SEATTLE, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Fish, the world's largest producer of casual games, today announced a new explosive and fast-paced slot machine game, "Forbidden Island". This new slots game adds even more fun and synchronous multiplayer play to the #1 top-grossing social casino app, "Big Fish Casino".  "Forbidden Island" is an exotic volcano-themed slot machine that gives players the social feature they've always wanted – the ability to get bonus chips when another player has a big win.  Every time a player gets three or more scatter symbols to show up anywhere on the slot reels, chips are fed into the volcano, and the player is marked as a "chosen" one, meaning the player will get a share of the slot payout.  Once the volcano is full of chips, it erupts with free chips that rain down on all the "chosen ones".

"Big Fish Casino" combines classic casino favorites – slots, blackjack, Texas Hold 'em poker, video poker, roulette-- with non-traditional game mechanics, such as unique social slot games like "Forbidden Island" and "Slot Races", where individual slot players can trigger bonus rounds and race each other in high-speed tournaments.  The synchronous multiplayer casino platform allows for a real-time social setting, where players can chat, buy gifts for other players and more.

Key features of "Forbidden Island" include:

  • Animated volcano that comes alive and erupts with chips
  • Social Scatter- players win chips by getting scatters, while also increasing the jackpot
  • Shared victory – Everybody who adds to the jackpot wins when the volcano erupts with chips
