San Jose, Costa Rica (PRWEB) December 20, 2006
Digital Gaming Networks, (DGN) announced its entry into the online gaming support space today with the acquisition of the assets of Gibraltar-based Dobrosoft. Digital Gaming Network sees this as the centerpiece of its push toward becoming a leading multi-player software provider. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
Digital Gaming Network is installing a new team of highly regarded and experienced industry professionals to take over the new company's operations. We are adding many features to the product and are focused on providing the "ultimate poker platform" to gaming companies so that they may take advantage of the "unprecedented opportunities" in the online poker and peer to peer gaming space, according to company spokesperson Nicole Sims.
"We are pleased that the core Dobrosoft platform gives us a leap into the marketplace and allows us to land on a solid base." The company has already contractually secured some major network partners that will be announced shortly adding significantly to the new network's player liquidity. "We are poised to take the industry by storm as new partners integrate over the next six to eight weeks." The privately held firm will be making several major announcements in the coming weeks and months, as additional Network Partners publicly announce their move to the DGN platform.
Digital Gaming Network has observed a "sea of change" in the industry in recent months, where many gaming operators are seeking out new options that ensure robust and flexible platforms in order to take advantage of increased market opportunity. On the heels of a new Merrill Lynch report that predicts the online gaming industry will grow from $12 billion USD per year today to $528 billion USD by 2015, DGN seems to be at the right place at the right time. The company is positioned to take advantage of market forces and to provide enhanced services to large gaming operators.
Dobrosoft has been in operation since 2000 and was one of the first companies to bring multi-player poker software to the industry. Dobrosoft's owners will be working with DGN's new management team to transition the operation over the next 90 days. Dobrosoft's software team (60+ individuals, most with 6+ years of online gaming software experience) will be retained by the new company and will be bolstered by the addition of several industry savvy IT professionals and management staff. Digital Gaming Network has already invested heavily in the new venture and increased the staff by 50 percent with a hand-picked team of experienced industry executives, software engineers, managers and operational staff members. "In preparation for the take over, the company has already made significant investments in human resources, hardware upgrades and in the increased scalability of the product."
Digital Gaming Network will be showcasing its new features and platform at the ICE Show (International Casino Exhibition) in London, UK, Jan. 23rd-25th.
