When you compare our modern world to the stone ages and the pre-industrial revolution era, you will easily see that technology has made all the difference. Just close the end of the last millennium, mobile phones were invented merely to counter the geographical limitation in communication. Close to two decades now, and we already have a revolution in mobile technology with the introduction of smartphones. Instead of a few business folks, almost everyone is using a smartphone. In fact, record has it that over six billion people in the world now own a smartphone.

Even more interesting is the increase in the number of internet users across the world as a result of the explosion in smartphone technology. So nowadays, more people have access to the internet than they have access to a toilet. While this does not generally convey a positive message, it does show the extent of the growth of mobile technology. And also support social initiatives to exploit technology as a means for enriching lives. Mobile gaming is one of such initiatives as seen in the efforts of Noosphere Ventures recent campaigns and managing partner Max Polyakov.

Mobile gaming allows you to do what you like playfully and competitively. It’s all in a virtual environment, so you have nothing to worry about. And social gamification is even more fun. Crowdrise (for fundraising) and SuperBetter (for mental health) are two good examples.

There are also many games out there that are also helping to solve real world problems. A good example is Sweet Seeds campaign which was immediately launched to raise funds for many, who were displaced in Haiti after the earthquake in January, 2010. The campaign was launched by Zynga in their FarmVille app.

From here, you can easily see how gamification is providing solutions to some of the problems faced by humanity. And because people like to play games, organizations like Noosphere Ventures and National Geographic are using it to bring our focus to some trending environment issues. The slot game is one of the best collaborations between Noosphere Ventures, Murka and the National Geographic.

Recently, Murka launched a free game called Nat Geo WILD Slots™ for all slot machine and casino enthusiasts. In addition to slots, players also get to view amazing photographs from National Geographic while they play. The initiative is one of those supported by Noosphere Ventures through Managing Partner, Max Polyakov.

According to the Managing Partner of Noosphere Ventures, the collaboration between both companies serves to provide fun for all slot gamers in interesting ways. While getting entertained from doing what they love, they also get to learn many things about wildlife and their environment. Max Polyakov also stressed on the possibility of using the app as a fundraising platform in the future.

Thanks to National Geographic, gamers will get to see stunning images of architecture, people and landscape which they wouldn’t normally see elsewhere.

The Senior VP, Licensing, for Nat Geo Partners made it clear that their partnership with Murka will expand their virtual storytelling in the social gaming genre.

Max Polyakov also hopes that the partnership between both organizations will make it possible to raise funds to support the environmental protection initiatives.

    The most interesting aspect that I have found in this article is the possibility of using the app in the near future as a fundraising platform, as Max Polyakov has stated. This is great and I can’t wait to see it happen!

    I cannot say much about the game in cause, because I haven’t played it yet, but I totally agree and support Max Polyakov in his initiative of partnering up with National Geographic. In this way, people will play and learn.

    I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart Max Polyakov for finding a way to teach people in such a pleasant way. There is no other better method on Earth to learn than by the method of being taught through gaming and playing. Hope all will go well in the future.

    I have always been the fan of slot games and I have always been a fan of National Geographic and its TV-shows. By the partnership Max Polyakov has created, I can now enjoy two of my favorite hobbies at the same time.

    I agree 100% with everything that this article has brought up to the general public. The problems which the modern world and all humanity is faced should be brought to public attention. I see that this is now possible through the partnership Max Polyakov has set up with National Geographic.
