Skill games network signs three new distribution partners.

Stockholm, Sweden, 18 September 2008

Swedish online game developer Jadestone announced today that its skill games network GamArena is growing fast. With the addition of three new distribution partners in Ekstrabladet, Nordic Gaming Group and ToucanWIN, the online reach of GamArena continues to expand across European media, gaming and community sites.

Ekstrabladet is Denmark’s leading tabloid paper with some 800 thousand readers. In its game section it has now launched GamArena skill games under the label Mini Vegas. As part of the GamArena Premium service, site operator Jadestone has customized the visual appearance of the site to match the Mini Vegas brand.

Nordic Gaming Group is a leading European provider of sports betting, poker and casino games. With the addition of the GamArena games, scheduled to go live later this month, customers will be able to enjoy the full GamArena suite of popular skill games like Scarab Solitaire, Yatzy and Cannonball. The games will be available on both gaming sites operated by Nordic Gaming Group: NordicBet and Triobet.

ToucanWIN is a new soft games brand, which has just launched a skill games site, where both free or cash wager based GamArena games can be played.

“We’ve always seen a broad audience for GamArena style casual money games”, said Tobias Nissen, Business Development Director at Jadestone. “So we’re very happy to welcome these three new high quality partners to the GamArena network. Despite their diverse site offerings and content styles, the GamArena games will add value to their existing customers and site visitors. It’s a validation of our belief that there’s a place for gaming wherever people gather on the net.”

GamArena is an online business-to-business skill games network for the media and gaming industries. With more than €20,000,000 in paid out winnings and a cash game being played every three seconds, the service is offered through a network of leading European media and gaming sites. The full GamArena experience is available in more than 25 European languages.
