The mobile site launches with cash games in Solitaire Rush, which has historically ranked as a top-performing title on World Winner.com.
GSN Games, partnered by Open Web technology company Bocoup of Boston, built the mobile Open Web site using HTML5, offering cash tournaments to iOS and Android users via a mobile Web browser.

Players can enter cash tournaments or hone their skills in free, practice tournaments by logging on to World Winner.com from the Safari or Chrome browsers on their mobile device.
The GSN Cash Games mobile site allows players to choose a tournament type based on the number of players, entry fee or cash prize amount.
