6 March 2014, Athens, Greece (Press Release) — Mobile social casino games publisher AbZorba Games® has expanded its partnership with messaging and entertainment platform Tango to include a new branded multiplayer Poker game.
The addition of Poker for Tango means the popular messaging platform now has AbZorba’s full portfolio of multiplayer social casino games on Android and iOS, alongside Roulette Live for Tango, Slots for Tango and the hugely successful Blackjack Live for Tango.
Blackjack Live for Tango was the first release to follow the strategic mobile entertainment partnership between AbZorba and Tango, and hit #1 in the US iTunes App Store for casino games last year. Live Roulette also attained #4.
AbZorba, a founder member of the International Social Games Association (ISGA), expects the release to further demonstrate the strength of the multiplayer social casino genre on over-the-top (OTT) networks.
“The addition of Poker for Tango completes a ‘Full House’ of co-branded game titles from us and demonstrates Tango’s faith in the strength of AbZorba’s game technology and know how,” Andrew Hughes, AbZorba Games CEO and co-founder, said.
“Now is a huge time for the OTT space, following the sale of WhatsApp. We are determined to show the value that multiplayer social casino games can provide in helping Tango monetise their service,” he added.
“We are excited to add Poker to Tango’s collection of AbZorba’s multiplayer casino games, now we have 100% of their portfolio, “ says VP Partnerships Renato Iwesen. “AbZorba is our model partner with already three very successful games on our platform reaching the coveted #1 and #4 in iTunes Casino Games together.”
Poker for Tango is available for download from the iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPad, or from the Google Play Store.
