VANCOUVER, British Columbia, October 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —
Arcturus Growthstar Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “Arcturus”) (CSE: AGS) (OTC Pink: AGSTF) is pleased to announce that it has established a new mobile gaming division (www.420AppGaming.com) with the intent to put out 420 themed games, which will generate revenue through In App Purchases (IAP) as well as through ad impressions. According to the Global Games Market Report, gamers worldwide will generate a total of $99.6 billion in revenues in 2016, up 8.5% compared to 2015. For the first time, mobile gaming will take a larger share than personal computers with $36.9 billion, up 21.3% globally.
“With our recent mobile app acquisition and our growing focus on Cannabis, we feel Arcturus is now uniquely positioned to capitalize on these two huge and converging trends by publishing a suite of 420 themed games and utility apps,” says Mr. William Gildea, Arcturus Growthstar Technologies Inc.’s CEO and Chairman.
Arcturus’ mobile app plan is to first launch a series of 420 themed casual games like Slots, Poker, Solitaire and Bingo, which all have a large and broad appeal, before year end 2016. According to ThinkGaming, five of the top 20 grossing revenue games are slots games while the rest are tried and true games that have proven to be winners on mobile devices and consistently in the top charts.
“We are excited to be working with the Arcturus team and, in addition to the 420 gaming apps we are currently developing, in Q1 2017 we are also planning to release utility apps to compete with the biggest apps in the Cannabis space, including Weedmaps and Massroots,” says Mikael Hovhannisyan, the app development team manager.
