RealNetworks Casino Becomes First Social Casino to Give Away Large Sum in Sweepstake
GameHouse Casino Plus, the Facebook and mobile casino from RealNetworks – the company behind former video giant RealPlayer – has given away its first ever Golden Dreams Sweepstake $100,000 cash prize, and the winner was a 65 year old grandmother from Buffalo, New York, who collected the prize on her birthday!
The company has also announced the addition of new mobile casino games and extra mobile support as the social casino continues to grow. This sweepstake prize was the first of its kind amongst social casinos, and signals a big change in the potential of the social mobile gambling industry.
Previously, the social gambling industry has seemingly been restricted to mobile slots and multiplayer games that have no real meaning. With casino companies looking for ways to monetize the hugely popular freemium model, it seems as if RealNetworks may have found the carrot that can make the difference.
Ken Murphy, VP of Studios at GameHouse, said: “GameHouse Casino Plus has revolutionized the social casino space, and now that we’ve brought the Golden Dreams Sweepstakes experience to iOS and Android mobile devices, eligible players will have more ways to enter a sweepstakes for real cash while enjoying fun, free game play across devices.”
With online casinos unavailable to Americans, this sweepstakes model is the perfect chance for companies to get a foothold in a big gambling market. With the Golden Dreams Sweepstake open to residents of 31 states as well as DC – other players will only be able to collect virtual coins – Americans are starting to take note of social casinos like never before.
