Betsoft Gaming has announced the advent of their proprietary Shift™ platform, which is designed to make the most of HTML5 technology. Shift™ is the new framework upon which all Betsoft games will be built.
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]his next-generation platform is built entirely with HTML5, a global standard that every computer and device can support for the foreseeable future.
Adobe is discontinuing support for their Flash player, and Shift™ was developed to compensate for that. The Shift™ platform runs natively on any supporting web browser – such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, or Mozilla Firefox, among others – without the need for any third party plugins.
According to the company, the Shift™ platform uses an all-new animation engine that runs much more efficiently than Flash, meaning that Betsoft’s games can be experienced the way they were meant to be.
“Our new Shift™ platform represents the next step in iGaming evolution, and is a tremendous milestone for the both the Company and the industry,” stated Mark McKeown, Betsoft’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “While HTML5 has been a standard for some time, it is only just now that the technology and hardware have matured enough to allow for the standards of quality and visual excellence for which Betsoft games are known. We are extremely proud to introduce Shift™ as a comprehensive solution for future game development.”
