GameHouse Cashes In On Social Casino Games With New Releases On Facebook and iOS

GameHouse, a trusted provider of casual games, launches GameHouse Casino on Facebook and brings its social casino hit, GameHouse Slots, to iOS

SEATTLE, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GameHouse, a trusted name for over a decade among people who love to play casual games, announced today it released a free-to-play title called GameHouse Casino on Facebook. Also, the Company announced today that GameHouse Slots is available as a free iOS app download through the iTunes App Store, in addition to Facebook. These titles mark a new tidal wave of innovation for social casino games – a category that has gained tremendous popularity among players across Facebook, iPhones and iPads.

GameHouse Casino and GameHouse Slots Takes A Very Hot Young Gaming Category Forward
GameHouse Casino offers more than a dozen games, including a variety of slot games, video poker, blackjack and roulette – all tied together with captivating graphics, animations and social gameplay experiences. The themed slot machines within GameHouse Casino have been carefully designed to give players a world-class casino experience. In addition to slots, GameHouse Casino delivers an unparalleled video poker experience that holds six different machines, and plays up to 25 hands at a time. GameHouse's video poker machines also feature side bets, double-or-nothing jackpots, and high/low plays to increase the odds of winning. For those looking to hit a hot streak at the tables, GameHouse Casino also features 3-hand or 6-hand Black Jack as well as American and European Roulette.

GameHouse Casino offers more than just a growing collection of games. GameHouse designed its latest casino offerings for people who want to play with friends and have real social gaming experiences. This new title marks another major step forward for GameHouse towards bringing players even more innovative social gaming experiences to Facebook. Players will find a highly dynamic lobby inside GameHouse Casino where they can instantly discover game tables, video poker, and slot machines recently played by their friends. Players can even jump-in on the fun – just like a real Vegas-style casino – through a unique Party Play feature that easily shows what games friends are playing. Another social perk inside GameHouse Casino is the Mystery Friend Multiplier, which sends a free gift to a player's friend of choice, and gives the player a bonus game multiplier of up to five times the winnings.

The launch of GameHouse Casino on Facebook comes after the success of GameHouse Slots, which already has a growing fan-base of more than a million players on Facebook. Now available on iTunes, GameHouse Slots for iPhone and iPad can be played virtually anywhere -- giving players the chance to win big, increase their score, unlock new games, and invite friends to come join the fun. Already, the game is one of the top casino and card games in the U.S. on iTunes.

GameHouse Builds On Growing Momentum In The Social Casino Games Market
These two titles underscore GameHouse's commitment to deliver casual and casino gameplay experiences that people love to play. Social games have already become a cultural phenomenon, due in large part to the emergence of casino-based experiences in recent years. In fact, Morgan Stanley Research projects annual revenues for social casino games to hit $2.5 billion by 2015, thus making it one of the fastest growing gaming categories today.

"GameHouse has created casual games for more than a decade.  Now more than ever – thanks to social networks, smartphones and tablets – consumers in the millions have access to video games that they never had access to before." said Matt Hulett, President of GameHouse. "We see the social casino space as a big opportunity for the company since this category of gameplay is so popular on every platform. Vegas-style gaming is a real interest for millions of people around the world and we're excited to be building an experience for consumers across all of their devices, anytime everywhere."
