SEATTLE, Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Double Down Interactive, makers of the world's largest virtual online casino, announced today a distribution partnership with WildTangent. The new pact gives players of WildTangent's games service a chance to win millions of dollars in virtual currency at the DoubleDown Casino™.
DoubleDown Casino, developed by Double Down Interactive, is one of the fastest-growing applications on Facebook with nearly 3 million monthly players and over 750,000 playing each day. Double Down Interactive has reinvented the casino experience online by coupling wildly popular games including blackjack, slot machines, video poker and roulette with innovative social mechanics that mirror the vibe found in the top casino's on the Las Vegas strip.
"WildTangent has spent the better part of 10 years building out a massive casual game audience via their partnerships with leading PC manufacturers," said Greg Enell, CEO and co-founder of Double Down Interactive. "We are excited to make the DoubleDown Casino available to their millions of casual gamers and expect this partnership will go far towards extending our leadership position as the world's largest virtual casino."
WildTangent introduced a new channel dedicated to social games in July, which lets players leverage their WildCoins to get more from their gaming experience on Facebook. DoubleDown Casino is the first casino-style game on the social games channel for WildTangent where players can use their WildCoins to get more virtual chips to play blackjack or slot machines with their friends.
"DoubleDown Casino is a virtual Vegas, and there's simply no other social game like it," said Sean Vanderdasson, senior vice president at WildTangent. "We've hit the jackpot with DoubleDown Casino as our players can take advantage of WildCoins, get in-game chips and power-ups to make the game even more entertaining."
The partnership with WildTangent also follows the wildly popular release of slot tournaments on DoubleDown Casino. Game titles for slot tournaments include Fireworks, Classic, Wild Safari, Mayan Gold and just released, Horoscope Slots.
Future games titles are released frequently on DoubleDown Casino, along with additional platform updates that take the interactive experience to a whole new level.
