Million-2-1 was founded in 2003, and immediately made an impact on the market with the introduction of the first reverse auction– now an international phenomenon. The company followed this success by creating some of the most innovative and interactive competitions, lotteries and SMS games for the mobile phone market. Million-2-1 offers partners the ability to access millions of mobile phone users and leverage additional revenues from interactive gaming solutions.
In 2008, IGT-UK Group acquired Million-2-1, cementing the strategic relationship developed between the two companies and marking IGT’s entry into the mobile gaming market. This gave the company access to some of the best known game titles in the industry to be offered through its mobile platform.
