Available in 2008, Phantom EFX casino and card games will be
offered to mobile users for the first time
CEDAR FALLS, IA, Oct. 4 /CNW/ - Phantom EFX, the leading developer and
publisher of interactive card and casino titles for PC and Mac, today announce
a multi-year contract with Phantom Fiber Corporation (PHFB:OTCBB), a leading
wireless transaction enablement company specializing in the gaming and
entertainment sector. Under the terms of the agreement, Phantom Fiber will
port several of Phantom EFX's most popular games to more than 1,000 mobile
devices, including cellular phones and PDAs. The downloadable games will have
the capacity to connect to a real-time, online gaming community or be played
independently in a non-connected mode.
Phantom EFX, a separate entity from Phantom Fiber outside of this
contract, has in its proprietary game collection some of the top-selling PC
and internet-based card and casino titles available in the market today. The
agreement with Phantom Fiber allows players to utilize any of the more than
1,000 mobile devices to enjoy Phantom EFX's popular gaming titles while away
from a hard lined PC or laptop. Available the first half of 2008, the initial
Phantom EFX mobile games will include classic table games, slot machines and
video poker games currently found in the Phantom EFX PC titles.
"We are very eager to utilize the Phantom Fiber mobile platform and could
not be more pleased with the vivid graphics, extraordinary speed and technical
sophistication that they presented to us," stated Jim Thompson, President of
Phantom EFX. "With some of the most superior technologies on the market, we
are confident that fans of our PC titles are going to take full advantage the
mobile product offering and provide an instant customer base for the mobile
games," Thompson added.
Jeff Halloran, Chairman and CEO of Phantom Fiber Corporation stated,
"From our initial meetings with Phantom EFX, we recognized the immediate
synergies between our technologies. The quality graphics and world class game
offerings of their organization, coupled with the connected and non-connected
functionality of our mobile solution, combines to make a very exciting mobile
offering. Together we have constructed a mobile strategy to ensure rapid
adoption and broad distribution of the products."
The Phantom EFX mobile game rollout is expected in the first half of
2008, where a selection of games will be available for download online. A
download purchase price has not yet been determined.
