Consorteum Holdings Launches New Mobile Results App for Popular Keno Game

ThreeFiftyNine Completes Development of a Mobile Results App for Online and Casino Game, Keno

TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Consorteum Holdings, Inc. ("Consorteum" or the "Company") (OTCQB: CSRH), an international transaction management and mobile publishing company, today announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, ThreeFiftyNine, Inc. ("TFN"), in partnership with XpertX, Inc., has completed the development work on a new mobile results app for live Keno. With proof-of-concept now validated, this new app is designed to deliver a state-of-the-art mobile Keno solution to virtually any mobile device, regardless of operating system.

"We are very excited to join forces with XpertX, a recognized leader and innovator in Keno gaming since 1987. We believe the ability to deliver real time gaming results to Keno players will be extremely well received in every territory we introduce our application into. For the first time, a Keno player will be able to use his mobile phone and gain access to the results of Keno games played at many casinos across the United States. Mobile is clearly what the Keno customers want and the ability to view Keno results is just the first step in being able to offer a pay-for-play version of this game wherever allowed," Craig Fielding, CEO of Consorteum and president of ThreeFiftyNine, stated.

Consortium worked closely with XpertX, widely recognized as an industry leader in Keno gaming, to validate the mobile app capabilities. XpertX is also the top manufacturer and supplier of live-action Keno systems and Keno-associated products and services. Through a collaborative effort, ThreeFiftyNine and XpertX will provide integral components for the application. ThreeFiftyNine's contributions primarily involve:

  • Establishment of game server and various integration functions
  • Platform and technology services
  • Publishing and distribution of the app
  • Various support services, including database management, hosting, billing and data protection, and privacy considerations and compliance

XpertX will enable ThreeFiftyNine to utilize its proven math engine and game logic for the mobile offering, and will contribute the following:

  • Back-end Keno software and platform ensuring the integrity of the database
  • Backup and recovery to protect all gaming data and prevent loss of data
  • Management of all regulatory approval, licensing and auditing in each territory the app is introduced into
  • Knowledge of intricacies of Keno and player preferential trends
  • Wide-area Keno progressive capabilities with life-changing jackpot potential
  • Multiple gaming licenses
  • Industry-wide name recognition in live-action Keno
  • Long standing vendor relationships with major casino groups

"We are extremely optimistic to join forces with TFN bringing live Keno to mobile gaming within the limits allowed by each jurisdiction," said XpertX founder and President Eric Thomassian. "The game of Keno, by its nature, lends itself quite well to a mobile platform. This venture offers enormous potential not only for TFN and XpertX, but also for Gaming operators in terms of increased opportunities for incremental revenue through wide exposure of Keno to a new, younger audience that is solidly entrenched in mobile technology."

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
