Digital interactive entertainment provider, Electronic Arts Inc. ( EA), and online gaming specialist, Pogo, are offering some of their most popular games available for free on Gogo’s new in-air multimedia platform.
Claimed to be the first ever game content provider on Gogo’s multimedia platform, the service is live on all Gogo equipped Alaska Airlines and select Delta Air Lines flights. Passengers can access the popular Pogo games: First Class Solitaire, MONOPOLY and Mahjong Safari for free, but should they wish to play more games, they can visit the Pogo website through Gogo’s in-air Internet service and log-in using their Pogo account. Passengers can purchase a segment pass to access the Internet through Gogo for anywhere between $1.95 and $14.95 depending on the length of the flight.
“Sometimes you just need five minutes of fun to improve your mood on a long flight,” commented Beatrice Spaine, Vice President, Publishing Pogo at Electronic Arts. “Our games are easy enough to pick up and play and entertaining enough to keep you seated for an entire cross-country flight.”
“We’re helping our airline partners enable a richer, more compelling in-flight experience,” stated Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief marketing officer. “By working with Pogo.com, we are excited to offer another exciting entertainment option at 30,000 feet.”
