T-Mobile Gamer Wins GBP 25k On Poker Via Cellectivity Mobile Gambling Channel
T-Mobile today announced the first winner to collect GBP 25,000 on the mobile Video Poker application facilitated by UK mobile gaming provider Cellectivity. The big win comes straight off the back of another lucky GBP 20,000 win on mobile roulette also facilitated by Cellectivity. The flurry of big wins confirms mobile arrival on the gambling scene alongside more established internet devices.
Video Poker and Roulette are both featured on "Cash Casino" T-Mobile's highly successful gambling portal.

The Portal offers users both 'real' and 'play' money options, allowing users to practise their skills, pit their wits or just play for fun.
Quick, easy and free to download the service offers T-Mobile customers access to all the fun of online gaming direct to their mobile handset anytime, anywhere, be it on the daily commute, in the pub or in the comfort of their own home.
