California Mobile App Developer Looking to Hop On Legalized I-Gambling Train

15 May 2009, Staff Writer


California based mobile handset application provider Hop-On Inc is betting on Barney Frank's new online gambling laws passing through the House and Senate and are feverishly developing games for release on the iPhone as soon as it does.

Hop-on Inc's President and CEO Peter Michaels is on the record as saying "...we are in continued support of Rep. Barney Frank's proposed legislation to legalize Internet gambling, Hop-on is moving to release an app immediately after the passing of the bill."

They have already developed free play casino games suitable for iPhone that have been submitted to Apple for addition to their application store, and are well down the track in development of their 'play for real' games.  But these will likely never be added to Apples app store.  Rather, they will be offered as a browser based workaround that users can play from Hop-On's game site.

Currently, two gaming platform developers offer iPhone casino games...UK based Probability plc which made news recently with a platform sharing deal they recently did with mFuse, and Spin3 which powers the mobile casinos of a bunch of Microgaming licensee online casinos.  But with the industry still in its infancy, casinos offering iPhone games are still few and far between.

Two that do are Ladbrokes and 32 Red.  However both these casinos do not offer their services (mobile, iPhone or regular online casino) to US residents.  This could well change if the proposed legislation that Hop-On Inc is sweating on does in fact become law.
