April 6, 2009 (Stockholm, Sweden) — Jadestone Networks (http://www.jadestone.se/), the Nordic-based owner and operator of multiplayer gaming networks DiceArena and GamArena, today announced that its DiceArena product has won Gambling Online Magazine's 2008 Top Innovation Award.
DiceArena, which today features the two multiplayer dice games Shoot the Moons and Dice Hold'em, is still a newcomer in a market of old-timers like poker, casino games and bingo. The first wave of Jadestone's network partners for DiceArena have just come onboard. The latest partner, bwin, joined the network only last week to complement NordicBet, Paf and Gala Coral.
"It's certainly challenging to break new ground," said Tobias Nissen, Business Development Director at Jadestone. "But at the end of the day, it's incredibly satisfying to bring new and exciting games to the market. And getting the kind of recognition we just got from Gambling Online Magazine is extra icing on the cake for everyone involved."
With bwin now live on DiceArena the growth of the network is ramping up quickly. This is also reflected in increasing tournament prize levels. The currently active Galactic promotion with a $10,000 guarantee is the biggest prize pot yet in the DiceArena network.
"We've just started the dice games journey," continued Tobias Nissen. "We already have a strong line-up of partners behind us, and more are on the way. Clearly, we're in for an interesting journey with many opportunities to continue innovating — both in the multiplayer games and in the supporting functionality."
