Small-Bet to create substantial new revenue stream for iOS Game Developers

New platform to capitalise on gamerrsquo;s competitive streak


London, UK.nbsp; July 29th, 2013. Small-Bet Ltd today announced the launch of its innovative new P2P skills-based wagering platformndash; a brand new concept in skills-based gaming that will be attractive to Gamers, and potentially profitable for Game Developers.

Small-Bet is determined to drive a new revenue steam for Game Developers, and provides the tools they need to integrate the platform into new and existing games. Through simple integration of the companyrsquo;s SDK, developers will quickly be able to add in-game skill based wagering to any game.

Gamers carry on as normal and just play their favourite games against their friends and familyndash; but this time for more than just pride.nbsp;They can each now place small wagers against each other relative to the outcome of each skills-based mini-game. For example, in Small-Betrsquo;s initial launch,rdquo;Definitionsrdquo;, players battle in a skills-based quiz, wagering their chosen stake on each roundndash; winners taking the stakes!

nbsp;ldquo;This is an untapped revenue stream for developers. We all know that gamers love head-to-head competition to show who is more skillful, and we just upped the stakesndash; Real cash winnings for the victor, and Real revenue benefits for our development partnersrdquo; commented Neil Spence, Managing Director of Small-Bet.

Neil added,ldquo;Wersquo;re as excited about the platform as we are about the steady flow of world class partners wersquo;ll announce in the coming weeks. We can also promise a healthy line up of great games!rdquo;

nbsp;ldquo;Wersquo;ve been developing the platform for the past 7 months, and firmly believe that the SDK will become a firm favourite with game developers, as they quickly appreciate the ease of integration and support we offerrdquo; added Xen Latagan, Chief Operating Officer.

The platform works on any iOS game, and is equally compelling in sports, action and puzzle games where skill is required. Developers will be pleased to hear that all payment mechanisms are handled by the back-end, in a partnership with PayPal. The company also expects to add other payment options, including Optimal Payments, Clickandbuy, Visa and many more.

Small-Bet is initially available in the UK, France and most states in the USA. The group also expects to operate in China, Russia, Korea, India, Pakistan, Africa and Mexico in 2014.
