John Clelland, vice president of global marketing for IGT Interactive Group, said: “Success in today’s mobile gaming environment is about pairing explosive content with an irresistible community of other players.
“IGT therefore looks for the widest possible distribution and the easiest-to-use technology to attract and retain customers. PlayPhone’s carrier relationships, world-class social features and direct carrier payments will entice millions of new subscribers to experience the best Vegas casino environment outside the Strip.”
