The company is trying to hijack WPT's planned sale to Peerless Media, a subsidiary of online gambling firm PartyGaming, and is citing its mobile clout as one reason for WPT to abandon that deal.

"Mandalay Media can leverage its mobile platform and operator relationships throughout the world to provide a full mobile social media and sports / poker playing experience," says its letter to the WPT board.

It also suggests that Twistbox's Play for Prizes platform would be a good fit for the World Poker Tour brand. The news comes two days after Mandalay appointed former Glu Mobile executive Ray Schaaf as its new president.
