Big Fish Casino UK is a free-to-play game wherein the user can choose whether to play just for fun or play with real money as wager in the slot machine game, which is expected to get a lot of attention mainly because of the company’s 14 million visitors every month.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Big Fish Paul Thelen said: “F2P games are increasingly popular with gamers who have been introduced to digital games over the past few years via the rapid growth of social and mobile platforms. It is a natural extension to both our PC/Mac app store and to our mobile publishing business.”
The real-money gambling game from Big Fish utilizes the Betable technology, which has been developing real-money wager for some sort of mobile games for the past few years. Aside from the Big Fish Casino, the company announced that they will release more Betable-powered games in the future.
Big Fish Casino general manager Carey DiJulio: “Real-money betting is just one more way we are enhancing the Big Fish Casino gameplay experience. With the launch of Big Fish Casino U.K., real‐money players in the United Kingdom can join our other Big Fish Casino players in the social aspects and thrill of casino gaming from their iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch — anywhere they happen to be.”
Meanwhile, aside from Big Fish Games, Betable also announced they have inked partnership deals with Slingo, Digital Chocolate, and Murka Games, who are also planning to release their own real-money gambling games in the near future.
Betable Founder and CEO Christopher Griffin said that the recent deals they signed with the four gaming companies is a clear testament of the rapid growth real-money gambling games and he is expecting that it will shoot further in the next few years.
“The real-money gaming space is moving faster than anyone could have predicted and it’s exciting to have industry leaders implementing real-money into their games through Betable,” Griffin said.
