Decentralized cloud enables fast, hyper-local gaming across all computing devices

Today, mimik technology inc. announced that 3BLACKDOT (3BD), the leading gaming culture company, is now using the mimik edge cloud platform technology and edgeSDK to create new gaming experiences and utility applications across all devices. mimik’s decentralized cloud platform reduces latency, bandwidth usage and the cost of central cloud hosting while improving data privacy and enabling faster application development.

3BD also plans to distribute the mimik edgeSDK to game developers to give them the ability to communicate directly in realtime across devices cost-effectively and without the need for internet access. This initiative promises to create a new breed of games by enabling “edge” devices such as game consoles, PCs, laptops, and mobile phones with server capability.

“Improved means of user acquisition, stellar entertainment experiences, and affordable, globally scalable infrastructure are three of the top attributes developers are asking for in their video games. Using the mimik platform, we strive to deliver on all three of these by creating unique, unparalleled gaming experiences for our community,” said Angelo Pullen, co-founder and CEO, 3BD. “We’re using the mimik platform to enhance our players’ experiences. mimik’s platform enables direct, hyper-local communication between gaming devices, while also being able to accommodate peer-to-peer interactions around the world. This will reduce hosting, development and maintenance costs, improve latency, reduce bandwidth usage, and will open opportunities to create experiences not feasible using traditional centralized cloud approaches.”

The mimik edgeSDK enables serverless microservice development – a standard cloud-based software development model – on edge devices running iOS, Android, Raspbian, macOS, Windows or Linux. With mimik, microservices can communicate on the same device and/or across devices in a peer-to-peer fashion whether the gamers are playing on the same LAN or on networks across the globe. Similarly, gaming influencers can utilize their own devices and the devices of their fans to create new experiences within their own private cloud.

“We are thrilled to partner with 3BD to help bring gaming developers a faster, less costly, and more engaging user experience. Our decentralized edge cloud platform offers many benefits to the gaming community, and we’re excited to partner with 3BD to make it happen,” said Fay Arjomandi, co-founder and Chief Product Officer, mimic.

Betway has agreed a three-year-deal to become the official betting partner of the Mzansi Super League T20 – further adding to its cricket sponsorship portfolio.

The tournament, which takes place in Johannesburg, Tshwane, Durban, Nelson Mandela Bay, Cape Town and Paarl, is broadcast live in the UK and the first fixtures have already provided some great action.

Former South African international AB de Villiers impressed the locals as he hit fifty in vain as Tshwane Spartans were beaten by Cape Town Blitz, while Nelson Mandela Bay Giants beat the Jozi Stars.

Betway’s latest seven-figure-deal comes just months after it was confirmed as the official betting partner of both the men’s and women’s Cricket West Indies (CWI) sides.

Betway’s Anthony Werkman, said: “We are really pleased to be on board at the start of this new look T20 tournament.

“Being involved as a global partner shows the ambition Betway has to become a recognised worldwide supporter of elite professional sport, and the names appearing in this tournament certainly fit that bill.

“I am sure that the crowds will enjoy the games and we look forward to delivering an exciting experience for our customers too over the next three years.”

Cricket South Africa CEO, Thabang Moroe, added: “We are thrilled to have sports betting brand, Betway, on board to join our roster of sponsors, all whom have committed to helping us take Mzansi T20 to the world through the game of cricket.”

Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Project has received what it is describing as a ‘substantial order’ from Praesepe, part of the Gauselmann group of companies, for its specialist poker themed games comprising Red Hot Poker, Jacks or Better and the Cat C lite, Hi Lo Poker.

Confirming the order, Praesepe’s Head of Gaming Machines, Nigel Davis, said:We have a long and successful history of working with Project, one of the industry’s leading independent machine innovators. Project was the first to fully understand poker and over the last decade has mastered the art of translating the dynamics of the game into an array of stylish B4, Cat C and Cat C lite machines. We’ve found that poker attracts a different segment of the player base into our venues. They don’t perceive themselves as being slots players but poker players, which means that as an operator we are not simply cannibalising spend from one machine to another. Attracting new income is the lifeblood of any business and poker themed games bring new customers into our venues. I am confident the Project pokers that we have ordered will further enhance the fantastic Cashino customer experience.

Project Managing Director, Tony Boulton stated:We are delighted at the faith shown by Praesepe in our products. We have spent a lot of time understanding the psyche of the poker player and working hard to deliver new and enhanced experiences for poker aficionados. Poker doesn’t go out of fashion, it works across machine categories and it can be deployed either as a stand alone machine or, as we’ve demonstrated in 5 Star Games, as part of a mixed game style compendium. Key to its success and its longevity is the fact that it generates differentiated income courtesy of its’ distinct player base.
