In a bid to reach out to younger players, Gamblit Gaming has teamed up with game publisher Lima Sky to bring popular game Doodle Jump to the casino floor.
Launched in 2009, Doodle Jump has been released across multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Arcades, Windows, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS, and has been downloaded more than 250 million times. Now, a real money version of the game will hit casino floors in early 2018 on Gamblit’s TriStation game machine and G-Sports eSports platform.
Matt Turetzky, chief operating officer at Lima Sky, said: “Real-money wagering will add another level of excitement and engagement while still keeping true to the core elements of the game that have made Doodle Jump such a long-standing hit among fans.”
Gamblit’s Model G game tables are live in Las Vegas, while the TriStation platform is scheduled to launch this summer. Gamblit’s hardware and games have been deployed in several locations, including Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, the Hakkasan Group managed Level Up gaming lounge at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, the LINQ Hotel & Casino, Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and The Venetian Las Vegas.
Gamblit’s skill games and tables are also live at Harrah’s Resort Southern California, the first location in the state to offer skill games, as well as Harrah’s Lake Tahoe Hotel & Casino and three Carnival Cruise ships.
Recently, Gamblit signed a deal with the Downstream Casino Resort, which is operated by the Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma. Under the deal, the game venue will offer Cannonbeard’s Treasure and Gamblit Poker games via the Model G game tables.
In an interview with Gambling Insider, Gamblit Gaming CEO Eric Meyerhofer attributed the company’s success to “talent, flexibility and agility.”
“We are also quick to abandon ideas that develop too many issues, while preserving an environment where all ideas are honored,” Meyerhofer told the news outlet. “To me, open communication is of fundamental importance, although looking at a singular idea from various angles can be quite mentally challenging at times; the opinions of our numerous departments can clash, but this communication is necessary to get the very best out of our product.”
