Jadestone signs partnership with Ongame Network
Ongame Network has reached an agreement with Jadestone Networks to add the company’s Mini Games to the Ongame poker client. The new games include Blackjack, Roulette and Slots, and will be rolled out during the first quarter of 2011.
Several of Ongame’s network partners already utilize Jadestone’s products on their sites, but Mini Games will be positioned inside the poker client, so a player can bet on Roulette with a sweep of the mouse while a poker hand plays out. The new partnership adds business value to Ongame’s poker product as industry benchmarks point to a potential 7-10% revenue increase in regards to GGR for in-client casino games.
“This is the first step towards realizing our ambition to offer a full casino experience," says Martin Lerby, Head of Ongame. “It extends our offering beyond just poker, presenting an enhanced gaming experience to players as well as new opportunities for our partners.”
The deal also provides an opportunity for Jadestone Networks, as this partnership indirectly gives them the chance to display their product to over 25 potential operators on Ongame’s global network.
"In all successful partnerships, the sum is greater than the parts. Like mixing nitrate with glycerine, the recipe for a major gaming blast is to combine Jadestone'ʹs rapid fire casino side games with Ongame'ʹs powerful poker application. Players are going to love the action," says Tobias Nissen, Managing Director at Jadestone Networks.
