Today Atari has made thing even more interesting as they announced a partnership with Pariplay to enter the real money gambling arena. Anyone following the social casino market would not be surprised by the almost automatic transformation to real money gaming. In terms of the partnership Pariplay will launch Atari’s classic brands on multiple platforms including online, social and mobile. Players will have access to a real money website that includes Atari’s classics like Pong, Centipede and Asteroids.
The launch of the website is scheduled for the fourth quarter, Pariplay will also offer Atari’s games for their network operators to run. Pariplay is well known for providing gaming platforms for gaming platform and recently partnered up with U.S. based Majesco Entertainment.
