Dumadu launches play-for-cash Pocket Bowling 3D HD game featuring cashplay.co's player-versus-player monetization platform

Prague, Czech Republic, 19 February 2014 - Dumadu's Pocket Bowling 3D HD has become the first Dumadu title to incorporate cashplay.co's Apple approved player-versus-player cash tournament monetization platform.

A play-for-cash version of Pocket Bowling 3D HD, the high-definition version of Dumadu's massively popular bowling franchise, hit the App Store in late January, and is the first in a long line of Dumadu titles scheduled to feature cashplay.co's groundbreaking monetization platform.

Headquartered in Bangalore, India, Dumadu is one of the world's leading game design and development companies, offering a wide range of mobile games for the iOS, Android and Windows platforms, among them Pocket Bowling 3D, Pool 3D and the Dark Runner series.

Thanks to a landmark decision by the Apple Developer team, cashplay.co recently became the only provider of player-versus-player cash tournaments to receive approval from Apple's App Store for real money payouts to iOS users.

Cashplay.co monetizes mobile and online games via player-versus-player cash tournaments, enabling developers to generate revenue from their games by offering users the ability to compete against each other for real money.

Cashplay.co offers cash tournaments for skill games in almost all countries worldwide including the US. It allows gamers to easily make payments via PayPal, Visa and will soon go live with direct-to-carrier billing in selected markets. 

Jarrod Epps, CEO of cashplay.co, said: "We're thrilled that Dumadu have brought their first cashplay.co-enabled game to market, and we're confident that it will be the first of many successful and lucrative titles to feature our cash-based skill-gaming platform. Our relationship with Dumadu can serve as a model for similar partnerships with other developers who are looking for an alternative to the broken mainstream monetization models -- advertising and in-app purchases."

Narasimha Reddy, CEO of Dumadu, said: "We're excited to offer Pocket Bowling fans the chance to compete for cash worldwide. Rather than distracting from our gameplay with ads and other interruptions, cashplay.co's monetization platform makes our games even more exciting and we look forward to releasing more titles featuring player-versus-player tournaments."

Having received $3 million in funding, cashplay.co offers easy integration into online and mobile games for a developer community needing a monetization model that doesn't detract from the game experience. Backed by an experienced online gaming team using best-in-class technology, cashplay.co operates all the fraud-protection, geo-blocking, client-identification and cheat-prevention systems necessary for handling real cash in games. Cashplay.co is also the only cash gaming platform which has agreements to accept credit and debit card payments and withdrawals worldwide.
