Revolutionary online poker concept

Gaming technology company Miles Ahead presents a new online poker concept that includes a groundbreaking in-browser client which affiliates and players can share and embed into external websites, blogs, forums and social mediums and a revolutionary commission plan that will strengthen affiliates market position.

Affiliates, players and spectators can embed tables in their own website, blog or forum by simply copy and pasting HTML code, just like sharing a YouTube video clip. This way the clients are being spread throughout the internet, reaching millions of new players. The Flash-based client, accessible in any compatible web-browser, is intuitive, responsive, fast and smooth.

“We recognize the importance of the affiliate in a continually changing online poker market. This revolutionary concept gives affiliates more control and may turn the entire industry upside down,”
says Ola Akselberg, CEO of Miles Ahead. “The response from our test users has been very positive!”

In addition to the revolutionary idea of ‘embedded distribution’, the poker client also incorporates key features from online social media, such as achievements and real-time sharing of the gaming experience.

“Poker, like all gaming online, is really changing! It’s not all about money anymore. It’s entertainment. It’s socializing, respect and fame. That’s why we’ll add a wide selection of achievements for players to pimp their community profile,” says Jan Ridenfeldt, COO of Miles Ahead, and ends “15 seconds of fame!”

Through the new commission plan, affiliates get two sources of revenue. In addition to the established referral fees, affiliates can create, embed and host private or public tables in their own websites, forums, blogs and social mediums. On these tables, they will receive a share from all rake generated, a hosting fee. The concept is currently being tested by selected operators, affiliates and players. The application will be available to other partners in February.

New and improved cross-platform clients for wireless touch-screen devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone, are in development. The first versions will be available Q2 2011.
