Zynga bets big on Sports Casino by publishing partner RocketPlay
Do you get the picture now? Zynga is not f**king around with this whole gambling business. The developer slash publisher has just announced a partnership with developer RocketPlay (formerly Gamingo) to publish Sports Casino. The social game maker's live sports-betting game is now live on Facebook, complete with Zynga promotion bar, and Zynga.com.
"Sports Casino delivers an authentic virtual sports-betting experience to social gaming and sports fans," RocketPlay CEO Mani Honigstein said in a release. "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."
According to a release, Sports Casino offers "an authentic Las Vegas-style sportsbook experience" wherein players can bet on live sporting events like baseball and football as well as play video poker, slots, and blackjack. With that RocketPlay dubs Sports Casino the "perfect second-screen complement to watching live sports on television." And with the promotion power of Zynga behind it, this casino game could very well be on its way to just that.
