In the light of its recent accomplishments on the international online gaming market, ComTrade is witnessing the upswing in the public perception it enjoys globally. After launching its new Blackjack app for Facebook, ComTrade is getting excellent feedback from all sides – players who tried it responded very enthusiastically while the app was also noticed by industry observers and referenced in online and print publications.
Online gaming in general and social gaming in particular are fast-growing business fields, with plenty of opportunities for medium-sized companies such as ComTrade to make a serious push and rake in nice profits. For example, leading providers of gaming solutions for Facebook, such as Zynga (FarmVille, CityVille) and PopCap (subsidiary of Electronic Arts) are among the most fastest growing software companies in the world, with revenue in hundreds of millions. The latest products that ComTrade launched place the company in the upper tier of social gaming providers and allow it to compete in this lucrative market segment in the future.
ComTrade’s Blackjack application for Facebook allows users to play for free, although it has built in features for real money games as well. With Facebook user community approaching 1 billion unique accounts, there is little doubt that potential opportunities in this field are enormous. For now, simply being mentioned in the same breath as Zinga or PopCap means a lot for ComTrade’s international standing and its market position. That’s the reason why ComTrade views gaming solutions (and especially social gaming applications) as a crucial part of its business plans going forward.
