Jonny's next big venture was in the development of futuristic online gaming solutions. The company saw investment from major players including Michael Spencer and strategic partners, such as Orange, Virgin, The Mirror Group and Conde Nast, among others. The company soared to a value of over $40m in just 3 years.
