Las Vegas, Nev.-based slot game designers Bluhare Studios have partnered with Ruby Seven Studios, a San Francisco, Calif.-based social and mobile game developer. The partnership brings together a unique combination of a social casino game publisher with an award-winning casino game design team.

The two studios come together to vie for a slice of the lucrative $1.6 billion social casino gaming industry. Ruby Seven brings a sophisticated knowledge base of social and mobile game publishing, and Bluhare Studios contributes a design team responsible for some of the most successful slot games in casino history, including Reel’em In, Jackpot party, Monopoly, Wizard of Oz, and Aladdin and the Magic Quest. Together, these partners will create a social casino slots experience like no other for players on iPhone, iPad, Android and Facebook.

The first title from the newly established partnership will be TimeQuest Slots, available in May on iPhone, iPad and Android. TimeQuest Slots combines a social slots experience with a unique, time travel theme. Players will engage with an authentic casino slot game experience, exciting social gaming features, and top production values, all packaged into a captivating adventure through the history of casino gambling.

TimeQuest Slots will launch this May, with more games to come from the partnership between Ruby Seven Studios and Bluhare Studios.

“We have spent years honing our skills in the real money gaming space, and now by joining forces with Ruby Seven Studios we will be able to take our games to the exciting, emerging social casino market,” said Jim Jackson, CEO of Bluhare Studio’s parent company Gemini Digital Development

“This partnership is a win-win for our studios and our players,” added Ruby Seven Studios CEO Michael Carpenter. “The synergy of Ruby Seven’s extensive social gaming know-how with Bluhare’s real-world casino game design expertise enables us to create an all-new depth of gaming experience for our iPhone, iPad and Android players.”
