Online Slots More Accessible With HTML5 and Odobo

Published Thursday, December 06, 2012 -

HTML5 is a term that is typically used to describe a collection of technologies that allows developers to create powerful websites and applications. Content built using HTML5 can reach a much broader audience because HTML5 is supported by modern browsers on desktops, tablets, and smart phones without requiring any plug-ins. At its core, HTML5 features three primary technologies: HTML, which dictates structure, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), which handles presentation, and JavaScript, which enables logic and interactivity. Popular modern browsers that support HTML5 include the latest versions of Internet Explorer (Windows mobile and desktop), Firefox, Chrome, Safari (iOS and desktop), the Android Browser, and the Blackberry Browser.

The new platform has many developers working on producing titles for the online gambling industry. Rabcat, one of Europe’s most experienced production houses has announced a partnership with Odobo, the new HTML5 game development platform for the online regulated gambling industry. Rabcat is a highly-accredited development studio that specializes in high-end art and animation production for the international videogame industry and the manufacture of premium applications related to online gambling businesses.

Head of production at Rabcat, Florian Schmid commented on the partnership, “Joining the Odobo Game Developer Program and being able to leverage its Game Development Kit has allowed us to create dynamic HTML5 games for a great experience on any device.” The first production on the Odobo platform will be the award winning ‘The Legend of Olympus’ a very popular slot. CEO of Odobo, Ashley Lang, stated, “The team at Rabcat was quick to recognize the migration of players from desktops to mobile devices for their entertainment and that HTML5 was key to reaching the widest segment of the gaming market. It has been a pleasure to work with Rabcat to bring The Legend of Olympus to market in HTML5 on Odobo.” Lang concluded, “Since launching Odobo last week, the response and interest from developers and casino operators has exceeded our expectations. Expect additional partnership announcements in the coming weeks.”
