Mahjong Time Signs a Multi-Year Contract With Phantom Fiber Corporation to Create a Mobile Extension to Their Leading Online Mahjong Gaming Platform(October 30, 2008)
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/30/08 -- Mahjong Time, the leading software provider for the online mahjong gaming community, today announced a multi-year contract with Phantom Fiber Corporation (OTCBB: PHFB), a leading wireless transaction enablement company specializing in the gaming and entertainment sector. Under the terms of the deal, Phantom Fiber will receive an integration fee and will then share in the ongoing revenue generated from the mobile subscribers.
The integration will allow Mahjong Time to continue delivering the functionality, graphics and speed that users have come to expect from their industry leading software platform and internet offering to over 1,000 handset types. In addition to this, the mobile extension will also offer features that have established Mahjongtime.com as the number one online Mahjong community; these features include multiple game types, multiple languages, practice play, and tournament play. The mobile product will operate on hundreds of device types including Java phones, Apple iPhone, Blackberry, Palm, Microsoft Pocket/PC and Smartphone based handheld devices from anywhere in the world.
"We are quickly being recognized as the dominant mahjong provider in the online arena and we have a strong brand in the Asian market, but I think we all realize that the Asian market is a very mobile and technical savvy geographic area," said William Sutjiadi, CEO of Mahjong Time. "We knew it was a matter of time before we would have to provide a mobile solution. Choosing Phantom Fiber was easy. Their ability to provide the only mobile solution that works globally, their unprecedented support for handsets, and most of all their experience in mobile multi-user environments will ensure the success of this project."
Jeff Halloran, Chairman & CEO of Phantom Fiber, stated, "This agreement has a number of benefits for Phantom Fiber. We recognize the magnitude of the Asian market and their passion for Mahjong. Extending the premier Mahjong platform to a mobile environment will extend Phantom Fiber's reach into those markets. Our multi-user experience from the gaming space and our ability to support multiple languages also blends nicely with our technology. We have been talking with Mahjong Time for some time and have watched them grow in popularity and have some great successes. We are glad the time is right to work with Mahjong Time and share in those successes."
The solution will provide the game content in a number of formats. The player can play against the computer or fully interact with the online community. By using the same login credentials as the internet, a player can search for friends who may be playing online via the internet and join the same games and contests as any other internet player, only from their mobile device.
