precisely and bwin reports earnings and forward guidance on Fri 4/14... perfect forum to announce go forward strategy.....
He's building more than just gaming's next Evolution. Game Console Quality on Mobile ( pixel based done) with digital media distribution as easy as a snap.. This is going to be a 1000 fold leap over competitors. Mattrick said he was going to "leverage their IP"... with the NaturalMotion acquisition and the licensing bought yesterday, and locks on social/game mechanics patents strong hold - this pup is going to become a really BIG DOG on the block. WOOOF.
That 170M was a sign of institutional confidence in DM's pipe -because bookie's know the point spread long before they bet. And Don Mattrick said "we've got some BIG BETS" coming. The bookies know that bet and the spread.
2 US Partners to launch ...eom.
The who is pretty obvious. Bwin's exec just laid it out. Zynga via social proxy (FB) to masses. Their strategy is solid, the foundation took a while but its about to engage.....
* Tech: 1 platform to dev & deploy RMG on iOS/Android/Web, in multi format on the fly.
* Regulation -
* Partnerships -
Z backed off becoming a regulated casino - too many hurdles and the path they chose was smart and closes the time gap nicely. It's nice to see the growth prospects for 2014.
Not actually. They told Wall Street what Wall Street wanted to hear. Problem is Wall Street listened and Short shops missed the boat betting for a big downturn and Zynga's share price doubled. Now, "if" Zynga launches either a winning franchise OR a real casino offering, it'll doubles or tripples from here ... They told you they would build game franchises and that they would "evaluate" all options including "social casino gaming".
