Muckleshoot Tribe Enters into Deal for Stake in Bookie Mania

Muckleshoot Indian Tribe of Washington State is proud to announce its agreement with Bookie Mania Ltd, owner of BOOKIE MANIA™, to enter into an equity partnership with the company.

BOOKIE MANIA™ is an original and ground-breaking non-gambling freemium social betting game that is scheduled to launch globally on Facebook in the Fall of 2012, followed by a roll out on other platforms and in multiple languages.

The game uses virtual currency to bring together the social gaming phenomenon with the power of a betting game. BOOKIE MANIA™ is a non-gambling social betting game, and is not constrained by the rules and regulations that govern the betting market that falls within gambling. BOOKIE MANIA™ takes the gambling out of betting.

BOOKIE MANIA™ was created by Rohin Malhotra, who is Founder of Bookie Mania and Managing Director of Boofel Enterprises, an international gaming consultancy. Following earlier appointments with international media companies, he was previously CEO of WPT Enterprises, where he helped lead the company’s international expansion and gaming operations that included land-based events and successful launches of smart-phone, subscription and Facebook social games. More recently, he was a Director with Chiligaming, helping to expand and re-purpose it into a online gambling and social gaming business-to-business company culminating its sale to Bally Technologies.
