DOCOMO Digital, world’s preeminent mobile commerce enabler, announced today that it has now launched its unique gaming platform: www.zaingames-jo.com with Zain Jordan, the country’s leading operator. This platform brings Zain’s customers access to hundreds of top-quality games compatible with iOS/Android/WP operating systems. Zain Games is a unique all-you-can-play bundle of native and HTML5 games, streamed over the web directly to consumers’ mobile or tablet devices. Zain Jordan enjoys a leading position in the market with nearly 6M subscribers.

This launch in Jordan follows the company-wide agreement reached at the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona in early 2018, between DOCOMO Digital and Zain Group, one of the largest mobile operators in the Middle East and Africa region. The agreement will allow Zain’s 46.9 million users, access to content from DOCOMO Digital’s mobile entertainment partners and the ability to pay for this content in a secure and simple way as part of their monthly phone bills, leveraging DOCOMO Digital’s direct carrier billing technology. Zain operates in 8 countries in the region and has already launched its gaming platform successfully in KSA and in Kuwait. Similar gaming services will be launched in Bahrain and Lebanon over the next few months.

“Launching our games platform in Jordan marks yet another important milestone in our partnership with the Zain group. We are committed to expanding our footprint across the Middle East and we hope to bring our latest suite of content and billing services to Zain’s subscribers across the region. This an exciting region to be in with the consumption of games among the young on the upswing.”

All within a single app.
