SMS Subscription for HTML5 Games Portal

Combining games portal with a payment system of SMS subscription was a concept tried and tested by MTN Nigeria in an attempt to make quality mobile games more accessible to players. For a small weekly or monthly subscription fee, players can meet their gaming needs by having access to a gaming portal.

MTN Nigeria is a telecommunications company committed to serving more than 52 million subscribers in Nigeria. It has established itself as a leading telco since 2001 and has continued to provide quality service to subscribers using the latest technology.

Easy to Use Interface for the Games Portal

We have worked with MTN Nigeria on their games portal to make sure that customers get the best gaming experience possible. This project was implemented using the telco’s own billing system to allow players to have access to games with just a single click or SMS.

Here’s a quick look at the Games Portal for MTN Nigeria.

Once they’ve successfully subscribed to the service, they can check which games are available.

Accessible Games Portal with Premium SMS Game Subscription System

Instant gaming is the main benefit provided by an SMS subscription system. It lessens the wait time versus having a game on the App Store/Google Play. The payment method is one text away which means that players can easily spend for a subscription to get the latest games, straight from their mobile browser.

Using the games portal, players just need to access the game through the app. Once a new game is available, players will immediately be notified through the dashboard of the app.

In detail, the use of games portal provided MTN Nigeria the following benefits:


  • 200+ games found in one portal
  • Games are classified per genre
  • Regularly updated choice of premium games


  • Subscription uses a small amount of mobile load
  • One subscription to access a variety of games


  • Starting and ending a subscription uses SMS
  • Players only need a subscription plan to avail new games
  • Weekly and monthly payment options available


  • Guaranteed revenue due to subscriptions
  • Easy to add new games


  • Pay-per-download option is possible
  • Able to reach many subscribed players
  • Integrate registrations and leaderboards for follow-up marketing
  • Allow partnerships with brands

Engage with players using HTML5 Games

SMS Subscription for HTML5 Games Portal

Assisting MTN Nigeria in creating its own games portal integrated to the telco’s billing system was a challenging but exciting task. The project highlighted the integration of mobile load as payment for subscription. HTML5 games for MTN Nigeria’s games portal resulted in minimal compatibility issues with devices. This makes playing games as easy as subscribing to MTN Nigeria’s services.

HTML5 games are today’s best solution to promote your brand and provide gaming to your customers. Interactive projects are best made using highly-compatible HTML5 technology.
