On March 1st, 2009, UK fans of online games from IGT and Barcrest will soon be able to enjoy them on their mobile phones thanks to an agreement signed this week between software specialist Million 2-1 and well-known gaming operator Rank. Million-2-1 is a subsidiary of IGT and said that it would soon debut Hi-5, Elvis Top 20 and Ooh Aah Dracula to Rank players via the Blue Square and Mecca brands. It will then improve its gaming portfolio with the debut of a mobile version of Rainbow Riches from Barcrest alongside with well-loved IGT gaming titles Cleopatra, Monopoly and Cluedo.

Chris Sheffield, the Director and General Manager for Million-2-1 said that gamers will be familiar with many of these casino games from bars, arcades, casino facilities, bingo clubs, wagering shops and online casino facilities. Sheffield added that bringing the games to the mobile gaming platform will make them more convenient to the players.

Customers can join wherever they are in the United Kingdom whenever they want to. He said that they are very sure that it will prove to be a big success. Million-2-1 stated that the games have been made to function like their land-based casino counterparts with gaming graphics carefully imitated for good display on hundreds of different mobile handset types.

Million-2-1 also said that they have also included age verification procedures and location-based services to ensure security compliance. Million-2-1 also said that the casino games were made utilizing the Orbis registration, age verification and banking engine so that Blue Square customers could start playing immediately without having to register another gaming account. Simon Woolf, the Mobile Product Manager for Blue Square said that this collaboration continues to show their commitment to mobile gambling. He added that the quality of these mobile games gives players with a top class experience.

Woolf said that their customers can now enjoy their favorite games in a Grosvenor Casino facility, a Mecca Bingo club and on their cellular phone with Blue Square and Mecca.
