06/08/2020

New York, NYJune 8, 2020 – Tapinator, Inc. (OTC: TAPM) (“Tapinator,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”), a developer and publisher of category leading apps for mobile platforms, with a focus on social casino games, today announced the April 29th, 2020 global release of SPEED: Heads-Up Solitaire (“SPEED”) exclusively on Apple’s iOS platform.   In order to bring this unique, best-in-class social, synchronous card game to mobile players worldwide, Tapinator joined forces with the game’s developer, Robot Cake Games of Hannover, Germany.

Following its initial global launch on iOS, SPEED was featured by Apple as a “New Game We Love” in 150 countries, including the United States. To-date, SPEED has achieved the following iOS metrics.

  • More than 40,000 player downloads
  • Excellent rating of 4.5 (out of 5.0) stars, based on over 800 player reviews
  • Reached #30 Top Card Games in the United States

Tapinator’s CEO, Ilya Nikolayev, commented on the recent release, “We believe that we have successfully recreated the competitive, dynamic nature of speed for mobile devices. We believe that the gameplay of SPEED is well-suited to become a top grossing mobile game due to the following characteristics:

  • Synchronous, heads up competition
  • Addictive, bite-sized gameplay sessions
  • Extensive virtual currency betting system
  • Future esports opportunities

Given the warm reception we have received for SPEED from both App Store editors and the game’s initial player base, we plan to invest significantly in coming quarters to further enrich the game with additional features and functionality.  We are also planning to release versions of the game for both Google Play and Amazon Kindle in Q3 of this year.  We hope to be in a position to begin significantly scaling the game’s user base through paid user acquisition by Q4 of this year.”

Tapinator is also pleased to announce that it has commenced development on a new social casino title slated for soft launch later this year.  The Company will provide further detail on this initiative as it gets closer to the release date.

The quoting and trading of the Company's common stock on the OTC Marketplace is often thin and characterized by wide fluctuations in trading prices, due to many factors that may have little to do with the Company's operations or business prospects. As a result, there may be volatility in the market price of the shares of the Company's common stock for reasons unrelated to operating performance.

Accordingly, stockholders may have difficulty reselling any of their shares.
