Cometa Win With World Cup Shootout

New Mobile Gambling Game Gives Footie Fans A Chance To Score

For Immediate Release:

April 20th. Football fans worldwide will soon be able to spice up their world cup season by playing World Cup Shootout, a new gambling game for mobile phones, created by Cometa Games.

World Cup Shootout challenges players to beat the goalkeeper in a fast-paced game of skill, placing bets on the outcome of each penalty kick. The game has been designed to appeal to every football fan, so even a mobile gaming newcomer or novice will be able to pick up and play the game in seconds.

Players bet cash on each kick and can aim the ball at different areas of the goal, all of which are worth a different amount if a goal is scored there.

Mobile gambling expert Cometa is launching the game at the World Telemedia Expo, which takes place in Berlin on April 24-26. The April launch date ensures the game will be widely available for the start of the 2006 World Cup in June.

World Cup Shoot Out is one of the first games to be made available on Cometa's New Mobile Casino application, which allows players to download and play games, quickly, conveniently, securely input credit/debit card information and request payouts from winnings.

World Cup Shootout uses Cometa's advanced Arcadia gambling platform which provides fast, secure betting through mobile phone handsets and provides complete support for mobile gaming.

Rob Anderson, the Managing Director of Cometa Games, says, "World Cup Shootout has been designed to capitalise on the capabilities of mobile phone handsets and the way users interact with them. It's simple, accessible and fun. Like all of Cometa's games, the Arcadia system ensures that the gambling mechanism never gets in the way of the player's enjoyment. It's perfect for a few minutes play, at half time for example, or whenever the player has a short time to play. Cometa's priority is to ensure that every game, every session and every bet is simple, convenient and easily understood for the player. We're delighted to be launching World Cup Shootout and we hope football fans worldwide will enjoy it too."
