Whether you’re a Sudoku freak or a Moto GP fan, 123play.com has the mobile game for you.
So how does it actually work? When you launch a 123play.com game on your mobile, you’ll see two short adverts before the game. If you want to visit the advertiser’s website on your phone, simply click; if you don’t, the game will start. Simple as that. When you’re finished playing, you’ll see another two ads.
If this all sounds like a good deal, head for 123play.com and follow these simple steps and you’ll be playing in just a few minutes:
1. Go to 123play.com and choose the game you want to download
3. Enter your mobile number when prompted to send a download link to your phone
4. On your mobile, click on the link to download the game. Operator charges may apply for the download, but the game is free.
