New Sports Casino finds home on Facebook, Zynga.com
“Sports Casino delivers an authentic virtual sportsâ€?betting experience to social gaming and sports fans,” said Mani Honigstein, CEO of RocketPlay. “We’re thrilled to launch with Zynga’s support, a company that has set the social gaming benchmark and will help us bring a great game to a wide range of players.”
Sports Casino players enjoy an authentic Las Vegasâ€?style sportsbook experience, placing virtual bets on global sports with realâ€?time odds while enjoying integrated casino games such as video poker, slots, and blackjack. Players can enjoy inâ€?game, realâ€?time betting while competing with their friends-a perfect secondâ€?screen complement to watching live sports on television. Sports Casino arrives just in time for actionâ€?packed betting on professional and college football, baseball, and international soccer.
The game appeals to the highly soughtâ€?after male gamer demographic on Facebook, particularly as social betting games continue to grow in popularity. Following Sports Casino's release, RocketPlay will continue to update the game with new features and sports, including hockey, basketball, and more.
Though the game currently uses only virtual currency, RocketPlay has developed Sports Casino to take advantage of the rising importance of realâ€?money gambling in the social space as opportunities arise and legal restrictions are eased.
