GIBRALTAR, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting today, gamers can re-live the glory days of one of the Las Vegas Strip's most fabled casinos with Stardust Casino, the newest title from Win, the social gaming company backed by bwin.party.
Developed in partnership with Boyd Gaming Corporation (NYSE: BYD), one of America's leading casino entertainment companies, Stardust Casino invites players to journey into vintage Las Vegas while trying their luck at Win's unique brand of slots, blackjack, roulette and other social casino games.
Stardust Casino combines the nostalgic charm of vintage Las Vegas with today's state of the art technology to bring the famed casino to life like never before. Players enter the Stardust Casino lobby, recreated in stunning 3D high definition. From there, players can pull up a VIP chair and play slots, blackjack and roulette, moving up the ranks from Novice to High Roller as they earn Experience Points for their play. All of the games feature high production value artwork, intuitive controls, and exciting gameplay in an environment reminiscent of the glory days of the legendary resort.
"The Stardust represents everything that was great about the early days of Las Vegas, and we are proud to work with Boyd Gaming to help bring this legendary brand back to life," said Barak Rabinowitz, CEO of Win. "Our aim was to recapture the romance and adventure of vintage Las Vegas, and what better way to do that than to recreate online the legendary Stardust Casino?"
The Stardust was the largest casino in Nevada when it opened its doors in 1958, and the image of its unique, star-studded marquee remains one of the most globally-renowned symbols of Las Vegas.
"The Win team has done a fantastic job recapturing the unique gaming experience that made the Stardust an iconic part of Las Vegas history," said Bob Boughner, Executive Vice President and Chief Business Development Officer of Boyd Gaming. "This game is truly a worthy successor to the legendary Stardust name."
