Microgames Networks, has launched Nairagames.com, Nigeria’s first online casino which features instant wins on the “wheel of wealth” games.

Barry Nyong, managing director and chief executive, Microgames Networks said that “the new platform is designed to make online gaming as easy as possible, with no software to install, requiring only flash player and java enabled computer browser, which is today’s global de facto standard for real time gaming”.

The company also announced the release of its simplified version of the popular American roulette game to Nigeria’s online gaming market, after having received the go ahead from the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC).

“The Nairagames.com portal which is designed to provide both online arcade and casino gaming services is Nigeria’s first and only online casino for now, and provides only roulette gaming.

“Nairagames.com video roulette is currently the simplest roulette casino game worldwide, as it eliminates the learning complexity associated with traditional roulette casino gaming, leaving gamers with a game that is simple to play, yet thrilling with super lucrative payouts.

“Rewards for Nairagames players begin once they register at the portal. New players are randomly pampered with stunning N500 to N20,000 bonus, and returning players between N2,500 to N15,000 just for logging in. Winners can redeem wins within 24 hours as it is transferred directly to bank accounts or via mobile payment. It can also take up to five days to redeem depending on amount won,” Nyong added.

“There’s no better place to get lucky than here.  Roulette is a fun wheel wealth game played in casinos, and requires that you place a bets and spin the wheel to see what you win.

Unlike most online casinos, our wheel of wealth game does not generate its numbers from our server, so we have no control over what numbers are generated.

“Our games are browser based and the numbers are randomly generated on players PCs or mobile phones, with each generated number independent of the previous. This is because our priorities are not only to entertain, but also to enrich our members, as well as foster a loyal and trustworthy online gaming environment. We understand how vital it is that our players are 100% confident in our casino game fairness,” Nyong added.

“We are also doing our best to ensure that Nairagames’ recharge vouchers are circulated widely to enable ease of top up by online gamers, and have taken gigantic leaps to facilitate this by enabling instant and secured customers payments via Visa card, MasterCard and Verve cards, over the internet, mobile and at ATM machines, courtesy of QuickTeller solutions from InterSwitch.

“Another micropayment strategy, is our proprietary solution in the member area that provides the technology for users interested in profiting from distribution and retail of Nairagames’ vouchers, to purchase online, instantly generate 50 to 5,000 vouchers,  format and set to a regular desktop printer in just five minutes, anywhere in Nigeria.

“This is guaranteed to generate steady revenue for voucher dealers as we are giving up to 60 per cent profit margins to smart businesses planning to key in for quick profits, and as part of our market penetration strategy,” he added.

TikTok Picks Oracle to Provide ‘Secure’ Cloud Tech

Published

Kindly share this post

Enterprise software giant Oracle announced that it has been chosen to become TikTok’s “secure” cloud technology provider.

According to Oracle, this technical decision by TikTok was heavily influenced by Zoom’s recent success in moving a large portion of its video-conferencing capacity to the Oracle Public Cloud.

Oracle’s announcement comes after TikTok parent ByteDance last week said it will not be selling the video-sharing app’s US operations to software giant Microsoft.

This after US president Donald Trump signed an executive order on 6 August, blocking all transactions with ByteDance in an effort to address “national emergency” issues.

On 14 August, the US president issued an order that gave ByteDance 90 days to divest the US operations of TikTok.

Since then, US companies such as Microsoft and Oracle have been lining up as potential buyers for the popular short video app.

As the trade war between the US and China rages on, the US government has accelerated its efforts to purge Chinese apps and technology companies that it deems untrustworthy.

Trump and his administration raised national security issues, alleging the Chinese-owned company will share sensitive user data with the Chinese government.

“TikTok picked Oracle’s new Generation 2 Cloud infrastructure because it’s much faster, more reliable, and more secure than the first generation technology currently offered by all the other major cloud providers,” says Oracle chief technology officer Larry Ellison.

“In the 2020 Industry CloudPath survey that IDC recently released where it surveyed 935 infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) customers on their satisfaction with the top IaaS vendors including Oracle, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, IBM and Google Cloud…Oracle IaaS received the highest satisfaction score.”

“As a part of this agreement, TikTok will run on the Oracle Cloud and Oracle will become a minority investor in TikTok Global,” says Oracle CEO Safra Catz.

“Oracle will quickly deploy, rapidly scale and operate TikTok systems in the Oracle Cloud. We are 100% confident in our ability to deliver a highly secure environment to TikTok and ensure data privacy to TikTok’s American users, and users throughout the world.

“This greatly improved security and guaranteed privacy will enable the continued rapid growth of the TikTok user community to benefit all stakeholders.”
