MANSION used CyberArts Foundation to build MANSIONPOKER with the express intent of becoming one of the largest poker operators in the world. They chose CyberArts for the scalability of Foundation, the rock-solid nature of the architecture, and the speed at which we could bring Poker to market for them. Foundation’s unique branding capabilities offered Mansion the way to realize their innovative vision for “taking Internet poker to the next level.”
“We chose CyberArts Foundation platform following an exhaustive review of poker software providers,” commented Nick Gabriel. “CyberArts stood out, ahead of all others, in terms of both its technical architecture and the range of game features. The pace and dedication of CyberArts’ collaboration exceeded our expectations and has delivered to us a strong and already well tested platform that will bring the Mansion Poker experience to hundreds of thousands of players worldwide.”
For CyberArts, this was a chance for them to do what they do best-large scale custom development and implementation. “We were excited at the chance to work with MANSION,” noted CyberArts CEO Ken Arnold, “they were determined to lead the market with a unique game play interface and exciting new features designed to maximize enjoyment for the online poker player. It was a challenge we were delighted to rise to.”
MANSION also announced today the sponsorship of poker’s newest rising star, professional tournament player Erica Schoenberg. MANSIONPOKER.COM confirms the three-year partnership with Schoenberg following her standout performance at the 4th Annual Five Star World Poker Classic WPT event in Las Vegas. Schoenberg’s role as a roving poker ambassador for MANSIONPOKER.COM will also see her sport the company logo at premium land-based tournaments, and be promoted as a spokes-model and the face of the brand. The pairing proves well-timed for the gaming entertainment giant on the eve of the MANSIONPOKER.COM launch, and coincides with a multi-million-dollar marketing rollout set to raise the online poker portal’s global profile.
