On Wednesday, a new mobile slot game featuring intellectual property from Glu’s popular Samurai vs. Zombies Defense was launched in the UK.
A leading global developer and publisher of freemium games for mobile devices, Glu Mobile says this is the company’s first real-money mobile gambling offering.
Samurai vs. Zombies Defense is now available to mobile real-money gamers in the UK through Probability’s distribution network.
“We are pleased to expand our mobile portfolio to include real-money gambling,” says Niccolo de Masi, Chief Executive Officer of Glu Mobile. “We anticipate that real-money gambling will continue to gain momentum globally and believe that with this offering, Glu is well positioned to capitalize to the extent that additional markets adjust regulations. We plan to leverage Probability’s extensive partner network to further extend Glu’s successful original IP to new demographics.”
According to details presented in today’s announcement, Glu and Probability entered into a strategic relationship for real-money gambling in 2012 and they “plan to offer additional Glu-branded mobile gambling games.”
