Texas Hold’em King LIVE! Over 600,000 Unique Accounts
Ottawa-based smartphone developer and publisher Magmic Inc. is pleased to announce that over 600,000 players have created accounts for their newest entry into their well-established poker franchise. That translates into over 7,000,000 “All-Ins” and over 50,000,000 hands dealt over the last 6 months.
Magmic Inc. has successfully leveraged in-app payments on the BlackBerry platform with THK Live, the newest version of Magmic’s flagship poker franchise, Texas Hold’em King. This online-only version of freemium poker features enhanced graphics, an easy to use interface, deeply integrated social features and a virtual currency monetization plan. The current virtual store is operated by Bplay (Bplay.com), and Magmic has plans to integrate with RIM’s AppWorld Payment Portal in the near future.
“We’re incredibly pleased with the reception we’ve gotten from our existing and new players” says Nick Tremmaglia, THK Live’s Product Manager. “We’re looking forward to bringing our successful franchise to additional platforms later this summer.”
The THK franchise has been incredibly popular, with over 50 million installs across 5 major platforms and THK Live is a top performer on BlackBerry AppWorld and continues to rise up the charts. “THK Live realizes the vision we’ve always had for the Texas Hold’em King brand: fun, connected, and designed to grow with the industry,” says Magmic CEO John Criswick. “As payment options and usage patterns change, THK Live will continue to be the best poker experience on mobile.”
