7 June 2013
SEATTLE, Washington -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Big Fish Games, Inc., the world's largest producer of casual games, launched today the first synchronous multiplayer mobile roulette game into its mobile social casino, "Big Fish Casino UK." This version of roulette features real-money betting powered by Betable Limited and is available now at the Big Fish website.
"Big Fish Casino UK's" roulette is European style, the most prevalent variation of roulette in Europe where roulette is one of the most popular table games. Most casinos in the United Kingdom, France, Netherlands, Italy and Germany receive nearly half of their gross gaming revenues from roulette. The synchronous multiplayer gameplay of "Big Fish Casino UK" roulette gives players the real-time feel of standing around a roulette table with friends. It is the first mobile game to feature multiplayer play of up to 6 players. All players can see the real-time betting of all other players at the table and the spin of the wheel.
"The fun of roulette is playing with other people. This was not just a feature -- it was the main part of play for us, as we understand that winning and losing while others are watching heightens the play," said Carey DiJulio, Vice President and General Manager of Big Fish Casino. "Adding roulette to 'Big Fish Casino UK' is one more way Big Fish is bringing the true feel and excitement of casino entertainment to our mobile players any time and anywhere."
"Betable is the only platform capable of enabling developers to offer the social experience of a casino on mobile devices and we are ecstatic that Big Fish is rolling out another game with multiplayer capabilities," said Christopher Griffin, CEO & Founder of Betable. "By bringing social elements to casino games Big Fish has become a leader in the real-money play opportunity on mobile. Their strategy is clearly paying off."
"Big Fish Casino" was the #1 top-grossing casino on iOS app worldwide in March and April of 2013, according to App Annie. It leads Big Fish's ever expanding free-to-play mobile game business that includes other innovative free-to-play games, such as "Match-Up!", the first 16-player synchronous multiplayer bracket tournament game, and "Found," a popular hidden object adventure.
