Jadestone Announces Gala Coral As Launch Partner For New DiceArena Multiplayer Games Network

jadestone-160.jpg18 November 2008 (Stockholm, Sweden) – Jadestone Networks AB, the Swedish based owner and operator of the multiplayer skill games network GamArena, today made official that leading European gaming operator Gala Coral will be one of the selected launch partners for DiceArena, the new multiplayer games offering that will be opening up for players across Europe in the coming months.

The DiceArena games are multiplayer table games much like online poker. However, both the game mechanics and the visual design give them a broader and more casual friendly appeal, attractive to a wider audience than just poker players. From an operator perspective, the DiceArena Network is a fully managed game service, including multi-lingual support services for both players and business partners.

Gala Coral will launch on the DiceArena as one of the first wave of partners. It will promote DiceArena from all of its consumer sites and it is assumed that it will become a significant contributor of liquidity to the network. Joe Coughlin, Head of New Product Development, Gala Coral Group commented:

“We are very excited to be first to market with what we consider to be innovative and fresh online gaming content. These dice games address a very wide audience, especially those interested in poker, and they deliver high levels of entertainment for players.”

Andrew Pegler, UK Director for Jadestone, responded by saying:

“We consider DiceArena to be a premium offering and a concept that is unique and very exciting in the iGaming space. It follows that we want to work with premium partners to promote and to distribute our DiceArena multiplayer games. In Gala Coral we have found such a partner and we anticipate adding more once DiceArena is launched and people get to see just what a fun, fresh and exciting place it is.”

The DiceArena suite of games has been in development at Jadestone for almost two years. With a number of high profile network partners lined up for DiceArena games, it’s one of the biggest new product introductions in Jadestone’s history.
