Over 600 000 downloads in short time
Last month’s edition of SGN US mobile gaming developer, an i-Phone application titled the MiniTycoon Casino has become increasingly popular with over 600 000 downloads from Apple's iStore.
MiniTycoon lets users create their own virtual casino and play a range of games, such as slots, roulette and card tables, awarding chips for the best designed venue.
According to SGN CEO Randy Breen, “As mobile social gaming continues to pick up steam among audiences, we expected MiniTycoon Casino to takeoff. However, we were surprised by its tremendous out-of-the-gate success.
"The appeal of MiniTycoon Casino is that it allows players to create the casino of their dreams and show them off to their friends as well as competing players. The new holiday themes expand the creative choices for players as they build their empires and cash in this holiday season.”
He also added that the game banked almost 300 billion chips so far and that, since it can support a high number of concurrent users,’ gamers have been inviting friends to join in via Facebook or Twitter and post their achievements.“The game is also connected to Game Center, Apple's social game initiative on iPhone, allowing players to connect and share their progress and compete on the leaderboards,” he explained.
