Alibaba launches Dots free on Taobao

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. will launch mobile game Dots on its online platform Taobao free of charge under an exclusive deal with its developer, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported Friday.

It is the first such deal between the Chinese e-commerce giant and Dots developer Betaworks.

Dots has been available for free download by iPhone and iPad users via Apple Store and by Android users through Google Play.

Alibaba is expanding its mobile gaming business. In January, it set up a digital entertainment division to attract more game developers to its platform, offering a 70 percent commission for jointly operated games.
