"Mini Bet On Soldier is a technically brilliant and dangerously addictive little game, and we couldn't be happier with the way that it's taken off on a global scale. What started as an obsession in the office has spread like wildfire, so we're delighted to be able to offer a new and exclusive version to UK mobile phone users." Leo Zullo, Marketing Director, Digital Jesters commented.
Mobile Bet On Soldier is a java based mini game available for download by UK customers on a wide selection of handsets, for the nominal, one-off fee of just Â£1.50. Using the keypad, players direct the crosshairs and try to take out as many enemies as possible as they appear on the screen, using a pistol for money-making headshots or grenades for multiple kills. Every kill earns the player a set amount of money, and final scores can be sent to a global ranking leader board. Digital Jesters will be awarding a prize for the best score, to be announced shortly - so get playing and put yourself at the top of rankings now!
In addition to the exciting new java game, a selection of mobile phone ringtones, wallpapers and screensavers are also available, all exclusively themed around Bet On Soldier: Blood Sport; Digital Jesters' forthcoming FPS with a gambling twist, available on PC from September 9th, 2005.

About Digital Jesters
Founded in 2003, Digital Jesters is a British-based publisher of computer and video games. Set up by the duo responsible for launching and establishing the Sudden Strike and Cossacks series of games in the UK, the firm's remit is simple: to source and publish the best games available. The company's commitment to originality resulting in it snapping up the original TrackMania game from French developer Nadeo and DJ's ethos of community development strategy resulted in the game becoming one of the sleeper hits of the year. A tie-in with record-breaking yachtswoman Ellen Macarthur for the firm's second release Virtual Skipper 3 ensured the game received widespread attention among the elusive non-gamer, and firmly placed the publisher on the map. The firm has enjoyed three top 10 PC hits, one of which is from the developers Cyanide, creators of Pro Rugby Manager and now DJ is expanding its operation to cover additional territories. It has also published its own comic book to widespread critical acclaim. For additional information on Digital Jesters, please visit www.digitaljesters.com or www.djmediacentre.com
