Multiplayer Online Games (MOG) in-game advertisements require dynamic delivery of large images for potentially hundreds of concurrent users. We present an approach for a scalable advertisement image delivery mechanism using the BitTorrent Peer-to-Peer (P2P) protocol. Simulations were conducted comparing a client-server model and our proposed model, where each MOG player acts as a P2P node in the overall advertisement delivery system. We observed that even with 15 nodes, the client-server model exhibits scalability issues whilst our proposal has linear scalability. Furthermore, we have also illustrated that MOG players leaving or node failures does not impact our proposed architecture's scalability.
