If you talk about anyone but Zynga in relation to social network gaming people may start to look at you as if you have a fetus growing out of the side of your face – such is the closed mindedness of Facebook users.
But like when you thought there was nothing but Myspace, and fast food wasn’t limited to White Castle, there’s choice when it comes to social network gaming. Now we’re not suggesting they’ll have anywhere near the success Facebook or McDonalds have had, but DoubleDown Casino already looks to be doing fairly well.
Since launching on Facebook earlier this year, DoubleDown has become one of the fastest growing social networking destinations on the Internet, with over 100,000 daily users playing on their variety of social casino games.
Greg Enell, co-founder and CEO of DoubleDown Casinos commented: “DoubleDown Casino is experiencing rapid growth — adding more than 10,000 new players each day – with enough daily players to fill every hotel room on the Las Vegas strip,”
“We are attracting and retaining high volumes of gambling oriented consumers at a time when acquiring new customers is more important than ever for Las Vegas. Given the superior quality of our games, coupled with our use of key social features to drive viral distribution, we’re already hosting over 1 million hands of blackjack and 56 million lines of slot play on a daily basis.”
He also commented that he “likes” the App on Facebook.
