WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?


Did you know that 82% of social casino players visit land-based casino within the past year? And 60% have visited in the past 6 months? It is critical for land-based casinos to have an online social casino presence. There are opportunities to…

  1. Heighten player experience: It will increase the players floor value by 2X! Social casino player average revenue is much higher than that of a leading B2C social casino game.
  2. Increase brand awareness: Your social casino is an extension of your casino, reinforcing your brand and property.
  3. Complement your land-based casino: Players are interested in connecting their social gameplay and land-based rewards. Re-engage your players, reactivate churned players and bring them back to your casino.
