available for adults who sign up and download the game onto their mobile phones from a Spin3-powered wireless casino. The game offers a maximum jackpot of £500,000. Spin3 is the exclusive distributor of Microgaming's mobile software system GameWire 2.1. It is the only wireless casino system to offer three progressive jackpot games including Fruit Fiesta, Treasure Nile and Major Millions with a minimum jackpot of $250,000, all connected to the entire network of Microgaming online casinos worldwide.

A play-for-fun version of Keno is also available as part of the SpinFone mobile system. SpinFone represents the most advanced and expansive play-for-fun interactive mobile casino system available in the world today. The SpinFone system allows for a multi-player, networked game experience, where individual users compete against each other for top scores which can be viewed on online leader boards and linked to prizes. The system enables businesses to communicate with users, organize tournaments and manage interactive Web and Wireless promotional activities.

Bets start as low as 0.5 coins, and players must predict which of the twenty balls numbered one through 80 will be drawn from a virtual "basket". The jackpot for Keno is based on the amount of numbers matched, compared to those selected by the player. This is then multiplied by the player's original wager. The more numbers a player chooses, and the more numbers hit, the greater the payout. By taking advantage of the variable bet, allowing selection of up to fifteen of the eighty numbers on the board in one play, players have a significant chance of winning.

"The introduction of Keno continues Spin3's strategy to offer a range of different casino experiences through the mobile phone," said Matti Zinder, CEO, Spin3. "Keno is simple and fun. We anticipate that this immensely popular game will attract a new type of player: research indicates many women are dominant in the online gaming arena and this alternative to the traditional casino slot reels will prove attractive to them."

Spin3 will be exhibiting at 3GSM Asia on 16-18 October, 2006. Keno will be available for demonstration at the Spin3 booth #C32.
